*Melody and Julian Floating in, staring at each other, completely infatuated with one another. The is sparkling*
The world produces alot of people, and Julian Cassablanca’s singular purpose was to die. His entire life he was set up for failure, death waiting on his shoulder at all times. Until fate figured out how to use him. Julian became a sacrificial lion.
Melody vague, however, was born an anomaly. From trimester one she had no connection to fate, no strings leading her where to go.
*There needs to be an image of her walking through a park, and tons of people with spirit like strands connecting to the sky.*
Fate, afraid of what this could mean also marked her for death, but due to her unpredictable nature, this was a bit hard to pin down.
** Jules, don’t look! You can’t look at me yet. I’m your girlfriend from the future.
Here. I need you to find me.
And that set him on a future that irrevocably change the world.
Dude, are you giving an establishing introductory monologue?
Unlike you, I’m still connected to fate! I didn’t even realize!! Jules, Mel, this is bad. Somethings happening. Jules are you…
Oh no… vibrating…
*Melody smiles* *Then winks and points with a gun finger at his crotch*
*Julian winks back* *The two stare at each other infatuated*
JULIAN, YOU ARE PULSATING. FOCUS.
Right right… my heart… Dude, it’s the
EMPIRE OF GRIEF is here with a matter regarding your heart Julian Cassablanca! *Giant castle is floating over San Francisco having just come out of what I can only describe as “warp.”
It has been a while since someone in the industry has said something that has completely irked me in every conceivable way.
What better way to alienate your core audience, while also making your company look weak and yourself look petty, all in one fell swoop.
And I wish enough comic book fans cared to read his statement, so they could see how much of a lumbering jackass he was. Also, I wished anyone cared enough to read this, but that is a whole other matter entirely.
Mr. Stephenson. There is no double standard. For our favorite stories, I still hold out hope they become films or television series. I have been hoping from day one that “Fell” would become the next big cop drama.
It’s absolutely okay for a writer (hell, even a businessman such as yourself) to aspire to have your intellectual properties become motion pictures or even television series. But when every single one of your books has become a 30 page pitchman, that is a problem.
And by the way… Avengers was a dream come true. We got to see our first cinematic crossover team of some of our favorite childhood heroes. It is absolutely okay for us to cheer it on, because when Stan Lee or Steve Ditko or some other third guy was writing these characters for Marvel, it was with the intent to tell good stories. And while the comics have strayed from that these days, the movie WAS a good story.
If you want to tell a good story, tell it with the intent of telling a good story, and bring some pride into writing for the Comic Book Industry.
