#10 Rush, The Boxer

| November 11, 2010 | 1 Comment

Before moving on to my next formal set of characters, here’s something a little different.

I’m a writer but sometimes I doodle and sketch to fire up my imagination. I drew this guy one day simply because I think the combination of hoodies and leather jackets is pretty badass. That inspired a screenplay (currently a working draft). I wanted a story that would be vaguely superhero/vigilante with a blue collar edge, since that’s what this guy said to me. So was born the story of Rush, The Boxer.

Rush was a retired boxer working construction and training his best friend, Frank, for a number one contender match. The one night Frank is brutally murdered by  Karl, a local gangster, over a girl and Rush is framed for it. After he escapes the police in a dangerous rooftop chase everyone thinks Rush has left town. No one suspects this no name boxer is actually lurking in the shadows, slowly taking apart Karl’s crime organization one piece at a time. When Rush is done poor Karl will be left worse than dead, he will be broken and alone.

  1. Very noir feel to the story and an awesome noir-modern look to the character.
