Hey-ho, wasn't sure where to post this so I thought here.
Right now I'm struggling with an idea. I was planning to do it as a more ambitious manga, but I'm not sure if my art skills will have reached the desired art skills within one year (As that's the time I'm hoping to have finished the Story of Mizuka), it's aimed to be within 9 months really, but yeah, I did post this somewhere else, but I'm hoping for more versatile advice. There's few forums I go on that supports both literature and comics/manga. Plus the place has Morpheus, Birdofterror and Bloodlord, as well as others (Do you honestly want me to make a list), all of which are good for go-to-advice.
So what is it that I'm needing help on. Well I've already got a lot down... a lot-a lot. So I'll just summarize it until I know where to more appropriately put this and see if anyone is willing to help me out.
In this fictional world, a kingdom's military force has greatly depleted after a disastrous military expedition. In order to recover they need more people to wield the godlike power (Become Naruto and Bleach sort of people), however there are very few men left who are willing to pay the price or go through the very high risks involved. So after been persuaded by one of the figureheads, they agree to let women take up arms to gain access to this power. What's the big deal. The kingdom is extremely sexiest to an Ancient Athenian point. They belief women are stupid, weak and are yet dangerous. Why are they dangerous, Ancient Athenians believed women were that stupid, that their stupid ideas were that dangerous. They also couldn't understand the hormones they struggled with as teenagers and the fact they slit themselves (Emos have been around a very long time) made them believe they were very self-destructive).
So yes as for the story itself, it revolves around two of these women. One is your old fashion rebellious character, who believes genders should be equal, but comes out more like that women are superior. The other is your usual cool-headed calm character and desires vengeance for her husband dying in the war. She is content with her society. Because of this, the rebellious character wants to use this opportunity to aggressively change society, while the other just wants to get on with her training to avenge. This causes friction throughout the story.
So what am I needing help with? Well I don't know which medium to do this in, should I do this as comic? I want to have good enough skills that I want to have the gal to have it up on the front page like Bleedman and Skull-boy-666 or something like that. Or should I do it as a novel? I'm not sure how to write this, I need the perspectives to change frequently, which is it ethical to do that? I know George R.R Martin does it, but this frequent? Or should I do it as a screenplay? I there's not many people I can go to for help, I'm just as inexperienced there and screenplays are just as length constraint as novels and comics, which is what I've never been into them as much.
Besides that, this is really huge and opinionitive. I want to be telling a story that I don't want to get caught up telling a message. If you've also ever read any of my work, you might know that nearly all of it (Especially my earliest work) is quite feminist, as my female characters are very 2D and would do more well in the 70s era or earlier. Also just to generally see if anyone thinks this is actually a worth while idea. I think people are thinking it already is, but again wanted to hear from people around here as you're all pretty good ideas yerselves.
