minicomics ??, post 14: jurassic plants

OK.  I now know a lot more about the plants of the Jurassic period than I did before.  This hardly makes me a paleobotanist, but it’s good enough for a minicomic. Common flora of the Jurassic period included tree ferns, … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 13: sidebar, detour, or work avoidance?

It’s not work avoidance, really– it’s a weird day and there’s lots of stuff going on outside of the Brontosaurus story that I have to attend to.  But that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about it. Specifically, I’m thinking about … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 12: a sketch of the time viewer

In The Day of the Brontosaurus, the story begins and ends with a young artist’s chalk drawing on a sidewalk; a drawing of a silly science fiction device that allows its operator to see the past.  He calls it the … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 11: sixteen pages!

I was thinking this was going to be a twelve pager (a mini-and-a-half, as I like to think of it), but it looks like the Brontosaurus Minicomic is going to be a full fledged double, sixteen pages long.  Those extra … Continue reading

Hello, and welcome back to Minicomics Live, issue ??, the “live” blogging minicomics project featuring an unreliable internet connection.  We are back, we are working, and the script is breaking apart into pages in a more or less orderly way.  … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 9: a finished (?) script

It may not look like much, but I’ve been working on this all day.  If you’ve read the previous versions, you’ll see it hasn’t really changed much, just evolved into “mostly finished” form.  But writing dialog and setting all the … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 8 : anne elk

It is a shocking, shocking thought, but it’s at least remotely possible that not everyone reading this is totally, intimately, word for word familiar with every single episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.  (I know.  It’s a mind bending concept.  … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 7– a sketch

The elusive internet appears … in time to show you a first sketch.  This does not depict a scene from the story (Day of the Brontosaurus? Sidewalk Opinions?), since I think a trip to the bank to score some free … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 6: just thought of something

Just thought of something: a story about the Brontosaurus wouldn’t be complete without a Sinclair gas station behind the sign of the green sauropod.  I will have to add one, perhaps on the road to the Cliffside.

minicomics ??, post 5– more script

Really cooking with gas now.  This is an odd but nice little story about the nature of time.  I am starting to think “Day of the Brontosaurus” is going to be the finished title.  When I write a super short … Continue reading
