We all love comic-books. It's a practical fact. And all of us at some point in our lives have wanted to create a comic book series. Spilling the stuff we love into a real life object which we can call our own but we lack the initiative to go forward. But I think we can make it. I know it's a very ambitious project and I doubt it will ever work but I'd regret it if I didn't try. I will try, with YOUR hopes and ideas, to assemble a universe and start to make our own universe. Superheroes, detectives, cowboys. Whatever you want.
How It Will Work
Step 1: Who's Interested? First I need to establish who would like to join in. This I will essentially do by asking anybody with an idea for a character, is a talented writer or a talented artist to e-mail simply saying they're interested. Before I get back to you guys to ask a few questions on how you would like to contribute
Step 2: Assembling Continuity: Once all the ideas have gathered I will try and create a universe lore and timeline which all makes sense which might involve tweaking the ideas but letting all of them fit. This may take a while but I would return to those involved with the lore of their character.
Step 3: Match-Up's: Now knowing the characters and lore. The writers and artists. I will try and match the writer to the artist and (if required) give them a basis for a first issue. I will give them the others e-mail to correspond and ask for updates every once in a while. Before they get back to me when they have a finished product.
Step 4: Marketing: I think it's pretty safe to say, no matter how popular, it won't be getting on the shelves. So instead the best course of action is probably a web comic. But to do his step I need someone who can create such a website (preferably a free one) who's assistance would be greatly appreciated.
So, Who's Up For It?
