  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

He did do the cover Archie #10 of them dancing at the beach.


Okay, I just checked that out. I don't know... he made Veronica look pretty weird, all tall and skinny with these huge feet. It's almost like he stuck Veronica's head on Big Ethel's body.

I think he did this. I have this one.

December is a good month for the digests. My three favorite digests all come out in December a week apart.

I love Archie beach scenes but this one was so bad I couldn't buy it.

Speaking of bad art, does anyone know what constitutes breakdowns versus finishes as listed in the most recent Archie issue. The inking was so bad on it. Comparing this to Fiona Staples... Wow

Hopefully chock full of Christmas stories. I bought some Christmas themed Giant issues over the summer and I'm saving them to read around Christmas.

I like that other one. It's like Cheryl's possessed by the devil.

Breakdowns are also known as layouts. This is just a rough blocking out of the figures and panels, so you can see how the story will be told, and where all the characters will be placed in each panel, sometimes with the balloon placement to indicate where artwork shouldn't go because it will be covered with dialogue. The pencilling on the figures still needs to be finished, and then inked, background details drawn in, and so forth. In the example below, the left page shows Jack Kirby's layouts or breakdowns for a Captain America story (the lettering was then added on top by Sam Rosen). You can see Kirby's written notes to the penciller in the margins. The finished page on the right was then completed by another artist, George Tuska.



In this second example from the same story, you can see an interesting anomaly. Sometimes the penciller didn't always follow the layouts slavishly, but chose to show the same scene from a different position, even though the basic information conveyed is identical -- Panel 1 on the top of left hand page in the layouts shows a different camera angle and composition to the shot than Panel 1 on the top of the right hand page.




Here's a different kind of example. Sometimes the same artist who will produce the finished art will do his own breakdowns/layouts, as a stage of working out how to tell the story before committing to working on the details of the page. In this case, they're called "prelims" or preliminary art. Here artist Wallace Wood is working out how to tell the story on this page, but you'll notice that when he gets to the final page, he's made a number of changes from the way he originally laid out or broke down the story.
