From Strip To Script – Why I Hate Saturn

By Josh Hechinger Welcome to From Strip to Script, where I take a page of finished comic art and try to derive a script from it, to see what I can learn from the exercise. Appropriately enough for the page we're about to look at, I am completely, utterly, entirely blocked up when it comes […]
