Soldiers age 10-11. Just beginning

The story is intriguing. It’s a little difficult for me personally to follow along at times because of the structure. This seems like a script to a tv show or a movie. Very interesting what Waller is doing. Could you do one where you write a short bio or blurb about who each character that has shown up so far is?

Of course. There’s a weird thing where the first issue is really earlier. Wallers actions are unclear and will play a bigger role long term. Short term, this mysterious assassin is the main focus. I wrote it like a comic script because that’s how I think. I do feel i’ve gotten better over time.

For a better, understanding you can read the cluncky triton origins and Ying Yang #1 probably would redo them now. Might redo them for the vol. 1 release.

I read all of them in order :slight_smile: Really like how you think and the characters are being built up.

Thanks! Hopefully #3 really changes how you view the direction of the story. Next week on Monday!

Also I’ll work on the blurbs!

Cool! Maybe I should only post on Mondays too and we could be like New Comic Book Wednesdays, but with Fan Fiction and on Mondays. I just get antsy not posting the story as I write it.

I’m down for it!!! I’m just doing weekly so it doesn’t feel like I have giant gaps of waiting for the next story.

So…is Moray a guy or gal, I may have missed the description earlier? Nice time jumps to fill us in on the past while keeping the plot going in equal measure (Titans should try that).
