Almost-Rans, pt. 1

I've been working on my entrant for the new round of Fist-a-Cuffs. This one occurs behind a veil of secrecy, so I can't show you the character I'm planning on submitting, but howsabout some of the ones I drew on my way to developing the cham'peen?

This is ANACHRONISTA! I like her a lot as a character. It'd be nice to find something to do with her at some point. But she didn't seem to have the bloodlust necessary to dominate the FACA.

Speaking of FACA domination: the heartiest of congratulations to Skin and Bonez for taking the Tag Team Tournament, and for looking so damn good while doing it!

And in Eisner news: local weekly, the Memphis Flyer took notice of my nomination! Thanks, guys!

I'ma just go on out on the ol' curse limb and say this is pretty M-F-ing Bad-A. Beautiful coloring.

Thanks, Shane. And don't think you're too old for me to wash your mouth out with soap.

God among men.
Just like you said.

the lw said...

Hey, did the Memphis Flyer interview with you ever run?

Evan said...

you'll have a tougher go of it this time, Joel. "Why", you ask? because I'LL have a fighter in the next round as well!!!

Everything about ANACHRONISTA! is extremely bitchin', but I especially enjoy her boots. They just work with the bunny helmet in ways I wouldn't have expected.

Pulpatooner said...

Thanks, everybody.


O Lovely Wife,
I never saw an interview in the Flyer. I'm now assuming that woman was just a stalker.

Once, you were but a student, and I was the master... now, I'm just the guy who is about to whoop your ass!

Other Chris,
I'm glad you dig the boots. The lw correctly pointed out that I missed an opportunity by not giving her mis-matched boots. Maybe a furry viking boot on the kicked-up foot. Or some Mad Max badassery.

Ah, well, next time.

This character can't just go away.

Pulpatooner said...

I'm glad to hear that, and I agree. It's got to be very much a back-burner sort of thing for a while, but I'd like to something kinda 2000ADish with her.

chrishaley said...

The very idea of you doing something in the 2000AD vein, but still with your style and sensibilities literally makes me almost as excited as when you start talking about superhero story ideas.
That makes me downright giddy.
