At what point in the process was the decision made to release your adaptation as a miniseries, and that did affect any aspect of your work?
The decision to release it as a miniseries came about a week after I finished my 120-page script and layout adaptation (ARRRRGH!!) I had to go back in, find the breaking points, add title pages to issues #2-4 that could be later dropped for the compilation without interrupting the flow of the story. It took all of 45 minutes as luckily there were natural breaks every 30-31 pages. As a result, the new title page and page two will remain in the collected series. The new page two with the Japanese poem excerpt only came about as a result of the changes, so in retrospect I'm glad it worked out as it did.
