Scripts and WIPs for the floppy?
« on: 21 February, 2018, 09:36:31 pm »
I was thinking how recent strips are turning up in the floppy, would it be an idea to flesh them out with scripts, cover WIPs from Pete's covers blog etc?

Might be a bit different to just reprinting something recent verbatim.

Covers, covers uncovered and scripts would be great.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Yeah I'd tend to think that would be a good idea. Kinda the DVD release with extras after the cinema release.

Nah, I always hate it when books are padded out with filler like this - covers are OK, but when I've read a fully finished story, why would I want to see the pencils or the script? Some of the Marvel and DC books really take the piss, nothing more annoying than buying a fat GN only to find that half of it is "classic" reprint, scripts, sketches etc rather than original content.

I think it depends on how this is presented. Some book just shove a load of sketches in the back as filler, or an entire script for a 24-page episode. That's yawnsome. But I like the sketchbook bits at the back of Hellboy/BPRD universe books, which outline how the creators approached things like monster design, storylines, and compositions. Context adds value.

Covers are fine but the rest I always skip

I like covers in my trades and indeed like them to have all the relevant covers. Sketches I can take or leave. They are ok if they show how the look of a character evolved from conception to the page, but I don’t want pages and pages of them.

Considering many floopies struggle to even cram in relevant covers, I highly doubt the Megazine editors are going to work to make room for scripts and other extras.

Now, a one off dedicated script-only floppy? I might be down for that.

Not sure I'd be bothered about seeing scripts in a floppy, but a printed version of Pete Wells' Covers Uncovered blog every 4 months or so would be fantastic!

Also, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the illustrated prose stories from the old yearbooks collected (assuming that hasn't already happened :-\).

Pretty sure the Neil Gaiman rookie story got reprinted (or at least released in digital form) for obvious reasons...

Definitely. I want this. I want this very much.
