posticon Comic story accepted


I'm going to have a story published in an anthology comic later this summer emoticon The story was accepted a while ago, but I didn't want to announce it until I had seen the finished art (which I did yesterday) and knew it was definitely going to happen.

I'm not getting paid -- it's just a "try out" anthology for new writers and artists and it will have a pretty small print run, but it will be sold in real comic shops.

And my artist is awesome emoticon

Re: Comic story accepted


Thank you. It's only one page in a 52-page comic. I pitched a two-page story but the editor asked me to cut it to one because he had more submissions than he was expecting.

Before I even wrote the script, the artist I had been paired with sent me a rough page based on the one-paragraph pitch I had submitted. Incredibly, he had drawn exactly what I had visualised, without getting any guidance from me. Really, the most exciting thing about this was first seeing that page of art from a guy whose thoughts are obviously on the same wavelength as mine!

Anyway, all I had to do was write captions to fit in his panels, and they are now being added to the page by a professional letterer.

It doesn't really feel like I contributed much at all (except for the original idea, obviously). I wrote a one-paragraph pitch and then about 70 words of dialogue, that's all. Matt (the artist) will deserve all the credit if people like it. And he's a great artist -- he's only just finished university but he has a lot of talent and commitment and I hope he goes far.

Hey don't sell yourself short! He wouldn't have been able to draw it if you hadn't wrote it. emoticon Congrats! emoticon

That's wonderful news, David!

I'm so happy you found an artist who can draw what you see in your mind. That's even better than getting a one-page comic published.
