The story of Justice Wing begins.
The story of Lady Velvet and others at Vilify 5 continues with the second of our remastered episodes, as the Con goes into Saturday and into depth, all at the same time. Part 2 Saturday — 9:06 am Conventions ran on adrenalin and enthusiasm, but first thing in the morning, even on Saturday, they ran on caffeine.… Continue reading Vilify 5 Remastered #2
“I keep hearing people talk about how Superman’s the best super hero or Batman’s better or how great Wonder Woman or Oracle is — and they compare their muscles or their powers or their smarts like it all came down to the stats printed on the back of the cards their action figures came on.”… Continue reading Random Thursday Drabble: What makes a hero?
So we had a migration one day, and this is where we ended up... and all kinds of navigation had to be left behind -- and this was one of them. But you don't care. You just want the Arrival Page for Interviewing Leather. For whatever reason, the paid version of WordPress hates redirecting pages,… Continue reading Justice Wing: Interviewing Leather — the Arrival Page
Part two of Interviewing Trey, and the first part where we really get to know the Jack O'Knaves. For those who've read Interviewing Leather, there's one significant difference that will become apparent in this post. Leather was a thief, pure and simple. She didn't just avoid killing, she went out of her way to not… Continue reading Interviewing Trey #2
So, every so often things don't work out quite as you expected them to. That's not too surprising at this point. When you're a writer, sometimes the stories take unexpected turns. Which is what happened to me this time. You see, I finished the Prosperina myth, and figured I was going back into normal production.… Continue reading Justice Wing: Legacies of the Past
It's always interesting to go from "the plan" to the execution. Scenes you think will be long and drawn out turn out to be perfunctory. Scenes you figured wouldn't go anywhere will recast your series in an entirely new light. The characters in your notes come to life and start making noises at you. Sometimes,… Continue reading JW: Vilify 5, Part 2
One of the interesting things about writing something like Justice Wing is the kind of story you get to write. It's hard to convince a publisher to let you write a comic book about this guy who interviews a supervillain for a week, with very little in the way of action scenes, for example. Not… Continue reading Justice Wing: Vilify 5, Part One
As promised, this is the first official Justice Wing post, appropriately named "Prologue." It sets up a few things, gives you some better idea of who the players are and how long they've been at this, and... well, gives us something to go from. Which is, in the end, what a prologue is supposed to… Continue reading Justice Wing: Prologue
And this is it. The conclusion of "Interviewing Leather." And I have to admit, I feel pretty good about it. Todd Chapman, in the story, is writing an article called 'Interviewing Leather.' The subject of that article is the so-named supervillain Leather, who he has been hired to interview. But the novella/serial "Interviewing Leather," by… Continue reading Interviewing Leather, Part Fourteen
A bit late, but here's the third part of "Homecoming," here in The Home Front. This particular file got corrupted, so I didn't have any choice but to rewrite about half of it, which put things off a bit. And here we are! Of course, it occurs to me that Greg Fishbone, my former editor,… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Three
Part thirteen of "Interviewing Leather." This is, if anything, denouement and epilogue, and a chance for some voices on the other side of the fence to chime in on a few of the points Leather herself made. It also sets up the last part, which should come out next week. God knows what we'll replace… Continue reading Interviewing Leather, Part Thirteen
