More Creator-Owned Comics - Genocide: DuostarTue 05 March 2013 by Garry Bodsworth
Before I gave up drawing around 17/18 (nearly 18 years ago) I was working on a strip that I was hoping to be published in a new Lee Davies (he of the old UK fanzine Mondo) publication. So I came up with a whole series bible and a set of comic strips in this universe. Unfortunately part of the reason for giving up on comics was the publication never started and I didn't think I was good enough (looking back I was a little harsh on myself).
I had all these pages gathering dust for nearly 20 years(!) Noone else has seen them apart from me when I was drawing them. Apart from Transformers fanzines I seem to have not successsfully managed to publish any comics, so I have loads of strips in varying states of completedness. Please bear in mind this was done in 1995-ish so such wonders of computers I was using but manually pasting up because it was another year before I had a suitable DTP package.
For Creator Owned Day I've decided to scan them in. Without further ado is Genocide: Duostar unleashed on an unsuspecting world!
This is the original version that I completely re-wrote and re-drew when I wasn't happy with it and after getting a script critique. This is a lot splashier and influenced by US comics, but the version above was much tighter and more 2000AD which is far closer to my sensibilities.
Ping me on Twitter @garrybodsworth if you want to see any more - but noone is that mad surely ;)
