Although I write a lot and have a lot of ideas, I do not consider myself to be a writer. I'm going to bow out of writing a piece.

I'm going to put together a DEFIANT checklist for the 'zine. I'll probably post it here so I can get input from the board.

Here is a link to my old board with a list of cards and a link back to the site the info originated. Perhaps you can contact the list's creator.

http://defiant1.proboards.com/thread/2186/defiant-cards

The old board has 3 links in that thread to 3 different pages that list the regular cards. I'm not sure if the list includes promo card sheets. Maybe you can get his permission to publish the info if you provide a link back to his site.

How many pages are you thinking about putting together?

Comic or magazine sized fanzine? B&W/Color?

I haven't settled on the specifics yet. It's sort of a living thing right now. Some things are happening that are far better than I'd hoped for. I have to let things play out a bit as far as what people are doing before I decide
on specifics. As soon as I have them I'll post here about it.
As far as the links you posted, Defiant1, thanks. I'll be mentioning the board as a source.

Just know that I'm not looking for accolades or personal attention. I try to archive the info to help other collectors. I have a problem with people mirroring my site, but the images themselves do not belong to me. The facts and historical data don't belong to me. As long as you make the fanzine your own, you are welcome to the images and data on my site. I created my DEFIANT site because the information was not online. I sat around wondering why no one had put the information online. Then I looked at myself and decided that I have no right to complain if I'm unwilling to do it myself. I decided at that moment to do it myself. Many people have helped and contributed. The info here is "By the fans, for the fans." Occasionally I've meted out information more slowly than it was received, but that is so people have a steady reason to come back and stay engaged.

I also just got a major sponsor for the fanzine, and I'll run an ad for them in the fanzine. More on that as I get closer to publication.

It's likely this fanzine will be very rare. I don't think I'll print more than a few copies above and beyond comp copies for any artists who contribute and a few other comps. I'll try to presell it also. I'm in no position to take a loss on it.

No comment on if they're the sponsor. Stop guessing. You'll ruin Christmas if you guess the presents. Seriously though I've no info indicating anyone is close to bringing DEFIANT back. I hope that's the case, but I wouldn't bet on it. Of course, I've been wrong a lot over the course of my life. {Grin}

Depending upon the price, I may buy 10.

1993 was when Plasm, Splatterball, Dark Dominion and Good Guys came out.

I don't remember which Defiant issue officially came first....the Plasm #0 comics inside Previews (1993 Feb-June issue?) or the Birth Of Defiant Universe convention comic. I got my copy of Birth years later when I discovered it's existence from the forums.

Anyone want to write an article in exchange for a comp copy? It can be on anything DEFIANT related and hopefully close to a full page.

I'd offer to do a pinup sketch of Raven Madd if I could draw. Smiley

How many pages is the fanzine looking so far?

Any Schism coverage?

I might use some unpublished Schism art as the cover. The Zine very well might be magazine sized. I bet it'll be at least 20 pages. We should have a drop box folder set up soon that'll hold content for the Zine. Things should become a bit clearer then.

Magazine sized sounds nice....this is getting exciting. What's interesting about the Schism notes and leftover art was Lorca was left on planet earth with the heroes after the crossover ended. And Chasm was left in charge of the Org after eating Glimmer's heart. Maybe Joe James might remember where the next stuff was headed for them.

It would be nice to know if they have access to all the old digital files. I've heard they are locked into an obsolete computer format.

Maybe that's where they kept the re-drawn Joe James pages for Dark Dominion #0 that were mentioned in those old Defiant solicits.

That would be a good extra to the Zine.....all those September 1993 solicits that have been cliffhangers to fans for 24 years...

http://defiant.x10.bz/Cancelled.html

Smiley

And the Fatale/Michael Alexander crossover....that would make the Zine jump to 48 pages!

There's enough material to fill up volumes. I guess the fun part is editing everything down to a suitable page count.

I look at the magazines from Twomorrows like "Back Issue" and "Alter Ego," and alot of the color images used in those articles are taken straight from online spots like ComicArtFans or google images. I don't know how that works or if no permission is needed since it's online. Or maybe they just get a special thanks credit to use the images.

If CorvetteJim were around, his collecting hunts on Defiant merchandise would make for another good addition on coverage.

