My Forthcoming Comic - The Ember War

Post by otomo »

I'm writing a graphic novel adaptation of Richard Fox's bestselling military science fiction, The Ember War (which is really good action sci-fi - alien invasion space marine stuff). I've done some comics in the past as a web comic but this is the first where I've been signed for real professional work. The artist is NOT ANNOUNCED yet so please keep this to the board for now. :) I'm just too excited and have to share somewhere. Pencils for the first issue are done and here's a couple of the preview pages.

My super-successfully crowdfunded debut comic, Flying Sparks: https://www.amazon.com/Flying-Sparks-Jo ... 9527303419 is now up on Amazon! The story of a hero and villain dating under their secret identities. Worlds collide!

congrats homie! super excited for you.

I know you're excited and want to share your success but don't *SQUEE* it up. I've heard of people losing gigs doing this kind of stuff. you know your situation better than me. i'm just sharing a word of caution.


keep writing. keep succeeding. :high-five:

Just saw this today - congrats man, looks really cool! I want to know when this comes out so I can check it out.

I’ll echo ilzuccone’s warning as a fellow (semi) pro artist though - hopefully you don’t get in *SQUEE* for sharing early!
