My apologies for the long delay, but Webcomicography is back. Let's take a look at page 36 below:

Nick and Marshall have met up with a former colleague, Walt Fenderson to get some information on the hiding places for Sato Akio or Frankie Paradise. Walt, like Nick and Marshall, worked for Paradise, so there is that common bond for these characters. I wanted to add an ally for this journey, but had no idea how Walt's character would blossom. He really developed into an old-school tough guy that was modeled after actor Sam Elliott.

Comic book writing rookies, take a look at this page and the following pages with Walt Fenderson. Walt is introduced, but the dialogue is natural and doesn't contain expositional dialogue. It is important for characters to engage in conversations that move the story forward and not give the reader an unnecessary history lesson. Expositional dialogue happens to the best of us, and all it takes is a little bit of script polish to clean up that mess.

On Thursday, we will review page 37 of The End of Paradise. Want to read the entire webcomic? Click here and enjoy the story.
