Some weeks ago I stumbled across the Podcast Comic Sans by Mikael Ross and Jakob Hoffmann. The two Hosts were discussing different approaches to first pages of comic books. It is a very interesting topic to think about and they dug up a couple of inspiring ones which are on display in this episode.

So here’s the first page of the upcoming comic The Many-Eyed Detective. It was not the first page i drew,
but it’s the first page of the final comic.

It was drawn on paper and it shows the layout i came up with while developing the digital frame for the story. In the digital display, the four separate lines are merged into one. That one line can be scrolled through by you, the reader.
