“BLANK” is a new comic book title created, written and published by Keith Carmona. It is a new sci-fi comic book dealing with a dark new society of our world.
Creator Keith Carmona gives us some insight to “BLANK”…
“Blank started as a novel focusing on how a society loses words and memory and allows base desires to control their lives. After five years of drafting and redrafting, it seemed the best medium to tell this story was the graphic novel format–a marriage with the words and images depicting a city taken over by a corporation (SynapCorp) which transforms the once pleasant coastal town into a haven for sex and violence. And all completely legal. Our hero, Echs, is one of the few remaining journalists still working in a town without print news and is dependent on sponsors to publish and get paid. Disgusted by what this society has become, and what SynapCorp has done to it, he searches for the history of the city before the corporate takeover and hope to find a way bring it back to what it once was.
Steering a project like this needs the right kind of people at the helm, which why I turned to Scattered Studios. Through it, I was able to enlist the artistic services of Neill Brengettsey for pencils and inks and Mike Stefan for color. These guys are truly amazing, and through them, I hope to bring my first graphic novel to life. ”
With the issue now completed, it will debut at Sac-Con on October 25th, 2015. Artist Neill will be on hand to sign copies of the book with its writer/creator Keith.
Scattered Studios not only wants to create comic books for clients, but continue to follow and support each comic book after it leaves the studio. We at the studio had the pleasure of working with Andrea Molinari on his comic book series “The Shepherd”.
“THE SHEPHERD” is a new comic book series created and written by Andrea Molinari. When first coming to Scattered Studios, Andrea selected Scattered Studio’s Ryan Showers as the Artist and Heather Breckel to be the digital Colorist. And after finishing up the 5-issue series, Molinari began shopping his series to publishers, and very quickly Caliber Comics picked it up.
In hearing the news, the studio contacted Andrea to ask him what was his secret in his success. His response was both surprising and flattering, “I guess a big thing I learned is to trust your art team. Let them be creative. Don’t assume that your way is best. Let them put their spin on your vision. Let it become a group vision not just one person’s idea of what must or should be. My advice, work with this great guy I know. He lives in Sacramento and he will keep all the balls in the air.” (The “guy” reference was to Scattered studio manager Jason Dube).
With this first series already making waves with the public, Andrea is looking ahead to a second series. Already contacting the studio and putting his creative band back together, and looking to finance through a Kickstarter, be sure to watch for more as this series continues to make strides.
Author Saurav Dutt combined forces with Scattered Studios to create an action packed comic book title entitled ‘SWORD’. With a new script, cover, artists and production schedule, work gathers pace on the violent Expendables inspired action novella which features a main character modelled and inspired on action star actor Steven Seagal; whose likeness will also appear in the comic as well.
The Steven Seagal inspired character is a sensei, gifted an ancient samurai sword by his masters in Japan . After opening a dojo in the US, he is attacked by jealous Yakuza drug lords intent on depriving a ‘foreigner’ of the honourable sword and returning it to its rightful place. Left for dead, the main character uses all his martial arts expertise-and background in the Navy Seals, CIA and Black Ops-to get back the sword and inflict a very bloody and furious vengeance ‘Old Boy’ style on those who wronged him.
The writer/creator, Saurav Dutt, is bringing a new artistic direction with his epic novel and has selected his new creative team of Marcelo Salaza to provide the intense and expolsive artwork that will contain intense fight scenes, While Mike Stefan will add his digital coloring. Jason Dube will be providing the text and pre-pres. Hot on the heels of action packed movies like The Expendables starring Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme and Jason Statham, ‘SWORD’ is a throwback to the violent action movies of their era, collating all the one liners, fight scenes, thrills and attitude of Seagal’s best movies like ‘Under Siege’, ‘Out for Justice’ and ‘Marked for Death’.
Saurav commented ‘The idea behind Sword is to provide a story of honour and betrayal, delving into the world of a master swordsman and providing a classic story of vengeance-a very brutal vengeance. I grew up on these movies, films like The Expendables are like being in a candy store-now it’s my turn to create my own spin on the genre-if you’ve enjoyed a Seagal or Van Damme starrer then this is going to deliver that and then some-balls to the wall violence, mayhem, havoc and enough blood to make Kill Bill look like Despicable Me”
Sword continues to be produced by Scattered Studios and after the issue has been completed it will go to a print on demand publisher before being distributed to comic book conventions. Writer/Creator Saurav Dutt has had critical and commercial success writing biographies on major Hollywood actors such as Mickey Rourke, Corey Haim and ‘Jaws’ actor Roy Scheider. He is currently negotiating to interview Top Gun and Batman Forever actor Val Kilmer for an upcoming biography on the ‘Heat’ actor due to release in Spring 2014. His first book of fiction-entitled ‘An Orchid In the Snow’-releases Fall 2013 and follows his first spoken word music project ‘The Dreaming’ available on Soundcloud and CD Baby.
