on Local, 2/2/06
One thing that occured to me as I was prepping Local #4 for print is that, unlike Demo, I am consciously considering the collected edition as I write the stories. Demo was deliberatly such a pure single-issue experience, that during the act of creating it I never considered how the stories would sit next to each other, read back to back, without a month's time separating them.
But now that I have the experience of seeing Demo collected all in one book, this is informing how I write Local. Interesting. To me, anyway.
AICN chimed in on Local yesterday, as well as other recent Oni releases:
and yielded this very flattering quote:
"So big ups to Wood and Kelly. They’re working in some kind of magical synchronicity, they’ve got a concept the biz has never seen, and they’re at the forefront of the movement to revitalize the standalone issue in comics (see also, JONAH HEX; FELL). Pretty cool stuff. In fact, at three issues in I’m confident enough in the series to start thinking of it as an early frontrunner for best miniseries of ’06."
