Yowser! Brilliant work Faz, love the silhouettes. And the dome.
Huzzah!

Faz Choudhury said...

Thanks Paul! I didn't realise until now but the gutters are a bit large. May have to tweak those.

I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when an Infant cries!

Very lovely indeed.

An other fab looking page!

Colin Fawcett said...

Mmmm. Col like!

Faz Choudhury said...

Oops! I've forgotten to include the arrows in Kazam's helmet, I'll add them and sort out the large gutters too. I'm not at home today so I'll have to do it tomorrow!

Bravo mate, BRAVO!! It's such a blast to see you do this kind of material, seemingly effortlessly too! Love panel three ! LOL!! Superman should land like that all the time!

"What are you doing here?"
You had to do it didn't you?! :)

This page is ace Faz. Love the way Rob and yourself have thrown the Baron into the mix with Zhadira.

"What are you doing here?"
That didn't even blip on my who-dar (Doc-dar?). The shame of having to have it pointed out to me!

Colin, Andrew Liddell, the man behind the amazing Who montage is a mate, but the origins of "What are you doing here?" being a comical phrase of note goes back even further than that, as Paul Peart-Smith well knows! I refer you to a very old blog post of mine: http://bit.ly/18aOgg

My book from way back when, "The Malice Family", is primarily all about this character. It's a bit of a one-sided character assassination, I was young and less concerned about being mean and it was done in the aftermath of it all and I needed to vent my spleen. I have many copies of it left (in French too!), if I can make it to Bristol I'll bring along some copies for Huzzah folk. You'll find they're quite good for steadying wobbly tables.

Are you saying "What are you doing here?" is a comical phrase that goes back as far as the bible?

Faz Choudhury said...

Well, of course!

And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
1 Kings 19:9

And Isaiah 22:16. Naturally.

Thinner gutters look great, btw.
