You mean the playing card? The villain from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland“? Any one of a dozen songs, poems, and TV shows?
Nope. This “Queen of Hearts” is an original comic book by Jeff Donovan Wade. (Never heard of him either!) And when I say “original”, I mean it doesn’t exist yet, and furthermore Jeff Donovan Wade has never created a comic in his life.
(Updated June 4th, 2013)
The creator of this project has contacted me to complain that, while discussing his professional credentials, I didn’t include his X-Men fanfic.
He seems to believe that if you know about this fanfic, which he created by copy/pasting art together, then you would take him seriously as an artist.
So, you can read the comic if you dare, and see if it improves your opinion of Jeff Donovan Wade as an artist.
Mr. Wade is begging for $2,200 so he can hire someone to pencil, ink, and color (Oh, didn’t I mention? This guy is just the writer.) a comic book, without giving us so much as a sample page!
Sounds risky, doesn’t it?
It must be! This project has the longest “Risks and Challenges” section I’ve ever seen. Not only that, it’s the most emo “Risks and Challenges” section I’ve ever seen!
Are you kidding? Then what the hell are you wasting our time for?
(Also, “money targeted goal”? Are you sure you’re a writer?)
Four if you count watching TV!
Really? Sucks to be you! I learned it the easy way. By reading literally any book, magazine, or blog about being a writer or an artist. They always, always say to keep your day job because it takes a long time to make money on writing or art.
No shit! WELCOME TO PLANET EARTH!
… and he goes on like this, for paragraphs and paragraphs of angry, ranting, embarrasing text. (Remember : This guy’s a writer!)
Finally he ends by telling us his SECRET PLAN!
Yea, buddy. You’re a genius. I hear Hollywood agents are desperate to buy the movie rights to indie comics that haven’t even penciled their first page.
Not looking good
Here’s an exerpt from his first “update” to the project :
“I was hoping that this project would boost my morale, but it is actually having the opposite affect. Therefore, since no one seems to believe in me or my abilities, despite all that I have done: comic book, scripts, animation, edited videos and music […] it will fail.”
Oh, Why must life torture this artistic soul so? Has he not proven his worth with his Loony Tunes fanfic scripts? Has he not shown himself to be worthy by using GoAnimate.com to make Star Trek animations from the built-in clipart? And who can say he has not made a comic? Has he not copy-pasted some X-men art and put his own words in the text bubbles?
WHY MUST KICKSTARTER TORMENT THIS ARTIST?!?
He’s not giving up!
That’s right! He’s going to get page one drawn (Remember, he has to hire an artist) then he’s going to Kickstart page two!
Haha! I suppose if that succeeds he’ll Kickstart page three?
(What if it fails? Will he Kickstart things a panel-at-a-time? A word-at-a-time?)
