(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.”

(UPDATE) TAKE DOWN: Quiet Ninja Strikes Enemy Base (Action Issue)

UPDATE, SUNDAY PM – Scanning now. In the next 12 hours.

UPDATE, WEDNESDAY, January 28, 2015 THREE PAGES – Pencil and ink complete. I’m now brusing in graytones, two of three pages complete. Take Down, Part One of Twelve, to be posted (I hope) by Sunday night.

UPDATE – JANUARY 23 – 2015 I just did the breakdowns for the first two pages of the next issue of Oberon Destroyers. I drew about half of it, but that was two years ago and I’m starting fresh with what I’ve learned since then. The story is the same, but the flow of the art will be much better. This issue was one of the first I plotted when I created the Quiet Ninja two years ago. I will be posting it 2-4 pages at a time, hopefully each week, like a Sunday Comics old fashioned serial adventure, To Be Continued at the end of each part.

This will not be a series of clever interludes and character studies. This will be one complete story about an attack on an enemy base by one lone wolf ninja, told in 12 parts, about 2-4 pages each “episode.” It will be mostly action without much dialogue (lots of quiet action with the quiet ninja), but it does introduce a lot of new information. It will also get extremely bloody. This could be when I lose my G rating. First episode in one week, new revelations included. Until then….

Oberon Destroyers: The Quiet Ninja (23rd of the House of Ugamoto)

(NEW) JOEY and KEN – THE NINJA IN THE ROOM (4 pages, New Chapter)

New Four Pages, Joey and Ken at Oberon HQ in Placerville, they talk about the Ninja and go to lunch. A little humorous. To read more about the NInja, Ken’s adventures in Sacramento, odd alien visitor Prince Crow, and Joey’s giant, please see Free Sample in the PDF section while these issues are still free.

NOTE – This comic features a character from Japan who does not speak fluent or perfect English. His speech patterns are based on 7 years of observing approx. 7500 students in Japan. Margaret Cho at the Golden Globes was recently bullied by PC bogus “anti-colonialists” for portraying an Asian who does not speak perfect English, to a monolingual, monocultural audience that is phobic of foreign accents. So of course they need foreigners to speak perfect English? That is not colonialist, racist and xenophobic? That is the “progressive” view?

This is why I dumped Leftist politics and draw comics. Americans should travel first, then talk.  If you can put all that aside, and just enjoy the damn comic, Have at it!! I had fun, for its worth!  cheers, -b.
KenandJoeyPART2_FNLpage1 KenandJoeyPART2_FNLpage2 KenandJoeyPART2_FNLpage3 KenandJoeyPART2_FNLpage4 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.

(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.

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.
