Finally 50

No, not fifty years old, but fifty stories! It came about thusly: A couple years back I wrote a script for the first issue of a comic book series I was creating called Unity. Unity #1 was story number thirty-one for me. Anyway, I shopped the script around to a couple of places with no luck and then I was stuck, because other publishers wanted to see a whole comic book with art and the whole thing, not just a script. I didn’t know any artists and I didn’t want to go out of my way to meet any, so that was that. Fast forward to last week. I was hanging out with my comic shop owning compadre, Capt. Joel at Big Dog Comics and he sez he’s got artists coming down for an event, so I sez, if I give you my script will you show it to ‘em? So he sez, he sez, sure.

So I figured, I had enough notes for issue two and a couple days to work on it, so I write a few scenes and viola, I’ve got Unity #2 and story number fifty. Nifty!

I think there was already a comic called Unity, so if I’m right, I’ll have to find myself a new title, but such is life.
