Project KE samples

This will most likely be the final post of 2012. Oh well, right? I feel as though this year has been a year of developing projects and working out all the nuts and bolts to a few things that could be pretty good. This is the latest sampling of that. I’ve plucked a Public Domain superhero from 1942 off of the pile and am developing him with a new origin story.

The original story has our hero killed by a German U-Boat while fishing with his grandfather. Once he dies, he is then given his specific powers and returns to Earth.¬† My story will take a slightly different start. The hero’s origin will start as a prisoner in KZ Dachau. I’m starting here because a few years back, I visited Dachau and have always wanted to use that experience in my work. I believe this is a perfect way to do so.

Also–the protagonist will be a self portrait. This is the only way I can be a super hero, an artist¬† as well as a complete narcissist, all at the same time. Happy hunting!

    Still your fan back in Ridgefield, CT. Bought your book even though no kids in my house anymore…one day, grandkids maybe. Looking forward to seeing where this concept takes you! Wishing you and your family a great holiday season.
