VICTIMS AT THE END OF THE WORLD - TRADE PAPERBACK [17 May 2007|09:44pm]

sleepoverjesus

VICTIMS AT THE END OF THE WORLD is the tale of the world beyond ours where forgotten dolls are reborn and reformed in a way which mirrors our own world in world-mirroring otherworldliness...
Of course the series has little to do with this, and is all about Algernon, a furry in his early twenties who lives in the city, works in a used record store, frequents the local Starbuckses and spends his time obsessing over his friends and their skewed relationships, trying his best to be the person everyone (who counts) thinks he should be as he struggles with the conflicts of life and death, love and friendship and heroes and victims.

PREVIEW (SOME ADULT CONTENT)

So, I have COMPLETELY NEW web stuff up for VICTIMS AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
I'm quite happy with it, though I wish I could have gotten the Character bios done tonight.
Still, you can now read the first 7 pages in their entirety, you can watch the Short Film adaptation, you can buy T-Shirts and... Well, that's about it.
But what more do you want from a site for a graphic novella?
(seriously, that's not a rhetorical, if there's anything else you can think of, let me know).

PS The home page won't look so lame once I design a cover and actually have it for sale.

Who has had experience with
http://www.comixpress.com

The price is excellent, especially to run a graphic novel.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is there anybody out there... [06 Apr 2006|09:34am]

Hey.

Not sure if anyone is out there, but I had an idea and I wanted to see if anyone else here thought it might be interesting or useful.

Are there any chicago writing groups that focus on comics specifically or even on sci-fi and fantasy or (god help me) 'genre fiction?' If thre aren't do you think it might be worthwhile to start one?

I don't know about you all but I'm having trouble getting useful feedback when I run into a writing wall with my stuff. It would be EXTREMELY helpful to me to have a group of people to bounce ideas off of and get real critiques from that have some idea of the differences between regular books and comics and the ground in between. I have gone to a couple of writing groups/workshops in the past, but the people there didn't get what I was trying to do with my work, so most of the critiques I got (I felt) were more related to the 'comic-ness' of the piece. (DOes that make sense?

Anyway, what do you all think? Is this a worthwhile idea?

Whooowie...
I totally redid the PRETENTIOUS COMICS website.
I mean, yeah, it's still the same basic scheme, but now people won't have to deal with pop-up windows just to look at the cover and art previews, and going from one issue's page to another's is a breeze now...
Rather proud, if I must say so myself.
Please, take a looksee, tell me what you think :)

Greetings :)
I'm a Chicago comic writer and artist.
I figured I'd take this opportunity (since there hasn't been a new post in three months, and the last person was, well, me) to let you all know that I have some paintings up for auction on e-bay here.
I guess, in a way, this is somewhat comic related.
You see, over the past couple years, I've been trying to save up paintings for a show, but I'd end up selling one here and there, and could never quite get a full collection together. Well, I've recently decided to do a series of 10 pieces, all based on my comic VICTIMS AT THE END OF THE WORLD. Therefore, I've decided to "liquidate my inventory" (god, i sound like the Empire Carpet guy, or even Celozzi Ettleson), selling all my stragglers on eBay, 3 or 4 at a time.
Thanks for reading
-Rickey :)

*whew*

Just thought I'd drop a post here to show the project that I'm working on. This is Sunrise. It started out as a comic book concept my husband and I were working on, but it's morphed into a serialized illustrated web-novel. The first chapter to the first story is up now and we're planning to update monthly. After the entire first book is done, I'm hoping we can afford to do a print run.

Oh, and we're doing a weekly strip called Captured by Pirates in Good. :-) It makes us laugh.

Anyhoo, comments are welcome. We hope you like it.

Uh hello. My name's Max Morris, and I've lived in Chicago for over a year now. I am a huge fan of weirdo independent comics from Drawn and Quarterly and Fantagraphics and some superhero stuff, even though I'm not a huge fan of a lot of that stufff. I hope to get a book self published out within the next few years, but as a student of Columbia College I am oft burned out. But cartooning is what I want to do, god help me, and its one of the few things I think I could do well. My favorite creators right now are Los Bros Hernandez, Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, Katshuhiro Otomo, Carla Speed McNeil, Paul Pope, Brain Bendis, Sam Keith, Dan Clowes, Chis Ware, Alan Moore, and I've really been enjoying David B. and Osama Tezuka. Any advice on self puplishing and how to sleep at night will be appriciated. Thanks!
