Here’s the plan. Once a month, on the same Wed. that the new issue of Unknown Soldier hits, we’ll post a segment of the book here, separating each stage of the creative process, from script to breakdowns to inks to lettering to coloring. It’s the closest you’re going to get to looking over Alberto’s shoulder while he works. We’ll also be using this space to elaborate further on elements endemic to the war in Northern Uganda that that month’s comic touches on. For Unknown Soldier #1 we’ll explore the history of, and life inside, the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) Camps.
We’ll keep these posts up throughout the first story arc. But when the trade hits, all this info evaporates. Just so you know! Thanks for reading. – Joshua Dysart
