Starting tomorrow, I’m going to be doing something new here. To make up for the drop from three SecGov pages a week to two, I wanted something I could put up on the weekends that would be easy to get out there.
Over the course of my life I have created a lot of superheroes. As far back as I can remember I have been creating superheroes. The earliest I recall was Pat-Man. He was me with the power to turn into a wolf. That’s all he was. I’ve mentioned on the site before that around grade five or six I created a comic starring a guy called Zappo who had electrical powers (and an electrically-powered frog called Zap-Frog). Anyway, I never stopped and don’t plan to soon.
I’ve been a fan of the Marvel Universe since around age ten when I learned of it through trading cards and reading a library copy of the Marvel Handbook A-C a dozen times. The idea of a coherent fictional universe filled with all different types of heroes and adventures is what I wanted out of things. I figure that I have enough notes to populate at least four Superhero Universes with characters. So that’s what I’m gonna do.
For at least a year I’ll be putting up a sketch of a superhero each Sunday. Some will be totally new that I come up with as I sketch, others will be ideas fro Little PDR’s notes. I’ve said more than once that I don’t consider myself an artist and that I only draw my stuff because I don’t have someone else to do it. I will not be designing particularly great costumes or anything, but at least I’m getting ideas out of my head. That’s my goal. That said, at least sketching is easier than doing a whole comic page, that’s for damn sure.
