Merry Christmas (Texas edition!)

I went back to Austin/San Antonio for the Christmas break and had a great time with the family. Getting out to Austin was a bit daunting because of the delays and buses and metro. So I got there and stayed in Austin for a couple of days, hung out with my brother and his wife and my nephews, Simon and Duke. I love these little fellas...they sent me their own Christmas card.
Then I went to San Antonio, ate a ton of great food with the most awesomest family, and went to some land on the Guadalupe River. Here are some of the pictures:

Unlimited-Ammo: Problem Solved!

Heres a new Unlimited-Ammo! This is the first time I used "comic style" formatting and I had no idea how intuitive it is. Just reading the first chapter of Scott McCloud's 'Making Comics' helped out so much. I'm only on chapter two right now.

Nick Gibbons lent me this idea so I really gotta give him the kudos for the idea. He even helped with the dialogue! Another person who was extremely helpful was Jake Parker. He pointed me in the direction of Making Comics and Panel Discussions and also critiqued my layouts. It would look completely different if he hadn't given me some wisdom.

Here are some of the initial layouts...

First crappy layout of the comic. Click for a bigger view.
Second less crappy layout after the notes Jake and Nick provided me with. Click for big.
Final not-so-crappy approved layout! Yay! Click to become big.
