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.

The Mask of Doctor Satan (Short Story Illustrations)

The five leads of the Mask of Doctor Satan. Total story length in text – 50 pages. Released in three parts, with cliffhangers.  The first part will be soon. Very soon… I have finished the first twenty pages, which not needs final checks and edits. I am very methodical. I have an excellent idea of who these men are. But as they say, no spoilers.

These are the five protagonists. I like an ensemble piece. Set in 1938.

OBERON ROGUES GALLERY (The White Hood and The Yellow Gas)

 

Click to enlarge. I use a color names scheme that is three parts Japanese, one part pulp era stories, and one part golden age comics. Kirby’s The Red Ghost is an old favorite. I could never top three gorillas, each with their own super power. Kirby was amazing. I hear his Hijacker will be in a Marvel Movie. They’ll probably screw up the outfit. Just do Kirby!!!

I also seem to be channeling a lot of Steve Ditko too, unintentionally. I grew up drawing Ditko and Kirby. You can see it all over Issue 5 – Meeting of Evil Doers.  These villains will be featured in upcoming issues, when there will be a lot more action. Fight! Fight! Ninja and The White Hood!!! More updates soon.

Oberon Destroyers Design (Unfinished from the Sketchbook)

I did this about three years ago with characters I designed over five years ago. I ended up working more on stories that go, rather than pictures that sit. The three villains are now featured in Meeting of Evil Doers. VIllains Die Angry

ENTER: THE DEATH SQUAD (ROGUES GALLERY)

To be featured in issue 6 (next one), and 7, 8, 9 and 10. Action is in the wings.

From Left to Right:
Rivet-head, The Green Mist, Red Succubus, the White Hood, and the Yellow Gas.
Each has a unique history and character (see below), so please don’t judge a book by its cover.
I am also working on several more two page webcomics focusing on a couple of particular characters, probably Joey, Kentaro, and Prince Crow’s Evil Twin. SEIGE of SACRAMENTO is where we are going now, see issue 5.

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?
