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 least I think so, allowing for the fact that humor is subjective.
The cartoony characters of Ali Bastur and the giant genie Shakurbuti do lend themselves to less subtle humor than I put into the stories of Humonga or the Gammazon Housewife stories. Of course, variety is the spice of life.
It's an 8 page long story, so it will be longer than any previous "Ali Bastur" story. But it's still a tight little script, accomplishing quite a bit while having comedy on every page. It's got an interesting and amusing dilema for the protagonists to overcome, and I think a clever and fun solution in the end.
Really looking forward to seeing how it turns out. The big drawback of the comic book industry, the final product is now months away.
