So... I have two comic books that I really, really like. One is a "drawn novel" entitled Capote in Kansas, written by Ande Parks and illustrated by Chris Samnee. I bought it because I'm a sucker for Truman Capote, and because the artwork is amazing. It's gorgeous, it's beautiful, it's really stark black-and-white and I love, love, love it.
The other is Ted Naifeh's Courtney Crumrin series... OMG new book being published later this year SQUEE YES. The series just charms the pants off me. It's also gorgeous B&W, but not as stark as Capote in Kansas.
Anyway... I posted pages 2 & 3 of Case Files and was immediately dissatisfied. Too much grey, too flat, too blah, not liking it.
So I tried some ink. I don't know.
