Dragonwolf webcomic page 1: The Blackwolf Samurai
I’ll never forget how excited I was to finally have a comic book page in my hand of something I had written. It hasn’t changed in 20+ years either. I was overjoyed with Will (at the time has preferred to be called “Bill”) and seeing what I had written come to life.
When I first wrote this, I knew nothing of comic book script format or page layouts, and Bill didn’t have much in the way of formal comic training either. I wrote the story in prose form, which is partly why it turned out to be almost forty pages! But since then I’ve learned a LOT, and newer pages of this story, and others, will have a better flow, rhythm and presentation.
But for now, we can look back on this for what it was, my first real attempt at telling a story I thought needed to be told. Granted, a miscommunication later on in this issue presented me with a problem that I was able to solve, and help build out the bigger world of Circus-13.
Dragonwolf, while on hold searching for an artist willing to commit to a few pages, if not two more issues of this story, will be migrating over to the Circus-13 Productions audio drama page. Adapting the comic to an audio drama is going on right now with hopes to have it recording before the end of 2016!
Who is this bald guy? Where is he going? A very slow start to what will be a mystery/super-hero/action story known as Dragonwolf!
