The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo - Free Digital Comic by Ironclad Imagineers
Thought you might be interested in having a look at our free web/downloadable digital comic, The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo, launched in January 2012. It's a comic developed specifically for the game-changing digital medium... or, as we've recently started describing it - 'it's like Marvel's Infinite by Mark Waid and Stuart Immonen'.
And what's TLOSLMF all about? Well...
It's an ass-kickingly kick-ass post-apocalyptic, space-western dramedy, with anime influences and a bit of that dark and sexy HBO stuff... but mostly, it's a love story... No! ... Really! It's also for a more mature audience... well, not for 'kids' anyway... not really sure about the 'mature' part. TLOSLMF follows the misadventures of Bran Mak Foo and Honey Pott, a young just-married couple scrounging a living in their dilapidated Ironclad-class deep-space freighter, the Qupid, on the Edge of Endspace; a vast region of space where no semblance of civilization has reemerged after a galactic apocalypse... or three. The Edge is a place where heroes are few, villains are plentiful, and the rest are just trying to survive.
As for how it works --
In short, it's a full-color, super-awesome quality comic, written and illustrated specifically for the digital storytelling medium, and presented panel by panel in a cinematic widescreen format. We launched TLOSLMF in January as a weekly serial, with updates released free on the web, or for download as a PDF so you can read it anywhere you please. Free Subscription is also available.
