Again, something that didn’t occur to me until very late: Morty wasn’t going to be crying in the final panel, just showing a big frown. When I saw how effective his silhouette was in setting up the reveal of his sad expression, I knew we needed to see something really surprising.
This page is named after A Nightmare on Elm Street.
A lot of things randomly came together to make this chapter better. It’s particularly evident here. When I tried to write Scurry out of the story during the treehouse scene, I realized that I had been going about it wrong. I wanted him gone because I couldn’t find a use for him, and only once I had managed to remove him did I realize that he could be extremely useful later on by bringing “the cavalry”.
This page gave me an opportunity to tell the story and set the mood through lighting effects, which was a challenging but fun experience.
This was the first page Josh colored. Difficulty-wise, it was the easiest and most straight-forward. There was no copy-and-pasting or elaborate background to worry about. He came up with the “explosive” spotlight effects behind Morty. They jazzed up the page nicely.
