A new page for Halloween! Once again, sorry about the long wait. The artwork was a bit intense on this one!

I should say so. That first panel is off the hook!

Thanks! I'm tired!

I agree...bravo on that first panel. Really captures the feel of things.

Thank you so much! I'm glad the scene is working. I spent a lot of time looking at 1900's chemistry labs and of course some classic images of Frankenstein's lab in black and white films. It's one of those scenes that has to be illustrated with some sensativity.

How many hours for the top panel? It is really well detailed and is executed perfectly!

Hmm, can't say for sure. I worked on it bit by bit when I had spare time so i took way longer than it should have! When I did the rough sketch my wife asked me if I was crazy. An average page (pencils, inks, color and lettering) takes about 8 hours. This was probably twice that total, likely more.

This comic has gotta be one of the best things I've read in quite some time. Love the B-movie feel. It reads like something that came straight out of Hellboy... I LOVE IT!

And the art, I have no words to describe it. It is amazing!

You got yourself a life long subscriber, my friend.

So....what happened !? I still have this on my subscribed list, hoping it would continue. Oh well...wherever you're at, I hope all's fine !

I've been very busy with freelance commissions and also starting a new day job. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to devote to IVG but I can assure you that more is in the works. Sorry about the long, long, long wait! Thanks for check in!

Glad to hear it! I was just about to say basically the same stuff that Bear did.

I'm loving both the artwork AND the story (which is saying something, since my tastes tend to run a bit more towards classic style superheroes than the kind of creepy-other-worldly type.)

Thanks, I'm so glad you're enjoying all aspects of the book. More is on the way!

Hello! It's been almost a year since the last update, I understand that working as a freelance artist is one of the hardest job in the world. But will you be back for another Halloween update? Frankenstein's must've been waiting for the storm of the century.

Obviously a new page was not posted for Halloween. I can't believe how busy things have become and frankly I'm a bit frustrated by it! VG has more pages in the making but unfortunately, I can't give an ETA. Thanks for checking in! I really appreciate it. So sorry to let you down!
