Abstract:
Printed is a script for a short graphic novel about what would happen if a college student 3-D printed a superhero costume. The book mixes comedy and drama, tackling issues around sexual assault and mental illness while also cracking jokes. The world of Printed is somewhat grounded in reality and the personal experiences of the author. Chris Clines is a nerdy college student who plays Dungeons and Dragons and has always dreamed of being a hero. When the opportunity arrives, Chris jumps into action. As “The Printed Man,” he becomes the vigilante crime-fighter he always hoped to be. However, as the threats he faces become more serious – and as his relationships become more strained – Chris must question who he’s really trying to help: his friends or himself. Presented is the annotated script, which is written as one-half of a collaborative effort with an artist and is not a complete comic. Additionally, materials including reference pictures, author layouts, some rough sketches, a playlist and a creative statement are included.
