DragonFUZE #28

I know there is still a whole month to go until the end of the year, but I have been giving a lot of thought to my creative goals for 2009, especially since 2008 has been such a wash out where I haven't progressed or met any of the creative goals I set for myself at the start of this year.

In 2009 I expect to move on to a more challenging job, our kid will be approaching the age of two and entering childcare and I hope we will have another baby on the way. Depending on how the economy travels, we may also move to a new house. So, forgive the mention of the real world, but next year is looking to be a big one.

Somewhere in all of that I need/ want to hit my stride creatively. Over the last few years I have taken steps towards my goal of being a published comic book writer, but I am a writer/ creator with ADHD; I come up with an idea, get really excited about it, leap into it without much thought, talk it up to other creators/ friends and then... PFFFT! So, in 2009 I am hauling back on the ideas and honing all of my creative work to focus on one thing only; phayries.

So, here is the plan. I have one artist lined up to do a Tikki/ Malinki comic; the story will be no more than 2 issues and will chronicle my two mischievous heroes coming face to face with a tribe of giants! My plan is to make this book happen in the first 6 months of 2009. If all goes well, then I have one more Tikki/ Malinki comic story up my sleeve and hopefully I can make that happen too.

Besides that, I want to have finished planning/ plotting my novel Enshae: Phayrie Dawn and to have at least started on the manuscript.

There you go, my creative plan for 2009; completely and utterly focused on my own creations. That's the way it should be.

You can keep track of my progress on my comic book project right here. To keep up to date with happenings in the world of Enshae: Phayrie Dawn, visit my DragonFUZE Creative blog.

Here is an awesome image, I assume a cover image, from the comic book adaptation of Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans. Looks like this time around they are going for a more traditional comic book style, as opposed to the murky art that appeared in the adaptation of Underworld and Underworld: Evolution; I am happy about that!

The cover features vampire elder, Viktor, in the background and doomed lovers Sonia (Viktor's daughter) and Lucian (a lycan leader). I also love the lycan and vampire deathdealer rushing at each other.

I know, I know, it's only one image from a comic, but I am getting so excited about this movie!

"I think they're still going, they probably will. I'm not sure I will," she told us. "I feel like I've played that character enough times that I don't think I'd be excited to play the same character again. It's a weird experience. I've never done that before, you're playing the same character in two movies, and after two, I feel like I'm kind of done with that."

Way to break the hearts of thousands of fanboys, Ms Beckinsale! Well, it seems that's the way the vampire Deathdealer crumbles... No more Kate, no more Selene, no more Underworld - or is there? Well Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans is on its way to the silver screen early next year. Depending on how well that movie does, there is room for the franchise to continue sans the lovely Beckinsale.

Rhona Mitra is the Kate stand in for the prequel, but she doesn't survive this movie (OOPS! SPOILER!!), so she can't appear in any future movies. But, there must be hundreds of hot women who look like Kate/ Rhona, so why not take the franchise into a sort of "behind the scenes" direction where we learn more about some of the Deathdealers/ Lycans who are not quite on the front lines of the war?

Now, granted, these would probably be more like direct to DVD movies, but I'd buy them. What about a TV series? You could call it Underworld: The War of Shadows and the show could spotlight some of the sideline conflicts/ characters. Anyway, I have to go, type up my treatment and send it off to my buddy Raze aka Kevin Grevioux!
