Denver Comic Con
June 30 - July 2, 2017
Question Mark is one of the characters that Al created, and at first, I didn’t think I had a handle on him, but I swear that guy writes himself.
Fellow Webcomic Pioneer Robin Dempsey has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the second volume of her high fantasy webcomic LeyLines. Check it out!
Classy. I like him.
He’s certainly one of the more fun characters to write.
Okay! I’m riddled with questions.
You were expecting something else after the Question Mark arrived? (With Hartmann, no doubt.)
As Mary says, ? isn’t one for straight answers. But if it helps, when he says he’s been “on the team,” he means that he’s been working with General Hightower since he started forming The Specialists. And though he is a master of not being seen, he probably hasn’t spent much time on base. (Though you never know where he may be lurking… http://thespecialistscomic.com/page-72/)
My comment above was supposed to be punny. A quasi-reference to question mark and the Riddler. But, since you answered some already…
So he is the same guy that we met earlier in the comic? The one who met with Hartmann.
He’s already a member of the team, so he is NOT the new member.
What does he do? Most likely the information analyst/spy of the team, right?
In reference of good characters writing themselves. Two words: Terminator, self-aware. You don’t want that. 🙂
Yeah, Question Mark mostly gathers intelligence for General Hightower. He’s the “limey” mentioned during Hightower’s presentation to President Truman ( http://thespecialistscomic.com/page-49/ ).
Amazing Answer. You are right, he seems like the guy who would write himself. He is that Awesome.
Thanks, Daeron! I wish the rest of the characters were as cooperative!
Some characters just seem to flow, as if they have been waiting for you to write them. Others are a chore and a labor of Herculean proportions. Go figure.
That’s certainly been my experience.
i don’t like how the major will react with brute
Captain Jansen (Luke)? Yeah, he’s not likely to be very friendly.
I hope the general has president Truman’s answer to the whole übermenschen video.
Good characters usually do write themselves.
I’ve heard that, but I’ve very rarely experienced it. So I don’t like what that suggests about most of my characters…
Not all of them do. But the ones that do write themselves get annoying, because they start twisting the plots around themselves in a spiral of plot destruction that’s hard to control…
And bad characters can do the same thing too, lol.
I’ve heard it said by many a writer that after a time they seem to be separate personalities that don’t like to be written incorrectly. They must act as they always have so the writer in question better stick to it or change the story.
“Because I didn’t want you to.” Great comeback!
Does anyone else think Question Mark looks kind of like Ralph Fiennes?
And typically British (at least in the movies).
And THIS is why? Is my favourite character (which, of course, makes him most likely to be killed off)
Well, to be honest, no one is safe, no matter how witty their dialogue is!
Thank you for the signal boost Shawn!! Much appreciated!!
No problem, Robin. Good luck with the campaign!
The walking enigma, the human black box, the agent in question, the Question Mark. Baroque code name but serviceable to the Empire and the world.
