The Activist is back in an issue where the old is new again thanks to Nick Nall.
We “re-did” Oily Shit. I really wanted Nick to draw the story so that it is not just my version.
There you go!
This week, you get a little tease.
Nick is working hard on the next issue and trying some new things and I am oh so excited.
Before I am knee deep into word balloons, I thought I’d share a little teaser and show you how Nick brings the script to life.
Excert from the OILY SHIT Script- Page 3
3.2. The AC grabs onto a board member (Cynthia CARROLL) by the collar as BOOGIE blinds her from behind. A tentacle appears behind the AC.
3.3. The tentacle has grabbed the AC by his feet and is pulling him from behind while he is still holding onto CARROLL’s collar. The AC is being stretched a bit between the two and starts freaking out.
AC:What the heeeeeeell???
3.4. Close on a very surprised AC. He is holding the now torn suit as the tentacle wraps itself around him.
When I first started writing Comic Books, I had a hard time finding an artist. I was deluted enough that I thought I could find someone who would draw my stories for free. I know better now. At the time, I decided to make my own comic in Photoshop and the Activist #1 “Oily Shit” was born.
It was a great learning experience and my web project for The Graphic Novel Writing Class I took at Portland State University with Brian Michael Bendis. “Oily Shit” got an A.
