Chapter cover art samples for Supertown

with one comment

Yes, the forthcoming Supertown is going to be a black, white, and gray sort of comic, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for color. Each chapter (story arc, in essence) will be getting its own cover art, which will be used in the storyline guide section of the website. Here’s the first two for “Chapter One: Bugs in the War Room” and “Chapter Two: No Trouble Like Zoo Trouble,” respectively:

Feel free to start spreading some hype around. I won’t mind one bit.

In a world of doubt and fear
I wake at night and reach to find you near
Lost in a dream, you caught me as I fell
I want more than just a dream to tell

Supertown header sketch

with one comment

I hope y’all don’t get tired of me talking about Supertown. It’s basically a project that’s been living in my head for at least a year or so and I’m super excited about it becoming an existence, and well…I just have to emote (for once). Eee. So here’s a sketch of what I’m hoping the comic’s header will look like:

My inspiration for this came from the Batman: Black and White covers, #4 to be specific. You should click that. They are beyond awesome. Hopefully I don’t get sued.

Cause I am due for a miracle
I’m waiting for a sign
I’ll stare straight into the sun
And I won’t close my eyes
Until I understand or go blind

Supertown news and some found sad comics

with one comment

I’ve recently been pondering about what to do with Supertown since my application to The Rampage Network was turned down. None of the free webcomic hosts really called out to me and I whined a bit online, expecting…well, expecting not much really. Super surprise, though, as LJ reader pixelfish is going to be helping me out with getting Supertown up and running (much thanks in advance to her, and I’m sure there’ll be more thanks to come). So get your insulin shots done with now because the sweet and super adorable comic is most definitely now forthcoming…

Also, while cleaning up some paperwork in my apartment, I stumbled upon sketches of Sad Comics #71, #72, and #73, all three of which I had earlier assumed to be lost. Anyways, enjoy what could have been:

If I told you what it takes
To reach the highest high
You’d laugh and say “nothing’s that simple”
But you’ve been told many times before

Sneak peek at the very first Supertown comic

with 4 comments

Here’s a sneak peek at the very first Supertown comic:

001-Supertown640

This is the beginning of the first chapter called “Bugs in the War Room,” wherein Will and Kyle settle into their new digs and attempt to take out their very first supervillain. Spoiler alert: it’s not Eye-Boy.

The reason I’m posting this here is that I’m applying for a comic site at The Rampage Network, and they require a sample strip as part of the application process (hi, Rampagers!). So wish me luck, everybody, because it’d be a fun place to host Supertown and would feel much more like a comic website than other providers do…and it’d save me a lot of hassle as I know nothing when it comes to formatting webpages. ::crosses fingers::

I’m gonna take some time
To sift through this conflicted time
And figure out why I can’t sleep

Willpower from Supertown Emotes Like Crazy

with 4 comments

Expressions-Willpower

That’s William, a.k.a Willpower. He’s quite a character (pun intended).

One of the interesting–and challenging–aspects to my forthcoming webcomic Supertown is that I’m drawing characters without noses, ears, arms, and legs. Older women will be retaining their boobs to please the pervs. That means, when it comes to emotion and such, I have eyes, eyebrows, and a mouth to work with, as well as the occasion action line or body twist. Challenging, sure, but it’s amazing actually at how much can be accomplished in a matter of a few lines.

Either way, I’m really looking forward to getting this online. Will keep y’all posted.

Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations I break down
