The One That Got Away (Part 6)—The Weldon Owen years (Part 2)

Here's another strip that I wrote for Weldon Owen. It was drawn by 2000 AD artist Adrian Bamforth, who I'd never worked with before, but he did a great job. The challenge here was to do a story about the infamous "Perfect Storm" that hit the North East coast of America in 1991. Lots of people were sadly killed in the storm and the incidents were recorded in the semi-factual film, The Perfect Storm starring George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg. But whereas they had 130 minutes to tell the story, we had just two pages! I think we did a reasonable job considering the space and deadline. Click on the pages to enlarge them. Hope you enjoy it.
