Nathan Short Story Cover by comic-chic Nathan Short Story Cover by comic-chic
I realized I never posted this. It's the cover to a short story I wrote about Nathan Hale, and his reaction to the events of April 19th, 1775. That and, well, girls.

The short story can be purchased here for only $5: [link]

Nope! That would be weird...

Bea: Liz... I'm having dreams about 1776.
Liz: What--? No way! I'm having dreams about 1775!!

The blond behind Nathan just looked so much like her that I was wondering. :XD:

Haha. Did you actually get your husband to wear something vintage? I tried to persuade my friend to put on a tail-coat, but he didn't want to hear about it D: I decided not to try to ask about stockings:XD:

I think it's kinda late for me to ask this question: Did you purposefully draw the blonde girl in the spotlight to look like Liz? She looks like Liz to me anyway.

So... awesome.... *basking in the awesomeness*

I can't say enough about your art. Really.

AND I LOVE WHERE THE STORY HAS GONE. Seriously, I find myself doing what Bea does- day dreaming about Alan and Nathan :D

ALSO:

I am writing a report on the Spanish Influenza of 1918. Just wondering if you know much about it- I find it incredibly interesting, but frightening. Do you like stuff about WWI and the post-WWI era?

comic-chic Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2008  Professional
Spanish Influenza? Hmmm. Not so much. No, I don't know a lot about that area...

But ooh, ooh, ask me about Alexander Hamilton!! Or, or Sam Adams! Or Washington...!! lol.

p.s. glad you're liking the story so far! Issues 4 & 5 were so much fun to write, and have been a lot of fun to draw, if not very challenging. ^^; But I'm almost finished with #5 and drew a bunch of stuff in that issue that when I wrote it I said, "CRAP. Now I have to figure out how to draw that!" >__< It's been fun forcing myself to pull it off. :D

It was a difficult essay, but it's finally over :D

OKAY! Tell me a bit about Washington :D Is he ever going to appear in The Dreamer?

Actually, an interesting fact about Martha Washington- one of my classmates is a descendent of her! He has a lock of her hair and brought it in in seventh grade for a project. He even has a part of her diary!

I HAVE LOVED THESE PAST ISSUES!!! Amazing, truly amazing.

Even though you said "CRAP" I said "YAY" because every page was just AWESOME. Oooh I can't believe Issue 5 is almost done!! I have found this issue to be one of my favorites! :D Especially the latest page. FREDDY!!!! I LOVE HIM POSSIBLY MORE THAN NATHAN. Soooo CUTE!

You wanna see General Washington? *cough*Issue#6*cough*

Which I just finished writing yesterday. :D

Um, and I officially have a crush on your classmate. I know, I know, it's so utterly wrong. But if I go to the prom with him, do you think he'll let me see the Martha-lock? :date:

Tee Hee, Freddy is super, super cute. I love Nathan, too, but at 21, he's past the 'adorable' stage! Maybe I'll do "Nathan Hale: The College Years" when he was 14-18 years old. THEN he'd get the adorable award. OMG, little teenage Nathan giving speeches in his secret fraternity club???!!! :love: OMG, now I have to do it! :excited:

I know The Dreamer had a slow start, not much action in the first few issues, but when I was writing it, I though it would pay off to have a big build up to the Battle of Brooklyn in #4 & #5 if my readers already cared about the characters. Now that I'm almost done with #5, I think it really paid off. It also gave me time to develop my style and increase my speed at drawing, coloring, lettering, etc. The process is much more streamlined now. I think if I had drawn the battle in issue one or two it would've, well, it would've sucked. :XD:

So I'm glad to hear you think it works, too! :D

D'aww. Who knows? Maybe one day we'll stick in the back of a trade or something. Then you can go to Barnes & Nobel and read it in the graphic novel aisle or something. :) Or... you could give five bucks to a friend and have them do it, lol!

I'm hoping for the Barnes and Noble option. hahaha. This definitely has the potential to make it up there with the big stuff in the comic book section though! "Eh, I'm tired of reading Spiderman... OOH look! The Dreamer!"
