And give some freedom to your artists to explore. Nothing worse than seeing a script where the writer is all strict and demanding, instead of being open and inviting to the artist.

Love your artist

Also, be patient with your first script and hire an editor. I went through 4 re-writes before my script was anywhere ready to be published. And you won't know that because of ego; until you hire an editor who can point that stuff out.
Ah, cool! My dielema though is I have to do it over the net for now, if I was doing it normaly like you are, I could just do it however I wanted, but over the net it's alot harder.

Yeah, we're working in a team of four, so that'll be easy.

I do. (no homo)

Yeah, I may need to act as a sort of editor. I can get a bit big headed sometimes, but I can just see that a few of my teammates ideas wn't work and are too basic. Once you salvage the basics and give it a new background if you will though, everyone's ideas are golden. Somettimes I need to add more detail into everyones ideas, although I have to admit some of my ideas also need a boost. But hopefully if nothing else, our comic won't be awfull.

And now my comic is completely lettered. So crazy, but great to see your characters get voices for the first time since you've been working on the project. The letters being done means from a technical sense, that it's completely finished. However, the journey is just now starting as I hunt for a publisher (or decide on self-publishing) and try to build up the hype train. So if you know anyone with a blog, podcast, or any other comic book/pop culture avenue that would like to have a hungry comic book creator to come on and talk...let me know. Seriously, I'll rub pie in my face if it's what it takes

Here's a preview of the letters.

Here is the first 'POTus Letter' for The Nobodies Comic . There will be one of these per issue and will act as prologues for each issue. They'll give some more insight into the world of The Nobodies, also setting up who I'm hoping is a great character - The POTus. Here's a sneak peak at the first one...

Not sure if I'm allowed to critique, but that type face is a bit hard to follow with something so full of letters. (Unless that's what you're going for) Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, what I'm probably going to do is supply a standard Arial or Times New Roman version on the website/Tumblr, and other places. It's supposed to look like calligraphy, which is supposed to be a bit difficult to read. If you've ever seen letters from the colonial era, they're extremely difficult to make out. Might look at other calligraphy type fonts before the issue comes out as well.

And I welcome critiques with open arms, as long as there's something I can work with or respond to

Maybe at some point this should tie in with Hookers and Pictionary.

Yeah, I figured that was what you were trying to do. But you have to remember that we live in a world of Twitter where anything that is 140 characters long now requires a TL;DR attached to it. Maybe if there was something super secret hidden within the words that made it extra rewarding for the audience to trek through the hard font.

The first review for The Nobodies is in...

"John and his team have an interesting gem on their hands. Page by page John displays a solid grasp of comic book story telling that made it a joy to read. The choice of revealing Iggy’s identity late was smart and John’s display of suspense building and establishing mystery along with using clues given to strengthen his story were phenomenal. John has much potential in the world of comics. Ger’s artwork has a bit of grime that resembles what I would expect of The Walking Dead which adds a flair of filth needed to truly get our cast.

Easily this comic is a must read for comic fans and while it won’t change the medium it is exactly the kind of story that is missing; an honest, throat grabbing draw into an unknown world."

4.5/5 stars
