Deadline! Deadline!

Published by under Journalism

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

That’s fine, but that’s probably why there are so few (clothed) females in comic books.
