NOTES FROM THE ARTIST:

Not only did spaceship and sea ship change in looks, but the old pages were still reminiscent to elements that had long been tossed out of the comic. Remember, we've been working on this darn thing since the nineties. When rewriting I decided to shorten the flashback to two panels rather than have two pages, though funnily enough I'm actually saying more in the new one. It was always important to give at least a glimpse of Hammerhead's back story, for starters to explain why has technology in a world that doesn't seem to posses it otherwise. But this time I also wanted to explain beforehand what the deal is with these portals, before they start making their appearance in the present story, and to make clear that this is also an Elder task.

This page did give me a bit of a headache though. I had two ships to draw (and large artificial objects are still not my strong suit). For the sea travelling kind I was at least able to find suitable reference photos online, but that little spaceship? I had one 2006 drawing which had some good and some not so good elements and I had a really hard time trying to adapt the not so good elements. And when I did finally come up with something I could live with I stumbled unto the next problem; how to convert the previous bl/w portal to a full-colour one? I like what I ended up with, but weather this will work for non-space panels?
