From The Clone Saints Chronicles: Our project has its own guardian angel in the… “person” of Uriel, who, while giving us credibility and motivation that we’re on the right path, seems to care nothing about the results. He stares for hours on end at his paintings -which are mostly total pants- broken only by smoking and buying more paint. I am under the impression his presence is a penance.

DAY TWENTY-NINE – Saint Dymphna

| November 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

From The Clone Saints Chronicles: While problems with the cloning process are not uncommon, the tenacity of Saint Dymphna‘s insanity-inducing abilities has convinced many of my colleagues that we should abandon this particular matrix and try one with a more real-world applications, like Saint Joseph. I can’t imagine anything more dreadfully boring. Let my critics say what they will, Dymphna will prove to them the benefit of letting go once in a while.

DAY TWENTY-EIGHT – Saint John of Cupertino

| November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

From The Clone Saints Chronicles: With Saint Joseph of Cupertino, we tried to remove the “slow” traits he was noted for during his first life, but results were… horrific. Ultimately, this Joseph is not too different form his progenitor: prone to bouts of ecstasy and levitation. However, this incarnation gets more joy from his teddy bear and Snickers bars than visits from the Pope.

Day Twenty-Seven, Saint Marthe Robin, Supermodel

| November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

From The Clone Saints Chronicles: Saint Marthe Robin is less interested in the betterment of humanity than she is being worshiped and dressing well. In her previous life, she subsisted only on the Holy Eucharist for fifty bed-ridden years, and now she walks the runways of Paris and Milan, a highly sought-after model. Let her. Eventually, she’ll come back to us. For her life-giving shots, if nothing else.

From The Clone Saints Chronicles: Saint Lucy was martyred a virgin (naturally, being female) by either being given Holy Communion, a disease she caught in jail, a knife to the throat, or beheading. But we favor the beheading story because that was all The Church has of her when we went to harvest her DNA. It’s eyes were missing which gave credibility to the authenticity of the relic as Lucy’s eyes were gored out by a fork according to legend (less clear is if the goring was self-inflicted or by a Roman guard). Shockingly, they did not grow back during the maturation phase, but are instead supplanted by a cold light.

Day Twenty-Five – Saint Cyprian

| November 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Saint Cyprian was a sorcerer who when confronted by the power of Jesus, burned his books and managed to become one of God’s BFFs which earned him a place in the Good Books. Male saints always amaze me that they can be total pricks for most of their lives until they meet the Lamb and then they can keep on being pricks but with .. sanction. Female saints die virgins or beheaded. Or both. Mother Theresa being the exception that proves the rule, of course. Theresa aside, I think there’s some sexism here. Sexism aside, Cyprian gave up a shitton of power for a doomed love affair, and that doesn’t even pass the sniff test. I could see Cyprian -like any male saint- taking advantage of a good thing and not letting his old life go.

So, today’s character is Saint Cyprian – Beloved of God, and Follower of Satan.

Also, he looks like my brother. This may -or may not- be on purpose.

Day Twenty-Four – The Descendants

| November 24, 2012 | 0 Comments

Due to sickness and holiday, I have fallen four days behind in this challenge, so the only way to catch up was the create a team of four characters. Please forgive the hastiness under which they appear. I present: THE DESCENDANTS! Each team member has a famous ancestor and they are heirs to their power and authority.

NASRULLAH HUDA: Descended from Aladin, Nasrullah is still in possession of the flying carpet, except the wear and tear of the centuries left only enough material for her to fashion a doublet from the once magnificent tapestry. It allows her to fly much as one would imagine a jetpack would.

MONA LASAR: Mona is in possession of the Seal of Solomon (and thanks to my terrible drawing skills, it would appear his hands as well). The magic she works is neither good nor evil, but what her intentions make it so.

AI CHAN: Ai is descended from Gan Jiang of Chinese legend and wields the Ganjiang Sword. She search for its twin, Moye.

SISTER SOBRIETY: She does not per se own a relic, but is herself a relic: a clone of Saint Teresa of Ávila, made from the heart that was nightly “trasverberated by the Love of God.” It is not known what powers she has beyond a sharp intellect and a keen (yet modest) fashion sense.

Day Eighteen – Old Man Ra

Day Seventeen – Eye of Horus

| November 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

NAME: Eye of Horus

The Eye of Horus is kept in the dark of the hood he wears in order to better prophecize. He can see where others cannot through visions and through the eyes of others. He is, however, intensely secretive and will not always reveal what he knows.

