It’s the time loop book! The one where characters break history so hard that the actual panels disintegrate around them! Which leaves me working on how to replicate the “transparent pixels” effect with…a printed paperback cover.
This started with a “mini mockups where I tinker with layout possibilities” post on Patreon.
And it’s ended up with these two basic variants:
I tried a couple different versions of the “cracks in reality” effect, ending up with this sharp zigzag effect for the edges. Couldn’t get the more detailed, rough-edged version I used in the strip to look good.
Maybe I’ll see if I can work out a “torn paper edges” effect before the actual printing? Maybe not. (Any updates about this, I’ll post directly on the Volume 6 crowdfunding campaign.)
As for the basic color scheme, though — that could go either way!
Which one do you like better, readers? Light mode, or dark mode?
