Samurai Mushroom Comics Chapter 2

Slowly getting these scanned and doing a little touch up.  You'll notice a fairly consistant layout, with the title, chapter and title, and a recap.  This came about from a college experience of trying to do a weekly strip in the colleg paper with a running story and people who came in at strip 4 or 5 saying they didn't know what was going on.  So I had planned to maybe have this run in a local rag or something never happened but I am putting these out there for the world now.

My technic for layout is fairly simple, I started experiementing in later chapters but decided right away to use computer lettering.  Being fairly poor with out a good computer and not being able to afford Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop I went fairly old school and would print the text, draw word bubbles and glue them to the paper.  You may notice, at least close up, areas around the word bubbles that are yellowed from the rubber cement.

Chapter 2: Into the Lions Den
Most of the character came from doodles and were sketched out later.  I also started writing in blocks of pages so there was a little more consistance in the story arcs.  Hope you enjoy.
