(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) Takedown Part Six – Showdown with the Reptile (7 pages)

TAKDOWN – PART SIX.
Here is the latest installment of Takedown, part six, Issue Six of Oberon Destroyers. It feels like I have been writing and designing this for three years, becasue I have. You can catch up on the story here on the page collecting all the chapters.

This is the final showdown. After this, there is one more chapter (seven) and one epilogue. Then I move on to Issue Seven, that gathers the entire team in once place.

Enjoy,

Brian

(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.

(NEW) OBERON DESTROYERS – TAKEDOWN: PART 2 of 12, FOUR PAGES.

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

TAKE DOWN – PART 2 of 12
TAKEDOWN_PART2_FNLpage1words TAKEDOWN_PART2_FNLpage2words

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!

(NEW) UPDATE – JOEY and KEN – WARNING – SHARED WORLD ALERT

UPDATE – 1.19.15 11:20 PM – Pages are done, just need to paste word balloons. WIll post In 12 hours.

12FacesKENTARO01 UDATE – 01.16.15 Joey and Ken: The Ninja in the Room (4 pages) is almost finished. However, I am stuck waiting on a delivery of art supplies – brush pens for gray tones, to replace my 12 pen set (fancy art supplies, $50), that all went dry at the same time. Running Late. Tick Tock, Mr. Online delivery service. Should be posted on this site by Monday. I already inked and gray toned most of the four pages, but I am stuck needing two tones “in the mail” Script is edited and formatted. Should be quick once I have those pens. And it looks really good.

UPDATE – 01.16.15 WARNING – SHARED WORLD ALERT Except for stories taking place prior to 1940, all comics on this site are one big story. Everything matches up with everything else, so if you feel like you are missing some key information, feel free to dive into other issues for the answer. Characters are consistent from beginning to end, and these comics are not “stream of conciousness.” In “Joey and Ken,” they talk about the Quiet Ninja XXIII, because he will be joining the Project Oberon team two issues from now. You have free access to 5 issues and additional strips (about 150 pages) about the Oberon Destroyers right here on this site (Free Sample PDF and Webcomics), so you have a half of what you need to figure out the big mysterious reveal soon to come. The subtext of the dialogue is pregnant with clues. Actually, I have dropped major burning clues in plain sight in all the issues, that build to some pretty huge reveals in a few months. The Seige of Sacramento will occur. I put my three main characters in one room for the first time in issue 7 (next issue is 6). Most of the dialogue for issue 7 was written 2 years ago. I am adding new material to the story, but the plot, mission statement, character arcs, and overall game plan has not changed.

Enjoy! -B.

2015newyearPromo3Faces12facesJOEY0112facesNINJAface12FacesPRINCECROWAgentDeathray02roguesgallery KEN_SecretFNL Joey and Kentaro, “The NInja in the Room” is the second of my webcomics (4 pages) featuring a conversation between two of my main characters from Oberon Destroyers. My workspeed is speeding up after the last two installments, so I would say – I think I can post it in one week (January 14). Script is finished, pencils are almost finished, so just inks and scan and  “Bob’s your uncle.” In one week. The topic of conversation? Joey and Ken talk about the Ninja based on completely 3rd hand information. It’s my tribute to Social Media where many people use the freedom of speech to talk about things they really don’t know that much about. It’s also a humor piece, with many fun quips by Joey in between amazing flights of creative English by Ken. It’s also a great way to introduce more information about Japan’s Greatest Ninja without committing to any it (he’s a man of mystery, right?). Mostly its my way of exploring the characters of Joey and Kentaro. Teaser Quote – “Small Dick Disorder is not just a straight male disease, Ken. All men are in this together.” Soon!! Thanks, -B.

(NEW) Japanese Holiday (New Years) Holiday Epic (Ninja History)

Every New Years, NHK produces and broadcasts a lush budget historical epic. I lived over there 14 years, so I remember some good ones. So, this is a bit of a re-broadcast, but it adds a lot more texture to my Ninja character, soon to be in a meeting with Joey and Prince Crow.
