Finally... on to the finish of this slugfest!
A couple more big shots, and this baby moves into denouement mode.
This unfortunately requires me to indulge a bit more in my peculiar ocular injury obsession... for the last time.
I'll be trying out a few experimental panels (a la Yu Kinutani) on the following pages... here's hoping that they work out.
This is the lower section of panels that illustrate how "Our Hero" (sorta) breaks free of the armlock the Eisenvater sunk successfully in the previous sequence.
Now I get to indulge in one last bit of pugilism before the ugly finale... a simultaneous hook exchange. I'm looking forward to finding a solid visual solution for how to clearly show the two concurrent punches/counter-punches while still giving an impression of dramatic velocity. It should be quite a challenge...
Life is fairly pedestrian these days... not much new to report. My next Drawing Class started up nicely without a hitch and has the distinction of being perhaps the largest group of students I have ever taught! It's sure going to make that Bronx Zoo field trip I've planned a bit of a production!
