Karate Beetle and the Magic Rain Droplet
Last year, Nick Nall and I accepted a challenge.
8th Wonder Press, the same wonderful people who published our story “Loony the Moonian Makes Friends” in their 2014 Anthology “Uncanny Adventures: Science vs Mad Science“, came up with a new concept for their follow-up Anthology.
The 2015 Anthology “Uncanny Adventures: Duo” were to feature complete stories told in ONLY 2 pages.
I asked Nick what he wanted to draw and he said that insects would be fun. I remember that I had just watched Bruce Lee’s “Way of the Dragon” the night before so everything got mashed up in my head and I thought: “Karate Beetle!”
We set out to tell a micro epic in two pages with an ironic twist. I think Nick came up with some of this most fun and energetic drawings to date. So to be fair, Nick’s work is always full of energy.
So Congratulations to everyone at 8th Wonder Press and everyone whose work made up those amazing Anthologies, showing that a lot of creativity and story-telling can be crammed in only 2 pages,
Since it has been a full year since the Duo Anthologies came out, we can proudly share our two-pages Epic with you.
