From Above Comic Book

Just compiled the rough pencil layouts with the dialogue and script for Issue 1 and gave it a test read to check the flow of the story and dialogue. Even ran it by "The Editor" - my toughest critic. Preliminary thumbs up but still needs some tweaks. For the most part though it seems to be working nicely with solid pacing and dialogue. Will be able to move onto pencil refinements and inking shortly. Onward and upward
