Hello, hello, everyone! Today I wanted to change focus a little bit to perhaps the most acclaimed webcomic I've done aside Warlord: Alfred Gomez' Clown, Rogue Assassin.
What's interesting about Clown, is that he was created by my best friend, Alfred Gomez, as well as many side characters in Warlord. He decided to gift me these characters to do what I wanted with them and thought they would definitely compliment the Warlord universe. I can't imagine Warlord without Fatfish, the Bloody Brothers (minus Deathmate, Massacre, and Akuma), nor Clown.
When I got Clown, the first thing I thought was he would be an amazing compliment to Funnybone. And one day Alfred and I got together and brainstormed a story with him, Fatfish, and Funnybone to be able to introduce him into the TMW mythos. And thus, "Clown, Rogue Assassin" was born.
Whenever Fatfish is around, you know there is going to be a story of betrayal, love lost, revenge, and of course, a lot of action! Clown has some of my favorite action scenes I've done and that I'm about to make. That opening in chapter one was the most action packed opening I've ever had. A shoot out on high speed motorcycles, what else could you ask for?
The cast is definitely unique from stuff I usually draw or write, so it's a great challenge for me as a creator. This mini series is almost midway through chapter 2, which is midway through the 4 chapter mini series. My goal is to finish this mini FINALLY by summer time.
The script of course was written way before I had started drawing it. It has been thumbnailed all the way through chapter 4. All the character designs have been nailed. It's just a matter of continuing work on it.
This is somewhat of a prequel to Warlord, since some characters from the first four chapters make appearances and of course Funnybone is still working for Fatfish, but at the same time you don't need to read Warlord to read Clown. It also sets up events that happened in chapters 3 & 4, and later in chapter 12 of Warlord, as well as lay the groundwork work for "Funnybone: Rage of the Lucky 13", so it is definitey an important part of the TMW universe of characters and stories. I have been having a blast (many times literally on the pages!) with this mini, and I hope you all continue to enjoy it, and if you're new to it, I hope you're entertained by it. Of course, you can read Clown (as well as all other webcomics) right here on Truthful Comics or the mirror site on The Duck Webcomic www.theduckwebcomics.com/Clown/
