GLoW 1: The Reviews Are In!

... and they all have something nice to say!


The fine people of Comics Anonymous were first, with their Craig Hastie awarding the book 7/10 and remarking:

"Having seen the quality of some of the members’ individual creations it was no surprise that a product with all of them involved would have the same high standard attached".

Niall Doonan at Comicbuzz gave it 7/10, and said:

"...a lot to enjoy; I laughed out loud and was genuinely surprised by some of the endings."


Over at the Forbidden Planet International blog, Richard had a few more criticisms, and had this to say:

"Glow #1 is good, solid stuff, but it just feels a touch uninspired to me now."

Thanks for all the feedback, guys! It bodes well for the upcoming digital release of GLoW 1 to the masses! If you're a comic blogger reviewer-type person who'd like a peak at a review copy, get in touch!

GLoW triumph at the SICBA's


Woke up this morning to the amazing news that my Glasgow League of Writers buddies won big at the Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards last night.

Gordon McLean took the Best Comic Award for No More Heroes and John Lees took the Best Writer Award for his work on The Standard amongst others.

It rounded off what was a fantastic day for GLoW and what has been an amazing year. When I started the group and sat down at the very first meeting I didn’t know then that two of the faces staring back at me would go on to be award winning writers.

Gordon’s No More Heroes was one of the very first scripts we workshopped at GLoW and while we can’t take any credit for making it better (it already was great) it holds special memories for us all.

To see a comic go from script to concept art to roughs and on to finished art. To see the completed comic, read the reviews and then watch it become an award winner is very special indeed.

Gordon is a top bloke and too big a talent for comics to hold. Watch out for an amazing film project soon and some other projects.

John Lees took the award for best writer. Certainly, the best unsigned writer in the UK at the moment. If you don’t know his name or his work at the moment, then mark it well. You will soon enough.

John manages all of this by being a genuinely nice guy and has remained so for the time I’ve known him. You could trust him with your wife, your wallet, your kids and your dogs. Hell, you could even trust him with your comic collection!  No one deserves their award more than John.

I'm proud that both of them are members of GLoW and have both played a major part of it being what it is and I'm proud that my friends got the recognition they deserve. Well done guys,

GLoW 1 – our anthology was a resounding success at the Glasgow Comic Con and features the work of both award winners.

How I Learned To Stop Putting Things Off And Love The Grind

I hate writing.

Seriously.

Not the fun part, of course. Everyone loves the plotting, the brainstorming, the throwing ideas against a wall to see if they stick. That part is capital-A Awesome, and is covered amazingly well by Garry McLaughlin over here. No, the part I hate is the actual physical act. Sitting down in front of a computer with a blank word document open, knowing that the next few hours of my life will be devoted to transferring the solid gold in my head on to the page in front of me, where it undergoes some reverse-Midas transmogrification into barely acceptable dialogue and clumsy panel descriptions.

It's not writing I hate, really, it's typing. It's order and formatting. When you're all plot-happy in your head everything is quite nebulous and free-flowing. Once you start typing you need to start applying rules and standardising everything. You need to watch your spelling and your grammar, and that's not half as fun as scripting your main character's oh-so-witty verbal tete-a-tete with the primary antagonist. The trouble is, the typing, the formatting, the standardisation, right down to the spelling and grammar - it's all just as important as the fun stuff, and might even get the fun stuff published somewhere. So here's my take on how to beat the overwhelming lethargy that comes as the price of productivity. Procrastination-busting 101 or How I Learned To Stop Putting Things Off And Love The Grind.

The first thing to remember is that you’ve done the lion’s share of the work already. You have the ideas, you know your story. All you need to do is get it out of your head and you’re home free. This is nothing but a sacrifice to the gods of productivity, and when you’re finished you’ll have written something. The typing might be arduous, but the satisfaction from having a complete piece of work ready to go is immense. So don’t go into your next typing stint with dread. Look at it as the last lap before the finish line. You’re about to be a writer.

If you use any of my personal methods, it may well be this next one, because it skirts dangerously close to procrastination. Here goes. If you know you’re going to write something soon, say, within a day, and you know the thought is awful, then you need to get inspired. For me, this consists of watching The West Wing or the Wire or reading anything by Grant Morrison. Expose yourself to the writing that made you want to write. Think about being that person, who wrote that thing. I’m a competitive sort, so I imagine being in competition with these guys. Sorkin, Morrison…they’re who I’m out to beat, and I’m WAY behind schedule. If you can avoid getting sucked in to your chosen inspiration, this one can work wonders.

For me, the biggest obstacle to writing is Time. Between working full time and having a general life that doesn’t involve a computer screen, the time to commit 24 pages of comic to screen is often in short supply, so the only real option is to exploit any time you have to write to its fullest. Spare hour? An hour is better than nothing. Train journey? Bust out the notepad. Even if you can only do a little here and there, all the littles add up to a lot and the long road is better than no road at all. Write what you can, when you can.

