On the Zygote completion chart, what do the sections correspond to? 68 pages (if I counted right) seems too few, and 68 chapters too much (maybe)... Spreads? Some other measure?
No, that really is the length of the book right now. I’m basically locking down the final draft now and editing as I go. Episode 1 is locked down, and now I’m going to do extensive rewrites on Episode 2, draw it, lock that down, and then we tackle episode 3. We’re aiming for an ultimate length of about 100 pages.
Regarding your note about brevity, I think it’s the perfect length for the story I want to tell. Ghost World, incidentally, is 71 pages (80 with indicia).
