That's what I'll do from now on until this story is finished...and then for the second and third stories I'll post a few pages, then ruff pencils then inked panels...just like I'm doing with Miserable.
Got to keep the Blog fed...it's a monster.

A tractor beam effect also needs to added.
Overrall...it all needs to be lightened up, but as a start...not too bad.
The strip should look fantastic after everything is complete.

He asked me if I could whip one up real quick for his wife's podcast.
Quite like a lot of it. Hopefully the stuff I'm not too happy about...I can 'fix' at the inking stage.

I really like the 'Where are they now?' strip. It was suggested by Peter Rios of the ComicGeekSpeak podcast.
The unfinished strip was written by Richard McAuliffe. Hopefully it will get completed at some stage. Funny script too.
So, that's it...until Pixelstrips.com gets it's revamp, that's all the 'Heroes Exposed' strips that will appear for now.
Hopefully Kevin can pull things together and get the ball rolling again.
This batch includes my favorite 'Heroes Exposed' strip and my two lest favorites.
Absolutely love Rich's 'Killing Joke' parody script...loved referencing and drawing it too.
The other two strips look really, really unpolished...from the art to the colors and letters...especially the 'SuperSew' one. I was expecting a lot more to be done with that strip.

And I'm going to have to change panels 7 and 8. Doesn't look like an airbag is going off inside the car...or does it? Probably not.

Script by Richard McAuliffe, of course!

The idea was simple...Brendan wanted the same as the Halloween/Bible cover but Xmassy.
This is just the basic colors etc before I go in and add shade and other xmassy things. This will be my first ever printed/published Christmas card.

So, here's the explanation. I decided to submit a comic strip to Zuda. Zuda is owned by Warner Bros. (who, in turn own DC comics). I went to their website....downloaded the necessary info...and decided, what the heck, I'll give it a try.
I've already got the 8 screens pencilled, inked and lettered...I just have to color them.
And that, folks, is why I've been slow to post on the blog.
I've got tons of work to catch up on when the Zuda strip is complete.
I got the Caretakers Uncannily Nasty Tales to finish, a Mrs. Browns Boys Halloween pic (need to work on that this week), Heroes Exposed and a few Thugs pages! Also, got to follow up on the kids comic, 'Hiccup!'
And maybe I'll do a few paid commissions!
No rest for the wicked.

Here's a quick snippet of some test animation I did with a few 'friends' a good few years ago.
The designs are by Robert Islas (hence the co-creator credit...though it should just be a design credit.) but are actually based on my drawings. Robert is an incredible designer.
I'm currently revamping 'Flint' and going back to basics.
As soon as I get the whole cover done...I'll post it.

heres an image I did for a comic book I created back in the late 80's....'MAINSTREAM'.
This was the cover for Issue 2. I was 19 when I drew it. Not bad...but I think I took the idea from an old DC book...can't remember!
When I'm stuck for something to post...I'll put up my old garbage. My old garbage is quite interesting when you comapre it to my new garbage.
The character in the vampire choke-hold is 'Vex'. Vex storylines dealt with the supernatural and were very X-Files before the X-Files....If you know what I mean.

I’ve been away for a while, two weeks to be exact, so I haven’t posted anything in that time. Now that I’m back, I’ll be posting regularly.
Anyhow, my trip back to my home country, Ireland….went really well, personal-wise and business-wise. Hopefully I’ll be able to reveal more details business-wise over the coming few months.
Anyhow…When I was back ‘home’ I picked up tons of swag…what you see in the pictures is a small representation of what I brought back to the US.
I brought over around 7 volumes of the Hardcover faithful reprints of the Original ‘Dan Dare’ strips.
A good few Hardback volumes of ‘Viz Comic’ …Hilarious non-pc stuff.
A few copies of the ‘Eagle’ comic from the 80’s relaunch. Yep…you can see the first issue in the pictures…it came with a free space spinner!
A few copies of some real old school war comics…'Battle.'
A few copies of one of my favorite IPC titles ‘Scream!’…you can see the first issue in the pic and that came with plastic ‘Fangs’.
Bought a couple of the 2000ad fanzine ‘Zarjaz’ (and other various 2000ad stuff) and the British comic fanzine ‘Crikey!’.
Got some ‘Dandy’ and ‘Beano’ stuff including a hardback reprint of the original 1939 Dandy Annual.
And as you can see…I gots me some cool Doctor Who toys! I love the good Doctor. I got a ‘Sonic Screwdriver’, a remote controlled ‘K-9’…two remote controlled Daleks…a Cyberman and the good Doctor himself!
And I got the missus…A ‘Jack Skellington with interchangeable heads’…she loves that movie!
Not a bad haul…I still got tons of stuff up in attic of my folks house. Maybe next time I’ll manage to bring most of it over to the US.

This is a drawing I did for the CGS forum. It's a caricature of Bryan Chrisman...aka Pants.
The guys on the CGS Podcast are always using 'Pants' as the butt of their jokes. What better way to counteract that by giving 'Pants' his own fan club.
Go Pants, go!

Final colors on this one. I plan on coloring the other two What If's as well and I'll only post them when the colors are final.
Had a lot of fun drawing and coloring this.
Rich's scripts are so funny and offensive at the same time.
