Don't feel bad. . .you should do it on your own, i've asked people here to help me out and they gave me lousy advice. So far, I'm doing good with my comic book! At least that's what my teachers and friends say, I don't know what the people on this site would say.

MartialArtKick!
you don't know...i am the worlds suckyest writer EVER. plus, all of my friends are morons and my teachers are insane and senile. the way i see it, im totally screwed on this one here.

one of my teachers, whom i have only had her class for this semester, thought my name was josh for 8 weeks, even when i told her it wasnt. my name is jordan, by the way. soon after my dad and i went to tell her strait, my name quickly changed to greg! i still don't know how 'greg' sounds remotely similiar to 'jordan', but this is one of the many things that prove that my school is actually a nut-house desquised as a high school. What the f**k?

thanks for your advice though.

grade 3 ol
ooo... a nut house school! coool!

n.n.way! I also think you should come up with your own ideas. look at the world around you. anywhere could be inspirational! all ya gotta do is think outside of the box... i like aliens personally

and what that has to do with anything... well... nothing! but you get my point dont ya?

hey i was just passing along and found that you need ideas for comics and it so happens that i have plenty,a book full actually. At the moment i don't have an idea that is to your previous subject but i do have a old idea of mine that i don't have use for and it involves possessed pistols and a devil hunter. one good one evil,you can have a lot of fun with this one.the character could be male or female and also you could give the character off the wall gun tricks and lastly think of magical pistols and scary transformations.

I'm thinking about a comic book idea myself for ages aswell. Originality is quite the challenge with so many good comics around...
My thought concerning characters is that they first of all need personality and appeal to the readers as intended. Looks and abilities follow after that.
You need a well thought off character in a situation that makes readers very curious about what the hell is gonna happen next.
Think about just why your characters are as they are, make a background story on them to give yourself clues how to let them develop.
And very important on the personality issue, strengths are important, but weaknesses can provide even more good material for a story. Cause where is the fun in a comic about a almighty whatever since he will be still standing at the end of each book? Give them challenges, make em cry and put them in situations people can relate to.
For design, it depends on the style and sort of world you are using, like sort of realistic to big time fantasy. Again, don't focus on your inspirations, just adapt them. We've seen the huge trashing hulks, sexy armored manga-chicks, try something a little different. Mix up stuff from different ages, and give thought to why a character looks like he does, has clothing/armor/ weapons like he does and consult your background story on them for how they got all that. It will most likely make you come up with lost of new scenarios, links and plots.
Just my thoughts

Meh, I write stories, not create comics, so I can't really help you out. However, I am interested in your... well... interest in comic books. I might be able to come up with something you might like as a plot. Anything other than martial arts? What genre? Sci-Fi? Fantasy? Realistic fiction?

rockafromhell

This site has a weird way of showing comic strips

Never posted here before, but I was looking through PR's sig gallery, and thought, hey, I'll look at the rest of the forums, and there was this I need soem comic book ideas, and I love comics, so I thought I'd stop by. So I did.

Anyways, the best thing you can do is quit reading comics. Read other literature and stories, and don't try to forge some immense epic story, just think of a few cool scenes--a car chase, or a fight with a little added flavor and fervor. Then think about the characters involved, think about how they got to that point, and what their motivation should be after that scene is completed, and slowly let it form into a story. That's how I do it, I don't web or outline or draft, whatever I write, I want it to be as much fun, and as much of a thrill ride for myself as for those whom I would have read it. I am not the artist, or the craftsman, I am the instrument through which this story is told, I am no more important than the pen, or the dictionary, or the thesaurus.

As for character designs--don't worry about it, just think of what's cool, or what's abstract. If it's modern day, and there's a curse and mystical stuff--some guy in a 1920's pinstripe gangster suit, with a sweet hat and a Thompson gun should fit perfectly! And you know why? Because he's not supposed to fit, because that look is so outdated it's almost become new and different and expressive.

If you try too hard to create, all your creations will suck, just chill out, and let it flow.

That's what I do anyways.

