Quick introduction to all on LBCentral!
I'm a professional comic book creator living in the UK and I've been addicted to LBP from the start! My intention is to render my ongoing series, 'Monkey Nuts', in episodic stages, retelling, expanding and adding to the stories I've created with original artwork from my brother and TONS of imaginative puzzles!
My psn is mrbobbyboy so you guys feel free to go ahead and add me - always up for some quality co-op!
Can't wait to contribute more!

Hey Hero - thanks for the shout! Really looking forward to sharing ideas, working with others, and just producing original levels with genuinely cool prizes at the end - I'll be making a mixture of copyrighted items and open ones to mix things up!

Welcome to the forums mate,
Just thought when you said you were a comic book writer that people will probably just make levels that look like a comic book and you walk through the boxes to tell the story. That would be quite cool.
Just asking if you don't mind if i add you to our TIME ZONES thread, where i'm collecting everyone's time zones and PSN so it'll be easier to see who you are more likely to hook up with in the game http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1089&highlight=time+zone
Noticed your from England too so your obviously GMT 0 so i'll add you to the list. If you don't want to be on it just say and i'll remove you
Hope you like it here, everyone is friendly bunch

Hey Dorien,
Thanks so much for the add on that thread - yeah, that was something I was wondering about. I work from home so I'll probably doing my level design on my lunchbreak and my level playing at night ... guess that means I'll be good to hook up with most players at some point!
Everyone seems really welcoming here - it's a fantastic site! Really looking to get together with a group of regular UK players, so we can help each other unlock everything and expand the game! Bring on the fun!

Welcome bobby :) Something about the guys who choose that avatar.. they all seem to be pretty awesome in their own way. Ive read a few of your posts in other threads already and its great to have you here :)

Comics are rare in England... Is it an actual comic or an internet one, like that ninja doctor guy :)

Would love to see a page or two in any case.

Hey Maltay - thanks for the wicked post! I'm glowing with pride!
Yeah, I write for two titles.
'The DFC' (www.thedfc.co.uk) - two stories, 'Monkey Nuts' and 'The Strange, Strange World of Weird!' - weekly subscription only.
'Transformers Animated' - launching in the UK in October, available from all good newsagents!
You're right though, comics in the UK are raaaaaaaaaaaaaare!
I just hope I can bring some of my creativity to this wicked LBP community!

Cool! I hope so - it's the comic tie-in to the animated series on TV at the moment. Should be good fun!

All you've got to do is strive to work harder than everyone else, never give up, believe in yourself and your projects, and learn from every experience - both good and bad. Oh, and keep pushing yourself to achieve more - that's the key to success!

I think i'm right in saying its his brother that does the illustrations, and they are proffessionals, and he has mentioned to me before that his brother never has time for anything (Which is understandable)... Basicaly he has got a job to do, but I can't answer for him (Which I already seem to have done :P)

Wow that's some nice work right there! Welcome to the forums! And if it's not too personal: how much do you get paid?

mrbobbyboy
09-01-2008, 02:22 PM
Well it all depends on the job - rates differ from title to title. I don't really want to talk about the money (I'm quite ENGLISH in that manner!) but needless to say, as a writer, I need to be producing strips for about 3-4 different titles in order to be able to make an okay wage. Nothing great, but I can live off it, and that's good enough for me!!!
The money will always come second to me, it's not why my brother and I create. We'd been doing this for five years (producing a 24 page black and white bi-monthly indy title) before we landed our first pro job. It takes a lot of time to get into the industry, even at the lowest level, which is why you have to love what you do more than a big paypacket!