My last point is related to presentation, and I think it’s an important one. Any of us who aspire to be professional writers are going to have to submit work to an editor. We’ll be weighed, measured and often found wanting, so the most important thing is to show ourselves in the best possible light. That’s where the formatting and the standardising and the spelling and the grammar come in. Submitting work to an editor is like going for a job interview. The first thing an interviewer is going to know about you when you walk in that door is how you look, and they’ll draw inferences from that. Turn up unkempt and scruffy and you’ll just appear disinterested and unreliable. The same thing applies to your written work. Spelling mistakes, misuse of punctuation and a lack of consistent formatting are all going to make your work look messy, make you look uninterested in it. If YOU don’t care about you work, why should anyone else? So the next time you’re dreading sitting down at the computer to write your next script, think of it like you’re getting ready to interview for your dream job. Shine your shoes, iron your shirt and put your best foot forward. You know you can do this job, you don’t need the convincing. If you give yourself the best possible chance and present yourself as well as you can, no one else will need convincing either.

The typing isn’t a chore, really. It’s more of a distillation of all your ideas, creativity and potential, and if you throw yourself into that final process with as much enthusiasm as the brainstorming then the rewards can be huge.

Now go write!

Making Comics - Plotting is all in the mind


I've been thinking a lot about writing recently, mainly because I've been "doing" a lot of it. I've been thinking that the word "writer" is a kind of inadequate word sometimes, given that the actual act of writing is only a small part of creating a story.

I thought I'd offer up some of my thoughts regarding the art of plotting while I write the script for issue 3 of my forthcoming creator-owned work, Gonzo Cosmic. Once upon a time, the art of writing was really elusive to me. It was a world of esoteric meaning, full of pitfalls and traps, because I didn't understand the art form. I read 'how-to' books, and tried to shoehorn ideas into stories, mangling characterisation and over-using structure. That was, I think, because I didn't have a lot of confidence in my authenticity as a writer.

However, as I practised it, and made many mistakes along the way, I learned to trust myself more as a writer, and once I did, I realised I was actually physically writing a lot less.

See, the thing is, the main meat of writing comics is plotting, same as it is in film and drama. I think it's slightly less similar in novel-writing, but it's still an important part of the process. However, in comic booking, plotting is everything. Starting off with an idea - a good idea, hopefully, the one no one else is doing - you must daydream the story. If you've got a good story brewing, every spare second of your day where you can afford to daydream will be spent thinking about that next awkward action scene, or working out how to not break your own internal consistency.

If you try to struggle with this on paper, I believe, you'll find yourself regularly battering your head off a metaphorical wall. There's a sense of wanting to "get it right", and if you don't have the plot in your head first, that's going to mean a lot of scribbling, a lot of scrubbing out, a lot of crumpled sheets of paper. And all that gets you is demotivated...

If however you plot the story out in your head, it becomes much easier. I don't mean mapping out pages and panels here by the way: I mean working through the story from start to finish. Working out how one scene segues into another. Tackling the ideas you know you need to cover in the specific issue, dealing with the arcs your characters need to take. It's like watching a movie of your story, but it's also NOT a mental movie. The assets you're dealing with are elastic and pliable when you're working things out in your mind - nothing is fixed, and you can shift time and pace and place and people without redrafting or correcting anything.

It's your very own infinitely variable sandbox, and yet when we start out, we rarely use it the way we should. We think that to be a writer means we need to sit down and WRITE. That somehow putting pen to paper will make the ideas flow. Then we worry when they don't come - when we sit there with a blank page or worse, a page with a paragraph of gibberish on it, and we think we're not cut out for this.

But here's the thing, the important thing: more often than not, writing is about ideas, not technique. A poor writer can have incredible ideas, but fantastic writing with generic, banal concepts and nothing to say is hollow.

So here's my tip for anyone starting out writing comics: work on your ideas. Cook them up in your skull until they're sparkling like diamonds and hot like volcanoes, ready to burst out of you. You can work on your technique, you can get critique that helps you to organise your mind on the page. You can read scripts by your favourite writers, and crib some of their techniques, analysing how they do what they do, before you find the confidence to use your own voice and style.

But plot, plot, plot in your head. Work out that story so well that you know EXACTLY what's going to happen, even if the method of telling it changes slightly. I guarantee if you do this, when it comes to writing it down, it'll feel much easier.

Good morning world!
Just a quick update this week; it's just been a hugely busy time around here! With so many things on the go in so many directions... I just wish I could sit and tell you about half of them. (But more on that later. Honest.)

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night, people!
 
Taking centre-stage this week we've got an article from "No-More-Heroes" writer Gordon MacLean.
 
 
Enjoy!

