Rose and Isabel 2 - Workspace
Here is the current base of operations for R&I 2, the dining room table. It's fairly neat as it's still early in the process. I'm about 30 pages into the new book with a planned total of 128 pages. I've been reading a lot and below are two books I found that focus very specifically on a part of the war that the gals become involved with: Grant's Overland campaign, including the battles at the North Anna River and the battle of Cold Harbor. What's amazing to me is that To the North Anna River focuses on just 13 days of the war, and is also a time that is not given much attention compared to other battles. There is more detail in this volume than I could ever hope to convey in a graphic novel. I just hope that I can get across some of what I picture in my mind when I read this. Next up will be Not War but Murder about the battle at Cold Harbor, which was extremely savage and brutal. Rose and Isabel will be involved here as well. Expect lots of action! (sorry about the crappy photos).
