I can’t help but notice how much longer the process is taking these days, but look at it. It’s glorious. The shading in that second panel made me feel like Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel. In reality, it was probably more like a homeless person spreading feces on a wall, but it’s progress.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones is pretty neat-o, just in case you’re one of the few people who isn’t watching it, but it’s funny to see all these fantasy tropes being pulled from their own story-lines and mixed together. It’s seriously the best superhero show on tv.
I know, I know. This has been a longtime coming. You may have noticed this comic was out weeks ago on other social media platforms, but this blog has not been getting the love it deserves. I vow to change that. Probably.
I’m gonna keep making comics in my spare time, of which there hasn’t been a lot lately. I love doing it. It occurs to me that wordpress may not be the ideal environment for a project like this, but all my comics already have the URL on them, so fudge it, we’re in it for the long haul.
Guardians of the Galaxy was such a wild ride, due in part to the relative obscurity of the characters. It’s funny to see how the franchise evolved over two movies, especially considering one of the characters has been reduced to cute sidekick status.
Still, even with how toyetic the film is, it’s a lot of fun and kicks it into full banter mode after the first scene.
It’s still kind of a knock-off of the first one, but so was Suicide Squad and this is at least a hundred-million-bajillion times better than that.
The dust has settled, my exams are finished and it’s finally time to make some more comics. It’s interesting trying to take the elements that have made previous webcomics successful and then build on that.
People like Avengers, they like characters they recognize and they like to see them acting silly. Mission accomplished?
Eleven more days until Guardians of the Galaxy TWOOOOO!
Boom! Two comics, two weeks. It’s like I’m getting good at this or something. Or something.
Thanos is the sort of dude who shows up 12 movies into a franchise, but he’s also the sort of dude who gets taken out by a teenage girl and her pet squirrels. I don’t blame him for wanting that infinite power, I DO blame him for not using it creatively.
Keep an eye out for Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, and keep an eye out for Thanos to use the infinity gauntlet to…shoot slightly larger lasers at people. Coming to theatres near you.
A little sketch I did for the Square Enix/Marvel announcement. Exciting stuff guys.
Basically the joke is that in FFXV, Square’s big game right now, you do a lot of pushing a car through the desert. Hopefully, they can bring that same exciting gameplay to the Marvel brand!
Don’t worry, if this joke was a bit too nerdy or esoteric for your tastes, there’s more nerdy and esoteric stuff coming your way! Srsly tho, I’m gonna be writing and cartooning about a wide variety of stuff, but this felt timely and it’s the kind of stuff I’m into.
On a side note….
THINGS I CAN’T DRAW (Officially)
-parts of cars
-people in cars
Can’t wait to see that list grow.
Thanks for being a part of what is, for me, a pretty big moment. Let me know what you think in the comments!
