If you follow me on Twitter then this is not a surprise. Because I’ve been going on and on about my excitement to be working on my very first fully fleshed out creator owned project. But in case you’re not on Twitter (and these days I do not blame you for staying away), I want to use this post to give you an update.
First of all, I started with a page count of 52 pages. That has grown to 60 pages. While I wanted to cap it at that, I am going to be adding more pages to the book so that number will eventually grow. Just the other day I came up with new story elements to add which I believe will make the story better and will allow me to continue telling this story beyond this first arc.
Speaking of story arcs, this current story will be a single self contained story. So you’re getting a beginning and ending. But I have a plan in place that will allow me to continue the story beyond this story arc. It’s something I didn’t plan in the beginning but developed later on and I’m super excited about it.
With that said, I have decided to do a 2 issue mini series instead of a single book. It’s what I set out to do but ended up with a longer story that at the time seemed to be calling for a graphic novel treatment. However, after careful planning, I will be able to break up the book into 2 issues which will be more financially feasible for me. I will eventually do a kickstarter to collect both books into a single copy in the future. But right now, I’m excited to work on these as single 2 part issues.
And finally, the big reveal. Exactly what am I working on? What’s the name of the book? Is it a fantasy book? Sci-fi? superhero genre? What is it?!! While I did plan on revealing those details after I finished thumbnailing the entire book, since I am now doing 2 comics, I will be revealing the title and book details as soon as I’m done with thumbnails for the first issue. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at a panel from one of the pages.
Thanks for reading!
