The Saga Continues....

Hey guys!

So I am hard at work with the script of Heroes Rebored #2. But i thought i would take a break to show you all some of what we have come up with so far. The second issue of Heroes Rebored will focus on the ladies of Kirby City. In it we meet Shriek the sonic scream powered superhero.

Shriek is based on my sister so her look was pretty easy to come up with. I threw in a domino mask and I wanted a hooded look. I was thinking about Rogue in the first X-Men movie but i wasn’t really sure where i wanted to go with her. All I knew was that she was in the vain of the old Luke Cage comics from the 1970's.

Charlie took my desing (excuse my 9 year old drawing ability) and made her more urban and conteporary. I really love her look it reminded me of graphitti art I see sometimes.

Now comes Brainy Girl, my favorite character of the bunch. Brainy is just one of those characters that comes to you in the middle of the night that is so vivid that you have to put it to paper. I did this sketch in the middle of the night.

I fell in love with Charlie when he gave this back to me. Just for the x-ray specks i wanted to dry hump him. Hes lucky he lives so far away. I love what he's done with her, its very Mike Allred. I could see Brainy Girl making an appearance in a Madman comic.

Nike is actually a old superhero character I came up with a few years ago when i was brainstorming what eventually became Dead Gods with Juan Lapaix. She was very influenced by the anime series Slayers. She is the Greek goddess of sports, so she has super speed mostly. In mythology she looks like an angel so she has wings but I went against that and as a nod I wanted her goggles to have wings on them.

Charlie gave her the white hair which I thought was a great touch. My only directions in the body types of the women was that I didn't want bad anatomy or cheese cake. At least not for the main characters. I also left up the colors to him which was great because the colors he choose were awesome.

Now here’s the plot so far...

Heroes Rebored #2 focuses on the female heroes of Kirby City, specifically Shriek and her friends Nike and Brainy Girl. Shriek is about to go out on her first date in almost 2 years you see her problem is that her power sonic voice wreaks her love life. Can she get a handle on her powers? Will Nike be sued by the Nike Corporation for copyright infringement? Will any of Brainy's inventions work? Find out in the latest issue of Heroes Rebored!.
