Today we begin another new experiment at Erotic Mad Science. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wrote two whole screenplays. For the first of these, Auto-Icon I commissioned Erosarts to do a long string of quasi-storyboards which I compiled with the screenplay into what I called a pictureplay book. With the second I am attempting something that is in one way more standard for this site — the screenplay is being adapted into a graphic novel — but in another way experimental, in that I am delegating the adaptation to Erosarts rather than writing my own script. This delegation should provide a new and I hope refreshing approach to the readers, while freeing up some time and energy as I develop a podcast.
For those of you curious about the underlying text, I am also publishing the screenplay. The “typewriter” icon below each page links to a version of the screenplay. (Don’t read if you don’t want spoilers.)
So without further ado, let us get on with the next story.
