Australian comics legend, Glenn Lumsden, joins trailblazing Digital Comic, The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo
Ironclad Imagineers is thrilled to announce the return to the comics world of Australian comics legend, Artist - Glenn Lumsden. Glenn's work on Marvel's The Phantom, DC's Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and Cyclone Comics', The Southern Squadron and Dark Nebula paved the way for a generation of aspiring Aussie comic artists to come. We've lured him back with our game-changing digital comic series, The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo. Glenn will be making a Special Guest Artist appearance in the upcoming Episode 1: Part 15, as we blast our way towards the explosive Episode 1 finale.
A word from Glenn - I can't wait to help out the guys on Spacelord Mo Fo. When Dave first showed me what they were doing, I fell in love with the new medium. Comics and computer combining beautifully to create a whole new story telling experience. The visuals are fabbo, it's exhausting to think Dave's been drawing this solo. Then I read Pat's screenplay and was totally sold on the whole thing. Believe me, the story is NOT what you expect! It's going to be a lot of fun helping Dave to at least one of the many grueling weekly deadlines the guys have committed themselves to.
Launched in January 2012 by Ironclad Imagineers, Pat McNamara and David G. Williams', The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo is leading the charge across the digital comics frontier alongside celebrated pioneers, Mark Waid of Thrillbent's Insufferable and Marvel's Infinite, Kurt Christenson and Reilly Brown of Power Play, and D.J. Coffman of Hero by Night.
About The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo
It's a post-apocalyptic, space-western, dramedy, with anime influences and a shot of that dark and sexy HBO stuff, so yeah, it's for a more mature audience... well, not for 'kids' anyway, not sure about the 'mature' part. We follow the misadventures of Bran Mak Foo and Honey Pott, a just-married couple scrounging a living in their dilapidated 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...
...oh, and as if life weren't tough enough already for our heroes, Bran just so happens to be the most wanted man alive - Spacelord Mutha... well, we'll say Mo Fo because we're in polite company. The Mo Fo's said to be a one man army who walked into a bar and let loose a hell that destroyed a city. Of course, the truth behind that tale is something else, but that's a truth for another telling. At its heart The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo is a rock-em, sock 'em tale of love and guns, with Bran and Honey fighting the good fight against the galaxy, and sometimes each other, but always finding a way through... together... mostly... we hope...
