Thanks guys glad you like it. Hoping to get to the conclusion tommorow so stay tuned.

Are you planing to colour these pages? I know you were talking about hand-painting them. Is that still your intention?

Yeah all the pages are pencilled on watercolour intention was originally to do them a little more as single illustrative plates with a caption of dialogue at the bottom (Which was hopefully going to speed up the process too)...similar to punch cartoons and then paint them. But it just never turned out that way.
So...maybe. I'll certainly clean it up and print a small run i reckon. Maybe take copies to SD.
But i might get to painting them someday.

It's all marvellous (you bloody bastard), but the splash page with the balloon over the map is a masterstroke. Aren't comics wonderful!

Lord Holgate, you have brought much mirth with your preceedings and scribblings. Why, I'd almost believe you are French, with your hilarity. I'd wager you make love with your face.

It does, though, cause much angst that every year you leave the classes unfullfilled with incomplete stories.

Jolly good show, brandy at 8.

The splash page Patrick mentioned was seriously the one where I was ready to eat my hat. Well, you know I would have, if I had a hat handy. You draw insanely cute dogs, too.

Hot stuff as always, Doug! Your 24 hour comic is always something to look forward to, and it delivers to boot. :D

Thanks guys. Glad you like it.
Why do all my comics lately involve canines?!

Anyway I'm cleaning it up and concluding it over the next week or so. But it's going to be published as part of Flight #3 so unfortunately the wait for the GRIPPING conclusion will take a little while longer.

Thanks for all the kind words.


Also here is that code thing -

Code: Select all
$artist='Doug Holgate';
$title='Checkmate Wordsworth';
$pageimages = array(
   1 => "",
   2 => "",
   3 => "",
   4 => "",
   5 => "",
   6 => "",
   7 => "",
   8 => "",
   9 => "",
   10 => "",
   11 => "",
   12 => "",
   13 => "",
   14 => "",
   15 => "",
   16 => "",

I absolutely love the expression on Agent E's face, in the last panel on page 15.

Well done, old bean.
