"I don't know how your plot develops, but it might be good to have Spiritman's alter Ego learn to defend himself or fend for himself, if only as a means of emotional growth. Otherwise, well done. God Bless You."

"It looks good, but you may want to check out Stan Lee's "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way." It gives some pointers on drawing fight scenes. Again well done. God Bless You."

Profile Information

Location:
Roanoke, Virginia
Gender
male
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I wouldn't claim to any expertise in any field, but my areas of interest lie in the writing and scripting of comic books (I couldn't draw a straight line to save my life ha-ha). I also have interests in history, science and science fiction.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I'll confess that my testimony is by comparison, dull as dishwater. I became a believer in my teens and have found that my faith has become a stabilizing influence in my life which I wish to share with others.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
It would probably be as a writer or scripter for one of the smaller companies. The pay might not be as good, but the chances to express myself and share my faith might be more prevalent.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I hate to say it but none of the current creators really stand out as favorites. I've always been fond of the work of Frank Frazetta, Julie Bell, Olivia DeBeredinis and Neal Adams however.

Hi Mike & thanks for the welcome. I was on this site before (as Indiginous Bert) but lost touch & forgot the log in info (that & I no longer have the original email) I've put up a few pictures if you're interested. GOD bless

I did a quick search and found several books that have on.line exerpts: The Physics of superheroes. By Kakalios 2009,  and  The Secret Science of Superheroes. By Lorch an Miah 2017. Both books have science explanations on how supers like Magneto can use electricity and Magnetism to fly.

Thank you Mike; I always appreciate your positive comments on my efforts.

How to make your Character fly is as much a style statement as their outfit, and don't have to have any grounding in logic. Thor's hammer and Wonder Woman's lasso make no sense, they were just already part of their outfits. In Roland Dahl's children's story, the BFG, the Giant can fly after drinking bubby juice and farting, (Merely an example of the wide range of possibilities beyond having wings or riding a winged mascot.)

One more thought: if the flying ability depends on a piece of equipment then it can be lost or stolen; if it depends on an appendage then it can be injured. These 'problems' can be used in future plot-possibilities.

Thank you for the welcome! I was on vacation for a while and couldn't figure out how to properly comment back!

Thank you for the name of the sequential artist! I went and looked him up,and was very impressed with what I found! Will Eisner is now a familiar name for me. :)

Thanks! I really enjoyed re-creating Spiderman and putting a spin on his story for Christ.

Its cool that we have shared interests in science, history and cartooning. Look forward to seeing some of your thoughts in discussion and blog. Also, since I am naturally nosey, do you have any scripting/writing projects on your horizon?

At 7:34am on January 1, 2015, Brian Raborn said…

Thanks I look forward to acquiring them and reading through them. The one main thing I think I struggle with is professionalism with my work, like when you read the comic section of the newspaper or in a comic book being able to put my work into the boxes.
