Hey, man, this is my thought process.
So these two guys, Carl and Esden, are about to go to this rager of a party, but before the party there is this little quiet moment of them chatting in the car, not a super serious conversation, just a couple of dudes talking.
I thought I could just write whatever, and whatever would be random enough, but what I found was that in a book everything takes on a little more meaning.
This dialogue seems to reveal something personal about the main character Carl and his struggles with girls. And he is a little bit awkward around girls, but it never comes up again, so to me this dialogue seems a little misleading.
It hints at too much.
But I really like the look and flow of the panels.
Which created the task of writing new dialogue, random dialogue, that would fit into the word balloons.
And so, an intellectually stimulating discussion of the respective values of Milla Jovavich and Denise Richards in the minds of seventeen year old boys in 1998. It doesn’t raise any expectations but does further cement the time the story takes place and the age and maturity levels of the characters.
You can see the whole thing when All Star comes out.
