(Please note that some pages from issue 1 were made and/or posted before issue 0, thus the comments may seem anachronistic at times.)

At last, here's my contribution to the superhero genre. I even added a bad pun to the cover, like a superhero comics editor would do ^^
This drawing is actually based on the first sketch I ever made of Bombshell. It doesn't happen too often that I'm that happy with my first character design sketch...

Pages from issue 1 are going to be uploaded daily.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Question. How do you do your lightning effects. Is there a specific way to draw the bolts

Back when I colored this, I was just improvising and didn't really have any idea what I was doing. I think what I did here was: Using photoshop, I drew a darker blueish stroke roughly in the intended shape of the lightning bolt, then a thinner, brighter one over it (inside the boundaries of the first). Then I smudged it frantically to get that electrical jitter. I didn't have a tablet back then, so it was all done with a mouse.

Today, I'd just do it all with brushes and actually paint the jittery bolt, without smudging.
