  1. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Hey, folks! I'm still working on getting my website updated, AND I won't have a new update next week while I'm in San Antonio, so here's this week's comic AND some delicious recipes for Heroes of C.R.A.S.H. milkshakes! Not much to say about today's comic, except that some of the dialogue about feelings was inspired by a book I had as a child about sticking up for yourself. It's important to recognize that feelings aren't good or bad in and of themselves; they just need to be dealt with in a healthy way. I'd previously thought of trying to turn HoC into either an ice cream flavor or some sort of cereal (After all, my comic is based on Saturday morning cartoons, and what goes better with them than cereal?). But when Jessi Sheron, creator of the webcomic The Sea in You (Check my Links page!), started the #MakeYourComicADrink hashtag on Twitter, I thought of what to do with my comic. I had considered some sort of float, soda combination, or hot chocolate mix, but then Jessi suggested I do a milkshake. Brilliant! I could take my ideas for HoC ice cream flavors, and make them milkshakes, which are WAY easier to make! So here's three recipes based on my main three heroes! I have some ideas for other recipes for my other heroes as well, but these three seem like an ideal place to start. Give them a try and let me know how you like them! #webcomic #webcomics #comic #comics #superhero #superheroes #superheroine #superheroines #milkshake #milkshakes
  2. http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com I was pleased to get quite a few great entries for my annual Birthday Fan Art Contest this year! I have to admit; I was a little suprised to see the winning entry on the last day of the contest, and from a newcomer, no less! But his entry not only showcased some great art, but it captured Belt Boy's personality. Belt Boy would TOTALLY post a villain capture to social media with puns, emojis, and hashtags! Thanks again, MaroonDrops; for winning my contest, you get to choose the next desktop wallpaper that I draw! Congratulations! I also want to thank the other entrants this year. Due to some continued technical difficulties (my computer tends to freeze off and on during the summer months), I'm still working on the sketch prizes for the runners-up. I've got two down, two to go, so please be patient, folks! Enough about that, though; time to show off the other entries! David Fleming, creator of the totally awesome webcomic Ms. Rocket, drew this picture of Titanium Maiden striking a pose, proving that if anyone knows how to draw a buff, reheaded superheroine with a ponytail, it's him (He's had practice in that very specific category, after all!). Shaney, creator of the webcomic Heroes of the World Beyond (Or HOTWAB for short), drew Belt Boy and his faithful flying fish friend, Caped Cod. I don't see many drawings of BB's piscatory pal, so this was nice to see. Previous winner CD Rudd, creator of the webcomic SailorSun Dot Org, drew his characters and mine attending some sort of gala event. Wouldn't be the first time he's drawn my heroes in formalwear, since they cameoed in the big wedding scene that concluded his comic. And of course, it wouldn't be the annual birthday contest without an entry from longtime fan YouWillNeverKnow, who created some iconic movie posters based on my heroes' costumes. Has any other artist graced my Fan Art page as often? Guess I will never know! Unless I go to the Fan Art page and count, of course. But I don't want to. If you liked these pictures, be sure to visit David, Shaney, and CD Rudd's webcomics! All three of them are in webcomic communities alongside The Heroes Of C.R.A.S.H.; Ms. Rocket and HOTWAB are part of the Collective of Heroes, and SailorSun is part of the 910CMX community.
  3. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Sorry, folks, but I don’t have a new strip today. My computer has been running low on disk space, and it won’t let me even SAVE a new comic. I tried deleting a bunch of things after doing some backups, but it didn’t make much of a dent. I also couldn’t expand my C drive either. So I’m going to try to buy an external hard drive in the next few days (I have one for backups, but I’m looking to get one that would remain attached to my computer to expand the disk space). The only reason I didn’t get one sooner is because I also had to get some car repairs done this week. Hoo boy, when it rains…! I’m hoping to get things fixed before I need to post the results for my annual Birthday Fan Art Contest. With any luck, I may even be able to fix things in the next week. If, for any reason, I’m unable to fix things, I will post the winning contest entries on social media (along with all runners-up) and contact their artists, personally. So if you’re still planning on entering, please do so! To be honest, some fan art would certainly cheer me up about now!
