Dream Life, Just drive she said, being fiction, and time to submit!

Got a bit of nice press the last 48 hours, lot of people tweeting up the comics, thanks Karl Dwight and Jack to name a few instigators.

Also the guys at Robot 6 have been really supportive of Dream Life for a while now, posted a nice little thing about the start of Act 2 here.

And an interview a did in November last year has been posted, local radio show Les Mystérieux étonnants posted a clip here I’m part of, I’ve made a short version highlighting my bit that you can watch bellow here. As usual i’m less than happy with my ham-fisted responses, hard to be as eloquent as i’d like after talking to teen fan boys all day. My voice was pretty blown out by the time Benoit talked to me here. Slurring my words a lot. Also already was starting to feel the nasty con-bug setting in by this time, laid me up for a week after. Ug.

That’s what I get for shaking that 15 year old Rorschach’s hand.

One thing i feel like clarifying is, i’m not exactly against genre, just letting it drive the story. And the rather blatant leave little up to the imagination put it all out there way it’s written in American Comics a lot of the time. Was talking with Ange about this, we watched the new Being Human series shot here in Montreal.

A good theater friend of her’s is in it, Alison Louder, playing Josh the werewolf’s sister. We watched the BBC series pretty avidly, and comparing, the new one is good, i’m liking it though a lot of that is the familiarity, seeing my town on the tube. But you can’t help notice how much faster they are rushing along in the telling. Not taking as long to build up the personalities at all. Spelling things out much more, rather than letting time pass and you just glean things from their happening. More tell, less show than in the original.

This is what seems to happen in most Genre fiction this side of the Atlantic. Probably elsewhere too, but something that makes most of the good BBC stuff good, is their knack for not doing that as much.

And it’s avoiding that i’m most keen on with Dream Life. I want this story to play out, not be spelled out. You know?

Anywho, on with the interview.

And last but not least of all, i recently started putting on an editors cap for chores at carte blanche. As such it’s my duty to inform all doodlers, The next Bi-annual deadline for submissions of graphic fiction to be published in the spring 2011 – 13th edition – of carte blanche is March 15th! You have 53 days to submit!

  1. The high gas prices have sort of stabled off and to me it seems that people have just accepted it

  2. The Stuhrling watches expose weight a discrepancy of styles from prevalent to now.
