So, I’m working on a spec comic book script for DC’s Green Lantern superhero. Now before you get all excited, no this is not a commission. I’m not getting paid for this, nor have I been asked to make this in any way. I’m just making a spec script to get noticed.
Of course, to do that, I’ll need to hire an inker and a penciller, which means I’ll have to get a Kickstarter going. It’s going to cost around 2000 bucks when all is said and done. I’ll probably do the lettering myself to save a little money. Inker will be paid $800, that’s $100 per page. Penciller will be paid the same. I know it’s on the low end, but that’s what I can afford.
Or will afford. Once I get the money.
Why not draw and ink the thing myself?
Simple. Because I’ll be bringing these pages to conventions, and I want to look professional. If you’ve read Bubblegum-Man, you’ll know my drawing skillz, mad though they may be, will not be enough.
In the meantime, I’d appreciate any and all feedback on my script. You can download the file below. Be sure and leave a comment, like, and subscribe.