  4. Comic 5/4/19 - Blueberried Secrets

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Starting off with a good old-fashioned recap! It's been a while since I started a storyline with a recap (or started a new storyline at all). The events of our last adventure set up this one so well, I felt that a recap was needed. Plus, the Collective of Heroes is doing a promotion for Free Comic Book Day, and a recap might be helpful for any new readers. But mostly I did this recap because I'd heard there was going to be lightning storms this week and I wanted something that could be drawn relatively quickly (of course, the storms never came). I like the gradient in the background and the layout of the panels. In addition to padding out the image a bit, the gradient gives the strip a foreboding atmosphere while the panels emphasize the two sides to this story. Don't forget to submit an entry to my contest by my birthday on May 19th! EVERY valid entry gets something in return, so read the full rules on my site!
  5. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com The title card for the latest storyline! Since it's merely a title card, there's not too much I can say, as I don't want to spoil anything. All I will say is that I was originally going to call it Confessions Parts 1 and 2, named after the Usher songs of the same name (which I'm only aware of because of Weird Al's Confessions Part 3). Also, don't forget that my birthday is next month, and I want some fan art! I've gotten two submissions to my contest, both in the Traditional category. If you want to send me something, you have until May 19th. Don't forget; EVERYONE who sends me a valid entry gets some art in return!
  6. 4/20/19 - Tying Up Some Loose Ends

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Looks like everyone's being taken care of... right? I'm sure someone will take care of Miss Sunflower soon enough. After all the trouble she caused, she deserves to have an itchy nose for a while. Dodge tried lecturing Gelatin Boy about being too dependant in the Gym Nauseum storyline, and he tried leaving him alone in this story. Looks like he's finally ready to have an actual dialogue with his friend to solve the problem. B.O.N.N.I.E. was originally going to have a different reaction in panel 3, but it didn't look quite right with her being drawn so tiny and with straight lines. I decided to do a little nod to Scott Pilgrim and allow the digital damsel to make a shocked face made from a semicolon and lowercase "o". Seems appropriate for an A.I. on a screen, no? Don't forget, you have less than a month to enter my #birthday #fanart#contest! I want some fan art for my birthday; all you need to do is draw one (or more) of my characters or make a video game avatar based on them. All valid entries get a prize - it may be a sketch, or it may be something better...! Check out TheHeroesOfCRASH.com and click on the button on the main page for the full rules!
  7. Comic 3/23/19 - In Over Her Head

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Enticia gets some surprising support, Ken Bailey sends some fan art that's NOT for my contest, and I restate the rules for anyone who WILL enter. Also, my internet's back! Whew, that's a lot to unpack in a Twitter-friendly blurb... Let's take it from the top. Due to some local internet outages, I was not able to update my site until I got it back this afternoon. Thankfully, I was able to post a picture of the latest comic (Taken from my camera's phone), as well as the other pictures below. Remember, folks, if my site hasn't updated, and I didn't announce it beforehand, check my Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook posts; I'll usually be able to fill you in there. In this week's strip, Enticia recognizes what she's learned from her friends and from Dino-Mo. When Enticia says that Cannon made her realize her relationships have been hollow, she's referring to their discussion WAY back in strip 232. Belt Boy and TM have gained her trust slowly, but listening to her backstory throughout the Even a Rose Has its Thorns story certainly helped. Dino-Mo, of course, told Enticia off in the Gym-Nauseum storyline. I do like getting experimental with the format of my comics, and I like how I set up the three-part panel in the upper-right, turning the connections between word balloons into panel gutters. That was actually pretty fun! In other news (But not NEW news if you've been keeping up with my Facebook group!), I got some fan art that is NOT a submission for my annual Birthday Fan Art Contest that's currently going on right now. Why? Because the fan art in question happens to be from Ken Baily, who won last year with his awesome picture of Titanium Maiden alongside his own creation, EnergyGirl. However, the rules state that someone can't win in the same category for two years in a row, so unless he did something in the Generated Fan Art category, anything he submitted would be ineligible. But knowing that, he still decided to draw TM and E-Girl again for funsies, and because it IS for my (and my comic's) birthday. Thanks again, Ken! If YOU want to enter my contest, check out my website for the full rules! Ken got to pick the next HoC desktop wallpaper, and you could do the same this year! Even if you don't win, all valid entries get some art in return, making it a bit like an art trade as well as a contest. Good luck!
