Adam has been working on the Novelisation of the story, and has also been working on an timeline for the world in which Wychwolf happens. We have some back story on the BrightAngel Foundation, and Adam has worked this up into a timeline. The Foundation was established by Royal Charter by Alfred the Great, and charged to keep the kingdom free of Dragons, and all manner of diverse ills which plague the nation.
It’s no secret that there are some Zombies lurking somewhere in this story… In fact I’ve spent a very entertaining Bank Holiday weekend inking up the long winded dispatch of just one zombie…
What I’d like to know is what is the best way to get rid of a Zombie (slow, moaning Zombie, not the scary fast running Zombie)? Best reasoned suggestion gets included in the story.
I’ve been putting in some detail to the next part of the story… and whilst Adam has been obliged to change some of the Novel to match ideas in the plot synopsis… I’m changing some bits to reflect ideas he’s had…I’d like to change the next few pages, but what’s done is done. It’s in the queue.
Anyway, this fella here is a direct result of one of Adam’s ideas.. you can read his novelisation over at http://www.wychwolf.co.uk
Last Night after a good three quarters of an hour of carefully crafted DrWho screenplay the BBC let Mr Norton contaminate things with a “coming up next, who wants to be the next celebrity dancing on Dogs?” lower third, dispelling all the tension. (At least that’s what happened in the UK, I know a lot of you readers are from the US, so might have been saved from this)
Anyway, the point behind the post was that there was a lot of effort in the Dr Who show to get the set nice and dark…to set an atmosphere… it was riffing on the “Aliens” theme, a team of commandos working their way through the dark… It prompted me to work on a few backgrounds for the story and make them dark.
I too have a team who are going to be entering the dark, who knows what horrors await?
Nasty things hide in the dark…
I just read Kick Ass, and have to say I haven’t been gripped by a comic story plot quite so well in years… It is horribly, horribly, brutally violent, and coprolallic in the extreme…BUT, but, it is completely engaging…. and it made me realise how very slow the pace of our current story is. Sure we’ve had a some evisceration, and tentacle lopping.. but not enough.
I’ve got the next couple of pages already stacked in ComicPress, and I guess we have got a bit of Zombie dog popping up, but following pages are now down for a redraw, with more action in the characters, and possibly some more violence.
I’m not sure if I want to see the film, I think it might be a little wince inducing.
