Ill’s Review Forum

Published by under Review Forums

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.

I’m working on a superhero story about a struggle between two masterminds and their ideals: Maya, a cheerful, impulsive girl who hates all humans because of her ability to read minds, and Donovan Haw (based off of the Doings of Raffles Haw), a multi-billionaire who traveled the world in an attempt to make the world a better place.

The superhero story is for a doujin game to be sold in Japan. It’s a Visual Novel, a “choose-your-own-adventure” game with scenery and pictures of the main characters.

Anti-zombie research is proceeding apace

Published by under Comedy,Eccentric Tangent

The U.S. Army bought about 100,000 M4s last fiscal year, improving the nation’s zombie readiness levels from “doomed” to “screwed.”  In your face, zombies! Also, the Navy is working on a electromagnetic railgun.  When the zombie dolphins are upon us, we’ll be ready.
It's not like Aquaman's gonna stop them.

Other exciting military technology that could mess some zombies up:

  • Nuclear rifles
  • Flying jeeps
  • Chain-saw robots.  Brilliantly, these would be powered by biomass furnaces, which would keep fallen humans and plants from turning into enemy combatants.  (Also, gasoline would surely be in shorter supply than bodies).

Published by under Writing Exercises

Here’s a wacky writing challenge inspired by Sporcle.  Write a plot synopsis as a haiku.  Here’s my favorite, one for Don Quixote:

Delusional man

Partner rides on a donkey

Terrorist windmills
