HIT 4's complete. Art by Jeff Coleman. It's about journalism.

I'm very pleased with it. It's ridiculousy dense, nasty and moderately funny - yet, simultaneously, I don't think it does what most of the other HITs have done and over-crams things. There's a lot of story in the five pages, but seems to work. And Jeff's art is extremely strong on the storytelling aspects for this, with the more cartoony-than-usual art increasing both the emotional and satirical edges of the strip. With another artist, it would have been painfully bitter. With Jeff, it bounces cheerfully from lies to murder to a conclusion of sorts.

I love journalism.

On a similar note, did a draft and a polish on my Panelbleed thing. Hopefully will have the first issue out next week.
