That comic sounds cool. If it is focused on identity than I bet there will be great characters. So it will be a historical peice sort of?
Alright, cool.

Vertigo published Preacher by Garth Ennis, which is far as I know the most popular adult comic ever. It's good, but I think very much overrated. I don't think Ennis is as good with dialogue as a lot of people think, a lot of the weirder parts of it seem forced, too. Still, it's a very good read. And it has an Irish vampire in it (No surprise, Ennis is from Belfast). I don't buy comics regularly, mainly due to money restrictions, but check out any Scalped at your comics store. Pretty sure they'll have them - should give you a good taste of what you can expect from the publisher, though I think it's far above the average.

I'm undecided with exactly how historical the piece will be. I want to make the appearances of the characters accurate, at least - but it's not like they'll be speaking Latin or anything. I don't think any historical persona - at least not famous ones - will be main characters, and it won't include any major battles from the time, just skirmishes that affect the characters (the Iberians were the first people to use guerrilla warfare). I was considering writing about Viratho, an ancient general from what is now Portugal - but I wanted to write my own story instead, and I didn't want to twist the truth too much (300 is an example here).

Tori Amos is freaking awesome, and she's totally taking over my brain. Every song is weirder than the last.

Seriously, any song that contains the words "Colonel dirtyfishydishcloth" wins in my book.

I'll look for Scalped. Sounds interesting.

I would read your comic. It is probably best to stay away from history. I think a look at guerrilla warfare would be interesting considering today's world. Good luck.

This is my favorite Tori Amos performance. She goes mad.

Yeah, I don't want it to only appeal to history nerds. But I want it to still interest them, while also bringing in other readers. I think the time the comic is set in is a good one that modern readers should hopefully relate to - we even saw the first major economic depression there not too far earlier, due to the extensive mining in Spain as performed by the Romans and Carthaginians. I just don't want to make it a story that could be done anywhere else, but with falcatas. I want it to be unique.

I was thinking the same.

I sketch rough comics with a biro before I go to bed, working with layouts and dialogue even if the plot is shit. I love the comic medium, but I think it still only appeals to certain types of people. It needs to reach more.

But hey, perhaps if we're all making comics, it's a good sign for the future. It definitely needs to reach more people. My comics are just more detailed and complex versions of my U2 cartoons, but for REAL artists, it's an incredible medium, and for me, it's just a lot of fun. I mostly love writing scripts, but animating can be fun too.

I think great characters and mythologies appeal to tons of people in some form or another. I hope my comics inspire people to think about their own lives and find something to believe in. I hope my writing makes people see their worth no matter how different or alien they may be.
