MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #8–the shape of things to come…

    Usually at the end of an issue of MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE I’d have some guest artist pin-ups to share, but since this issue hasn’t been printed I have no pin-ups!  What to do?!  Well, as it happens I did a few drawings of the “new” MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE team, as it will appear in the issues to come.  So prepare yourself for a glimpse…into the FUTURE!!!

   And here’s one I did in honor of the passing of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK director Irving Kershner…

   Well that’s it for MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE for a while.  In the meantime, prepare yourself for…SOMETHING ELSE!!!

MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #8–part 14(of 14–The End!)

Previously…The villains teamed-up to kill Fleming Hazmat.  It didn’t work out.  And now…the loose-end tying:

   There you go!  The end of the first “Season” of MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE.  The next issue–#9, which I hope to have done by the summer–starts the second season.  As you saw in the last post Matt Oblivion has joined Team Hazmat, so I think you can see where this Joan business it going.  What else can you expect from season 2?  Well, Britishworth’s threats will hold true and he’ll return.  Other people will be back.  New people will show up.  Things will happen.  You know…comics!

MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #8–part 13(of 14)

   I mentioned somewhere back at the start of all this that I made a big change in this story from when I thought it up in 2007 compared to when I actually finished it in 2010.  And that big change was this:

    FLEMING HAMZAT WAS SUPPOSED TO DIE AT THE END OF THIS ISSUE!

   There.  I said it.  Yes, MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE was going to be an 8 issue series that I planned to put out 4 times a year for 2 years, at the end of which the main character was going to get his.  And while I did do 4 issues that first year, I also changed my mind and decided to do 25 issues.  I’m now putting it out about twice a year…so we got a solid decade to go….ugh… As for Fleming, his fate is as yet undetermined.  Oh, and if you didn’t catch it:

   MATT OBLIVION HAS NOW JOINED THE MAIN CAST.

   So…get used to that.

MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #8–part 10(of 14)

   As you may recall I did MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #7 as an “All-Action” issue to make up for all the previous, talkity, dry stories.  So…here we are back at another talkity one.  Sorry.  But I think pages like this make up for it.  Right?

   So yeah…I had no idea what this Matt Oblivion scene was going to be when I strated writing it.  Think it turned out pretty awesome.
