Getting back to the main plot, our heroes emerge from the crypt. I could easily have made this two strips instead of one because there’s a lot of moving around and such but I still am looking to move the story ahead faster so I went with this condensed version. Hope you don’t mind!

This strip is blatantly copying the scenes in Iron Man I where Tony Stark is captive and constructing his first Iron Man suit (I believe it is called the Mark I, hence the title). I originally planned to do this strip about 5 weeks ago but could not seem to either find the screengrabs I wanted or couldn’t find the time to sit and scroll through the movie to do some quick sketches. Well I finally got both! If you are curious, Here are the two main screen grabs I used: Here and here. May I present to you… Sugar Punk Armor version I.
Shards has a lot of layers to it, story-wise. It’s time to show more. Here’s a little glimpse at what the Doc and the Goose are up to.
If you missed the other post, I explained the strip took so long because the Magic Mirror took forever to update. I should just do every shard in my spare time (*laugh* Spare time! Right!) and I can just swap out the look of the Mirror as needed for the story but it’s better to work on other things having to do with the strips and the chapters and not something with so little screen time..
Aside from wanting to show some of what goes on for the heroes at home base, I also thought it was time you got to see a little more of what the Library can do:) Its scrolls contain a vast array of knowledge and can actually become any form of written communication once picked up. Most people prefer book form so that’s what you’ll probably see most of.
(p.s. Yes, I am a fan of Dr. Who)
The dreaded BBW… Yep. That’s him alright.
The next few strips will be looking at the other characters a little bit and I am working on an anniversary pic for our 4th anniversary. Wow… 4 years of Shards? ReallY?? Yep! Also, the BBW full color design should be finished and up soon and will appear on his bio page. Yes, the heroes aren’t going home to HQ quite yet. This should be a neat battle coming up. I hope you like it!
Strip not quite done yet… Sorry. Falling asleep at keyboard.
EDIT::: Okay, up and finished!
A little bit about this strip: I original wanted to go back and show you what some of the other heroes are doing back at HQ but my character redesign for Hanstel is slow-going so I will get back to them later. For now, on with the action!
