DOUBLE K REMASTERED - PAGE 001 by captainosaka DOUBLE K REMASTERED - PAGE 001 by captainosaka
(fullview plz!)


THIS, friends, is why I've been quiet for a while now. Many of you already know the story behind this, but for everyone else, here goes:

When I received a proof copy of DOUBLE K: VOLUME 1 in the mail a while back, i was horrified to see how poorly almost all of the early pages of the comic reproduced in print, especially compared to the crisp, beautiful later pages I'd done in Manga Studio. I refused to send out a subpar book, and, with the blessing of the wonderful backers over at Kickstarter, embarked on a painstaking restoration the entire first half of DOUBLE K.

What you're looking at now is a before-and-after of the first page of that process, and along with it, my declaration that IT IS DONE. 51 pages COMPLETELY redrawn, 37 more re-lettered, re-paneled, and thoroughly tweaked to make sure EVERYTHING is completely consistent. It was a ridiculous amount of work, but it has resulted in a truly spectacular book that looks absolutely wonderful and feels like a cohesive whole.

I appreciate your amazing patience during this long drought of content, and while I and my little team fulfill the hundreds of long-overdue orders, I have to ask for your patience for a little longer. HOWEVER, until that's done, I'm going to be phasing these new pages in to the archive once a day, along with these before-and-afters accompanied by "director's notes" about the changes I've made - after which I will reveal the pages that conclude this leg of the story, and we will move on to the abject insanity that will be DOUBLE K: VOLUME TWO.

Thank you all once again for your patience, and that goes DOUBLY for you, Kickstarter backers. You are all outrageously amazing for letting me go this crazy on this book. I'm very, very proud of it, and it's only because you guys gave me the means and permission to be so self-indulgent. THANK YOU SO MUCH, FRIENDS

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW WITH THE NEXT INSTALLMENT.

Great work, Nathan! I love how you improved things while still being remarkably true to the original, in great detail

Personally, I actually prefer the "Before" version. There, now I've said it! Flame me if you want, I'll fight back!
