One Lucky Bride is a 40 page romantic comedy finished in July 2017. It got picked up by Emet Comics and will be one of four short stories featured in Fresh Romance Vol. 2. Print release date is set for Fall 2017.
Currently the entire story is available to read online, but once the book is released, I'll take down all the pages except the first 16. Below is a sampling of the opening scenes.
OLB is a remake of the 1925 film Seven Chances starring Buster Keaton. I'm a big fan of silent films and this one is a favorite because of the simple sweet storyline and of course the heart stopping stunts that Buster is famous for. In my version, I have modeled the main character partly after the Great Stone Face, retaining the deadpan expression and patient endurance of ever more ridiculous situations. The love interest now has a more active role in the story, steering clear of that "damsel in distress" role that was all too common in that era of cinema. The story climaxes with a chase scene involving hundreds of angry would-be brides, giving me the chance to draw wedding dresses of all styles!
