Hi all, I've been working on a comic strip based on the movies of silent filmmaker Georges Melies. The idea is that these strips are the films of his that got destroyed. I'd love it if someone could check it out and give feedback!
Interestingly esoteric comic. I only know Melies from his classic Moon film, and wasn't aware of his other works. Definite dreamlike quality to the stories, and a woodcut quality to the art I like. The Queen in the first issue was giving me a weird Wonder Woman vibe, though.
Hey, thanks everyone! Kewangji: I am, I did a prologue that's up on the site now, and I plan to do more. rhomboidal: "Dreamlike" is exactly what I was going for, and "woodcut" is an added bonus. Age of Fable: Technically I shouldn't use title cards at all, it should all just be silent, and the perspective should never change. The smoke is a good idea tho.
The idea was to capture that weird feel of fly-by-night Golden Age comics, where not much was explained, the whole thing is kind of creepy and intense even though the art is amateurish, and the character is never seen again after one issue. Like one of the 10,000 Batman ripoffs in the 1940s who killed vampires. Loosely in the style of Fletcher Hanks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fletcher_Hanks).
