First off, let's talk about the Warlords of Wor mini comics! The plan as we move forward is to take WoW to factory production, and these factory-produced versions of the toys will include 8-page mini comics to help tell the stories of our heroes and nasties. The first two minis are completely finished, and Eric and I have almost completed the next 6 scripts already! For my convention appearances this year I printed the first two minis in a full size flip book with additional pinups by some incredibly talented artists. Issue one, The Mutant Muck Menace, features artwork by Cory Hamscher (Supreme, Avengers Academy) and colors by Sean Forney (Scarlet Huntress), with a cover by Tim Seeley (Revival, Witchblade, Hack/Slash) and Sean Forney.
Issue 2, Ghosts of Tohoco, boasts interior art by Brian Level (The Brothers James), and a cover by Tim Seeley and Lisa Moore (Adventure Time).
In addition to the two action-packed tales, the book features pinups by Steve Seeley (Hoax Hunters), Jenny Frison (Revival), Ramon Villalobos (LP), Brian Level, Chris Faccone (Savage Conquest) and Dave Crosland (Scarface: Scarred for Life). If you were lucky enough to snag a copy at C2E2 or HeroesCon, congrats!! My next stop is PowerCon in Torrance, CA on Sept 14-15. If you're going to be there please stop by and say hello! I will be making a very limited number of these print comics available in the store very soon, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter for that announcement. The book will also be available soon as a digital download, so keep an eye out for that news as well.
The last thing I want to share with everyone are some photos of the all-new Clawbber toy!!!!
The second character to be featured in the Warlords of Wor line, Clawbber is the Two-Fisted General of Justice, and the line's debut hero! A noble warrior and brilliant tactician, Clawbber leads the Worian Guard into battle alongside Maxxor and the rest of the Warlords of Wor.
Seen below are some test shots of my first color tests. The final looks a bit different, and I'll have more photos of him soon along with info on how you can add him to your collection! But for now, here he is!!
Just like Bog-Nar, Clawbber features 10 points of fully interchangeable magnetic articulation and is compatible with ALL ManOrMonster? Studios toys!
UN-like Bog-Nar, Clawbber will not come with a set of Build-a-Figure parts. In order to better manage my costs and production time, I have decided to discontinue the BAF element. But fear not!! Dekay will still be available as a FREE mail away exclusive for those of you that collect all 7 basic figure releases... so you're still going to get Dekay, now just all at once instead of piece by piece.
Well, I think that just about does it for me tonight! I'll have some cool new updates soon regarding order info for Clawbber, the comic book, and maybe a surprise or two. Stay tuned!!
Until next time, loyal Wor-heads!
