Do you remember Dr. Droom? He had five appearances in the 1961 Marvel sci-fi monster comic “Amazing Adventures”. Sort of a Dr. Strange prototype, he was a plainclothes supernatural detective, predating the Fantastic Four by a couple of months. In the early 70’s, Marvel reprinted these stories and renamed him Dr. Druid, since Dr. Doom had appeared and I guess they wanted to avoid any confusion with the similar names. Also, someone touched up the look of the character and gave him a little more hair and a superhero costume, with red tights and a robe. I prefer the bald goatee’d guy in the trench coat, but this look might be a little more recognizable at comic conventions.

Here’s a set of strips I did for a syndicated comics pitch awhile back. I got a mess of rejections via email, one actual letter mailed to my doorstop saying they weren’t interested, and another syndicate never replied. I was hoping to sell it as a crime/mystery/monster comic strip with a large cast of flawed humans and various monsters in law enforcement. It was going to have a werewolf cop, for cryin’ out loud. So, I can assume it’s dead in the water, so here it is for everyone in Internetland to read.

Hey, Half Assed Cosplay Idea fans! You want to see my comic strip pitch that none of the comic syndicates liked? Sure you do. Saturday’s not a day I post anything new, so here’s this. Maybe you’ll read it and say “Wow, they really passed up a gem” or “Man, you gotta admit, they had a point”. Either way, here’s twenty-four comic strips you can read without picking up twenty-four smelly pulpy newspapers full of typo-riddled news articles and used car ads.
