Shakespeare Manga has landed on B&N & Amazon [Feb. 5th, 2008|09:50 pm]
Shakespeare Manga Creator Roundtable

The official release date for Wiley's Shakespeare Manga is February 11th but somehow it ended up in Amazon and Barnes and Noble sooner. So soon that you can order it right now and have it at your doorstep the day after you order it.
I don't know about other Barnes and Noble but in NYC you can get it today in the Shakespeare section not the manga section. Here is a shot of it all lined up and shiny.

shakespeare manga lined up in Barnes and Noble Store

You can order it through Amazon in the links provided.
Romeo & Juliet by Yali
Hamlet by Tintin
Macbeth by Eve and Candice
Julius Caesar by me.

hope y'all enjoy. If you have any criticism email me or post it and tell me about it, I will read it and hopefully make the next comic without those flaws.

at loong last! the pencils for hamlet! I usually make rough pencils and finish the drawings at the inking stage, but these are pretty tight pencils for me! the lettering is still being worked on though, I finally figured out how to use Illustrator for lettering. photoshop is a be-yotch!

I was looking at the hamlet manga strip being developed by Self Made Hero in UK and noticed that both of our hamlets have platinum blonde hair. What is up with that? What is it about the Danish Prince that makes people want to color him as an albino? Reminds me of Elric of Melnibone'.....hmm, white haired bastards......

 on to ACT TWO

Hamlet comic is coming akong well! just finished scanning act one . Now for the tedious task of compositing. I thought I'd be done sooner if I just photocopied the art, but you lose so much quality that i t decided to scan the pages in bits and stick them together in photoshop. here's a teaser of the final inks. It's one of my favorite panels because it took so long to ink, and all you really see is Hamlet's damn big eye.

Guys, I think I just noticed something. Since each Act starts with an even numbered-page (on the left-hand side)- the Act Title pages are always gonna be on a right-side page (odd numbered page).

This means that the Act Title pages will always be on an odd-numbered page (on the right side).
For this to happen, every Act has to end on an even number. For example, Act one cannot end on page 33, it has to end on 32 or 34.

 Furthermore, the Act Title page is already numbered as if it were a normal comics page. That means that if an Act is 34 pages, that 34 pages is made up of 33 comics pages and one Act Title page. 

Am I correct? Somedbody please verify this, my math/number skills are atrocious! I think I understoond it the first time, but I'm not taking any chances.

By the way, what is everyone using to screentone...do you have a screentone program? I was planning to use photoshop but want to start experimenting with commercial tones.

And does anyone but eve ink digitally? im finding it's a pain in the ass to scan each page twice because they're too big
