I will start by saying,that i wanted to do this project since early 2011,the whole idea came out by then.Unfortunatly i was stopped by the fact that i didnt have the skill,the time,and the inspiration to pull it off.Now starting from late 2012 i decided to put this thing in motion,having finaly gained good enought skill,getting a solid style and getting more ovrall idea of the stories i can introduce.
The FAN COMIC I want to do is on Marvel's infamous X-MEN.It all started from me designing the costume of the x-men based on the New X-men,Ultimate,Movie,and Jim Lee style uniformes,and then the rest came to me.
Story wise i decided to base myself on the 90's X-men,since they were the ones i growd with and that i consider the best era's in x-men to date!
As of the project's progress i decided to start with a PREQUEL COMIC you could also call it issue 0.1.IT will be composed of 10 pages
in wich the introduction of the series will reside.
Here IS THE COVER AND A PAGE PREVIEW
SO HERE'S WHAT I WANT FROM YOU MY FRIENDS:
1) For starters I want a WRITER,or better,someone that has a GREAT KNOLEDGE OF THE X-MEN HYSTORY and THE WAY THEY TALK(example rogue,gambit beast).I want to make this as loyal to the source and as enjoyable as possible
2)FOR THE ARTISTS:I want to make a colective grouping of VARIANT COVERS!Yeah you heard me,VARIANT COVERS!
EVERYONE IS INVITED,But only the most well made one will be prized!
Wait did I hear PRIZED!?YEP!Im planing on givin 900 points to the best variant cover made!
THE OTHERS WONT BE IGNORED! INFACT I WILL OPEN A FOLDER OF ALL THE OTHER VARIANTS POSTED AND THE TO 10 WILL BE EXPOSED ON MY WALL,I WILL MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE KNOWN!
SO FOR THE VARIANTS HERE ARE THE RULES!!!
1)The artist must rapresent the folowing characters:CYCLOPS,ROGUE,WOLVERINE,BEAST,ICEMAN & GAMBIT
2)The costume designs i made MUST be kept the same!No Xeptions
3)You can rapresent whoever of the characters from the six you want,even doing only one of them
4)You can make the characters do anything you want exept for any sign of nudity,erotism(exept a sexy posed rogue),no gay stuff or just perverted!I dont want that and i wont count it as a part of the project at all!
5)It has to be in an A4 format and the best quality you can get!
6)You MUST LEAVE SPACE FOR THE TITLE(I wont ad the "PREQUEL" thing, i will add a 0.1 close to the title).
RELEASE DATES AND VARIANT END-DATE
So for the comics per se im still working on it,so i cant tell for sure when i will start relaesing it.It will probably come way before the X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST movie coming out on MAY.I will release a page per month.That way i will keep it interesting since there are 10 pages of x-men goodness panning out!
For the variant i want to close it in FEBRUARY!
That way i can work on puting the tittle on your GLORIOUS WORKS!
