I've started reading a few books that show the process of making comics in the hope of one day making my own. Creating a memorable character that connects with the reader is a big part of the process and one that I have been attempting over the past few days. One book put an exercise forward to create a character for one of the four seasons. It went deeper, explaining that the picture should say a whole lot more...like where they come from, what type of person they are and what sort of background they have. Hopefully you can conjure up a small story just by looking at this man.

Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang are my heroes. These characters and their daily dilemmas have managed to remain as relevant in the 1950's as they are today. But since the 1950's, these Peanuts characters haven't grown an inch, which led me to ask the question..."what would these kids look like grown up?" By grown up I mean adolescent punk rockers! So after hours of contemplation I inked Charlie Brown as the punk kid he would probably be today.

I think everyone can relate to having their heart broken at some point in their life. I'm not sure how many people have experienced this heartbreak from a superhero, but this unwitting bank robber is feeling just that. Lady Super-Love has cast her spell on him and is about to bust his gonads! All he can think of is how beautiful she looks as she leaps through the air, leaving a trail of the finest perfume known to man.
