Working on a one-off British comic "Powerless: Some Kind of Hero"


#1

Hello everyone,

I am writing and drawing “Powerless: Some Kind of Hero”, a one-off 24-page full colour superhero comic. I’m currently doing a Kickstarter for the printing costs, but this isn’t an advert, so I’ll just pop the link down at the bottom of this post if you’re interested.

The comic is based on the world and characters from my “Powerless” series of self-published novels. I intended to write a short story set between books 2 and 3, but had always wanted to tackle a comic book, so in a moment of madness I decided to turn it into one!

I have only 4 pages left to fully colour before I tackle the lettering (yep, I’m doing everything myself) and hope to have it ready for printing in March. Here is some finished art (barring a final polish pass), and I would love your feedback and thoughts on it.

Thanks,
Tony.

Just to let you know there are 7 days to go on the Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1ZGtZJp
I’ve also done an update today showing the progress of page 1 from sketch to finished, lettered page: https://t.co/6H3ChvDYdc
The whole comic is drawn and lettered now, and I am waiting on an edit before I get a proof copy sent to me - it’s getting exciting!

Tony.
