Once Upon the 1990's, a demented 7th grader forged a horrid, cliched, comic series in the depths of her twisted imagination. In 2014, revision begins...
These characters are remakes of the same characters from my magnum opus I made when I was 13. (5 Forces) That bizarre piece with the flag that you see is a picture of my original characters, circa 1995/ 1996. The two at the sides are supporting characters. The main group is in the middle. The ominous eyes belong to the villain, of course! They are on an airship. I kind of "marketed" the comic as a fantasy, but it was more steampunk with trains, zeppelins, technology, inventions, and some steampunk style. I just didn't know there was a word for that genre back then!
Guy with the glasses= Frap, Force of Time
Green Girl= Lori, Force of Nature
Little kid= Juli, Force of Water
Buxom Princess next to the flag= Princess Sara, Force of Fire
Guy with Bandana= Dominick Van Baron, who was supposed to be an attractive antihero. Because turning your head and neck around at impossible angles is very appealing.
Kid with raccoon hat= Nik, Force of Weather
The fun part about this project is that found all the old comics (8.5 volumes tied together with shoelaces and various string-like oddities), so I get to compare my storytelling and art approaches. And try to understand what the hell was going through my mind back then. Seriously, so many WTF moments. Crappy as the comic is, it's still fun to read and unintentional lulz abound. I decided to revisit the story, revise it, and remake the characters. And hopefully, for the fans of the "originals" (lol), a re-re-re-re-release is in the future, accompanied with comparative notes and some hilarious scans of the originals.*

*I'm hoping to start updating the comic sometime in August or September, but I won't start that until I finish some work on Geode Corner (in progress!) and get that story updating regularly again.
