“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

STREET FIGHTER II_samples
Here are two sample pages from a four page script written by my good friend Jonathan Tsuei. Jon is a young, aspiring writer who wants to write comic books for a living. Yeah, he's a kooky kid. He and I are going to try to 'break in' together - him as a writer and me as an artist. It'll be a gas.
Okay, the pretty fella' on these pages is supposed to be 'Vega' from Street Fighter II. Yes. I *know* he doesn't look like Vega - jeezus. I didn't say this whole breaking in thing was going to be easy. The big galoot he's fighting is inspired by 'Bane' from the old Batman: The Animated series. I couldn't come up with a cool looking bad guy so I just used him.
Okay, that's all for now. More tomorrow.
