So I write five pages of a self contained comic a day and then post them here. (http://fivebyfivecomics.wordpress.com/)

I'll probably do it for a month so as not to completely drain myself of ideas. The ending goal being getting these comics drawn by artists and then compiling it into a 75 or so page book. That's 12 stories that hopefully showcases a whole bunch of genres and artists.

I'd love feedback on the site or any story in particular. I'm currently trying to find a better way to display PDFs on Wordpress that isn't Scribd.

The comic scripts currently on the site are:

Bone Marsh: A cruel man hunts for his supposed murderer in a fable like tale.

Millennials: A group of modern heroes for a cynical, modern world.

Sonar: A horror story on a submarine. Something is affecting the sailors and turning them into monsters.

Planet of Beasts: A retro scifi story that follows the beautiful Tatiana Rex and her robotbarian cohort Korg through a planet full of monsters and treasure.

All Manor of Flesh: Is an Edgar Allen Poe-ish tale of Victorian body horror in a large and malevolent house.

I wish I had images to post, but I don't yet! A new story will be up tonight and all this week up until Friday!

Love the idea, also great presentation.

I haven't gotten a chance to read any yet, but I'll check them out when I get time. Also kudos for producing at that rate, it's hard enough to write anything everyday.

Once these things get further along, if you decide to go full color, hit me up.

The Poe-ish story sounds amazing, I just flatted Locke and Key for the last 3 years, I have the exp, haha.

Awesome! Thanks, I will definitely keep you in mind. Just threw up today's new story "Surface Skin" that takes place in a Terminator-esque future. Things aren't always as they appear, however.

Good idea! Post some images of those script pages in here so people get a sense of what you're doing and keep frequent visual updates in this thread coming and you'll get more hits to your site!
