Chillin at work today drawing some sexy super hero lookin chick when one of my students notices.
Let me back up a little bit. During a period in which I don’t have a class, I let students who are having trouble come in for help. This was one of those times.
Anyway, he said “Wow Mr.*******, that’s pretty awesome. You should totally draw comics!”
Now this was just one of my students being nice, even though the portrait turned out awesome, and I love it. It got me to thinking, damn, I don’t do anything with my life anymore these days. And I would love to have a comic series. But truth is, I’m really not that great at drawing. I can really only draw the face. That’s about it.
Nevertheless, I kinda wanna do this, and have an idea for a story. It’d probably just be a six issue something or other, but hey, why not, right?
Heres the Character Bios and then I will give the general plot line.

Abaddon – Inter-dimensional being, very tall, dressed in dark robe, wise and sage like. Low calm voice. He’s come from another world to save the earth from the onslaught that is engulfing the world.
Casion – 1. Drug derived from infant that is immune to the disease. Name is from infant’s name.
2. Daniel’s son, infant with white hair.
A disease created by a government scientist possessed by a demon has been released into a high populous area in north-east America. In an attempt to cover their tracks, the government has stolen an infant from a hospital. An infant which they believe holds the cure of the disease. But his father, Daniel, is more than determined to get his son back. Meeting friends along the way, he tries to save Casion (his son) from monsters, soldiers, and government scientists. The leaders of the nation have turned their backs on the rest of the world as, one by one, people slowly fall victim to the disease.
Any feedback is appreciated!
