Hello Internet. Glad we could be together again.
So awhile ago, a friend and I started making a comic. It was entitled, "What The...", and it was in the genre of horror. Now, I'm not a huge fan of horror comics, but nonetheless I obliged and went along with the idea.
As the project came to fruition, more and more became confusing to me. I would only get a couple pages at a time, and the pages I did get, things seemed to be happening at random. In fact, I had to lie and say I had pages done just so I could possibly see what was coming up next so that I may foreshadow some things in my artwork, and yet, it still didn't make that much of a difference. Now don't get me wrong, I think the work I did do on this project was some of the best comic illustration I've ever done. But alas, the project fell apart. Not getting pages in to me was a big thing, and the fact of, even when I did ask this person what's going on in the story, I couldn't even get an answer. It seemed that everything was being made up as it went along.
Then came the part of, instead of having this be a single issue (which is what we first discussed) it was now going to be an entire trade paperback. Maybe even around 100 pages he or she said. That's when I was like, okay, enough. I'm not going to be wasting my nights and weekends on a project that I have NO idea where it's going, and also one that is going to be 100+ pages that I fully pencil, ink, and color, to get nothing out of it but carpel tunnel.
All of this came to a head and I left the project behind. I have since met with this person on several occasions, and they bring up that they'd wished we could have finished "What The...". Well tough titties. I need more stability than that ol' chum.
The one thing that's good about it, is that I DO have these pages of original artwork to show you. And here they are. I have a cover that's colored, and the rest are interior pages. The last 2 I have up there would have been a double page spread. I did run out of ink when I was doing this, so that's also another reason the project got scrapped. Can you guess where it happened?
Well that's what I have for you this day. The comic that never happened. Now if I can just get motivated to get mine off the ground I would be a happy camper.
