Denver Comic Con
June 30 - July 2, 2017
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that old newsreel footage take on this with the film grain and scratches! Fun way to reveal these characters…
Truly fantastic. You get the sense of dread through the film reel.
Thanks, guys! We’ve been looking forward to this scene for a long time, so I’m glad you like it. Now I can’t wait for you to see the next few pages!
Al, how’d you get the newsreel grain effect? It looks great!
The magician never reveals his tricks to the audience. . .
Without getting overly technical: the scratches and grain are on a layer above the rest of the artwork; it’s essentially black with the scratches and other marks in white. Photoshop allows me to adjust how a layer interacts with those below it, so I tried different modes until I found one that made the art look distressed in a way that wasn’t too obnoxious.
have you done that thing were the “heroes” have enemies with similar powers and thats who they fight
No, outside of one matched set, the Specialists and the Übermenschen all have pretty distinctive powers.
Al, this really looks great!
Well, what do you know? Actual superpeople!
A metal man with a gun-arm, a speedster, a phase-through guy and a telepathic girl, well those Russians are screwed.
Yeah, how do you say “Aw, crap!” in Russian?
(The metal guy is actually holding his cannon, but now that you say that, I almost wish it was his arm! How cool would that be?)
If you have not read it “Bitter Seeds” by Ian Tregillis is all about the Ubermenschen. A pretty good story line if you like alternative history stories. Keep up the good work.
Thanks, Vileham, I’ll check it out!
And I’d expect all Nazi supermen/women to have blonde hair and blue eyes.
These are not Übermenschen in the classic, Aryan sense. They didn’t gain their powers by being genetically “pure”. This will become clearer as more is revealed about their origins.
