Here it is, my entry in the giant monster sweepstakes!
A new Poster Comic featuring Kaiju Kamen, a brand-new character I created. Totally inspired by the Japanese giant monster genre (with a little bit of the INCREDIBLE HULK thrown in there!). My two favorite kaiju films are the original Japanese GOJIRA, and WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS. (It's not until I was well into the coloring stage that I realized I was recreating the scene where the Green Gargantua is battling the giant octopus at the beginning of the film!)
I'm using 'Kaiju Kamen' as a rough translation for Monster Mask (or Masked Monster). The giant octopus thing...Well, c'mon, you can't go wrong with a giant octopus! Like with most of these Poster Comics, they're ideas for stories that I don't want to keep locked in my brain forever. Getting them out in this one-pagers at least gives them a chance to be seen. Obviously a longer story is ultimately more satisfying, but I'll take whatever route is available to me to 'trickle' out my ideas. Not everything I create will find release in a proper comic. At least not with my working method (time/speed/resources).
Thanks, and let me know what you think....
