The Adventures of Johnny Thunder

27 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I've started work on my latest installment of the AoJT(1)(2). It will probably be slow going as it is the season for the two Xs (that's eXams and X-mas), but I hope not to go too long between updates.

Historical Note: This adventure takes place prior to that documented in Johnny Thunder and the Cave or Terror.

So without further ado, I present the Adventures of Johnny Thunder: Johnny Thunder and Blackheart's Gold.

Footnotes:

(1) That's Adventures of Johnny Thunder. Maybe I can get a LOTR, or AOTC, thing going on here.

(2) This is my first attempt at using footnotes here, how did you like it?

One question: Do you write the story first and then you shoot the pictures or is the story developing while shooting?!?

This web site is also a great source. With great Moc's as well

Actually, that is the website that I do my "fact checking" from. When I need to make sure I have one of the official character's names spelt right and things like that, I check Mr. Rasmussen

Well after eleven days, I've finally got around to doing four more scenes for you... Yes, part IV is now available for your viewing pleasure:

Hope you like it. Comments are welcome,

P.S. For those of you following closely, you'll notice a change in Ms. Shaw. Well I wasn't totally happy with her face. I wanted something more unique and recognizable, and having recently acquired a Deep Freeze Defender, the part of Calliope Shaw will be played by the Ice Planet Babe.

Yes, I know it was quick, but I figured, since I went so long on the last ones, I'd do a double entry for today. Thus, Part VI is now done and ready for viewing. Hope you like it.

Nice from what I red so far. Nice stages for backgrounds. Have you thought about turning the stories into a comic ? :)

Thats a good idea, perhaps you should ask if anyone here is good at doing sketches for storyboards :)

How do you mean? As in a drawn comic, like we used to see on FBTB? Or a photo-based comic? Or something totally different from either?

Wow! I'm really impressed by your little adventure here! I can imagine that it took you some time to get it all together, it's not just to take a shot and add some text. It takes more than that. All the planning of the scenes, all those cool details everywhere and the great quality of the photos. I'm very interested in getting to know what happens next, and I guess I'm not the only one :)

What a treat!

Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words. There isn't a lot of planning really. The hardest part is trying to get the scene set up with a totally brick background, well that and trying to figure out how to get my heroes out of the situations I create for them. I had a hard time with some of both of those here. I'm glad you like it.

I'm very interested in getting to know what happens next, and I guess I'm not the only oneĀ 

And you shouldn't have to wait long, the story in complete, and I just have to post it over the next few days.

Well all, here is another update. I think it is Part VIII. The story in now complete, and I think it will last two more days if I post my standard four scene updates daily. I might do a double posting tomorrow so I don't have to break up the conclusion. It is actually one scene longer than the Cave of Terror story.

So here you go, scenes 33-36:

Well here are the last scenes in the story. Hope you liked it. I'd be grateful for comments, so I can improve my work, both building and writing. Is there anything you think I did well and would like to see more of? Anything you think I did poorly and would like to see less of?

Here it is:

P.S. For anyone who is wondering, I've started planning the next one... actually I'm mentally working on two, can't decide which to do first yet.
