Magellan pt. 1

Continuing the comics I made for McGraw-Hill, here is the stroy of Magellan's trip around the globe.

I can't make many claims to being an Iron Man, but this comic is one of them. The six pages of this comic were completed in one weekend... along with another ten page story! Sixteen pages in three days! That's Jack Kirby level production, brother! Granted, the ten page story was one of my stick figurey ones, and I'm not terribly proud of the art in this McGraw-Hill story, but forget quality! Glory in my quantity! Sixteen pages!

How fast was I moving on these pages? So fast I forgot to put a title on the above, uhm, title page. I don't know what McGraw-Hill ended up naming this story, and am pretty mystified that they didn't call me out on this.

Man, if I could draw that well that fast, why I'd be a thousandaire!

It's amazing the things one can do when the deadline pressure is tight enough. The rest of the time, my pace is more in the page-a-month range.
