What would you do if you got superpowers at 12? Well, when Marco makes a deal with a devil, he gets to find an answer to that question. Superhero. He becomes a superhero. Because of course, he does!
Fellow Corkonian Kevin M. Smith (of Live Wire Comics) has gathered myself and the fantastical artists Ryan Ibbotson and Kame, to give you Ad-Lib Theatre, the first volume of the new comic series Marco The Demon Dude! It's an eighty page volume of four chapters, chronicling the origins of the Demon Dude as he comes to grips with his newfound super-ness, while also having a lot of craic. It's out in May, and you can grab it as an ebook or a book of the paper kind, woop!
I had the honour of collabing with Ryan on Chapter 4, a spooky eight-pager with some darker elements, that'll leave you wanting to know just what's going to happen! I sure am :D
Here are some sneaky grabs of the art that I got to do. It was new territory -- I had to draw a human face!
If you're curious, I'll point you to Live Wire Comics' Facebook, where more news about the launch can be found, and where you can have a look at the team's earlier work. It's an indie group, so if you can, please show your love ;D
But more importantly, recommended webcomics! I'm really conscious that it's a rather small list at the moment. Between making the comic here, prepping for the upcoming semester of college, doing collaborations and (still) setting the website up fully (I'm in the middle of making a cast page which could be going up soon!), I haven't set aside enough time to read more webcomics.I've been making some time, though, to catch up on the work especially of those who have subscibed here (not only because it's polite, but because interests overlap and I tend to really like them!). So if yours isn't here yet, don't worry, it should be soon, the list isn't super-exclusive or anything. But I also put a little note underneath the list for folks to PM their comics too. If you think I'd like it, no spam though. Usually the weirder and queerer the better! Commenting here is cool too.
The first week of Vulgar Vulgar as a webcomic is up, and with that, daily uploads are being toned down to uploads once a week. Every Thursday in fact! Thanks to everyone who's given it a looksie so far. The next page will be up here on Thurs 25th June 2020.
<< Post released a week back on Instagram.
Midweek, I set up a TopWebComics page, where you can vote for VV once a day (if you like reading it, that is!), as well as a Twitter (for folks who don't have a ComiFury account or RSS feed reader) where I'll be posting whenever an update comes out. A loooot of that sort of thing has been the brunt of what I've been at this week. Although right now, I'm in the midst of lettering the entirety of Part One too (almost there). And now, I disappear with a poof.
