Comic 744 -- T.E.A.M. Encounters a Snag

Vigil's elite force...

... isn't having its best day.

Well, when your commando team doesn't succeed, what else are you supposed to do but call in the big guns?

Comic 743 -- Demonstration of Force

So if you saw this...

... would you mess around with the person wielding the sword? I sure wouldn't.

Got this month from a big vacation adventure throughout the British Isles and into Iceland. If you're remotely curious, you can see some of our photos and Candi's accounts of our journeys on her Facebook page.

My Interview on Blackbird Publishing

Hey look... some press! 

I talk with Blackbird's Jamie Ferguson about books, dragons, comics, characters, and my future projects.



Comic 742 -- With Human Vulnerabilities

More conflict!

http://www.talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic742.html


I love drawing fight scenes. I would not be so presumptuous as to say that I'm good at them, but I enjoy the attempt.

So here's Gail, trying to take the high road in a deadly fight. Does that make her foolish or heroic? Are the two qualities mutually exclusive? How long can she keep it up?

Guess we'll see...

Comic 740 -- Guests in San Quentin

Last day of 2017! Let's round off the year with an update, shall we?

http://talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic740.html


Hmm... "Backup Contingency?" Well, I doubt it will come to that. 

It's another year down, and I'm glad to have you all on board as Thunderstruck continues its strange and mythical course. See you in 2018, everyone!

Comic 739 -- Bella's Safeguards

Time to get Bella out of the box...

Next month... I think things will be okay, but the holiday season is a bit iffy. I'll let you know if there's a hitch in the update schedule.

Comic 738 -- Tale of the Mah Brothers

We're back with Gail and her crew...

Getting into and out of a high security prison looks like it's not even going to be the hardest part of all this.

Comic 737 -- I Am Not a Monster

A very raw deal for the Soames family...

http://talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic737.html


If you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel compelled to say "I am not a monster," it's probably a sign that you're a monster.

This was one of the tougher pages to write and draw. It took some time to find a balance point between getting across the awfulness of what was going on while not going for the horror gross-out.

Krylov sort of surprised me here. I don't actually know her very well as a character yet, so here was a chance to see how she reacted under extreme circumstances. Interesting. I'll have to see how she wants to behave in some of the future twists I've got planned...

Comic 736 -- Searching for an Anchor

Checking in with our Vigil fellows...



http://talesfromthevault.com/thunderstruck/comic736.html

Well, I know we've just officially met Mr. Soames here, but I feel sorry for the dude already. There's some fine print in the contract when you sign up for Vigil that he really should've paid more attention to.
