The link leads to my own submission to this wonderful project. What it’s all about is connecting writers and artists to “Make Their Own, Then”, which has been a long spouted cry from those attempting to defend the current trend of the comic book industry. When fans will make note of harsh changes to characters (such as the issue with characterization in the book Red Hood and the Outlaws: opinion, Jason Todd should’ve stayed dead: anyway…) the comic execs, creators, writers, artists, those fans who defend crappy changes, would often cry out “well make your own, then”. So, thanks to tumblr hero, Gail Simone, she suggested to turn this negative into a positive. Hugh McMullen, of the Goddamn Cobras Collective, listened and delivered with Make Your Own, Then. To date there are now three projects underway for web and print, and those three met through this tumblr.
Here’s my own submission (click the link, or read here).
The idea is science fiction and one I’ve had in mind for a while (oh, since I was 12, and considering I’m 41, that’s a long time). Consider it a cross between Wind in the Willows and Star Trek. The main characters are anthropomorphised foxes, with there also being lizards, tigers, bobcats, lynx, wolves, lions and others. The story takes place in it’s own star system, and references different technologies of the system. All of the planets that hold life have space flight capabilities.
It would be a chance to create some interesting characters, ship designs, space ports, planetary systems, star fields, alien worlds, and space battles. Currently, I’m writing the story in long form novel like serial series, and can be read here: https://taholtorf.wordpress.com/thebarrowsrevenge/
The story begins in Rocket Fox: Flight of the Nighthawk. Viewers may notice there is also Swift Fox and the Pirates of the Jackai. Same universe, but it’s actually the third in a long draft of stories, FotN is actually the first arc in the series, PotJ is the third arc. Stories are posted daily, and after this first arc is done, I’ll be taking a bit of a break to go over the text and brush a few things up.
