Color Proofs Galore
A heap of color proofs are littered on my side table right now from the upcoming Life with Mr. Dangerous (from Random House/Villard) and So-So Heroes (from Chronicle). Have a gander. One of the proofs from Life with Mr. Dangerous in this shot is 1 of around 30 pages of comics that never appeared in Mome or anywhere else. Needless to say, those will get extra attention in the proofing stage.
And peeking around the corners are a few of the studio's scattered toys, one from Meltdown (though that one was purchased in Chicago at Quimby's), one from Friends with You, and a little Snoopy head that if you rotate its ear shows you different single panel Peanuts cartoons through a window in the back of his skull. Why that last one was ever produced, I don't know, but it's one of my favorites.
