A double page feature today. This could almost be the start of a new chapter killing spree if I didn't start it early.
I wasn't sure if I should show Saturno tear up in the last panel. I was thinking that the situation leaving a safe home with people that cared for three years to the dangerous unknown...that would be emotionally overwhelming enough for some tears. I don't mean for him to be a baby or anything. It's not like he's doing it in front of others. Does the writing make me sound like an obvious woman writer? Do male comic artists/writers ever have a main male character cry?
Oh yeah Intervention in Rockville DC area is Aug. 23 through 25th. http://interventioncon.com/

I'd say that most male comic writer wouldn't make the main male character cry, but I don't think that's a good reason to never make a character cry. Making characters show strong emotions isn't bad writing. If the character and situation fits, then I'd say it's ok.
I finally caught up after 2 days of reading really nice comic and yeah I notice that but I do make mine cry, only if it fits, like emotional things fuse having a character that doesn't cry is like a brick and that is just nothing if you get what I'm saying
I don't think gender is an actual issue in this case.
Men cry. I've seen my own father, grandfather, uncle, and many of my guy friends cry. Guys need hugs just as much as girls do. Some are more open about it than others. Sometimes you just can't control it.
Besides. For me, a character doesn't seem very easy to relate with until I see them at their worst.
