John Byrne has given his blessings for us to produce a fan fic project from this plot for The Invisible Woman Limited Series. I would like to ink a couple of pages. We only have the first issue plotted, so the question is how long do we want to make this limited series last?

I'll pencil at least a few pages of the first issue.  I think it should be four or five issues long.  We have the first issue, so the second issue should be Sue discovering where she is and the new world around her.  She is supposed to become some sort of warrior queen or something so it is obviously some sort of wartorn world and there are bad guys (and hopefully good guys as well).  The third issue can be a jump in time where she has been there for around a decade or so.  If you figure she starts out as being around 30 or so initially we can then age her to be 40, 50 and then 60 through the subsequent issues.  That'll be neat.

Oh, and we should submit any kind of designs we can for the alien dimension as well.

I can handle up to three pages.

Danny, how do you feel about taking charge and
assigning pages? It doesn't matter much to me
which pages I'm given, though I would appreciate it if
they were in sequence.

On second thought, we can probably start the second issue with Sue having already been in this strange dimension for about a decade.  Then we can have her tell the story of how she came to be there in a flashback sort of sequence.  That way, we can have her aged a good decade and missing her family for a good long while.

edited to add:

If possible, I'd REALLY like to do that first page with Sue in the bath.  :)

Does Reed and the Fantastic Four save her?  If so how will Reed figure out that Sue is trapped in another dimension? 

Will you keep it in JB's era of FF?  It would be fun for it to be a homage to him and the wonderful contributions he put into the book.

If we're going to have them at Avengers' mansion then I guess we should have her in JB's white and blue uniform.  Although in subsequent issues I would think that years in an alternate dimension would involve her wearing something else entirely as her FF uniform would be bound to get torn up or something.

Isn't the FF costume special?  Will there be superhuman characters in this story?

Stephen, isn't JB's modification colors were White and Black?

They're certainly special in the sense that they're
made of unstable molecules. Which means that
they're unlikely to get torn up or something. I recall
that black with white trim was the color scheme then.

I think it's admirable that some of you have
ambitions to take this beyond the single issue
plotted by JB but don't you think you're putting the cart
before the horse? If the FF Challenge was any
indication it takes quite a while to generate a single
issues worth of material when it comes to these
internet minions! Let's focus on the task at hand.

Word of advice: DO NOT TRY TO MAKE THIS A PERIOD PIECE.

Set it "now", in the sense of the fashions, the hairstyles, the technology being what we see today, not what would have been shown twenty years ago.

Don't worry about trying to make it match up with whatever is currently in the FF, either.

Some fashion in the '80's was pretty scary after all.  :)

isn't JB's modification colors were White and Black?

Yes, my mistake.  :)

****

You are right of course.  But it IS kind of fun to imagine the whole story.

What do you think of her hair being like this?  I think of Invisible Woman as being kind of curvy...is that the consensus?

Nice sketch, Stephen.  To make Sue modern check out this website  www.folica.com,  I remember Sue (in the Kirby/Byrne era) always up to date with the modern fashions of the times. 

And I find your symbol of the FF interesting.  Good job.

If its not too late, count me in for a couple of pages. Here's a quick sketch of my idea of page 1.

That's 15 pages spoken for, more or less. More than
half the book. Certainly enough to get the ball
rolling. Shall we start and see what happens from
there?

I suggest we do exclusively the first half of the book
for now so as to keep the project as cohesive as
possible.

Stephen since you've spoken up already about the
splash page how do you feel about opening the
book? I propose the following:

PAGES: (UPDATED)
1,2,3 - Stephen Rockwood
4,5 - Veli Loponen
6,7 - Orlando Teuta
8, 9,10 - F. Ron Miller
11, 12, 13 - James Stewart
14,15 - Jacob Secrest
16,17,18 - Justin Wasson
19 - Steve Gumm
20,21,22 - Darren Taylor
23 - Gordon Somers

What do you all say? Have I missed any one?
Anyone else care to participate?

I got a couple of questions.
Should I wait until  pages 1-5 are done, or should I go ahead and pencil the 2 I was given?

When I scan them, what format and what size should the pages be?

 Edited to fix spelling.

I'm just doing layouts for right now.  I guess we need to determine what she is wearing and what her hair looks like.  I'm thinking of just having her hair be wet (since she would have just gotten out of the bath) or in a pony-tail on my pages so as to not obligate others to stick to what I have drawn.

edited to add:

For her clothes at the beginning part of the story I'm thinking a cute t-shirt with blue jeans or something.  Something casual after having just come out of the bath.

Orlando, I would say take it up with Stephen and
Veli. (Since Stephen has already spoken up, you're
part way there!)

My sequence (page 8) begins with a change of
scene so a wardrobe switch will be quite natural.
James, if you like, I can e-mail you a sketch of what I
had in mind..

Now, for when Sue swings into action in Central
Park I reckon we can go one of two ways: a.) keep
her in her lunch outfit, or: b) have her in FF togs.
--Isn't it understood that Susan has the ability to
reflexively keep her uniform invisible beneath her
outfits if she chooses? If so, we can have her in FF
blues by page 13 and not have to worry about it
again. Thoughts?

As for the hair and uniform style. Please, let's take
JB's ADVICE.

Let's make the finished images 10 inches tall and
6.5 inches wide (16.2cm x 25.2cm) at 72dpi.
