Issue #3

November 15, 2009

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

Read it here.

Panel 2 Shot of Glyph talking.


It’s like if you’re backstage after a concert, or at an after-party, no one picks up a guitar and starts jamming. Not because they don’t love the music, but because they just need a break from it. See, with great responsibility there must also come great pressure. This is just a friendly way for these people to all blow off the same steam.

Panel 3 A pull back to see both of them again.


Maybe I just haven’t been at this long enough to really get it.


Could be. Or it could be parties just aren’t your scene.

In this issue, Kinetic compares different views of what it means to be a superhero, and begins to realize what it will take for him to live that life.


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.

Issue #1 version 2

November 9, 2009

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

Read Issue #1 version 2 here

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.


Script test

October 20, 2009

This is a short piece that I wrote a while back a favor for a friend.

Red Lion: B-Sides

It is based on some characters from our Rapid City comic book and some of his daughter’s toys. The germ of the idea came from her suggestion of “Red Lion vs Blue Zebra”

If you follow this link, please let me know if it works.

I would, of course, appreciate comments on the script itself, but I am mostly just testing to see if the basic set-up work.
