Behind the Scenes
« on: Today at 01:56:33 AM »
Art and script droids get all the glory, but I was interested when reading The Mighty One (MacManus, 2016) to hear about the amount of editorial rewriting (especially on GFD's Rogue - which is perhaps the origin of the term "scrotnig" as a typo of "escorting"), uncredited design work and also the fact that Tom Frame coloured a lot of the centre pages. I was also discombobulated by the idea of MacManus rewriting chunks of Skizz (or rather adding dialogue where there wasn't any).

This got me curious about about lettering (where the better you are the more you're not noticed) and sound effects. Sometimes, it seems fairly obvious that the artist is the one that did the sound effect, like in this example from Frank Quitely's Shimura:

But do letterers ever do the sound effects? I'd always assumed they mostly had responsibility for that.
