Cape and Cowl blog: How much do I like Dragon Age Inquisition

A lot.  I just purchased a Xbox One (yeah I know I’m behind on things, don’t hate me), and the first game I bought was DA:I. I just wanted to break in the system and get familiar with the game.  A few weeks later, I’m so engaged in this game that I’ve been pushing back some work on page 8 of SOJ.  I feel really wrong about that but this game is really FUN.  Im using two different characters right now and it’s been pretty cool so far.  I’ve gotten back into the webcomics run today, but just exploring everything take a lot of time but it’s been great.  Let me know which class you like to work with on DA:I and yes, I have updated the script and page 8, so I like what’s in the pipeline.  So stay tuned for more updates and check out The Learning Curve podcast on the site or go on Soundcloud.  You’ll be glad you did!

Be blessed.

Cape and Cowl blog: Cincy Comic Expo Day 1

I had one of the best times since going to the Expo years ago today.  More people than Ive seen on a Friday, very nice celebrity guests and my panel went amazingly well.  I met some really great people that were interested in web comics and hopefully, they’ll like what they see here when they visit the site.  I do feel like I talked too much but overall it was a fun time.  Now, I’m playing Dragon Age: Origins (for like the past two weeks) and getting ready for tomorrow, the BIG day.  Pictures coming soon!

Be blessed

Capes and Cowls Blog: Take my money! Why do I buy comics?

Not to long ago, my adult nephew asked me about getting back into the comic book reading realm.  Sounds great to me, as he’s basically carrying on the comic book tradition in the family.  What made it even more of surprising, is what he asked next: What book should I start off with?  I really hesitated because I didn’t know what he liked.  So I told him to think about what interest him and go with that. It did get me thinking about comics and what makes them interesting enough for me to put down my hard earned money.  There’s several reasons why but I decided on top 3.  So…in reverse order..

3.  Artists/Writers: I like to take chances at times on a comic if I like a new book based on the artwork.  Cover pages are a plus, too because, of course that’s what draws on my curiosity.  I took a chance on the Kato comic book a while ago and I was pleasantly surprised by the results (good story and art).  Overall, I do go back to my favorite artists or writers that may be either working on my current book I’m reading starting on another one that I’ve never read before.  I like to expand my horizons. For me, a good story beats good art if you can’t get both.

2. Price:  This is one that I was thinking on going up to one because it makes sense to me.  I do love Marvel, DC and other companies, but with the prices going up, I had to shave off some really good books that I gave a chance to read out of my budget.  I get that the prices go up but price does make a difference. If I can find a great book that I’m really interested in buying, I would bypass the price once in a while.  The price does matter to me in the long run, however, and if I can find several books for a good price, the better.

1. Interest in the character(s):  Nothing makes me want to buy a comic more than seeing what lies ahead for the characters involved.  Whether hearing about it on social media or the comic book store, Story driven characters have always been the best part of buying them.  I like to see what happens to the good guys and the bad, always hoping that the story continues and looking forward to the end of the stories.  These inspired me to create my own characters and stories for my web comics and i’m grateful for it.

Be blessed.
