Gwenna continues to recount the last run in with Ro-Man. I also included another old hero Zanzibar the Magician. Zanzibar has a fez, so that makes him cool :)

I tried something different with the Photoshop effects, I tried a color halftone filter instead of my uisual grain filter to get more of a four color printing look. I'm not quite certain about it, due to the slight Moiré effect especially on the background colors. But I'm pretty happy with it and I might try it again later.

Nice splash page. :) The filter did the job. Makes me wish I had Photoshop. (Or knew how to use it, even!)

Well, this is about the fourth try at this page in Photoshop. My biggest issue was getting the file size down to something reasonable.

A good, free alternative to photoshop is Paint.net it's got most of the same features as Photoshop, if not as many filters.

Your comic is colored by hand? Damn that's rather impressive actually.

Blue Beetle? the original fox comic one?

Yep. I'd always envisioned a lot of the old Fox Features Syndicate heroes as being part of this universe.

When reading over a decade after posting, I thought Zanzibar was Matt Smith's Doctor, but that is not a sonic screwdriver in his hand.
