Grant Alter - Struggling Comic Writer

Private Made Public

Since the point of this blog is to share what being a "struggling comic writer" is all about, I thought I would do this task publicly. I will, of course, be careful with the details I divulge, but if nothing else, it should give you an idea of what I am working on right now.

To regroup and clear my head, I figured I would make a listing of my projects in process and write down status and who I am working with and all that where I can. That way, I know what I need to work on.

The Hurricane Kids - "All Ages Hero" - With Ryan Cody - Currently working on plotting, but waiting on details from publisher.

Fractured - With Tommy Smith - Currently on hold. Indefinite hiatus.

Stolen - "Werewolf/horror project" - With Craig Henderson - First script written, the remaining 4 plotted - Waiting on art to complete submission.

The Sword - "anthology with Derek Ruiz" - Currently collecting scripts and searching for artist contributors. If you're an artist and would like to draw an 11 page short, let me know in the comments how to see some of your art and how to contact you.

Untitled Zombie Splitbook - With Derek Ruiz and as yet secret artist - Concept developed. Working on plotting and character creation.

Max Kane - "classic sci-fi pulp" - with Shaun Polakow and Matthew Schuler - waiting for the stars to align.

Movie screenplay - sci-fi action film - retooling rough outline and character creation.

Prison project - Currently looking for an artist and working on characters and plotting. Again, if you're interested, let me know and we can talk. I see this book being pretty dark and violent.

Superhero project - need to develop concept and find artist for fun superhero style.


  • Grant, I am interested in colaborating with someone and your description of the prison book sound like it fits the bill.
    I have been a mural and photo-real airbrush artist for 28 years, and during that time I have taken on numerous comic and comic-related projects.
    I hope you can access these,(I'm not the computer geek fer sure!)
    They should give you a feel for my style and range, and they're all my work: pencils, inks, and colours(ooh, Canadian spelling!)
    I can get you some panel-to-panel as well I just don't have anything scanned at this time.
    You can reach me at:
    All the Best and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
