Loving the impact of the red on the latest page, also the contrast of the blasé, seen-it-all-before look on the photographer's face and Cynthia's look of shock.

Speaking of vintage stuff, I like the camera here.

I've been enjoying seeing the late 60s / early 70s fashions and hairstyles. It reminds me a lot of some of the movies I have been revisiting lately, like THE PRESIDENT'S ANALYST.

I hate to use the words "vintage" and "period-specific" describe what I've seen so far, because I actually lived through this time period...

I love how characters in Mr. Byrne's comics inhabit real places! I always get a sense that these are real people living in real houses, apartments, and offices. So many nice, small touches!

Again JB what a treat, it's like finding a gift every day. I dig it man.

Looks great without color tho seeing Alvin's clothing in color would be far out I bet.

JB, I notice you introduced the characters a bit differently this time.  Usually you have them in the middle of the action and introduce them as you go along.  This time you introduced them in the beginning.

Now I understand what you meant about some pages requiring a color element. That is one heck of a crime scene.

First of all , thanks for posting this original story. 
Secondly, I must say it is fun to see a new page every day ,it sends me back to when I would hunt out the Spider-Man strip daily.
Finally ,just seeing a page per day really lets me digest every panel getting me totally into the story even though we are just a few pages in.
Oh and it looks like Gower had to "settle" for a Mustang (I'm not a Ford guy). The Trans Am is about 3 years away still.

One of the things I'm really enjoying are the faces. They are all just so exceptionally expressive and emotive!

I'll join in by saying thank-you John for this early Christmas present!

The first thing that struck me about this was how fabulously individual (visually) each of the characters are! That is a really high level of skill being wielded there.
The second thing that struck me was the pacing of the story. It appears to be unraveling at a rate that feels unobtrusive! Not too fast or too slow. As such I'm being continually immersed in the story, not being knocked out of it!
Along with the pace it's the story too. Like layers of an onion, I feel that I'm discovering more and more intrigue with each passing stride of the narrative.

I'm loving every minute of this master-class.

Thanks John.

Every new page added, the more enthralled I become.

Thanks for sharing it JB. It is sad to read you say that you are passing through a phase of lack of interest in comics. I am going through the same, especially with new comics.

Agreed, Stinky!

Oh, and that most recent bit of dialogue sure took me by surprise!