  8. 3/16/19 - Truth and Consequences

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Enticia declares that she's ready to face the music. I have to admit, outside of my main three, Enticia may be my favorite character. Quite a few of my characters have been based on aspects of myself and people I know, but Enticia's been sort of her own entity. She's grown and evolved as a character in ways I never predicted, whether it's on-screen or behind the scenes. Today's strip certainly marks a turning point for Enticia, but it hardly marks the end of her personal character development arc. I have big plans for Enticia in the future...! I typically prefer my comics to have a bit more comedy than drama. If my strip were a cartoon, we'd be coming to the "learning a lesson" part of the episode near the end, so it's a smidgeon more drama-heavy as of late. Still, it's not devoid of comedy; I think that having Unk carrying a grumbling, hog-tied Jackknife over is shoulder is pretty funny-looking. A side note: "Mr. Hellinger's Hardware" mentioned in the first panel gets its name from Hechinger - a hardware store chain that had a store near me when I was a kid - but with the "Heck" syllable changed into its more cussword-sounding form. This is about as close to swearing as my strip will ever get. Also, I was originally going to call the store "Mr. Hellinger's Tools 'n' Stuff", but it didn't fit as neatly in the word balloon, and I hate to miss an opportunity to use alliteration. DON'T FORGET: There's still two months left in my contest! Everyone who submits a valid entry will win some art in return, so get to drawing! Or avatar-building!
  9. 3/9/19 - Not-So-Visual Gag

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Belt Boy thanks his friends (and Jackknife). Unfortunately, he's still a little down. While he's willing to dust himself off and try again, that doesn't change the fact that he feels like he let his friends down. My comic may be based on Saturday Morning Cartoons, where most character's struggles can be solved in a half hour, but don't expect my characters' problems to have a quick fix. I was going to do a different pun with the title... I was thinking of combining Jackknife's name with the phrase "Gag me with a spoon", but "Gag me with a knife" sounds disturbing. Yeesh. Anyway, just as Belt Boy has thanked his friends, I'll be more than happy to thank you for entering my contest by giving you some free art! Check out my website for the full rules in order to submit a valid entry. Good luck!
  10. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Cannon helps Belt Boy and volunteers for the lesser of two annoyances. It might seem strange that Cannon would rather deal with B.O.N.N.I.E.'s emotions than his own. Cannon's perfectly fine about being brutally honest with others, and he's usually not shy about expressing himself, but it's way harder for him to be honest and expressive when it leaves him vulnerable. In fact, that's such a key component of his personality, I made it part of his character design: a thin, gangly frame protected by bulky armor. Belt Boy and Cannon do have a little bit of a bromance; I tried to sell that a bit more in the previous comic's last panel and moreso in this comic's first panel. Despite what he says, we know that it's Cannon who's jealous of TM, and not the other way around. Have you entered my #contest yet, by the way?
