.....can't.... see.... blinded..... by..... lens..... flare..... Aaaahhrrrrggggh!

Other than that - it looks good.

Nice job mimicing laser speckle. (although laser sights were almost unknown in the Carter era, because laser diodes hadn't become available yet).

Somehow, I would have expected the presidiential panels to be a little less warm and fuzzy.

Yea, the lensflares bug me too, but that's just cause I despise the default ones. Here is a good tut on how to "manage" them better. http://www.guerillapixel.com/pages/digi ... e_main.htm

That's just what they want you to think. I suppose you expect me to believe they Didn't actually find an alien baby too?

Hey, guys.
I just stumbled on this link to Supreme Power.
If you haven't had a chance to read #1, you can check it out here.
The visuals are a bit edited for content (PG), so no worries.

I did not read that word as "diodes" the first time. :oops:

My first reaction was, "They have laser-sighted ones now?!"

Sorry...sorry....

Hey Soto, I read the whole thing, and remembered seeing sample pages on here before. The whole thing turned out really nice. Love the George Bush Sr. And that scene with the puppy...well, that's just messed up.

LOL. <--- usually stay away from that, as it's usually just an untrue nicety. Not this time, though! It took my innocent mind a full 2 seconds to realize what you were thinking. That's kind of a funny visual...

(oh, and so as to not totally stray from the thread topic, Soto- I enjoy your work on Supreme Power, as well as most of the other books you've been working on lately. By the way, Soto, were you asked to be back onboard Empire when it was relaunched? I'm assuming yes, and that you were too busy to take it).

Okay, now that you guys git your minds out of the gutters... Oh, wait...Gutterzombies! Now it makes perfect sense.

Anywho...
Glad you liked the book. That poor puppy. He never even had a chance.
I still haven't seen it printed yet. Deadlines have kept me from going to the shop, and I never seem to get comps until about a month after the book comes out.

Joel-
Since you asked about Empire, the long and short of it is this.
I had a lot of conversations with Mark and Barry about returning with them and we were pretty much a "go". DC took a really long time to get back to me about some of my concerns (production, schedueling and rates were the main topics). After a couple of conversations with the editor we ironed out every point except for one (can you guess which?) and I was told that DC had some flexibility when it came to the budget for writting or artwork, but not for coloring/production. Usually something like this isn't a big sticking point, but I have a ton of medical bills that have piled up on me over the last year, and I can't afford to not take care of them, and I just coudn't afford to take such a huge cut. Add that to the insult of not being considered part of the "art team" and it didn't turn out very well. (The "official" response is that my current schedule couldn't sustain Empire and the other books I work on.)
The day after my dealings with DC fell through with Empire, I landed Supreme Power, so all's well that ends well.

Ah yes. We are considered "production" or even post-production, which does hurt...I've been through that, although not on a larger scale like yourself. I hope that will change soon. I think it's an editorial/powers-that-be thing, as most writers, pencilers and inkers seem to be loyal to their colorists. Thankfully, ones I've worked with are extremely loyal to me.

Good luck with the personal as well as professional. :)
