That's great. Yeah, I'm not worried about it. Just thought it would be cool if we could get what I (assume is all of our goals) invested. Personally, I don't want to be a forum jockey forever. To be clear, I personally want to be published in comics, lol. As I'm sure, all of us do.
Apparently I misread the first write off post for 6, @YoungDuke . I could've sworn you allowed us more than 10 pages. I may not even be able to participate because I'm probably going beyond 10 comic pages. But I'll definitely post it below, if everyone is cool with that when I'm done. I will still go by the rules of submission time- End of May.
I'm a huge fan of Spider-Man, and he is held dearly to my heart. He is one of the only connections I have with my Father, and it genuinely means a lot to me. So I totally want to do this right and give Spider-Man more than 10 pages...
I don't expect you to change rules just for me, and I really don't expect anyone to even read it. It's more of a personal goal to get this script completed. So Thank You for providing this prompt.
My dad owned the original issues 1-70, and it was the comic that really got him into comics. It was the character that he connected to the most because Spider-Man was demographically created for him. He was a Marvel guy, starting off with the Fantastic Four and some of X-Men before he "grew out of comics."
He would probably not approve of the direction I'm taking it, but it's just one way to honor the lore.
If anyone wants to know what happen to my Father's specific collection- When he moved out of my grandparents house for the first time, my grandmother donated all of his comics (without his consent) to a hospital of children with needs. He says, they either were puked on, shit on, or some janitor became a multi-millionaire. Mostly a joke from him, but he's rather pissed. There's nothing we can do about it. Hopefully, at best, it helped influence, inspire, and heal dying children that truly needed it. He still claims that the only reason that these books are worth this much is because "Mothers gave their son's comics..." story, lol.
@rebgardner I totally understand, and I believe it is strategic to be pragmatic. I'm not offended in any way.
