And thank you, Liz Lemon. 😉
And there we go — first episode (or “issue”) of Space Kid! is now complete. Those of you who didn’t wanna read it piecemeal, can come on in and read it now!
Anyhoo, hope you had fun with this one!Read More
Sorry, I couldn’t resist having Holton forget himself and his situation for just a moment, so I could throw in that classic Scooby line — I get my laffs where I can! Plus he even growls a villainous growl for a second — this guy is truly old school.
But of course, Space Kid is an old school hero so he wins in the end, natch!Read More
When I was little I always loved heroes who could figure things out. Batman would assemble and interpret clues to solve crimes, or Adam Strange would draw on his knowledge of physics and chemistry to devise a plan to defeat some beast. A hero who could deduce, and use his brain, won bonus points in my book!
Never mind that, in adult retrospect, you can see that these “deductions” are overly simplistic and circumstantial and would never hold up in a real-life court — if the hero figures this is how it happened, then that’s how it happened! 😀Read More
Boy, when Kyzok self-destructs something, apparently he does not kid around…
Like most of this story, the rendering of that mushroom cloud in particular was heavily influenced by Roy Crane, a cartoonist who could “do more with less” than just about any other artist I can think of. This one’s for you, maestro.Read More
I like to believe that Kyzok is being inspired here by the example of Zoltar, who made sure to supply every base, ship, or giant robot with a self-destruct mechanism and also made sure to trigger that self-destruct mechanism on any slightest provocation. 😀
Also: if you’ve seen any of the 21st-century episodes of Doctor Who, you will be familiar with this type of sing-songy automated voice gently and repeatedly announcing your imminent destruction.Read More
Space Kid unleashes his Inner Badass® … 🙂
Gotta tell ya, I was really looking forward to rendering that second-last panel with all that solid black in it — and I was right, it was a kick to draw! A great cartoonist once said “Don’t be afraid of black” — if I remember who it was, I’ll come back here and edit this post with a proper credit for that quote!Read More
