#11. Parks Manager Fennell

November 11, 2009


Fennell is a former military man, a student of Eastern philosophy, and martial arts. And he is a minor Haptikos with the ability to control his body to a very fine degree.

A former bodyguard of the Minneapolis Mayor, he’s now been charged with the caretaking and protection of the Minneapolis City Parks, very strong places of power. He was not aware that Ethan Veridi was a Haptikos. But then again, neither was Ethan.

He answers not to the city government, but to the Haptikos Adelphis, a secret branch of the state government that manages situations that involve the Haptikos.

Parks Manager Fennell is a character from For The Trees, a large and unwieldy collection of index cards, outlines and snippets of dialogue that will one day be a graphic novel. I hope.

Some sketches

    Dude, when is the comic coming out? Will it be all at once as a graphic novel in print or page by page on the web? Inquiring minds that dig your story concept want to know.

    I have to finish writing it first. And that won’t be happening for a while yet. This is but one idea of several that exists only in an amorphous state in a Scrivener file.

    When I get to it, it’ll be published as a full graphic novel, not episodically.

    But the warm reception to the characters here is getting me revved up to work on it again.
