I’m a physical therapist who followed my dreams of creating a graphic novel… currently in San Diego setting up for Comic Con (booth #835)! Ask me anything about comic book writing, physical therapy or my weird obsession with clean cars!
Edited: Hey guys, I'm back and ready to answer some more questions! Shameless plus: if you feel like checking out the graphic novel(Genesis II), you can download the first chapter for free on the website: https://genesisiicomics.com/
Can't wait to keep chatting with you guys, this has been such an awesome experience so far!
Hey everyone! I’m Allen Ling. I am a physical therapist in the Bay Area but I had a passion for comics that eventually drove me to create my own graphic novel, Genesis 2 (https://genesisiicomics.com/).
I partnered with an amazing artist, Christian Boe, who illustrated most of the story and we got placed in Comic Con, booth 835! I wanted to do this AMA because I’ve been touched by the overwhelming amount of support I’ve received from the various artistic communities such as r/comics, r/graphicnovels, r/sculptures, and r/comiccon just to name a few.
I’m currently setting up at Comic Con this week and I figured while I have the time, I’ll answer questions from interested people. So please, ask away!!!
P.S. I have some of my friends helping me out as they are fielding some questions but I will be answering them from 3 - 6 today and 3 - 5:30 tomorrow.
EDIT: Thank you everybody for the questions, I had so much fun talking with you all! If you're attending SDCC I hope you'll drop by the booth and say hi, and if you want to check out Genesis II the first chapter is available for free download here: https://genesisiicomics.com/
I'd love to do this again some time Reddit, thanks for making it a great experience!
