Chip, who wrote one of the greatest short stories I've ever read (and I'm so happy I had the privilege of drawing) sent me layouts since we had a somewhat short deadline. I was able to pencil, ink and color the 21-page issue in about 2 and a half weeks.
Chip gave me freedom to go off of his outline. Although I agreed with many of his choices anyway, it's always fun to put your own touches on things.
Below is one of my favorite panels - where Shocket touches Linda's arm lovingly - a little thing I slipped in because I adored their relationship so much.

My wonderful husband (who knew Jack Kirby in life) did color assist on the Silver Surfer pages - because I really wanted to get the Kirby-ness in there as much as possible! And he nailed it!
