I'm experimenting with not having panel borders for this story. 

I'll be painting it, so that will do a lot of the work in the composition.

STAR JAWS #37 - MOUNT A RESCUE pull out section

The new issue of Star Jaws is out now from Barnstormer Comics.

Inside is work from Robin Barnard, Martin Hand, and Paul B. Rainey.

In the middle is a "Star Jaws previews pull-out" dedicated to Mount a Rescue.

It's great to see this! It reminds me of comics pull out sections Marvel UK used to do. 

Many thanks to Robin for having this in Star Jaws. More info on Barnstormer Comics can be found here.
