I think Inkspot is a GREAT premise and could make a really fun and stylish comic.

Although I had other characters in the story, I forgot about adding them in the art (lack of time, I suppose).
See, once Martin christens himself "Inkspot" there are other 'heroes' who want to team up with him:
*Shinestar= a superheroine he created based on his ex-girlfriend; she is believed dead but 'shows up' as the old standby goes that characters don't stay dead for long. And yes, his actual ex does show up, causing a case of mistaken super-heroine identity.
*The Skunk = a former thief who changes over to good as he stands against the mayhem; his nickname is given due to his weaponry of stink bombs and tear gas grenades.
*Blonde Tiger = Wanna be superhero who has a black belt in "everything".
The Villians are:
*The Vile, a gargoyle like creature.
*The Cyborg Zombie Army.
*The mobsters and mad scientists who create such beings.
The idea of Inkspot came when, after writing several spec scripts, I really wanted to do 'a comic book' type script, but something of my own invention, and maybe something a bit humorous.
One thought occured to me: when superheroes and villians fight, clothes rarely get dirty. What if a stain on the 'costume' never came out? Would a costumed villian want to tangle with someone who would 'ruin' thier outfits? Or blind them? What if there were villians who were magically created but could melt by coming into contact with fresh ink? Then when writing the story and script, I chose to add more jokes and gags.

That sounds like a blast, Darren! I hope you find the time to develop it. It sure sounds like a whole lotta fun.

Thanks. The current standing of the story is that it is 'done' as far as a second draft is concerned and like my other specs are registered under the WGA (Writers Guild of America).
After I'm done writing my current spec script, I intend to take one of my specs and re-work it to fit the requirements of a Dark Horse submission. I was leaning towards Inkspot.
DH is the only one I know that accepts material with a release form.
