Hello, and Welcome to the world of The Crimson Fly, an animated comic! So what is the Crimson Fly? Its the story of the adventures a young vigilante, The Crimson Fly, as he stumbles, kicks and vaults his way above, below, and through a city that doesn’t want him, and learns what it means to be a hero. He’s not very strong, fast or smart, and he doesn’t always know what’s going on, but the Fly’s got heart and determination to spare! And he’s going to need it! In addition to the criminals, the gangs and the freaks, He’s got to contend with the law that doesn’t want to deal with him, a public that fears him, and a cityscape that certainly was built for superheroes. But if anyone’s going to make it as a superhero, its the Fly! Lets hope he doesn’t crash and burn first!
The format for this story is an animated comic. What does that mean? Exactly what it says on the tin! There’s animation in this comic. There’s always going to be a panel where something can move. That said, its not automatic. It’ll be up to you to find where, when and how things are animated. What does this mean? Well, you’ll see.
As you may/may not have noticed, there are no comics on this page, nor is there a link to a website for the comic, yet. That’s because I’m still in the pre-production stages. The actual comic will not arrive until next year. Wait, Wait, Wait! That doesn’t mean that there won’t be stuff to show until then. The purpose of this page as it currently stands is to keep you all in the loop until the comic is finally finished and published! So from here until the release date in January next year (I haven’t set an exact date), you’ll be taking the journey with me, watching as I design characters and environments, follow me on livestream as I illustrate and animate pages, and weigh in on design choices as they are posted to the blog. It should be a fun ride!
So, in closing, welcome to the world of The Crimson Fly, an animated comic by me, Collin Byrd (the writer, the illustrator, the animator, and the programmer)! Hope you enjoy the experience!
