Comment on this Strip


Since Mike is still in China here is another chibi I threw together. It outlines the good and bad that comes with using chibi characters; it makes it easy for Tim and I to throw a strip together, but it also makes it easy for Tim and I to throw a strip together. In that vein, we have a script for an actual comic joke strip ready; expect to see that in the next couple days. The art won't be anything new, but I can promise some good World War Hulk fun once Mike returns.

I finally have seen all the episodes of the first season of the new Fantastic Four cartoon, and it is just a bunch of LOLs. The dynamic between Thing and Human Torch, and Invisible Woman and Human Torch, and Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman, etc. makes every episode a fun ride. I have also seen all but two Legion of Super-Heroes episodes, and the only thing I keep thinking is how it isn't as much fun as Teen Titans. But I look forward to the next season, in which Comic-Con previews seem to suggest an evil (or darker at least) Superboy. Also I look forward to more Triplicate Girl.

Mike went to China

Mike went on yet another business trip to China for an undisclosed period of time. Although I begged and pleaded with him to draw, he was unable to finish our next comic in time. Instead of going without updates, Scott and I have decided to try out best at producing art. It goes without saying that you might notice a decrease in art quality during the next week or two. My contribution is the chibi strip below:

Yes, I know this is incorrect. Kristen Bell actually showed up at the Fanboys panel and not the Heroes panel, but I figured it would be a good way to tie in the recent announcement that Veronica Mars herself would be joining the Heroes cast. For those that never gave Veronica Mars a chance, I encourage you to pick up a DVD set or two. It might look like YADCRO (Yet Another Dawson's Creek Rip Off), and although the target audience might be female, it's still a damn funny and witty show. It might have a "teen dramedy" outer shell, but it has soft gooey "detective show" center. I mean what else are you going to watch until Heroes comes back?

Plus she is pretty cute :)

The Ultimate Retcon

We're a little late on this comic, and it's not finished yet, Mike's going to touch up a few things here and there, and Scott needs to color. I figured that it would be better to post this nearly finished version for the time being though.

Apparently, Skrulls have been infiltrating the Marvel Universe and anybody could be one. The concept itself is pretty interesting, although it is one ripped off from Deep Space Nine. The problem lies in that it provides the ultimate retcon for anything that Marvel wants. Iron Man was a dick? Nope, it was a Skrull. Cap dead? Nope just a Skrull. Elektra going crazy and killing the Avengers? Guess what? Skrull! It's like what Mutants did for Origin stories. Look people are born with powers! It's the pinnacle of lazy writing. Back in the day, writers had to come up with retcons the hard way by making Magneto Xorn's brother who was pretending to be Xorn pretending to be Magneto. Hell, even DC had Superboy punch time.

Okay, maybe skrulls are a good thing. is a digital parody comic about Comic Book Characters. The original characters are owned by Marvel, DC and other respective copyright owners.
