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.

“Fuck alternative R&B!” FKA Twigs told UK newspaper The Guardian last month. The popstar was clearly distressed by the journalist’s question of how she felt about constant comparison to other “alt R&B” singers such as Banks and Kelela, insisting that her music has more in common with “punk” than it does the neo-generic term that’s been applied to any 2010s R&B-related music that indie publications feel comfortable writing about. “When I first released music and no one knew what I looked like, I would read comments like: ‘I’ve never heard anything like this before, it’s not in a genre,’” she continued. “And then my picture came out six months later, now she’s an R&B singer. I share certain sonic threads with classical music; my song “Preface” is like a hymn. So let’s talk about that. If I was white and blonde and said I went to church all the time, you’d be talking about the ‘choral aspect’. But you’re not talking about that because I’m a mixed-race girl from south London.”

Gender and Sexuality In My Dumb Little Comics

johnathonolyon:

johnathonolyon:

Confession time. I obsess over a lot of things when writing comics. The tone. Figuring out how the hell pacing works. Dialogue. Mostly the dialogue. But there’s something I’ve noticed I’ve been thinking about a ton lately. And that’s characters’ gender and sexual preference.

Now before, even up…

It seriously makes me so happy that I still get positive emails and messages about this post. It’s a problem I see so goddamn often, and it’s something I want to play at least some part in changing/destroying.

My life goals are, in chronological order:

1) Quickly rise through the comic book-making ranks until I have reached complete comic industry domination.

2) Recreate the industry to be one that fully embraces diversity, through both my unbelievably popular comics and very reasonable Gestapo tactics.

3) Buy a rocket ship full of Reece’s cups.

Also, the lead character in the upcoming comic I wrote, Neon Noir, is both bisexual and androgynous, which is seriously the most exciting part of making the book for me.

I know it’s not much, and I’m not about to change any lives with it, but to be able to represent people that almost never get that sort of representation, and with such an awesome character, makes me feel something I almost never feel l about my writing.

Pride.

So as some of you may be aware, I was away for the long weekend on a camping holiday for my buddy’s 21st birthday. two days of intense rambling up and around the Castleton, Edale and Mam Tor areas.

on the last day we wound things down a bit and found some flat land in a local park to play some football (soccer, whatever) then boom, crunch, crackle, snap and pop my knee cap exploded to the right and left a big old hole where it should be. three days later I’m back home awaiting a diagnosis via MRI after visiting multiple hospitals and clinics all of which can only afford to perform MRIs on one day per week and are fully booked.

So long story short, Don’t dislocate your kneecap. It just pushes back your schedule.

So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.

Hey! 200th post on tumblr!
Let’s party like it’s 1980-something. By checking out this really fucking big panel from me and Michael Kennedy’s upcoming short comic – Neon Noir.
This is Geri. She’s a bit of an arcade cabinet philosopher. And a bit of an awesome person.

A Couple Neon Noir Questions (And Answers, I Guess)

johnathonolyon:

octoberland said: I have questions! Will it be a print comic? Indie print or from an imprint? Will it be available through Diamond? Sorry if you’ve already said this stuff.

Neon Noir's a ten-page short that Michael Kennedy and I created for the sole purpose of getting a really…

I am holding in my hands a (test) copy of a comic book that I wrote.

ROZ KIRBY: Have you been satisfied with what you’ve done?

KIRBY: Have I been satisfied with what I’ve done?

GROTH: Yeah.

KIRBY: If I’ve done it myself, I’ve always been satisfied. If somebody interfered, it always created a bad period in my life.

GROTH: What was the most creatively rewarding period in your career?

KIRBY: I believe when I was given full rein on The New Gods. I was given full rein on The New Gods, and I was given full rein on Mr. Miracle. Mr. Miracle was a fine strip. I was given full rein on many other strips, which sold extremely well and made me very happy. I was happy doing them because as a professional, you’ve got to take the credit for it, or you’ve got to take the, beating for it. I don’t like to take a beating without being responsible.


GROTH: You don’t want to take somebody else’s beating.

KIRBY: I don’t want to take somebody else’s beating. That makes me unhappy. So right now, I can tell you, I’m a happy man because whatever I’m doing, I do for myself and I do a little creating here and there for others, and they work out very well. I feel like an independent man, and I am. This is the kind of feeling I always wanted. You can rarely get that… Well, I could rarely get that in the early part of my life.

GROTH: I think most people can rarely get that. You have to fight for it.

KIRBY: Yes.
