THE VANGUARDIAN: The GAME Exists Behind Legends http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/08/12/the-vanguardian-the-game-exists-behind-legends/ http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/08/12/the-vanguardian-the-game-exists-behind-legends/#respond Sun, 13 Aug 2017 03:20:53 +0000 http://dangercomicscorp.com/?p=1968 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]>

Hope this finds you amidst a great weekend.

For those that have been following THE VANGUARDIAN over 8 weeks, we have come to the third act of Kings & Pawns: Chapter 1 – Illumination.  If you have NOT been following “The V,” then stop reading this to read THE VANGUARDIAN -To Date at dangercomicscorp.com.  A spoiler or 2 from previous posts may cause grinding & gnashing of teeth. Okey-dokey? Cool.

To start, we know the name of our man is Einian (see pg.7 – posted 8/1/17.) In my research for “The V,” I came across this great, old, Welsh name. Einian means “anvil.” His name will have deeper meaning as we go forward.

Additionally, I hope you have been brushing up on your Descartes.  We’ll be going into a cartesian, realistic dream lead by Einian’s mother, a familiar voice to him narrating the vision-quest from the first post of The V: K’s & P’s – Ch.1.  This week’s post (Tu., 8/15/2017) will be a massive “info-dump” in context with a familiar legend.  A background of the  GAME, and Einian’s possible role within it, may result in some damage within…& without!  Don’t miss it.

In ANOMALY news, Dave & I are cooking up Rock Bottom!, the next rippin’ yarn & 2nd adventure of Jefferson Monroe, the man outside of time that fixes Time!  We’re going back to 1947, so I get to draw old trucks & our cool cowgirl, Dinah!  We’ll be going back to our ANOMALIES roots, working on old pages and fleshing out new ones!  Stay alert to DANGER!

Remember go to dangercomicscorp.com to sign up free for alerts!  We have a Patreon page link at the site where you can support the DANGER in making comics!  All of it goes into making rippin’ yarns!  Remember to get your friends into DANGER, too!

Thanks for all the continued support!  See you Tuesday for The V!

THE VANGUARDIAN: Let’s take a break…a psychotic break! http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/08/08/the-vanguardian-lets-take-a-break-a-psychotic-break/ http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/08/08/the-vanguardian-lets-take-a-break-a-psychotic-break/#respond Tue, 08 Aug 2017 06:56:38 +0000 http://dangercomicscorp.com/?p=1966 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]>

If you have been following THE VANGUARDIAN, then you have followed him through the same vision-quest. In Ch.1: Illumination, the images of a cosmos-faring race seeking it’s survival were revealed to you & our title character. But, he has known he was in a dream-state, thus far. Well, after six weeks of patiently following him, it’s time for a break. A psychotic break.
A familiar, female voice has been relaying the tale of the Enlilian seeding of our galaxy; but our man has not been able to quite place her. Well, it’s time for something to kick a door open that confuses dream with reality! Who do you think she is? Find out in a few hours at dangercomicscorp.com!
In ANOMALY news, I’m busy revisiting the next rippin’ yarn, Rock Bottom! It’s another tale that was done before we fiddled with physics and shredded space-time in ANOMALIES. This go-around, Dave Thomas has added a few new pages, bringing it up to a 12-page, time-travel adventure. Since posting ANOMALIES, Dinah Stonehouse, our cool cowgirl, has become pretty popular with readers. She’s essential in the DANGERous universe. She’s got plans that will be revealed!
Well, that’s about it.  Keep getting into DANGER and get somebody you know into DANGER, too!
We hope to see you in a few hours for the next post of THE “V.”