What always works for me is to carry a small notepad around with me. When I get an idea, even if it sucks, I write it down. At the end of the day, I look at all of them and decide on ways that they could be improved. If I can't think of a way to improve them, I keep them in there and look at them the next day along with any new ones. Eventually, I stumble onto a great idea.
My story, "The Evangelist," started that way; as an idea I couldn't improve. It was actually going to be a lot different than it turned out to be.
That's just a suggestion, though. I can't really help you with characters or plot since I'm not good at plots myself, and I can only come up with characters if I have a plot. Anyways, good luck with yor comic.

works for me, and i write films

lol but thats the thing.. the original poster wants 'you' to do it 'for him'.. meaning even though you're giving nice ideas on how to get a creative flow going.. this is still an advertisement to ask someone to 'give' him these things, without him having any part but getting finances out of it

LunaticHigh
good point.

RomeoTheKnight
Not only it is a good idea but it is actually an epic type stroy.
Loads of possibiliteis adn ORIGINAL!
I thoguht of the characters (over 200 of them) when I was as yuoung as 12 years of age.
I am 37 now and see a NEED for the world i had created.
My characters have not changed much from their original concept and this is why I have thought recently to bring up my old sketches.

I personally do soem writing and illustrations but work mainly as a comp tech now.

I am looking for someone of pretty good penciling and a writer to talk over this idea with.
PLEASE be of a real mindsest as this is some thing we can really turn out.
I am a dedicated type person who works to complete projects.
I am planning to do atleast 2 issues as an intro for the purpose of selling.

Once you talk to me you will see (discloser form of course will have to be signed) this idea and these characters Ihave are totally marketable in every way. right down to Ceral and Pajamma bottems lol.


well I can not go into detail of course here so I await some call backs or email.
I am in Toronto Canada so it would be AWSOME to meet a fellow canadian comic person.


Of course in todays world it doesnt matter where you live as we have the net to utilize smile



Take care comic lovers!! and take note.. the only movies to come out worth seeing.. were COMIC movies !! WOOOT!

Wow, this thread is an unbelievable display of incompetence and idiocy. Good find.

I say a comic about a guy who suddenly wakes up and finds he has some limited abilities...faster at running, more intelligent than a typical genius, higher level of strength.

The powers then increase gradually every day and incorporate telekinesis, telepathy, flying etc...These start of only being able to affect small objects/single people but gradually get more and more powerful.

During this time he would face equivalent challenges to his own abilities.

He would continue to develop until he was essentially a God....His final abilities would include

Infinite speed so that he could be in all places throughout the universe at all times

Infinite strength...able to lift any mass.

Telepathically able to connect and manipulate every living thing in the universe.

Able to exist on more than the 4 standard dimensions of space/time....

His ultimate evolution would be to do all those things over an infinite number of universes.

He would also struggle with guilt and moral dilemmas over his powers....especially in the earlier stages of his evolution.

Well i got a couple idea's like i mix stuff up like zombie + fire *Explosive Zombie* so just mix stuff up and you will get lots of types of characters its simple but plots im not good at that sad

Well if you still need a comic book idea I have a whole series of books made of a comic I never got to do because I couldn't find a artist for them. the story is great and is set in three different series if you will. All have been thought threw til the end of the story but none have been written down but I could in a heart-beat. So if you still need something maybe we could help each other out. cool

Puzzler888
Okay, i write comics that are, like, set in the real world and deals with everyday life BUT at the same time has a different feel of a like fantasy world.
So here is my idea:

A guy called ------ has just escaped from rehab because he is fed up of it inside. So he goes to his brother's house, a simple married man, who is surprised to see him. He settles down in his brother's house and is surprised to see him not leading the good life. He then takes him to drive across town gets drunk, buys drugs, though his brother is completely against it.

Well, that's a comic i wrote, and everybody likes it. You could use that idea if you want, that doesn't mean just copy paste it into your book.

bogert
I think round about 300 ideas for your Comic Book...!!!
You should have decided from where to go...
After seeing replies to your thread..I must call you a lucky Boy..
big grin big grin

Wow ive had the same problem recently........every time I try it just strays from interest..........hmmmm...........try basing the comic on your life with a (subtle or drastic) change. That's what I'm doing. Hmmmmm a person whom is a blade-weilding outlaw sounds good. CALLED IT!
