Blackburn Burrow Comic Spotlight #1
Matthew Dow Smith, illustrator of Blackburn Burrow Issue #1, talks about his favorite part of the comic (the first from Amazon Studios):
I’m pretty proud of the whole thing, but I really like this opening sequence that we did, where writer Ron [Marz], really set the tone for the entire book within those 10 pages. We’re cutting back and forth with Mister entering a spooky mansion off to fight something bad while two other characters are on the other side of town talking about him. …
It’s the kind of scene I really like to do because there’s a fun storytelling trick going on. … The two characters talking about Mister are moving from the right side of each panel to the left side of each panel, while Mister is moving from the left side of each panel to the right side of the panel. … It’s just supposed to be a subtle thing that you don’t quite register, but it helps the storytelling work on a subconscious level.
