INTERMEDIATE 1

What's going to happen to Barack Obama? What is Proton planning? What's up with the dog now that he's murdered Satan? How can someone murder Satan? Why are there robots walking around modern day Earth!?!

Other creative endeavors had taken over my free time this week (and you'll be hearing about THAT soon enough!!! Quite literally, actually) so the story of Proton is taking a back seat this week.

but here's something I did to hold you over until next Thursday! This is the first installment of my Intermediate series, where I draw shit simply because I can't think of a good reason not to!




And remember, new Proton next Thursday, and my other project should be revealed within the upcoming week as well.

You guys are awesome, and thanks for checking my shit out!

And as far as the world of robots goes, I bought season three of Battlestar: Galactica. One thing is for damn sure, a show about robots that takes itself this seriously should not be as good as it is, but alas, the show is incredible. I watched the first two seasons with my barely used netflix account, but with the way season 2 ended, I NEEDED this season. Naturally my definition of NEED is not the same definition that a starving and decrepit iraqi child may use, but you get the idea.

Page 8: DAY AFTER



And unless I'm attacked by a Hildabeast, another new one this TUESDAY! And then THURSDAY!

And in the world of robots, I've recently acquired four graphic novels from the British comic series 2000 A.D. Its the series Judge Dread hails from. Any who, these four books deal with robots and how they fit into that universe's society. I'm only a little ways into the first book and I'm pretty pleased.

The first two books are called Ro-Busters. In these; a former military bot and a sewer bot are sold as army surplus to a disaster squad called Ro-Busters. They like, save people from stuff.

The second set of books are called ABC Warriors, wherein the two main characters from Ro-Busters join/create some kind of battle force to fight...something. I'm not exactly sure what its about as I've done just enough research to get me pumped about reading them but not enough to spoil anything major. Trust me, when these books start tickling my fancy, YOU'LL here about it!

PAGE 7: DAY AFTER



Not fully satisfied with this weeks page? Are you left wanting...more? GOOD! To satisfy your thirst for Proton goodness, and to help move the story along, you'll be getting a FULL page Saturday (Saturday's page begins with the panel I put out today), and ANOTHER full page Tuesday! That's right, before next Thursday's page, you'll be getting TWO additional doses of Proton! That's hot!

Its my gift to you; the guys and girls who've been checking out my shit each and every week. I sincerely appreciate it.

And on a closing note, have you been wondering what inspired the comic you've been reading? Look no further! Ok, look a little further, I need to show you the link!

http://m2museum.com/Zbots/Zbots.htm

They're an early 90's robot toyline called Z-BOTS from Galoob/Micro_Machines. They never had any stories attached to them beyond what was on their packaging, making them perfect for a nick leffler style overhaul.

From that site, here's Proton's base-



And here's Mike-



And with that, I'm out. Thanks again, everybody.

KILLTRON!



Totally not Proton related, but totally robot related. He's a transformers fan character created by the user Fulcrum on a transformers message board. Here's the bio Fulcrum made up for him.

NAME: Killtron

FACTION: Autobot

FUNCTION: Ultimate Harbinger Of Peaceful Destruction

ALT MODE: Doom Truck

QUOTE: "It's time... to KILL!"

STATS:

Strength - 11
Intelligence - 11
Speed - 12
Endurance - 12
Rank - 13
Courage - 13
Firepower - 12
Skill - 11

HISTORY:

No-one knows where this handsome, enigmatic lone wolf badass came from, all they know is that he walked out of the radiation soaked wilderness and straight into the fiercest battle that Cybertron had ever seen - and proceeded to destroy an ENTIRE Decepticon army single handedly. Spitting out his cyberchewing-cybertobacco, he then challenged Megatron to single combat. Which he won really easily. All the other Decepticons wanted Killtron to be their leader, but Killtron knew he could never lead a group that previously had Megatron as a leader, because Megatron was crying so much about how badly Killtron beat him. Also, one time Megatron killed his Cyber-puppy. With the Decepticons in full retreat, Killtron kicked down the 10-ft titanium doors to the Autobot fortress they were attacking. Of course the Autobots thought he was a Decepticon and attacked him. He beat them all without really trying, but couldn't really be bothered killing them. Then Optimus Prime jumped in, but Killtron punched him in the face and it was all over. Impressed that Optimus wasn't crying, he decided to allow the Autobots to have him as a member, provided they did what he said if he told them to do something, which he only did sometimes, because he was a lone wolf who stalked alone, and was often too busy killing.

WEAPONS:

Killtron's main weapon, the Brutalizer Planet-killer Missile is capable of blowing up anything, even planets and Unicron. It's nuclear powered, and has an infinite range, and can travel at faster than light speeds. Killtron has sworn only to use it for peaceful purposes, or if there's something really big that needs to be blown up, like if Unicron came back, only he was twice the size and was eating suns this time as well as planets. He's got heaps of other guns and lasers too, and in robot mode he has two laser scythes, one called FEAR and the other HATRED. Fear has a gattling gun attached to it, and Hatred has a missile launcher. Killtron's amazing targeting systems mean that his gigantic array of potent weapons can compensate for anything - tiny targets, lack of allies, poor visibility, etc.


Needless to say I fell in love with the absurdity.

Page 5: Hi Mike.



And awesome news in the world of robots. The season finale of TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES was this past Monday. It was totally awesome. I mean, really. This show is doing more with the characters created by James Cameron than Terminator 3 ever could, so I'm no longer feeling sour about it being completely ignored. The scene with Derrick and John. Wow. That was solid. Like really solid.

Also, TRANSFORMERS: ANIMATED, continues to kick all sorts of ass. Best transformers show since Beast Wars? Easily. First show to be better than Beast Wars? At this rate I would not be surprised.

So yeah, the last strip was cluttered with dialog and had a typo. Bad news fo sho. Its best if you disregard it entirely. So, in light of this cold hampered strip, now that I'm better, its time to get the Proton Parade back on track. This is a special weekend page, and you better freaking believe I'm going to have a new strip up this Thursday as well.

The Threat.


NEW STRIP! FEB 1408!


Not a bad week so far. I wish I could get sick of drawing transformers, then I might draw cooler stuff, like trees or rocks, or something.

So much drawing.

I've been drawing cartoony things for so long I decided to draw something a little more realistic, so without further ado, here's a giant robot!



Large chunks of people (cough*onlinetransformersfans*cough) seem to be obsessed with lots of detail and "realism" as opposed to dynamic sharp angles and bold colors. The entire time I was drawing this I was like "you like detail!?!? I'll give you detail! You like detail?!! I'll give detail! You like detail?!?! Too bad, I'm just gonna punch you in the face! Oh, what? I don't know where you live?! Fine. HERE'S SOME DAMN DETAIL!"

Drawing is fun.

And I'm pleased with this drawing of Dropkick, but I don't think its nearly as fun as the Animated peices I've posted already.

Chee-choo-cha-choo-chee

On Dec. 26, the newest installment of transformers made its debut on Cartoon Network. Its taking our beloved robots in disguise to a level of entertainment (meaning its genuinely a good show, not some badly cgi animated, dubbed, forced anime nonsense) not reached since Beast Wars. Just thinking about it makes my pants tight.
The new show is done up in a post Bruce Timm style, which personally I'm very drawn too. (ooo, unitentional pun!) What you're about to see is what happens when my style and the new show's style make hott, sweaty love to each other for nights on end.

Landmine.
