Brazilian Release was a total success!!
Today marks the last day of the Brazilian Kickstarter campaign (we got a few hours left yet) and it was an absolute success with the Lost Kids raising what was needed to fund the first print run + every single extended goal I had proposed!
Along with their Hard Cover books fully translated into Portuguese, every backer will also receive prints exclusively done for the Kickstarter campaign plus an extra 28 pages chronicling the Lost Kids from its' conception, the original idea written on a napkin to its' release.
The International and US Release
Still waiting to hear back from Comixology with an Official Release Date, should be anytime now, most likely in November. From what I know, they are converting the original comic book PDFs to their digital format and Guided View.
With the success of the Brazilian Kickstarter, I wonder if we would be able to do something similar in the US and work hard to give the reades a hard copy Lost Kids book.

How to Write Your Own Comic
Finally I got some time to sit down and work on a new article. This one is about breaking up your story in panels and how that is a collaborative effort between the writer and artist since it's key to the narrative of the book.

Writing 302: Action in PanelsYou may think this is solely up to the illustrator of the book but in fact it's actually a shared responsibility between writers and pencillers.
Camera Angles and Storytelling through Panels
As a writer it's your job to define the pacing and flow of the page and how your story will reach the readers. The artist's job is to take those directions, execute them as best as he can and apply his vision on top of the writer's. It is a collaborative effort and that's why writers and artists have to keep a constant communication.
Drawing a pin-up is one thing, telling a story through pictures is something else entirely. All your choices have weight and they should mean something, you should be very conscious of every single decision you take as an artist/writer when working on a comic book.
