SYNOPSIS

THE HORRIBLE PLOT OF DOCTOR SATAN

In 1938 Doctor Satan opens a supernatural gate and summons a horrible and deadly monster in the middle of a titanic hurricane. All over Gotham City, police officers are brutally slaughtered by a ghostly executioner from the other side, walking with young black men, now ghosts, that never had a chance to see justice done when they were alive.

Over a hundred police could die in a fortnight, in a wave of supernatural blowback. The death of Jim Corrigan is key, as he is the first officer to fall. His death launches Doctor Satan’s deadly plot to use a wrathful spectre of vengeance to decimate the Gotham PD.

A circle of anonymous vigilantes gathers to face the approaching storm, working in the shadows. The mysterious Sandman runs the opposition to Doctor Satan and his insidious plot. Female adventurer the Black Fury and her partner, the Green Lantern join the group as new members. Carter Hall, international adventurer, brings the weapons as quartermaster, and Doctor Fate lends his strength as a sorcerer.

And deep in the dark of the night, the Shadow laughs.

“When policemen break the law, then there isn’t any law. Just a fight for survival.” –From the ballad of Billy Jack

JSA 1938: Blue Massacre in Gotham City (Pulp Story)

JSA 1938: Blue Massacre, the story of the Mystery Men that formed the first JSA in 1938, set in Gotham City. I do not own the copyrights to these characters, so these materials are NOT FOR SALE (fair use). DC has also been throwing away its Golden Age inventory, showing no intent to keep publishing. So, I thought I would show DC how to use their Golden Age inventory in a fresh, inventive and fun manner (FOR FREE!!). The final story is a 50 page pulp story that tells the story with words rather than pictures, and a few illustrations. See below for Synopsis.

First draft of part one (25 pages) is pretty tight. Could be done after this weekend. Part 2 is also mostly written. I just have to fix some pages and write the final battle (already plotted out). I just saw my income situation get some help, and my health is better. So, I hope to be posting a LOT more. The past few months has been difficult, but I did produce a lot. I am sitting on a lot of stuff that needs just a final polish and scan.

Should be a lot of stuff posted in this space coming up real soon. Enjoy! -Brian

JSA 1938: Blue Massacre in Gotham City.

THE HORRIBLE PLOT OF DOCTOR SATAN

In 1938 Doctor Satan opened a supernatural gate and summoned a horrible and deadly monster in the middle of a titanic hurricane.

All over Gotham City, police officers are brutally slaughtered by a monster from the occult world, who crossed over to our side by black magic. The creature targets coppers and raises ghosts to testify. All of these officers had a secret to hide, except Detective Jim Corrigan, victim number one. The Gotham City Police are hopeless as the union muzzles everyone. They were unprepared for a blue massacre by a howling spectre, and blood on the walls. Over four dozen police could die in a fortnight, when the harvesting moon will take the sky without shadow. Solomon Grundy has risen from the swamp, and and the man holding his leash is Doctor Satan, master of walking corpses.

A circle of anonymous vigilantes gathers to face the approaching storm. They form a circle of virtuous men, working in the shadows. The mysterious  Sandman runs the opposition to Doctor Satan and the Spectral Creature. Female adventurer the Black Fury and her partner, the Green Lantern join the group as new members. Carter Hall, international adventurer brings the weapons as quartermaster, and Doctor Fate lends his strength as a sorcerer.

JSA 1938 – is a period correct look at the Golden Age comics and Pulp stories of the time. I have applied my graduate degree in Interwar History (1918 to 1941) and a lot research to create an exploration of the Depression Era, just before Pearl Harbor.

(UPDATE) Health Report and Things to Do

prepresspile

Sorry to report I am still having health issues in my battle with cancer. Working on this series is my greatest joy. However, I slow up. I have a lot of half drawn things. My speed is solely determined by my physical condition, which is not so great right now. I hope to have help in a few weeks, which will help with my output. Thank you for your patience.

Here is what I am working on now:

(1) Takedown: Epilogue, Dinner with the Family (7 page comic)
Script and Pencils are finished. Needs inks. I need an assitant who can ink, desperately.
My output would double and speed up if I had an assistant who inked. hint hint..

(2) Prince Crow Part 3: The Hand of Crow (7 page comic)
The pages are almost finished, but need scanning and assembling in photoshop.
I have really cheap and awful equipment so this part is not fun and takes time.

(3) Oberon Destroyers Issue Seven, 3 Heroes Meet (in installments)
The script has been finished for a over a year, when I did some major revisions.
(Comic, 35 pages, first meeting of Prince Crow, Joey, and the Ninja).

(4) The Legend of the White Mask, Script for Radio Play. Humor and Mystery.
This is a 30 page, very funny script. People like this one. Rather than wait around for a
production to come together, I have decided to post it here to share with the world.
This   one is all me. Combines True Crime, Masked Western Heroes, Tales of Povety,
and the White  Trash experience. Chuckling all the way.

(5) The Blue Fist: House of the Purple Death, Script for Radio Play, Humor and Horror
Think: Boys in the Hood crossed with a Monster Movie. 30 page radio play. Again,
while I wait for a Production Team to call me, I plan to share it here. Just now
awaiting some minor alterations but mostly finished. Txt No pics.

I would post The Blue Fist and the White Mask right now, but I need a cover illustration.

(6) FAN FIC – Light and Fury – Green Lantern and Black Fuy together again with the JSA: Year Zero. Welcome to the Golden Age. 50 page Pulp mini-novel with a few illustrations. Features the Spectre, Doctor Fate, The Sand Man, Carter Hall, Jim Corrigan, and The Black Fury by Tarpe Mills. I started writing this last week, and finshed about 15 pagges. The plot is tight. No rambling story lines that go nowhere. Fan Fic but Made Like a Pro, DC. DC is having some isseus finding thier direciton on their inventory, so I thought of this as a way to help them with the Golden Age inventory. Fun stuff!!

NOTE: I do not own any of the rights to (6). I just plan on posting a copy of this prose here on this site, when I submit it to DC, who will no doubt ignore it. If you like Golden Age characters and grim detective novels than this is for you. My updates of these guys is solid. This is what you have have been wating for.

Positive Comments always Welcome. I could use the help.
cheers, -b.
