Years ago I ran a comic called Whispered Apologies that worked like this: authors would submit art with empty voice bubbles in them, and writers would fill in the words. When people ask why it ended, I say that it was a lot of fun and I’d like to revisit it sometime!
Enter Ryan Estrada!
Ryan Estrada (who I will refer henceforth as Other Ryan) took the concept (with permission, not that he needed it!) and BLEW IT UP and the result is The Whole Story. South Korean artist Nam Dong Yoon had produced a bunch of awesome, visually-striking comics, and wanted something more interesting done with them than just a straight translation into English. Other Ryan invited a bunch of us choose one of the comics to write our OWN stories with, working with the visuals already there!