Yeah, this probably sounds much easier than it is. I don't really have a single article locked in from a contributor yet. I've no idea if that will change.

Yeah, this probably sounds much easier than it is. I don't really have a single article locked in from a contributor yet. I've no idea if that will change.


In all honesty, when you said you wanted to do a fanzine... I thought you were going to do all of the writing. I thought it was an ambitious project. I haven't read a DEFIANT comic in over 10 years. I haven't even read the Mighty Samson TPB that I bought awhile back.

If I wanted to write articles, I would have made a fanzine a long time ago. I'd sooner go back to drawing my cartoons if i wanted to write. I quit drawing my cartoons because I was too busy doing my regular job. That rears it's head when I least want it to such as today. I was going to work 12 hours and I ended up working 13. I still may do a very small board project of a hand collated publication. I have a color laser printer, so I had something full color in mind last year. I was just too busy and my window of opportunity passed. We've got a LOT of work slated in the future, so I may be screaming in a few months for a day off. I'm supposed to be leaving work now. I'm punched out, but a storm just came through and it sounds like a tornado roaring outside.

I'm thinking if I can get a good cover featuring the planet Org in full color with the Warriors of Plasm in the background it would cool just to see new WOP art on a cover.


Warrior of Plasm was my least favorite series and a cover with a planet on it doesn't evoke much emotion to me. I'd think a character would inspire more motivation to buy a copy.

There's enough material to fill up volumes. I guess the fun part is editing everything down to a suitable page count.

I look at the magazines from Twomorrows like "Back Issue" and "Alter Ego," and alot of the color images used in those articles are taken straight from online spots like ComicArtFans or google images. I don't know how that works or if no permission is needed since it's online. Or maybe they just get a special thanks credit to use the images.

If CorvetteJim were around, his collecting hunts on Defiant merchandise would make for another good addition on coverage.



People writing an article or review have some degree of "Fair Use" rights. I laugh when I see Lonestar and Mile High Comic watermark their images online. They don't own the cover images.

I'd like to see a Lorca and Chasm facing off each other on a cover. With the angry Suraceen chick in the background with a wicked smile that you don't know which side she's rooting for. Maybe some exotic aliens to fill up the back. Something to bridge the gap or show how they all ended after those cancellations. In limbo. Again, I would sketch but I can't draw. And a Raven Madd easter egg thrown in too. d'oh!

I do have a good cover artist. Shooter said the bad guy was going to win Schism. Chasm looking evil and seated on a throne might be an idea that would symbolize his victory that never got to play out. Maybe have some of the more important DEFIANT heroes laying at his feet, defeated. Throw the dark tower that was the DEFIANT logo prominently in the background would look pretty awesome too. Or, leave the tower off the cover.

That's cool he visited here. I'm not doing the two interviews that I've mentioned. They're in good hands though. I haven't set any interviews up for myself yet. Mayr soon.

Interesting. He appears to have commissions posted on comicartfans.com . If it's the same guy, he put a lot more work into this. I like the background. I'm wondering how much better this would look with some tight & clean inking. I'd love to see what Rudy Nebres would've done with that. Some things he nailed. My only concern here is that it'd be really easy to mess it up with colors because it's got so much detail to it.

He said he's got a really good colorist for this piece. He went to the Kubert school about a year ago. He's literally the hardest working small press artist I know, and as a result he seems to get incrementally better every few months.

That's the kind of people that Valiant & DEFIANT used. This looks better than some of the art they were going to use for Schism. I'l just never forget seeing George Perez at a convention and explaining to a guy that he had to draw the hairs on Wolverine's arm just the right size. Too small, you couldn't see them after it was published. Too big and they all blended together as a blob. I didn't even know who George Perez was at the time. I think of that whenever I see a lot of detail close together.

In all honesty, a desire to be an artists along with time and practice are all it takes. Some people pick it up sooner, but the more you draw, the better you get. Even as lousy as I am, it was becoming more natural the more I did it.

I think the cigarette smoking character on the cover should make it go up in value. I think a stack of these should be set aside and set in a small closed area with an ashtray full of lit cigarettes nearby. He could then sell a scented "cigarette smoke" variant! Smiley
(I made a special cloud 9 smiley with grey smoke instead of pink. )
