Good day, fellow comics fans! This past week we've been going over how I have goals for current projects, but now I'm switching it up a bit. I want to write about the future.
When the Exorcist one shot ends, it will be replaced by another one shot, this time for another character spawning from Warlord, The Fabulous Rocker.
Yolanda Gutierrez (known to her family and friends as 'Dita) is one of the most fascinating characters to write. She's the youngest of the main cast and the least experienced in being a hero. Still in high school, Exorcist took her under his wing to train her.
There still isn't much of her backstory available (its slowly being discovered in the pages of Warlord), but this one shot will expand on her character both as 'Dita and as Rocker.
Aside from Exorcist, she is perhaps the most popular of the secondary heroes of the cast. Strong willed, stubborn, energetic, honest, open to learning, she has earned a lot of respect from the other characters and the readers, as well.
Especially when she starts training with Exorcist. She has shown tremendous growth and everybody has been watching that growth for her, and that to me as a writer is truly exciting, she is such an exciting character to write because she is still learning and contrary to someone like Fred for example, she revels in the idea of becoming a hero because in her eyes she wants to make her parents proud.
