Blotchmen

Man, what a great weekend! This was my fifth 24 hour comic day event, and it definitely went the smoothest. Most of that was due to working smaller and having more time each hour to walk around, eat food, and sprint around the building.

Anyway, here's my comic for this year. For reasons that will become clear when you read it, it was important to colorize this one.

The original intent of the story was to be a Watchmen parody, but it ended up being more of a parody of a few of my favorite children's books. Although, while not intentional, you could make a case for Harold = Dr. Manhattan, and Max = Veidt.

Hey, would mind if I made a Facebook Fan Page on Blotchmen? If you do, I can quickly delete it (or give you admin control over it).

Science fiction website io9.com also posted a link to your work, which, by the by, is awesome.
