The Chained Gun, Last Airbender and City Troll speak

You have any idea what an ambulance looks like in Marseilles? I sure didn't, but did my best to figure it out and make it happen for the first page of this scene, You Son of a Bitch, Bolam. I like how this scene worked out, mostly because I was really happy with how the story and the artwork came together.

An interview with Aaron Whitaker

Ao Meng

Kickstarter and websites like it allow creators to publicly ask for financial assistance in seeing the completion of a project that the creators themselves would not have the funds to realize.
