Going back to the origins of Brutal Bombshells, today’s radvent post is Hacked Off Hayley.
I love Hayley, not just because she is used for the cover image of the Brutal Bombshells comic, but also because she stylistically sums up the comic. Brutal Bombshells is a femme fatale anthology in the spirit of EC Comics. For me, his image best encapulates the stories within and the tone in which they are told.
Hayley’s story in the comics was actually one of the hardest to produce. The original concept seemed good when wirter Craig Jex and I came up with it, but when we started scripting and thumbnailing, it just didn’t gel at all. With our release deadline rapidly approaching, we ditched the first drafts and re-imagined the entire story. The resulting tale was simpler, but worked so much better for it.
