My favorite part about the production process is the final touches. It’s the last moment where the original idea is finally truly realized and tweaked until we feel it’s ready.
This is one of the most stunning pages in issue #2—and is another example of Ian Herring’s colors and Adrian Alphona’s line art working so beautifully together. This scene says a lot about where Kamala is and where she is going. And its also just sooo pretty.
As you can see there are two different styles here: one with a cooler, blue overtone, and one where the base colors are pulled forward with a slightly warmer palette. We were torn between which version to go with, but ultimately went with the second. While the first is dreamy and mysterious, the second signals that reality is about to set in. It’s pushing the story forward, and that is why we went with it. The story point always wins.

This is the first intro you’ll get of Kamala and friends… and appropriately enough it’s about food. My kind of comic.
