Thugs! - Page 2

As you may or may not know, Thugs! started as a web-strip, but that kinda fell to the wayside because the site the strip was on needed an overhaul.

Myself and Al have decided to self-publish 'Thugs!'. We decided that we are going to print through Ka-Blam and that's when I came across an important format issue. The pages are too big for Ka-Blams technical specs. So, now I have to go through each page and resize/reposition and in some cases completely redo the layout. Also, I'm going to tweak the lettering and the artwork...try and give it a more polished look.

So...what you see above is page 2 of Thugs! Book One...which was actually Page 1 of the webstrip. The Ubabee page was added as a nice intro to the series.

Confused? Don't worry...as the strip gets a fresh look for print...I'll be confused too!

Wow. sorry to hear about the changes, what a pain in the ass! Btw, do the Deb pages have the same size problem?

No. Because when I scan 'em...I take the Ka-Blam size into account.
