GGRRR Comics

The comics are a team book and written in a Marvel silver age style, with the first story arc based around City of Heroes, however subsequent story arcs have moved away from this a little. Originally the comic was conceived as a fan comic for the Defiant supergroup GGRRR (Guys & Gals Ready to Rock & Roll) and still features many of my friends from that group while also featuring some of my toons.

After completing the first story arc I decided to attempt to give the book it's own continuity with many complex themes and in-jokes running through the issues. The series is best described as suspense, with stories often told with flashbacks and pseudo existential leanings, also the comic follows a cinematic approach to comic story telling and has many pop culture references.


Core charcters used so far:

Hailstorm, Night Hornet, Neo-Chamber, English Rose, Fez, Tired Angel, King Kirby, Clickwork, Major Control, Virtue, Pathos, Cobalt Blaze, Apocalyptic Jester & Aspen


New readers should be advised that issue 18 is a good starting point, if you can't manage all the issues

Hyperthymesia (issues 7-11)

A story based around origins, not only do we learn some of the origins of some of the popular GGRRR members but we also gain an insight into what makes a hero a hero and likewise a villain a villain. This arc has been praised for it character depth with readers stating that they "care for the characters". Features Gods, Angels, Robots and erm......kittens.

Note - these issues were the first that I started to use Photoshop/Comic Life and a graphics tablet.

A Wilderness of Mirrors (issues 19-30)

A new Villain team arises and we gain new insights into the personal lives of many of GGRRR's members. New relationships are forged and some old one's are broken in perhaps the most emotional GGRRR story so far. How will the team deal with the unlikely menace of the Tax Man! The storyline will challenge the very nature of existence for our heroes. Mutliple sub-plots will all converge and produce an unexpected finale. This arc comes complete with a new art style.

If you're new to GGRRR then Issue 19 is a great junping in piont
