View Full Version : I made a comic book...
04-25-2006, 08:02 PM
It was for my class. It's only 11 pages, not a full-size comic. Judge it as harshly as you see fit, but keep in mind that it was done over the course of about a week and a half, total.

I remember when you used to frequent these parts quite often Corpy, you should come back every once in a while with more greatness.

Awesome man :O

Art's pretty good, man.

Wicked.Great stuff :up:

Thanks, everyone. I drew it to scale on normal 8.5" x 11" paper and I had to condense it all into 11 pages because I couldn't physically draw more than that in the time I had. So I've been thinking I might revisit it, expand it to a full 22 or 25 pages so the story works better, and draw it on actual 11" x 17" bristol boards to get the whole comic illustrating experience.

Neat little story.

That cover looks awesome :eek:
But you lost me once I saw the vampire...i'll read it eventually
04-27-2006, 06:34 PM
The vampire's only on the first page. I thought starting the comic through the sketches of the protagonist would be cool.

sweet :) :up: the only wrong with the story is the ending doesn't feel completed other then that it was good
04-28-2006, 12:15 AM
Yeah, I pretty much rushed the ending. I wanted a more climactic fight sequence, but I had to go all Bendis on it and cut it down to like 80% setup and 20% action. I would've stretched it out to around 13 or 14 pages and included a splash page if I had time.

I actually read it an dit's great. Wonderful art too! Why arent you in the business?!
04-28-2006, 01:37 AM
I read the first page:
He did a comic book about Dracula and he didn't tell me? ME OF ALL PEOPLE!
Needless to say my fears were soon laid to rest. It was a nice coming of age story and I really liked the bit about "the band responds to your desires, not your wishes". That was a cool twist. You should really expand the story.

Really good stuff man. I never come into this part of the thread, but I quite enjoyed your comic.
Not to shabby Corp. Love to see more sometime.

I'm trying to find more narratives to draw, actually. Now that I've graduated I'm trying to find a decent 9-to-5 that'll leave me free time to work on art. The professor whose class I turned this in for actually told me that he wanted to stay in touch and hopefully get me to draw some stuff for this comic society type of thing here at UF. (He also mentioned that those same people are pretty close to closing a deal for Jeff Smith to speak at next year's UF comic convention. :D) Anything that lets me work on the narrative aspect would be good.
05-04-2006, 10:15 PM
Forgive my stupidity but what are narratives?
