I Am the Digger

Didja know horror novelist Scott Nicholson now does comics, too? Read on to learn about that … and a chance at winning an Amazon Kindle DX!

My old college roommate used to introduce me this way: “Scott wasn’t born, he just wandered out of a comic book somewhere.”

It took a few years, but it’s finally true. Or maybe it’s the opposite. I wandered from real life into a comic book.

See, I am The Digger (and, yes, yesterday I was sweet, innocent L.C. Glazebrook — but as The Digger would say, “The page turns, and so does the worm.”) The Digger is the narrator and occasional character in my series DIRT, illustrated by Kewber (CHAOS CAMPUS, SLEEPRUNNERS).

Comics were one of my early literary experiences and also one of my first creative endeavors, matching crude crayon drawings with word balloons and four-panel comics where strange characters did very little. I put away comics after puberty, though I never made a conscious decision that comics were “kids’ stuff,” because I saw clearly they had depth and magic.

I started reading comics again shortly before I started writing, mostly because I was dealing baseball cards and began trading them for comics. Then I ended up with thousands of comics I never read. A few years ago, I noticed everybody was making movies out of comic books, and I had the brilliant idea to turn all my screenplays into comics, get the comics purchased by Hollywood, and then — bingo — I sell the scripts. Yes, I often do things the most difficult way imaginable.

To warm up, I figured tackling short stories would be easy and also give me a chance to test drive some artists. I found Kewber on ComicSpace and we clicked instantly. We put together the first issue with an upside-down cover (on purpose), and planned a four-issue series. After 72 pages, I realized that it is very hard to sell comics and I’d have to enter an entirely new world, so I promptly started organizing comic book conventions. Remember what I said about doing things the hard way?

At any rate, The Digger is a cool old gravedigger storyteller (developed from photographs of me I sent Kewber) and he finds this book (called DIRT, of course) and shares the stories in it. He’s not a horror punster like the Cryptkeeper or Cain or any of those hokey ’70s hosts. Between the horror anthology shows and FANGORIA, I am quite sure no horror pun remains unearthed.

Since all the stories were adapted from existing work, it was a chance to explore a new medium and a new style of writing. I can’t draw my way out of a paper bag, so I am very fortunate to have found Kewber, and reviewers say our styles go together. We did a zombie story, a girl and her dead best friend, some poignant supernatural tales, a funny dark fantasy, a haunted car tale. And more, adding sketches, a story and a script as bonuses in the trade paperback version. Digital issues of the comics (99 cents each), as well as the signed trade paperback ($6.95) are available from the Haunted Computer.

I hope to return to this series and finish the four-issue arc, because the original goal was to have The Digger (that’s me) become a more active part of the story line and bring in the Second Chance angel and have them square off for a final showdown. In the meantime, Kewber and I have finished the first issue of THE GORGE, colored by his wife, Schimerys (artists in Brazil like to go by only one name). We’re hoping to sell that through an agent and finish a four-to-six issue adaptation of my novel THEY HUNGER.

The best thing about comics is they stay fresh. Every time I flip through the book, I see some little detail Kewber added, or a visual effect that I missed. It’s a totally different experience, and very satisfying.

Kewber also illustrates DIRT. The comic series. Dig it. —Scott Nicholson

I knew that comics, or cartoons, were not just for kids while watching Pop-eye with my kids. There were so many things that he said under his breath that I never heard when I was a kid! I had comic-crazed friends growing up but I was the sort who had to always be outside throwing something or breaking windows (well over 100 to my credit, I am sure, inadvertently and always a complete surprise – really). I will get some of your comics, but I will have to wait until they ship that DX to me so I can enjoy them as I should. I am sure it would be a challenge on my first generation Kindle to render any of the artwork. I usually use my Kindle for the PC to enjoy graphic things, but my computer is NOT portable. It’s rather a first generation sort of thing itself. It is at least 5 years old and still has many components carved in rock. My kids make fun of me! “It’s so slow.” they tell me. Of course I remember the advent of electronic typewriters and thought THAT was the epitome of modern civilization. I hope I will be able to archive your comic(s) that I get from your website, somehow, so I can put it on that DX! I love the feature offered by Amazon where they keep all your purchases on a mainframe archive (or some sort of thing, somewhere).
Looking forward to the challenge,
Jeff White whitejw@ameritech.net

Scott!

It was great meeting you at Hypericon once upon a time. Enjoyed the music as well.

I’ve read The Red Church and really enjoyed it and purchased all of your other novels from Pinnacle.

When I was a kid, I would buy the discarded comics at the drugstore: 3 for 25 cents and read the hell out of those babies…..first thing that taught me how to read or keep reading or enjoy reading.

Take care,
Troy

Cliff, They Hunger seemed a lifetime ago but I guess it’s only been three years.

Jeff, the iPad is awesome for comics and the DX is supposed to be (haven’t seen one yet), but the digital comics market is not exploding like many figured it would. And there’s no easy way to format them for Kindle yet, either.

Troy, yes, I remember, vaguely. That was my first public venture in years (after a personal bottoming out) so I was in a bit of a daze that whole time! Bettah now!

