Pages From Book Two...spoiler?

This is a 2-page spread from book two. I don't think it really spoils anything other than now knowing there's a dinosaur in it...but I think that will be apparent from the cover.  Anyhoo, I like this shot.  Book Two moves a little quicker than Book One with a bit more action :)

Amity Blamity Origins #8

I always knew I didn't want Gretchen to talk but was still experimenting with how to visually show her communicating through writing in her litle notepad.

Amity Blamity ORIGINS #6

This strip introduces Downey's haven behind the barn.  Inspired by outdoor sofas from Bloom County, the house is based on the house my grandpa built in Newfoundland Canada in 1950 and the barn is modeled after one of two that were adjacent to the house I had while I lived in Nova Scotia.  Both drawn from memory.
