(NEW) TAKEDOWN Part 7 – Escape Velocity (7 pages)

This is the second to final chapter. To see the previous chapters, go to the Takedown Page Here.

Oberon Destroyers – Takedown – Part 7 featuring the Quiet Ninja XXIII. This is the last installment, except for one Epilogue – Dinner with the Family. I actually have two more stories in the pipeline (at least half drawn) so I am hoping I can unroll a goodly portion of pages by Christmas and the end of the year, including something that features Prince Crow, weird homeless traveler from another world. Oshogatsu Omedeto!!

(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,

(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,

(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.
