Clobber! Vance: Sinking Ships

Clobber! Vance is a comic about failure. It was done in a time when I’d just found myself a solo comic creator. I wanted to prove that i could do all the work myself & i think technically i did do that.

I came up with some good ideas, wrote a few catchy lines & even drew some great scenes both intimate & action packed. There are golden nuggets of amazing in this comic but it has a tinge of bitter in it. I was in a bad place when working on most of this & i think it shows.

Take a look for yourself and please leave a comment below telling me if you think I ruined some great ideas.

    Thanks Miaozi! All 108 pages of Clobber are up right now. I do plan on continuing the story soon. I have two more project lined up before that though.

    should it finally arrive, I’ll read the continuation. Some people may like this ending but i do not. Really, I’m not against killing your main character.But to do so in the end is cheap. Far from seriously worth paying for.

    Wallet; Thanks… i think. First i want to say i appreciate you coming to the site & reading one of my comics. Cool. Secondly i dig the fact that you told me you honest opinion. I don’t get that very much. Clobber could have been better. It was a learning experience for me & was done out of bitterness & frustration instead of love & creativity. The next book will be better. I owe these characters & you few readers a better ending.

      This is good – God could have been any of them, but love is god so god is love. that was a great idea. Great comic. Thanks for sharing this will us. Have you tried to get it published anywhere yet?

    I give you so much credit for such a piece of art on behalf of all of us who have tried and failed at making our own comic. Credit
