New Atomic Tails!!!!

Atomic Tails #16 is finally posted online! Yeah, Kind of took me a bit, but you can read about the making of the new strip on my Atomic Tails Blog (Trog’s Blog)! That’s right. I’m half-assing two blogs now. What the fuck… Anyways, the real life Chudd (aka: Jason Murray) created the logo that appears in panel three, and I think he did a great job with it. The Ascension of the Golden Yo-Yo’s may rise again. Maybe. I had a lot of fun with this strip and it was a pretty good learning experience. I’m already working on Strip #17, but click here to see all the strips so far! Also, also; help support Atomic Tails by following us on twitter (@AtomicTails) and Instagram (Atomic_Tails).

Cheers!

Misplaced: The Collected Edition

New Kickstarter for a four issue collected volume from Source Point Press

Hello again El Moochadores! Been awhile right? Well, we’re back and this time we got a Kickstarter campaign to share! Sooo… Let’s go!

Currently on Kickstarter is a new(-ish) campaign for a pretty cool indie comic; The Misplaced: The Collected Edition. Written and Illustrated by Chris Callahan, and published by Source Point Press, Misplaced is a collection of four issues about a dark supernatural tale of love and desperation in the aftermath of a horrific tragedy. Here’s a proper synopsis:

A young man pushes through the afterlife searching for the soul of his lost bride. But to find the missing, one spirit must return to the land of the living and uncover the truth of immortality.

From what I’ve seen, this comic looks pretty cool. Callahan has an almost “Sandman” like art style and I’ve always dug the other world adventures. Maybe it’s all the Lovecraft reading. Anyways… As of this post the kickstarter has met its goal and there are 19 days left to contribute. Also, they have some pretty cool stretch goals. If the campaign earns $4,500.00 then every single backer will receive a FREE digital copy of our newest release FALLSTREAK. A whole graphic novel! If the campaign hits $5,500.00 then the Misplaced will be produced as a hardcover volume at now extra cost to the backers. El Moochadores interested in contributing can hit the KS link above to read more about the rewards which also include digital copies and original art.

I’ve posted the Kickstarter promo video below, along with the sample pages provided on the KS page. For more information you can also check out the Misplaced page on the Source Point Press website.

Cheers!

New Atomic Tails!

Yeah, I’m actually (kind of) following through on something. Anyways, check out the continuing adventures of Chudd and Trog in this weeks Atomic Tails! Also, some news about the strip: This last week I started a Facebook page and an Instagram for Atomic Tails. However, I have no idea how to link to the Instagram on here, but until I do, please look me on there and follow the strip! I am not internet savy, but thank you very much to all the people who have followed Atomic Tails just in the last week.

Anyways, I’m setting a goal to get strip 16 done by Saturday… so back to work.

WARHEAD: Volume One

He has a giant, acid green atom bomb for a head

Okay El Moochadores, check out this new Kickstarter for one of my favorite indie comics; Warhead! If successful, this project will collect issues 1 to 6 in one awesome volume. Written and illustrated by Katrina Kuntsmann, Warhead is about Adam, a young grafitti artist living in London, who has a large (acid green) atom bomb for a head. Check out the KS synopsis:

He also has a giant, acid green atom bomb for a head. But then again, when your ex-girlfriend and landlord is en eight legged elk centaur, and your best friend has a cricket for a head, you don’t stick out so much. With Adam seemingly sliding in and out of this already surreal landscape, it begs the question how much of his world is real, and how much is a product of his mind.

As we follow Adam as he tries to keep his life together, we are invited to watch as his mind begins to unpin and witness what occurs when the two meet. Given life by Katrina’s rough, vivacious style and talent for cinematic pacing, WARHEAD delivers engaging atmospheric scenes and haunting imagery.

Katrina (Kat? Kitten? I think she’d be okay with that) has a great illustrative style, and there’s something very creepy-cool about the world she’s created in Warhead. I’ve posted a few sample images below from the KS page, but hit the link above to see original prints from Katrina and learn about contributor awards.

Cheers!

New Atomic Tails!

Okay El Moochadores, I just finished another strip for Atomic Tails! Check out #14 and the introduction of Buttery Wholesomeness. Based on the same Buttery Wholesomeness who occasionally helps out with the blog and podcast. The real life Buttery is much more a cartoon character. Anyways, more strips are coming soon.

Enjoy.

Atlantis: The Last Survivor: Episode 1

Hello El Moochadores! I’ve been trying to get this post written for the last couple of days now, but life keeps getting in the way. Anyways…

I recently finished reading Arin Leviti’s new indie comic Atlantis: The last Survivor, and its pretty damn good. Featuring illustrations by Giuseppe Cafaro and colors by Federico Blee, this fantasy story takes readers to the magic filled Atlantis and follows the adventure of lovers Agathon and Phile. Here’s the proper synopsis:

Agathon, the son of a member of the resistance, is kidnapped and taken to the capital where he discovers that everything his parents had taught him is true. His only hope rests on the mysterious demigoddess Phile and Temacles, a member of the resistance who has infiltrated the oligarchy.

