Back in the late 80's and early to mid 90's I used to read a lot of comics, along with literature and novels, in about the late 90's I lost interest in comics. I'm a writer myself and I've always been writing stories, poems, and working on novels since I was young. Part of me wanted to draw my characters and I did doodle little characters for worlds I came up with, but I'm no artist by any stretch. So while there was a part of me that wanted to create a comic, I knew I never could myself. Fast-forward to a few years ago and I started writing a short story for a compilation. That short story suddenly ballooned in my mind and I had to withdraw it as it was no longer short at all.
When I started showing that story that had come from that to others, many people told me how they thought it would make an amazing graphic novel, and so I went to a friend of mine, who unlike me is an amazing artist and talked with him about it. We'd actually toyed around with the idea of a comic in the past, one with a story we were both working on, but that never got further than a few pages. When I told him about it and asked for his help though he was almost as excited about it as me, and well here we are now one chapter, a complete scrap and revising later. Cowan's Crux
