#15 – The Mysterious Stranger (GWP) : The 30 Characters Challenge

#15 – The Mysterious Stranger (GWP)

| November 15, 2011 | 2 Comments

Of course I have a luchadore! Are you kidding?

Stranger here is inspired by some of my favorite Mexican wrestlers (Rey Mysterio Jr, El Santo, Mil Mascaras…I could go on). He was originally going to be called, “El Extranjero Misterioso,” but I thought that might be a little much. I was going to give him oddly colored skin, but I didn’t want anyone to think he was an alien right away…if he is one.

NOTE: I’m using Hero-O-Matic (aka Fabrica De Herois) to create my characters. If you’re a writer who can’t draw (like me!), you might want to try it!

About the Author ()

I'm not exactly sure what I should put here, so here goes. I'm a writer, written for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, AdHouse Books, and Simon & Schuster, among others and his stories have been reprinted in other countries. Mostly concentrating on creator owned work right now, so the challenge suits me just fine. I live in Queens (Astoria/LIC), NY with my wife, Michelle, and two dogs, Kasey and Kirby. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, but I'm sure I'll keep changing this. Oh, here's something. I contribute to the Project Rooftop site. The RetroFix column was kind of my idea, so I feel like that experience will help me out here.

  1. I like this guy, though he’s very sparkly! I find it kind of fun that he is completely covered except for his hands and feet.

  2. I wanted to give that illusion that he might not be what he appears, hence the stars. It could be sequins, but I’m falling on the idea of “otherworld” material.
