I've been fleshing out all my comics a lot more, and it's been both the most horrid and most amazing experience on Earth. It's also brought two possible issues to mind.
The first is that, while I've ironed out all the details, if you zoom out too far, the canon for my comics is bloody confusing. If you read them all, I've explained every damned detail. But when you go out too much...Well, I'll show you the problem.
DAEMON NITERIS: mutagenic virus
REBIRTH: alien invasion
In chronological order from top to bottom, earliest to latest. I've got all the details worked out, and it all fits within a sci-fi theme, but it's pretty difficult to explain, and likely more difficult to understand. Hell, four of these directly involve extraterrestrials on some level. So, first question: should I leave them as-is so I don't mess with the continuity, or should I consider separating them a bit?
My main character, Jack. He peaks a bit early in the comics; he gains his full powers in the first graphic novel, and never really improves until he has a hulk-esque breakdown and kills a bunch of people. Anyhow, I was thinking about totally stripping him of his main power until later. His main power, by the way, is transforming his arm into a muscular bulk of tendrils, akin to Wesker's endgame appearance (but without plane shrapnel, to clarify). Since all his powers revolve around altering his structure on a cellular level, something that complex could be difficult, so maybe he would have to just start off with minor enhancements, like strength and healing.
But I don't know whether or not I should do either of these.
Anyways, I know most of you aren't familiar with my comics, especially after the changes I've made, but I would greatly appreciate the feedback from those of you who are. The main change is that everything's a lot more level. I started this when I was like thirteen, and my hormones have balanced out a great deal, so the story won't constantly shift tones, such as Jack ranging from total dick to unstable comedian. I don't know what was wrong with me, but even then I was uncomfortable with the hectic nature of my comics.
Oh, and one last thing, for all of you who have bothered reading this whole thing. I'm almost done with a script, and I'm considering sending it in to apply for a job, but it might fair better if it was illustrated. I can draw, but not with consistency, and I so far have not been fond of the artistic style of the few people who offered to help. Anyone who would consider collaborating, contact me, and I'll look through your online portfolio. You'd get to see my script after signing an agreement on my full ownership of story content, characters, and the like, and the partnership would be fully noncommittal. I'd probably just ask you to do a few pages at first to see if your art style works with the content.
Thank you for reading this, and hopefully responding.
