Chapter One: Origins of an Unlikely Llama...

Far, far away, on a planet, many extra-lite years from here, a young llama like creature gruesomely murdered his parents in a dark alleyway, one night after a visit to the theatre. Opera just wasn’t his thing. For this heinous crime, he was forever banished to the butthole of the universe, and forced to slum it on a backwater blue planet called Earth. Also his home planet blew up, and everyone died.

Shortly upon arriving on Earth he was bitten by a radioactive gibbon, and from that day forth he would be known far and wide, as the llama with a bad rash on his left leg. While being treated for his injury, he was accidentally given a bad batch of green blood belonging to a shirtless roid-raging physicist. Disgusted with the service he was getting, the llama stormed out, but before he could even make it past the car park, a passing truck deliberately dumped a vat of toxic waste all over him, as a joke. When he finally awoke and the glowing eventually subsided, he was given a clean bill of health, of which he had 23 minutes to pay. Faced with crippling debt and an ever looming deadline, the young llama took to the streets and embraced a life of crime.

Murder, larceny, armed robbery, horse rustling, the llama read about them all, but nothing really appealed to him. In the end he decided to go with what he knew. Jaywalking. And he was really good at it. 11th Street, Madison Ave, Rodeo Drive, he crossed them all. Unfortunately, jaywalking wasn’t one of those crimes that proved lucrative, so he retired from crime and moved into tabloid journalism. More of a lateral move, really.

But with this new job came a sense of purpose and meaning. He was finally making a difference. No more would the private lives of famous people go unreported. Nor would sweet, gullible housewives suffer the indignity of leaving a grocery store without first learning about the latest sighting of ghost Asian Elvis. When that crack pot, gap-toothed hillbilly lost 3 weeks memory and all feeling in his left testicle, claiming alien abduction, he was there.  When that sextuplet 3 headed horse-cow was born to a pair of conjoined mixed gender sheep, he was there. And when that narcissistic, socialite, insta-fame queen went to the gym without makeup, he was there. Snapping pics and taking names. Because he had a hidden camera, and he wasn’t afraid to lie in print.

But this llama had a secret. By day he was a bad mouthed, hyper aggressive paparazzo, but by night he would harass a different brand of social pond scum. Once a hardened criminal himself, he was perfectly familiar with the seedy underbelly of the city’s criminal element. And as it turned out, the combination of being from another planet, being bitten by a glowing gibbon, some mutated blood and being doused in radiation, eventually caused him to develop extraordinary powers, the likes of which no man could match. With his astounding abilities to read the thoughts of small rodents; to clear a city sized square block with his heinous farts; to slow dance to dubstep; and the less practical but by no means less impressive ability to sneeze with his eyes open, it wasn’t long before the criminals of the city started fearing his name. And from that day forth, that name was, the Amazingly Incredible, Somewhat Dark and Kind of Super, Kevin the Flying Green Alien Knight Llama. 

So here is a revised version of chapter 1. For those who are familiar with TKC (The Kevin Chronicles) from my journal, you might notice some changes, but the content is essentially the same, just some polishing. For those that aren't familiar with TKC, this is the first chapter in an ongoing short chapter series about a llama named Kevin, but prefers to be addressed as Albert. I started writing about Kevin in my llama reply comments and after being asked repeatedly to write longer format, I decided to expand on Kevin's adventures.
I have been posting these chapters over the past month and half in the journal, but I felt that the limitations of the journal format made it difficult to share the stories with other deviants, hence the repost as literature deviations. I will continue to post, hopefully, the previously completed chapters over this week, and then posting the new chapter, 7, at the usually time on the weekend. Chapters usually get posted weekly.
So, I hope people enjoy it. If you've read it before, I hope you are happy with the changes, and to those who haven't, I hope you get a kick out of Kevin and his wacky tails.

P.S. To all those who favorited the journal entries, feel free to fav these as well, but don't feel obliged to. The fav reply message will be the same as the journal entry ones were.

The rest of the series can be found here.

Thanks. It was a bit... unusual, would probably be the most generous term :D
Could be a little bit. Never really tried comics before, so I wanted to work on a oneshot throwaway idea first. Plus I'm still struggling to get Kevin's head right...^^;
But don't worry, it going to happen. :fingerscrossed:

I'm actually kind of playing around with transitioning The Kevin Chronicles into a comic, this chapter being the first issue, but it's still a ways away. Until then there's plenty more craziness abound. :D

Oh, that sounds really cool!
Personally, I like the idea of making comics, in fact I even have a good bit of practice with paneling and all that from over the years. (-Made random comic panels for personal reasons in the past.-)

Do you have anything in particular in mind for the comic, when and if you get around to it?
You ever thought about trying to get together a bunch of people to help you work on the idea?

Well, TKC in written form follows a jump from genre to genre with every chapter so that means I have a lot of material to draw from, no pun intended. I have a finished script for the first issue, based off an extended first chapter, but it is likely to be a little bit before I get to the drawing side. I will admit that drawing comics, while my main goal, intimidates me, but I have been making progress in terms of paneling composition and more recently perspective. I've been using Inktober as a personal challenge to develop story based scenes with clear depth and I am hoping that the skills and confidence I gain from that will make it easier to move into TKC comic edition. I do have a "finished" design for Kevin though, which is a bit different from what I've shown before and that should pop up sometime soon.
As for getting together with other people, well, I am a bit of a hermit and I don't really know anyone else personally that share similar interests so for the time being I'm on my own. Besides, considering how invested I am in TKC I'm not sure how well I would go with sharing the project anyway, so it might be a bit of a blessing in disguise. It does mean though that progress will be slow, but I plan on releasing pages as they're finished, with the first pages before the end of the year. Although considering how notoriously unreliable I am, I wouldn't quote me on that. ^^;
