For the love of Sci-fi dec’ 22

Writer Damian is an enormous science fiction fan, Asimov, Philip K. Dick, basically anything with robots and artificial intelligence has me buzzing. We all love a great Detective story, especially those that require travel. For WATZ-0 Damian drew heavily on two of his favourite films; I-Robot and The Fugitive and when the draft script was wrapped, the Comicspiration team could feel the ‘Bladerunner and Enemy of the State vibes’.
There’s more to come from WATZ-0 and Mason, this story is a fragment within a kaleidoscope of interconnected moments of their journey together.

Our Process

Comic Design Process Overview

Step One

The Web of Ideas

We kick off the process by creating a character description document, which includes personality type, wants, needs and fears and anxieties. We then create a story beat-sheet which is an outline of the story – we’ll visit this again in the script writing stage.

Drawing Outside the Box

Our team of artists will develop the visual style and direction for the comic book, we create character designs, environment concepts and agree on a colour palette for the book too.

The Write Stuff

Our writers revisit the story beat-sheet and develop this into a detailed script that outlines the story, dialogue, and narration of the story. The script can include panel descriptions, page layouts and reference material.
