Can you feel that? We’re getting closer to the inevitable King vs. Granny showdown. It’s coming up in just a few more pages! You will believe the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll can punch a granny! Not much else to point out about this page, other than the spider-sense reference and that King may or may not actually have a boner…lovely.
I know it’s been a while so I figured I would give you an update on things. I am still working on King of the Unknown, and there are only about 8 pages left to do the linework on, and then I have to color those and finish coloring the 5 other pages I was doing colors on. A number of things have kept me preoccupied from the King for a while, one of which was working on a few commissions for some extra cash. Check em out:
I figured both of these would be appropriate to share for obvious reasons (KISS, the Walking Dead? Uh, yeah, Duh!), and you guys would get a kick out of them. The Walking Dead one was actually done for Tom and Tara Alexander as a gift for Tom’s sister Laura (who is featured battling zombies alongside Daryl from the show). If you have picked up a copy of the Once Upon a Time Machine anthology from Dark Horse Comics (and if you haven’t, you should, because it’s awesome!), you may recognize Tom and Tara’s names…because both have stories in said anthology (as do King of the Unknown peeps Andrew Carl and Marcus Muller!) and they’re just all around swell people. Both commissions were a blast to work on, and I will definitely be doing more of these in the future.
Well, that about wraps things up, but I will definitely start running some full colored King pages soon. So be sure to keep checking back in as the plan is to get the comic back on schedule and start updating on a regular basis like it used to (remember that? Ahhhhh, good times).
The Sword and the Granny
I didn’t want to make you guys wait any longer than you already have to read new pages, so here’s a lettered black and white page. Updated color pages coming soon! I promise!
I had a bad case of the flu over the holidays, but things are getting back on track, I want to thank everyone who keeps coming back to the website for sticking with us while you wait for these meager updates. I really appreciate all of your support and hanging in there with me while I get this comic back on track.
All the best, and have great New Year!
Yeah, I know it’s been a looooong time since I’ve posted a new King of the Unknown page up here (even longer since I posted a full color one), but work is still being done on the King, so I haven’t given up on it if that’s what you’re thinking. Quite the contrary actually – part of the reason I haven’t posted anything new in a while is I’ve been kind of hoping to find a print publisher for KotU, and I didn’t want to run the whole story online before a print version came out. So if there are any publishers reading this right now that are interested in the King, I would love to hear from ya!
Also, since it’s the holidays and I could use some extra cash, I’ve decided I will take on a small handful of commissions at a super cheap price! For anyone that is interested, you can contact me here.
Since we’re talking about the holidays, I also have a fine gift idea for the comic fan in your life, how about the Once Upon a Time Machine anthology from Dark Horse Comics? With 25 different stories and weighing in at over 400 pages, this mutha has something for everyone in it! Also, I may have done artwork on a 32 page story in it…and KotU editor extraordinaire Andrew Carl may have edited this beast of an anthology…just sayin’ is all.
Happy Holidays, everyone! More King soon! I’m workin’ on it!
Judo: An elderly person’s natural weakness!!! That and Werther’s Originals…
I’m still working on finishing up the linework for the rest of this story before I get into coloring these pages, but I didn’t want to keep you waiting so here is a black and white lettered page for you to read in the mean time.
Not too much is left of the story to finish illustrating, so I should have some finished colored pages for you to check out soon.
