Chugging along, a little detour into the gritty streets of Gotham are coming though!!

The Forever Man is here stay.

My creative process is pretty simple, I sit down and start writing what comes to mind, the story is propelled by imagination and what my minds eye sees. There is a problem inherent with this type of creative process. My imagination is wacky...really wacky and sometimes it goes way off into left field where my typing fingers cannot follow! 

That said, I have to either stop for a bit, to ground myself or do something else and so we have Batman, my fave comic character and the one i'm most excited about writing. Its well underway, but patience is the greatest virtue involved with this stuff so we must all practice it!!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thought I'd leave a post to spread some more joy, have a wonderful week everyone!!

The centurion solves Christmas

The world was silent, not a sound, not even a mouse.
By the candle lights flitter did I glean the man’s visage, all wrinkled and grey.
 Covered head to toe in red and sashay, with a bag and a beard both too large to say.
My sword I did draw, with a swoosh and a slash, I let open his bag and discovered his stash.
A big bag of presents, this did not make sense!
I did seek a man, all portly and round, but how could it be that it be he!
With a glare and a spin, the man was upon me.
So with a swipe of my blade, the man he did fall.
Straight to the ground, beard and all.
Only then did I realize what I had done,
I’d just ruined Christmas,
For everyone.
So if you’re reading this now, I must apologize.
If you’re Christmas was as foul as mine!
But don’t let this story get you too down,
Remember that Christmas is special, made no less so by the loss of a man so red, portly and round!
Family, friends and memories abound!
For those things, surely you can’t have a frown!

We are hard at work! I have been knocking through a script, I'll leave a sample here for you to check out, and soon I'll post a couple of Bens sketches!! Its still very early on in the process and at some point down the road, WAY DOWN most likely, I'll bring it back up but just to put it in your minds now, I'm looking at doing a Kickstarter for this project. Once we have the finalized script and art, we will need support to get it actually put into book form. Not to mention if we arent capable of coloring and lettering the pages thats additional costs. 

Anyway! Thanks for reading here is a sample of the script!
