Rob Chandler, Chris Flick and Matt Stout were nice enough to have me on The Lightbox Podcast last week. I had a great discussion with those guys, and talked about my take on and experience with Zuda Comics, my Creating Comics! column over at Comic Related, and the 30 Characters Challenge. I started up. 30 [...]
Well, hello there Gwen. Felix seems to have a walking problem…second time in as many days he’s not seen where he’s going and bumped into someone. Let’s hope this interaction with Gwen goes a lot better than when he bumped into Faith and Blake.
According to Dale Carnegie, the best way to get someone interested in you is to take an honest and sincere interest in that person yourself. At this point, Gwen‘s thinking Carnegie might be full of shit. But she’s trying, and you can’t fault a girl for that.
EXT. BLAM! COMICS – DAY GWEN (OS) Guess what day it is, Tony? INT. TONY’S OFFICE Gwen takes a seat with a huge stack of papers in hand. Tony sulks in his chair. TONY Uggh. Submissions. GWEN Come on, it won’t be that bad. I’ve presorted them the way you like. TONY Fine. Let’s get [...]
INT. STUDIO APARTMENT – DAY Skate talks on the phone while sitting at an art table. The tiny room is full of neatly organized shelves of comics, the walls covered in posters, half hip-hop, half comics. SKATE The Whale at eight. I’ll be there. Skate hears a KNOCK at the door. SKATE No, I don’t [...]

I’m enjoying splitting the pages in half, but having the panel arrangements in each half each be unique. Hopefully, it’s clear storytelling. Two things I’m happiest with on this page: First, Stan Lee in Panel 1 (’cause [...]

If you didn’t read this week’s column, you might want to check it out. In the column, I discuss re-writing, and how during the revision process, you often need [...]
Here we are once again. The third of five flashback/graphic novel scenes from Felix Hughes‘ “Over” that will take place in this graphic novel. I think one of the best things about good relationships is that they tend to make each person in the relationship better. At least, the ones that last do. And when [...]
Next step in Felix‘s plan…bring back the romance to the relationship. Here’s the thing about big gestures, though. It’s all about the timing. Trying too hard can often make things worse. I have a friend whose ex sent her 24 dozen roses on her 24th birthday, in an overture to win her back. Might have [...]
END ANIMATED FLASHBACK / BACK TO PRESENT INT. SKATE’S APARTMENT Felix puts down the copy of the graphic novel. SKATE You wore your heart on your sleeve, man. No shame in that. Skate puts a hand on Felix’s shoulder. SKATE But whatcha gonna do, Felix? She wasn’t feeling it. You had to know that. Felix [...]
