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!

Larry Hama Action Figure

Kickstarter from Fresh Monkey Fiction and REMCO

Okay, I didn’t really know who Larry Hama is until Numbers (aka: Helix Mary Sue) from Ages 25 and Up explained. However, I still think this is a good idea for a Kickstarter and worth a shout out here on the Moo. In brief: Larry Hama is a comic writer and illustrator who worked on stuff like the G.I. Joe of the 1980’s and Wolverine. I didn’t realize it, but I even have some of the old comics Hama worked on. Keen. So, yeah. Give the guy an action figure.

Brought to us by Freshmonkeyfiction.com and REMCO, this figure (when made) will be 4” high sculpted by Nick Whitmore and original art by Adam Riches. As of this post the KS has met its funding goals, but there’s still 15 days left to contribute and collect some special rewards. Anyways, click the link above for more information about the project.

Go Joe.

Thank You Comic Fest 2017!

Okay El Moochadores, it’s now been a week since San Diego Comic Fest 2017, and it was a pretty damn good con! I wanted to post about the convention sooner, but I had a busy work week, and then I got slammed by the con crud! I’m still a big snotty mess. Anywhat, we want to thank the convention organizers and all the attedees for an excellent con experience. Comic Fest was our sixth convention, and first con of 2017, and also a strong reminder of how awesome it feels to make art and have people actually buy it! Also, frigg’n great job on the Kirby Cafe. This years Comic Fest celebrated Kirby’s 100th birthday by decking out a bar/lounge with tons of Kirby art and covers! This was a cool con and we’re looking forward to next years convention, and hopefully a stronger portfolio of work.

Also, thank you very much to all those who signed up for our e-mail list. We’ll keep you updated with new con appearances, new illustration work, and anything else related to Atomic Moo and Murray Brothers Creative!

Anyways, I had to stay at the booth for most of the time were at the con, but here are some photos I pulled from the vastness of the internet to show some of the con happenings. Once again, not our images, but if you do a simple google search for San Diego Comic Fest, you can see where I pulled ’em from.

Cheers!

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!

NYCC 2016 Coverage from Beat Down Boogie!

Spotlight Videos One and Two!

We’re west coast guys and, for the most part, content with our lives here in sunny, beautiful, San Diego. However, we’re also very poor and unable to attend some of the amazing comic book conventions happening around the world. So, we rely on the stunning photo and video work of the fine people at Beat Down Boogie to provide excellent coverage of events like NYCC 2016. Just seeing all the beautiful cosplay and fun events shot in slow motion and paired with good tunes fills me… aww, who am I kidding. These guys are good at something and they get to travel around the world doing it and that feels me with a jealous rage! I’m terrible at everything and it gets me no where! Fuck’n life. So anyways; for what ever reason, check out the videos below to either enjoy them or seethe with the frustrating jealousy.

Enjoy.

Proactive Insurance: The Pros #3

the-pros-03-advance-review

Guns. Spies. Claims adjustments!

Hey El Moochaodres! Steve Stormoen has recently launched a new kickstarter for the third issue of The Proactive Insurance: The Pros. The 22 page book is already finished, but they need funding to get the book printed through PrintNinja. In issue #3, the team hacker, CLE, takes on a cult! Stormoen was nice enough to provide us with a preview issue for #3,covers which I thought was really good, until my computer started making noises. Strange noises. Then it died. Not the fault of the comic, but I kind of wish I could have gotten to finish it. Oh well. At least I managed to save a couple of sample pages before the crash, which you can view below along with the kickstarter promotional video. The Pros #3 is written by Stormoen, with art by Jelena Djordjevic, letters by E.T. Dollman, and design work by Greg Benninger. So, check it all out while I give my thumbs a rest. I’m typing this all out on my little iPhone and it’s really starting to hurt my hands. Anyways, Click the link above for more information on the book and contributor awards. Also, best of luck to Stormoen and his team. We hope to see future issues of The Pros. Hopefully on a brand new computer… that works.

Robotech II Motion Comic Test!

robotechii

Hey El Moochadores, you may have noticed a bit of a problem with the site today. Turns out ol’Chudd forgot to pay the bill to keep the lights on around here. Anyways, the site is back up and we even just finished recording a really cool interview with Kyle Roberts! Also, I know I promised to get a post on every day, but I really didn’t count on Chudd not paying the fucking bills! C’mon universe! Work with me!

I recently came across this great motion adaptation of Eternity (which I think later became Malibu… I think) comics run of Robotech II, and I thought it was pretty great. invidwar1I pretty much love all things Robotech (with the exception of Harmony Gold’s last few attempts to do anything with the franchise), and I’m hoping somebody gets their shit together and puts out a graphic novel of Bill Spangler’s fantastic work on the series. In fact, I’m really hoping that who ever is responsible for this puts together a motion series based on Invid War (early 1990’s), probably my all time favorite comic series (yeah, even a little bit more than Saga) ever! Anyways, check out the comic below, and I hope my fellow Robotech fans will enjoy it as much as I did!

Cheers!
