Sound Waves

I Still Have Too Much Fun With My Characters

You know how Marvel has their What If stories that posit alternate versions and realities of their characters without being bogged down by continuity?

You know how DC has Elseworlds, that lets people tell stories about alternate versions of the characters without being bogged down by continuity?

I know, sounds like their regular titles, too!  Thank you, I'll be here all week!

Well, yesterday, while taking a break from working on the Sound Waves Christmas Special, an idea hit me.  One that I can't shake.  I have to do this.  This is the bright side to self-publishing -- you can get some dopey, fun idea, and you don't have to run it past editorial if you want to do it.

I'm going to do a story with Rhapsody and Melody as super spies.

Doesn't fit in continuity, not overly serious, either (it is Sound Waves, after all), but the more I think about it, the more I think it can work as a bit of fun.

So, sometime next year, watch for Sound Waves -- How Spy I Am.  Hey, it can't possibly be worse that Totally Spies....

Peter G Goes On A Swearing Jag In 3...2...

In the comic shop and I get the latest kick to the balls.

Jane Wheidlen has her own comic book now.

Yes.  The lady from the Go-Go's who has absolutely nothing to do with comics.

So, apparently, if I want to get out of the slush pile, I can't write comics.  I have to do something completely unrelated to comics, and then I can join the ranks of Michael Chiklis, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Trace Adkins, the guy from Fall Out Boy, Jane Wheidlen, and others in getting comic books.
