Bodging is part of the production process, getting the comic page ready for the camera. Story boards would often have portions missing and the bodger would need to correct this in the following ways:

  • draw in missing parts
  • clean up the page (removing pencils or tea stains)
  • make last-minute changes to the dialogue at the request of the editor
  • working on black and white bromides (photographs) of colour artwork (the colour had been bleached out and the modelling effect had to be replaced by cross-hatching)

It was through her experience at lettering changes that Annie Parkhouse went from being a bodger to a letterer[1].
