IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Icarus is a comic by Ryan Cody and is serialized here on Robot 6, with new pages every Monday, Wednesday & Friday.
A two-for today. Here is our introduction to Delphi, a very important character in the world of ICARUS, probably the most important. Page 10 was unique and a lot of fun to do. I knew early on in the scripting phase that I wanted her dream/vision to look like something a young child may imagine so I enlisted my three boys to help me out. I roughly laid out the page, taking about 10 minutes, then I turned panels 1 & 2 over to my 7 year-old who inked it and colored it. Panel 3 my 10-year old inked and colored and panels 4 & 5 my 12-year old did. I then scanned the page in and adjusted the colors so they would print better. I get a lot of feedback on this page at conventions, people seem to dig it and it really helped me tell the story I wanted to.
