This isn’t a review of the film and there aren’t any spoilers, but it is a wall of text about this comic and MCU compatibility, so, you know, do as you will.
rurone asked: Thank you for this comic! It's inspired me to get back into drawing and to start experimenting with pen and ink, which I'm finding I like quite a lot and wouldn't have contemplated trying on my own. I'm having trouble getting my ink washes onto the computer with any kind of fidelity -- how did you get the great look on the piece with Mrs Rogers?
I’m so pleased! Very best of luck, too. Ink is awesome :) Yay!
With regard to getting the washes to reproduce on the computer, there are a few tricks: always scan in color to get the full tone of the washes (I quite often convert that to b&w in photoshop, but usually after I’ve done everything else); scan as a tiff, not a jpg; make sure you scan at at least 300 dpi (you can go higher - 600dpi would be required for a book - but 300 is totally fine for web/most mini comic situations actually tbh); adjust the levels. Once I scan in the image, I adjust the levels to make white white, and then the rest to… well, get it as close to the image I scanned as possible.
Finally, not all scanning programs/scanners are created equal. Someone else can probably weigh in with better advice than this, but I actually use Preview and I like it quite a lot (I used to use dedicated Epson software, but Preview is treating me better).
Hopefully at least some of that is helpful. I wish you the very best in your drawing endeavours!
Reschedule, Pt. 1.
So this chapter of my thesis is taking me way longer to finish than I anticipated, and I haven’t had a lot of time to do any inking. That’s why I decided that I’m gonna bring you this one in short little instalments too.
It’s not gonna be long like Little Dog, but the next couple of strips will be sequential.

Impressively Fucked Up.
More comics I’ll never draw.