“Yesterday I was sweet, innocent L.C. Glazebrook”. Okay, Scott, you may be sweet sometimes (the Left Handed Puppeteer would know more about that) but “innocent” – come on, who are you kidding??
I made my own comics as a kid as well and every second Wednesday, my father would bring the newest one home from the city. There wasn’t that much of a choice then. It was the Disney characters and a few more. I loved them.

It’s kind of funny how I never read many comics as a kid–thanks to rurality and poverty–and yet now in adulthood I’ve managed to become quite enamored by them. I’m currently reading a Dark Horse comic based on Joss Whedon’s Serenity franchise. I loved Firefly when it was on for that lone season.

Comic books! Not just to write them but to star in one — man, that is way cool.

I grew up with comic books. I began collecting them in the fifth grade and at the time I really wanted to draw them. Of course I have no talent for drawing so I turned my attention to writing them. As I got older I put it off and set it aside. I’ve left comics and gone back several times. Now I mostly read them when they come out in graphic novel collections.

Scott McCloud talked a lot about comics on the Internet in Reinventing Comics. It’s a shame his vision hasn’t come about yet but I have hope.

In the meantime I content myself with Freakangels. Anyone else know a good online comic book?

Thanks for the chance to win,

I am apparently the very first (and only?) one to have ordered the “DIRT” trade paperback and I do believe I am also the first one to use “Dig it” as a tag line for “Dirt.”

But with you being Digger…AND “sweet, innocent” L.C. Glazebrook …AND the “Left Handed Puppeteer” (and, for goodness sake, I wish you would PLEASE learn to keep your “puppet” in your PANTS when other people are around. NO ONE wants to see you make it “perform”! EEEW!) …AND Scott Nicholson (actor, writer, goat lover), I do think it’s time you faced up to the fact that you need serious HELP! Can you say “Sybil”??? Yikes!

It’s true, Scott. Face the facts. You have multiple personality disorder (one of the MANY disorders you have). Not only do you have the celebrated “personalities” I just mentioned, but there are several other “regular Joes” personalities as well. Seriously! I mean, more than half of these comments are made by you and your many splintered alter egos. You’ve heard of the “Three Faces of Eve”…but is any one ready for the “137 Faces of Scott”??? (137 !?! Well, i guess it’s better than being TWO FACED!)

Seek professional help NOW!

CHEERS!

What next? Are you my uncle too?

I know many people would pay to become a zombie character in one of your comic books, but I would pay NOT to. Just thinking your zombies could provide a whole new avenue of revenue. Also, I would pay NOT to be sent teeth. Maybe, it’s just me. varbonoff22 at cox dot net

I was a late comer to comics. I was 40-ish when I got hooked. It was Stephen King’s comic of The Dark Tower series that pulled me into a store. Then I got the 8th season of Buffy (loved that show) and I started picking others and then I realized I can’t afford to be addicted to comic books!! Those things add up each month for such a quick pleasure read. So I quit cold turkey.

Comic books got me through a lot when I was younger. Anytime my family went on a long trip, my mom would take me down and me buy a bunch of comics to read on the road. While I want to believe that it was done totally out of love, I’m sure part of it had to do with keeping me quiet and out of the way (I had three other brothers).

The “Dirt” comics are great and I can’t wait for “The Gorge.”

I have a question pertaining to Monsters comments: Which of your personalities likes the goats?

Scott, too!

Pretty cool, Scott. I wish I had kept drawing, ’cause I’m too introverted to find a great artist to partner with.

Scott, are you taking medicine to control these multiple personalities or are you some uber-super-hero with more than one secret identity?

When I was a young girl, I used to read the Archie comics and Vampirella. Now, I love me some graphic novels, like Watchmen and From Hell. You are quite the diverse writer. First I find out about the YA books and now comics! Impressive!

Thanks for reading them, Joyce!

@Jess, I won’t break you up too badly–you can buy ALL my e-books for the price of one hardcover. And even if you buy all my paper books, it’s better than a trip to the doctor!

@Stefanie, actually I was a painter in college–art was my first major. And I plan to pick it up again in my “retirement years”…but I will never be any good at it.

I like the look of this. Been awhile since I’ve read some comics but I’ll look around for this one.

I really thought I had already been here but it looks like I haven’t.

I was never a comic book reader but know tons of people that were and still are.

Comics is the greatest medium in the world–and this is coming from someone who makes his living writing and publishing novels. Comics were what got me writing in the first place, me writing scripts for guys in my art class.

Comics can do things no other medium can. They can paint pictures, be read at any pace, and can carry more layers and depth than any book or film.

I’ll have to check out your comics work at some point, Scott.

Peace.

My Internet went down for a few days. I thought it was too late for me to comment but I see others pasted today also!

Anyway, Scott. Comics? What don’t you do?

The Digger seems like one I could come to like… growing up though I must admit that I loved that horror punster the Cryptkeeper

Well I think writing comics is just the natural next step after horror novels right Scott? or should I say The Digger? Thanks for a fun post.
