What is it that makes a comic connect with an audience? Is it the writing? The art? The characters? Nope, but also yes….? It’s the passion behind it. And that passion certainly comes across in everything else but you can have the best writer and artist in the world using the most popular characters and have things fall flat if they’re just going through the motions.
Today we’re talking about Ravage with Eli Powell. He certainly has the passion for this story and I’m really excited to get my hands on a physical copy of this one. Be sure to check out the Ravage Kickstarter Campaign so you can get your hands on one as well.
And a big thanks to Mike over at Invader Comics for helping to set this one up.
Learn such things as:
- How long can a project sit between completion and publishing?
- What are some things that go into making a comic with no dialogue?
- Why are artistic choices and sticking to your vision important?
- And so much more!
You can find Eli on Twitter @Savage_Inks, Instagram @instaless_eli, Facebook @shakyartist, and his website Bleak World Comics. And of course you can head over to the Ravage Kickstarter Campaign or tell your local comic shop that you want them to order this for you using code FEB231533.
