Here’s an example of a rough Seconds page vs a finished page. I drew the whole book in rough form, using a Cintiq tablet and Photoshop, and edited the story along the way. The final version was later inked by myself and Jason Fischer, colored by Nathan Fairbairn and lettered by Dustin Harbin. For those wondering, it was “penciled” digitally but later PRINTED OUT in blue ink and INKED TRADITIONALLY, with Jason and I both working on the same page.

This is page 195 in the final book, which was coded S5.8.2 in the rough files (Seconds: Chapter 5, Scene 8, Page 2). I used a simple code system until the story was locked, so I could add and remove scenes without screwing up all the numbering.

Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.
