Oh, that Emiko! She’s good-bad, but she’s not evil.
With Monster Paradise, I occasionally find myself drawing pages that are either pantomime or near-pantomime. I rather like the challenge, since it has me focus on making the storytelling as clear as possible. I’ve had both fans and editors tell me that my comic pages can be read and understood without any balloons. And yes, I DO take that as a compliment. With so many comics containing walls of text and cartoons with unceasing dialogue, sometimes it’s relaxing to just look at the pictures!
