Just wanted to say what a great book you've produced! I also enjoy seeing the process that you've shared with us. I look forward to dropping in to see more of your amazing work. Just curious, but what was your time schedule like?

john - the actual production of part one was about 4 months, all done in my spare time (not including research time).

I just finished reading part 2 of Rose and Isabel, and wanted to congratulate you on the best graphic novel I've read in years. I saw R&I reviewed in Boing Boing, ordered it, and haven't enjoyed or been moved so much by anything since Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. (Between then and now Gareth Hinds's Beowulf was the only thing that I really enjoyed.) The way you use facial expressions to portray strong emotions is more powerful than anything I've seen in this genre. (Needless to say, I'm a big fan of Cars and Ratatouille as well.) Civil War history and culture is big here in Lexington, Virginia -- I live next to the cemetery where Stonewall Jackson is buried, and work up the hill from the tomb of Robert E. Lee -- so I was afraid I'd be bored by the topic, but you've breathed new life into it. I look forward very much to whatever you do next.
