I found I had to refer back to early pages of the comic for reference more than ever before because of all the different threads that came together during this chapter. Though tufa have shown up since the beginning of chapter 1 (seen in the Hellrider stories, “Save the Bones” and “The Patient Feast”––with the latter exclusively available in the Volume 4 book and ebook), I haven’t really had to draw and color one since 2014. Coming back to where we first found Long John in chapter one was a scene I looked forward to.

It was fun to go back and reference art from the beginning of the comic. Page 2 vs. Page 149 (click for larger image)
