Looks amazing. I reckon you're pretty pleased.

What social media, apart from FB? Just curious. That's a  good following so far.


Thanks, Libby, very pleased for sure.

I have accounts on Instagram and Twitter for the comic as well, I do focus most of my attention on Facebook though because I'm most familiar with it. Never had Instagram or Twitter before the comic. My total audience across all three is about 15000, but there is probably some crossover.

Whoa, that's awesome! Looks pretty cool, Dave.

PIA -- the artwork looks amazing. Never thought to include something like that in a pitch.

I wrote a script like 12 years ago (it's still posted on here -- not my best written work, though not bad) called "Machine Gun Symphony" that I really wanted to turn into a graphic novel -- the budget, since it's a period piece sorta, was pretty big for a film -- and, looking back, it wasn't my greatest work. But it might be something I'd consider looking into.

As for side projects, of course I want to get "Honey Mustard" off the ground (though it's on Simply Scripts -- and not a great time to pitch, I'm finding out). Then I have my latest feature film, "Rage" that finished post, which I feel great about. But still looking at sales agents and distribution companies as of now (DM me to find out more). That script I was hired to write, though I think my "voice" is still distinct in that one despite the film being a slight departure for me in terms of maturity.

I am in the pre-natal stages of the next screenplay, which will be my 3rd feature, working with the same producers and director of "Rage". Though I can't really say much else about it as there isn't much to say just yet.

I missed your post in February with the proof copies - awesome covers. Who are you using for the print copies? I've been kicking around the thought of publishing an anthology of my comics and I checked out blurb.com (Hyper Epics uses them for his print anthologies). They do great work and fairly inexpensive.

With all your social media connections for marketing, how are you going to actually sell them?

Love your avatars. Did I see that one or both of your artists had done some work for Marvel?

Good luck, my friend!

Actually that is Warren's artwork - although I wouldn't mind taking credit for it. in a pitch.

It does address an issue I haven't quite wrapped my arms around yet. What to do with the scripts in the bin?

I now have 10 features and just started making notes for the next one (A Hooker - Nun road trip comedy based on a short I wrote).  Every time I get on it in the back of my head those other 10 scripts percolate.  Should I spend my time on the next one or should I continue to re-write the old ones to try to get them better? It's hard - because there comes a time when one gets bored with their own work.

Yesterday I started to write but decided it was time to finally get rid of my - I'm sure I will fit into these again one-day clothes.  It was amazing how many there were.

Lol sorry, I meant Warren.

If you ever have downtime and you feel the old script still has potential years later, sometimes it's worth going over it again. I know the Coen Brothers did that with "Miller's Crossing", although that was an unfinished work. I've written 25 features and most of them are shit or not really viable ideas (a lot of those written before I started getting my footing)... but I do find  myself taking elements from my older scripts, at least the best parts of those old scripts, and recycling them to create something new. Or just using them for small parts of a newer script.

Yeah - I think it's a triage situation.

I have three scripts that have done really well in contests.  I'll probably keep polishing those. One I think I am going to convert into a Christmas theme.

I have three scripts I don't give a shit about anymore.

Four that I not sure of - one where I am going to look for a co-writer as I think I have the bones of a story but am too old to get the technology right.

Probably the best course is to write new - fix old as I get writers block on new

Good luck, my friend!


So I'm using a local comic book printer in Sydney called comic books on demand, their work is top notch, after a few proofs, I decided on 113gsm satin coated paper and a 250gsm gloss celloglaze cover. It looks and feels fantastic.

You should definitely do it, doing comics is just a different kind of satisfaction (as you know), I'd encourage anyone to give it a go it they have the spare $$$.

So I think my audience is around 20 000 now. I'll launch on Kickstarter then advertise directly to my audience, I'll get the usual Kickstarter traffic, and post in a ton of Facebook comic book pages.

So Chris Ivy used to be a Marvel and DC artist, and Simone D'Armini has made his debut with Marvel on a issue of She-Hulk. Both of them are variant cover artists for the comic.

Thanks, mate.
