As of this moment, I have officially finished the final script for PANNED! and am ready to send it off to Toni for illustration. The process of bringing this particular arc in the series was so damn rough for reasons I hadn’t anticipated. I set out to tell a story about action, humor, redemption and all the other things that connects humans to humans, but along the way, I discovered that what this story was really about was loss. Sure all those other emotions and motives factored into it in some way or form, but in the end, it was the things that the characters had lost that set them into motion.
I can identify with that, so it made me grow closer to the characters I had penned, which made giving them the proper send-off in this particular series high on the list of important accomplishments. I went through several endings for Crespo and the rest of the cast, but the one that appears in the final pages of PANNED! turned out to be the best for them all.
The story releases and unfolds in the coming months. As of right now, we’ve got three issues available on www.brokeniconcomics.com, with the remaining three issues to be released consecutively in the very near future. Check it out. It’s a story that Toni and I are very proud of. We’ve worked hard to bring it to life, and hope that our hard work pays off by providing our readers with one hell of a tale.
