Webcomic description

Long ago, The Extinction War was started on Earth, and it spread to every planet of the galaxy. Hundreds of alien civilizations were annihilated, but the fighting only stopped after the Humans went extinct.

Now, thousands of years later, only a handful of organic species remain. The galaxy lives by the Iron Code of the Robot Empire, whose rule is absolute, but for the resistance of small bands of outlaws known as Space Pirates.

The most notorious pirate vessel of all is the SS Shadow’s End, commanded by Captain Lazarus, the most feared being alive, an alien that should be dead. How this monster from the past survived to plague the spaceways no-one knows, but terror grips the soul of those that dare to speak of.. THE LAST HUMAN.

I'm definitely influenced by underground comix. I am often told that my drawings have that Mad Magazine quality - Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Robert Crumb, Vaughn Bode.

That's my style, and I don't try to fight it. I use a nice thick line and I draw things a bit wrinkley and cracked and 'sculpted'(?) I guess... Honestly I try not to think about that stuff too much

A while back I said I'd post some stuff about my process. Here's my first shot at sharing that stuff

This is an old drawing, so I don't really like it anymore but it shows the way I work. I start with a pencil drawing, I photograph it with my phone, email it to myself and then ink it in Photoshop
I'm enjoying the creative alien designs here. They feel somewhat 70's or 80's in their design aesthetic. Perhaps a little Mad Magazine, and a little Ralph Bakshi in their influence. Would you consider any of those an influence?

Managing a perfect empire that is populated with illogical and flawed organic citizens is challenging.
