Rosetta Stone: A Piece of Cake.

I've had Rosetta in my head ever since she leaped in there fully formed with her name when I was lying in bed one Christmas and I sketched her out. I've even scripted and started a full graphic novel version of her story, but become increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of the drawing.

I lifted a couple of frames (the first two scene-setting panels) from that for this, a sort of short introduction to the world of Rosetta Stone. 

Originally it was an entry for the Eagle Initiative competition but that was called off because not enough people entered. I took the opportunity to redraw some panels (terrible faces), re-do the lettering and speech bubbles, add an extra page (more fighting, essentially) and expand the big set-piece ending panels.

Anyway; Rosetta Stone.

(If you right click and open in a new tab it's a lot easier to read...)



  1. Thanks for this - I'm not usually a big fan of graphic novels (I'm too fond of words) but I enjoyed this one. I'm currently re-reading Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series, so this is very appropriate!

  2. Thanks very much. Glad you liked it and took time to comment, it's much appreciated!
