Very excited today. In February, my first ever comic pitch was accepted by Grayhaven Comics for their anti-bullying anthology, You Are Not Alone. And there was much excitement and cheering throughout the land. I love love love comics. I’ll admit, I tend to read more of the “Big 2” than anything else but can’t help but resonate the sense of hope, that good will triumph etc. (though I HAVE been working on expanding my reading to more independents). The opportunity to pitch a comic is part of a dream come true. It’s even on my bucket list. I’m also really proud that my desire meshed so well with such a great cause.
Created in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, the editors highlighted their reasoning in a simple, yet powerful message: “t put that to use in a beneficial way?” I couldn’t agree more, which is why I am particularly proud to contribute to the YANA anthology. The story I wrote is actually based on an anecdote told by a good friend. 🙂 I thought it particularly fitting. Today, I just saw the first sample page. The art is from Luiz Campello and is, to be frank, amazing. He put heart and emotion into the story. I’m very very excited to see this project move forward.
