Hard Science!

A few years ago - probably just before I landed a job with Doctor Who Magazine, and maybe six months before I got into Comic Book Idol - I had this idea. As ideas go it wasn't up to much - basically a remix of Challengers of the Unknown/Fantastic Four - but it would've been lively, fun nonsense, mixed in with a lot of daffy comics science and some fun time travel/soap opera hijinks. It was called HARD SCIENCE - and here are the first (and only) pages.





I think it stands up quite well - especially the colour stuff. And it was around this time that I realised I *loved* doing my own lettering. Woo!

Next time - something new!

UPDATED: image 3 now works. Knock yerselves out.

Dagnabbit!
I was just fiddling around in my sketchbook with an idea that was similar to your idea involving inspiration from Stan and Jack's Fantastic Four and Lost in Space...except I was hoping to do a bunch of alternate universe crap with it.

You know you might have to figure out a way with Glenn to figure out how to get Metrosaur into Jersey Gods now...

Ha, I'll get right on that!

Maybe I'll come back to this someday. It was cute.
