This is going to come across as a shameless plug, I know, but I honestly would value your input.
One of the ventures that I’ve embarked on since leaving TWotA is to start writing comic scripts - originally it was an exercise to instruct me in brevity ( :anjou_embarassed: ), but it’s something that I’m quite taken with now - pretty much all the fiction that I’ve written in the past year has been scriptwork. I’d like to make some money off of it at some point, but while I wait for Tharg the Mighty to give me feedback on my Future Shocks for 2000AD I’ve been contributing to a few webcomics for practise and to build up a portfolio. One of these is %between%Sonic the Comic Online (a continuation to the Egmont-Fleetway comic that ran in the UK over the Nineties), and my latest effort concerns one of the premier light-gun franchises and purveyor of vintage atrocious voice acting, House of the Dead.
With one Lisa Lee taking on the art [link to her DeviantArt page], I’ve started a comic based on the HotD universe. It’s my ambition to entwine the guns, guts and gore of a traditional zombie slaughterfest with a deeper storyline elevated above arcade-machine superficiality… but you can still read the dialogue to yourself in hammy voices if you want to.
This first instalment (STCO uploads comics in batches with ‘issues’ every couple of months, mimicking the style of the original anthology comic) is very much a scene-setter to clear away the backstory, but there’s action and intrigue in there still so I hope that it interests regardless.
Enjoy! Criticism is, as always, much appreciated.
