Count of Monte Cristo 5-Page Sample – Complete

Well, here it is: the five finished pages of The Count of Monte Cristo I’ve been tinkering with on and off for a bit.  If this ever became a real Count of Monte Cristo graphic novel project, I’d likely hand-letter it (or at least get a font made of my hand lettering) but for purposes of getting some sample pages out there, I’m fine with computer lettering.  I just wrapped up coloring these this afternoon, so I really haven’t had much of a chance to sit back and do much of an evaluation of the final product, but I think they’re reasonably solid.  I’m sure, though, once I’ve lived with them a bit, I’ll find some stuff that really bugs me and I’ll have to go in and tweak things a bit.  Anyway, here they are:
