With all the characters I've been writing up and commissioning art for, it seems like a good idea to provide some context for these guys. Here are some short summaries of the stories I'm currently working on with these and more characters I've been collecting, including what genre I'm aiming for and what I think their demographic might be. I used the submission guidelines for different comic publishers as a sort-of guide for writing these out. I have a lot of other characters posted on another site, but I'm thinking about posting them here too. If you have thoughts about any of this, go ahead and let me know.
Along with that, I'm trying to make comics with some of these characters as well. That means a whole host of other things I'll need to think about, from writing out comic scripts to finding a good artist to partner with. It seems like a lot of indie comics need a consistent artist-writer partnership, which means finding a good artist and sticking with them. Good luck to me finding someone like that. If anyone knows about a good comic artist that may fit with the style of the characters I've gotten and the stories I'm putting them in, don't hesitate to let me know.