Waste Not, Want Not
By Gordon Mclean
 
 
Digital piracy – it’s the comic book industry’s biggest hot button, rivalled only by creator rights. To most it’s a nasty little troll eating the business from the inside out, drastically hurting sales, stealing money from everyone’s pockets and is all the more despised because it’s doing it out in the open without fear of reprise. There’s hundreds of sites offering the latest comics for illegal consumption the day they go on sale and like an electronic hydra if you take down one another two sites spring up on another server in the time it takes to read the latest Batman. In fact, maybe piracy is not merely a “troll” but rather a Terminator! It cannot be bargained with, it cannot be reasoned with and it will not stop until the industry is dead.
 Some defend it as a means of reading out-of-print material (how else you gonna read Grant Morrison’s Zenith?), a way for poorer comic fans to get hold of their favourite titles or for others to see what’s out there before reaching into their pockets. How many pay for what they’ve already read for free? No one can offer solid numbers. Anyone thinking of investigating this matter might as well attempt to count all the fish in the sea – they’d probably have more success with that.
 I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about piracy recently because the little troll came directly into my house and made a mess. The first issue of my debut comic No More Heroes launched a couple of weeks ago to a warm reception. Too warm, as it went on to become one of the “Top Torrents” on illegal download sites, nestled amongst the likes of Batman and The Walking Dead.
 When I was alerted to this and visited these sites I saw that NMH had been downloaded over 2000 times and counting. My first thought was “All those sales!” You see, NMH was completely self-funded. I used a mixture of my redundancy money (having recently lost my job) and the cash raised from selling my collection of Playstation games to cover all the costs of getting the comic into print. If everyone who’d downloaded it had given us just one quid it would’ve covered all those costs and allowed us to earn a wage for all the work we’d put into the title. Surely that’s fair and something everyone is entitled to? Tell that to the pirates.
 What to do? Curse and swear? Lament my loss? Pretend the troll didn’t exist? No. I was going to use this. I was going to get something out of this crappy situation. I brewed up a strong cup of coffee, blasted out some loud music and went to work on a press release detailing how a self-published small press title created by a couple of unknowns and with no advertising was now one of the most popular comics of the week: the numbers on the pirate sites proved this. I sent the press release everywhere!
 And it worked! A number of comic sites picked it up and ran it. Emails came in asking for interviews. Best of all, when Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool put the article on his site it lead to a thread on the BC forum filled with messages of support and people encouraging each other to help us out and buy a copy. It was incredibly heartening and really showed the positives of online comic book fandom – there’s so much more to the World Wide Web than bitter creators and merciless pirates snarling at each other.
 Here’s the moral of the story: everything can be used to help your comic book if you’re ready to put the work in. In this case we used all those lost sales and tried to get as much publicity from them as possible – not exactly a fair trade, but something at least. Now a lot more people know about us and No More Heroes, plus we got some sales off the back of it.
 When you’re at the bottom of the industry ladder shout about everything until the people further up notice you.

Hey there people! 
How've you been? Good? Yeah, I know it's been a while... my bad! In my defence though there's been a whole load of stuff going down since the last time we spoke. But then again, don't take my word for it... 

First up; the long awaited and mind-blowingly great "No More Heroes #1" written by Gordon McLean with art from Caio Oliveira is now out there for your torrenting pleasure. Already hailed as an 'overnight success'; if you haven't got your hands on it already, do it! Do yourself a favour.
The Official No-More-Heroes Page




Next up is the release of "Taking Flight" #1 written by Stephen Sutherland with art from Garry McLaughlin. With the original "black and white" run selling out, you can (and should!) still get your hands on a digital copy here if you just can't wait (which you shouldn't!) for the full colour copies making their way to shelves in April.


Also, this week saw the latest instalment in the ArseCancer Epic (Yes, in this case 'Epic' deserves the capital letter.)
Check it out here...

And of course the mighty Jonbot vs. Martha.
Which is over here...

Oh and by the way; you can check back here every Tuesday from now on for your weekly GLoW dosage. If by any freak occurence I don't post (i.e. death, dismemberment or momentary amnesia) then just give me a kick in the shins or hit me up on Twitter @JMcCusker24
Deal?

...

Cool.

Hello again children of the Internet!
Just a quick post to mention a few things I forgot to mention on Monday's post...

First off the bat, is the recent release of the new e-book from the one and only Luke J Halsall.
Titled 'Payback', this is the second installment of the incredible Sam o Hara and Jessica McIntyre thriller series and if you haven't checked it out before now, you can get a sneak preview of the first three chapters by following the link below. You'll be glad you did!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0078JY692#reader_B0078JY692

Next up is a little look-ahead at great things coming from 'Big Bad' John Clarke; here's a page from 'Geoffrey' a short horror story that is going to be part of a 'GLoW: Horror Anthology' coming your way later this year. (More on this later!)
I have to be honest, I've read the script for this and I have to say it's going to be fantastic.

As I'm writing this, there's also a whole load of stuff I really want to show-and-tell to you all about a little thing called Project: Lazarus coming out a little later on as well... but I can't.
See it's really not in my nature to be mysterious, but I can't talk about it.
And I can't talk about why.
*cue dramatic music*

Next up is the one and only Gordon McLean's ongoing short film project 'Dying Light'.

Aside from telling you that it will be coming to us from an award-winning crew of film makers (2009 Bafta Scotland New Talent Award for Multimedia) who have produced numerous short films and TV content for the likes of BBC Scotland, Scottish Screen, the UK Film Council, STV to name a few, I don't think I need to say much more about it... 
It looks amazingly good. Just look at that poster!
