Topic: Comic Books - New
We visited Paul Dale's table in Artists Alley during the recent 2009 San Diego Comic Con International a couple of different days...
And each time found him swamped with attendees who all wanted him to sketch for them!
I've mainly blogged about Paul's upcoming work 'The Children of Captain Nemo', but Paul is better known as an Anime caricaturist. Which is what it appeared all the attendees were at his table for during the SDCCI!
However, since I have mentioned earlier in my blog about Paul's work on his 'Children of Captain Nemo', and that it caught my eyes months ago, I thought I would stop in at his table and take a look at the 'hard copy' of it.
What I received from Paul was an actually a 'preview comic'. It is a 16 page, 6" x 9" comic, with selected pages from his creation. Being more 'old school', I enjoyed holding the preview comic in my hands even though it was the online pages that had first attracted my attention to this work in progress.
I found that Paul's story is one that really translates to the printed page, and look forward to his completing it and having it in printed format for all to see. He had a limited amount printed for the San Diego Comic Con International of the Preview Comic, thus I would have to suggest to you, my blog readers, to check out online the rest of the pages for this work.
Again, although I am not a big fan of manga or anime, I find it an art format that has merit, and encourage you to check this work out online.
You don't have to be a 'Facebook Friend' of Paul's to view his works. He does have a 'Fan Page' at: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=127718355649&ref=ts that you can view without being a Facebook member. To interact tho', (post comments, etc.), you do have to be a Facebook member. Take a look at this work, and others that reflect what Paul has done and is doing!
I for one am looking forward to seeing this in hard copy format. It would also make a neat animated feature!
