The Waiting is the Hardest Part

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I would like to present a rare moment of self-restraint from Vic Waters, aka Justice.


Speaking of waiting…the wait is almost up for issue 2! I’ll be staring the last page tomorrow and hopefully have everything wrapped up by next weekend. Huzzah!

Thanks for reading!




The Many Faces of Justice

Drawing is fun! Mostly. Unless you’re drawing feet. Feet are the worst. Fortunately, Brent wrote most of the script without closeup shots of feet, so I lucked out.  He also filled the script with lots of sweet, sweet opportunity when it comes to illustrating my favorite fictional pal, Vic Waters (aka Justice). Vic has a face that was made for comics! Literally! Here’s a few of my favorite images of Justice (so far):

Woozy –


Shocked (he makes this face a lot) –


What I can only describe as a “YEESH!” face –


The obligatory Sad face. Sad! –


And a Happy face! –


Ha Ha Just kidding! Vic is never truly happy. Since he can’t turn that frown upside down, I did it for him 😉

Thanks for reading! If you keep stopping by, I’ll keep making faces!


Getting Motivated with Justice

Just look at Justice, all locked and loaded and ready to get down to business.


I finished this panel late last week, and upon reflection it kind of looks like a motivational poster. You know, the kind where there’s a picture of something majestic like a whale jumping over a rainbow, and underneath there’s a single large word in white like “PERSPIRATION” followed by a super smart-sounding quote. Just Google “Motivational Poster” and you’ll get the idea. I’ll wait.

Long story short, I decided to make my own poster.


I’m not sure how motivational it is, but it sure was a great use of my time. I promise I’ll get this comic done soon. Promise!

Onward! And thanks for reading!



Seems like I’m posting a lot of Larry, eh? Brent wrote a character that I’m having a lot of fun illustrating, and for that I am thankful 🙂

P.S. Brent please write more Larry, thx

Anywho, here’s a fun panel where Larry is dropping some angry knowledge on Justice:


But what else is on Larry’s mind? What if he had no inner monologue? It might go something like this:




or maybe:


or quite possibly:


That last one is a genuine truth bomb! Thanks, Larry!

And thank you for reading!




WIP Update: Larry’s Occult Emporium & Gifts

I realized today that I never posted the finished storefront for Larry’s Occult Emporium & Gifts. Let’s take it from the top, from the reference photo to the finished drawing.

So, without further ado…






…and that’s how the sausage is made!

Thanks for reading!


Meet Crazy Larry

This is Crazy Larry. Is he about to deliver an atomic bear hug? Maybe he’s about to tell you a big fish story. Or could he be showing you what a pretty, pretty bird he is? You decide.


Justice has a history with Crazy Larry, kind of a love/hate thing. Like, he loves to hate Larry. BUT…Larry runs a pretty sweet Occult Emporium (& GIFTS!), and he is occasionally useful, so Justice tolerates him when he has to.

Seriously though, who couldn’t love a face like that?

I think I need to turn this into a bumper sticker. It calls to me 🙂

Thanks for reading!


Justice Is Angry At Me

It’s like I stole his lunch money or something. Or maybe it’s because I haven’t visited the ol’ drawing board in a week or two :-O  Either way, this is the first thing that I came up with this morning —


I think my brain is trying to tell me something. Something something work more something.

Justice’s stare even scared me into doing a color version —


Yeesh. I get it, man. Stop staring already! I’m getting back to work!

Thanks for reading!


WIP: Larry’s Occult Emporium & Gifts

Work in progress time! This is from Twisted Tales of Two-Fisted Justice, Issue 2, Page 8.




I based Larry’s shop on the now-defunct House of Adam men’s fashion store in downtown Cincinnati. I need to fill the windows with all of Larry’s unique knick-knacks, not to mention adding Justice’s ugly mug somewhere in the shot. I think this location will pop up quite a bit in future TToTFJ, so I’m trying to make it memorable. Brent created a pretty great character in Larry and I’m just trying to do him justice…pun intended! hey-O!

I’ll post the finished shot when I have all of the floating eyeballs, Cosmic Werewolves and cuddly teddy bears added to the scene. For now…back to work! I pencilled two pages today, which is an amazing achievement that needs to be commemorated with some sort of engraved plaque 😉 Progress, ho!

Thanks for reading!


Airlock – Work in Progress 3

Hello, my name is Brandon and I am bad at blogging and social media.

Seriously though, it has been far too long between posts, and I aim to rectify this situation. Let’s get started with another update on Airlock!

Here’s a closeup of the mystery spaceman…

Airlock Spaceman

…and here’s a doodad showing what he looks like under the helmet. This part is an ID card of sorts that needs some more lettering…

Airlock ID

…and here’s the whole can of worms. Pay no attention to the left side.

Space Unicorns

Picture this: a panoramic comic that is folded to reveal only certain elements as you go. That’s what the goal is here. Imagine that the left half (the one full of Space Unicorns) is folded behind the right half, which is then folded in half with the top behind the bottom, which is then folded in half like a wee book. Believe it or not, Mr. Spaceman will appear on the front of the “book” and will act as a sort of self-cover. Boom. Easy, right? 😉

There’s still lots to complete here, and a few other things that I’m intentionally hiding so as not to spoil the story, but it’s coming along nicely and should be done in the foreseeable future. If anything, this comic has taught me one important lesson: NEVER. EVER. EVER. COLOR MY OWN COMIC. AGAIN. EVER. :-O

In other news, Brent delivered an awesome script to me for the second issue of Twisted Tales of Two-Fisted Justice. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve received it and I am a giant slacker. On the plus side, I’ve started sketching out the pages and Brent has given me some truly epic scenes to illustrate.

TToTFJ Sketch Issue 2

Super excited!

That’s all for now…thanks for reading!
