And if you like, you can also go to the dedicated Al’Rashad site.
Davinder really nailed poor Joro’s face. Nice use of minimalism.
What’s the liklihood of seeing Al’Rashad collected in a print version? Preferably one with tidbits and authors’ notes!
I think Davinder and Chris should finish it before they start shopping it around as a potential GN.
This seems like the sort of thing Oni would be interested, among other indie presses. Hell, Chris lives in Toronto. If he could get a small print run done he could get a modest little table at TCAF; Chris Butcher can, iirc, usually be persuaded to cut a deal for local artists.
That is the longterm plan, yes. I know Davinder wants to do a “special edition” on a few pages and the possibility for a color edition is one I find really tempting. Plus, yeah, author’s notes and maybe a 16-page glossary of the world.
I’d say “okay, so we Kickstarter it,” but the truth is that the comic, at present, does not have enough readership to make such a Kickstarter financially feasible right now.
This may just be me, but I think color would actually sort of detract from the current art. Maybe some shading or suchly, but this was clearly drawn with the intention of being black-and-white and the art reflects that; adding color after the fact would be sort of meh. See: Scott Pilgrim.
The question of colourizaton brought V for Vendetta to mind. I think that Davinder’s approach differs from Lloyd’s such that colour would be less disruptive, since it could fill in existing outlines instead of establishing them. That said, I love this in black and white, and would want to see a very delicate touch taken.
