If you haven't checked us out yet, please please please visit our Kickstarter page, just hit the link below or any of the images around here, my friends.
We are working really hard to go above and beyond with issue #1 as every extra $ we make on this Kickstarter will be used towards issue #2. Our next Stretch Goal is a nice add-on for every backer getting a physical copy of the comic, we are doing a Mini-Print with the artwork below by DC Comics artists Geraldo Borges & Juan Fernandez.
For those that still don't know what this comic is about, here's the rundown. The Few and Cursed is a new comic series I wrote and created with artist Fabiano Neves. It is what I like to call a post-apocalyptic western set in an alternate 1910 where most of the water on the planet has been gone for seventy years.
Without water, civilization just halted any progress and stayed pretty much the same... with the exception of the monsters, black magic and curses that consequently showed up. And that's where our main character comes in, to balance the scale a little bit.
Like the good ol' westerns, we are introduced to a nameless character, the Redhead, one of very few Curse Chasers in the world.
If that looks like your brand of whiskey, come visit us at our Kickstarter page at www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… and be among the very first to own a copy of issue #1!

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.
A close up has a very different desired effect than a wide shot for instance, and they each communicate something specific to your readers. So always keep in mind, "What do I want to communicate wi
