Maybe it's the fact that I am such a huge fan of the visual arts, but I hold the view that both are important -- are, in fact, integral to one another and inseparable. To me, it hardly seems to be an argument worth having.
Both camps, however, forget the importance of that often-forgotten comics art: lettering. I've definitely seen some comics with excellent writing, great art and cringe-worthy lettering, both online and in print. Cesar and I were determined not to make this mistake, so we put an ad up at Penciljack for a letterer to join us in the Zudacomics gamble. And just as I got lucky finding Cesar, we got extraordinarily lucky when Steven from Fonografiks agreed to round out our team. A professional with years of experience under his belt, Steven was the final piece of the puzzle for us, designing a lettering style that fit perfectly with Night at the Western's style.
Cesar sent the inked first page along to Steven for a test, and this was the result:
Clearly, we had a winning combination. And to see how it all came together in the end, stop by Zuda and take a look at the completed screen. While you are there, CAST YOUR VOTE for us so we can keep telling this story . . .
