#1 Dan Slade is… The STEEL F.I.S.T.

| November 1, 2010 | 7 Comments

Just wanted to briefly say that I’m super-psyched for the 30CC!

I settled on a Public Domain Superhero called THE STEEL FIST for my 1st character. I love these public domain characters and I thought let’s give him a remodel.

Daniel Slade is an International playboy and gambler by day. He is also a commander and top agent of F.I.S.T.: a global secret agency dedicated to bringing high-tech justice to evildoers and crime syndicates who would undermine our shiny plastic democracies! Dan is seemingly felled by diabolical minions of DIRECTOR: GOLGOTHA and his JET HARPIES- crashing his private party jet into Mt. Vesuvius while attempting “The STARDUSTER IMPERATIVE”, saving Italy from destruction. F.I.S.T. technocrats save the near-dead Slade and rebuild him with the most futuristic limb/organ cloning and cyborg technology known in the year 1976! Now equipped with his Atomic-Steeloidinium Cyborgarm, and other improvements, Dan Slade is… The STEEL F.I.S.T.!

About the Author ()

I'm a bohemian, freelance fine artist/illustrator/multimedia designer stubborn ape-man. comic book illustrator and /filmmaker/animator/ in the past and for long-term ambitions. I like to cook. 'Tend to be more of a Coffee house type. Art & film fan: I dig experimental & highbrow while gobbling up the guilty pleasures of underground and lowbrow. Basically I'm a crazy Sicilian/Puerto Rican-artist-Geek! For my whole life I've been an artist. No weekend warrior- every day. I don't like the so-called "real world"; I feel much better off for being either in collision with it or via creativity, providing my tiny fraction of an alternative to it's grind. Art and creativity, dreams and stories- all that is the only bulwark against the dehumanization of the stuff that can get us down and ground up- so I plan on being part of making the former. Art=action=alternatives. Nuff said. Currently, I am producing art in preparation of the release of a webcomic with creative partner/friend, Bill Woodcock, Jr. This Graphic Novel in serialized form called HOLLIDAY.

    WOW thanks for the good word, guys! Characters like “Dan Slade, The STEEL F.I.S.T.” will NOT fall into obscurity. I think tomorrow I’ll draw Director Golgotha or a Jet Harpy.
