An establishing shot of Hollywood in the late 1930s. The hill still has a sign that says “Hollywoodland” on it, as houses of the rich and famous rise around it. In the valley, we can see various studios. (Note, the narrator is NEVER seen)
NARRATOR: Hollywood, at the dawn of the Golden Age of Cinema! Cradled within the Hollywood hills, the studios and the stars produce masterpieces that will stand the test of time. However, it is a competitive industry, and the stars, and studio profits, must be kept safe.
A shot of the MGM lot from above.
NARRATOR: As such, the studios have several in house detectives to investigate any wrongdoings within their walls. At MGM, their detective is…unique. How unique? You’ll see soon enough.

February Monthly Challenge

This Monthly Theme will be:
That's right everyone, Gaslight is our new theme! The world of Gaslight has some very steampunk elements to it to consider, so please feel free to veer of
An English Drinking SongThe British Drunk Song
I’m from England, born and bred
The weather is bloody terrible
The people full of dread
And some of our food…is scarcely edible
Is it any wonder then? (What?)
Is it a shocking realization? (No!)
That all our English Gentlemen
Resort to total…inebriation?
But why should we be drunk?! (Why?)
Why should we be pissed?! (Why?)
There are so many finer words
In fact I’ve got the list!
You could be parked, you could be farmed
Toasted, chilled, smattered and ever so slightly battered
Be careful you don’t get tanked
That can do some harm
So when you are heading home tonight
And an officer asks if you’ve been drinking
Don’t panic! Don’t worry! Don’t moan!
Just edify his limited means of thinking…
Pissed?! (BAH!) I’m trampoline’d!
Rat Arsed?! (NO!) He’s only farmed!
The Oxford English Dictionary
Is but an inebriated litany
To show you just how much we drank
And how much more before we’re tank
Xmas Short story gift: Foxhole ChristmasJude was not by nature a weak man, he was not feeble in strength, mind or spirit and he vigorously exercised; push ups, weight lifting, treadmills and of course there was the superhero regime because he wasn’t quite ready for Fox’s work out scheme (it was being deliberately punched in the ribs which put him off). In spite of this he was in no way a weak man that said he found himself in an awkward and uncomfortable situation as he was carrying a six foot pine tree up the stairs of the high rise apartments. He had discovered that there was no easy way to carry a pine tree, no matter which way you held it you were going to get prickled and if you tried to drag it up the stairs it would affect your balance and given they were ten floors up now he was even more unwilling to risk falling down the stairs.
“How many more floors now Haley?” Jude wheezed
“What was that Jude-y?”
Jude stopped climbing the stairs and rotated until his face was in visual of Haley
Creators Rights at ConventionsConventions have become big business in the last few years. More shows keep popping up, attendance keeps rising, and there's more money than ever being passed around as comics continue to merge with pop culture/big media/corporate sponsorships into what I've been calling Supershows.seangordonmurphy
For the most part, I think this is a great thing for the creators and our industry. While a few might miff at the thought of comics being intruded upon by other industries, it means more chances for starving artists to make money, more money for commissions and prints, and chances to travel to exotic locations that were never previously on our agenda.
More and more frequently, creators are being lured to shows all over the world with travel costs (at least partially) comped. When they arrive, they'll be met by capable handlers, lines of cheering fans, and fancy parties while they're given the brief whiff of stardom that's usually reserved for Mick Jagger.
But not always.
While many of my pro friends are ete
Writers, want some exposure for your scripts?Writers, do you want some exposure for your scripts?jotazombie
As the title says this is for writters, we know getting someone to collab with your works is probably harder since usually it will imply lot more commitment and effort than "just" inking or coloring a single piece. so may be we could put our two cents here and help you to get more exposure to find someone to work with.
I don't know how many writter we have out there but I guess at least some so the idea would be to post a journal entry featuring a couple writter and scripts.
I think probably it would be a good idea to make these scripts shorts because as I said before, working on sequentials means more work than a single pieces so may be a 24 pages script could be a bit intimidating sometimes but it's just a suggestion, if you want to post long scripts is ok.
I'll leave this post on the home page for some time waiting if there're enough writters interested to get featured I know we don't ha
Lots O' Stuff + OC Feature (5 slots open)mirz-alt
Lots of things on the fire and it's going to be a bit of a juggling act, but I'm super-excited. More excited than I've been in a long time, which is good since I really haven't felt truly happy in many months. Granted, I'm sure the hammer will come down eventually, but for now I'm gonna ride the happy wave.
As many of you have seen, Jim and I have started work on our next project. Even though Relativity has several years ahead of it, I always had a nagging worry about what I would work on after the series ends. I do have several WIP books, but I was still concerned. The Chasers Universe is the perfect fit as it will allow me to shift down a bit and develop independent novels, yet still have the complexity of an ongoing story like Relativity. I don't want to say more as we're still in the planning stages, but if you want to follow concept-art and WIP stuff, be sure to visit the website at http://www.chasersuniverse.com
What about Relativity? Do not
If you got into comics in the 80's and 90's like I did, then the name Norm Breyfogle needs no introduction. If you've ever drawn pointy shoulders on Batman's cape or put specific gadgets on Bat's utility belt, then you owe this man an artistic debt. For me, Norm will always be the seminal Batman artist. Unfortunately, Norm has suffered a stroke which has paralyzed his left side, leaving him unable to draw. His treatment has already eaten up his savings, and his family is asking for help.
Now, for those of you who know me, you know that I'm not one to post about causes of any sort. In fact, I'm a stony, pitiless creature of a man who has a black hole where a human heart should be. But, as I said before, I feel like I owe this man for his contributions not only to one of my favorite characters, but to my artistic development. For those of you who live the freelance life, you know how har
