Another BONUS strip extra!

 

This week, I’m excited to share Dr Malefactor by Brian Hess (“Awake”). I discovered Brian’s work at the 2016 New York Comic Con and was immediately captivated by his animated style. You can find more of Brian’s work here.

 

I’m just about finished with my Comic Con portfolio project, so I should be returning with some Hero Business goodness in a week or two! PLUS, I’ve share what I’ve been up to… lots of fun stuff!

 

Stay tuned, Heroites!

This week’s Hero Business runs a bit earlier this week, since the holidays re hitting this weekend. And with that, we close out our seventh storyline. I think this final page needs one of these, yes?

 

So looks like we haven’t seen the last of Clody after all. Then again. Malefactor said “99% of clones decompose in the first 48 hours.” But what about that 1%, Eli? Yeah… what about that?

 

I guess human cellular regeneration really is an “inexact science.” All covered in the terms of service agreement, I’m sure.

 

It’s been quite an eventful Comic-Con hasn’t it? The rise of Clody. The awakening of Minor Spoiler. Hex Kitten lives! Bravado gets a movie. Brody and Parker make up. The quest for Parker’s father begins!

 

Stay tuned, Heroites, because season two is just beginning to heat up! I’ll be back with new comics in 2017. In the meantime, check out my Facebook feed, where I’ll be running some holiday-themed HB treats.

 

Until then, enjoy the holidays.

 

Also, I wonder if this guy is ever getting his comic book back?

Oh yeah, Parker’s father. Like we’d forget last season’s stunning cliffhanger! (You’ll also note how last week’s epilogue mirrors the same scene).

 

Did anyone wonder why Parker so readily knew Deus back when he was introduced? No? Well, here we are. You should know by now, very little is random in The Hero Business!

 

And I know what Brody means. That Deus sure seems mysterious… ESPECIALLY if you’re a fictional character.

 

Still one more page left to go, Heroites! One more little epilogue before we break for the year…. hmmm, what could it be…?

After an epic falling out

 

and a clumsy make-up….

 

and some lingering bad feelings

 

I’m glad these kids could figure things out! And all thanks to Parker’s minio– uh, fans. You can even spot Parker plying this deal on page 22!

 

And Brody gets his exclusive Comic Con cover. All’s well that ends well…. right? RIGHT?!? Well, we’ve still got two pages left in this storyline, let’s find out!

If only Uberman wasn’t so disgustingly nice.

 

 

And poor Brody. Maybe he is the sidekick!

 

 

Three more pages to the story. Better get the drama button ready. You know, just in case…

Eagle-eyed readers might have wondered where that mysterious text came from on page 17!

 

Could it be? Has Brody infected the Spoiler collective with viewer empathy (page 11)? Only time will tell!

 

About 4 more pages in this storyline… and still a few more surprises! ; )

A group of creators at The Collective Of Heroes participated in a “Secret Satan” Halloween Swap Event! Much like our annual Secret Santa, with a spookier theme!

 

Yesterday I shared Shane Rivett’s cool rendition of Franken-Bravado. Today, I share my entry…

 

Based on Jeff Langcaon’s “Henchmen For Hire,” I created a gag with a monster-villain theme. This was a fun one, because the Henchmen fit neatly within The Hero Business universe, exploring some similarly comedic themes. Jeff’s doing some fun stuff there, so be sure to take a look at his comic! Also, I hear Dr. Malefactor is a big fan of Henchzilla! ; )

 

Check out all the “Secret Satan” entries here. And while you’re there, go ahead and click around — you will definitely discover some cool new comics!

 

Happy Halloween!
