(NEW) COVER for OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKEDOWN, Issue 6 of 12

TakedownCOVER_FNL
You can find the story (26 pages, up to part 5) here on this page (Free) Issue 6 – TakeDown

STYLE
Cover is a tribute to all the old cover artists of the Shadow by Maxwell Grant and others in pulp magazines of the 1930, which somehow works with the Japanese ad copy. I also surprised myself with all the Kaluta and Wrightston style touches. I first encountered their Shadow when I was eight (40 years ago). I loved their horror style on the Shadow, mixed with crime drama and pulp heroics.

TAKEDOWN CHAPTERS
Five chapters have already been completed (26 pages so far). Three more chapters left – I have been telling the story in a series of 4-8 page installments. I created a new page to group the entire story in one place for easy viewing. Please see here.

STORY
The Quiet Ninja is Japan’s Greatest Ninja and a key player in the secret Occult Wars. He is puritanical in his desire to destroy occult villains that seek to gain the upper hand against humans through sorcery and hocus pocus (see previous issues). His family has been on the frontline of this war for 2000 years. This issue is all action, and gets pretty bloody. Most of the story is silent action sequences with little or no dialogue.

Enjoy,
-B.

whew. I actually threw the latest Kentaro and Joey pages together in five days, despite health issues, from a script I wrote right after the Sacramento Comic Con last March (2014). It does feel like me in Sacramento after returning from Japan after 14 years in Tokyo.  It’s also a welcome opportunity to spend some time with Kentaro and Joey, walking the dog. I love both these guys. WIth their funny English from different sides of the ocean. This is definitely in the HUMOR column. And yes, sometimes they really do talk like that in California! WARNING — all characters are in continuity with the Oberon Destroyers 12 issues series, in particular, issue 3 (JUMP TEST) I am a very intent filled plotter, so there are some big surprises coming soon, especially concerning Kentaro, Our Man From TEPCO, which may contain spoilers, so let’s keep it between you and me, OK? “Loose lips sink ships.” Previous webcomics featuring Ken, Joey and Agent Deathray posted below.

From Left to Right:
Rivet-head, The Green Mist, Red Succubus, the White Hood, and the Yellow Gas.

DEATHSQUAD01


Rivet-Head (personal history) WARNING – CONTAINS HORROR and DARK HUMOR
Rolfie Huntsbrunner was a member of Ernst Rohm’s circle of immediate favorites during the Heyday of the SA. Young Rolfie (nineteen) adored Ernst, a much older man, who was at the peak of his power in the brand new, revolutionary regime. Rolfie was 19, tall, fit, loved sport, and very handsome.  He was in love with the radical idea of the military as an agent of change. He rejoiced at the vision of men in uniform sharing the wealth of a corrupt ruling class with the poor, now that their friends in the Nazi Party were  finally in power. The month of June (and swimming with the boys!) was gorgeous before the SS came to pound on the door.

In June of 1934, Hitler broke the power of the SA in the “Night of the Long Knives.”  SA leadership was arrested and executed along with other political rivals to Hitler as he consolidated his control over Germany.  Ernst Rohm was given a gun and told to do the right thing. Legend has it he shook so bad he dropped the gun and begged the SS men to take pity and spare his life. They shot him anyway and told everyone his last words.

Rolfie was arrested for treason, and first did a spell in prison for a year.  In 1935 he was transferred out to a special camp for Paragraph 175 offenders (homosexual acts), based on evidence obtained from interrogations of other Rohm favorites and their jealous friends.  He was there for one day and one night at a very crowded camp, before a man from Operation Stormcrow arrived asking questions. Stormcrow was a scientific unit asociated with Himmler’s SS.

They took Rolfie in manacles to their lab and read legal papers. Rolfie’s record included car theft, drunken disorderly, gambling, narcotics possession, inciting a riot, failure to obey a police officer, resisting arrest, assault and battery, suspected of homicide, guilty of treason, and homosexual acts. Therefore, he would have no say in the matter. Five men held him down, they strapped him to a gurney, and went to work.

Rolfie was a very early experiment, but he worked out for his controllers. He was one of the most feared agents of a secret occult war occurring in the shadows of WWII.

In the closing days of the war, the treatments on Rolfie (aka Rivet-Head) went better on his body than on his head. A shadowy international conspiracy offered to “buy the business” from the scientists after Germany’s imminent collapse, but only if the final package included Rivet-Head. Rolfie’s head was awake but his gross motor functions were deteriorating rapidly.

Being clever men, they had a spare head from another convict ready to go at all times. They popped off Rolfie’s head and replaced it. After that, it just never seemed like the old Rolfie on missions anymore.  The Black Curtain collects heads, and is proud of the place Rolfie has within his collection. It took a great deal of time and effort to find after the war. He is still awake and has no motor functions, floating in a jar.

Punchline:
But is Rolfie still gay?

GENESIS (behind the scenes/bonus track)
I had the idea for this 15 years ago when I lived in Tokyo. I had a blazing vision of 12 villains meeting in secret, dressed like a good pulp magazine circa 1933. I was reading a lot of the original Maxwell Grant Shadow stories published in the 30s, and reading a ton of interwar history (1919-1939), including true crime and gangster history. This was my first foray into actually constructing a story with scenes and beats, and I had no idea what I was doing. That failed attempt sent me on a course to self educate on script writing, story beats, character arcs, natural dialog, and then the humor just came naturally.

I worked hard on improving my drawing from a craft perspective. The real personal breakthrough on my writing was a script I wrote for something totally different in 2011. For over a decade I made dolls, and still have them. I ran my own website/online porfolio. And each year I thought about what made my evil doer meeting scene not work, and wrote more backstory on the individual evil doers, which is kind of the point. Then I found what was wrong, and where they could fit very well – Oberon Destroyers, my brand new project I started in 2012.

I am very proud of this issue –  its my writing, design, and figure work all pulling at the same harness and telling an entertaining story. 15 years later. Bwhahahahahah!!!
It’s like my Saturn Returns as an artist, but as usual, I am running a little late.

Satanic Deadbeat Dad of 666 Demonic Puppies Bound for Doom

 

DEVIL DOG: LIST of HEINOUS CRIME

  1. Ate his first owner twice: scarfed him, barfed him, and ate him again.
  2. Jumps onto the furniture without permission. Just that. It’s horrible.
  3. Makes humans beg for food (after kicking them off the furniture).
  4. Poops and Pees in inappropriate places, like the Grand Conference Room on the Black Curtain’s submarine, which is expensive to clean.
  5. Walks around like he owns the joint:
    If he marks your territory, then you are now homeless.
  6. He’s actually a very smart boy, aren’t ya boy? (snarl, bite bite bite, scarf, barf…).
  7. Chief Oracle of Satan’s Sleeping Sphere at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Satan’s Yellow Paw, Satan’s Agent, spoils Devil Dog. They are tight, share minions, eat humans, and sometimes go on a walk together.
  8. Oh What a Evil Boy!!!!

Rough pencils from the next issue of Oberon Destroyers: Meeting of Evil Doers, A Comedy of Douchebags (20 pages).

Devil Dog attends the meeting and sits on the furniture. We find out about the grand plan to displace humans. I have completed 12 pages of rough pencils, just 8 more to go, then inks, colors, word balloons and upload. The first draft of the script was written a year ago, but I recently gave it a major overhaul to give it an extra layer of humor and horror. Soon! Just a couple of weeks…
