The Adventures of the Blue Avenger!

Watching over the nightly streets of the fort, there is a shadow. A blue shadow! His identity is unknown, but they call him the Blue Avenger!

Posted Image


Feared by his enemies and loved by those he protects, every night he swoops down from the rooftops and takes revenge on every Redcoat who has ever killed a Bluecoat!

Posted Image


He sneaks up behind them and strikes quickly! The Redcoats never know what hit them!

Posted Image


But sometimes he uses a more direct method.

Posted Image


Sometimes he takes them out one by one...

Posted Image


But often he eliminates many of them at once. No guilty Redcoat escapes his vengeance!

Posted Image


Relentless in his noble quest, and haunted by memories of Redcoats murdering his parents, he makes sure that the Redcoats are truly covered in red - their own blood that is!

Posted Image


However, he doesn't mind stopping for "a little snack".

Posted Image


And even a hero like him needs some recreation time.

Posted Image


Long live the Bluecoats! Thank you, Blue Avenger!


Posted Image


I hope you enjoyed it. I don't know any ClassicPirates in-jokes, so I decided to do something completely different. Oh, and by the way, all the redcoats used in my entry are of the lower chinese quality - the kind of quality the Redcoats love sooo much. :pir-devil:

To the Blue-cave! :pir_laugh2:

I love it! My favorite is definitely the use of the red bush as the cannon takes out that red coats head. Also realistic given there's not much in there expect blood to splatter!

Ah, finally a bluecoat entry again :pir-classic: This is something I really like!
The second picture is awesome, and the one with the cannon is hilarious :pir_laugh2: (just like the anchor!)
It might not be the best jokes but it's elaborated so well that it gave me a good laugh.
This is certainly one of the better entries I've seen :thumbup:

Great entry.  You went all out with some very memorable killing scenes.  The anchor was very funny.  The last photo made me laugh the hardest.... you four eyed Bluecoat freak!

The photography and build on the first two panels are superb!  Great tone to set.

As mentioned before, the usage of a red shrub to achieve a cannon-exploded head is simply genius.  I'm jealous I'd never thought of it before myself.

Great entry and interesting vigilante superhero approach.

One scared old Redcoat by now probably. :pir-laugh: The Blue Avenger hasn't found him yet unfortunately, but he'll find him... eventually. Perhaps I should make my next comic about that. :pir-sweet:

Typical Redcoat... Can't even spell "unacceptable". Perhaps you're right, but then again, you Redcoats deserve it! :pir-tongue:

Honestly though, I don't mind the Chinese plastic. The only difference I can see is that of the color, and I don't even notice it unless I hold it next to a regular torso. Toy Story has mostly minifigs from China, and they are great figs IMO. And thanks to the Chinese Redcoats having ended up in the random minifig parts bin at the Lego Store (Don't know why they didn't get thrown away like they are supposed to :pir-tongue: ) I was able to acquire a small army of Redcoats (for torturing purposes of course). :thumbup:

Yeah, the technique is quite old. Skalldyr used it in his entry too, but my use of it is better because it shows a redcoat exploding. :pir-tongue:

Still thinking about my Round 2 entry. Any suggestions/requests?

Running away like a little girl until you find a career in shooting movies?
In the begging there was only 3 men one liked the color red ,another liked the color blue,and the last one liked the color green.Then they found some coats and started hitting each other.That's how war was made.
I will only have respect for redcoats when they actually make a "General Redwater's amazing bleach!"
