The Hollow Men: Pages 8 and 9 by nicholaskole The Hollow Men: Pages 8 and 9 by nicholaskole
I think it's been long enough now that this has been published, that it's about time I posted some more of The Hollow Men around here!
These are pages 2 and 3 of the story- I won't be posting the whole thing here, only a kind of extended 'preview'
for the full story, you can order Flight Volume 8 here:

I hope you've enjoyed this preview of The Hollow Men!
I really miss Flight, now that it's done. Gladly, the spirit of flight lives on in Explorer (I'm not in it, but I'm super excited to read it!) [link]

Your layout and colours are gorgeous! Beautiful tones and mood setting, and the lighting afdklads;kfjsdf

I absolutely your work in Flight, and I'm super excited to find you on deviantart! :D 

May I ask if the two creatures in this story are based on some mythology? They vaguely remind me of something, but I'm not quite sure what.

Is this completely digital or did you use some traditional media? Do you have Youtube drawing tutorials?

If you can still fix it on a future edition, it says "fored" where it should be "forced".

Amazing artwork here, i just love how ethereal your coloring is. Each panel composition blows me away :heart:

AH yes! I did catch that in time for publication and with the help of the Flight crew. Thankfully- this is a slightly older version than what went to print ;)

I just bought Flight to read the rest of this comic, and the whole anthology was wonderful! I particularly love The Hollow Men though, your use of colour and perspective and panel layouts is just so beautifully done. How did you learn to do that so well?

^_^ thanks for the support, that means a lot!
I learned pretty much everything you're noticing in Hollow Men from my time at art-school (RISD)...and if you dig around my deviantart gallery you'll see I made a good few crappy comics before I got to anything worth reading :)

My teacher once said you have a finite amount of crappy work in you and there's no way around it: you have to make all of it :D

I've read your comic, well, what you've so far posted, and I have to say I really enjoyed it.
(but... in this one, you wrote "FORED" instead of "forCed" to marry :) )

It is awesome, I want to keep reading. Great job!

Your compositions! And colors! And overall tones are just impeccable! I am so in love with this comic already (you had me at the first page).
I can only imagine how long it takes you to do each square but honestly this is turning out to be a masterpiece! Time well invested!!

The pretty patterns seen through the trees seem pretty and decorative at first glance, and then surprisingly grim and alarming when you realize how lost the creepy creatures know he is. Very cool!

Glad you liked it and want to read it! The money supports the publication and the authors (like me!) who make this stuff. Can't just do it all for free, you know! :) You won't regret your purchase- Flight 8 is full of beautiful work!

Absolutely your call whether you buy or not! I'll only say this, for Flight- there is so much more to storytelling and comics than slick art, and they have an amazing quality of storytelling if you're willing to open your mind to a broad variety of artistic styles! :)
