Like a lot of people here, I was inspired by Mark Millar’s Millarworld Annual short story contest. Even though my story wasn’t chosen for the annual, I saw the benefit of writing short stories and began researching going down that road.
Basically, that meant I bought two of 2000AD’s Future Shocks books and set about to write my own. So, I did write a handful of stories in the Future Shocks template and I submitted the scripts to 2000AD. I never heard back from them but I thought the stories were decent enough to pursue getting them produced myself.
So, I put an ad on this very forum looking for an artist but I only got two responses. Luckily one of them turned out to be a very talented artist by the name of Olan Orig. My script was fairly detailed but Olan added his own details to each panel and the characters that really helped to flesh-out the world of this simple story. Not only that but he finished ahead of schedule. So, if anyone is looking for a quality, dependable artist, give him a shout.
Anyway, enough of my rant. I now present to you a short tale called, “Love Conquers All.”
Any critiques or questions are welcome. Does it make sense? Can you follow the story? Is it stupid? Have at it, boys and girls.
