Trinity Continuum: ‘Aberrant’ Superhero RPG Comics – Silver Age Pastiche

Another comic I did for the ‘Trinity Continuum: Aberrant’ RPG book from Onyx Path Publishing. The comics in the book each riff on a different bit of superhero comics history. This one is paying homage to the ‘Silver Age’ of comics in the sixties, artists like Jack Kirby, John Buscema, Steve Ditko and so on.

It’s also supposed to be an-universe document: a recruiting leaflet for a particular group of superheroes.
I pored over any silver age comics I had to try and get the feel of this one right… Sadly I am no draughtsman like John Buscema and I can’t get the bombast that Jack Kirby had…

But I can try and bolster it up with jiggery-pokery like making it look like it’s on newsprint paper, the printing transfer isn’t great and there’s a phoney version of a four-colour printing dot screen… Which you can’t really see on this, but it’s there when you see it in print, honest!
