WHAT IS THE BREAK-OUT COMIC BOOK EXPERIMENT? (UPDATED AUGUST 9, 2011!)
I'm glad you asked.
The Break-Out Comic Book Experiment is just that—an experiment!
To work in some capacity at a comic book company by my twenty-eighth birthday
Write a monthly comic.
I will post one issue by the 17th of each month in two forms, short story/novel and comic book script. The proposed series is entitled False Dawn. Though not part of the project’s outline, a short story might pop up in my head. It happens—*shrugs* — and it will be posted in same formats.
When breaking into comics, writing is arguably harder than artists. Since I can’t go to ComicCon and attend a talent search for writers, I’m hoping to showcase my writing talents here. Many Internet comic book creators have become paid comic book creators for main companies through their blogs/Webpages. Though I am not an artist (but I'm working on it!), I’m hoping my writing will speak for me.