Agathon and Phile, united by their love and the hope for a new beginning, fight a battle against time to restore the Flux, overthrow the High Priestess and save Atlantis from itself.

As far as independent works go this is definitively top tier. Carfaro and Blee’s talent as illustrators is on full display here and they do a great job of bring Leviti’s fantasy story to life. I really enjoyed this book. So much so, that I even went back (after getting a review copy) and paid for it just to make sure I do my part to keep the story going. Okay, true the books a bargain. You can get a digital copy of issue #1 on Comixology for only $0.99, but I’m broke right now! $1.00 is actually huge for me! It’s all relative folks. So, yeah, absolutely go pick up a copy of Atlantis: Last Survivor and have something cool to read over this nice holiday break. Well, nice for others. I gotta go back to work. damn.

Check out a few preview pages of Atlantis: Last Survivor below, but don’t forget to hit the link above and support independent comics!

Cheers!

New Atomic Tails!!!

Strip #13 is online!

I’m only sharing this here because we’re a geek creative blog and this is the sort of stuff I like to do. So… I just finished another strip for my web comic, Atomic Tails. In this one Chudd’s bad day goes from bad to worst as he’s evicted from his apartment. I really dug working on this one. Mildred is definitively coming back in future strips and I like working with a limited amount of color. Anyways, check out this strip and the others in the Archives area of the site. I also have a small blog on the AT site where I write about what I learned well making this strip. Hopefully I can get the next one done in another couple weeks!

Cheers

PARENT/GUARDIAN!!!

New Short Comic from Kyle Roberts!

Okay El Moochadores, here’s a great short comic from the creator of the Dark Hours, Kyle Roberts. The comic is called PARENT/GUARDIAN and is a part of From Beyond stories which have a great Twilight Zone, or Outer Limits vibe to them. I would say Heavy Metal, but so far no naked chicks. damn. This short story takes readers to the far end of our solar systems and has all the stuff we love in sci-fi: Giant robots and space battles! Roberts wrote, inked, and lettered the comic along with pencils by Rafael Romeo Magat, and colors by Ilaria Fella. I posted the first three pages below as a preview, but if you click the link above and subscribe to the email list, you’ll be able to see the comic for free! Good stuff. Anyways, check it out and remember to support indie comics and creators!

Cheers!

Proactive Insurance: The Pros #3

the-pros-03-advance-review

Last Day for the Kickstarter

Hey El Moochadores! Here’s a quick shout out for Steve Stormoen’s Kickstarter for issue #3 of Proactive Insurance: The Pros. This is a full color, 22 page book about “unlikely spies, an insurance company, the FBI, and a ten story handgun named ‘America’.” Pretty cool stuff. The campaign has reached its goal, but there’s still 10 hours left to help contribute and get some cool rewards. Check out the promo video below, but hit the link above to learn much more!

Cheers!


Insurance is about more than just car accidents and flu shots. Governments and corporations carry insurance policies for risk management that are so abstract, you’d need an ouija board to figure it all out.

With so much money at stake, would you want to take any chances? Company Insurance doesn’t. They decided to hire a team to enter volatile situations and determine the outcome with perfect certainty. A team of proactive insurance agents — The Pros.

Aerobicide – The Extreme Ninja Workout!

aerobicide-cover-mockup2

Kickstarter Campaign for a Retro-Action Comic Book Set in the 1980’s!

Okay El Moochadores, yet another reminder of why I’m kind of an awful person. The creators of this comic contacted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I would post about it on the Moo. To which I said, “Sure! Of course I will.” Then life happened, I got sick, and forgot all about it until today, when I was cleaning up my in box. D’oh! However, there’s some good news! First, there’s still time to contribute (keen) and second: The book has it’s funding (double keen)! So, get your wallets out while I tell you all about it.

Creators at Shonuff Studio have a great idea for a comic book. Okay, maybe not “fire breathing super-cow” great, but still pretty great all the same. The book is called Aerobicide: The Extreme Ninja Workout and pits a young asian-american women against the evil gangs of yuppies and weight lifters that plagued the 1980’s! Here’s the official synopsis:

It is the 1980s. Venice Beach has been taken over by Weight lifting gangs, Yuppies and evil ninjas.sheri-banner-web An 18 year old dance instructor, Sheri Ken, has inherited the skill of a ninja by the way of ancient chants on a cassette containing Heavy Metal music. She must use her ninja skill to annihilate any foe who threatens her dance studio and to make it in time for her next Hollywood audition.

They had me at “Weight lifting gangs.” According to the KS page, they’ve already partnered with Ape Enertainment to publish the book, they’re just seeking the cost of printing the first run of 24 page, full color, comics. Terry Parr, the comics creator, does all the talented art work for the book, which looks frigg’n great.

Though it is true they got their funding, there are still a few days (6 as of this post) to contribute and get in on some of the cool rewards like exclusive prints, a cosplay cover (Leggings!) and VHS covers. Which is cool, until you have to explain to millennials what a VHS was and why it was so important back in 1988… I hate kids. Check out the KS promo video below, along with some sample images from the comic.

Cheers!
