comic: The Long Way Home, by Rheanna and Astrid

Two weeks ago during my week off, I was sitting in my freshly painted room, feeling vaguely restless, and realized that I really missed having a comic to work on. So I emailed rheanna27 and asked if she would be interested in collaborating on one. Luckily for me, she was, and a couple of days later she mailed me a kick-ass script. :o) Seriously, I'm so excited about illustrating it that I have to practically tear myself away from it. Page one is finished and posted below... the other eight pages are already sketched and I really hope it won't take me that long to update. [eta: now COMPLETE]

Okay, SO looking forward to reading more of this!

So nice to find comic books on the Net!

Eeeeeee! New comic! So excited!!

And also - OOPS. Well. That can't be good? Um. Oh, team. What have you gotten yourselves into this time? ♥

The scrip cracked me up (Satedan proverbs! Pegasus superstition!), and the art is gorgeous. The sense of space is absolutely breathtaking. Especially in the last panel, with the sky and plain and the beautiful mountains...! As usual, your characters look fantastic - just like themselves, and so wonderfully animate. I'm also very fond of the inclusion of sound effects for the gate opening, and going through it.

Yay! Can't wait to read the next page, now!

The scrip cracked me up (Satedan proverbs! Pegasus superstition!),

It cracked me up as I was reading it, too... the dry way Ronon delivers that line.

Especially in the last panel, with the sky and plain and the beautiful mountains...!

All Rheanna - I just translated it onto paper.

I'm also very fond of the inclusion of sound effects for the gate opening, and going through it.

Heh. I noticed the cute little 'plop' it makes whenever something enters a gate, and couldn't resist. Normally I'm wary of too many sound effects but I like these, too.

Astrid, it looks really good. I will look forward to seeing the rest of it.

Very glad you like it. It's a great story to illustrate.

Plus, it thrills me that I finished the whole page, from pencil to posting, in about a day. That's a very decent rate for me. Okay, it's freakishly fast for me. ;) It gives me reason to hope it won't be that long between updates, like with the previous ones. *fingers crossed*

OH SNAP. That's not good!

Love the color, the landscapes, and the proverbs made me snicker. Can't wait for more!

OH SNAP. That's not good!

As Rodney would say, "We're so screwed!"

I'm pleased you like it!

Oh yeah! You do the best comics!! I love the art, the coloring... the adventure... it's all so cool!! \o/ looking forward to your TBC!

looking forward to your TBC!

Heh. Me too. :)

Squeee! An awesome and intriguing opening! (I noticed though that you didn't draw Ronon's tattoo on the left arm, if it is set in season five, it ought to be visible. Sorry for the nitpicking, the art in general is gorgeous.)

I knooow. Second time I'm forgetting that tatoo. I'd been meaning to add it but only noticed once I posted. I'm gonna fix that later; I usually go back a few times to fix details in my comic pages because there's always something I forgot. I also want to make one or two of the balloons a little bit larger, since they take up much less space than I thought they would.

OH YAY SO MUCH YAY I AM SO EXCITED!

(I just love your work... and this looks terrific... and also? It took me about 20 years to figure out what 'a stitch in time saves nine' means....)

It took me about 20 years to figure out what 'a stitch in time saves nine' means....)

When I first heard that saying, my reaction was "nine what?" too. ;)

Oh, yay! I'm very happy to see another great comic from you! :)

Yay, thanks. (And I've just uploaded the next page :)

Oh my god, what a set up! And your art work is, as always, brilliant. I'm beyond impressed. Thank you!

Thank you so much! Page two is up now...

Very cool artwork! I'm looking forward to the next pages !

Thank you kindly. New page is up now. :)

Cue dramatic musical sting.

Can't wait to see more!!!

Oooh, nice. Looking forward to seeing more of these...

Oh noes. Alternate reality.

Beautifully drawn as usual, Astrid. :)

Alternate reality.

::sly smile:: Maybe not...

That looks as if it is going to be a BIG problem. I'm looking forward to seeing some more pages :)

That looks as if it is going to be a BIG problem.

Oh, yes...

Eeeeee!!! *is very very intrigued!*

Ooh, this really looks promising. How will our heroes escape this time? *g*

Ooh, interesting! Can't wait to see more.

Eeeeee! I'm in love with this. We're so lucky to have you two pairing up!

Gorgeous, gorgeous art, rendering each of their unique personalities somehow through the drawings. The landscape is amazing, also! And the Gate and effects, wow, awesome.

And the script! Given who's involved :), I'm somehow not surprised that the story is already full of cool sci-fi goodness and mystery, as well as spot-on characterization. I can't wait to find out what happens!

We're so lucky to have you two pairing up!

I feel lucky, too. You should see the rest of the script, it's an artist's dream.

Both the artwork and the story are fantastic. Wow, the attention to detail and the likenesses are incredible, especially the insert of John. Love this, can't wait to read/see more.

Thank you.

Wow, the attention to detail and the likenesses are incredible, especially the insert of John.

The dozens of fanarts I've drawn with these guys are starting to pay off... in that I sometimes can just go to my character folder of finished inks and pick an expression that fits the scene. That saves a hell of a lot of time I can use on other characters or details. (In other words, that close-up of John is actually recycled from my other comic and luckily fit this scene just right. :o)

Yay! Love the comics and your artwork and the story!

MORE PLEASE!!!

This is great, I can hardly wait to see more.

Thanks. I hope I'll have more soon(ish).

Oh beautiful! Both the art and the story so far are awesome.
