DCUO Comic - Shot Entirely in a Virtual World

1 of 4

What started as a "I wonder if I could do this" project became a madness, really.

I'm a writer by nature.  I've been playing DC Universe Online for a long while, and it struck me that there's a story in there waiting to be told.  There's a storyline you adventure along, but there's a larger one there too.  So that's where this came from.  The desire to tell the story of a reluctant and unsung hero in the DC Universe.

"Most of the heroes in DCUO go unnoticed, compared to the heavy hitters like Superman. Most are grunts on the ground doing the important, daily work to keep Metropolis safe. This is one story."

How did I do it?  400 screenshots, 64 gig of drive space, running an instance too many times to count, and filming it so I could understand Zatanna's spell.  Seriously, that's messed up.

What's posted here are the first few pages.  If you want to see more, they're all on a Deviant Art page you can find at http://mud2mmo.deviantart.com/gallery/44734854

I'm also looking for some feedback, so opinions, good and bad, are appreciated.

See, I've played video games since Intellivision and Atari 2600 and PONG back in the day. Retro-gaming doesn't really fire me up as much as seeing how the community ticks. And after seeing way too many "I'm too young to have played this game when it first came out but it MAKES ME SO ANGRY" reviewers who would happily eviscerate my childhood for lulz... yeah I tossed my hat into the ring. the quickly scooped it back up, I'm told I have a bald spot that needs...more »
