I am really jazzed up about MySpace. I am up to now 40+ friends with still dkhlogo.gifmore pending. The lastest one is Dark Horse Comics. One, I was happy to be added as I love their books and two, as a would be writer, I threw out some interest about the Star Wars Infinity graphic novels – which they replied back. Very cool; indeed. If you are not familiar with this series, think of it as Marvel’s What If or DC’s Elseworld. The Infinity series is set only in the Star Wars Universe and looks at the certain point Star Wars movie lore and shows what would happen if….  For example, the first book dealt with if Luke Skywalker was not able to blow up the Death Star and continued with an alternate ending. I loved the first one as this was the strongest of the three.I am really jazzed up about MySpace. I am up to now 40+ friends with still more pending. The lastest one is Dark Horse Comics.

I sent a quick message to Dark Horse about the future of this series. Here’s is there reply:

Hey Montgomery,

I was wondering if there are any further plans to continue with this series? I have all three graphic novels and I would love to see more including writing some myself. Just a thought to pass along.
Thanks,
Montgomery (Monster)

This leaves me with several options but one for right now would make me the happiest until things change in the future. Right now, I have about 1 issue of a 4 part issue completed. Of course, the draft is very early but I think this Infinity-like story is strong. Since I suck at drawing, I wish I didn’t, I would like anyone reading this post who would like to bring the story to life via illustrations. This would be only be done for fun, for free, and for fans. If something appears over the horizon with Dark Horse then there would be compensation for the work. Let me know if you are interested, please let me know.
