I’m probably breaking some rule of web-comicery here, but influenced by Josh Middleton’s ‘Sky Between Branches’ preview comic (one of my most prized possessions) I have always wanted to do a silent page.  In addition to the lack of text there is no punchline, no climax, very little information and whatever is there is probably misleading.

It’s probably a very bad first page, but I like it.  The first page is a unique opportunity to take advantage of the fact that the readers know nothing.  You don’t know who this person is, what their background is, what their goal is or even if any of it matters.  I’m hoping to draw you in via suspense and curiosity.  Let me know if it works!
