Here's a brand new LEGO comic strip I made in a 24-hour frenzy yesterday.  You can download all 24 pages in .PDF format from here.  I hope you enjoy it, I had great fun making it.

Yeah, I started on Sunday and did 6 pages, went to bed for 6 hours and made the rest yesterday.  Great fun.

Hey, it's great to see somebody else tackle the Lego superhero comic genre!

I can't believe you put that all together in 24 hours. It sometimes takes me TWO MONTHS to put together 7 or 8 pages for my comic. I am a very lazy man ...

Thanks for your comments.  How did I do?

I used my experiences with Grunts and an earlier comic strip I still run occasionally (Strange Things in Tabletown) to really go to town on the layout of this one - it's my "magnum opus"!  Some pages have up to 60 separate elements/layers making them up.

I was literally writing this thing as I went along, I had no plan, no notes, no nothing, real seat of the pants stuff.  I was also releasing pages on Flickr as I made them so I couldn't go back and correct any mistakes in the plot, it kept me on my toes!

General note - if you want the pages individually and in greater detail, you can get them here:

In one of the boxes, where you deploy the town's military forces, I believe there is a big tank there? It certainly isn't one of your earlier tanks, so could I see some pictures, as its beautiful! :wub:

I loved it, as I said before.

That's the Vindicator Super-Heavy Self-Propelled Artillery unit.  It's a double-barreled tank, basically.

Every single one of my MOCs is on the Tabletown website:

This is a great comic books, especially for only 24 hours of work. I like how you used the exo-force head for Saladator it's probably the best use I have seen for this head (I don't like them very much).

Wow! 24 pages in 24 hours (minus sleep)? That's over one page per hour. :look:
I can't read this right now, but I will tomorrow. It seems like a great story/comic. :laugh:
