#004 "The Pen is Mightier.."
Not too many notes about this one.
It was only after I put Panel 1 together that I realised it made the dialogue a little ambiguous. The guy on the right is meant to speak first.
For the signs being held up, I just used the 'Beware of Dog' signs from the scrapyard in Black Mesa East. A couple minutes with the clone brush took off the original lettering, then I just added the new lettering with photoshop. Photoshop is also responsible for the 'binocular effect' in panel 5.
I originally wanted both the combine metro-cops and one of the citizens to be holding binoculars...but there weren't any in G-Mod and I didn't have time to make any or track some down.
