PROJECT: War Intelligence!


#1

Hey y’all!

My name is Deniz Camp. A few of you may remember me as an active poster here in earlier days, and it’s always wonderful to see some familiar faces!

Some time ago I posted a short comic I wrote and co-created with the great Federico De Luca & ET Dollman, MURDER ONE (http://imgur.com/a/KaK4m) and got some really kind feedback.

I’ve written more since, all of which are in progress, but right now I’m here to talk about a project I’ve been working on for literal years. It’s a short, 16 page Science Fiction story called WAR INTELLIGENCE. It’s penciled by Dario Duluoz, one of the best artists I’ve had the privilege to work with, and one of my best friends in the comics world. It’s inked by Fabio Frangione, under Dario’s careful supervision. It is currently being lettered by ET Dollman, a writer and artist in his own right. And it’s a thing of beauty.

We’re coming close to the finish line, at least insofar as anyone is every finished with art, and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it.

Here are some early inked pages.

That was fantastic!!! I love the detail work in the art. I am very intrigued to learn more of the story.


#3

Thank you so much Todd! I’ll be posting more pages over the next couple of days, including some lettered ones! I hope you dig the writing as much as you do the art.

Honest Disclaimer: The art is much better than the writing. :slight_smile:

I’m also continuing to update this IMGUR with stuff, so you can always check there:

This looks excellent Deniz. More please. :blush:


#6

Thanks Dave!

More coming for sure. :slight_smile:


#7

Great design work on the pages. Makes it stand out from the crowd.


#8

Gar!

Yeah, Dario actually learned how to do that in the process of doing these pages. He’s always working with new mediums and on new techniques. The latter pages, and the final lettered pages, will have some cool innovations too. My favorite page of the story is still to come, and I think it’ll blow y’all away.


#9

Good to see ya, Deniz! The art is sweet, but waiting for the words!

And I do wish I’d quit hitting ~ when I mean !


#10

Good to see you too, Miqque!

I’ll be posting a few more pages monday, then some words later in the week! I hope you’ll dig 'em all!


#11

Hey guys!

Four more beautiful pages from WAR INTELLIGENCE, including my favorite two pages spread of the bunch!
I hope you dig them as much as I do!

Hey guys!

I’m back with a lettered preview of the first 5 pages! Letters were done by the AMAZING ET Dollman, and I think he murdered it.

I wish I had some more intelligent comments than “it looks incredible”, but, well, it looks incredible :smile:


#14

David! It’s your comment that is incredible, and has made my day!

Thanks so much!


#15

So what are your plans for this? Pitch it to Image? Kickstart it? Or are you content to circulate it on line for people to marvel at for free?


#16

David!

This is just a short (17 pages), and one that is highly designed, so I think options are fairly limited. I’ll be submitting it to Dark Horse and to Heavy Metal, since they have spaces for short projects like this. There are a couple of VERY small comics publishers who have expressed interest in publishing physical copies and selling them at cons, and worst comes to worst I’ll self publish it and sell it at cons, as well as putting it on comixology submit for 99 cents or something.

The artist and I, Dario, are already working on another, longer form project together (thematically, but not directly, related) and so, at the very worst, I figure this will be a proof of creative team.

I’ve already printed off some ashcan copies and handed them out to Shelly Bond (head of Vertigo) and Neil Gaiman, and plan on sending out PDFs to some of my acquaintances in the industry, so please keep your fingers crossed for Dario and me!

A little fun background on this sequence.

The original script for this short was 8 pages; the entire section that I’ve posted here was made up wholesale by the artist, Dario, because he was compelled to. I then went and wrote the text in response to it, hopefully fitting it in nicely with the original script.

Kind of a Marvel Method style thing. It was a lot of fun – not necessarily perfect for every kind of collaboration, but kind of guerilla comic-ing.You’ll have to tell me how it works, when it’s all posted.

Dario is an amazing collaborator and talent.

Hey hey!
I’m back with four more beautifully lettered pages. Letters done by ET Dollman.

I hope you dig ‘em, and please tell me what you think even if you don’t!
