Hey guys, after quite a chaotic week with countless sleepless nights (including todays) I finally managed to finish my final entry. Sorry for being a tad bit late, but as our fellow redcoat said:

I suppose that Admiral Pastry is the fat lady and hasn't sung yet, so I'm OK :grin:

Anyway, here goes the true story about Jackie the Legend:

Great comic which I have come to expect from you! You are certainly a talented man and that is why you're a redcoat. Great job and story! :thumbup:

Fantastic :thumbup: Amazing ideas, shots and colors, nicely delivered. Well told, well edited, well photoshoped... and I really like the way You designed those panels. There're all piece of art working perfectly together :sweet:

Great job man :thumbup:

Nice job with accentuating the red, it gives the comic an artistic dimension, fantastic dimension I'd say.
(It's obvious this is a fantasy after all, hehe bluecoats getting owned by one guy :tongue: .)
There's one thing though, what are those green dudes doing there in the end ?

A very nicely executed entry! I love the effects you've made, you are quite the artist. :thumbup:

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone, I really wanted to save this black, white and red idea for the ending and I'm quite sattisfied how it turned out! Luckily, because I had no backup plan nor time to do something else ...

The story is true as I type this now. It probably has something to do with which side you chose :tongue:

Some bluecoats infiltrated? Nah,  I just had to include them, so that there is some blue in the comic ... but I got the idea from this clip I recently saw and it's a reference to Toy Story, where all the green aliens went "Ooooooo" to Buzz or the claw? I can't remember ...

Yes there are quite some references, which is another thing I planed for this entry. Both your guesses are correct and the 2nd and 4th picture are from the recent Jango unchained ...

Yeah, I was thinking about making a refference to Jackie Chan too, but then decided to go for Jack Borris, which is more like Chuck Norris :laugh:

Excellent entry! I like the Sin-City-only-red-colour-effect :thumbup:
Good job on the silhouette in the light as well on the one but last picture.

I didn't see myself getting killed this time. But perhaps this is even worse..
