Whisper ran as a 10 page short in "First Adventures" for five issues; issue 5 ran a double installment to wrap up the storyline before the launch of Whisper's new standalone title.
It was in these short installments that Grant started experimenting with a storytelling trick that would become the hallmark of the series: caption boxes that delivered a narrative more or less disconnected from the events occurring in the panels in which they appeared.
Disconnected, but still somehow apropos, in a weird sort of way. Sometimes they were diary entries or letters, other times they were a monologue, but you wouldn't learn who was saying the monologue until several pages in, or even several issues later. ( Posting 20 out of 59 pages )
Whisper next appeared in Whisper (vol 2) #1. This time the publisher didn't go belly up, and the series continued for 37 issues. I may post more synopses here if there's interest, but probably not until next week -- winnowing down the pages and writing up the summaries for a plot heavy book like this takes a lot of time.
