Writing a manga and looking for artists.

Comic Ideas May. 14th, 2012 @ 01:02 am

Hey all,
I'm a writer that writes lots of different stories from comics, mangas and novels.I've got lots of story ideas and I was hoping I could find some wonderful artists to create them into some real life comics.
My plan is either to put them on a site caleld capsulecomputers.com.au that I have some connections with and we would put the comic/manga in it's own section to advertise it to the thousands of viewers that come to the site. The other plan is make the comic great and al then send it out to every comic publisher we know:D

Anyway I have LOTS of story ideas
If you're interested in the least check them out: auraredwood.livejournal.com/tag/story idea :D
and I hope someone would like to go on this little journey with me :P

p.s. I edited this post so if the comments don't make sense....that's why :P

Laws of Motion Dec. 9th, 2009 @ 12:10 pm
This is from my script blog at http://monolithllc.com/rapidcity/

This is one of those cool writing things that just happen sometimes.

I have been writing this experiment/comic book about a superhero struggling to get started. It is a metaphor for ME struggling to get started. It is a lot of fun to watch it develop organically.

The character’s name was originally “Rampart”..as in “defensive structure”. But, during the writing of the scene where he decides on his name, in conversation with the character Monkey….the name Kinetic arrived all on its own.

It happened in real time, right on my keyboard. The dialog tag even said “Rampart” as i wrote him arriving at a different conclusion… Kinetic.

The other day I was struggling to come up with a way to open issue 4. I needed a bit of room between the end of the previous issue and the action of the current one. I already had the second scene written, I just needed that buffer in there.

I started thinking about the word “kinetic” and a great idea occurred to me.

“Kinetic” means “motion”. Our universe is governed by “Laws of Motion”. Laws of Kinetics if you please.

As I said above, my story is a bout a character struggling to get started.

Any High School graduate should be able to tell you that Newton’s first law of motion states that “an object at rest tends to stay at rest until acted upon by an outside force”.

How about that. That is exactly the theme of my first story arc.

So now I have a guiding concept for my next two story arcs as well.

My first deals with objects (and lives) at rest and in motion.

So this means that my second and third arcs will deal with gravitation and equal and opposite reactions respectively.

Still not sure how that will present itself, but now I have an overall concept and possible titles.

I love it when things work out like that.


Comic Book Script Blog Nov. 8th, 2009 @ 07:36 pm
I have decided to start writing a script for a monthly comic book regardless of involvement from an artist.

I am doing this to learn how to keep a monthly deadline. To put the pressure on, I am publishing these scripts, as well as running commentary on creating a comic script, in my new comic book script blog at http://365comics.wordpress.com/

If you want to go straight to the scripts go here http://365comics.wordpress.com/gallery/
I just posted a new version of issue #1.

We're all writers here, so I don't want to "pitch" you. If you are interested, check it out. If you check it out, let me know what you think.

» Killing the Grizzly #1: A Bold New Era

Written By: Dave Baxter

The world has changed.

There are less theatrical ways to put that, but none simpler in declaring this manifest truth: we’ve progressed. Beyond the printed page, though we’ve yet to leave those bastard scions of trees behind; beyond the water-stained warehouses and corner-crumpled cardboard boxes of overfed distribution systems. We feel far stranger today sitting there with a newspaper in hand, unable to double-click on names within the articles.

» The Septagon Briefing #5: Genre

Written By: Dr Preston Park Cooper

One of the most frequently-asked questions of professional authors is “Where do you get your ideas?” This really translates into “I want to be an author; where can I get ideas?” That’s a valid question.

One place you can start is: Genre—namely, examining the genres you like. What attracts you to your favorite genres?

» Diamond requires UPC symbols on all books
My two latest books were rejected by Diamond (no surprise, I guess), mainly because they didn't have UPC symbols and/or ISBN's. I asked when this became a requirement, since it's not listed on their website. I was told by one of their brand managers that it is indeed NOT on the website yet, but will be after the website's latest update.

So, don't bother sending them anything unless it has a UPC symbol and/or ISBN.

I was also told that Scared Ya! was also rejected because it's magazine size and most retailers don't like magazine-sized comics. When did this become the case? Can anyone tell me this?

They also thought the reprint of BBVD wouldn't make their $1,500.00 benchmark even though the first printing sold out in rapid time. Oh well.
