Mike Exner III -- comic writer

Here’s a sample panel worked up by Joe Reynolds and Ted Wing III for a super special secret, uh… sensational project that none of us can really talk about much right now.

What I will say is that having Joe come aboard do lend his pencils has been remarkably valuable, and Ted’s awe-inspiring, visceral colors are as gorgeous as always. I talk about what Ted brings to the art/projects he works on quite a bit, but it never gets old because it all looks so… good. Check out his DeviantArt at the link above if you don’t believe me.

More of this to come in the not-so-distant future.

It’s tumblr Tuesday! Shooting for at least one update every Tuesday from here on out, and now I’ve managed to pull it off two weeks in a row! We’re very excited here at Exlactus World HQ.

The image you’re looking at was done by David Newbold. He’s an incredibly gifted artist that worked with me on a short comics story called “Three Sons” not too long ago. After we’d finished with that (and found a home for it — announcement to come!), David started showing me bits and pieces of a short comic he’d put together all by his lonesome for the latest Outre’ anthology. I expressed my absolute delight with the pages, and David asked if I might be interested in expanding the project a little farther. I eagerly agreed, and now David and I are steadily whittling away at the world and the concept behind the character you see up above.

There’s not too much more I can share about things because I don’t want to ruin it. I can say that the character is a strong female protagonist(yeah!), the story has a mix of magic and science(hell yeah!), and the art is the cat’s pajamas(obviously). If you look closely enough, you’ll see that the metal beasty the main character has taken down is gradually transforming into miniature lions with butterfly wings. They’re butterflions! That alone should tell you how awesome this project is going to be. You’ll see…

Trying to make more of an effort to post to my tumblr. We’ll see how that goes.

I posted this image to twitter yesterday, and so I thought I’d share it here as well. This is a panel from the first page of the first issue of VILLAIN TAKES ALL, a comic miniseries I’m working on with artist Kendall Goode. In this scene, the main character, Amp, just took a hearty blow to the face. And he’s not pleased about it.

Everything Kendall did in this panel works like a charm. The facial expression is great, the way the character is positioned and how his body is reacting, the choice of color in the background, etc. It’s one of my favorites. And there’s a lot more where this came from. We’re just scratching the surface, so keep your eyes peeled for more.

BLACK TERROR: Wednesday at the Diner. Written by Jeff McClelland, Drawn by Rafer Roberts (me).

Man, I enjoyed drawing these public domain superheroes as old farts a lot more than I should have. Thanks to Jeff for choosing me for the gig. This story will be backing up a future issue of Jeff’s TEDDY AND THE YETI series. Here’s a little but more about him:

Jeff McClelland can grow a beard that is both glorious and wonderful. Why he felt the need for two remarkably similar adjectives to describe a beard is unknown. He writes The Tick for New England Comics and is a writer and story editor on FUBAR, a book that is just what you’d expect from a name like that. Visit him in prison, at teddyandtheyeti.blogspot.com and at www.franksandbeansonline.com.”

Jeff McClelland & Rafer Roberts take us to infinity and (way) beyond!
