Spilling out in panels.

To those who know me, know that I'm a pretty big comic geek. In fact earlier today I did a demonstrative speech about how to properly bag and board a comic book. Well, I'm also a writer, well sort of. So I suppose it's a no brainer that eventually I'd try to write my own comic book. I've already completed my first 35 page script. But I have a problem. I can't draw to save my soul. For those of you who might now know, comics have pictures. But, I do have some descriptions written up for the main characters of my comic.

Jordan Murdock: 5'11, 180 lbs, 21 years old. Short cropped brown hair, green eyes. He wears looser clothing, canvas shoes (converse style). During the series he'll be wearing primarily an olive green zipper hoodie, and light faded blue jeans. He will start out the series clean shaved but as the events of the series pile on, he will develop patchy facial hair. He has strong telekinetic powers, when these powers are in use a sky blue aura will form around whatever is being affected, the aura will have a sort of heat wave effect to it. While he's not necessarily a slacker, he has a personality that definitely lacks ambition and self-confidence. He looks down at his feet a lot, and keeps his hands in his pockets.

Sonny Hernandez: 6'2" 210 lbs, 22 years old. Black hair, brown eyes. He is of Mexican heritage, this shows with his darkly tanned skin. His hair will be longer than Jordan's and he'll keep it slicked back. He personifies a greaser style, with a white tight t-shirt, black pants, with black leather shoes with thick boot style soles. He has a muscular build and a childhood scar running from his right eye to the middle of his cheek. He has that look in the way he stands and looks at people that he's been in a few fights in his day. He's not cocky, but compared to Jordan his confidence and general optimism shows.

Rachel Polaski: 5'6" 140 lbs, 28 years old. Dirty blonde hair, blue eyes. Dresses modestly and comfortably. Things like camiosoles, cargo pants and tennis shoes. She has middle of the back length hair that she keeps in a pony tail or a messy bun kept together with pencils most of the time. She doesn't have an extremely slender build, she has some curves that come from eating frozen pizza and fast food most of the time. Her breasts are larger, but in a natural way. Her face shows a level of contemplation and thought at all times. Due to some of her actions bad things have happened and that guilt will at times shine.

Agent St. Pierre: 59 years old, 6'0" 150 lbs. Thinning grey hair, brown eyes. His face is covered in deep stress lines, especially around his eyes and forehead. Wears the traditional grey or black business suits. At the beginning he will be very trimmed, neat vertical lines in his suit. But towards the end, the suit will look more disheveled and wrinkled. He will try to keep a cold demeanor but it's apparent that he has an explosive temper, and sometimes he won't be able to contain himself. While he has a temper he himself is not violent. But has no problem ordering others to perform the violent acts he himself won't do.

So here's the first set of characters for my comics. I'll reveal the next set next week sometime. This is probably a little premature, but if any of you who might be reading this fancy yourselves artists, I'd like to see what you can do with these descriptions, go wild on them. Like a good man named Wil Wheaton likes to say, "Get excited and make something."
