VOORT! A Close Encounter with the Hendecalons!

The Hendecalons are an alien race with one pyramidal eye, capable of turning people into abstractions with a single VOORT. Here are thumbnails from a scene in Project: Hendecalon where Captain X experiences the partial effects of the Hendecalons' heinous power.

Good vs. Evil

Although Project: Hendecalon is not a team book like a collection of Marvel's "X-Men," I thought it would be fun to sort out exactly who are the Good Guys and who are the Bad Guys. The story is basically a simple tale of good vs. evil, told in the genre of science-fiction. So, here's how the characters stack up . . .
THE GOOD GUYS (L to R): The Great Spirit, Agent Y, Captain X, and Franklin.
THE BAD GUYS (L to R): Supremalon, Hendecalon, Unknown (Winged Creature), Unknown (Pyramid on Pedestal), Hendecalon, Supremalon.

Here are the kids who are central to the graphic novel:
Lastly, I would like to show you some of my attempts at thumbnailing and pacing. Below you can see about twelve of the first eighteen pages--how the panels will flow and which pages will face each other. It probably only makes total sense to me, but I can't give away the story just yet!!!

Hendecalon Test Panels

First of all, I want to express a hearty "thank you" to everyone who is following this blog! I really appreciate your readership, and I hope to provide you with things that are interesting to read and view.
Here are some thumbnails and test panels for Project: Hendecalon. Hopefully, it will give an idea of what the finished product will look like. You can see how things change from the thumbnailing stage to finished piece.
Here is a thumbnailed strip:
Here is the more finished version:
Let me know what you like, and what I might improve upon.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man!

Here's a quick cartoon of Spider-Man that I did when I was down at SCAD-Atlanta last Friday. It may show up on the Temple of Cartoon Mojo blog if I'm lucky.
