Hamster Rage Webcomic 98

PAGE 98 Panel 1. Roosevelt and MegaBabe sit at coffee facing one another. ROOSEVELT: I felt like my head popped, it was like a buzzing went away and I started to understand things. MEGABABE: Oh, it’s like a headache going away! ROOSEVELT: YES! Panel 2-7 - MegaBabe and Roosevelt talk MEGABABE: Do you remember anything from before, like where you were? ROOSEVELT: No I mean really the first memory I have is hearing “In a Big Country” by Big Country. MEGABABE: Seriously??? ROOSEVELT: Yeah, I love that song and for some reason it made me feel really happy. MEGABABE: Yeah I mean I love that song too, but you threw a car into space... why? ROOSEVELT: No clue. MEGABABE: Sweet. Well that’s awesome. Panel 8 - Roosevelt. ROOSEVELT: Look I don’t know if I’m a mutant, an experiment, a animal hybrid... no idea. I’m doing my best with Gram and Shayna to continue this routine, train with the Allied Force and just figure things out.  The only thing I do know is that when I met you for the first time I felt something strange within me. Maybe it was love... I’m not really sure.

Part 3 of Conversation! Roosevelt's dropping some awkward truth bombs here. That conversation between the two of them was long overdue! It's incomprehensible to me that I'm now 2 pages away from number 100!

Hamster Rage Webcomic 97

PAGE 97 Panel 1 Roosevelt and MegaBabe stroll over to an old photo of the Allied Force that features a young MegaBabe, Mood Ring, Tigron, Lion Man, Everest, DevilMayDare, (Wolf Savage and Amazona. Maybe added in later)  MEGABABE: Wow... I haven’t really looked at this picture in years.  Panel 2 Roosevelt is surprised. ROOSEVELT: Wait... That’s you?!? MEGABABE: Yeah, way back when I first joined the team. I wasn’t really eating much back then. ROOSEVELT: Okay so you, Ring and DevilMayDare, but where’s the rest of the team? MEGABABE: That’s not DevilMayDare, that’s his father, Daredevil. He and Lion Man retired... The Solution also... left. Panel 4 - side shot of MegaBabe’s face: MEGABABE: Everest and Tigron went into deep space on mission 3 years ago... we’ve never heard back from them. We think the alien ship you crashed could have had something to do with that. Panel 5 -  MEGABABE: Hey wanna grab some coffee or something? Panel 6- ROOSEVELT: Sure!

So Roosevelt doesn't really know how to respond to that bombshell that she just dropped, but that won't be the last time they talk about it. Speaking of MegaBabe, check out the first sketch I did of her below. Below you can also check out the full pictures of the 90's incarnation of the Allied Force.

Hamster Rage Webcomic 96

PAGE 96 Panel 1 - Establishing shot of the Allied Force HQ (IIT student center.  Panel 2- MegaBabe is showing Roosevelt the case they’ll keep “The Internetz” in. MEGABABE: Thanks for helping me out last month with Th3 InterNetz. We keep active enemies in the containment area, but since we’ve deactivated this guy so he’s not a threat anymore and can live in the trophy room. Panel 3- ROOSEVELT: Wow, there’s so much stuffs here!

Roosevelt and Megababe are about to learn a lot more about each other.

This page features three cameos from my life... the first is IIT where I rebooted my career at a Web Design and Development Bootcamp many years ago. When I first saw the student center I knew I had to turn it into a superhero base.

The second is "Icarus 3" a RCAD  thesis project I did that was pretty ill considered, but it was an important failure to learn from. 

The 3rd is Tigron.
Tigron is a character I've been drawing since I was 7.

Check out the old sketches of both in the gallery below.

PAGE 94 Panel 1. Mood Ring nand BounceBack are outside the interrogation room. BOUNCEBACK: So how’d I do? Panel 3-4. Mood Ring MOOD RING: Perfect. That clown sung like a canary and he didn’t even realize it. Panel 5.

