Thanks for the compliment! (Hey! You're Local Heroes's first fan--other than my friends and relatives!)

Yes, I'm drawing it with the consideration that eventually it will be inked (although I have no specific plans at this time to do any future or retroactive inking).

A few years back, I helped create <a href="http://swg.stratics.com/content/feature/agahw/agahw001.shtml">A Girl and Her Wookiee</a> over at SWG Stratics. You might notice that AGAHW is an earlier, inked version of the same art style I use for Local Heroes.

Also, I have an online portfolio at www.hurm.com/studio/ if you'd care to browse some other artwork I've done.

Ok I just got thru reading all of the "A Girl and Her Wookiee" I could get my hands on and laugh so hard I am pretty sure I broke something inside - I am hoping that it wasn't anything vital :wink:

I'm not an out and out Star Wars fanatic or anything but I figured I love Local Heroes - why not try out AGAHW - Two thumbs up guy!

cheers

Thanks! Bastion wrote nearly all of them. He had a good feeling for the characters and strip-setting right from the start. This may have been because Lorla and Tonkah were based on our characters of the same names from our Star Wars RPG campaign (the West End Games version). Right from the start it seemed absurd to pair up a too-young Jedi wanna-be with a brute that couldn't communicate with any surrounding characters--it translated very nicely to comic strip format. I'm grateful for Stratics in giving us the opportunity they did in hosting the strip.

Hey Nightlynx,

I'd be curious to know which AGAHW's were your favorite. Glad you liked them.

Hey Bastion -
well what really sold me was the whole shopping trip with Tonkah - I have a niece who drags me around on mall trips and let me tell you I have felt like that poor Wookie more times than I can count :D

Another nice bit was Tonkah and Symon "bonding" with the stormtroopers 8) Stormtroopers are alot like the french - no body likes them :wink:

cheers

Great job on them all!

Thanks! Bastion's fan art inspired me to get off my butt and put them in. Can't have the fans imagining the heroes in the wrong colors!

Yep, Hoffa got one, too. He's more of a ubiquitous presence throughout UNIONS than an actual containable entity, but a laptop with bluetooth is just the thing to help him get out and about beyond his daily mainframes.

Cool deal!
If I had a scanner I would so be on the fan art band-wagon! But I look forward to seeing more of your stuff Bastion!

Enjoying it - DUDE I love this strip! And I so had that Agent pegged as the Silent Knight from his build;-) I can't wait to see more of the Local Heroes team humm Is Squire really "back in time" or is this one of those groovy else-Earth capers?

As far as Squire can tell at this point, he is back in time (in the "Silver Age of Heroes")
