Life Sucks or Why I Love Dean Lee
Dean is my co-everything on the web-comic STARSEARCHERS– look us up on Facebook. Without him, STARSEARCHERS exists only in my teenage notebooks, and not as an actual THANG that is out there in the webiverse. He’s a lot busier these days than he was, so any chance to collab with him is a good thing. I was delighted to hear from him recently, asking if I could script a one page story using some ideas he had.
One page? Difficult, yes, but I wasn’t about to say no to Dean. As I recall, his idea was about a man who was tired at work, and the tiredness involved a woman, but he wanted a twist to it. And thus the one-page wonder that is LOVE SUCKS was born.
When he completed his as-always fantastic artwork/coloring/lettering on the script I submitted to him, the only critique I had was that the 1-page format did not do justice to the twist at the end.
I love any chance to work with Dean. I’d love nothing more than to be able to pay him a comfortable wage to bring all of our ideas to life. Maybe one of these days… until then, here’s LIFE SUCKS. Let us know what you think:
