Alan Moore was not familiar with digital comics until embarking on this project. He sat and listened intently to the crash course delivered by Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, in the library of Delapre Abbey almost two years ago, and then he went away and wrote the script. He has experimented with many techniques and methods all in just eight pages of comic.
The resulting story is hypnotic and compelling, leaving the reader wanting more.
Colleen Doran read the script for Big Nemo and then actually cried. I suspect that is not uncommon among Moore’s collaborators, but Nemo represented a huge challenge.
Every page was described in minute detail, and not just the art, but the directions for sound, animation and interaction. After the initial shock and horror, she got on with it like a champ, and produced something incredible, inking the lines with a crow quill nib for added authenticity, she made the story her own and it shows. She also created our wonderful Electricomics Muse, providing an inspiration to all who see her.
Not sure what the snake is about, but I am running with it.
