Commedia 2X00: Love and science in the Twenty-Xth Century! Updating every Monday.
If you’re on the Facebook, punch it up on your computer-machine and “like” Commedia 2X00. I’m slapping a bunch of concept art there, and you can post comments about how much more awesome it is than anything else in the world ever. Start arguments with my many followers over who would win in a fight between Dracula and Godzilla! They’re not in the comic or anything, it’s just that there haven’t been enough battle scenes for you to argue over Commedia yet.
And if you’re not on the Facebook, please pass word-of-mouth recommendations of my comic to all your other friends in your cave on Mars with your fingers in your ears.
This johnny’s going live Monday, November 21. I’ve decided it. The plan is to update weekly from then on, every Monday until such time as the Internet is deactivated in some sort of cyborg/zombie/dinosaur uprising, which may or may not be the gist of the fourth story-arc.
Coming soon: Commedia 2X00. Centuries ago, Europe was entertained by the Commedia dell’Arte, improvisational comedy populated by stock characters: rich merchant Pantalone, eccentric academic Il Dottore, blustering braggart Capitano Scaramouche, their children Flavio and Isabella, and their servants the violent Pulcinella, the hapless Pedrolino, the cunning Columbina, and the manic trickster Arlecchino. Now, (4 + X) centuries in the future, the legend continues.
Having a strong sense of loyalty to his master, household servant Arlecchino volunteers to be converted to a Super Fighting Cyborg. Also, Super Fighting Cyborgs are awesome. It is a tale as old as time, full of romance, jealousy, betrayal, adventure, mad science, ninjas, and snarky asides to the audience. Maybe some dinosaurs too.
