Comic description

Cthulhu and the Gun Lords of Terra is a work which incorporates elements of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, with a number of my own ideas. Genre-wise, it incorporates elements of horror, science fiction, and fantasy.

The story concerns humans from Earth that have become stranded on a bizarre world. This transportation process being due to a accident involving ancient non-human technology. The place of the stranding is very possibly not in our own universe. Although the specific place that this world fits in the larger multi-verse is unknown due to the mysterious nature of the artifacts involved in the transportation. In any case, the unfortunate travelers were forced to survive in a fantastic world, amid colossal ruins of dead alien civilizations (along with some monstrous things that are still all too alive).

The events of this tale actually take place more than a century after the stranding, and thus the characters involved have had some chance to adapt to the circumstances. The characters are not really people of Earth anymore, although they still think of themselves that way.

The original nature of the venture was a military excursion. So, as time moved forward, things were organized along military lines. A situation somewhat like the samurai evolved, but with guns instead of swords. Military "noble houses" formed, giving rise to the "Gun-Lords" featured in the title.

You had better! We are paying a lot of money to read this comic!
Oh, wait-a-minute, it is free to read, like mine.
Never mind me then. Lol

All excellent points!

Your advice is very much appreciated, and also very accurate. :-)

Although, the current situation makes me think that a bit more time needs to be taken with the design of things. I think I'll take this weekend off from posting new pages, in order to look over the various design options, and hopefully get something I really like. I'm definitely going to take your advice on the pants, those do need to be a different color, and black would be a good option for that. The leg armor is also a great idea.

I'll work on it today, and see what I can come up with.

I love Flash Gordon. I saw the 1980 one in theatres as a boy with Sam J. Jones and soundtrack by Queen and thought it was amazing.
I think if you just made his pants black that would "anchor" the look of his ensemble better and add variation, black is a visually heavier color than red, and none of your examples have matching pants and shirt colors. The uniform color doesn't work as well.
You could still add armor padding to the leg region to make it look meatier, but perhaps make it look like its sewn in to indicate a faster, lighter weight armor, like the leather armor that a rogue or thief wears for instance.

I think you're right about the armor.

Although the original concept I had didn't have that much of an armored nature. . . . Here are a few reference images that indicate what I was originally going for :

It would be nice to find some hybrid design that keeps the feel of my original vision, but also gives a more armored look. I'll have to see what I can come up with. . . .

It's his lower region, it looks like leotards. I would give him some hip and leg armor as well.
