Just to remind everyone, Girl Comics #2 is out THIS WEDNESDAY, and it includes a wacky Nextwave story by me, so please please pick up a copy! I had a lot of fun doing that comic for Marvel, and who knows, they might ask me back for more 'splodey fun or something. (Probably not, but you never know.)
So last year about this time was my very first contact with Marvel. Specifically I was asked if I'd pitch an 11 page "Iron Man or Wolverine story." Since I had absolutely no interest in drawing Iron Man (all that mechanical armour, ugh!) and consider myself a patriotic beaver-flag-waving Canadian type, I opted for Wolverine. I sent Marvel 11 pages of thumbnails and a script, and never heard back. Boo hoo! Oh well. Eventually they asked me to do a submission for Girl Comics, so it all worked out in the end.
As for the Wolverine story, I still kinda like it. I like the idea of superheroes going grocery shopping and paying their bills and other mundane stuff like that, 'cause I'm weird. So here's my 11 pages of script and thumbnails, all handily htmled together for your viewing pleasure.
Go here for the whole kaboodle. There are ninjas. Weirdly enough, Girl Comics #1 included a "Doc Ock goes grocery shopping" 2 pager by Lucy Knisley. BEHOLD GLOBAL TELEPATHY.
Anyway, in conclusion, DOUG RAMSEY LIVES. And pick up Girl Comics #2 at your local comic shop on Wednesday! Here is this panel again:
Mmm, pretty shiny Marvel colours ... *licks*
