Knuckle Bomb

Reflection

It’s been a good long time since I did any kind of writing here. I just made all the necessary changes to the Battle Maiden Knuckle Bomb Fan Art Contest webpage and figured, since I’m here, I might as well type out my thoughts. A lot has happened since October of last year…

I’m about to wrap up production on the first issue of BMKB, and I’m so excited about it. I never dreamt I would achieve the amount of success I’ve had thus far with Murakumo Comics, and I will forever be grateful for the support and of the opportunity that I’ve received. I’m thankful for all the new friends that I’ve made too, and am looking forward to future projects that we’ve planned together.

Towards the tail end of 2019 it’s going to get very busy in the studio. There are several announcements that I would like to shout out to the world but can’t… At least, not just yet. Good things come to those who wait, right? I will say that this year has already been my most creatively prosperous and artistically satisfying in my short professional career.

I’m very much looking forward to expanding my business, improving upon my craft, producing comics and contributing to the blossoming independent scene. Seeing so many creators collaborate and go for it, throwing their hats into the ring, has been the best kind of inspiration and motivation. And I don’t see it stopping anytime soon!

I’ve spent more time on Twitter and social media within the past 48 hours than I did all of last year… This is all new and exciting, but man am I tired right now, lol. I was up all night prior to the 8:30AM PST launch, slept for a few hours, pushed the comic campaign across multiple outlets, did a 2 hour live stream with Jon Malin, sketched out that thank you drawing of Saaya that’s posted above and started fleshing out the draft work on the next couple of pages for the upcoming, now completely funded, first issue of Battle Maiden Knuckle Bomb!

Monday, 10/08, was a very fulfilling day for me. How do I even begin to describe the overwhelming and amazing response from comic and manga fans over the launch of BMKB? I can tell you what I am going to do — I’m going to put all my effort into producing the best fucking debut issue I can! You guys have taken the chance and backed my passion project, now I have to show you that it’s well worth your backing and give you a reason to look forward to more issues!

Truly, sincerely, thank you!

Battle Maiden Knuckle Bomb

Forced to create genetically modified bioweapons for an archaic occult organization, Dr. Albert Vogel inadvertently succeeds at discovering the means to unlock the limits of human potential. He attempts to conceal his revelation, but the cultists grow suspicious and believe the doctor is withholding that which they desperately desire.

Saaya Volkova, Vogel’s niece, is forcefully abducted and used as leverage. She is critically injured and Vogel is forced to inject his niece with the perfected formula to save her life. The mutagen transforms Saaya’s body, increasing her muscular density and grants her incredible strength and resilience. She also gains the ability to fly and a unique skill to absorb and manipulate biokinetic concussive force!

While struggling and learning to control her newly acquired power, Saaya attempts to fight back and to escape with her uncle. But even if they manage to survive, they will surely be pursued, and just how far does this organization’s influence extend?

My comic, Battle Maiden Knuckle Bomb, will be going up on Indiegogo in October, 2018. Below are some sample pages, as well as a cover design I’m currently working on.
