Messina On Creating Trek Comics

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

A veteran of several Star Trek comics, artist David Messina explains the process of how to create a Trek comic.

As reported by Trekzone Network, Messina begins with lots of drawings, to better understand what he needs to do to draw a specific character. “My process is particular because my first concern is to handle the character’s likeness without becoming addicted to the pictures,” he explained. “Because Star Trek is such a huge universe, each book has a different main character. I usually start with a lot of sketches to bring something to the character, understand how it must be drawn. Then I start with the rough pencil of all the pages. I always think that a good comic book should be ready without balloons, without the caption.”
