People who are at least a little bit familiar with my amazon comics, will know that most of my stories are more than just wham-bam female bodybuilder muscle and domination action. Indeed, I love to write longer stories that have an actual plot, and in which we can see the characters grow and develop both physically and mentally, get into conflicts, and experience different things, basically like a character in a novel. To that extent, many of my comics are similar to graphic novels.
While I appreciate every customer and any purchase that a customer makes, it therefore always pains me a little bit when I see customers skipping certain episodes in a series, or even just starting in the middle, and not reading the first or first two episodes. They seem to think it's not so important to follow the whole plot or the development of the character.
Of course some people may have a limited budget for my comics, and only buy the products that look the most attractive. I can totally understand that, and they do what they want, of course. But I just think that really developing the amazons' character makes for much more sexiness and excitement. Build-up adds depth to characters, makes it easier for us to understand them, and above all, makes them much more real and therefore realistic. And that's important for excitement.
There's also something great that happens when things are being foreshadowed, but that you have to wait a while to get there. Before the big confrontation that you are hoping for, there may be more subtle things or signs that can be oh so sexy.
Take, for instance, the Katie series
, which is my longest series to date and spans a period of multiple years (both in terms of what's happening in the series and in terms of my producing it). From pretty early on, when Katie's father Hank objects to Katie going to the gym and working out, it becomes clear that there will be, at some point a confrontation between Hank and a by then much bigger Katie.
But it doesn't happen right away. Before that, we see Katie lifting heavier weights than her dad, or her being able, at a very young age, to pry open a jar that her father is unable to open. We also see Katie getting more and more dominant in her thoughts and actions, and that makes the actual facing of her dad, and what she does to him later in the story, much more realistic.
The same can be said about Katie's relationship with George Drooney, a celebrity who has every reason to be very assertive and confident. Katie is not taken aback by him, and takes the lead.
Bottom line: I hope you appreciate the effort I put in plotting, writing, dialogue, character development, and that you experience yourself how these add to your overall excitement and pleasure when reading my comics. (but if you just want action, there's plenty of that in my comics as well, of course).