Yes, I’m late for yesterday, but I’m also ahead for tomorrow.

Day Fourteen – The Tacit Approval

| November 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

NAME: The Tacit Approval

I am a day behind with 30 Characters because I went to Pittsburgh yesterday to see Neil Gaiman give a lecture on 15 years of Stardust (it was an excellent time as you can see). I will have my fifteenth character up in a few hours once I figure out something in Photoshop (or, more likely, have my brother show me how to do it).

The Tacit Approval originally was going to be a superhero crouched on a wall watching someone get mugged. He wouldn’t move to intervene. He’d just watch. Then I thought, “What kind of hero is that? Or villain? Of whom is he approving, the victim or the criminal? And what the hell would one wear to a gig like that?”

So I changed him into your douchebag boyfriend who leaps across your dog (not shown) to get to the TV to catch the Game. He comes complete with douchebag hat, Pabst Blue Ribbon, cut-off shorts and pirate boots. Just because. He doesn’t want to talk about your feeling because he knows you know he loves you. Besides, the Game.

NAME: GMoccultist

A magician with the power to create worlds. He’s a little mad. He’s seen the Other Side and the cogs that move the Universe. He is a close personal friend of the Quantum Bunny.

A TON of thanks goes to Joe Palmer for the inspiration for the character!

DAY TWELVE – The Infanta

| November 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

NAME: The Infanta

The Infanta -technically, an Infanta- is a prince or princess of the Underworld, the reincarnation of a soul sacrificed to Moloch in the Valley of Hinnom. Is the soul still innocent and pure, or has it been traumatized by the knife and the fire? By the time we know, it’s way past time to do anything about it.

DAY ELEVEN – Tabernacle

| November 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

NAME: Tabernacle

Tabernacle is an angelic being who carries within itself a single spark cast from God’s fiery body. Its purpose is to make itself known to one person at a time and, if the person is willing, enter his or her body. In exchange, the host receives knowledge and power. Tabernacle makes no attempt to guide its host to make “morally upstanding” choices, rather allowing the person to decide how to use his or her revelation best.

NAME: Sioux Chef
OCCUPATION: I’m pretty sure I don’t have to tell you.

Damn misspellings

I had a lot to do after working today, so the was only enough time to rough out a sketch and scan it. Lord, I’m woefully out of practice, but I’m starting to re-enjoy this process.

DAY SEVEN: Black Mamboo

| November 7, 2012 | 0 Comments

NAME: Black Mamboo
SECRET IDENTITY: Modeste Delphine
POWERS: A dancer in life, Modeste was destined for fame and fortune until her great-grandmother’s ghost began visiting her in the dead of night, calling her to be a Voudon high priestess. Modeste tried her best to ignore the apparition, but the old crone was too powerful, too insistent. Modeste tried to leave new Orleans to avoid this unwanted path, but her bus was struck by a train, killing her and everyone else on board. Ironically, on her death all the powers she didn’t want in life awakened and kept her from passing on to eternal rest.

SECRET IDENTITY: None. This is who he is.
LOCATION: Marioworld
POWERS: Rockasaurus is made of rocks and his body is full of hot acid. The acid drips from his tail and when he’s mad, it steams out his ears.

This is my eight-year old nephew’s creation. He drew it and (mostly) inked it with some help from me.

30 CHARACTERS: Day Three

| November 3, 2012 | 0 Comments


Because every Universe needs a God-repelling metal: Obdurate. In Judges 1:19, the Bible says that “The LORD was with the men of Judah. They took possession of the hill country, but they were unable to drive the people from the plains, because they had iron chariots.” This is the metal those chariots were made of that prevented the army of Judah -even with The Lord’s backing- from defeating the men of the plains.

LOCATION: Nuevo Laredo, Mexico
POWERS: Autopathy. He can talk to cars.

In the style of Drub.

DAY ONE: Lookness. The Scottish Chameleon

| November 1, 2012 | 2 Comments

Today begins the 30 Characters Challenge, and I’m terrified because I have not laid ink on paper in a very long time past ridiculous doodles of dogs farting and.. no, that’s been about it. I do this with the hope that by the end of 30 days I will have much better control and design skills. Judging by entry number one, I can only go up.

I will not, however, stop making bad puns with superhero names.

NAME: Lookness
LOCATION: Glasgow, Scotland
POWERS: Lookness can psychically disguise herself to appear like anyone she wants. She is a low-level receptive telepath who can pull images from a target’s mind and camouflage herself with the likeness of a friend or family member. This is more reflexive than under her control.
