About: not another @#$% superhero comic?!
Yeah, I know the genre's been done to death, and then some. But as far as comics are concerned, it's a first love for me. As a kid I always wanted there to be people out there that could fly, stop trains in their tracks and beat the crap out of evil do-ers. Possibly I didn't get out much, but that's another story.
One of my fave scenes in X2 was where Logan and Bobby Drake chatted over a root beer in the x-mansion kitchen (before all hell broke loose!). I prefer 'Slim Jim' depictions of Cyclops and Spiderman rather than mega-muscular versions. I kinda think \skimpy costumes on jumbo breasted women serve no practical purpose. Some of my favorite Batman books are the ones that aren't directly about him (and no, I'm not being sarcastic, I dig Bats) - especially Gotham Central. I love comics that can mix humour, action and real human relationships and emotions. I don't know how much of a picture this paints about where I might be coming from with Magellan but these concepts are pointing me in that direction.
Magellan ties together a number of loose threads for me - old ideas and new ideas and ideas that evolved as I worked with them. When I first started the concept for this story, it's scope was much much smaller than what it has become. Kaycee Jones didn't exist in the original treatment and yet, somehow she has become one of the central characters. As have others, and I hope their stories, as they unfold over the coming months, are entertaining and prove there is still a bit of life left in the superhero genre.
That's all from me - the site is a bit basic at the moment, but I'm hoping it'll grow with the story!
