Return Of the Killer Teddy Bears

zapJcrop

 

Yep, those lovable Teddy Bears last seen in an old issue of Essar Comics have somehow returned to inflict pain and suffering on mankind.

How did these sharp clawed, razor fanged stuffed toys from Hell make the journey from Santa’s Workshop, traveling thousands of miles?  For that matter, why?  As the horde of blood thirsty destructive…things… move from place to place in search of some unknown destination, they leave death and destruction in their wake.

Enter Zap-Man, newly created, still feeling out his new powers, and being tested to his limits as the fuzzy, monstrously cute playthings try to cut him to pieces.  Can even Zappy handle these tiny terrors?

The story is still a ways off in the future, but it is the first tale I have in mind that will be derived from my old Essar Comics series from the 1980’s.

The Weekly Chapters Of The Awesome Zap-Man!

 

 

zapcover04

Over 40 years ago I was struck by lightning.  The power of it drove me to my knees and I think I blacked out for a few months (well, maybe just walking around in a daze), and ultimately I knew that I had been changed forever.

Ok, the “lightning” I refer to was when I created the hero Zap-Man while I was in grade school, drawing the tongue-in-cheek adventures on ruled notebook paper and shared with my classmates.  I really can’t say what caused me to want to draw the adventures of this noseless guy, just that it seemed the thing to do.  I continued to draw his adventures all through high school, and even self-published eight issues of his heroic antics in the 1980’s.

But my Zap-Man, like my dreams, has refused to die, and now that the computer age is here I am going to continue his adventures for as long as I can.  Once a week I will publish another small chapter of the life of Frinin Paznam (aka Zap-Man), while at the same time adding some commentary on my blog about, well, a variety of things.

This web comic has not officially started, so anyone reading this should not get disappointed if they don’t see much happening for a month or two.  As they say, this site is under construction, so please pardon our dust.

Please check back periodically.  When the chapters do start, it will be a wild ride!