Hamster Rage Webcomic 93

PAGE 93 Panel 1- BounceBack sits across from General Dalt’Mondpru Vayne. BOUNCEBACK This is what we know: your name is General Dalt’Mondpru Vayne of the Monadockian Empire. Your crew hijacked the battleship Tenenbaum and instructed the bridge crew to attack Earth. We know that after they’d crashed they hid out and launched a ground attack the next day. Then you executed all of the crew. Why? What are your goals on Earth? GENERAL VAYNE “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,  Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Panel 2- BounceBack is confused. BOUNCEBACK: I don’t follow-  Panel 3 - General Vayne GENERAL VAYNE Of course you don’t.  Panel 4 - Silence. Panel 5  -  BounceBack responds BOUNCEBACK: You’re absolutely right, I don’t even know why I’m here- GENERAL VAYNE You’re here because your superiors are willing to sacrifice the pride of another worthless little pawn. BOUNCEBACK: Great... so why kill your own crew? GENERAL VAYNE Why isn’t the point. That crew was meaningless.  42 gateways. 13 government overthrows and 33 invasion forces. Your horrid little mudball can’t manage itself and the wretched filth on it. You’ll never stop the Monadockian Invasion.

Hamster Rage Webcomic 90

PAGE 90 Panel 1 ROBOTO MUCHACHO: The transmission bolts they’d removed allowed me to connect to the internet on the lonely patrol they sent me on.  I began reading. I learned the mission I was on was fruitless. I witnessed more Americans crossing the border into Mexico than Mexicans leaving for America. Those that were attempting to leave were children!  Panel 2 ROBOTO MUCHACHO: As I travelled south and continued reading I discovered that in fact those that were leaving were from other countries in Central America. Many were children trying to escape the violence of guns only to be met by guns. A crass celebrity game show host was stoking the flames of racism and proposing building a wall! Panel 3 ROBOTO MUCHACHO:  When I discovered this I got so angry, I destroyed all the other drones.

This is part 3 of the origin of Roboto Muchacho! Today's colors are by Wes Wong!

Hamster Rage Webcomic 87

PAGE 87 Panel 1- Roosevelt and MegaBabe look a T3h INternetz in a containment field. ROOSEVELT: They helped you? MEGABABE: Yeah they did, and believe it or not some of the people that helped straight out HATE me. ROOSEVELT: How’d you figure they would help out? MEGABABE: I was relying on two variables: their own self preservation and faith. ROOSEVELT: Faith? MEGABABE: Yeah, I don’t really believe in much... but I believe that most humans care when they know others could be suffering and if you empower them to take action and save the day: they’ll listen to that call.   It just important that they know the truth and it’s getting harder to get those signals though all the noise of tribalism, that divide that keeps us apart when really we’re all just simple animals that want to be loved.

You can also catch up on Hamster Rage by grabbing the 404 adventure, and issues #1 and #2 here for only a $1. I’m really proud of this story and this page in particular. I started Hamster Rage to get better and right now I’m starting to feel like my abilities are progressing.

This week and last week’s comic are particularly relevant, if you’ve been following events on social media and in the general comic community sphere there is still an awful lot of cyber bullying happening by Misogynist/Gamergate/Trump supporters and a certain comic book “pro”.

PAGE 84 Panel 1-3 Roosevelt smashes the monitors, crushes a keyboard and stomps an xbox 360 game console.  SFX: KRUNCH POP STOMP Panel 4. Roosevelt grins and wipes his paws.  ROOSEVELT: That was too easy! Too easy!  Panel 5. MegaBabe is dialing on her gauntlet frantically.  MEGABABE: Whoa! That speech therapy is paying off--  uh oh... I’ve isolated ‘The Internetz’ to this location now, but he’s surging again. We’ve cut him off from spreading but I need you to work on him while I work on isolating the infection into a single device.  Panel 6. Silhouette of Roosevelt again behind him is a gigantic version of ‘T3h Internetz’ T3H INTERNETZ: L-O-L! L-O-L! L-O-L!

C2E2 was pretty rough for me this year. I’ve gone to C2E2 every year since it’s start in 2010. In fact I launched the website during the first C2E2. I look forward to it every year and had planned on scheduling the launch of the Kickstarter around this year. Unfortunately this year I was waitlisted and then declined an artist alley table. It happens. It happened to me and from what I gather it happened to a few other people. ReedPop is a business that has to make it’s money and even though it stings personally, it’s certainly not intended that way. That’s a hard thing for me to accept… but it also means I’m going to need to work harder and get to other shows and small shows.

So I decided to stroll around and cosplay as Roosevelt… because why not? What else could I do really but try and make the best of the situation?

  

Speaking of smaller shows… I will be at the Oak Lawn Public Library on Saturday May 6th.

If you’re available please come see me! If you know of any other smalls shows please contact me!
