Colleen Doran shares artwork from Technique, a mini-series from the now defunct Milestone Media she drew that ended up being shelved:
Personally, I never had a problem with the publishers. Honestly. And in the case of the unpublished Technique miniseries for Milestone, I have no reason to suck up and hide wicked backstage facts in the matter because Milestone doesn’t exist anymore. I’m not getting any brownie points being nice to people about this, because there’s nothing for me to gain out of it. Milestone not only treated me with nothing but courtesy and respect, but when the series got axed in progress, they also paid me a very fair kill fee for which I was most appreciative.
The writer was the same person who had written the killed-in-action Fallen Angels mini-series for Marvel for which I did 100 pages of art (unpublished), who self published the killed-in-action Nestrobber series for which I did some interior and cover art (and I wonder what happened to the original art), and since Technique was the third project in a row I worked on with the writer where writer/editor/publisher disputes/deadlines/god-knows-what difficulties came up, I decided to move on and find other writers to work with. Have a nice life and all that, but we were 0 for 3 here. Karma, bad luck, personality conflict, I do not care. Whatever it was, it wasn’t working for me.
Jo Duffy, in case you’re wondering, was the writer. An upcoming issue of Back Issue magazine will tell the “untold story” of what happened to the second Fallen Angels mini-series.
