Finding a tie in the family compost this summer inspired me to write a comic script based on the idea of someone finding a zombie in a compost heap. As of a moment ago, I feel the script is complete– written and revised. It is 21 pages in length because Aces Weekly features 21-page comics and I’d love to do more work for them. I am going to show the script to an artist friend on Tuesday. If Aces Weekly is not an option then I will have the comic produced for The Grim Collection.
As mentioned earlier, Manoel Magalhães and I collaborated on a 21-page sci-fi comic for Aces Weekly. That comic, Found, appears in volume 28 of Aces Weekly. Volume 28 started to run yesterday (May 29, 2017).
It’s always a pleasure working with Manoel. I was honoured that he reached out to me to do this short comic. I am proud of it but I have to be honest and say it was a challenge to write. Certain sections got rewritten several times. I kept wanting to tighten up the focus. Manoel was very patient with me and he turned in excellent pages regardless of what I threw at him.
If you are an Aces Weekly subscriber I hope you enjoy Found.
As mentioned yesterday, the new comic Manoel Magalhaes is working on for The Grim Collection was put on hold a few months ago when Manoel asked me to work with him on an even more exciting project. I am now proud to reveal the details of that project.
Manoel asked me to work with him on a 21-page comic for Aces Weekly, which is the award-winning, exclusively digital-delivery comic magazine published by David Lloyd. Past contributors include industry veterans such as David Lloyd, Phil Hester, John McCrea, and David Hine, but also a variety of other writers and artists. Manoel had already been published in Aces Weekly so he has a relationship with the publication. Manoel pitched our idea (and me) to Lloyd and in late 2016 we received approval and were given a publication date.
I am, therefore, so excited to tell you that “Found” written by me and drawn by Manoel will be published in the May 29 edition of Aces Weekly.
Here is a look at some of the characters in our 21-page sci-fi contribution to Aces Weekly. These are sketches from Manoel.
