Topic: Comic Book Writers
I met several creators at this year's San Diego Comic Con, or as they call it now: Comic Con International: San Diego...
James Pinard was one of them, whom I had 'met' only via Facebook and the telephone prior to meeting him at the SDCC. Due to time schedules and the fact that two programs Tina and I were interested in were overlapping; it turned out that Tina and James were going to the same comics marketing program.
So after introducing James to Tina, I read further on what James was working on. I thought I would share that info with my blog readers today. First is the biography on James, and then the 'pitch' on one of his two current projects. If you are an illustrator reading this blog post, you might want to check out the 'Dark Trinity' project pitch that James is in need of an illustrator to collaborate with!
(Screenplays, Comic book/Graphic novel writer)
I am a writer whose love for movies has lead me into the world of screenplay writing which I have been doing for many years now. In addition to writing screenplays, I have also written some poetry and short stories. I also maintain two websites, one for my comic and one for my other works. Sometime back I renewed my interest and passion for comic books and graphic novels. I will also be working on a short movie script based on one of my comics in the near future.
My current focus is on creating a series of comic books based on one of my screenplays called “DARK TRINITY.” The screenplay is registered with the WGA and the comic with the copyright office. I am also working on the comic script for a second story in the series set in the Forbidden City called “DEATH BY DIVINE.”
I am currently seeking an artist who I can collaborate with on either one of these comics. I would like this to be a true collaboration where we each have input on the other’s work.
For those of you that may be interested in collaborating with James on either of his two projects, here is more on Dark Trinity, which I have seen a little more of:
“Dark Trinity” is a graphic novel that entertains you as an action packed ultra-violent thriller set in our world of the future. The Story will draw you in and make you think, because it could be true…
Set in the “Forbidden City,” an ultra-violent futuristic city, where Demons hide in human form by day and change into their true demonic form at night to hunt humans from the shadows.
As a boy, Micheal our hero, is an angel in human form. He watched as Demons who were sent to kill him, murdered his parents. He didn’t know that he was sent to defend the world from Demons who were poised to plunge the world into a dark and dangerous place. After his parent’s death Father Aragon, Michael’s protector, knew of Michael’s special abilities and sent him out of the city and into hiding where he would be safe and could develop his “gifts.” He knew Michael’s true destiny.
Michael returns years later as a man to find Sara, the childhood friend he left behind, who is also an Angel, sent to help him on a journey of discovery. A journey that will ultimately lead him to find others of his kind and the secret to his powers, all the while being hunted by Demons, who know he has returned.
Luther, his adversary and leader of the “Blade Heads,” the gang of Demons that hold the city in fear, will stop at nothing to kill Michael before he can uncover the truth. A great secret that will reveal the importance of the human race, who are the real key to stopping Luther. This secret will ultimately change the world and our reality as we know it forever…
