Burning Rubber - Car Chases in DBR

This article originally ran in DEAD BODY ROAD #4.

You don’t see a lot of car chases in comics.

There’s a perfectly good reason for this, which is also a pretty simple reason: they’re damn hard to do well in any format that doesn’t involve motion. There aren’t a heck of a lot of car chases in prose, either.

In movies (and television, and anime), the car chase is a fairly easy way to ramp up excitement. Because they are exciting; even the most poorly filmed and choreographed car chase is still tons of metal going way too damn fast, and often ending in a car flipping over and/or exploding. Possibly because of hitting a fruit stand, which are notorious for their destructive capabilities.

It’s visceral. It’s fast. It’s alive.

Comics, though, are a series of static images in a fairly limited space, so doing a car chase becomes much more difficult. So naturally, I wanted to do one. I hadn’t actually planned for it to be in the issue you just read, but two things happened.

The Colors of DEAD BODY ROAD

Moreno Dinisio, the colorist of the Skybound miniseries DEAD BODY ROAD, walked us through the stages of coloring two pages of DBR. These are the four steps he follows to bring Matteo Scalera's inks to life!

Step 1

I start with flat colors. On a grey uniform base, I spread the colors without too many shades, giving each thing its own colors without light or shadow. I give tone to the background and the characters, and take confidence with the page, looking for the three-dimensionality of the lineart without adding any other information.
