Like so many so it seems, I am a huge fan of the work of :iconshiniez:.

While the comic makes tremendous use of the elongated strip format, I am an old school comic book fan. Almost since the first time I saw this work, I have been thinking about how it could be translated onto the printed page. Each strip seems to be a different size, but rarely in dimensions easily fit to a standard comic book page. Some large panels seem just right for a full page splash, but some of the best material is so large as to dwarf even what a full page could contain. Even the man himself commented on how much of a pain it would be to ready the thing for publication.

Even with these challenges (or maybe even because of them), the problem of how this could someday make it into print stayed in my head. So I decided to do something about it...

Since this is a PDF, you'll need to hit download on the right side. I recommend that you view this as a dual page layout with odd pages left. It won't look as sweet on your iPad as the PDF version of chapter 1 that shiniez uploaded last week, but I'm hoping it would look great in book form.

You know You have been reported for theft..? Putting something not yours into a pdf is a violation of the rules let alone that their comic for sunstone is about to be released. Douche.

Have you done any of the other chapters? It is so much nicer reading them this way.
Thanks!

I'm a little torn...this has some very phenomenal, moving moments in it. But the comparisons to nilla life feel didactic and preachy, and some of the dialogue walks that line too (i.e."Lisa is feeling embarassed, naked..."). Watch it, and you'll really have something <3

Somehow would have to fit in the "solo page/pages" somewhere. The obviously linked "Pumpkin Ally and Witchy Lisa" and the "Lisa on the Beach with Her Fascinating Tanlines" pics leap to mind.

Okay so im dumb xD i had skimmed past this in my inbox at least twice and didnt realize this was anything beyond a fan cover. Then i saw Shiniez's official endorsement and then i actually gave this a look over. This is extremely impressive and is much more realistic to the common printed format of comic book's, It makes me sad because i see this and it just add's to the annoyance that i cant buy a copy of this irl. Great work here!

I was wondering: is there a way to turn this into a cbr file? PDF may be nice, but if I want to read it full screen, the images are small to the point where I have to squint and come close to the monitor just to read the words.

PS Are you doing chapter 2 next?

Try right-clicking and using "save as", then open it with a dedicated viewer (adobe or something like that).

Just a sidenote, should the last name be different? Because at the time Lisa was writing the book she was already married to Ally. Unless they kept their individual last names. o3O

In any case, excellent work. ^^

Interesting point.

When I first made that page, I didn't know what Lisa's last name was, so I made one up: Miller. Thinking about it though, the choice was completely arbitrary, so I decided that I would use Elizabeth Allison instead. I thought that it seemed like a reasonable pen name given the story, and echo's your point.

Of course, a few weeks ago we found out Lisa's full name from her brother. Given that to the best of my knowledge we still don't know Ally's last name, using Williams seemed the the only logical choice.

:iconaonon:
Aonon Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
Indeed, you are correct. From what can be gleaned from the story thus far, Williams would be the only logical choice, and would still remain a valid one even if we found out Ally's last name. Many couples keep their own last names when they marry. Hell, Ally could end up taking Lisa's last name. XD

You are the layout Legend! I'd thought for ages the only way that Sunstone would work in print would be 2 or 3 strips per page or some kind of continuous fold-out concertina effect. & lo, Simplicity saves the day again :D

11/10 !!!

Great work. I have been a fan of Shiniez since before Sunstone came out. My Mistress and I love how his realistic approach to the subject of BDSM.

I really like this edit, and if I had money to spare would buy it if printed.
