Thought I would try my hand at another web comic. I had to tear apart the site to get it to fit, so I hope everyone likes the redesign.
The last one didn’t go over so well. Some of you might remember the ill fated Jack The Giant Killer, I made it about six and a half pages in and then decided I wanted to do something else.
I guess the animated movie was it’s replacement, not the stop-motion animation that most of you are familiar with. No, this was back when I was convinced I needed to do a hand drawn 2D film (one of these days I’ll have to put up some of that stuff)
Anyway, in this, my latest attempt to find the source of the Nile, (i.e. what I actually want to do with my life) I’ll be adapting Robert E. Howard’s story The Frost-Giants Daughter.
Conan fell into the public domain a few years back, that’s why there’s been so many new R.E.H. books, games, movies, comics (everything you can think of really) hitting the shelves. So it occurred to me while I was painting this last sketch card, why not me too.
I’ve loved these stories since I was a kid, I loved the movies (the first one at least) my favorite comic growing up was without a doubt The Savage Sword Of Conan. Plus I’ve never really felt like I scratched that comic book itch.
I worked for Marvel on a few books and I had a short series for Image, but none of that stuff ever came out very well. Deadlines and editors, inkers, colorist, they sucked the passion out of that work for me. These days I can hardly look at any of it.
Anyway, heres my two cents in the Conan mythos. At the very least I think I’ll enjoy doing drawing it, and ultimately that is what I’m trying to do with my life … just enjoy creating art.
See you next time
