My contribution to the Tankadere anthology volume 3 back in 2012.
We have an agreement that we’re allowed to post our comics after a certain amount of time.
So for volume three, the theme was “Strong Female Lead” and was named “Tankadere: Daring Dames” (the book is 152 pages this time). I named my story “That One Clue” and added dialogue this time.
My comic this time is 8 pages long (I probably went through 3 iterations until I settled on this one and even then I was making it up as I went) and the story is as follows: Detective Emily Stokes and her partner Mischa Solovyov are called in to solve a murder where the murderer thought they were clever but in doing what they did, made it their downfall. Now Emily just has to connect a particular clue go get her culprit. Luckily Mischa’s daughter’s there to give her an unlikely hint.
The story was originally a silent one again and it didn’t work out so well this time. Again, I drew this with wanting the reader imagine their own events through observation in mind and solve the puzzle on their own, rather than hand holding them through the story, but it ended up being too confusing, and through some editorial changes, text and dialogue was added. Even though I was upset at first, I’m glad I swallowed my pride and went through with it, it looks much better now.
Anyway guys, we have 3 volumes out for sale at the Crab Tank website, and I’m working on my entry in volume 4 at the moment. The theme is horror based, I’ll post a preview later. Please support us.
Thank you in advance!