  11. http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Our characters hint at some long-awaited backstory finally being explained! While looking up my comic on the "TV Tropes" website, it described the event(s) that led to Cannon losing his hand and a large part of his arm as a "Noodle Incident", referring to a Calvin and Hobbes running gag where some backstory is brought up, but never explained. Well, I'm letting you know that the circumstances around Cannon's hand WILL be explained... in due time. You'll just need to be patient. Cannon REALLY doesn't like talking about what happened, which is why Belt Boy finds it all the more meaningful that Cannon was willing to talk about his hand to help him. Still reminding you that my contest is still going on, and ALL valid entries will win some art! I've gotten one entry already (a definite first; usually, I have people waiting until the last minute!), but there's still nearly three months to go, so there's plenty of time for more entries! Check out my website for the full rules, but here's a brief rundown:
  12. 2/16/19 - Belt Boy's Loose Lips

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Belt Boy lets some sensitive info slip. Also, my annual fanart contest begins! Belt Boy's slipping back into breakdown mode again, and his background in panel 3 shows it. That dark cloud is supposed to be reminiscent of the background from his dream at the beginning of this storyline. There's more I want to say about this scene, but I don't want to reveal too much just yet. All I will say is that the thing that Belt Boy has inadvertently foreshadowed is something I've been planning to mention for years...! My birthday's coming up in just three months, and what I'd really, REALLY like is some fan art and fan avatars! My annual birthday contest has begun once again, and there's two ways to submit entries: 1. If you're good at art, then you can draw/paint/sculpt my characters and e-mail it to me at heroesofcrash-at-yahoo-dot-com with the subject "Traditional Fan Art Contest". 2. If you're not good at art (or don't have all the supplies you need), you can create a custom character or avatar in a video game or on a website, so that it looks like one of my characters. You can then send an image to that same e-mail with the subject "Generated Fan Art Contest" EVERYONE who submits a valid entry will get some art in return; the Traditional category winner will decide my next desktop wallpaper, the Generated category winner gets a filler based on their art, and all runners-up will get a surprise sketch! You can check out the FULL rules on my website at http://www.theheroesofcrash.com/ContestRulesAnStuffPage.htm for more details. Make sure that you submit your entry by May 19th, and have fun!
  13. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Ken Bailey - creator of The Mighty EnergyGirl and winner of my Birthday Fan Art contest last year - requested that I draw my characters playing with model trains. Belt Boy's gone overboard... or rather, "off the tracks". This one was hard to figure out, partly because I wanted the joke to have a good delivery, and partly because I was considering using a character I have yet to reveal in my comic...! One gag I had planned involved Titanium Maiden schlepping a giant remote control for Belt Boy's giant model train, but then I remembered that most model trains I've seen have control panels; it's CARS that have remotes. Gelatin Boy and Cannon struck me as the two cast members most likely to play with model trains; GB's the kind of geek who would have fun, nerdy hobbies, while it's been established that Cannon was fascinated by Belt Boy's gadgets from a young age. If you like this picture, you can make it your own desktop wallpaper! Just go to my main page and click on the Downloadables button to see all the wallpapers I have available! Hmm... this reminds me... isn't it time for THIS year's fan art contest to start soon...?
  14. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Belt Boy goes from feeling down to feeling the love. I know it’s a bit sappy, but gosh darn it, I’m a romantic sap at heart. Besides, these two make for an adorable couple! It’s fun doing “mood backgrounds” like I did for panels 2 and 4 here. I find that I’m doing them a bit more often, and I like how it breaks the monotony a bit. I also like that I’m taking a moment to slow things down and let Belt Boy and Titanium Maiden show that they have chemistry; there will be more of that to come, soon enough! Not much to say from the technical side of things, ‘cept that I posted today’s strip a few hours earlier than usual. I’m visiting my sister in NYC this weekend! Should be loads of fun! See you guys later!
  15. 1/12/19 - All for Knot

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Necros has escaped, but at least someone's getting the PUNishment he deserves...! Looks like Belt Boy was about to get the last lick in, but Necros pulled a "Ninja Vanish". Longtime fans and archive-bingers may remember that Necros used that smoke bomb to escape from his first encounter with heroes of C.R.A.S.H. (Yay! Title drop!). The first panel was the most fun to draw, and my favorite in this week's strip. A simple pose, but still dramatic. Belt Boy's patented Wrapper Ropes of Righteousness were easy to sketch; I used different thicknesses of pencil tools, gradually growing larger and larger, to make sure that the thickness of the ropes were consistent. My least favorite panel to draw was that last one; Unk is a pretty big character for such a small panel, and drawing him turning at the waist proved a challenge. I was originally only going to have Unk and Jackknife in the panel, but I felt as though it looked too empty. I was going to add in Sugar Rush, but I decided Gelatin Boy deserved a laugh (or at least a stifled chuckle) at Jackknife's expense. Adding the three of them to panel 2 in silhouette form was also a last-minute choice to fill up some empty space.
