That's a very interesting blog, Dr. Mike!  The inter-connectivity of relationships in teams and how they differ from a comic with a single, titular character is a very interesting subject, and I found it funny and neat that you pointed out that groups of three typically deal with the "weird" stuff and groups of four are very family orientated.  I never noticed that, before.

Also, this is really nerdy, but I really liked the little formula that you had about the number of relationships in a group. :P

Haha! Well, you know, me and maths are like this *twists fingers together*
I forgot to point out that to write the Legion of Superheroes fully with 30 members, you'd need to write 435 conversations!

Yeah, I was surprised by the threes and fours. I wasn't really looking for that, but when I added the Ghostbusters as a trio it really popped out. Teams of three are always "scientists of the strange"

Flying Solo - this week I talk a bit about solo stories, and give in to my base urges and wax lyrical about how great Doom Patrol was.

Watch this space for actual comics!

I've got a short story featuring Venus Green coming out this week on a friend's Tumblr, and another seven pages of Universe Gun to go up next weekend!


 
So yeah, see you in seven! (or maybe five? :) )

Aww, thanks, Alex!

I started the blog just so I'd have something to post between updates to the comic, since they're 8 weeks apart. I honestly thought I'd have run out of things to talk about by now, but no such luck. :)

Last week, I discussed Computational Substrate - how computers work today and what they might do in a sci-fi future!

This week, I take a look at continuity, brought on in part by my contribution to the relaunch of Australia's Southern Squadron with this pinup.

Issue 3 is finished!
And this is what it looks like (if I remove lettering and only show one panel per page!



Come back next week for the final chapter of issue 2. I'll finally get down to the serious superhero business of running around in underwear whilst punching robots and buildings in two!

Last week's blog: the first in a series discussing Alternative Superheroes, and the original alternative hero Wonder Woman and her legacy.

This week: Wonder Twins - my thoughts on diversity and a bit of physics as I put Star Girl 3000 and Coriolis Boy under the microscope.

Both feature images from the Inktober challenge - I'm producing and posting an ink drawing every day this month! You can follow me on drmike2000comics.tumblr.com , or www.facebook.com/DrMike2000

Love your art style. I finally got your mod (I'm a slowpoke, what can I say? I still haven't even owned a game system newer than the Gamecube) and spent more of the time looking at your works on your site. Love the specific inspiration. Your one of the people I've run across and I mean this authentically that any comic company publishing right now is at a loss for not having found you into their bullpen as are the readers. I'll take this over at least half of the stuff in print right now. It's fetching and breathes most importantly rather than just being representation and therefore 2-dimensional.

Aww, thanks, Ant! That means a lot to me.
Yeah, I feel like its just hitting its stride now with the published pages (I'm always surfing 21 pages ahead of you) mainly because I've got the team together and interacting now, and that's always been one of my favourite things. Set up the big cosmic scenarios, but then watch people still act like people while facing it.

Anyway, today's blog, celebrating a year of writing these blogs and publishing artwork and so on, is all about classical music, highbrow vs lowbrow culture, and the movies of Ken Russell!

Amazing Infographics!

A behind the scenes look at the back pages I created for printed copies of Universe Gun - now up at www.fundamentzero.com



Yes, printed copies! As you can see, I'm as surprised as you are! I've run up a small batch for the local convention circuit this year.
