Introducing "Fallen Idols" Digital Indie Comic

FallenIdols-2

Firstly, thank you to Jesse Sarwar for introducing me to this site. Secondly I'd like to say hi to everyone here, this is the first blog I've ever done. And thirdly, I'd like to share with you all something I've been working on, finished working on and now working on the Sequel.

 

Fallen Idols

 

 

Introducing "Fallen Idols" a downloadable comic book PDF. It's a Fantasy adventure comic book which is set in the kingdom of Barlingnor where magic is slowly fading out and Science is slowly stepping in. It's a place filled with adventure, action, mystery and intrigue The first issue "The fall of Mountainwood" begins with a noblemen Lecain. His stage coach broke a wheel while travelling on the way to the other side of the kingdom to Mountainwood. Fortunately for him a friendly blacksmith has offered to give him a ride the rest of the way. Yet things things are not what they seem as something appears to be stalking them, and a there's something else which has their destination in their sights. Written and Illustrated by Steven Edwards. (that's me!) its 28 Pages Full Color Width: 210mm Height: 297mm at 200Dpi Now a Little more on the series and what to expect here: Fallen idols is something I started from scratch 2 years ago after discovering just how easy it could be to self publish. I use a program called "Inkscape" which is a free version of Illustrator, "Gimp" which is a free version of Photoshop. Then I use websites to convert the files into a PDF format. I self publish on etsy.com which is very cheap to use and easy to manage. In future blog posts I plan to give a much more detailed process on how I go about making the comic book for those who have an interest in making comic books but don't have the drawing skills to support and working on a small budget. All you need is a reasonable computer (perhaps even a unreasonable computer will do). I'll also be giving blog posts about my progression on my current second issue. Finally a little bit about me: My name is Steve Edwards, I've been writing comics from early childhood, I've always kept an even balance between my art and my writing and always wanted to put them into use but could never find the right way to approach it. For many years I've been trying to get into graphic design with little success and I eventually decided if I no one would let me into their business then I would go into business myself. I like to think that the past 5 years have led me little by little to this point. In the future some things I'd like to look into is getting the series printed into a graphic novel and have an actual physical copy. But that will have to wait for now as it costs a bit more than I'd like and I want to finish more issues before that. I'll be allowing comments too to answer any questions with my audience that anyone may have, so feel free to reply in the comments below and say hi and let me know what you think.

Steve Edwards, congratulations on putting together you first comic. I am very impressed. It is a wonderful feeling isn't. After have been doing for over 20 years. I have learned a thing or two that you have not in the past 6. Technology has progressed so much from when I started doing this than even you know. Now it is even possible to get into a printed format is affordable (As little as $6.00) and you don't have to give if away for free. You can actually make money as long as the book is at least 24 pages long. Please check out his website and you will see the amazing discovery that I made that has changed a childhood dream into a lucrative business. This is the website: http://www.createspace.com (They are an Amazon.com affliliate). Good luck with your project and if you need any help with uploading your book to that sight please feel free to contact me here and ask for a friend request and I will accept. The I will tell you how to do it. Once again congratulations on realizing your dream. Now take it to the next level.

Kindest regards,

Theodore Riddle

Welcome to Geek-Genie Steve! Congratulations on the new comic book, looks fantastic. I will definately put it on my list to check out. “Fallen Idols” looks so interesting and unique, you never know maybe one day the comic will be up there with Marvel and DC. I wouldn’t be surprised. You have done a great job on achieving your dreams and I will keep my eyes peeled for the sequel and any other blog posts. Don’t mind checking my content out too, I do reviews, top 10’s and anything to do with pop-culture. I hope to see the sequel of “Fallen Idols” and am very excited.

Thanks, IzzyLFC

Maybe I'll follow your footsteps, as I have been creating some small comics. Maybe I'll be on your level someday!:

Haha. You need only publish something to be on my level. And that was the easy bit.