  16. http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Necros gets a taste of his own medicine as our heroes fight him together! He may be tough, but he's outnumbered, and he's left them an opening. But will that be enough to take him down? Stay tuned, faithful readers! Instead of traditional onomatopoeia as sound effects for each attack, I opted to name each attack instead, kind of like the text that pops up in Fairly Oddparents cartoons (which is appropriate, as the show did inspire my comic... even if Hartman seems to have gone a bit off the deep end since then). I had fun playing with the lettering; it was less like writing and more like drawing, with each "font" drawing inspiration from the attacking hero or the attack itself Dino-Mo's "Tail Slam" has pointy letters, reminiscent of a bent dinosaur tail; the letters and background have reptilian-inspired colors. "Dodgeball Barrage" is written on dodgeballs with a yellow background, evoking Dodge's color scheme. Enticia has muted pinks and elegant letters (almost rose-colored, like her civilian namesake) for her "Platform Kick"; more blacks and grays to match her shoes wouldn't contrast with her and Necros well enough. "Cannon Fire" is quick and to the point, with no frills, like Cannon himself and his rapid-fire blasts, with (what else?) a green and purple color scheme. Sugar Rush's volley of "Fury Punches" are accompanied by fist-shaped letters, with muted reds to stand apart a little from her bright red gloves. Jackknife's "Scythe Slash" has letters as pointy as his weapon and green as his outfit, plus they arc in the direction of his attack. Unk's "UNK-ppercut" highlights the awful play on words, which admittedly says more about my style than his, but at least keeps his color scheme. I was initially going to have Unk put the squeeze on Necros again, but I wanted to add a different attack to his repertoire. I also didn't want to have too much of Unk show up in the panel; it would break up the pattern of each panel focusing on Necros and the attack itself. And finally, Titanium Maiden's "Titanium Clothesline" has metal lettering (suggesting titanium, of course), which contrasts nicely with her signature shade of pink in the background. That's a total of eight attacks; the only characters who aren't attacking in this strip are Gelatin Boy (Whose sweat already helped in the previous strip, and who lacks any actual "attacks" anyway) and Belt Boy. Whether or not he plans to take any action remains to be seen, for now...! By the way, I'm always happy to hear feedback from my readers; which panel was your favorite in today's strip? Leave me a comment! I also appreciate it when you share my comic, so please share this post!
  17. 12/29/18 - Happy New Year 2019

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com [Insert holiday greeting/well-wishing] What can I say? The holidays are hectic, and even this filler took time to draw. In all honesty, I'm not doing any resolutions. Resolving to do a thing kinda jinxes it, it seems, so I'll probably be more successful if I don't resolve to succeed. #webcomic #webcomics #comic #comics #superhero #superheroes#superheroine #superheroines #NewYears #hashtag #morehashtags#allthehashtags
  18. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Whatever you celebrate, be sure to share the love this holiday season! Longtime HoC fans will recognize that TM is wearing the sweater she always wears in winter fillers, and Belt Boy is wearing his Christmas-color outfit (You can't tell from this site, but he's traded in his cape for a scarf). Cannon's jacket is based on ones I've worn (as well as his armor's color scheme), and his hat is based on the one his Mii wears when I recreate him in video games. Enticia's outfit is just meant to look classy and fashionable, while Daisy's is a bunch of bright purples and pinks that a little girl might enjoy. Happy holidays, everyone!
  19. 12/8/18 - Spare the Speech

    http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com "We can do this the easy way, or Belt Boy can start rambling again." Belt Boy and Cannon are both largely based on different aspects of myself (although my best friend Chris is also a strong influence on Cannon). Belt Boy represents my creativity and my optimism, while Cannon represents my sense of wit and my sarcasm. It's kind of funny seeing aspects of my personality clash against each other; I'm pretty sure that last panel sums up what happens in my head when I catch myself talking too much. That first panel took forever; It wasn't easy to fit all those characters in there, overlapping each other in such a way that they didn't look too jumbled together. The last time I drew this many characters was only a little over a dozen strips ago, but they were arranged in a straight line, so drawing this panel was a bit more daring. I enjoy playing with the thicknesses of lines and outlines to make characters seem closer and further away; the first and last panels are proof of that. :-)
  20. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Getting rescued by Jackknife is a cold comfort to Gelatin Boy. Then again, maybe that's too harsh. It's colder than lukewarm comfort, and "cool comfort" sounds too positive. Ah, forget it. The metaphor's clashing with the title for this strip, anyway. Had some fun with the shadows on this strip. While the light sources may not be 100% realistic, they at least give the bottom panels a sense of depth. Jackknife's blades can take on different shapes, which is why the one he used here is needle-shaped, rather than shark-fin-shaped. He can shape them as long as they're still in his arm; if he ejects them, they're stuck in their shape, and his arm reloads instantly. He's previously shaped his blades into scythes and boomerangs.
