Here's my 1st 8-hour plot line! #Ironhand24H #24HCD

"An idealistic Chinese boy raised on the myth of the Zhao Gongming, God of Money, has  a rivalry with his family and decides to travel the world and eventually starts a successful business out of a motel. But this leaves a bad taste in his mouth, and due to a misunderstanding, ends up lost near Stonehenge. 

While walking at night he overhears a negative remark about the Chinese God of Wealth from two people standing in the middle of the Stonehenge circle. When he walks up to them to set them straight, the intensity of his angry emotions towards the naysayers, rips a tear in the multiverse (it was already there but just smaller). 

What looks like 'smoke' pours out of the rip and blinds him. He sees a clear hole in the smoke where he glimpses the two people he heard earlier and they are standing in a different Universe. Behind them he sees his face on a billboard (and almost everywhere)! He has literally taken over the world there and has become a real life "Zhao Gongming", crushing his people. It was him they were talking about!"

Done in 10 minutes. Courtesy of the 'm-Theory Story Building Cards System"
What do you think??

For some writers, creating fictional characters is the toughest part of making stories. With so many variables to fill in, anyone can get confused pretty quickly. This exercise distills many of those variables down to just a few powerful ones. You'll have your character fleshed out within ...

COOLNESS NEWS: You ever heard the story of those 49'er Gold pan handlers, back in the day, that had a chance to go to a particular part of the river to pan for gold BUT didn't? 

Then someone else goes to that spot....and finds a HUGE chunk of something valuable?

Don't be that first pan handler...go to this event.

Posted by Nathan Vargas:

Oh wow. This is amazing. 

During ComicCon 2013, I clearly remember saying to Anthony, a co-creator,  "Next year Blitz Comics will be on a speaking panel here. Oh yeah."

Well... it's happening! Our panel has been CONFIRMED by the Executive Director of ComicsPRO, a ComicCon partner.

Check out the details below. It's our first time!

----------------------------------
Friday, July 25th
5:15PM – 6:15PM
Celebration of 24 Hour Comic Day: 2014 is the 10th anniversary of 24 Hour Comic Day. Please come by and celebrate with us! We'll reminisce about past years while also discussing how to make October 4th, 2014 the best 24 Hour Comic Day ever. Room 18
----------------------------------

Nathan and Anthony with be guest panel speakers talking about how and why they created the 24HCD Survival Guide and how it has helped thousands of artists worldwide complete the challenge. They will sit next to the founder of the event, Nat Gertler, and share the stories and experiences that this unique event brings every year in October.
----------------------------------

I don't usually get nervous but I have to say, this is a big dream come true. 

So tell your friends and have them come hear us speak at ComicCon 2014. Marvel at two small town friends who came up from obscurity to finally stand on a world stage and make a difference for aspiring creators.

Dreams do come true and remember, it's better to be done!

(Nathan) I'm using my newly invented story building system called "m-Theory". Here's my first story! A Chinese Myth/Weird Tale/Multiverse genre O_o

I'm also following the #Ironhand24H Comics Day Triathlon rules as a trial test for how it'll go down at APE next weekend. This story will be done in 8 hours! 

Now to fill in the plotline sheet. I'll post a picture of the finished plotline next.
