The last few days I’ve been developing the storyboards for the 7th GESSO SQUAD graphic novel.  The chapters in this book are lengthy. My guess is the final comic will be about 100 pages.  The 1st graphic novel took 8 months to complete including revisions. All the others which came after were finished in 4-6 weeks. I spend 18-25 hours rendering each chapter from start to finish depending on the storyboard and screenplay.  I think it would be fun to have a Halloween release date for book # 7…so we’ll see…
