(Update) Takedown Part 7 – Escape Velocity (7 pages)

This installment is coming together very quickly. I just finished the pencils, and inking should go quickly. The keynote on this one is simplicity of presentation, and if possible a homage of Wally Wood inks, if I can manage it. Ink the lines and swash on a little light gray highlights, aaaaand its done. Probably in one week, just in time for Thanksgiving. The more color, the longer it takes. This one is going quick. After this installment (part seven) the only thing left to complete for issue Six is one epilogue, “Dinner with the Family.”

(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.

(NEW) OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKEDOWN: PART FIVE featuring the Quiet Ninja (8 pages in color)

Finally! My pens ran out this month, and I wasn’t able to get adequate replacements (art supplies industry is not helpful) So, I went with some computer fixes, adjusting my raw analog master pages with a few easy tricks – adjust brightness/contrast, adjust color balance, and a little bit of paint bucket for deeper blacks when my pens ran too dry to saturate well. Also, a few fun backgrounds for enemy HQ, just like last chapter. Usually, I just like to draw and post, and not mess around with a lot of computer fixes.

This installment is the one that dooms my G rating. This time it’s (V) for violence, but my Ninja is more than anything else a badass action hero. So what can you do? Pretty tame compared to what most teens see in their media…..
Enjoy!! Cheers, -B.

OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKE DOWN – PART 2 of 12 FOUR PAGES. Introduces Daisuke, the Ninja’s brother. I would finish it tonight, but I have had a fever for three weeks, so focus is difficult. I am flabbergasted I completed this much. I couldn’t fit Japanese and English onto the same page, so I prepared a short English script of people needing a translation.

enjoy

ENGLISH SUBTITLES FOR PAGE ONE AND TWO ABOVE-

Ugamoto Family Jet
Private Air Field, Alaska, 100 miles from Enemy base.
T-Minus 2 weeks to Bomb Clock

Daisuke (Ninja’s younger brother)
RPG will be ready to fly, but can you skate this fast?

Ninja (in the shadows, standing by projector)
I think so.

Daisuke
Yeah but the Olympic record for 500 meters is 35 seconds. Are you that fast?

Ninja
Yes. I’ve been training on skates for 6 months as a part of regular mission training.

Daisuke
And?

Ninja
You pants are falling down.

Daisuke
Yeah yeah yeah, already an old man at 33, huh?

Ninja
Shut up. I broke the speed skating record last month, though in secret. I’ll be fine. How’s the hack going of the enemy’s IT?

Daisuke
It’s going. The enemy’s IT admin and software vendors are all very inattentive, lazy types. There’s tons of backdoors to exploit.

Ninja
Last year, a sabotage team of agents working for us became the enemy’s software vendor. They actually renewed their contract with the client for one more year.

Daisuke
Oh you are sneaky, big brother. On Game Day, I’ll be taking down the enemy’s IT system by remote. I even have Stuxnet from the NSA.

Ninja
How did that happen?

Daisuke
I went to school with a guy who’s now an IT manager for Japan’s Self Defense Force HQ. He think’s we’re “Anonymous.”

Ninja
Careful! Don’t bring the heat. What if he talks?

Daisuke
No worries. Everything was done according to Ugamoto Spy Protocols. He knows nothing. He thinks I’m another classmate. Besides, I had to get creative. You only gave me two weeks.

Ninja
We’ll, I’ve been busy. Sacramento and Oberon business eats all my time recently. What are you doing after this?

Daisuke
Mom (the pilot) wants to go whale watching off Alaska’s coast. Are you infiltrating the enemy base one more time before the day we turn on the Bomb Clock?

Ninja
Yeah. In an hour I’m jumping from 4000 feet into the Enemy Base Zone, and going in one more time before we take them down.

MOM
Hey you kids, I have hot tea. Shall I heat up some curry rice too?

Daisuke
Ye——-s!

Ninja
Ye——-s!
