Okay, now it’s heating UP.
THIS is what gets me charged. THIS is why Thrillbent exists. To show what digital comics can do and to pass along to others what we learn as we go. This is one of my proudest moments yet:
I’ve been praising Yves “Balak” Bigerel’s talents from the start. Far as I’m concerned, he’s the artist who Broke The Code when it came to defining digital comics, and what I know, I got from him. So I asked him to take one of my short stories I’d done years ago for print and storyboard it out as a digital comic, taking whatever liberties he needed to and adapting it freely. What he delivered is AMAZING. Better yet, he sent an annotated version as well. So if you have any interest in doing digital comics (or doing them better), go NOW NOW NOW to read “Cthulhu Calls.” Compare my original script to what Balak did and, more importantly, read his annotations on WHY he made the choices he made. NOW NOW NOW.
Then, as I am, thank Thrillbent’s Lori and Ann Hess for their hard work in assembling this.
