The Twelve - Part 1

Goodness. I love it when a project comes together.

Along with changing the 9 to 5 career recently, I've been busy gearing up for my second shopping project as well as finishing my first. This was started back in August 2005 and it's finally completed. I can't tell you how excited I am about this.

This is an eight page sample for an action-adventure drama called The Twelve. It's about twelve people chosen by God to save the United States during World War III. But first, they must destroy it. Burdened with a task they either embrace, despise, or don't understand, they proceed with their mission, an endeavor that forces them to deal with each other and their own hearts.

I'm still in the process of figuring out what format this is going to be in. A twelve issue mini-series would be the perfect thing and rather fitting because of the title. Plus it would give me leeway to break this up into its four acts. Those are tentatively: The Garnering, The Judgment, The Infighting, and The War.

I'm sure coming out the box with a twelve issue mini-series is going to be rather difficult. But that's really how I see it. If the package is good enough, I'm sure the publisher will say something ridiculous like, "We like the concept and how the project looks. The only thing is the twelve issue mini series format. We were thinking more like six."

Well...maybe not that ridiculous. At least I hope not.

This will also work as a graphic novel and probably more so than a mini-series. Either or is fine with me. As long as it gets published. I think this is a story that needs to be told.

This was also partly inspired by characters that were created in the MMORPG City Of Heroes. Personal characters and other characters that were in the same supergroup. I changed a few things...well...more than a few. But the main characters intrinsically stay the same....kinda. are the first four pages of the sample package. I'm REALLY looking for comments on this one because this is a pretty important project to me. As I said before, this story needs to be told.

The page sequence on this is left, right, left, right. Click on the pages. Float your cursor over the bottom right hand corner and you'll get an icon that you can click on to get a full view. God bless and enjoy.
