Off topic: 

Do you have any suggestions for books that teach story boarding and page layouts for drawing comics/graphic novels?

For comics, it really depends on the style of stories. Manga have a different style of layout than the US super hero comics, which is different from smaller press comics (Bone), and from Europe. For referenecs, always good to start with Scott McCloud's Understanding comics and Making Comics. A look at Will Eisner's Graphic storytelling is also a good source. See if your public library has copies.

Oh man, so cool to see how that all went down and why it was like that in the film. Thank you for sharing!

This is such a beautiful series! I admit I read this before seeing the movie and it really told the story well and I was able to follow the action and what each person's drive was! Now that I've seen the movie, this is even more beautiful, with much more meaning!

You know it's a shame that this outstanding, magnificent comic is not official.;) (Wink) 
Because it is made in best traditions of the movie. Characters behavior and their look are perfectly right not to mention how cool dragons are in the comic.:) (Smile) 
It is sad that the first time I read this comic elsewhere with no link to the true maker of this masterpiece so I,m glad to finally thank you in person for your creation.I salute you!

Holy shit, I wish they would have kept this in the intro, it would have added so much more depth and epicness.

If they though it was because it would spoil some things too early, then they should have considered that they already screwed up giving way too much away in the trailers, specially who valka is, that would have been an awesome plot twist, and it was for people who did not see the trailers.

it reached 602 millions, not bad, but is nothing compared to what other films made which is very dissapointing.

Is so sad to see that crap movies like transformers 4 made over a billion dollars instead even though everyone recognizes that michael bay films are pure garabage.

I like it. It's a really nice prologue, but I can see why they didn't include it. It woulda taken time away from Hiccup and co.

Bravo! Bravo! You should be very proud of this comic! If I could review it, I'd give you full stars for everything! You've got it all down: brilliant layout and storytelling that is amazingly in character - and how the story arc ties in back with the film, that's even better! Down right one of the best fan comics I've seen around. :)

Perfect! I see how you linked it to the film, too! ;)

Your style is stupendous, your perspective is stunning, and I believe you created a wonderful adaptation of what Dean De/blois was thinking when he originally though of this scene! I'm almost disappointed it didn't make it into the movie. XD

Wow... This one actually fit in nicely at the movie. The part we saw the ice blocks covered fortress. The movie span 2 and a half hours for me. I do hope it can go longer. Basically saying... I need more!! 

Awesome comic as always btw. Your story idea is truly engaging.

Many thanks. As for the story, I must really give credit to Dean Deblois, the writer/director of the movie who had the idea for it, as minimally described in the art of book. I just had fun and worked from it.

Ooh. Well, in that case I would also like to note that I really enjoyed the way you drew comics. Or the art style that was utilized in it. It has that soft but complex feels into it. Anyway, I really love the movies. I do hope to see more of Hiccup and Astrid goofing at each other more. It was lovely.

Having seen HTTYD2 recently, I feel like this, or at least something similar, should've been in as well. It helps give so much of the rest of the movie context for later. Great work!

You know I started following you when ATLA was still going on and I almost completely forgot that you are working for Dreamworks now! I even remember when you were first hinting at ROTG! Man, it's awesome that you basically work on most of my favorite animation projects! HTTYD2 was amazing! (Emotional...I cried too.)
