UPDATE:

Well, here's a sample from the first issue! Like I said, this is a comic I've been developing for many years now. What I mean is, it's a story that's been on my mind since my early days in high school and it's only been in recent years that I developed it more seriously.

After much trial and error, constant re-writes (I think I had about five intros re-written), I feel I finally have a intro that I can use to start this story.

Anyway, here's a sample from the first issue!

By the way, it is more like a manga series than a American comic, even though the storytelling will be like a hybrid of both.

Fuck yes I would!

As long as it's not like Blackhawk. Unless they get naked and accept that they're all gay.

I dont buy comics anymore. I guess the best thing you could do would be to digitally distribute the first issue to gain publicity.

I'm a comic junkie so I would give it a shot, but I'll warn you now if it's bad it'll be used as toilet paper.  Not by me though. My ass is too delicate for anything that rough.

I cut off about a foot of my hair a few months back.  So now I kind of look more like a Seattle alt-rock god rather than one of the swedish metal variety.

I thought you were against piracy. Nyaa

But this would explain how you get so many (non-wii) games!

Funny you mentioned digital distribution, that is exactly what I'm doing. Well, digitally publishing. It won't be a web comic. The goal is to generate enough buzz on the net (and local comic book stores) so that a bigger publisher can pick it up (hopefully). That's the long term goal.

And GG, just curious, but why don't you buy comics anymore?

Don't matter, as long as you buy 100 copies give them to everyone you know! LOL!

Sure. As long as they have nipples. If they don't, you'll have to draw some crude sketches of nipples and balls over the finished artwork, to make a special Steel Edition.

But, yeah, I'd be willing to support you even if I'm not into comics.

I used to buy tons, mainly Silver surfer, I had over 100 issues, all of Deathlok, some hulk and spiderman, loved the venom comics. Then there was too much to keep up with and Image started taking over with unfamiliar stuff.

I love the Infinity Gauntlet/crusade/war saga. I got some digital comics off ebay like every spiderman/silver surfer/thanos comic ever made.

Now I'm just out of the loop and would rather look back than forward. I would eventually delve into 400 issues of the X-men. If I had time. I dont.

Cool!

As for that special Steel Edition, would you settle for some sketches in the back of the comic instead? It's kind of a PG-13 book you know! Nyaa

I wouldn't pay for it, but if it were free I'd check a few issues out and see if I found it entertaining or not. I dunno if I (or most people) have the attention span to read entire comics, especially online. I think there is a lot more mass appeal for webcomics, or if you posted the series as one page per day/week.
