Guyver 1's Creating an independent comic blog of happy fun times

Recommended Posts

So here I sit. I am so close to completing the newest issue of my comic, The Maniacal Smile. Issue 7 to be exact. My publisher has given me a hard deadline for completion of the art on this issue. The book is 22 pages per issue. I handle all of the pencils and inks. I am on page 19 inks now with the rest of the book already penciled. For the first time, I have a colorist to aid in the effort to complete this. I usually did all of the art from pencils, inks and colors on the book. With 03/15 rapidly approaching I am stressed, excited and exhausted with all of the work. Not only will this be a new issue of Smiley, but it will complete our 2nd trade paperback of the series. It is a total labor of love and very gratifying to see your own creation continue to baby step towards greatness. We have a very loyal fanbase that allows us to keep this going.

 

Anyone else here do their own book or project?

Hello Yuki,

 

There is a site for it, it is www.fiercecomics.com the book I do is called The Maniacal Smile. It's been in print as a comic, we made a board game, card game, shirts and all kinds of stuff for it. I would love to hear what you think of it!

Hello Guyver1!

 

Anyone else here do their own book or project?

 
I have a comic named Crescent (МеÑÑц). Mainly it's nonsense and poor drawn, made for lols. Started in 2008 and now have only 3 chapters + special crossover chapter Crescent VS Naburo. Yet to be translated to English.

That's cool Cannibal! I've been working on Smiley since 1997. I created it in high school and been doing it since.

Issue 7 inks are completed. I have begun coloring the pages the colorist has not been able to complete. 7 pages left for colors due by 03/15 and then this issue is in the can and we are good to go to the next arc of the storyline... it's called the Ben-A.N.A. Republic. Smiley's city of Utopia gets taken over by Ben the psycho monkey. This arc will run 4 issues (8-11) and will be in trade paperback form in 2016. Lots to do!!

Exciting is the editing process! Last evening's edit call for the lettering took about 3 and a half hours... about 121 changes. Some small some pretty big, LOL! The book is in the final stages of completion!!

Final lettering edits are complete! Files for issue 7 and the 2nd trade have been sent to the printer. Both will be out in April! Also attended a small convention this past weekend, gained lots of new readers, met some peeps and did a small panel discussion with the publisher to answer questions on how to get into comics. Overall, feeling great! Less than 3 weeks to the biggest con in FL, Megacon, and about to begin work on the next issue.