  21. 11/24/18 - Swiping and 'Splosions

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Seems Belt Boy forgot one teensy little detail when he was sharing his plan. Not sure what Cannon's excuse was, seeing as he sustained his head injury (Strip number 718, dated 9/22/18) in the fight AFTER Belt Boy already shared his plan. So long as we're looking at previous strips for clues, no one seemed to notice seeing Gelatin Boy sneak in between Unk and Necros in the last panel of strip number 721 (Dated 10/31/18), nor the fact that the portal disc hasn't been seen since. Gelatin Boy really is a great spy! By the way, if you've been enjoying this strip, please show it some love and share it with your friends!
  22. 10/27/18 - Halloween 2018

    Happy Halloween from TheHeroesOfCRASH.com! Remember to Vote Blue, or Gritty will EAT YOUR SOUL. Usually, my Halloween fillers will include some nostalgic costumes, but there were too many cases of "I Couldn't Resist" with more recent stuff...! I absolutely loved Shuri in Black Panther; with her brains, wisecracks, and cool hand-blasters, she was easily my favorite character. Plus, she's canonically smarter than Tony Stark, who I think needs to be brought down a peg (Admittedly, that's largely because I still have a somewhat petty grudge against Robert Downy Jr. for his not-terribly-Sherlock-y portrayal of Sherlock Holmes). She's a VERY close second to Deadpool for my favorite Marvel movie characters. There was no way I was missing a chance to dress Enticia up as such an awesome character, even if her design was tricky to figure out, simplify, and draw. Titanium Maiden always goes as redheaded characters for Halloween, and I FINALLY saw the movie Brave this summer (and liked it). TM's Merida-styled hair was a bit less tricky than I was afraid it would be; I found myself blocking out the general shape first, and then doing the outermost strands. Cannon always modifies his helmet for Halloween costumes, and this isn't his first time dressing as a Mega Man character (He dressed up as Protoman for the very first Halloween filler!). Cannon and Acid Man (from the new Mega Man 11) share a similar color scheme, have bulky armor above a skinny torso, and wield a barrel-shaped arm cannon on their right arm. The resemblance is unCannony- er, uncanny! Every year, Belt Boy dresses as a superhero, and every year it's NEVER someone from either DC or Marvel! While the Big Two have come up with some great characters, a lot of my favorite superheroes are from outside their universes. Nearly all of Belt Boy's previous costumes have been characters with only one canon universe (making them easy characters to follow and understand), they tend to explore some inventive worldbuilding, and most of them have strong elements of humor. I haven't seen much of One Punch Man, but I would like to see more. I probably would have had BB dress as him last year if I hadn't chosen All Might. One more note: Belt Boy is intentionally trying to maintain his character's half-lidded gaze and small anime mouth. He takes his costumes seriously. Gritty is TERRIFYING. He looks like a Muppet with the dead eyes of a Five Nights at Freddies animatronic. As a Pennsylvanian with Philadelphian parents, I'm a little embarrassed for my own home team. But Gritty has a few things going for him. For one, the concept drawings of him look MUCH less terrifying than the actual mascot costume. And for another, Philadelphia's citizens have kinda adopted him as an anti-Trump mascot. I guess sometimes you have to fight fire WITH fire... or perhaps fight a nightmare-inducing orange monster with bad hair WITH a nightmare-inducing orange monster with bad hair. Being big and orange, I knew Unk was the perfect character to pull him off (And yes, those creepy eyes are glued to Unk's signature sunglasses). And finally, there's Miss Sunflower. This is only her second appearance in a Halloween costume (The first being Gozer the Gozerian). Everyone's been drawing Bowsette lately, and it was only a matter of time until I got into the action. People have been drawing her different ways, combining different degrees of Peach and Bowser's designs. Some make her look mostly like Peach (blonde, waifish, and almost entirely humanoid), while others mix a bit more Bowser into her design (giving her red hair, a bulky physique, and/or a more reptilian design). While I briefly considered drawing Titanium Maiden as a bulky, redheaded Bowsette, it didn't take me long to realize that Miss Sunflower - as a villain with actual horns like most Bowsettes - was a WAY better