DemonHanzo's Make Your Own Comic Book: A self Journey To Making A Comic Pt.1

Make Your Own Comic Book: The Beginning

Ever since I picked up my first Comic book I was mesmerized by its contents. I would spend hours absorbed by the contents contained with in. The story never concerned me back then as I couldn't read half of it - Give me a break I was only 6 - I was captivated by the pictures within. Two mountainous forces meeting to do battle to decide the fate of world. I was hooked. Then another thing happened shortly after the thrill of the epic battle wore off. I realized that someone had drawn this. I drew pictures all the time and promised myself I would draw all the time. This comic I held in my hand opened a new universe, one in which I proudly stated "I have to make a comic book of my own."

I believe a lot of would be aspiring cartoonists made similar oaths to their younger selves. The problem was most of us didn't know how to go about making these things. Well its many years later and I still have only a vague inkling on what it takes to actually put one together. Oh I know there are tons of tutorials and how-to's on teaching people to draw superheros, or how to make a manga, but very few of these actually give more than a small notion on what it takes to make a comic. Fewer still go from cover to cover of an issue, and fewer still talk about the process of independently producing your own works.I don't claim to have all the answers to the questions I am looking for. By making this blog I hope to help some others along the way.
This is a chronicle of my journey to make and publish my first comic book.
