Trying to finish a comic book in two weeks is tough.
Incredibly difficult. The story does get complicated and finding effective ways of telling the story without a character just blurting exposition at you has proven most difficult. However, approaching the storytelling like this has allowed me to draw some pretty neat panels.
As for comparing, I think it’s safe to there are certainly influences from other books/video games/films in there. Nothing is ever completely original. It’s how you connect with the reader that is just as important as providing them with a new reading experience.
Yes, everything in this book has been entirely my input. Not usually how I do things but it felt like the best approach for now.
The release date is the Friday of MCM in October :)
I must admit the protagonist, Oradow, feels a little bit like myself when I write it. It’s odd.
Also a lot of the characters are influenced by people I know. For example, the Trueman twins both have characters that are based on them.
Thank you! Yes, it was a conscious decision. Without giving away too much, Sleekem is incredibly important to the story and I want to really push how integral he is. I want the readers to really pay attention to everything to do with him. I’m very proud of his character.
