Two ideas for bobaswright (and anyone else looking for an artist):
- forums (like this one, but in particular Mark Millar's and Digital Webbing) often have places specifically for matching up artists and writers
- try doing it a different way first. ie: take photos of Lego figures, use royalty free clip art, cut and paste panels from Wally Wood's 22 Comic Panels That Always Work (http://joeljohnson.com/archives/2006..._woods_22.html)
The reason I say the second one is that you're probably going to have to work a lot harder as a writer to convince people to draw for you. No judgement on anyone's ability as a writer, but drawing is hard and takes a long time, and if you're not going to pay the person then it can be a big commitment.
If you can show someone that your writing is amazing, even when it's put together using clip art, then it's going to be an easier sell.
Good luck with it!
have a couple-few new original ideas i hope to find room for in the coming year.
matt, the last iron man issue kicked ass in all ways.
other than his appearance in acts of vengence, i've only read your version of mandarin (he just wasn't around much when i was a kid reading iron man), which i've loved. what mandarin reading would you reccomend to get a feel for that character, or else what appearances by him did you take your inspiration from?
Just a real quick follow up. On Thanksgiving night I caught up on Gula and Avaritia. I loved them. Seriously, Casanova has been added to my pull list. Really dug it, thanks for helping me get over my self imposed ridiculous hurdle.
Also, I'm really excited to pick up Defenders tonight.
Thanks for the great comics.
Loved the preview of Defenders. Will pick it up tomorrow. Always been a Doc Strange fan so it will be interesting to see what you do with him.
Is your Doc Strange a bit of a dandy or just a little full of himself? The other possibility is that he's a bit of a magic nerd. I actually know some magic nerds (pals) who've used the word "'tis" in their act. In fact, they still do. It is said very matter of factly, without humor.
Hey Matt, Just wanted to say Defenders was awesome today, can see why it's been coined "Casanova Avengers" .
I loved the phrases at the bottom of the pages, are those going to be in future issues?
Your work is a constant source of inspiration to me as a writer, thanks so much.
