I figured I'd start up a series of journals concerning the production of The Gamma Gals Volume 1. But first, a quick recap for those folks just tuning in: The Gamma Gals is a comic book series that follows the exploits of three teenage girls that gain superpowers after their hometown is hit by a gamma irradiated electrical storm. I planned on releasing the first volume sometime during the summer, and I'm still targeting that goal, but outside circumstances may have the release end up pushed back a little bit. Ideally, not by much.
So, what's new? Well, my Surface Pro battery died a few weeks ago, and I had to replace it, which delayed things a bit. In the meantime, it got me back to doodling, of which I added three new sketches of Gamma Gals Harriet
, and Kira
. Once I got my replacement battery in the mail, I moved on to writing the script for the first issue of The Gamma Gals! After writing and reworking it a bit, it is officially complete, and I'm very pleased with the results of the Gamma Gal's first adventure! And today, I started work on the script for issue 2. I'm not 100% sure how long this story arc is going to be, but I'm targeting four 22 page issues, so 88 pages. Once I've finished writing the issues, I'll be moving on to thumbnail sketches, then producing the actual pages. Naturally, I plan on chronicling that process as well.
And that's about all for this first update. I hope to have more news once Issue 2's script is in the bag. So long, everybody!
