How do I do it? It’s not how I do it. It’s how I get it done.
And it’s a done deal, when my deeds get done.
I am Magnus. I am Great. I am one of the best ever. I will continue to prove it with my works.
I am Parvus. I am Small. I am unnamed and unknown. I am yet to surface.
These are just the bubbles floating up.
Should I lie or do you want to know the truth? Maybe I should lie with the truth so that you don’t know where the truth lies. The truth. There is nothing more important yet nothing more elusive.There are many truths but some truths are more true then others. Truth is elastic, before Galileo (Copernicus really) the world was the center of the universe. Nowadays it’s just one of the smaller planets rotating around a small insignificant sun, just one of many of billions of other suns.
Young Justice - My Young Justice stories are quite funny. Young Justice was a comic that was published by DC comic between 1997 and 2003. Written by Peter David and drawn primary by Todd Naulk for its entire run of 55 issues it developed an intense fan base for its unusual style. As opposed to being a series about people with super powers it is more a story of a group of normal teens and the interrelation they have as friends put into the context of a science fiction fantasy universe. The teens are all average teens yet they come from all social cliques. Imagine the Breakfast Club with super powers. It provided its audience with lighthearted humorous adventure tales suitable for both youthful and adult readers. My stories keep with this format and I’m sure compete with the very high caliber of stories in this late series. These stories were all written over five years ago and show my tremendous natural talent even though I was ostensibly a beginner at the time.
Back in the early nineties the Batman animated series was launched. This Emmy award winning cartoon took a serious and gritty look at the Dark Knight without being as dark as the Tim Burton movies. A comic launched to support the series emulated the feel and tone of the series and did something all too rare in comics, they used the art to tell the story without overusing captions or dialog. When the new Batgirl was introduced in the Batman Comics the writer Kelley Puckett used the same style he had used in the earlier Batman comics. This amazing comic did everything right, using the amazing visual power of the comic medium, to express things that cannot be expressed as well or as powerfully in words. This is my attempt to write a silent comic, to use pictures to tell the story in its entirety.
Batgirl - a comic book launched at the start of the millennium changed the way I thought about visual storytelling. The team of Kelley Puckett (writer) and Damien Scott (drawer) put together an intense emotive action comic that used the prime strength of the comic medium the ability to freeze frame intense physical action and reaction but also intense emotional action and reaction.
Daredevil - Before he tackles the Batman mythos the comic great Frank Miller scribed the adventures of Daredevil, the blind attorney. While the approach Miller took revolutionized the way comics were written, the stories themselves were revolutionary. This tale attempts to compete with the very best Frank Miller stories.
The Birds of Prey - was a unique series that focused on the adventures of a pair of non super powered women, one of them in a wheelchair. This series turns the tables on the male dominated brute strength and firepower action heroes, showing that there are few things as dangerous as a strong and intelligent woman, except maybe two women.
Back in the last nineties a television show was launched featuring a comic book style heroine called Buffy; the Vampire Slayer.Attracting a sophisticated yet young audience the show broke many television boundaries and featured smart writing with deep characterization. A spin off was launched soon after following the solo adventures of one of the main character’s Angel. This Angel story catches up with the gang in season five with another Buffy supporting character, Spike, providing his wit to the dialog. I’ve tried to make this story stand up with the very best single stories that don’t tie in directly with the overall plot for the season.
Clone Wars - This is a story meant for the new format 100 page comic books that accompany the new animated Clone Wars Series. It’s one of the few new works that I’ve decided to post as to a comparison not to show that I’ve gotten much better but to show that I’ve gotten much faster. All told the whole Clone Wars story was completed in two days from inception to completion working on it only in the evenings.
