I got a kick out of covering this extended internal monologue – which in most modern comics would be conveyed through captions – instead in the form of thought bubbles.  It helps to add to the old-school aesthetic of the scene.

Did everyone have a fun Free Comic Book Day this past weekend?  I sure did!  I had a signing at Forbidden Planet Glasgow, where the sizeable supply of copies of AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE #0 very quickly ran out.  And soon after that, the shop sold through its entire stock of AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE graphic novels.  After that, most of their remaining stock of single issues of THE STANDARD were also sold through.  I was then out for most of the day, but when I got home that night, I was overjoyed to discover that the #EmilyFound hashtag had exploded on Twitter, with scores of photos taken by people all over the world, posing for selfies with AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE #0, as well as sharing kind words about the book.

Free Comic Book Day is an incredible event, and I love how it brings people who might not regularly visit a comic shop into our world.  And I’m amazed to think that many new people may now be interested in checking out ComixTribe books as a result of AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE #0.  Hopefully they’ll also stumble upon this webcomic!
