Originally, I wrote all this dialog but didn’t think much about the accompanying artwork at the time. I just figured it’d be a bunch of typical talking heads (or in this case, one talking head). But it ended up being quite a lot of dialog and I really needed a bit more variety in the artwork to keep it from feeling monotonous. I originally had not planned on the two cut-away flashback panels showing the village in its “before” and “after” stages. I also had not planned on the cut-away panel of the yak pen on the previous page. But I needed to break away from Goshen and the hut here and there to keep things visually interesting, and those places seemed to work pretty well.
And for those paying attention, Goshen’s line finally explains that dead frozen goat alien at the very beginning of the story (The Big Snow Job #1, Pages 2-3).
