That's Doc....all heart. :)
There's a real challenge with drawing scenes with very little action in them....and this is one of those scenes. I had information I needed to get across to Clay, more interaction between Doc and Clay I wanted to show, AND I needed to do an image that showed them traveling.
I think this one came out ok. It shows additional information visually...there's the map of Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky, with the convoy of vehicles spanning the three states, and there's also a nifty travel brochure for Route 60...which is the road they'd be traveling. Interstate highways weren't constructed in the U.S. until 1956, so Route 60 (and the more famous, Route 66) was the only way to go.
You know, looking at this panel, it strikes me that this story has a kind of Scooby-Doo or Johnny Quest cartoon look to it....and that pleases me greatly.
Well, I think we've had plenty of talking for a while...how about some action, hmm?
