I'm putting together a crossover project for next year to run through multiple comics and hopefully benefit the Hero Initiative.  If you want to participate, e-mail me at karamesser@hotmail.com or PQ me on this site.
 
I've also started an IndieGoGo campaign to help me pay for artists for my projects.  Please go to the campaign site and donate some money.  I would appreciate it if you could give money.  There are some fun perks involved.  The site is here: http://igg.me/p/213480?a=408482
 
Also, Heroes Alliance, here on Drunk Duck, has begun uploading a story I wrote and many drew.  Sure, I drew more pages than anyone else, but there is some great art in it, too.  I wrote the story two years ago, so it's nice to see it finally going up.  It's updating daily starting today.
 
Top page: It's the final page of this issue, and not what I had planned initially.  Still, it wraps up a really big question–how?  In my initial conceit, I never thought of how he got his powers, taking a more “he's a mutant” approach.  Still, this is not in an established universe, so there is no such idea for readers to draw from.  Plus, I wanted to give a superhero idea to it–that there could be some very easily from this.
 
Bottom page: The Gunman is meeting with Reidar Burnaby, who is a creation of KAM of the KAMics.  He's from a “Squirrelverse”, where everyone is an anthropomorphic squirrel, and he is part of a faction that wants to conquer universes, but so far have been barred from interdimensional travel by the SMOG corporation.  He got to Tyrion by another's means, and he's planning on analyzing that method to try to circumvent SMOG.
Also, the Gunman mentions being hired for another job, which will be shown in the Heroes Alliance issue currently updating.  Note that he has not done the job yet–just been asked.  All of this Caper happens before the Heroes Alliance issue.
