Interview on Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

Eric Jones and were interviewed about a Supergirl sequel, writing Mad Hatter, The Danger Club and... well that's mostly it. But it's extensive, as neither Eric or myself are very good at shutting up.

Also, in a separate post on Comic Box, there's some more never-before-seen production art. This time, it's Kara Zor-El, a bit older and posing as the Kryptonian hero of ancient legend: Flamebird.

Danger Club preview posted at Bleeding Cool.

A fan named Jude Deluca created a Facebook page to support the publishing of Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade. If you're on Facebook, show your love and join. I will post some never before seen art from the previous series on the site, as way of temptation.

Part one of a Doctor Who webcomic I wrote just went up on Rich's ComixBlog.


Seeds of Destruction was originally conceived of as a pitch for a Doctor Who audio book, and I decided I would be happier with my pitch if it was presented with some art. So Rich was kind enough to illustrate the first chapter for me.

Here's a excerpt-



Rich also does the very fun comic strip titled "Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic". Check out YAFGC here.

Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade - Concept art

Been sitting on this for a couple of years now. Figured might as well let people see a bit of what we had been thinking for Supergirl's future as she enters the turbulent world of high school.

One of the things I would like to point out about these images is the evolution of Kara's design. When the first series was announced (along with an image never intended for the public) the common complaint was that our Supergirl was boyish. That she was rough looking. That she looked awkward and maybe even a little weird.

Eric could have drawn Supergirl as the epitome of style and grace. But that wouldn't have been our Supergirl. Our Supergirl was a character who needed to grow. She was overly self-aware, insecure and gangly, that's part of being a young teenager (particularly as younger teens see themselves from within) and therefore an important part of the storytelling.

I think with the slight changes to the artwork here we really begin to see Kara's self confidence manifest physically. This would have continued on a curve, all through 12th Grade. By the end (and there was a definitive end planned) 18 year old Kara would have looked like an adult - particularly because you watched her grow up.

I guess what I'm saying is: It's a mistake to expect a character to be perfect right out the gate. Where do you go from perfect? Perfect makes for boring storytelling and boring reading.

Ideally we would have similar development with the emotional status of the character. And I think we do see that evolution just over the course of the 8th Grade mini-series. It was a trend intended to continue.

We would have seen some similar evolution for Belinda and Lena - for at least as long as they were around. And if that sounds vaguely sinister, it probably is. Or maybe it really isn't. Hard to say.

Anyway, that's some Cosmic Adventures 9th Grade stuff for you. Otherwise, Eric and I have been very busy working on new things. We will be making an announcement as to what exactly that might be at this years San Diego Comic Con.
