Day 6- The Shield Bearer

30 characters  6 shield bearer ready

 

From the Isle of Avalon, the mysterious Shield Bearer appears during times of battle to stand next to the king offering protection. Armed with two mystic shields, she can deflect hammers, broadswords, missiles, and even cannnon fire! But the shields are not just defensive. Swinging them at foes, these shields of mystic energy are thin- capable of chopping or slicing like any contemporary weapon would be expected to do. When the battle is over, the Shield Bearer disappears as quietly as she first appeared. Rumors have it she was last seen several times across Europe during WWII and is believed to have been captured in the background of a photo that shows her at the door of Winston Churchill’s house on Downing Street. Other reports have her helping a young woman across the Russian wilderness in 1918…

Star Crasher is a hi-speed multi-system wanderer, capable of blowing his way through a star (or planet for that matter- which makes him a threat to anyone who knows what he can do!). He is making his way from system to system looking for any evidence of what happened to the Scarlett Legion- the unit he was assigned to when they were attacked. During the battle he was knocked unconscious and has no memory of who attacked and what happened.

#5 – Darren

| November 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

Darren doesn’t talk much. Truth be told, he thinks he doesn’t need to either. He’ll answer questions about his t-shirts, though. Darren lives next door to Adrian with his older brother and can often be found hanging out with his guitar and his three cats.

#4: M.O.M.

| November 4, 2011 | 1 Comment

M.O.M. stands for “Mind Over Matter”. M.O.M. is the worlds most powerful telekinetic superhero. Because he is so powerful, he really doesn’t care that his name spells out “Mom”, and villains fear his power too much to laugh at him. Because of his power, he also doesn’t care about his weight, as he really doesn’t need to be in shape to do anything that needs to be done. Even though none of his arch enemies have been able to best him, his obesity may be his true worst enemy that will finally do him in.

2011 Challenger: Dom Gazzuolo

| October 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

A year ago I wrote a comic book related post everyday (unpaid) on my blog titled, 365 Days of Comics. It was an interesting experienced during which I learned a few things about myself. I mainly learned that I’m a huge idiot.

Every day…what was I thinking? There were some days I had to fight time, Crank-style, just to get to on a computer and write a parody of “You Down With O.P.P.” about B.K.V. (Brian K. Vaughan), so that I would not miss a day. At the time it seemed important, but looking back I see that I was, in fact, a huge idiot. It wore on my mind and made me overly stressed about something that held no real significance.

Have you ever served at a busy restaurant? Some nights are so stressful that when you go home and get to sleep you have nightmares about stupid things like forgetting to get a refill on someone’s water or bringing over an extra ramekin of potsticker sauce (P.F. Chang’S). You would wake up and have to calm yourself by grabbing your hello kitty stuffed dolls close and remind yourself that it’s over, it doesn’t matter anymore…you’re safe. Stressing over if I was going to be able to write a thoughtful post everyday is a lot like stressing over if I brought extra lemon for a big spender’s water, the previous night. It’s over. It doesn’t matter anymore. I’m safe. Or so I thought…

When I saw this challenge to come up with 30 characters in 30 days my first reaction was, “no, not again!” But after a nice long cry in the shower, I began to think, “30 days…is that all?” There was something about those tears in the shower that turned me into one cocky bastard when it comes to anything that doesn’t challenge me for 365 days.

  • 117 days without sunlight…pssh! My sunglasses are broken anyway!
  • 238 dys of not being ble to use the letter “A”…hh, I lugh t the chllenge!
  • 7 days without BK. Okay…that’s different. I’m no savage. (Have it your way!)

30 days of anything…bring it on!

2011 Challenger: Harold C. Jennett III

| October 21, 2011 | 2 Comments

Hi!

I did this challenge last year, and dropped out about 1/3 of the way through. It wasn’t a total washout though, as it gave me some characters I’m using for my upcoming OGN.

My previous work is all indie stuff: M.I.M.E.S., Geek Syndicate: The Comic, and Creative Compassion: Shelter, a black and white anthology I’m putting together to raise money for the homeless. My future project will be an original graphic novel titled “Good Night Captain Might”. It’s a mixture of “Astro City” and a Bruce Timm cartoon. It is being c0-written by the amazing Steeven Orr. You can check out his writing HERE.

You can check out my art at haroldjennett.wordpress.com Here are a few examples of my work (both featuring “Shadow Fox”, a character I created in last years “30 Character Challenge”):
