Wow. What an eventful chapter. We were really unsure how it would turn out, but I think Jim did it very well.
I hope you like the cover. It’s my favorite so far. I hope you’ve noticed, but I always try to put a lot of symbolism in each cover. I think this one probably has the most so far. Not only does it hint at the contents of this chapter, but it also has a lot to do with stuff you won’t understand until later. It’s got some interesting foreshadowing.

* Evilly *: What a quaint Chapter. Dean was really creative with that cover; it’s probably the best one yet. Psycho Games is all about two things: Talking heads scenes and fight scenes. I can’t say this is the best talking heads scene (there’s quite a bit of competition for that title) but it does develop Victor (who has been lacking in development lately) and hints towards the future. I think I can say with confidence that this Chapter’s fight scene is most likely the best one so far. (Dean said it was the one that actually felt like a real one.) Fight scenes are hard to write, but this one has more emotional depth and conflict that others were lacking. I also feel it’s paced better, and feels really fast and powerful, largely due to the dynamic art. And of course, we finally get to see the mayor again. That’s pretty cool, I think.

Hey! Good to see you! Here, we’ve got the next chapter of Psycho Games. Hope you find it exciting.

For this chapter, I decided to create an alternate cover, just for fun. I colored it with crayons, as you can probably tell. Whaddya think?

This fight is being set up more like it’s part of a horror story. So far, each of the fights has been structured very differently. I like to think Psycho Games offers a bit more variety in the fights than some action comics.
Dean’s pretty good at drawing the metal spiders when he doesn’t make them just scribbles.
I’m starting to draw a bit myself lately, so maybe I’ll draw my own comic once Psycho Games is over. . . but that’s pretty far in the future. It looks like this will end up longer than 300 pages, at the least. It’s almost to the 100 page mark, and we’re less than a third of the way through. Maybe even less than a quarter. I don’t plan for it to be a 70-volume epic, but this may be longer than Pumpkin Man, at least. I’d rather not work on it for more than 2 or 3 years, though. I have a lot of ideas I’d like to use for other comics. Life is short.
