I had a bit of time so I thought I’d give you lovely fans an update on where I am going with my comics.
Due to both budget restraints and my aim to keep stories concise each of 3 “big girls” of my comic book world will have a 3 issue origin story…
Kittiwake Girl: The Beginning: An alien child of incredible power is raised by a humble English Village before hitting the perilous big city as the world’s first Superlady.
Magnificent Magda: Genesis: An exhibit of a Nevada Freakshow finds out that she is in fact a half angel and is taught by a mysterious mentor how to balance the hidden world with the real one.
The Widow’s Vengeance: Widowed at the very moment she hears “I do” Kitty McAvoy sets off on a terrible vengeance spree that even the emerging community of Superheroines seem powerless to stop.
If these are a success I plan to go on to the War years with a crossover series entitled Peace in our Time as well as telling the story of the rise of the villainous Major Britannia.
Stay tuned for updates on Kittiwake Girl: The Beginning #1 and the Tabletop Wargame Whore’s Blade Heroics.
Over the past few days in writing Whore’s Blade: Heroics and processing ideas for comics I’ve become less and less convinced of the Character of Bomber Bird. She was begining to look like the daughter of the Adam West Batman and the Brave and The Bold Harley Quinn (there’s a horrible slashfic idea.) This looks like a lot of fun on paper but I really need a stronger character for one of my big three heroic leads and as she was Bomber Bird stood out too damn much.
Thus I am reinventing Kitty McAvoy as a far darker character known as the Widow. Widowed at the very moment she became a married woman Kitty goes on a vengence fueled rampage that brings her into conflict with the more more clean cut heroine Kittiwake Girl.
If any artists fancy drawing her please get in touch. I shall of course keep you all posted on her development. The picture above is Annie Havelock and I’d imagine Kitty would go for something less cumbersome and more practical.
