Today's Feature: Blog #3282

Tina and I met Tanya Burr at the area known as 'Under The Sails Pavilion' on Preview Night of the 2010 SDCC.

Tanya showed us her first self published full sized comic book titled 'Dreds' #1, plus a couple other mini-comics that were also self published.

I've been wanting to blog about her since meeting her at the Comic-Con.

I'm taking the time now before the 2010 Year runs out... Would you believe Christmas is only 38 Days away when this blog is published?  Sheesh!

Dreds #1, which is pictured at the top right of this blog, is a 20 page black & white comic book.

The Front Cover of course gives a casual browser what the title and the character are. Good intro, and her name placement at the bottom left corner is a nice touch.

The inside front cover is the Credits Page, and acknowledgements as to who has encouraged her to that point, (printed in Tuscon, Arizona in November 2009).

The Splash page is just opposite of being a Splash Page.  Instead of a 'splash' the reader is eased into the story...

The rest of the interior pages are shown in odd shaped panels, full page layouts, and with pages with mostly text on them. 

What 'ties' the story all together are the 'dreds', which are pictured all over the place on the pages... But keeping within the theme of the comic book.

The inside back cover is titled 'About the Artist', which is a good insight into Tanya's background.  It was good that she shared this with the reader.

The back cover shows just the name of her web site to see more of her work at, CowHatNinja.com, which by the way, is why she is wearing that style of hat in the top left photo of this post standing by me!

I found that that I wanted to encourage her into continuing her passion into making comics.  You see, Tanya had worked six years at her local comic book shop, (LCBS), which gave her the insight into the inner workings of the industry from a retail perspective.  Instead of following so many other persons that have worked at their LCBS, and wish they could break into comics, Tanya has taken the first steps into actually doing so!

Besides having her own domain name, Tanya also has a deviant art site at: cowhat-ninja.deviantart.com that you could look at.

To order a copy of this comic book, and possibly ask about her other works, which I do not have room here to review, you can contact her at: cowhatninja@yahoo.com

My rating for Dreds #1 is: A VERY FINE (VF) 8.0 out of a 10.0 comic book grading scale.

My thanks to Tanya Burr for showing Tina and myself her comics works thus far in her journey!
