    That may very well be true, but i wouldn't know. While i plan on shopping it around here in Portugal (i know people who claim to know people,or something), the truth is i haven't really thought about it yet. It's only my second serious attempt to write a comic script, and the first was only a 6 page story, so i wanna be sure i CAN write it before making up my mind about where to try to sell it.
    But sure, why not Brazil? At this point, even France might be a good option, the artist on the project knows an editor there...
    We'll see. First, i have to get the thing done...

    I do create comics.
    I'm the writer and creator of Sky Pirates of Valendor.

    I've produce three issues so far, number four is almost done, and number five closes the first chapter for this story. I've started to outline the next five to six issues.
    I wish I was better at promoting right now,I normally let my wife handle that part of, but it's up on the website and I haul my butt to every comic book show I can find.
    I would love to find a artist for a webcomic or even a second story.

    Writer & Artist, Inker & Colorist. I've been looking into self publishing for awhile now, it looks like I'm gonna use Createspace to do it...but I need to find an online site where I can actually produce the damn thing, with gas prices quickly approaching 8 million dollars per gallon I can't afford to pick up Illustrator or any of the other programs that will let me even use Createspace. Bleh.

    Hell yes! I'd love to make comics, me and a friend had started one, we finished about an issue before realizing we had no artist. That and since he's a far more dedicated and serious writer he started a novel and got side tracked. Now we're making a magazine, so god only knows when we'll get around to finishing the comic up.

    One of these days.
    Its part of a life sort at this point
    Most likely is something incredibly childish and lo-fi that I shall photocopy and hand out / put on tables wherever I can.

    so many ideas jotted - none of them fleshed - I will surely die unfulfilled.
    The fear of being poor and alone is strong in this one.

    I learn by doing as well. Mostly short pieces since I started (published here and there,) learning the form by limiting my page count/space, which will hopefully make it easier to expand to larger narratives when the time comes for it. Writing's always been easier for me (you pick up a lot when you learn to write prose), though since I had no formal arts training, I tend to struggle with getting the visuals down. But I work on it regularly when I have the time, and I try to keep a steady output, and improve as I go along.

    i am making comics. i have more a lot more stories than i do comix, so i have recently stopped writing so damn much so i can concentrate on drawing these things, mainly 1-3 page serials. one is about an african kid with aids who goes on a hunger strike, anothers about stumbling monks in the slum and i've finished some other random ones. i will put them all together soon, like in a magazine or something. i've got quite a few long stories i really wanna convert into comics but i want to wait until i am a lot better at drawing. i ain't a perfectionist at all but those stories is my babies and i wanna make them come out proper like they are in my head.

    I'm primarily a novel/short story kind of gal, but I'm in the middle of doing a comic with a wonderful artist that spawned out of a short story.

    It's a series of horror shorts, but they're more Jamesian (as in M. R. James) than gory tales. Things are progressing well on it, and I suspect we'll shop it to Slave Labor Graphics, because the artist has a friend who works there and they seem to be the best match.

    @Kieran Natures Morte is awesome.

    I want to make comics. I've been trying recently to draw and draw but I'm a much better writer. My only problem is that I'm an incredibly slow writer. Incredibly.

    I... have already made comics? That count?

    I did a monthly non-fiction thing for a couple years. It was published in the local alt-weekly.

    Now, my friend Joe Killian and I are working on a sort of noirish, voodoo thing. He writes, I artomatize.

    I'm also signed on to letter Molly Crabapple's upcoming graphic novel. I'm also working on getting some coloring gigs. So, yeah, I comic it up.

    @ Glenn: Thank you! I'm half Norwegian (both by blood & having lived here half my life), so I figured I'd take the opportunity to do something with my family's rather conflicted involvement in the war across the pond where nobody'd mind half as much as they would here. Chthonic is my big guilt project -- I have so much script from the writer, and so little time to actually do the pages... Story of everybody's life, I know.
    Why do you ask? We're not on some kind of a "hit list" now, to eliminate potential competition, are we?
    My thoughts exactly, heh.

    I want to make comics, to write 'em.

    I want people to read the comics I've already made.
    • CommentTimeAug 26th 2008
    I want to make comics as well. I have first issues and test scripts for things scripted. I've looked for artists. I've had artists flake out on me. Some day though. I may need to learn to draw.

    I've just begun working on a project with an artist friend of mine; she found me through my goofy blog. I might be checking out P & P soon. Thanks, Mr. Ellis!

    When I have any spare minutes, i'm currently writing/tinkering with 3 ideas at the moment and have an illustrator working on a 4th that I scripted a few months back...

    ...the illustrator went AWOL not long after we went through the script which had me a little worried but she's just resurfaced from a busy patch of far more profitable freelance work...

    Writing fiction is one part of my day job, which is something I always set out to do.

    But yes, I want to write comics.
    • CommentTimeAug 26th 2008
    I have about 5 pages left on MOONSHINE, an OGN written by Dan Curtis Johnson. I've done a few shorts before, but this will be my first complete work. It's taken an embarrassingly long time to draw.

    It's taken me so long to finish that one of the casualties of the process has been my online portfolio, so although theirs no current samples online, I'd still encourage everyone to check it out once it's available.

    I sometimes work on some comics. The time issue is always a killer, and I'm trying to focus on developing a regular production schedule for writing more at the moment. I've done a lot more storyboarding than comics, here are a couple snippets from some boards:



    favorite dream storyboards

    When I'm a bit more organized I'd like to devote an hour a day to a web-comic I'm working on inspired by the look and feel of Masamune Shirow's Appleseed. I've got about 12 unscanned inked pages. I want 20 before I begin putting it on the web. Here a drawing that I look at that sums up the concept for me for some reason (but means nothing at all by itself):

    concept for comic thing

    It's a challenge for me to keep my line-work loose enough. Whenever I get committed to a project, I always get too serious, and everything gets blocky and stilted-looking.

    Now I want to work on it again. I need to start putting that hour into my schedule.

    Yes, but I don't know why.
