Page 4, panel 1: Large panel, maybe half the page. Guri, flashback scene, stands amidst the sprawl of half a dozen men and aliens, a very dramatic angle, fists clenched, splashed with blood. The downed are all her handiwork.
CAPTION: IF YOU ARE UNLUCKY, THE PATH TO
REDEMPTION MIGHT BE EXCEEDINGLY
LONG, LITTERED WITH MEMORY. AND . . .
OBSTACLES . . .
(Note: panels #2, #3 & #4 should be about the same size and all still in flashback mode.)
Page 4, panel 2: This one shows XIZOR, before his death in Shadows. Cruel smile. Sketchy b.g., if any.
Page 4, panel 3: A four-shot: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and LANDO CALRISSIAN. Again, b.g. not important.
After some discussion, we decided to make this into one panel, called a "splash page," or sometimes just "splash." It incorporates the characters and settings more dramatically. I don't recall if it was the artist or my editor who suggested it, but I liked the idea.
To show you what it looks like, first the inked drawing -- I don't have the pencils -- then the colored version. Credits here: I wrote it, Ron Randall pencilled it; Tom Simmons was the inker. Steve Dutro was the letterer; Dave Nestelle did the colors. Scott Tice designed the book, and Duncan Fegredo was the cover artist for this issue. The editor was Bob Cooper, and Mike Richardson, the publisher. Special Thanks went to Lucy Autrey Wilson and Allan Kausch, at Lucas Licensing.
Comics are very much a team effort, though sometimes one person will do several things -- I know writers who draw their own, and sometime ink or color, too.
