She was saying hello. He only heard goodbye. Ever since the change he could no longer stay on the surface. He could only sink further and further into the deep.



Becoming the monster

Sometimes the most terrifying thing about change is when we see it coming–creeping up inside us, overtaking our minds.

In the 1960’s a group of former Nazi scientists ran experiments on German soldiers in an effort to give them supernatural strength and stamina. Everyone of the test subjects eventually went mad. The scientists could never determine if the insanity was caused by the chemicals, or the fact that the soldiers consciously realized what they had become in the process.

What have you become in the process of change? Are you terrified?


Duel Monsters: An Awesome Trading Card Game

Recently I’ve been taking the trading card game (“Duel Monsters“) invented by my two grade-school-age boys, and turning their drawings into actual cards. Below are some samples of the their original drawing and the new cards:

Action Comics: Superman Against The Man of Steel?


Colored update of my previous post.  I imagine this situation as a comic where Lex Luthor builds his own “Man of Steel” to face off against Superman. You can see it won’t end well for Lex… unless he built a whole army of them. Mwwhahahaha!

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Superman 75th anniversary animated short, watch it now. It’s awesome.

Ninja Bill vs. Freakjaw

He’s part werewolf, part man, and another part werewolf… but all monster!  He’s Freakjaw and Ninja Bill has to try and defeat him on his way to rescue his friend, Bun Bun Foo, who is being held captive in Lava Castle (which is a castle with a lava river flowing through it, in case you’re wondering how it got its name).

Will Ninja Bill make it on time, or will he lose to this leering, loathsome lycanthrope?

FYI… the “W.W” on Freakjaw’s belt buckle stands for “werewolf.”  My second oldest son wanted to make it clear to everyone that Freakjaw was indeed a werewolf.  Belt buckles never lie.


Mash-ups: Steampunk Classic Literature #4

Arguably one of the most influential fictional books ever written, Homer’s The Odyssey chronicles one man’s journey to return home despite innumerable perils (most of which are hurled at him via the gods).  Above is depicted the moment where Ulysses prepares a sharp wooden stick to poke out the eye of Polyphemus, the mechanical cyclops.   Ouch.
