The Raw Bones

Next March! That's when my book, All Star, will be coming out from NBM Comicslit.

And the work started in earnest two years ago, right after the 2011 M.I.C.E. I'm not much for scripts, so instead I just panel out six panel grids in my sketchbook and fill them up. The first draft was about 200 pages. Some ever-patient friends read it and gave me feedback (thankyouthankyouthankyou). Another 80 pages were drawn based on that feedback. All 280 pages went into this binder, which became the bible for All Star.

The notes on this page were written by Colleen AF Venable. In case you can't read them, the upper corner says, "Opening boring. Needs excitement, if you can't grab them in the first pages, you lose them."

Which is true.

Why do I think "Comicslit" may benefit from an internal capital letter?

You are absolutely correct, and that is my mistake! It is NBM ComicsLit.