The “planetissimal” orbits outside the rings of Jupiter. (From THE VANGUARDIAN #0)

 

View of Saturn from Titan – C. Bonestell

Chesley Bonestell

Before Hubble transmitted stunning images of our universe, scientists relied on artists to visualize their theories. In my opinion, Chesley Bonestell is the best.
Mr. Bonestell could take the theoretical and anchor it in visual terms that were relatable to all. For that reason, he’s my copilot when rendering backdrops for our yarns at DANGER COMICS.
For example, THE ANOMALY: Monster Moon was a visit to Zeta- Reticuli, a bone fide binary star system a few dozen or so light-years away. Both stars are yellow like ours and one has a “hot Jovian” orbiting it ( like Jupiter, but with more water-based compounds and what-nots.) You might have seen AVATAR. Pandora orbits one.
In THE VANGUARDIAN, you have been taking a trip (or tripping) in a vision-quest through our galaxy with some novae and nebulae. If they seem familiar, then go to some Hubble image sites.
Believe me, I know we make time-travel stories and scifi yarns. But, there’s something about putting in some “reality” in them. With space art, the truth is often stranger than fiction.
Thanks to my father for getting me into science and science fiction.

See you Tuesday for the next VANGUARDIAN post!

Chicken Fat: Set Dressing in THE ANOMALY http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/07/25/chicken-fat-set-dressing-in-the-anomaly/ http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/07/25/chicken-fat-set-dressing-in-the-anomaly/#respond Tue, 25 Jul 2017 13:32:04 +0000 http://dangercomicscorp.com/?p=1942 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]>

 

I love a good chicken soup. I remember my grandmother using the skins to make a good stock. No cheating with bullion cubes with her. Truly, it made for a tasty foundation to a great soup!
In comics, the term, “chicken fat” refers to the “stuff” in the background of a panel. Comics is a visual medium like theatre and film. Set and costume designers; & art directors and set dressers make sets for the actors play in. It’s no different in comics.
Amanda Conner (Harley Quinn, Painkiller Jane, Power Girl) is the best in backgrounds, in my opinion. She’s not called the “Queen of Chicken Fat” for nothing. Her characters are immersed in wonderfully packed environments. Check out some of her work through the years. In a deadline-based business, the amount of work is stunning and aspirational.
When we come back to 1947 in the next ANOMALY chapter, Rock Bottom!, my hopes are that I put enough chicken fat in for a tasty soup
In VANGUARDIAN news, we continue to travel with our title character in a vision-quest for Illumination. Keep asking yourself “Who is the mysterious woman recounting the Enlilian’s journey?” and “Are these visions his?” Things will be revealed in good order!
See you in a few hours for the next post of THE VANGUARDIAN!
Get into DANGER, today!

The OVERSEER: Good for Enlilian Survival. Bad for Enlilian Free Will. http://dangercomicscorp.com/2017/07/17/the-overseer-good-for-enlilian-survival-bad-for-enlilian-free-will/ Mon, 17 Jul 2017 23:23:04 +0000 http://dangercomicscorp.com/?p=1913 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> In last week’s post of THE VANGUARDIAN: Kings & Pawns, we met the Elilians‘ construct, the OVERSEER. A super-computer of their making, the Overseer is the brain of the planetissimal, their ark to the stars. It is responsible for the health and care of this organism. The planetissimal, if nothing else, is a massive organism, “pregnant” with Eggs, the stasis pods of the Enlilian survivors. However, after eons of wandering the cosmos in search of habitable worlds, it seems reasonable that an artificial brain with such power would attain self-awareness on a massive scale.
Consequently, the Overseer, like any sentient being, has an agenda. Going beyond it’s programming, it learns every time it finds a suitable planet to “seed” with its Enlilian children. It makes all the decisions for the Elilians, also. Though it may not have been the intent of Enlilian Elders to abdicate their will to the Overseer, it has happened, nonetheless.
Becoming more efficient with experience, every potential planet would be settled by various methods, as ithe Overseer imposes its will. Some of these methods will be shown to you and the title character as we continue the vision quest in Ch. 1: Illumination,
tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone for continued support of DANGER. While your at it, get some friends, family & other beings with a cortex into DANGER, too!
See you tomorrow in the ether for the next post of THE VANGUARDIAN!
