My big graphic novel that no one knows about. [May. 15th, 2007|05:57 pm]

So a while back I wrote a 3-part graphic novel series called "Alien Circus" for Platinum Studios that was beautifully illustrated by Luke Weber. It was a big space aventure series that mixed Hamlet with Marsupilami and was a lot of fun to work on. I ended up developing a whole universe complete with tons of creatures, planets, history and plots for potential spinoffs.

At some point Platinum decided to change the name to The Adventures of Tymm and register a domain name for it. But as far as I know they have no plans to actually release it in print.

But I recently found out from a friend that they changed the name back to Alien Circus and it is being serialized on Drunkduck.com (yay!) without any credits for the people who worked on it (boo!)

I have no idea if they'll serialize the whole thing or not! I'm hoping so, just because it would be nice for the work to finally get seen, if not read (the lettering is hard to read at the current size--which seems easily fixed by cropping the white around the pages and running them a bit bigger.)

But I guess maybe if a lot of people read it and like it, someone might want to release it in print some day??

These are are the Rosencrantz & Guildenstern inspired characters who are hired to destroy the prince (who is still just and egg when the story begins)
