Covers: issues 5 (On the Run) and Special 1 (Sysyphus Part 1)

shastab24 on May 1, 2012

A new month brings twice as many comics to you.  Why?  Well, for one, Free Comic Book Day is in May, and it's fun to do a little extra, but also because this extra issue is a part of the Halloween Cameo Caper 2012.  One may think that it's a little early for Halloween, but this is a storyline that will take me into the caper.  But don't think it'll be a non-entity to the rest of the comic.  The repercussions will be important for events after Halloween.
 
Issue 5 will give us Sparkle and Astral.  The cover, at least for Astral's pose, was made utilizing a drawing book.  His muscles look really, weird, I know, but I for some reason couldn't get them right.  I like the juxtaposition, though, of Astral striking a heroic pose and Sprkle just sitting and sniffing a flower.  But dang, is it harder to draw these two, since their builds are more “superhero” builds than Eiderdown.
 
The special issue has two cameos on it.  That ever-lovable Chaos from Life and Death looks like he's fallen under Tempore's eye, while Hogan of the Webcomic Crossover and Cameo Archive swings his axe in the inset picture up top.  Though it's a picture which was taken some time before, it still would seem that Hogan is coming after me in that picture, for getting into the cameo game, myself (not to mention the big crossover project I'm planning–contact me if you want to be involved).
