The Adventures of Fist and C-B.O.N.E.

The story centers around Fist and his best friend C-B.O.N.E. who are getting close to graduating from college. The image above hints at, pretty well, what the story is about. I've always wanted to do a comic book that looks like a super-hero book but reads like an indie book. I'm sure there are some out there now that are doing this, but I have yet to see one with the sensibilities that I'm looking for, which is kind of like taking the day to day problems that Spiderman always deals with in his book, but pushing it farther and having more complex dynamics between the characters as they deal with the day to day BS, like what you do when you're so drunk you forget you have a girlfriend. Heh heh. Has that happened to anyone else during those fast-paced college days? Whoops!

Like a lot of artists in the animation industry, I love comic books and all the art associated with the medium, and have always dreamed of drawing my own book someday. Over the years I've created a universe that falls under the current title of The Adventures of Fist and C-B.O.N.E. I've sat down various times over the years to begin some new story, each time getting farther and farther towards completion, but have yet to finish one of them. As many of you artists out there have found out, as I have, it's quite difficult to see a long-range project through to the end with no budget and doing it all in your spare time. Anyway, the last series of pages I worked on came the closest to completion, and I've decided to post them here, with the idea that I would finally finish at least one story, even if I only get one page done a month. I've been thinking about it ever since I bought my Cintiq, how quickly I could draw, ink, and letter them now. Here is an advertisement, a sort of a would-be cover, of a story I was working on a few years ago. Not sure if this actually was from the most recent or not. I'll find out for sure, and then I'll post the latest story!
