A couple notes about what you are looking at here. Heather actually started coloring the series herself. She was doing a decent job with it, but was working too slow. Valve also wanted me to crank it up a notch, so i ended up changing a lot of it. One thing that i never touched was the painting she did in the first scene. She really made that thing sing.

Heather was also adding text over her drawings at first. Mostly on a separate layer, but she had a slip on one of the pages. In the panel with the cougar, i had to turn a ballon into a (really wonkey) table. In the last of the second scene you can see a balloon i couldn't cover. We covered it up... with... well... text. But here you can see the font she initially chose.

The page breaks are different than the original because in the beginning we were tossing around the idea of doing extremely LONG pages and breaking them up by scene rather than like a comic book. So these are the cuts i made just on the fly right now. No rhyme or reason to them.

This comic does not exist, since the engineer update is actually a figment of our collective imaginations.

Haha, after reading it I asked myself if you were involved. I have to say, I was surprised with the artistic quality of the comic in every aspect be it the poses or the colors (I like their intensity). The story had everything too! The life-extending machine is very interesting, the australium part was really funny and the ending panels were badass.

I approve, I'm already hipped.
