But back to Marvel in general. If I were to put my talents to work with them, I would demand complete creative control. I would rebuild their books back to something special. something to look forward to. I would restore the Golden Age of Marvel comics to it's rightful place. I would cut their books to a core 6. I would reboot their entire universe, and would have complete control over the writers, their writing, the art, the look, and the direction their universe would take from there. The SJW fiasco and the subsequent rebirth failure is just the excuse the executives would need to hire an unknown like me, let the dices roll, and see what happens. I would take Marvel comics and turn it into something that fans would want to read. no more gimmicks would be a slogan placed all over the marvel comics building. I would say no more multiple covers, no more 1 shot issues just designed to pull sales from DC. I would create comics that readers would buy, and continue to buy. It would be the ultimate rebirth of the company, and the rebirth of creativity that is sorely lacking these days in Hollywood, and in the Marvel comics universe.
I thank you guys for all the awesome notes. I had no idea that those things had been going on. It saddens me to see what has happened. I was mortified!!
There is just so much one person can do. I think there is a vacuum that can be filled with fresh and real true artistic creativity, and Marvel sadly doesn't seem to know or care. in fact, someone in one of the notes I got pointed me to an article where Marvel basically blamed their fans for their shitty sales, and then essentially said America is Racist, sexist, and bigoted! really?? this is how you sell comics to fans? blame them for your mistakes??
I would have 5 core stipulations put into my contract.
1. I have complete and total creative direction and control over the entire core comics line for Marvel.
2. FIRE Joe Quesada, Mark Waid, and about 15 other high profile names. Their time has come to leave, make way for writers and artists people want to see!
3. No-ANIME style art in the books! It has become so ridiculously cartoonized that looking at the books is just cringe worthy. squinting eyes does not convey every kind of emotion!
4. Cancel all titles and only release 6 books. I choose the titles, the story directions and oversee all the edits on the books dialogue and writing.
5. None of the Capital comics universe characters, concepts, and or storylines are for sale, or can be pilfered by the writers or Marvel comics. I would never let my creations become owned by such a company, even if I ran it. My characters would remain solely for my purposes and future plans. I would only be there to rebuild their failing universe, and trust me friends, I would make it AWESOME!
Yes, I know, I have 50 Notes to go thru, and so far there is a common theme I am noticing, you guys want CCS BAD!! You want comics from CCS Bad!! I know, I know. there is a lack of great stories, art, and characters out there now. I understand what has been going on. I have woken up, got out from beneath my rock and realize now why I have become so popular with comic fans recently. I can't tell you guys how humble I am to be the focus of such wishful requests to get on with it already! I can see that void is huge now, and Marvel has actually lost fans, and some maybe forever. I get it! I am down with the new news.
I'll tell you guys this.. If you truly want me to take the reigns on with Marvel, I will consider it. But I want to have total creative control. NO CORPORATE MANDATED POLITICS IN THE COMICS! I will not work under that agenda driven drivel. I would only work there if I had the ability to reshape that universe like Jim Lee has done successfully to the DC universe. It would be an interesting challenge. I know I have more talent after having read all the articles you guys sent me, all the comments on the state of the Comics realm, and slumped sales of Marvel comics and the need for me to get my books out! I get it guys! I am so freaking humbled by the sheer volume of requests, I can't put into words how this simple Deviant art artist has become a fan favorite with no comics out yet!!
I know you guys have watched me for awhile, when I was Skywarp-2
skywarp-2.deviantart.com/galle… a nod to my huge presence on seibertron.com as a Transformers fan, and the 673 comic characters, stories, and synopsis there on that page. all copyrighted and secure in my pocket. You have watched my art progression get way better as I trained myself on how to use digital coloring and this new digital ink pen to convey my work to you and my vision. You now know I have a secondary passion, which is Doctor Who and time lord technology art..
time-lord-rassilon.deviantart.… For those going way back, I am sure you remember the birth of Star Superion, his first incarnation came from City of Heroes. Yea, I remember you guys, we used to run missions together. it was a tight little community of cool artists and fans. I loved all you guys! to have such an outpour of requests.. and to now know what has happened to Marvel, makes it all the more sense in the world to me that there is a need for pure and naturally talented artists and writers to come back to the Marvel universe. I would hire a lot of Deviant art members for sure! If Main stream comics have been the core body of fan expression, then Deviant art is the soul and heart of the comic fans. Here we support each other's vision, give feedback when needed. We know what we like, and we know when we see something that we don't like.
I hear your cries, I love your support, and I will read all those notes and reply as soon as I can. I can't believe how far My MARVEL comics has fallen. If I were to be in charge, I would make it Amazing Marvel comics! I would bring back the heady good old days, and make it real, make it exciting, and make it what it always used to be.
But for you my friends, I will get on the CCS stuff ASAP! I will write short stories beneath my art, and once I am ready, you guys will have a comics bonanza from Capital comics studios that will blow anything New Marvel can ever think to bring out. I will make it my mission to show them how it's done, and give you the best writing, stories and concepts that are NOT political, NOT SJW, and completely driven with one goal in mind. To make you love the characters, identify with them, feel for them, and see them thrive and battle a non-stop thrill ride into a Comics universe worthy of your attention and love. I appreciate everyone's requests. I know your more interested in my comic stuff then my Doctor who work.. (I am still obligated there) but I promise you, I swear..
I will make every effort to give you guys something you can tell your friends about. I just don't want to make a comic that one reads and puts in a bag and stores away, I want to make comics that you'd want to read over and over again, because you just love the ride!!
THAT my friends is what I will Promise to Bring you. You deserve the best! Tho I am not the best out there, I will try with every fiber of my being to give my all to you, for you, and everything I post here from this day forward is for all of you! I want you to be entertained, happy, and have something we can all look back at and say, those comics there..
those comics.. Capital Comics.. those ones are the ones I want to keep.. those stories are just amazing.
If I can do that, and make you all proud of me, then I am fulfilling my life's dream, to be a creator that creates ideas, stories and comics that you, and I would want to see. I don't care too much about any kind of personal popularity, or adulation.. tho the support is nice. I just want to give this my best, and give you the best.
Without you guys, I would not be here. Without your support, I would have given up when I lost almost everything in my life. I am humbled by the recent slam of notes. I am actually tearing up writing this, because of the love I can feel coming from the words in those Notes. I don't know, it's like you all had the same idea all at once and just slammed me with such information, and love, and support, and demands in some cases..
I'm on it guys! Cheers!
P.S. I love you guys too!
