I've toyed with the idea in of writing a comic in the past, but always dismissed it. I wasn't raised in a very comic-y environment, except for Asterix and Tin-Tin, and I always thought that you sort of had to be raised on the things. Comics only really hoved into my ken in my middle teens, with Deadline magazine; I didn't even read Watchmen till ten years after came out.

But now it I'm beginning to rethink the whole oh-I-could-never-write-a-comic thing. I've got a very strong visual imagination, which might lend itself to the medium. And I have some pretty good ideas. I'm going to have a look at what comics writers have to say about the process, and reassess some of my own yarns in relation to what's out there.
