Good evening all! Hope you're all doing great. I just wanted to write a blog about a story that's just plain fun to me. Funnybone: Rage of the Lucky 13. I have 2 of the short stories out already on my Patreon, and the scripts are all done, I just need to keep adapting them into short story format.
I will continue to post these on my Patreon for the $1 tier, and when I reach the end, I will collect it into one volume and sell them physically and digitally, making it available to my Patrons, of course.
Funnybone of course is one of the most popular characters in Warlord and it serves both as a spinoff of Warlord and as a spiritual sequel to Clown: Rogue Assassin.
What I love about this story is that so far it is the grittiest story I've written and is a throwback, love letter to chessy 80s action movies and The Street Fighter movie from the 70s with one of my favorite action stars, Sonny Chiba.
Funnybone lost a lot in his life and his mind is not all together there, all he knows is how to move forward. With bloody revenge. These short stories are a departure from how I usually write since these are prose short stories rather than a comic book form with the art telling most of the story, which to me has been a very nice change of pace and good practice to do longer form prose.
My goal for 2021 is to not only finish posting the shorts on Patreon and then selling a whole volume physical and digital, but I will be adapting it into a 6 chapter webcomic mini series, slated to be sold as a comic as well.
Funnybone is a character that aside from Warlord, is my favorite to write. He is my Rurouni Kenshin if he embraced his man killer ways after Tomoe's death rather than be a peaceful wanderer in her honor.
This is one of the most fun stories I've ever done and I can't wait to illustrate this later on, my target date for the adaptation should be either late 2022 or early 2023.
In any event, thank you all for reading, catch you all next blog, stay safe, and if you want to check my Patreon, it's here, theres also A LOT of free content there!
