Thanks for the nice comments, guys. Say hello if you're at APE, I'll be at a table with Nathan & other artists. The title is a deliberate takeoff from Love in the Time of Cholera. Glad it works. Rad, it's great to hear from you again, glad you liked it. You've read all the scripts I think, combined ...

This is the last part of the series of stories... please let me know if it's a satisfactory conclusion. “The morning broke on her face” An intensely sunny afternoon at a park. The park is on a street corner, about the size of a middle school auditorium, and has two palm trees, a picnic table, a gril...

Erika, I really enjoyed reading your story, and loved the lettering and loose story telling- it fits well with the "confessional mode". My favorite part was probably page 14's "traffic sign people" representation of a "traditional" relationship. Might I suggest cutting page 15 though? It impeded the...

Good stuff, man. I liked the ending, and the story's conceptually strong. Good opening line too. A couple points of confusion, however: Page 1 "(3) CAPTION: Isn’t good, mind you. Just nothing we haven’t seen before. " Reads awkwardly. Did you mean to say, "But nothing we haven't seen before" or "It'...

Thanks for the comments, Dek. I hope the transition from letter to party will be clearer when drawn, I can see where you're coming from there, I'll have to reexamine that. I hope Sean steps out from the "emo" stereotype for you. I guess you can't download 7 GB at once, but you can have 7 GB waiting ...

Hey guys, this is the next installment in my series... it's a little graphic, so if it's inapporpriate, please let me know, and I'll delete the post. It's continued from the last script I posted: "Confession" Night. Dykstra Hall, UCLA- a university residence hall. Inside a dark dorm room, on a desk,...

Another long one... "Natalie" Natalie* The ocean and me, drowning. Yet still I breath. A coral spectrum dazzles. And I float, fatigued alive when I should be dead, waiting to die, for this has to be a dream *The poem functions as a prologue to the story A clean, black 1990 Honda Accord streaks throu...

Maybe after the spinning bow tie routine, no one in the audience laughs. Dejected, Muerto leaves the stage, but then El Comico (I'd keep the suggestion that earlier in the story, Muerto feels betrayed by El Comico's "selling out") tells him he's great, that the audience isn't what it was, and that h...

Thanks for the considered responses again. Delinquent, I was reading your stuff, and I love the kids talking like "The Godfather", that's a new angle. I'm not sure if the political stuff is for the best, as you might be opening yourself up to comparisons to "Boondocks"- I'd focus on the criminal act...

I loved the "Ahh!!" panel after he chugs down the Peppy- and the ending's terrific. The character already shows great potential. I do have a couple points of confusion though: until the end, I didn't know the speaker was talking to a guy-also, I'm surprised that the speaker would ask how much a movi...

Thanks for the thoughtful reply, Johnny, I really appreciate it. I actually have written all the stories that I intend to for the collection- it's a bit much to post all at once though. Do you think it's necessary to break the script down into panels? While I have some ideas in that area, I tend to ...

Mother

Hey everyone, I'm an aspiring comic writer, and would appreciate any opinions/suggestions about a script I've written. It's titled "Mother", and it's the first part of a collection of short stories I've put together called "Love in the Time of Acne". Thanks, Sheng "Mother" <> brackets denote an Engl...
