And so the first meeting of The Humants team is done. A chapter ends and a new one begins… on the next post! Be here! …uh, that is, if you want to… and we sure hope you do!
Mark’s Remarks: Freazie covers a lot of ground on this page setting up the story for the action to come. More than that, even though it’s basically talking heads, Mr. White manages to keep it interesting with his layout and art. Freazie has been criticized before concerning his use of shadows. Maybe he does get carried away some with his light sources but I recall other artists who used abstract shadow casting for dramatic effect. One of my favorite cartoonists is Jack Kirby, as you might have guessed by now. Kirby could get more use out of dramatic, abstract shadows than just about anyone I’ve ever studied. Yeah, sure, Freazie’s art may not be prefect, but whose is? He can tell a story with his pictures and perfect or not there has always been something about Freazie’s art which is appealing. Exactly what that bit of charm is I don’t know, but I like it!
