Grant Alter - Struggling Comic Writer

Sunday, December 23, 2007


2007 sucked.
2008 is the year.
Here's what I'm working on.

Project 1 - Secret Superhero Project - with Seth Damoose. I ain't tellin'.
Project 2 - Dinosaur book - with DJ Keawekane. Fun actiony blockbuster.
Project 3 - Hurricane Kids - with Ryan Cody. Back as a reimagined webcomic?
Project 4 - Freaks - with Matt Schuler. This one's a mystery.
Project 5 - Stolen - with Craig Henderson. This one's gonna find its legs in 2008.
Project 6 - Tales From the Front - with Mike Boldt. A webcomic. Look for it bi-weekly starting in April.
Project 7 - Triad - with Zack Finfrock. This is my first attempt at manga.

Also on deck is a short in volume 2 of Villains, drawn by Charles Clark.
And my story, The Wager, should be debuting in volume 2 of Popgun.
So as you can see, I'm quite busy.
And I have a couple more irons I want to put in the fire.
Look out.


  • Hello,

    I know this may sound like spam but its not. I have no Viagra or Stock tips to sell you.

    I stumbled across your blog and as an aspiring comic book writer myself I just wanted to say hello and let you know that you are not alone out there.

    I read your post about secrecy and just wanted you to know that I understand, both on a "professional" level but also sometimes on a personal level. Life isn't easy and putting yourself out there or exposing your ideas is a scary thought. I tend to think of mine as children.

    Anyway please keep the blog up to date. I hope everything pans out for you in 2008 and I hope you don't mind getting bothered by complete strangers.

  • Hey dude,

    I found you through Popgun! I'm wondering what your method for proposing projects and getting published for writing is as opposed to being an artist? Being a writer you're much more often the initiator, as you're the one with the idea and need someone to illustrate. I'm interested in switching rolls, you see!

  • Hey Grant,

    I have both Viagra and Stock tips to sell you...

    I know Grant won the Guitar from Black Snake Moan....but he sold it cause he likes Money better.

    He's a shill. But I love him.

    He's BFF.


    On a serious note. I hope we get the Green light on our thing asap.
