Are you able to recognise poorly-written sentences?
Do you think proofreading is a little more than reaching for spell check?
Have you an eagle eye for story inconsistencies and other small mistakes?
Well do I have the job for you. Recently I went through the 200 or so pages that are being prepared for Volume 2's printing, making small notes and highlighting problems along the way. Not rudimentary stuff like spelling mistakes, just "this is unclear!" or "this would be more powerful if you took off the second sentence". The intent is to serve Veronica with an annotated copy which she can refer to as she reads through the comic herself, making corrections wherever necessary.
If you think you have something to bring to the table, I'd love to get your help.
It took me a few solid hours, but I think I caught the most of what's wrong with these 18 or so chapters, so it might not be so hard for you. I have a PDF I'd be happy to send people who are willing to go through it. (Got an iPad? It's a great tool for this.)
As with the previous book's process, all I want is for a potential proofreader to just go through the comic (assuming all the corrections I've applied have been applied) and make a plain text list of suggestions, like:
Chapter 65, page 1, panel 2 - This sentence sounds awkward, I would suggest she just says "No! Get away!"
Chapter 66, page 2, final panel - David's face looks awful, could it be adjusted?
For those interested, let me know in this thread, and if I don't know you already, give me some indication you can do a useful job! There's no big deadline but to get a returned copy within a week would be ideal
ONE OTHER THING ABOUT THE BOOK DESIGN: I'm not sure whether it'll look cheap to use the same design for Volume Two as I used for Volume One. i.e. chapter title pages and table of contents and so on. Am I being weird to assume that the aesthetic of the second book should be different? This is not a question of what you'll tolerate, it's a question of what makes for a more perfect book.
