THE VALIANT #3 PAGE 6. 2014. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

This is what I would probably label as a "boring" page. Not a whole lot is happening, but it's necessary to set up the environment and develop the characters' relationship. It still requires a good bit of research, much of which can be used on subsequent pages. I chose an actual mall in Colorado as the basis for "Lyram Mall," but took many liberties. I usually do character studies to keep their looks consistent, and in this case, had to keep track of Bloodshot's wounds, which slowly healed over the course of the scene.

  1. I love see more from the valiant! It's one of my favorite comics. I've read it so many times the pages are falling out.
