This piece is kind of unusual. It’s pencil, digital and handmade paper, but it came out looking like pastel!
I apologize for any inconvenience, but an update to our ComicPress software has caused the blog section of the website to malfunction. I don’t know when I will have the time to fix it, or even if this notice will post. We’ve had problems importing material from one format to another before.
The comics are intact, as far as I can tell, and my posts are archived, you just can’t see them.
I will try to get them up again when I have the chance to sit down with tech support.
Also, updating the colleendoran.com site wiped out the site entirely. I know there’s a plug in problem, but I can’t get to this stuff right now.
Sorry, will manage it all later.
ELECTRICOMICS is 100% FREE, publicly funded, open source code you can use to create your own, original digital comics works. The initial release also features original stories.
Those comics included “Red Horse” by Garth Ennis and Frank Victoria, “Sway”, by Leah Moore, John Reppion and Nicola Scott, “Cabaret Amygdala Presents: ‘Second Sight’” by Peter Hogan and Paul Davidson, and “Big Nemo” by Alan Moore and Colleen Doran.
Alan Moore on BIG NEMO, the project we did together. Naturally, I am going to highlight the wonderful things he said about my work. Because you would, too.
And in any possible future outings, what I would want to do would be to continue the story, and frankly that is aided immensely by having the sublime Colleen Doran on the artwork. We had no idea who would be drawing this when I wrote the script. I think Jose Villarubia suggested her name, and I’d been a fan of her work since A Distant Soil. The job that she’s done on “Big Nemo” is absolutely stunning. That rollercoaster, I believe that did almost drive her mad.

Fortunately, I’ve never needed them.
But many cartoonists do.
This job comes with no security, or benefits of any kind. And if you can’t keep working, and don’t have enough royalties or savings, you can quickly be wiped out. Most creators are only about 60-90 days from bankruptcy.
One of my all-time favorite inkers, Bob Wiacek, has a GoFUNDME campaign up right now to help him recover from the devastating financial losses he sustained when his wife became severely ill and passed away. Bob and his wife were uninsured.
THE HERO INITIATIVE is the only charity for comic book creators. It has distributed $750,000 to artists and writers in need.
This is a wonderful story about the good work they do.
You’d be surprised how many big name creators have had to turn to THE HERO INITIATIVE for aid.
The creative team on AMAZING FANTASTIC INCREDIBLE STAN LEE donated a portion of the advance from the book to THE HERO INITIATIVE. I hope we’ll be able to continue to contribute.
If you care about the people who bring you the stories you love and can help out, please go to THE HERO INITIATIVE website and contribute what you can, or make a purchase, with all proceeds going to the benefit of THE HERO INITIATIVE.
