Malaak V is go! I'm so excited about it, I'm way ahead of myself with the pencils. I have a buffer of inked pages so that my upcoming London trip doesn't interrupt the updates, but I hope you appreciate the care taken in the coloring of these first two pages – taking it easy pays!
Taking a well-known neighborhood and "redecorating" is loads of fun ;)
I'm not entirely convinced about the special effects in the 2nd page (unfortunately the puff of smoke one would normally see in a situation like panel 3 doesn't translate well) so I'm keeping them this way provisionally – will revise if I can figure out a better way.
