Justice Wing: Vilify 5, Part One

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

Justice Wing: Prologue

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

Interviewing Leather, Part Fourteen

This entry is part 14 of 14 in the series z⎇998JW The Original Interviewing Leather (out of continuity)

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

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Three

This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

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

Interviewing Leather, Part Thirteen

This entry is part 13 of 14 in the series z⎇998JW The Original Interviewing Leather (out of continuity)

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

Interviewing Leather, Part Twelve

This entry is part 12 of 14 in the series z⎇998JW The Original Interviewing Leather (out of continuity)

This story has been revised! The revised Part 12 can be found under Interviewing Leather Revised #9. This version is from alternate universe ⎇998JW and is not in continuity with the Justice Wing stories. The revised version is the recommended version. Thanks! A week and a half wait. And (with the possible exception of the… Continue reading Interviewing Leather, Part Twelve

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Two

This entry is part 5 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

I'm about halfway through part eleven of "Interviewing Leather." It seemed wise not to push to get it done and possibly compromise what may be one of the more engaging bits (or not be, depending on how well it goes, of course). On the other hand, it certainly can go up on Thursday without any… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Two

The Home Front: Homecoming Part One

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

Leather, sadly, will have to wait until Thursday, or even to next week. There was just no writing time...well, at all since last Thursday. None. Not a jot. Which isn't normal for me, but it's start of school. And you know... start of school. So, we move on to the last of the Home Front… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part One

The Home Front: Diamond in the Rough

This entry is part 7 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

One of my favorite story drivers, bar none, is The Big Change. The Big Change is exactly what it sounds like. Something happens to change the world, change society, change the way things have always been done, and then everyone has to deal with it. Theftworld and Trigger Man both deal with the same Big… Continue reading The Home Front: Diamond in the Rough

The Home Front: Spycracker and Torpedo

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

This is the second Home Front story, though it was the first I wrote. I hadn't submitted it to Greg at Mythic Heroes yet, mind, though I was going to eventually. The Home Front got its start, more directly than almost anything else I'm putting on here, in Superguy. Superguy, for those of you unfamiliar… Continue reading The Home Front: Spycracker and Torpedo
