The Black Marker Detective took an interesting turn last night when I was drawing the new page. You can see it tomorrow when it goes up. But when I drew a naked multiple limb amputee hanging from the ceiling by a chain I thought, this may be getting a bit twisted, even for me. Now yes, parts of the comic that take place in hell are going to be a bit twisted. It's hell. But tomorrow's page just has me looking at my work a bit differently. It's one of those moments where you finish a page, pick it up and look at it, and say, "Where the hell did that come from?"
I don't know why I'm only doing this now. I have a whole story arc that will be coming up in another two chapters that takes place in hell. (Most of it is already drawn) There's twisted stuff in that one. But this is the first time I have drawn naked amputees and there's just something about thr whole experience that has me a little weirded out.
I guess maybe it's one of those, "I did not know that about you" moments, only I'm saying it to myself...
Oh and don't worry. The comic is not going to turn into another "Jack". Not that that's a bad thing. Jack is the greatest comic I have ever read. But it's not what my comic is meant to be.
