#ComicSchool is a project by Gail Simone (Deadpool, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Red Sonja) to help people write comics.
The project is Water Woman – Into the Deep and here’s the pitch;
Her girlfriend tried to kill her, but the Bermuda Triangle had other ideas….
It’s a pledge of $10 for the ebook, and you can go much higher if you want wallpapers or even pictures taken with the production team.
Steffie and Crissie met at #ComicSchool. Steffie is full of praise for Crissie;
I’m so excited to work with Crissie. My writing is very ‘show, don’t tell’ and Crissie nails every single facial expression I ask for.”
Do you know those school projects where one person does all the work? That doesn’t seem to be the case here! Crissie adds;
It’s not her book, or mine. It’s ours. We both feel our characters and their story, so deeply. It’s a privilege to work with Steffie.”
The story starts off with a young artist called Niqui escaping the abuse she was receiving from her girlfriend Romain.
Steffie told Geek Native that it’s not just an origin story for a superhero, it’s also partially a story about leaving your abuser and getting your life back on track. Water makes a thoughtful focus for such a comic book story, being yielding and very strong at the same time.
