"10 Days Cover" (July 2007)

This was my first real comic book commission. Even though I didn't get paid for it, it was an honor to do.
I used to write comic book fan-fiction and another writer from the site I belonged to asked me to do a cover for his series at the time.
It was titled, "10 Days".
The story was about a man who had done terrible things in his lifetime and was on the verge of death. An angel appeared and offered him the ability to not die from his wounds. In essence, a chance for him to right his wrongs before dying. The catch was his "invulnerability" would only last a set amount of time. The series chronicled his last 10 days on earth.
The two series I wrote were: Wonder Woman Beyond and Legends of Wonder Woman (click on the hyperlinks to read them). My favorite issue was Wonder Woman Beyond #3.
Looking back over my writing a few years later, I do cringe at some of those stories yet I was proud of all I had written. I went from writing every once in a while to churning out a new full-length story every month! And I met some AMAZING people along the way.
Unfortunately the fan-fiction site disbanded shortly after that, much like the Avengers (I'm a dork, I know!). A newer, more condensed site was started last year and the administrator asked me to continue writing again. But I declined. I guess my heart wasn't into it or maybe I was resisting too much. *shrugs shoulders*
Perhaps I'll go back and start writing fan-fiction again. Who knows. It was terribly FUN and the closest thing I'd ever gotten to writing actual comic books!
