Here’s page 300! A nice milestone, I think. I believe when I initially asked Scott McCloud if it was okay to do this comic (what a notion!), I promised him it would only be 150 pages. Easy in and out and then I’d move on to other things. Well, it has never been easy, and it certainly hasn’t been in and out. The story has ended up to be something I really couldn’t have anticipated, but what a gift that is: to be pleasantly surprised in the face of a great deal of unanticipated difficulty.
I would like to dedicate this 300th page to myself when I was 16. If I’d known then that I’d be doing a 300th page of a historical fiction comic featuring a gritty middle-aged lady having a face-off with a wolf, I would’ve been murderously thrilled.
