Fun with Superheroes

I don't buy a lot of superhero comics.

There's a cycle to superhero stories I just don't enjoy. When I realised I would never receive a proper resolution from the comics, I gave me my own, and just stopped buying them.

Plus, it's all dark and grim and gritty, and they're all largely just rambling from one conflict to the next, without ever being about anything. So I thought I'd give it a go myself. Create a superhero title with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

What's it about? Well, I don't want to say too much about it; I do like my surprises. ;o) But I thought I'd share my character designs inspired by the recent Guardians of the Globe teasers I've been enjoying, while I finish colouring up those first 8 pages.

But where's the super hero you say? All in good time.

Ok, less mystery, more answers! When where how... I mean you can always just email me pages as you do them... but assuming you want others to see this, how will you be packaging it or making it available, and when do we start seeing it.

Those teasers are amazing. You had me at... well anything you decide to do you've got my interest

Oops. Currently, I'm finishing the colours on an 8 page submission to Zuda, so I guess look for it an a competition between now and anywhere up to (at the extreme end of things) 6 months. :o)

I guess I could shop it elsewhere, but it's 3:4 format, which limits my choices. I did do this one with Zuda in mind though.
