Dude in Distress

Starting from Comic #1: Dude in Distress Teaser #1
Dude in Distress Teaser #1
Here's the first teaser for Dude in Distress.
I'm aiming for a March 2015 launch, but look for more teasers here in the coming weeks.

For those wondering what it'll be about, here's my submitted summary:

So you wanna date a superhero? I have news for you . . . It's not all romantic flights through the night sky and wild romps in the bedroom–there's also lots of falling, danger, and general peril.

JOIN normal human Clark Peters as he begins his relationship with the world-famous superhero Femme Fantastic!

WITNESS the dangers facing a normal guy from supervillains, other superheroes, and his friends as Clark experiences all the trappings (both literal and figurative) that come with dating a superhero!

EXPERIENCE what it's like to be a Dude in Distress!
Dude in Distress Teaser #2
Here's the second teaser for "Dude in Distress," and we get a better peak at one of the main characters (who's arm we also got a peak of in the first teaser). Look for another teaser next month, which will introduce The Guys.

Does the "viewer" of this use binoculars or a telescope? It looks very much like a zoom-in.

Dude in Distress Teaser #3
Here's the third teaser for Dude in Distress. This time, you get a look at "The Guys" (Clark and his group of friends).

Next month's teaser will feature "The Heroes."

Great job with the background and it being out of focus, would have been even better with a floor that had a bit of structure, now it looks a bit like the guys are floating because of the soft shadows beneath them.

Dude in Distress Teaser 4
Here's the 4th teaser for Dude in Distress, giving you a look at the major superheroes of the story. In the first Episode (i.e., first issue), you'll only see Femme Fantastic, although a few others will be mentioned.

As for a start date for the comic . . . I'm still not sure yet, but it'll probably be bumped back to summer. Production has been more labor-intensive and time-consuming than I had expected, and I don't want Dude in Distress to interfere with Fusion, so I'm slowly working on Dude in Distress artwise (writing-wise, I'm well over halfway through scripting the second issue, so I have tons of material to do art for).

I will continue to do art teasers every month until I'm comfortably ready to launch.

These are actually really great superhero names.
Hmm, Beauty Beast makes me think of Tigra from the Marvel Universe. The Grim Gumshoe makes me think of Rorschach (Watchmen). Hopefully these characters distinguish themselves from these others.

Dude in Distress Teaser 5
Here's the fifth teaser for "Dude in Distress." Just a shot of Femme Fantastic sitting on top of her ship during a sunset. I think I'm gonna have some prints of this made (11 x 17 in.) and probably sell them for $3-4, plus S&H. I'll even sign 'em if you want. If anyone's interested, let me know.

A full HD-sized wallpaper of this will also be available at my DeviantArt site (http://essaybee.deviantart.com/), as well as larger size prints, mugs, magnets, etc. DeviantArt's prices are a lot higher than what I'll sell 11 x 17 prints for, but they offer a lot of different options.

Wow, perspective!

Dude in Distress Teaser #6
Here's the 6th teaser for Dude in Distress. Here we get a peek at Femme Fantastic in her around-the-house, bumming clothes. This look will feature in the "Living With a Superhero" interludes that'll be sprinkled throughout the series.

She's gorgeous! Extremely well designed and looking forward to this!
I like how she uses her freeze breath on that beer bottle,I dare to ask-can she shoot laser beams from her eyes?
