Hogtown Spirits #1: Wyatt Blake is out tomorrow! Here's a look at the art for Page 3 featuring our main character Wyatt and the Night Howl's bartender Dash Hamilton. Take a look at that bottom left panel, with Wyatt appearing inside the shape of a bottle. There's a lot more like that in the pages after this, where Barb really went after the mood and the emotions of the characters and story, instead of whatever boring description I wrote in the script. That panel perfectly encapsulates Wyatt at that moment, and the pages Barb made after this she really pushed herself with the layouts. They were so great that when I got the final art back I scrapped a lot of dialogue and captions, keeping only the bare minimum needed, so that the art could tell the story. The whole book became a lot more moody and dreamlike than just noir, which is what I was going for, but Barb really brought it to life and solidified that, better than I was imagining.
The script is below for this page if you're interested the dialogue that's happening here (I know the document below says Page 4 instead of 3 but that is the correct script page, in the actual book the page numbers fall a bit different due to a credits page).
Pick it up tomorrow on Comixology or Gumroad and let us know what you think!
