First off, much apologies for the site being down. It seems that the forum has grown so much that I needed to upgrade AGAIN. Maida did a terrific job putting out any fires and now we’re up and running for the long haul. Again, I missed everyone and am very, very, sorry.
That said, I’ve finished the fifth issue script to “Sgt. Rock – The Lost Battalion” today. I actually finished it last week, but with the hope that it was going to be a seven issue series, but received the news that we’ll only have six yesterday. I was incredibly depressed, but decided to get back to work today and finally finished it. The actual battle took place over seven days (and each of our issues is labeled “ ay One” etc.) so the series really should be seven issues but what are you gonna do? Again, I was really bummed as I felt I’m not doing justice to the men who served — the whole damn story is like a Hans Zimmer soundtrack, and know it would be SO much better if I had that last issue.
There’s just so much info, drama and humanity to be added but again, I will do my best to portray the valor of those men as best we could.
I spent the weekend with 1400 other history nuts, doing a full scale WW2 Battle of the Bulge reenactment at Fort Indiantown Gap, PA. It was an absolute blast and one of the best times I’ve ever had. I had the opportunity to portray both a German (Friday) and US correspondent (Thursday, Saturday) and hung out with a bunch of great guys and gals, took almost 800 photos and experienced an inspiration that I’ll never forget. Solof, Angel Doggie and Black Cat Guy promised to come — so guess what guys, there’s another in March! I’ll write more about it in detail for my coming Newsarama column.
Anyhoo, let me get back to work, but man, am I exhausted from all the running around, setting up all the photoshoots, getting up a 5am and just having a grand ol’ time.
I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
