Fusion #16 Cover
Here's the cover to Fusion #16, and it seems some sort of cosmic horror awaits our young heroine!

Beginning with this issue, I've upped the online page size slightly, so hopefully text will read a bit better on higher-res screens. Depending on time, I'll likely update previous issues to this slightly larger size as well (perhaps have back issues updated by the end of summer, unless I get into a groove). Resizing older content will also be an issue of tedium, since I'll have to go back to the source files, flatten them with the copyright watermark, resize, save, and reupload, page by page (over 500 pages).

HBPCyanna Wallpaper
Here's the 1080 wallpaper version of the "High Battle Princess" image.

Last episode, some folks asked if we'd see what Cyanna looked like back in her days as High Battle Princess--so here you go. And, yes, that's Tranalu'or and its two moons in the background.

With Femme, you can see her basic root rings (for ceremonial and non-battle purposes, her root rings are more elaborate than just the Royal Family rings shown here) as well as her crest ring, and her sidelocks done up in a topknot. Her battle membrane is the same one she wears now, but in battle she wore additional armor (and had a longer cape). Her emblem is that of the Royal Family, which was pretty easy to tweak into her Femme Fantastic emblem. (Admiral Awesome's Con'qorian emblem was similarly easy to tweak to his current emblem.) The colors of the flag on the battle standard denote the Royal Family and Cyanna's color in recognition of her status as High Battle Princess. Most likely, after she left the Con'qorian Empire, that blue color was replaced by the color of her brother or sister (whoever took over as High Battle Prince/Princess).

There's also a high-res, vertical version of this image available here for download or print.

High Battle Princess Cyanna
In Episode 2 of Dude in Distress, some folks asked if we'd see what Cyanna looked like back in her days as High Battle Princess--so here you go. And, yes, that's Tranalu'or and its two moons in the background.

With Femme, you can see her basic root rings (for ceremonial and non-battle purposes, her root rings are more elaborate than just the Royal Family rings shown here) as well as her crest ring, and her sidelocks done up in a topknot. Her battle membrane is the same one she wears now, but in battle she wore additional armor (and had a longer cape). Her emblem is that of the Royal Family, which was pretty easy to tweak into her Femme Fantastic emblem. (Admiral Awesome's Con'qorian emblem was similarly easy to tweak to his current emblem.) The colors of the flag on the battle standard denote the Royal Family and Cyanna's color in recognition of her status as High Battle Princess. Most likely, after she left the Con'qorian Empire, that blue color was replaced by the color of her brother or sister (whoever took over as High Battle Prince/Princess).

I've uploaded a high-res version of this image, so you can order prints, if you like. (You can also download the high-res file for free, if you care to print it out yourself.) I'll also be uploading a horizontal 1080 wallpaper version.

Dude in Distress Episode 3 Teaser 1
Episode 2 of Dude in Distress wrapped up a few weeks ago (you can get caught up with the first 2 chapters for free at dudeindistress.thecomicseries.… ). Here's the first teaser for Episode 3 of Dude in Distress: Malicious Machinations of a Mustachioed Menace. Because of the "episode" structure of the series (and my general love of Star Wars), these first episode teasers have been Star Wars inspired in look (see first teaser to Episode 2: First Date at www.deviantart.com/essaybee/ar… ).

Fusion Halloween
Happy Halloween! This pic of Fusion dressed for Halloween was actual posted at the Fusion site (fusion.thecomicseries.com/) last year, but I never uploaded it here. That situation has now been corrected!

I just noticed that I had old (and dead) links to the webcomic Fusion in the descriptions for a number of images. The URLs in the Star Wars parody ad were also outdated. I have corrected all of those links (and updated the parody ad to the latest version). For those wondering what the correct link should be and don't feel like checking in my gallery (or in previous journal entries), it's  fusion.thecomicseries.com/

Since 2009, most of my drawing time has been spent working on Fusion, my original comic series (fusion.thecomicseries.com/). Then, starting in 2015, I launched my second on-going series, Dude in Distress (dudeindistress.thecomicseries.…). Both series can be read for free at those links. As a warning, if you don't like light-hearted (at least initially with this series, although things are getting more serious) superhero comics from a guy who loves bad puns, you might want to steer clear. If you can deal with such stuff, I hope you'll enjoy the series.

As you can tell from the pics I've posted, my art is more cartoony than comic-booky, with simple lines and a pseudo-cel-shading style of coloring. My biggest influences are Bruce Timm and early 90s Disney, with a dash of anime.

My favorite animated shows are pretty much anything DCAU, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Clone Wars (both Genndy Tartakovsky's shorts and the new CG series), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Vision of Escaflowne. Oban Star Racers also deserves mention. There are other shows that I like, but the ones listed really hooked me story-wise and character-wise. As far as animated movies go, I enjoyed pretty much every Disney film from Beauty and the Beast through Hunchback of Notre Dame(with the exception of Pocohontas); The Incredibles was great; and pretty much anything Miyazaki will get my money.

Enough of the boring stuff. I just hope anyone stopping by here is entertained by what they see.

At this point, most likely not, but you can always make one and if I like the idea and have the time, I might get around to it at some point.

I had first seen your web series on the WWOEC forums. Glad you have the pages to it here on DA too.

Thanks for commenting, and glad you enjoy Fusion! There'll be lots more Fusion, as well as the upcoming Dude in Distress (which'll be in different universe from Fusion). If all goes well (i.e., I have the time), 2015 may also see another Fusion-related comic.
