MEMORY BOY

johnathonolyon:

In case you were wondering who the inspiration was for (Neon Noir's main character) Bowie's look. 

I had no idea going into the book if themichaelkennedy could somehow pull off us having a gender-neutral lead. When Mike sent me the top image from (if I remember correctly) an old french film magazine to see if it was anything like what I had in mind for Bowie, I could’ve swam the few thousand miles separating us just to hug the shit out of him.

That man can read my fuckin’ mind.

(As always, you can check out Neon Noir for free, RIGHT HERE.)

haha you kept the picture! yeah it was Natassjia Kinski (right spelling??) .Yeah its a pretty influential image for me in general, Neon Noir presented a useful application for it.

Don’t usually post hauls but I was super impressed by what i got for my money. Picked all this up during a rare visit to nostalgia and comics  Its technically my local but I’m a poor student.
Modesty Blaise: Bad Suki
A collection of stories from the Modesty Blaise comic strip which is very much a national treasure in comic art IMO, anyways Lots of artist featured but Jim Holdaway pretty much bossed everyone in the art game here until his death , so a volume of his work is a steal at a fiver.

ALIAS: The Underneath
Classic Bendis with Michael Gaydos who I’ve recently been converted to by way of his work on ZERO. Looks good during a flick through so I have high hopes.

Love and Rockets:Las Mujeres Perdidas
£3, Hernandez brothers, Not much else needs saying other than I might go back for the other volumes.

Time To Make The Comics: Tip #12

To save myself a good 36 tweets, I’ll just talk about this on tumblr :) Been meaning to write this post for a while anyway.

I use a pretty weird semi-full script, screenplay-esque format written in Final Draft 8. (Unless you really love fullscreen, maybe don’t bother with Final Draft 9.)

So…

tumblr reblog cuts out the juicy stuff so clickety click people.

Roman Polanski’s arguably only romance film, Tess, is one his critically best accepted works, and the performance of 18-year-old Nastassja Kinski, along with Paris, Texas, is probably the high point of her career. “Without Mr. Polanski’s name in the credits,” wittily stated the New York Times, “this lush and scenic Tess could even be mistaken for the work of David Lean.” This great compliment is wholeheartedly justified–Polanski created one of the best literary adaptations to date. His inspiring vision of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles was greatly empowered by the terrific screenplay he was helped to write by Gerard Brach and John Brownjohn. Interested to see what makes for a truly great adaptation of a 19th century classic? Take a look at this scarce screenplay we were lucky enough to stumble upon.
Roman Polanski’s Tess is a work of great pastoral beauty as well as vivid storytelling

I promised pics once my physical copy arrived.  Sorry, John, no series of nearly amused but mostly disappointed reaction selfies.  Just REALLY HAPPY reaction selfies.

Buy a copy, y’all.  The afterword is totally worth it.  And the book itself.  I mean.  Seriously.

Also new comics smell.  That shit is my drug.

MAKING COMICS IS DUH BEST :)

Story for the Dundee Comics Prize 2014.

wanted to do a ‘les enfants terrible’ MGS type of story about a scientist who bases an ‘agency’s’ two super soldiers on his dead daughters and ultimately fathers them and protects them during their AWOL.

couldn’t quite grasp the narrative so abandoned for now.

Last art post before Neon Noir landed.

Mike, I just realized, can you even imagine how fucking awesome it would be if we got the chance to do a Metal Gear Solid comic?

Like, how stupidly perfect would that be??

Although, I would finally have to make sense of that goddamn plot…

But seriously, who do we have to talk to to make this happen.

Have you read "Neon Noir" by Johnathon O.Lyon and Michael Kennedy? It’s a gorgeous thing. And it’s only 10 pages in length!

I’ve finally got my hands on finishing the review of this little piece of art. I may state, that this short story got me thinking about…

Click here if the original links don’t show on my blog (blame my theme)

Hey! I'm the dude that wrote that Neon Noir comic. Just wanted to thank ya for the signal boost! We made the comic for the sole purpose of being able to release it for free so as many people as possible could check it out and (maybe? Hopefully?) enjoy it. And you gals and guys have helped out a shit-ton with that goal. So keep up the always phenomenal work, and just keep being the beautiful bastards that you are.
