While Derek Fisher or Tony Brown is drawing up a play, Robin and Brook Lopez are putting pen to paper for a different project.
The two brothers, whose comic-book obsession is well documented, are apparently working on a comic book of their own, though Brook won’t actually give any details, via Fred Kerber of the New York Post:
“Robin and I have actually been doing a series of covers right now with some of our characters. That’s pretty much as specific as I can be. It’s all original character stuff so it wouldn’t make any sense anyway,” said Lopez, who took various writing courses at Stanford. “I don’t know when they would be coming out but we’re absolutely working on it.

“At Stanford, [creative writing] was what I was going to major in. I did playwriting, creative writing, short story, novelization. … Now, it’s not all super hero, not all comic book. It’s various genres. Television, movie, short stories. All original.”
Robin is actually quite the animator, but we’ve seen this story before. The Lopezes have been working on this comic book for far longer than just this season, during which they’re both playing in the same city the first time in their careers. So, get it done, already. We want to read it.