choice. Outside of her red hair, and her signature makeup, Sunflower's design is mostly like that found in the original Bowsette comic that started this meme (By the way, if Toadette becomes "Peachette", shouldn't Bowser become "Peachser"? I'm just saying...). One last note; I was originally going to draw a different Halloween filler based on the idea of there being unwanted attention at a Halloween party. In honor of The Heroes Of C.R.A.S.H. joining the Collective of Heroes, I was going to promote it by having some other CoH characters show up, with Cannon unsuccessfully hitting on the superheroines and making a less-than-stellar first impression. However, since it was pretty late in the game for me to ask permission to use characters, and I already signed up to do a Halloween art trade for the CoH, I decided it would be best not to start things off by biting off more than I could chew. You should still totally read the other Collective of Heroes comics. The ones I've been reading have been pretty great. And their Featured Comic for the week is- GASP! It's The Heroes Of C.R.A.S.H.! :-D
  23. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com NOTE: I seem to be having trouble accessing my website and uploading the latest comic; I'm posting it directly to social media in the meantime. I'll keep you all updated as I work to resolve this issue. It seems that Necros didn't count on Belt Boy having more friends around! So far, he's only seen Cannon, Dodge, and Dino-Mo. He only caught a glimpse of Sugar Rush, mistaking her for Belt Boy in my May 12th comic. Necros also seems to have misjudged Belt Boy's acting skills; he's been cool as a cucumber this whole time. Well, most of the time - he figured Necros might be able to fight Dino-Mo, but he didn't count on that taser-glove. It was a bit of (sorry for the obvious pun I'm about to make) a shock. Now that Belt Boy has regained the element of surprise, how is he going to use it? Tune in next week and every week, folks!
  24. http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com I didn't use an electricity pun for the title? Shocking! Belt Boy may be known for his gadgets, but Necros seems to have plenty of fun toys at his disposal, too. He has the Necrobots, smoke bombs, portal discs, and now taser-gloves! What else does he have up his sleeves? There were a few ways I could have drawn the electricity in the final panel. I decided to make it blue, so that the bright bolts would pop out against a darker shade of the same hue. I made the bolts jagged and cartoony, rather than being too fluid; I thought this looked more painful. There are some skinnier, fluid bolts on Dino-Mo's body, but they merely supplement the larger bolts for visual effect. By the way, remember how Ken Bailey won my Fanart Contest earlier this year and won the right to choose the next HoC desktop (and later did another picture of one of my heroes just for funsies)? Well, I'm still working on his request. But, I felt that while he was waiting - especially since he did that extra picture - it was only right that I do a drawing of one of his characters in the meantime (and besides, drawing other people's characters in my style is fun)! My version of EnergyGirl has a physique that isn't as bulky as that of Titanium Maiden, but she's still got more muscles than most of my comic's cast, male and female alike. Her eyes retain their basic shape, but has otherwise been tweaked to fit my style better. Her hairstyle is a composite based on several she's had in the past. I also made her three trademark freckles a subtle, dull brown. Ken enjoyed this, and I hope you do, too!
  25. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Necros makes a deduction regarding Belt Boy's strategy. There's more I want to say about that, as well as some of the visuals in this comic, but that would be giving away spoilers, and as Cannon points out, no one likes a spoil-sport. So I'll just need to hold my tongue. It's no secret that I like to give each panel its own color to emphasize the mood or the character it portrays. Sometimes, I'll do what I did in today's strip, and have the colors slowly transition, from a dull red to a medium orange to a bright yellow. I even colored the arrows to support that transition. As one final note, I'd like to say that it's good to be working on story comics again. I've enjoyed my two-week vacation and setting up the contest with a two-part filler, but a month without stories is a long time, even when you only update once a week. Hope you're as happy to have my heroes back as I am!
