these are the first 2 two page episodes of "Familiar", my first attempt with a long term narrative in comics. I began this as an assignment for a class but it has since taken on a life of its own. I estimate that this specific story is going to take 6 more pages to finish (or three episodes) It was kind of a shock to the system at first, spending so much time thinking perfecting, considering dialogue when usually my single panel cartoons I can bang out super quick. there is a lot I'm hoping to improve in the upcoming issues. I was pretty unhappy with my own lettering and in the future I feel like I'll need to have the writing fit less awkwardly in each panel (this is partly due to me having to shrink the pages down when printing which I forgot would also make the speech bubbles smaller). there is a lot of smudges and drips that are a by-product of not being used to drawing so small, and the panel borders are clearly a nightmare, but overall my excitement about finishing this story far overshadows any frustrations I've had in making these comics. I'm really interested in hearing any opinions or constructive criticism.
