I have a plan for the next story. It's going to be a bit odd since it's going to be a crossover.

Kaza, Gwenna and friends will be headed to the island of Kokotomo setting of LPHogan's 2014 Halloween Cameo Caper. It's one of those Why Not? kind of deals. Considering some of the participating comics stretched out their stories for over a year, and Reinder even looped his comic Abui's Travels in a very wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey way. I see no problem with Kaza, Gwenna, Nula, and the Commissioner being late to the party.

Plus, I'm using this unique opportunity to play with some different ideas in the comic. It'll be a chance to have the characters interact a bit more with some friends a lot like during the Christmas Special though there won't be any giant robots to ruin the moment.
I just finished page 28 of Up the River and it's queued up on Comic Fury. The last update for the story will be June 4th, for a total of 29 pages.

This was another story that I let get out of hand. I intended it to be a relatively short, as a Halloween theme and conclude by the end of October. Instead I loose steam after 13 pages and end up stopping for three months. When I finally come back to it in February, I end up dragging it out for another four months. This is one of the inherent flaws of my writing on the fly style of story telling.  am rather dependent on inspiration of the moment, and when that drys up I'm up a creek.

Which brings me back to the plans for the next story for Kaza and Gwenna. After this protracted effort, I want to do something a lot smaller. I would like to do something under a dozen pages, preferably less. Right now, all the ideas I have will end up being these massive stories sprawling over several months. I know for certain that story I was teasing earlier is going to be a massive thing already, and while I am planning on doing it, I think it's going to be a bit before I tackle it. I have a few pages worked out for it, but I'm not going to focus exclusively on it right at the moment.

So I need something else to work with in the near term. I do have several pages of a Nula solo story  ready that I can finish up.
Igor's Bar
Igor's is a dingy bar in the city that is the primary watering hole for the various henchmen and minions of the city's supervillains.

That should be the end of Van Horn, or is it?

The Brain and Meredith
Dr. Paul Foster PhD. was a researcher at a secret government particle accelerator in Michigan. In the same accient that created Rockslab, Paul found his brain and cranium growing double in size. He found his intelligence had increased beyond human levels, and he displayed some telekinetic abilities. There was a downside to these abilities, his brain was so radically rewired by his transformation he lost the ability to speak. He's now relies on his assistant Meredith Jones to help communicate with the rest of the world.

Up The River


That story is just about wrapped up. I'm working on page 26 right now, which is part of the story's epilogue. Up the river is probably going to clock in at 27 pages total.It should be wrapped up by the end of May.


Gwenna's Super Team


Despite all of my hyping that up a few months ago, it's been pushed to the back burner for the moment. I didn't have any good stories for it. so it's probably going to simmer for a bit.

Next KMG Story


I have started working on a few pages for the next storyline after Up the River.  Here's a preview with a few characters blacked out to avoid spoilers. It's going to be a bit wilder, with a good does of weirdness and also it will answer a question about the comic I get a lot.

Page two of the commission comic. I'm rather happy with how the third panel came out.

Another commission comic. I'm finding I like the long five panel format more and more.

30 Days 30 Characters 26:Hell Chicken
Centuries ago, a cult of demonologists attempted to bring about the end of the world by summoning a demon. The demon was to take possession of a human child, and would plunge the world into eternal darkness. The cult was stopped, but not before they were able to summon the demon, thankfully, a clever wizard was able to substitute a chicken for the child at the last minute, and the cult's plans were derailed.

Today, the cult still exists, though much reduced. The demon has made the chicken grow to human size, and it still leads it's followers through fear and intimidation.

30 Days 30 Characters 25: Alex Dukes
Alex Dukes is a former Navy SEAL turned private military contractor, which is the polite way of saying mercenary.

The PMC company he runs, Darkpool International, had a lot of controversy around it during the Iraq War. Their involvement in possible war crimes and illegal activity lead him pulling his company out of the Iraq theater, and himself moving out of the United States.

Currently he's been setting up an air force wing for the country of Buranda. They are supposed to be trying to stop the flow of drugs from neighboring countries, but really he's working with one of the generals who's taken over the drug trade, and is using the fleet of planes to move his product and threaten his competition.

30 Days 30 Characters 24: Tom Gordon
Tom Gordon is the business leader behind Ananas Computing and Technology. They are one of the most prolific technology companies in the world. Starting out in personal computers in the 70's and now involved in almost all aspects of internet techonlogy.

30 Days 23: Owlmobile Parachute Pickup Service
Everyone knows about Black Owl and his Owlmobile speeding through town. Every time he has to make an Emergency OwlTurn he deploys a parachute to slow down and turn around, there's a parachute left on the ground. That where Bob and Jim come in.

Bob was a henchman for a couple of the villain in the city. After his last stint in jail, the Black Owl offered him the parachute collecting job, and he jumped at the chance. Later on Jim came aboard after they put an add in the paper.

They are paid full time wages for what is essentially part time work. The Black Owl has them assisting with volunteer work around the city in their downtime, and the guys enjoy the freedom of their work.

30 Days 30 Characters 22: Subway Yeti
Manhattan Island has been home to a population of the large hairy hominids commonly called Sasquatch or Bigfoot since the dawn of time. They exist even today, living in the underground parts of the city and occasionally moving about via the tunnels and subway system.

Of course, everyone knows they are just some urban legend, like alligators in the sewer.So everyone chalks it up to some guy in a costume, or some other explanation, because to say you saw a Yeti on the subway would be crazy. So nobody pays any attention when you see a Yeti on the subway, and that's perfectly fine with them.
Loading...
30 Days 30 Characters 21: Athos
Athos is a 25th century super hero who's arrived in the 21st. While his powers put him in the higher order supers of the time, his costume has made him something of a running joke. Fashions of the future are quite a bit different from today, and he thinks the comments about his masculinty are kind of silly.

Inspired by the rather infamous Mike Grell design for the Legion of Super Heroes Cosmic Boy
