Webcomicography is a weekly article from Champion City Comics that goes behind the scenes of our webcomics to give you the complete story. This week we are starting part two of our series for The End of Paradise, a crime noir tale of revenge. Did you miss part one of the story? Click here to read.
I sent Kav the first ten pages of script for The End of Paradise during the end of March of 2010 and awaited the completed pages. Below is the original page one from April of 2010.

While writing page two, I had to come up with two acquaintances that Marshall could mention while talking to Nick. I came up with Pee Wee and Stonewall. Pee Wee was inspired by The Wire, while Stonewall was the name of some hillbilly kid that lived down the street from me as a kid.
Now let us look at page three.

I've established Nick has having been AWOL for some time and that he is in need of a bunch of weapons. Marshall knows something is up and wants to know more. Nick decides to throw Marshall a tall tale of a gopher causing trouble in his aunt's garden. I can't recall how I developed that little lie from Nick, but it politely tells Marshall, "None of your business".
Now let's look at page four:

Here we have a continuation of Marshall trying to get some information from Nick. This is the first time we hear the name Frankie Paradise and the tension between the two characters builds and builds.
