Great lines, man. The personality in all those characters is just flying off the page! Really nice simple backgrounds with such style and a real connection with the style of the whole piece. Love how you keep the camera on the move the whole time, makes it all flow like a saturday morning cartoon. I'd love to see this coloured up like "Wondercity", that'd be awesome.

Inspirational!

Great, great stuff all around. The storytelling feels very dynamic and fluid, and I like the environments you've created. Looking forward to seeing more.

Man this is going to be SO GOOD when it's done! Is this a full graphic novel based on Tom Sawyer?

Thanks for all the nice comments guys I'm glad you like them so far!

I was actually looking at the Wondercity pages when I did these.

This is going to be a 120 page graphic novel in color. It will come out at Barnes and Nobles sometime next year.

How do you get a book deal with B and N, do you pitch the idea to them or do they approach you? Do you work with an agent?

I just read my copy of this fresh from Amazon.

Rad, you really knocked this book out of the park. Your style is so much dang fun too look at, it draws you right into Tom's world. And it just really fits Twain's writing style... they're both very good natured. The colors were excellent as always. One thing that really stood out to me was the interesting camera angles you used... lots of worm's eye views.

The only quibble would be that sometimes the pacing feels a bit rushed. But I think that comes from summarizing a novel into 150ish pages.

Well done, Rad! You should be proud of this.
