"Have a Tastes of Onca Cybernetics! Taste the Wrath of Mantaklaw!"

A character from my Underground Horror comics Genma Visage. Mantaklaw is a "legit convict" who was once leader of various Crime Syndicates and campaigns. At the start of the series it was revealed Mantaklaw was incarcerated on Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Britonum (formerly known as the Isle of White). He escaped the Isle before it's destruction in the "Great fire" only to be apprehended again. However by this point Mantaklaw had only served a short sentence and found guilty of little. He earned his freedom with community services, greatly helped by his strength, and eventually he gained newfound riches with previous resources, buying out several theme parks along the British Coast. Despite having a fair measure of comfort, Mantaklaw longed for the days of adventure that he had when he was once a criminal.
Ironically those days would return when Violent rioters from Killer Chav's army set one of Mantaklaw's theme parks ablaze in LittleHampton, springing the old villian straight out of retirement into waging a vigilante war against a government now corrupted by Killer Chav's men. Little does he quite fathom this turn of events would indirectly set him face to face with the supernatural elements that fester in the Genma Visage universe. What Mantaklaw's stake in these matters remains unclear, but one can be certain that there will be a lot of dead gun-toting Pikies along the way.

Mantaklaw is what he refers to as an Onca Cyborg. To the best of anyone's knowledge it means he is carved from the hardest alloys and stone from ancient times, that is gelled together with a symbiotic metal that acts as super strong flesh. The whole construct grants him not only his super strength and endurance but also ESP channeling abilities that enable him to use his signature KlawKlutch Laser Cannon; a hangun that can reduce armies to bloody rubble within moments.

The origin of Mantaklaw's armour remains unknown, no one knows Mantaklaw's real name, who he was or what he looks like under that Symbiotic skin. It's also far from certain on whether or not he was an Onca to begin. The origins are probably lost, for the blunt reality with this guy is
that Mantaklaw is Mantaklaw.

Character and Art by me. Done in inks, photoshop and photography montaging. I think the background is actually based on my trip to Greece a few years ago.

An overall Design Gag with Mantaklaw implies that he's meant to be none other than Dr Claw from Inspector Gadget, or pretty much how I envisioned him. Throughout the comic so far, i like the idea that where Mantaklaw once referred to the henchmen in his employ as "Incompetent fools! and "Buffoons" he now gets along with like best mates.

Good ol' Size 20 Steel cap Doc martins. Good for kicking a Doberman in the balls.
Proportion wise i recall muffing up a lot on that subject in this pic, and only the healing touch of Tippex got me through it. :P

Cheers mate.

If i recall in this case one of the legs was off by miles, and the other leg had ankles like a pair of elephants put together or something.

Lessons learned i suppose. This one is kinda an oldie in a way too. :o
