Short Story - Smashing Impact


Original story by James Roberts

Art by Ibai Canales :iconcanalus:

Script and lettering by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck:

SoD project by :iconi-sithlord:


Original art.

Original story from page 8 of text story Bullets by James Roberts, published in the The Last Stand Of The Wreckers trade paperback.

More LSotW Impactor in Short Story: Override, or Criton Reloaded (pages 1 and 2).
Read the Comments to that story for details about this Impactor and SoD Ultra Impactor!

Ironfist briefly appeared in page 4 of SoD: Magnus, sporting a slightly different color scheme (it's his Golden Age version).
Although he applied moer than once for a job in the Security Forces, he was always expelled/rejection for various reason. His first real battle experiences will come during the Civil War (as told in The Last Stand Of The Wreckers).

An older version of Impactor, known as Ultra Impactor, is featured in Short Story: Three Is Better Than Two: 1, 2, 3.
Ultra Impactor's final adventure, in SoD: Magnus, takes place before the debut of the Impactor of "Smashing Impact": how are they related? It's just a common name or there is more?
As usual, time will tell!

Oh, my....this is GOLD! And beyond cool!
Fantastic adaptation, and the graphics and storytelling are absolutely smashing!

Did I mention I have a great desire to read a graphic novel by Ibai that's like, 512 pages long..?
That's right, you heard me, have until July of 2012, when my next vacation starts!
Get on it!!!

That too?
How do you make it, on so many sides at once?!

I need to know yer secret!

Ah, the good thing about being unemployed is the vast amount of time to write and draw stuff! The bad is having to live with your parents. Hmf.
saganich's avatar
Ah, so that would be the solution to all my woes! :)

Must be awesome to have so much time on your hands.....
Although, I believe I'd rather starve than go back to live with my parents after nearly 15yrs of being 300km away from them.....when I go down there for holidays & such, 4 days have proven to be the limit which I can endure without going insane, after that I start thinking about knives.. :giggle:

Hah, I understand you. I went on vacation with them not long ago and I was living hell. I hope I get rich and famous soon so I can get my own chateau or something...
saganich's avatar

Rest assured, they'd move in with you.
In what was supposed to be the "party wing".

Haha thanks! Believe it or not, I'm planning on starting a graphic novel soon (even though it should be just around 60 pages long, I hope that's OK! :p)
saganich's avatar
I call shenanigans!!!

Hrmpf...well, as long as it's done on time (Jul 2012), I guess it's good enough.
THIS time...
