Page 100 Project - Glen David Gold - Carter Beats the Devil


Check out Jason Turner's interesting Page 100 Project over at his site: http://jasonturner.livejournal.com/224544.html
As soon as I saw the idea I wanted to get involved, and Jason gives an open invitation to artists. So, I went to the bookshelf and discovered to my dismay that some of my favorite novels do not have very compelling 100th pages. I flipped through a few of the top novels in my library and didn't find anything that I thought would effectively transfer to comic book format. A favorite John Grisham book had no dialogue on page 100! Not a word. I could've done a page of captions, but kept flipping to other books. Gold's Carter Beats the Devil was a great fictional novel, with some true history woven in to the story. Page 100 of this book seemed like it would work and the image at left is the result. Wish I had more time to give to the artwork, and I would have hand lettered the dialogue. Jason, this project was a great idea. Thanks!
