    Aspiring writer here.

    I have one script in the noir genre that had an artist attached, but he dropped out. I want to find a new artist, but I decided I want to do another draft first.

    Way back in the prehistoric 1980s when I was a teenager, I was allowed to write a screenplay for credit in English class. Although much of the story is what one might expect from a teenager, I've gone back to the basic idea to try to craft a comic series from it.

    I'm also working on a script based on my longtime interest in Celtic religion and history, and trying to combine it with my love of supernatural mysteries and superheroes.

    I keep two blogs and a LiveJournal just so I can have regular outlets for writing that others can see. It's helped me become more confident and better attuned to my own writing voice, which has helped in writing fiction.

    I'm a writer with a number of projects that may, or may not ever reach completion. Everything from Bible stories with the sex and violence left in to Iraqi zombie stories. I've even got a couple of trad-superhero and manga stories ready for artists

    However, I have really bad luck with them. If they're lucky they flake out or move to Tokyo. If they're unlucky they develop serious eye conditions or have to get real jobs. A serious air crash in Uganda this weekend will be proof-positive that I'm jinxed

    There are people who don't want to work in comics?

    I dabbled with comics back in the day, resulting in a single run of a xeroxed book called "Cheap Bullets". (Click that link and you can get a free PDF of the thing.) Now I'm a full-time freelance writer with a couple of comic scripts in my back pocket, hoping to find an artist one day to do a creator-owned pitch or indie run. Something. Material that I can produce wholly on my own — short fiction, a novel — has my attention lately, though, if only 'cause the search for a willing comics artist is something that takes a lot of time to do right, and I don't want to do it badly.

    Anyway. Yes. I'd like to get a few comics into the world.

    I've framed three stories that I will script (when I'm finished with music projects), and I'd love a great artist. So put me down for a "ME TOO"

    I want to make a living out of making comics too. I have made two so far both viewable on my myspace page seen below:

    One is war comic and the other is comic book music video.

    Currently working on a mini comic, though I'm in the ugly sketching pages so I don't exactly want to flaunt those. I have a four page comic scattered around the internet from when I took a Comic Book Production course taught by Steve Rolston; though I think of that comic as more of a learning experience than something showcasing any talent.

    I'll be sure to post said mini comic when it's done.

    I'm a pseudo writer learning to draw to make comics. I wrote a few scripts a decade ago but all artists kept drifting away from comics (damn you real life) and my projects never went on.

    I am using what little free time I have to write scripts for what I hope will become comics. At the moment I am roughly 120 pages in to one project with an artist attached and I have begun about 5 other projects, all in various stages of development, scripting, etc.

    I would love to write comics for a living but if that never happens that is ok. I just love doing it.

    I just want to colour them in :D
    • CommentTimeAug 26th 2008
    Would like to, yeah, but I'm not going to delude myself I have the backbone to follow it up as a career. I mean, I've had a script for a 2000ad one shot written for over 3 years now, and although I think it's pretty good I've been put off simply because I'm required to write a treatment and an author bio. Lazy, lazy, lazy ...

    I think it would be awesome to make a comic,

    I lack only two things...Talent and Ambition!

    Other than that I'm right on track.

    Me, too.

    I have a few scripts, tons of ideas, and one project in the works. Which means I have someone actually drawing it for me instead of writing and drawing myself. I found it too distracting and wanting to edit twice as much while doing each task right now.

    The slow grind of doing it after work and in your spare time is probably the most annoying thing about "getting it done". I think myself and my artist both need to get fired so we have some serious time to devote to the project. =)

    Warren issued a link to a DESOLATION JONES and FELL script about a year or maybe almost two years ago that I found enlightening at the time.

    Since then I have been using Celtx to work in. Which makes collaboration very easy to do and the comic template formatting isn't to shabby. The service is free and you have an accessible back up for when Warren's your computer dies. Well, providing you uploaded it of course.

    I'm an aspiring comics writer. I'm working with an artist on a humor book. It's a bunch of short pieces that will hopefully come together into a semi-coherent whole; our chief model is Snake 'N' Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret by Michael Kupperman.

    Hoo yes, I would like to make comics.

    First desperate inkling came when I bought Jimmy Corrigan: Smartest Boy On Earth when it came out in hardback and lent it around the place. A bunch of us were blown away by it and pledged to become comic writers/artists/whatever. Not much has really come of that, to be honest. I can both write and draw fairly well, but I always figured that I lack the kinds of skills needed to write and draw comics.

    However, a few things I've read lately - Rian Hughes' Yesterday's Tomorrow, the backmatter in Jonathan Hickman's Nightly News, James Turner's Nil - have inspired me to get off my arse and do something with the skills I have. We'll see.

    I would love to write comics. I have several stories planned, but never seem to be able to find the time to actually sit down and write properly. This should change soon hopefully :)

    Luis, another portuguese here, and also interested in the comics medium. Can you shed any light on what you're working on?

    Making a webcomic is somewhere between a dream and a long term goal for me. I love the creative control involved, the ability to tell the kind of stories that I want to tell instead of working for some profit-driven machine in the entertainment industry, and, if successful, that the only geographical limitations of such a career would be the merchandise inventory, provided a third party distributor wasn't involved.
    But I refuse to actually start the project before my income stabilizes, I really need that day job thing worked out before starting something that will be extremely time-consuming. I pretty much have a list of tests and preliminary scripts to work out to iron out the production cycle to a predictable format and I really ought to start a small webcomic before I embark on the one that I genuinely want to do, since it seems like a good idea and several of the successful web comic artists I admire aren't on their first comic.
