The big finish to the song! This is the second-last page of this wacky musical number. With this page I tried to emulate music-video-style “cutting” with my panels – jumping to a different location in each panel tier, while trying to come up with situations for Steamroller Man to cause as much unwitting havoc in the lives of his fellow citizens as possible. I even threw in a reference to Singing in the Rain.
I kind of hit a wall with my motivation while drawing this page. The idea to have Steamroller Man sing a song seemed crazy and funny when I first came up with it, but at this point I’d been drawing this song for six weeks(!) and my enthusiasm was definitely flagging. I have no one to blame but myself, and it was a good lesson to learn about making comics – they take a tremendous amount of work to produce, so if you’re both the writer and artist, it pays to sincerely ask yourself, specifically “what do I want to draw?”

Good to see that Panicked Man from the cover of Action Comics #1 is still able to find work now and again. (Panel 1)

Well, I thought, if I'm doing a musical, I should reference one of the all-time classics!
