Hi everyone,

My name is Steve. I am 40 years old, living in upstate NY. I have been writing for as long as I can remember, starting out with things that I called "novels" but were more like really long short stories, numbering about 40 handwritten pages.

At first my stories were lame knock-offs of the first author I ever read (Stephen King). Even when I outgrew my obsession with King, I stayed within the horror genre.

Then in 10th grade, I heard a song by the Cure called "Killing an Arab." One of my friends told me it was based on a book called THE STRANGER by Albert Camus. I read that book, and nothing has been the same ever since.

Now even though I still write dark stories (and in fact, the comic I wrote is a zombie/post-apocalyptic tale), I try to inject it with more than just shock value. I take a cue from Italian horror movie director Dario Argento, who makes what I call "art house slasher films." Most of his movies are basically slasher movies, but made with a bizarre sense of surrealism that elevates them to art instead of just exploitation.

In any event, that is me in a nutshell. This post is already a bit wordy, so I will save talk about my comic for a different thread.

I look forward to talking to you all.

I should mention that my comic is currently in development, with the first issue being drawn. I wrote it in five "parts," just like Shakespeare used to write plays in five acts. (In fact, for a long time I was jokingly calling it SHAKESPEARE WITH ZOMBIES.)

If you want to follow the development, we are on Facebook and Twitter.

Hi and welcome! You could use this subforum for promoting your comic. A longer, more detailed description and maybe a few teaser images, or considering that it's still being drawn, some wip images would make it all the more cool to look at.

Thanks! I will definitely post the plot (without spoilers of course) and other things about it there. We do have a few pages drawn, so I can post some of those too.

Hi! Welcome to the forum! ^_^

By the way, the URL you entered on your forum Profile settings may be incorrect--the little "www" button the forum sticks at the bottom of your posts isn't linking to anything, at any rate. : o

I didn't put any webpage in there. Thanks for making me aware of it though. Smile

Could you let me know if my Facebook link works properly?

I don't see a separate Facebook link... The "www" button is still not working, though (you can see and test if for yourself on your own posts ^_^).

I cannot do that at the time of this writing, because I am sneaking on this site while on break at work, and all social media sites are blocked. LOL
