Anyway, as awesome as that would be by itself, I've recently become aware of a change, and one for the better, that's come about in my writing for the strip now that she's on board: I've become more ambitious.
There have been times in NeverNever's past where what I ended up writing was not really what I thought would have made the best story, because I didn't trust my art to stand up to it. The early NeverNever strips were very visual, because they were written before I knew how good an artist I was (or wasn't). By the time of NN's first relaunch, it had become very sparse (e.g., this strip), because I was a) rushed, and b) had no confidence in the artwork. Or more accurately, I was quite confident that it wouldn't be what I wanted.
But that is so not the case with Sue on the job. Take a look at this strip, for instance: in the storyboard version I sketched for Sue, the school was basically a big, oblong box with windows. Sue's version actually looks like a school -- but an appealing, cartoony school of exactly the style I picture NN having when I write it, but am totally unable to draw myself.
What this means, among other things, is that I can just go ahead and write the strip I want to write, confident that something awesome will come back from Sue. The current storyline has blossomed from a little idea to what I think is a pretty neat action sequence (including cliffhanger) because I could spend my time thinking about what would make an engaging tale rather that fretting about how hard it would be for me to draw the warcats attacking Grognard -- or some of the even more complex stuff yet to be seen.
I'm very pleased with how NN is going. Thanks, Sue, for being so awesome!
