The first part of any Cosmos story is drawing doodle-versions of the individual strips that comprise it - or rather, drawing random strips and fitting them together bit-by-bit into a story later on. Above are the sketch versions of the first chapter (in-potentia) of 'The Great Comic Con Caper': for the most part, the final versions adhere pretty closely to what is presented here, but by the looks of the first two sketches ('Worth a shot' and 'Gene's big plan') I originally had both of these strips set in Tony's Comic Utopia - Ax and Jenny are there with Gene, Artie and Tony - whereas in the final story, Gene only comes up with his bold 'get in line at 4am' plan, let alone discusses it with Jenny and Ax, after he has left TCU. Also of note is that 'Rules of the Game' was a basic four-panel strip in the sketch phase, but expanded out to a full-page, multi-panel strip in the final story.... Needed a bit of extra room, you see.
