...if I haven't finished the page, then I'm gonna have to bow out. If i can finish the page, I hope that's still enough time for Allen and Joe to do their things.
Don't worry about me, I only need a day or so with the files. I'm still working on my solo entry too. I wrote my script a few weeks ago. Planned to be done by now, but then my wife was in the hospital. Major surgery. But things are settling down a bit finally and I have a design project I need to work on today, so I won't be starting my page until tomorrow at the earliest. Should be done in plenty of time to do the lettering for the group page.
I don't get it, if you don't "bow out" you're worried there might not be time for the inking and the lettering. But, if you do "bow out" how would there be time to get a new penciller, have him "do his thing" then have time left for the inking and lettering?
I don't see that "bowing out" solves anything, it just makes matters worse, this late in the game. Yeah, I don't see any other option here. No sir. You're gonna have to just suck it up, be a man, and do it.
It's only one page. You can do it.
