Rejected Ideas - Unrejected

It's been about oh...forever, but we've finally updated with a comic that doesn't have reused art and isn't a Chibi comic. Sorry it took so long, but Mike was out of the country and didn't have photoshop with him.

In our comic development wiki we have a section entitled "rejected strips," which basically contains any strip that Mike is unwilling to draw due to moral issues, usually followed up with comments such as "You people are horrible - Mike". We thought it would be fun to draw these strips as if they were being brought to a Marvel/DC editor who would of course promptly reject them. Though in reality, a cover like this would actually see the light of day. This strip took a while to make, cause it's actually a series of three strips that we were planning to publish in one week, and I was waiting for them all to be completed. In reality, Mike refused to draw a cover with a pregnant Speedy and Dr. Light getting married, so our series has been reduced to a double feature. Look for the next cover in a few days.

As amusing as the concept of Psylocke vs. Omega red is, I would like to acknowledge that this pairing actually occurred fairly early in the Jim Lee run on X-Men. I find it horribly amusing that somehow Psylocke, who is British woman with a fairly conservative costume, was transformed into a buxom Asian vixen, and given a costume that amounts to a bathing suit. Granted the costume is rather conservative for present day comics, but in a pre-Image world it was quite slutty. Then conveniently Marvel introduces Omega Red soon after who's gimmick is that he has two tentacles. Coincidence? I think not.

Scott originally complained that the drawing didn't evoke enough of a Hentai feel. If that is the case, it's cause Mike and I were unwilling to google image search for reference material. I leave any comparisons to be made as an exercise to the reader. is a digital parody comic about Comic Book Characters.
