My journey into the world of comics
The Planet Me comic book is a project that has been brewing in the back of my mind for a few years now. I tend to ruminate over a tiny seed of an idea until it grows into a seedling with real potential. I have always loved and been fascinated by comics since as long as I can remember, which is a huge cliché I know; but it’s true. To this day I still take inspiration from those comics I remember reading as a child including: The Beano, Marvel Comics, Willy the Kid, Peanuts, Asterix, Tintin, Wham!, Judge Dredd, Dan Dare, Manga comics etc.
I took the step to make it happen a little over a year now and the process has been immensely enjoyable and challenging. As I began to combine all my ideas into a single plot, the story grew bigger and more complex. With plenty of pruning and a great deal of care and attention it soon began to blossom.
With a host of intriguing yet somehow believable characters and a few, very British, idiosyncrasies I hope to share the finished book with the world very soon! Watch this space…
