The dead do rise!I'm taking a comics class at ASU, and I may end up posting my project if I like how it turns out. This is just a test for now, I want to see how this cover looks on a few different devices.

Interesting getting a glimpse of your art school projects. :-D

I love a good time travel story, and appreciate the wistfulness in visiting a favorite place from your youth that is no longer there. (If only I could go back to Toys R Us in its heyday.) You're certainly better off using models of your own design. I've had thoughts of putting out a book of my comics, but the fact that I use official LEGO designs and names has kept me from going forward. I imagine nods to official LEGO stuff could get by. Congrats on graduation and good luck getting the transportation sorted!

Well, I probably wouldn't be using as many box stock builds as you do. It's a time travel story, and I intend on depicting many real-world places and landmarks. That means I'll probably have to design much of it myself or borrow designs that other people have posted online. So, I can probably mostly get away with what I already own and used lots, but it's going to have to wait. I'm graduating in a couple months, and I'm trying to sort out a replacement for my aging truck so that I can get back to work with Grub Hub.
I'll probably work in some recognizable themes, though. The Pirate, Castle, Ninja, and Western themes could obviously come in handy (particularly that last one, considering the story's geographic setting), and I'd love to build a nod to Brickolini's (from the first "Lego Island"). Bob (the guy in the green vest) often uses the time machine to just revisit a long-closed pizza place from his childhood, so if I'm going with Lego, I can't NOT do that.

I would definitely like to see your take on a LEGO comic! Yeah, LEGO can be pricey. Best deals I've seen are at Walmart. Depending on what you have in mind, you could find good deals on certain sets.

I'm not an art student, this cover is just from a class that I took to establish residency (basically, ASU wanted more of my money since I was a transfer student). The other pages on this "comic" are just miscellaneous stuff from my spriting days, nothing from school. It was easier to share the templates and whatnot with other people this way than using an image hoster, because the ones that I was using at the time kept screwing with the proportions
As I was completing the assignments for this comics class, I realized that I'm missing a lot of the foundation I'd need to really produce this thing at a level that I'd be satisfied with. So, I'm actually thinking about taking a leaf from your book and doing it with Lego. It's definitely on the back burner for now, though, as money is tight and I'm busy with other stuff.
