Your whole idea should fit within one or two sentences.That's when you know it's good.
Superman:Last survivor of a doomed world comes to earth and fights crime.
Lord of the Rings:Frodo must save Middle Earth by destroying the one ring in the fires that forged it.
Whipjacks:Modern Urban Fantasy about a team of mercenary supers(my idea i never found an artist for.)

i wish i was here for gunbaby.

as for pitching, i actually told a few people the general idea and gave them the overall picture of where i was going with it. i have everything i want to do in my mind but i think starting it out is the real tough part.

for mine, it starts out in the past for like the first 5 pages. then it goes right to the present. it's like a storyline-driven-centric comic that has the occasional comedy thrown in. part of me really doesn't want each strip to always end in comedy. i feel that it should be a storyline that continues to go. (i don't know what you guys think about that though!)

the whole idea and the process is going to be tough. i think once i get my first 5 scripts/pages drawn (really outlined) i'll post them on here for you guys first.

The only reason we aren't doing anything with Gunbaby right now is because no one is submitting anything for Gunbaby right now.

I like the idea and backstory so much I might just force beg the artists I'm working with to do something Gunbaby related in the future. But we're still open for Gunbaby submissions. Make no mistake.  ;D

That's actually a pretty cool idea, I might do that myself.

I always enjoy little things like that in comics.

Injokes and cameos are fantastic. I always get a laugh at random pokémon appearing in Sister Claire, for example.

Current scene in NtK (strip #741) is taking place on a rooftop, and I put a 'Gunbaby:The Movie - coming soon' billboard on the roof of an adjacent building in the background :)

Anyone else done this yet?

Actually we should try and make this thing go viral - get a Gunbaby movie poster in the background of a bunch of comics, see if we can get a couple of the big-name guys to agree to do it.

Basically I think it would be fucking hilarious if we managed to get Kid Galactus a movie deal through the power of incedental detail memetics.

so once i finish drawing the comic for neko the kitty, i'm going back to drawing mine. i actually have 11 scripts done. it's more of a crime dramedy. it stars one of my favorite characters who is a complete moron and says the stupidest things. he has to try to solve the reasons why he got kicked off the force as a detective. there are going to be some big story arcs i think and it's actually been fun to write.

"Why did I get fired"? is a good mystery for a comedy detective to try and solve

I think one of us is reading the other wrong (I'm getting a bit of a defensive vibe from the "yea...but")

I was saying it's a strong idea for the first case. Plenty of comedy potential, but also grounded in something a lot of people these days can empathise with - losing your job. Plus it's a good reason to have the character investigating his own past, which really opens up a lot of Character and World development potential early on.

haha no defense at all. i tend to type ..but a lot when i write.

that's what i was going for. once i finish your guest comic (almost done!) i'm going to go back to mine. it seems that i have a story planned. hope that it actually works.
