Learning By Doing

I’ve been at this comics thing a few months now so obviously I’m an expert. (No, obviously not. But, for real, I put off writing this post for a few weeks because I couldn’t begin to figure out what I wanted to say.)

Every issue, it seems, we hit a point where we say, “That wasn’t in the original plan. Hmm.” And we all look at each other for a few minutes, take a pause, and then we move forward with whichever one benefits the book more. So, then we have all these awesome changes we’re making as we go, and now the old pages we did, that we worked SO HARD ON, don’t reflect the most recent costume, or how that power signature is shown, or whatever.

We struggle here and there with what to do with those moments. In some cases, it’s a matter of a color or a line that isn’t EXACTLY what we’re doing down the line. That happens (Hulk was grey, Daredevil had the yellow costume, Superman originally couldn’t fly (it was super leaping, guys)).

This whole thing has been a learning process. And, on more than one occasion, I’ve found myself laughing at the comparisons between ourselves and Kid Riot. But that’s what’s making it even more exciting, I think. Seeing this thing evolve and grow, getting reactions from you guys, talking to people who’ve read – it’s been awesome and we can’t wait for more, whether it’s Facebook, Tumblr, or at cons this summer.
