Do not go gentle into that good night




Dylan Thomas, 1914 - 1953







Do not go gentle into that good night,Old age should burn and rave at close of day;Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Though wise men at their end know dark is right,Because their words had forked no lightning theyDo not go gentle into that good night.Good men, the last wave by, crying how brightTheir frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,Do not go gentle into that good night.Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sightBlind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,Rage, rage against the dying of the light.And you, my father, there on the sad height,Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.Do not go gentle into that good night.Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Do not go gentle into that good night

Dylan Thomas1914 - 1953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Scans of a 5-page piece I did for Wizard magazine way back in 1997, in a halcyon year that saw my first two mainstream projects dropping: Titans: Scissors, Paper, Stone for DC, and Gen13 Bootleg for Wildstorm (years before their purchase by DC). Yeahp, for a little while there, my comics career was kinda cooking, wasn’t it? Oh, well.

Anyhoo, the inherent joke of this "Basic Training" pseudo-tutorial was that I addressed the unfortunate stereotype of manga-influenced artwork  being little more than “big eyes and speed lines” by, well, blithering about nothing but big eyes and speed lines! How very self-contradictingly metatextual, huh?

Note, by the way, that the pages were in uninked pencil because I was still working on Gen13 Bootleg at the time, and couldn’t spare the time to ink the damn things. This, alas, was long before I figured out the pencils-only technique I’d later use for Empowered (my ongoing “sexy superhero comedy” series published by Dark Horse Comics, he added parenthetically and shamelessly). Man, I don’t even wanna think about how much more work I could’ve cranked out back then if that approach had been known to me… Oh, well, again. 

In closing, I should note that the text has a few slightly puzzling edits, including page 2’s cryptic addition of the line "That’s the main reason manga are in black and white," which certainly wasn’t my actual opinion. (And, for the record, I tried to avoid using the term "manga-style" about my work, period.) Beyond that, the rest of the text (and artwork!) hasn’t aged all that gracefully, but a few of the bits about speed-line usage might still be vaguely useful. Gotta say, back then I was always annoyed by American artists’ lame attempts at speed-line usage, as very few ever bothered to closely study their usage in manga (patterns, group numbers, fixed vanishing points, thick-thin vs. single-line-weight, moiré effects, branching out of black areas, motion blurs, etc).
