Issue #2 version 2

November 14, 2009

This is the latest version of the second issue of my superhero comic book, Rapid City.

Read it here.


It’s a science word, right? Means, like, motion energy? Right?


Right. Like my powers. Kinetic energy.


That makes sense. I like it when names make sense.

In this issue, Kinetic gets closer to acting on his dream, and Maxwell Murder makes a move. In this version, some of the secenes were tightened up to make room for Max.

In this re-write, I compressed a few scenes, brought in Maxwell Murder, and corrected some of the character names which had been changed in later scripts.


Issue #2

November 2, 2009

This is the script for the second issue of my monthly superhero comic book, Rapid City.

Read Issue #2 here.

Panel 4: Rat’s eye view, peeking out from some hidey-hole as the two walk past.


“Could be I’m shooting at the same 3 or 4 rats every day and they don’t mind it at all…”

In this issue, the running changes start to show. The character who had been named Rampart in the previous issue is now named Kinetic. There are a few other details that, as of “press time”, have not been ironed out. They aren’t that important, and apart from some name confusion, the story is intact.


Putting in work

October 29, 2009

Last night I sat and wrote four new comic pages, a complete scene in the Maxwell Murder story line. I spent a good amount of time just staring blankly at the computer screen.

But, I did NOT check my email. I didn’t look at livejournal, or terrordrome, or even check the stats of this blog. I didn’t even turn on my wireless connection.

My girlfriend went to bed and I said “I will be there soon.” and I kept plugging away at that scene until it was done.

The scene is pretty good. Maxwell is becoming a fairly interesting character. But, that is not what I am proud of. Right now I am just proud that I did not let myself get distracted.
