He-Man Ready For Battle

March 30, 2012

About a month back I submitted a piece to Ballad Of after I recieved an email asking for submissions to their latest publication.

It sounded like fun to me so I made some He-man stuff. I was actually suprised at how much material I came up with once I got past the obvious she-man and questionable sexuality jokes. Still, those jokes are the best.

The piece I submitted is a little tamer visually, than this piece and I had intended to include Man at Arms fully geared up and feeling stupid, but I think it works just as well this way.

On the subject of my submission, I have no idea what will become of it other than the email I recieved saying that ‘We will file it and let you know the outcome when we go to print.
Judging from the work recently featured on the blog it doesn’t look like my strip fits in with their vibe. I could be wrong

I think i’ll give it half a month or so then just post it on here regardless.

Farewell Fear Agent – The End of an Era

December 13, 2011

Last month Fear Agent, one of my two favourite ongoing comics of the past few years ended (the other being The Boys).

For those of you that don’t know Fear Agent is an action-sci-fi-horror-pulp-esque space epic written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Tony Moore and Jerome Opena all of whom are badass. It tells the story of Heath Huston a drunkard, alien exterminator/bounty hunter and the last of the fear agents. He’s also from Texas and the luckiest ill fated cowboy ever to exist.

It has pretty much has everything anyone could ever want in life or comics (if you’re me anyhow). Things like time travel, space pirates, gladiatoral combat, zombies, giant robots of the stompy variety, ray guns, interdimensional jaunts, cowboys and plot twists galore. It does them well and nothing seems out of place.

This is my tribute to the ending of an era and a series I enjoyed very, very much. If you have’t read it, do so!
