Therapy for Superheroes, p17 (A prequel to the #comics character who shoots his author. #becominghero)

Updates Saturdays. Artist Nathan Ssagala.

Did you forget this was about the comics character who shoots his author?

You forgot, didn’t you, that this is still a story about the comic book superhero who shoots his author, right?


(An informal webcomic in the world of BECOMING HERO, the novel about a comic book character who shoots his author, and the comic book reader who may have to stop him. Great meta superhero fiction for fans of Deadpool, Animal Man, Last Action Hero, Stranger than Fiction, Superboy-Prime, She-Hulk, Cerebrus the Aardvark, AmbushBug, and other author-meeting fourth-wall-breaking “rage against the author” tropists.)

Amadeus (author): “Melchers had such a gentle writing style.”
Illustrator: “Overwritten, if you ask me. No action. Only reason we haven't re-vamped that origin story? It's not well-known. Makes a good secret collector's item for the super-nerds. No one cares, you know? She's just a girlfriend.”
Amadeus: “Don't you care? She was your character, too. You've been drawing her for years.”
Illustrator: “Just finish your character research, Greg. It shouldn't take this long to kill off a character.”
Amadeus: “I just want to get his arc right.”
Illustrator: “Two words: zombie-plant. This is a boy's comic, don't write like a girl.”
Amadeus: “I--”
Illustrator: “Zombie. Plant.”
Amadeus: “Okay, okay! Just not yet.”
