Image Comics Expo: A Brief Recap

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. Since my interest in comics resurfaced back in 2005, I’ve been a fairly regular attendee of comic conventions in California (average about one per year). I’ve primarily been attending Wondercon and APE, and I still have plans to attend a Comic-Con at least once. Out of the comic […]



Some Changes to the Lightweightz Anthology Scripts 3

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. In light of a recent script review I received via Comixtribe, I’ve decided to make a few changes to the scripts for the Lightweightz Anthology.

Hello everyone, I pray all is well.

What’s Your Favorite Comic or Graphic Novel? 4

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my favorite comic to date is Rising Stars by J. Michael Straczynski. Thanks to the Rising Stars: Compendium, I have read the entire series as well as the short-stories of the main characters. Although it’s a ton of reading, I’ll probably […]

Writing Comics is a Marathon, Not a Sprint 3

Hello everyone, I pray all is well. After reading over the feedback I received today on one of my four-page scripts I submitted to a comic book editor, I’ve realized two things. On the one hand, I have come a long way since jotting down my initial ideas for Lightweightz, to where I am today. […]
