What’s going on in my brain: Halloween edition
So I’ve been getting notes together for an all-new comic over the past few months!
I decided that the few ideas I kept having were good enough to pursue, so I began making notes on the story and the characters. Here’s the skinny:
Imagine, if you will, the day the aliens/demons/ant overlords arrive and begin tearing the place up.
Now imagine there are no supergroups like the Avengers or the Justice League to take ’em down.
Why are there no superheroes? Because about twenty years ago, a bunch of supervillains got together and took them out.
So now, on the day the invasion happens and all Hell breaks loose, who ya gonna call?
A bunch of middle-aged supervillains who haven’t done anything in about fifteen years and don’t exactly play well together.
First up is LumberJacques, a French Canadian strongman and master of Savate. LumberJacques was once a legendary villain who sold his amazing martial arts skills (and love of maple syrup) to the highest bidder for whatever dirty deed needing doing.
Now, this aging Canuck just wants to be left alone to kick over trees and karate-chop bears in the face in peace.
Next up is the Green Wiffle. He’s pretty much the worst idea I’ve ever had, committed to paper.
Imagine that if, when Abin Sur crash landed on Earth, his ring was intercepted by Carrot Top instead of Hal Jordan.Yeah.
Finally, we have SpamBot. SpamBot is… well, a SpamBot that becomes sentient, downloads itself into a robot body, and turns to a life of crime. The catch is, it can only communicate via spammy-sounding speech.
There are a few more to the cast, such as a planet-headed stand-up comedian, a master of puns who can only find work making up pun-related adult film titles, and a guy who is a living callus.
Anyway, watch this space for more character designs coming soon!
