Mark Heike, editor of AC Comics writes some stuff that leaves me INCREDIBLY flattered in this article he put on the AC website.
The first few sentences are about the FemForce chraracter Stardust, and then the rest of the article sorta becomes about "the writing of Eric Johnson."
Feel free to read the article and find out why I was blushing yesterday.

Just got the thumbs-up from Mark Heike on a new script.
Mark asked me to write more scripts featuring the main FemForce characters. Now, this isn't the first time I've written non-giantess material for AC. Previously, I've written the dialogue on two Yankee Girl stories, and did a two-part story with She-Cat, Ms. Masque, and Firebeam. But this is part of a shift where I've been told I should feel more free to write side stories with the FemForce main characters and subm...Read Full Post »

Well, I've long neglected my little website here.
But, I managed tonight to update the links on all the comic book issue pages. Everything has been re-pointed to the correct links, required because AC comics did a big revamp not to long ago. Check out the new AC website, they've got spaces for comments on every single back issue.
New page entry for FemForce #156 also posted.
Pretty soon, I'll do some reorganizing of the Commissioned Art section, and a...Read Full Post »

Check out this post by AC Editor Mark Heike on the AC website:
In this news item, Mark partly answers the question "What does a comic book editor do?" with an example.
You'll see how Mark advises artist Dan Gorman to alter his approach to drawing page one of an upcoming story I wrote. It's a great example of the collobrative nature of comic book production, as Mark advises Dan to deviate from drawing exactly what I wrote, and re-in...Read Full Post »

Diamond Previews DCD Number NOV100686
For anyone who cares:
The upcoming issue of FemForce, issue #155, will have two stories with my input.
One is a Yankee Girl story, plotted and drawn by an Italian artist (Gianluca Cerritelli), then I provided the dialogue script. Gianluca had a basic script, but his english isn't the greatest. And editor Mark Heike wanted me to "punch up the sc...Read Full Post »

Just got a new script accepted by AC Comics and my editor is sending it off to the artist! Well, it's not a NEW script, it's actually the oldest script I've written for AC that's still unpublished. It's THAT script, the one which has gone through more drafts than ANYTHING I've ever written before.
And boy, did Mark Heike and I go back and forth, hammering out the issues he saw with it. In the end, we had both back-burnered it...Read Full Post »

New section to the web site, for highlighted pieces of commissioned artwork, as appropriate to the website.
Opening up with the efforts of two talented artists: Jean Sinclair from Brazil, who I've been buying commissions from for years, and Eric Alan Nelson, who's drawn two stories for AC Comics, and soon to be published with Avatar Comics.

Well, I'm going to admit I totally neglected my commitment to keep this blog up.
But, I have been doing some writing every day. Private writing exercises on a very regular schedule. So, there is that...
Work and other stuff has been very time-occupying lately. I have gotten a little progress on a script for AC. And I have some other nibbles on other projects.
Hope to have news and more significant stuff to post soon...Read Full Post »

Mark Heike, the editor at AC Comics accepted the script I mailed him this morning.
And he's already assigned it to the artist I preferred for the project.
I probably shouldn't reveal anything substantial about it. Not my place. Should wait for the AC sales blurbs to come out.
But I'm sure it's okay to say it's another "Ali Bastur and her Forty Feet" story.
It may also be my most laugh-out-loud funny script yet. At le...Read Full Post »
