Axe-Job for the best of 2011

I feel awful I haven't posted anything in like two weeks - BUT this weekend there will be progress. You can hold me to that!

Here's page 70 posted up. Another great scene of exposition with Ian Escutcheon. He's sort of a gatekeeper of information, and luckily the protagonists ask questions, so they get answers unless there's a problem of some sort.

You can see that I've had difficultly maintaining consistency in Escutcheon's appearance, he just doesn't quite resemble Gene Wilder like he should, but ... as I may have said before, Wilder was just a reference point.

Dr. Howard Bolam finally catches up with Ian Escutcheon, but their meeting is cut short by an devastating interruption in Why, what happened in there?

Steve Jobs comic book: Local firm Jess3 ventures into 'business folklore'
Andrew Beaujon

Jesse Thomas, the CEO of local creative firm Jess3, was at lunch with Bruce Upbin, an editor at Forbes, last May when he and Jess3's Leslie Bradshaw pitched a graphic account of what Thomas calls the Apple co-founder's "lost years" -- after he got forced out of Apple in 1985. It was "this mysterious time where he went through some kind of change and came back the person we know," Thomas says.

Forbes bought the idea immediately, Thomas says. Caleb Melby, a Forbes reporter, was assigned to write the text; Jess3 handled hiring illustrators and bringing the resulting book, The Zen of Steve Jobs, together.
