Still plugging away at the new pitch with Hannah. Finished another draft of the script for the 9 pages we’ll pitch last night and just waiting to hear from a few people if I’ve nailed it on this pass so we can start getting the pages drawn. I think this new version is much better than previous drafts, so I am confident we’ll be starting drawing soon. I really can’t wait to see Hannah bring these pages to life. Also we just brought the incredible Thomas Mauer on board to do design and letters. Thomas is the fantastic letterer for a bunch of Image books right now, including two of my favorites, Gladstone’s School for World Conquerors & Graveyard of Empires among many other titles. You can check out his work here. I can’t wait to see what kind of design he comes up with for the pitch.
We also need a title. As I said the story is about dragons and the title that popped into my head that sparked the idea for the story was “The Last Dragon”, but this has been used in a film, book and also another comic book Dark Horse put out this last week. So we need something new and different since our story is nothing like these other stories.
Hannah should be finishing up this test page in the next day or so and once we lock the style of art as well as the script, we are off to the races. I’ll keep you posted throughout the process.
