Welcome to Coverband Comics...

Welcome to Coverband Comics.

This is a little project I've been trying to get launched for many a year now as part of my never-ending quest to gain a foothold in the ever slippery, unscalable peak that is the comic-book industry.

The idea originally was that I would just pass around some mini-scripts I'd written starring established (mainly Big Two) characters to all of the artists I'd worked with in the past. The theory was if they illustrated the little script we'd both have a great little sequential strip to add to their portfolio should either of us ever get the chance to get before the eyeballs of some top biller from either company.

Sadly I knew way too many talented people. All of them had work elsewhere in much giddier heights than my little 'portfolio padding' project could hope to match. More power to them I say!

So I threw the doors open to any artist I happened to be remotely acquainted with at all. Sadly this too came up with naught. Everybody was interested but the project always seemed to get lost in the comic-book grind shuffle.

So until now my little mini scripts have been languishing in the obscurity of my hard drive *gulp* archived projects folder!

Then I thought why not just stick the scripts up somewhere that everyone and anyone can see them. That way they're available to anyone who might just happen past and feel like knocking out a Spider-man or Superman sequential page to pad to their portfolio, to loosen their artistic muscles or even just for kicks.

So if you're an artist and you wind up here. Browse the posts - if you see a script, a page or even a panel you'd like to draw, go for it.

When you're done, stick a copy in your portfolio and send one to me. I'll stick it up on the blog here for all of the loyal YouAreComic passers by to admire (I'll also tout it on twitter and facebook for good measure).

NOTE: All of these scripts are just vignettes starring established characters. They're not full stories or universe spanning epics. They're just fun little interactions or moments starring characters I felt like scripting at the time.

NOTE THE SECOND: I don't own the copyright to any of the characters featured and am not attempting to make profit of any kind from this project. It's just for fun.
