So as promised in my previous post, here they are… the villains of HAVOC FORCE! (Vanquish, Dr. Delirium, and Snake Woman!)
I wanted all the baddies of this book to have really wild hair, and I wanted to use a color scheme similar to the golden days of comics where the villains predominately wore green, purple, and orange (while the heroes were typically in red, blue, and yellow). Might be hard to see, but Dr. Delirium’s eyes are purple, and I also wanted the character to have kind of a continuing purple theme as well. I don’t know if its true or not, but I read somewhere that purple is the color of madness, and for whatever reason that just stuck with me.
Looking forward to introducing these characters in upcoming comics so stay tuned for more HF updates, and thanks for reading! 🙂
With the only exception of Deadman (a character I created for another comic but I liked him so much I wanted to use him in this one) it was always my intention to grow Havoc Force by adding these four characters to the team along the way. Unfortunately, I never imagined it would take this long to finish the first issue. But I’m back in the swing of things, and these characters above and who they are will be introduced in upcoming issues of Havoc Force! Also I’ll be posting sketches of my 3 main baddies of the series next, so stay tuned for a sneak peak! Thanks for reading! 😉
Yeah so here’s the deal: I started working on this comic book called Havoc Force 4 or 5 years ago. Originally I wanted it to be for kids, and much like a Nickelodeon cartoon series. Very silly and light-hearted. But 20 pages into it (only 4 pages left to draw) I just lost all my steam. My story was just one big joke, and I wanted it to be more than that. I really loved my characters, and I felt they deserved better. Nothing wrong with doing a kid’s cartoon, but I realized that I wanted to be able to tell more serious stories, as well as the light-hearted ones. And if I was ever going to pick the ball back up on HF, it was time I took my characters more serious too. So I decided to ditch silly caution-striped costumes, and give them a fresh, new look! So here it is, folks… the ALL NEW Havoc Force!!!
(Decided I liked all black underneath the jacket the best)
For the record, I don’t plan on scrapping my first HF comic. I plan on finishing it, and slowly building a more serious future for my heroes from that point. Havoc Force is never going to be as dark as Batman or as brutal as the Punisher. That’s not really my style. (There is still going to be plenty of humor and fun in my books!) But I do have a lot of ideas I’m really excited about exploring in future stories, with lots of cool new characters and villains to introduce! And the only way I can do all that is to stop treating Havoc Force as a joke, and start takin’ care of business! So stay tuned for some serious HAVOC coming your way soon! 😉 Thanks for reading!
