Post subject: Creative Team Assemble! Writer looking for Artists...
My name is Danger_Slater. I am a professinal writer/novelist who is currently looking to get into comic writing. Though I can write a script like nobody's business, I've been finding it's extraordinarily difficult to break in to the industry without a proper team behind me. Most publishers, it seems, don't just want script-only submissions. They want packaged, prepared comic books and teams.
So that's what I aim to do. I'm looking to put together a team to create and work on a book to shop around to various publishers, the end goal being a monthly ongoing comic book deal.
I have recently finished writing the 6th (out of 6) issue of an original comic I have created. The 6 books would encompass the first story arc.
As for the tone and look, it is a superhero book, a dark comedy/satire along the lines of Ennis or Warren Ellis (with the existentialism of Morrison for good measure because Morrison rules, and honestly, why the **** not?) but a little more on the absurd side (think South Park).
Artwise, I envision it a little exaggerated and very bright - like Chew or possibly the work of Darick Robertson.
If you're curious as to the sort of stories I write, feel free to check out my website (or buy my book. That would rock!):
Click on 'published works' for links.
I should stress, I don't want to "hire out" an artist(s) because, honestly, that's not the kind of thing I'm looking for. I would want this comic to belong as much to the artists as it belongs to me. I'm looking for collaborators. I'm looking for partners. I believe I have the talent, ideas and skills needed to make it in this industry, and I need an equally-talented team to work with me. And to that end, I'm willing to help cultivate and develop my partner(s) ideas as well.
Whadaya say? Let's make some ****in' art!
If you're interested, send me an email:
and we'll get to talking and see if we gel.
Bonus points if you live in New Jersey (Northeastern NJ/NYC area, as that's where I live and that's where the comic takes place).
