After posting my latest blog “WRITERS ARE NOT A DIME A DOZEN…GOOD ONES ANYWAY…” I got to thinking, actually it got me motivated to search for someone to partner with on my comic book project, which would be to turn my current novel available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble titled “The First” into a comic book.
I have been to New York Comic Con 2013 and not met with much success, Deviant Art, and other sites.
Some artists express interest, but due to time frame on other projects can’t commit, and some asked to be paid up front, which I currently can’t do, and then negotiations went dead in the water.
So let me start off with what this is about.
I am a writer, now currently a self-published author of my first superhero novel titled “THE FIRST”.
The novel is both an origin story, and the beginning of this superhero universe that I call the EVO Universe.
Aside from a couple of hiccups with editing that have been corrected in the first novel, reception to the book has been beyond great, and I have had multiple requests begging for an ongoing series, which currently I am writing on the second novel to come out this year, and for a comic book.
I am currently self-promoting the first novel myself as well.
Currently I have broken down the first three chapters of the novel into a comic book manuscript that an artist willing to work on the book can follow.
I am looking not for an artist to hire.
I am looking for an artist, who wants to be apart of this universe that I have created.
I AM LOOKING FOR A PARTNER.
Basically, I would be Stan Lee looking for Jack Kirby or Steve Ditko.
I would be bringing to the table a full script for the first book, and already created reference characters that I made from a 3D software for an artist to refer to in order to bring key characters to life in a 2D platform.
I am also willing to split the profits from the comic book down the middle once it’s published fifty/fifty, and any additional books we work on based off of the success of the first book.
The advantage to this is if the comic book is as success and well received as the novel, we have material already created for six to eight books until I finish the second novel.
The rights to the novel, and the currently made characters would be mine (they’re all already copy written under me), but I’m willing to draw up a contract where both of us split proceeds down the middle for the comic book version of the story even when it comes to a possible movie deal (which I’ve been told by countless people that the story I’ve written should be a movie).
Kevin Hart (the comedian) always does a chant before his comedy shows that go “Everyone wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work.”
Basically meaning if you want to get to the top, you have to do the work.
And everyone needs help from somebody to get to where they need to go.
If you are an artist looking to get paid immediately…please do not apply…
If you are an artist with visions for working with the BIG 2 one day, and focused on that…I wish you the most earnest best of luck…but please do not apply.
I’m looking for an artist/partner who believes within his or her own gut that their artwork is as good as or even better than any DC or Marvel artist out there today.
I’m looking for an artist/partner who WILL NOT look at this as just work on MY project or vision, but will look at this as a project that will get us BOTH to where we want to go…to the top.
Someone with that Frank Miller mindset to make the next 300, that Mike Mignola drive to make the next Hellboy.
If you’re interested either send me a PM, or drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will shoot you a copy written version of the script and reference pictures of the first book.
And if you’re further interested on how deep the rabbit hole goes and if the chemistry between us is good, I will send you a copy of the book itself to read, so that you know what you’re signing up for.
I will say again…this is not a job post…this is an invitation for a partnership on a project that I believe in 100 percent based off of the feedback I am currently getting will be awesome.
I am looking for someone willing to believe in that awesomeness to.
If you believe you’ve got nothing to lose…apply.
Thank you for reading.
