Comic Book Project

So I’m writing a script for a comic book. I don’t have a working title for it, I initially was using Solaris and then my buddy Josh Ortega quickly informed me that this was a title for a movie with George Clooney. I haven’t seen the movie, I doubt it has much in common with what I’m writing, but now I’ll have to come up with a new title. I’m usually pretty good at doing this, but I’m having a hard time with this one. I put up a page on here with the very, very short exercise that prompted the comic book idea. I would love any suggestions.

The main character is named Erik Kalldron, and his superpowers are gained from an accident with a plasma collector on the surface of the sun. The story takes place in our not too distant future. This is a future where Space Tourism is flourishing and the Space Industry in general is almost like a new wild west. There are no laws in space, only corporate policy. Some of the themes I hope to explore: Corporate-run governments, Indentured servitude gained from United States college graduates mired in student loan debt, Imperialism, Inequality, Justice, Revenge, etc.

I’m very excited about it and I hope it comes to fruition. I have a wonderful few first pages that I really like, at least for now. I have this horrible hatred for most of what I write and it is nice to not feel that way on a project. The Dark Roast pulls me down that negative hole often; I hate the first half. I can’t even read it. When I try, I want to set it on fire and delete it from Amazon. It’s crazy.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Have a good day everyone and don’t die!
