Tres Komikeros 34

With EJ never being around when Alex is, and vice versa, John is beginning to think the other two komikeros are actually (dramatic pause) THE SAME PERSON!  Keep listening to Tres Komikeros to get to the bottom of this chilling mystery.

Oh also we read some comics: Blackest Night #5, Image United #1, and New Avengers #59.  After an audience review and a round of quick shots, the boys played a healthy game of thumb warfare.

Lastly, a sensitive topic is tackled in this week’s panel discussion — Comic Book Elitism.  Yeah.

You know who you are.

EJ Work Journal 1: Velocivolver

In the very wild west where human and dinosaur co-exist, a band of outlaw Scaleys seek to pillage the Sapien town of Fossilrock. One raptor raised by an old codger stands in their way.  His name… is Tex. Ughhh..

Ye Ol’ Marvel might give you geek herds out there some intro like this on one of their books.  I probably won’t (If by some miracle it gets published) put that on the first page, but in a nutshell that’s what I’m working on at the moment.  Every few days or so I intend to share with you all a little bit of the world that I am creating and the characters that shoot themselves in it.  And what a lot of shooting there will be… at some point.

I hope to create a story so complex, so mind bendingly implausible, that the very first pages will make you go… “Huwhatth??!!”  I kid, nothing approaching Batman RIP absurdity here (I apologize to Morrison fans, I love him too… just like I love the black sheep in our family. Wait… that’s me…), just pure adult fun.  How that’ll happen, well I really don’t know, I just make this crap up as I go.  Every night a little bit of the puzzle falls into place and I go, “I am genius man.”  Okay, so I missed a few grammar classes.  Doesn’t mean I won’t be an awesome writers, write?

Okay, moving on…

So, Velocivolver.  Frankly, John and I came up with the title first before anything else and I was, like, “Whoa maaan, awesooome name!”  Originally it was Velocivolver Tex, but we decided to streamline it.  After I told another good friend about the concept and he called me a moron, I decided that was a good sign to push ahead with it.  ‘Cause seriously, no other idiot is gonna do this ol’ west tale in another planet/dimension with a Dinotopian flavor.  Just us three.  Go figure.

So I will write the cute little bouncin’ tumbleweed of a tale, John and Alex will do concept art, and all three of us will be the underdogs that… um, well, that’s up to you now, isn’t it?

Again, like I said earlier, I want to fill you guys in bit by bit on the goings-on of my internal clockwork by posting li’l tidbits about the story here and there and the amateur process I use to harvest my creativity. The next log will focus on an introduction of Fossilrock and the world around it and after that, the characters — starting with, and I am so excited, the villains!  So stay stay tuned, geek herds, and herdettes (seriously need to take grammar classes) and we will bring you a fantasy of derring do and clawin’ gun action, a sad comedic drunken bar-room saloon brawl straight from the minds and hearts of people just like you.  Because seriously, we love you.  Now pay up, John.
