Well, the layouts are, anyway. But they're awfully good-looking layouts. Everything except page 12, which is going to be a splash page showing Megumi punching a guy out...once I have time to look up the references and actually draw it. I know what it's going to look like; I just have to get the actual lines onto the paper.
The story for that issue was resolved in 20 pages, which is pretty good; 20 pages is about a month's issue, more or less.
I think I will continue to try to keep stories within the 20-page mark. Of course these stories all fit into the larger framework of Megumi's senior year of high school and the changes she goes through as her life progresses.
The Hand may have other ideas, though, of course.
My original plans for this morning included starting work on issue #2, but the way I feel right now I may just go to bed once this is finished. It was a double-truck night and I'm exhausted.
At least for the moment, issue #2 is going to deal with the introduction of Hiroaki, the exceedingly unpopular love interest...again, that may change.
Also, at some point, I'm thinking of making the layouts available on-line. I have about 15 MB of web page space through Yahoo!, so all I'd have to do is hack together some HTML and upload suitable versions of the page images.
There's an ant on my keyboard. Looks like it's time for some new ant traps.
More later...like tomorrow.
