Since I've been re-posting Guitar Fridays and plan to post more on writer-related topics, I thought a reintroduction was in order (also, John has been drilling it into my head that I need to get over my discomfort and just submit to shamelessly promoting myself on this site). My name is Michael Alan Nelson and I've been a professional comics writer for almost five years now.
For those of you who have been reading KFM since the beginning, you may remember John talking about my online novel titled DINGO. I've written a few things since then, the most popular titles being Zombie Tales (of which John is also a contributor), Cthulhu Tales, Fall of Cthulhu (the longest running ever BOOM! Studios series), and Hexed (the first comic ever available for phones with the Google Android OS). Currently, I'm writing the ongoing series 28 Days Later as well as adapting DINGO as a comic (issue #2 of 4 just came out last week).
While John keeps you updated on Leverage goodness, popular geek culture, and the finer points of professional writing, I'll be posting about the writing process from the shallow-end of the pool.
Up next: challenges of adapting a full-length novel into a four issue comic mini-series.
