Due to Finals coming up, Mother’s Day, and the Friday Strip from last week killing my buffer, I didn’t feel I had the time to finish the next comic in the actual plot, so instead here’s this, something that I knew I could finish in a couple hours. We’ll get back to things next week.
Hey! Kong Tower #8: The Super-Douche Saga is up IN COLOR as a voting incentive!
As I mentioned in lieu of a comic on Tuesday, the computer on which I do all my photoshopping has crapped out, leaving me without a readily available way to shade, color, or even scan a comic. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to make a Deadpool comic, so you get one with just lines, no value, hand-written text, which I essentially just photographed with my hand-me-down phone and messed with the color on, but which has far above my usual level of gratuitous violence to make up for that.
Yes, my Deadpool Ersatz is a heavy-set young woman. But anyone who knows about Deadpool will tell you this is hardly a stretch as far as alternate versions of Deadpool go. I didn’t really conceive of her character as a version of Deadpool, but as I was reviewing my roster of planned characters, I realized she was close enough to work for this. She’s snarky, and has an impressive healing factor (which actually stems from her ability to convert one type of bodily cell into another, allowing her to turn her plentiful body fat into super-dense muscle), and she’s one of the wackier characters I’ve come up with.
Everybody enjoy Deadpool this weekend. Me, I’ll be seeing it on Sunday because I’m a pathetic loser who can’t get a date and this movie and the free admit slip I got from when I saw a fire-alarm interrupted Jurassic World is my consolation prize from the Universe.
Vote for Kong Tower, and share this on your various social medias, and maybe this comic’ll get popular enough that ladies will flock to me! That could totally happen, right? Right guys?
This one’s out late unfortunately. I was hoping to get further into this before I started slipping.
But anyway, Here you go! Monkey Man! The secret identity of that guy on the right in the first two comics who was named as Sunny Wu, owner of Kong Tower (Classical Chinese Literature fans will get that joke) only twenty four comics later. Yes, he wears Utility Suspenders, and his chin is entirely shielded while his neck and jawline is exposed. And yes, his chest insignia (and thematic throwing star-boomerang things) are meant to look like Monkeys in a Barrel. You remember those? They were fun in a the-internet-isn’t-practical-yet kinda way.
Of course, if you Voted for Kong Tower you’d have known who he was weeks ago, and you’d especially have known if you’d voted every single day like you totally can and isn’t that awesome! Even now, by doing so, you can see a huge, full-color image of Monkey Man in all his Simian Glory!
Just one more week until you can find out the mysterious secret identity of mogul Sunny Wu! (unless I fall behind schedule. Which is distinctly possible.) If you just can’t wait that long, darn it, just Vote for Kong Tower on Top Web Comics to see a huge, fully-colored image of the superhero in question in all his glory!
Vote for Kong Tower and find out who the figure in the shadows is! Unless you’ve already voted. Or just guessed. But Vote anyway!
Vote for Kong Tower! It won’t even remotely cost you your soul. Nope.
I’m really happy with how this one came out, artistically. Comedically… eh?
Vote for Kong Tower! Or Sergeant Omega up there will stare at you.
