We’re almost at the middle of the Friday the 13th crossover with Oseiko squaring off against Jason. And while I wanna do more crossover stories with other characters, I feel I wanna explain why I’m doing these crossovers to begin with.
First off, I mean no ill will towards using characters I kinda don’t have permission to use. These crossovers with characters like Jason or Batman or what have you are, at best, glorified fan fiction. As it pertains to Oseiko’s story, they’re considered semi-canon; it’s like the Spawn/Batman crossover where at the end Batman throws a Batarang into Spawn’s face, and for a good part of the series Spawn has his face tied together with a shoelace, explaining that a “man in black” did it to him. It’s kind of like that. For Oseiko it happened, but she and others won’t go into exact detail about it. Cameos (like the cloaked Predator in the Waystation) are also good, but odds are we may see that Predator again down the road in another semi-canon adventure.
Ultimately though, I want to do collaborations with other webcomic creators out there and create canon (or again, semi-canon) adventures with Oseiko teaming up with the MCs of their stories. I can’t help but imagine how a meeting with KrazyKrow’s Spinnerette would go, or meeting up with Van Heist’s Gogo Bomango. Or maybe, somehow (with Jeanne’s powers there’s always a way) teaming up with Discorded Whooves, which would be very interesting to say the least.
Overall, the main focus I’m doing crossovers is that I’m getting practice on how to write these characters Oseiko is interacting with. I want to keep them in-characters as I can get them but at the same time put a little twist into it all; I got ideas brewing when it comes to Jason, for example, and what I have in mind, I hope, will have life long fans go “ahh okay, he’d probably do that.”
Or they may throw a pitchfork or ten into my face, I dunno.
Ultimately I hope I do these characters justice. Because someday I may actually make it big into the comics industry (that’s the plan anyhow) and I wanna get on the ground up when it comes to writing these iconic characters. And what better way to do that than here?
Just wanted to let everyone know what my mindset is. I hope everyone would understand, and if you have any questions, please don’t be shy… let me know! And I will be happy to ask questions.
I want to learn. I want to grow. I want to be better at my craft. But I can’t do it without input from those who are reading my stories.
