Remarkably, the script for this issue mostly stayed unchanged during production.
I re-jigged some of the panel layouts that didn’t work, and added and subtracted images, but text mostly remained the same.
One of additions I made is on this page, and I kinda regret it now.
Originally, in the first panel, Vamos didn’t comment on where he got the Sheriff’s vest. While I was finalizing this page, I decided to add the “FYI” line about how he “got it” from a cop he took out.
I wanted to make it explicit that he had already had a run-in with the law, possibly during his escape, and that his outfit was cobbled together.
While I still agree with the purpose behind the “FYI” line, I don’t think the actual text here works. It’s too on the nose. Too clumsy.
There’s something off about the action panels, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Too much white space perhaps? Or maybe the panel where Vamos checks the cop needs to be bigger?
I really like Meteor’s transformation, which is a shame, because I’m not sure exactly what I did. I tried to replicate it recently, but I couldn’t get the effect to look the same.
