It’s all in the hours, yo

Hey folks,

As we get closer to hitting our funding goal for Mixmancer, I’ve started putting together all my scripts for the “Script Selector” reward level. This will feature the script for Mixmancer, as well as at least 7 others that I’ve written over the last 7 years.

I just finished reformatting one from 2008, and it gave me quite a laugh. Chris Lewis ca. 2008 was waaaay into hitting the return key to get to the next page of the document. He also like using captions. A lot. I decided to reformat it to make it look (and read) like my current scripts, but I haven’t changed any dialogue or panel descriptions in order to make it look like I knew what I was doing back then. Because, really, I didn’t. The story, Little Earth People, was the first miniseries I wrote. A slightly altered version also saw the light of day in 2009 as part of DC’s Zuda competition. Check out that Joe Pekar art!


It would take hundreds of more hours at the computer before I would get to the point of being able to write something like Mixmancer, or my book Drones that is coming out in April via IDW and Comics Experience. Sometime in the intervening years I also figured out how to add page breaks.

In addition to LEP, you’ll see my script for the Intro To Comics Writing course from Comics Experience. That will take us to some Azkaban fan fiction that was also developed as part of the Comics Experience Creators Workshop (and which still cracks me up). Then it’s time for the first issue of Drones, the short story I contributed to the psychedelic Imaginary Drugs anthology (IDW), and two current projects I’m incredibly proud of.

Looking at these scripts, I realize they tell the story of my development as a writer. Sharing and remixing stories is at the heart of Mixmancer, and I’m excited to share this one with you.

Bro-hugs to all,

Interview at THE BEAT

Matt O’Keefe was kind enough to make me look good in this interview.

Artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer did a pinup for the MIXMANCER Kickstarter. Here’s a process piece from layout to colors:

I’m in love with this hip-hop hipster chick. So glad he went with her rather than the dude he originally planned on drawing.

We’ve got more MIXMANCER pinups available at all reward levels $5 and higher. You can check ‘em out here. Thanks!

Creating a kick-ass logo is easy…

…just hire Yannick Fortin, graphic designer and Canadian extraordinaire!

A lot of people have been asking me who designed the logo for my new book MIXMANCER. Well, I was chatting with my editor Yannick Morin, and he introduced me to a friend of his. This is how the conversation went:

Yannick, je te présente Chris, un très bon ami à moi et un auteur qui n’en est pas à son premier comic. Il a besoin d’un logo pour son comic MIXMANCER, une histoire assez pétée de DJ cosmique qui peut remixer des hsitoires pour changer le monde. Pense rave+ psychédélique + métaphysique.

I said, “yeah, what Yannick said,” because I don’t understand that crazy talk. Then I wrote back to say, “please add some hip-hop to whatever it is you’re doing.”

Yannick (Fortin, not Morin) came back to me about a week later with this:

MM LogoSuch a 70s piece of funky fresh pop – It was love at first sight.

But I’m a greedy bastard and I wanted more! I asked Yannick to try out a horizontal version to see if it would fit better with the cover of the book. This is what he delivered:

logo-MIXMANCER-FINALAnd that’s the version we ultimately ended up going with. You can check out Yannick’s logo and the final cover over on the MIXMANCER Kickstarter page.

Creating a good logo is tough work – especially when your briefing is in French. So if you find yourself in need of a graphic design genius, a guy who can morph one idea into two equally attractive logos, give Yannick Fortin a ring.

Examples of Yannick’s work, as well as his contact information, can be found here.
