  • A Writerís Commentary: Frank Barbiere talks Precinct #5, on sale now

    A Writerís Commentary: Frank Barbiere talks Precinct #5, on sale now from Dynamite, as the miniseries wraps.

    PAGE ONE

    Crizam and Dinei did an excellent job with this page. Itís a big, fun opening and really sets the stakes for the series finale.

    PAGES TWO - FIVE

    I really enjoyed working in Mortís personal history and outlook on life to show why he acts the way he does. I also love the way Crizam drew Mort channeling the energy back into Jo, and the way they seem to be hugging/showing the compassion.

    PAGE SEVEN

    The reveal of the Archduke is wonderfully rendered here. Crizam really gave him an intimidating, great designóworking him in with the design of the suit really visually ties the plot of the book together.

    PAGES EIGHT - NINE

    Really happy with the fight scenes in this issue. I gave Crizam some room to really have some fun, and he delivered some awesome action.

    PAGE TEN

    It was fun to sell the literal interpretation that Mort will ďrest when heís dead.Ē A powerful sequence rendered expertly by the art team.

    PAGE FOURTEEN

    Iím a fan of splash pages and really putting some power behind them, and here we have no exception. Itís a great turn in the fight scene and itís a lot of fun to see Mort taking control of the battle, as well as the minotaur machine thatís been an ďunknownĒ throughout our series.

    PAGES FIFTEEN AND SIXTEEN

    Iím really pleased that we found an organic way to wok in the theme of alchemy vs. steam, and that itís part of Joís elegant solution to the problem of the attacking machines.

    PAGE EIGHTEEN

    Weíve been telling a story about Mort and Jo learning to work together, despite their differences, and itís really rewarding to show that through them fighting together.

    PAGES TWENTY AND TWENTY-ONE

    Itís a lot of fun to end big, genre stories like this with an awards ceremony, and itís an obvious homage to STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE. Through writing this book I really got a handle on Mortís voice, and itís fun to have him narrate the epilogue.

    PAGE TWENTY-TWO

    I am a huge fan of bookending my arcs/series, and I really enjoy how weíre able to modify Mortís intro narration with what heís learned through our series. Thanks for reading, everyone!
