Hello, everyone. my name is John.
I'm from the west coast of the United States.
I have been everywhere in the past few years. . .
I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona.
I entered the comic industry in 1995. 96.
I am the assistant editor first and then the editor of the DC Comics branch Wildstorm.
I have been the first writer since 2002, and now I am the first writer.
In the past days of doing comic editing, things have been done on the film side.
We have to print out four films. CMYK.
Then we have to output the movie and save the paper on.
This process is called capture and it takes 20 minutes to make a page.
We'll put all the movies together, put them in a box, then race against time, find FedEx for the night and send them to the printer.
Now, all the work can be done by simply pressing the button or clicking the mouse.
As before, artists will send the pages first, then we will scan them and save them, and now it's all done by email.
Now, we don't even have a page trap anymore.
The technology has become better so we can upload the page directly to the printer.
You can work with the colorurist of Ireland, the artist of the UK, the letterhead of Canada, and then put a comic book together without even seeing everyone except by keeping in touch via email and instant messaging, all this is done through the Internet.
Now it still takes a day to make a page.
I mean, there's no change.
It depends on the adjustment and fine-tuning of the artwork, but what changes is the printing and production time.
Ideally, the manga is done in less than a month.
Faster and easier now.
It's just that you're not in a rush for FedEx to send boxes full of prints and movies to the printer, but now it's all digital.
It is easier for all interested parties to do so.
Well, not only do I write, but I also make books that I use Microsoft Word (Office For Mac)-
I started using the 17 "MacBook Pro from 2012. I use , , and .
I use them because they are cheaper.
Newer versions tend to become more expensive and it will take a long time to get familiar [them].
Even if you do comic books, you don't need the latest devices and software.
You can make animations on Mac or PC which is very cheap and easy.
My work is not made with an iPad, but my artists use a lot of digital devices.
For example, my Batman artist works entirely on the Wacom tablet and does not use a pencil or ink.
The artist I work on chewing (
Cartoon of the layman himself)
Use pencils and ink as he can even sell his personal print as a work of art.
I recently upgraded to it and I used it.
I usually use it in my instant messages and emails.
Artists need something stronger for big documents.
I really don't need heavy hardware because I do production.
But now for menext]
The upgrade will be the latest Mac on the market, no matter which one.
From a completely different perspective, I know it's time to really upgrade the old device to the new settings, [that]
There is still some time.
The current settings are well suited to my needs, so I may be replacing the device in a few months.
A dream set will include a new soup I have 17-
Inch MacBook Pro is loaded with my trade tools every year.
I mean in January of each year, a brand new MacBook Pro.
On the software side, I'm good [what]I have.
I really don't want new software because I have to learn them if I really have new software, which takes a long time.
