Meeting “Bob salley” writer of “Salvagers comics” while taking a look at his comic, which you can grab on “Lulu” was a blast. His new comic that debut this week Oct. 04,2013, shows that we are in store for a great ride. Here is what Bob had to say about his comic.
Hey Bob can you tell me the main idea about your comic?
It’s a sci-fi story like no other. The characters you are following aren’t part of a galactic rebellion or mercenaries, but blue collar workers cleaning up valuable space junk (essentially).
Your artist is really good what was it like working with him.?
George Acevedo is amazing. That’s all I can say about him. The patience of a saint. He has also been a great partner through this… This is my first comic I’ve ever written. So trying to communicate what I want a panel to look like was hard at first. George really helped me see things through an artists mind.
Where did you get the idea for the your first characters?
I always loved the classic team… a leader, a big guy, a little (agile) guy and of course the sexy, but strong female character. Originally, Ty’r was a large Japanese mechanic and Brigby was Mexican. But I wanted to expand the universe, so I made them aliens.
Who is your favorite character, and also are any of these characters based on people from your real life?
Great question… Brigby is my favorite to write. He’s smart, neurotic and financially broke. He’s definitely the most colorful in this Intro-Series. Ty’r is written after one of my co-workers, who’s very good at his job, but often grumpy.
Congrats on issue one. When can we expect the next issue?
Thanks! It was a long road to getting Issue one completed, because I needed to get to a point in the story, where I could introduce the four characters at once. The best part of working backwards is now I have a lot of scripts to move forward with. The 2nd & 3rd Issues are already finished, we just need to draw them up. I’m hoping we’ll have Part 2 of 3 out by Christmas.
With all those scripts ready are you doing a Kickstarter, and When are you starting that?
I wanted to start it right away, but I want to give this first Issue time to reach readers.
I think after a month, we’ll see how well received it is and make a decision from there.
When can we expect your website to go online and will there be short stories?
Again… were going to see how everything goes with this issue and the next one before we launch a website. As for “Short Stories”, we are definitely going to produce “B-Sides” as we are calling them. But our main focus is getting the first story are completed (which we have outlined to be 12 more issues.
Thanks Bob for the wonderful story. Can not wait to see what you have in store.
