BlackGuard Chapter Format

In case you missed it, we recently started Issue 8 of BlackGuard (the beginning of “Ghosts of Sins Past”) on the website. What we posted isn’t the entire issue, just the first chapter. From now on, instead of posting a page at a time, we’ll be posting around 7 at a time as chapters. Will is drawing the next chapter as we speak, and it should be on the way soon.

The last real update I remember doing on this blog was when I talked about possibly starting a store on the website. That was almost a year ago. It turns out I don’t have nearly enough time to deal with that along with all our other projects. I wouldn’t count on seeing an online store anytime in the near future. I apologize for that, but we do have some other things in the works that should make up for that.

 

Side Projects

21 Nuke Salute

In the meantime, (shameless plugs coming) I also started working on a new project called 21 Nuke Salute, which can best be described as a production company. We have a weekly podcast and are currently working on a couple film projects, including comedy sketches and music videos. You can find some of our work on our Facebook page and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or SoundCloud. And just for the hell of it, we’re also on Twitter [@21nukesalute] and Instagram [21nukesalute].

Stand Up Comedy

Did I mention I’ve also been doing stand up comedy for the past 3 years? I might start posting videos of that on my personal Instagram [jerrodbosc] some time soon..

Artwork

In the meantime, Will has been blowing up on Twitter [@WillieJSmithII] and Instagram [suicidal_assassin] for his WWE drawings, recognized by many wrestling stars themselves.

 

So, yes, we’ve been busy, but trust me, we have not forgotten about the BlackGuard.

Peace.

SequoiaSequoia: 2016 has been... an unusual year, to say the least.
MercerMercer: Damn! Not Prince!
MelaninMelanin: Oh, so Beyonce drops Lemonade and stops straightening and dying her hair, and now we want to pretend like she was down with the struggle from the beginning?
StaplesStaples: Wait... The president of Russia is named Vladimir WHAT?!
OdanOdan: I don't care what people say, that Drake album was trash! And so are all these other weak ass new school rappers!
DoomeDoome: From one super villain to another, I gotta say, well played Mr. Trump.
MercerMercer: AND David Bowie?!
SequoiaSequioa: I'd describe Hillary Clinton as the hero us feminists neither deserved or needed....
GeronimoGeronimo: Looks like four more states done accepted da lovin' embrace o' da Mary J!
OdanOdan: Young Thug. Trash! Lil Yachty. Trash!
StaplesStaples: BWAAAH ha ha ha ha!
MelaninMelanin: I mean let's be honest, if slavery was still legal in America, where do you think she would be? In the field or in the house?
MercerMercer: Those two were legends! I loved them!
DoomeDoome: And you're surrounding yourself with your very own Legion of Doom! Please, appoint ME to your cabinet!
OdanOdan: Future. Trash! 21 Savage. Trash!
SequoiaSequoia: If anything, I feel this year reminded us of how good it is to be a white man. It's like you're a member of a secret club operating out of a treehouse fort with a sign out front that has “No girls allowed!” scribbled on it.
StaplesStaples: Heh heh. Putin. Who's the vice president? Smirnoff Skidmarkovich!
MercerMercer: I meant that heterosexually. You know, as much as a man can love another man...
MelaninMelanin: The Black Panther movie? Just because it has a black director and a mostly black cast doesn't mean white Hollywood won't find a way to fuck it up. I'll save my enthusiasm until I see it.
GeronimoGeronimo: We Jamaicans may have our disagreements wit' ya, but prayers out to me Haitian breddas. Dat Matthew a real son of a bitch...
DoomeDoome: Appoint me head of the Building the Wall department. I have a few blueprints here with me...
OdanOdan: Kanye used to a'ight, but then I think the Illuminati did something to his brain and broke him. So now, trash!
CrucialCrucial: Maaaan, they ain't had to do my boy Harambe like that.
StaplesStaples: Gun control? More like fun control, amiritght!
SequoiaSequoia: Why's Crucial here?
MelaninMelanin: What were my five favorite Netflix programs of 2016? 13Th, 13th, 13th, 13th and 13th!
MercerMercer: But then again, this is 2016. A man's allowed to love another man pretty intimately, so maybe not that much- Okay, let me start over. Can we cut that part out?
DoomeDoome: We can have a surveillance system here on the first floor, laser canons on the second, a gift shop on the third...
OdanOdan: So, what about Prince? Did the nigga have bars? If not, trash!
RansomRansom: The police are doing a great job this year. Just magnificent!
StaplesStaples: And don't even get me started on Brexit! Mostly cause I don't even know what the bloody hell a 'Brexit' is!
SequoiaSequoia: Judging by the leniency we keep giving the offenders, I guess at some point we decided that rape “Actually isn't that serious.” We don't want to punish them TOO harshly...
MercerMercer: Don't get me wrong, I'm not homophobic or anything. I just come from a different time per- Wait, what did Odan say about Prince?
DoomeDoome: You know, now that I think about it, Trump's on the right track to destroying the world. Despite my admiration for that level of dastardly, the world's where I do most of- No, ALL of my villainous activity...
OdanOdan: Meanwhile, Meek Mill out here looking like the Yamcha of hip hop. That nigga lose a different beef every week!
MelaninMelanin: As far as the Rio Olympics... [Claps slowly] WE killed it.
SequoiaSequoia: “I mean, come on guys, let's be fair and try to see things from the rapist's point of view.”
MercerMercer: Let Odan keep talking and the appendage formerly known as MY FOOT is gonna meet with the backside formerly known as HIS ASS!
StaplesStaples: Let's see, what else we got here on the ol' list o' 2016 topics. “Another sex scandal involving Anthony-” *Pfffffft*! Seriously?! Who writes this stuff? Get this guy an SNL contract! He's killing me!
DoomeDoome: He must be stopped. Get Bernie and the rest of the Social Justice League on the line. Tell them the Dakota Access Pipeline can wait!
OdanOdan: R.I.P. Phife Dawg. R.I.P. Shawty Lo. R.I.P. Knuck If You Buck beat.
MercerMercer: That little purple ninja's gonna be crying tears of purple rain. Ya'll about to see what it sounds like when ninjas cry! While my fist gently weeps!
.....
What were we talking about again?

The last time we saw Dirk Sanders.

Unless I’m mistaken, I’m pretty sure this was the last time Will drew Dirk in the comic. This was Mr. Sanders final official appearance.

In preparation for the next issue of BlackGuard, we showed some concept art for the new villains appearing in it. Well, we have one more character to show you. This one isn’t a villain, but he’s not exactly a friend either, at least not to the BlackGuard. His name’s Agent Sova, and he’s here to handle business.

Sova Concept

Agent Sova will be appearing in Ghosts of Sins Past.

Speaking of the new issue, here’s a sneak peak of Odan doing some training.

BOSC Comics Store On the Way!

It’s 2016, and BOSC Comics is planning on making a comeback this year. We had to take a year off from making comics to recharge and focus on other projects, but this year will be different than 2015.

We’re not saying things are going to return to the way they were. We’re still not going to be doing weekly pages webcomic style, but we will be putting out more BlackGuard content. One thing we want to focus on this year is the quality of each page. We’re not going to rush pages to meet a weekly deadline anymore. We’ve begun to see BlackGuard in a different light and want the product to reflect that.

Another thing we have planned for this year is the launch of our store. We’re going to start small, just selling a few items, and hopefully grow from there. We still have copies of issues 2-4 of BlackGuard around that we’ll try to burn through. Plus, we have a few potential posters we’re thinking about doing. Here’s one I came up with yesterday.

We want to have the store up before the end of the month. If you have any ideas for items you want to see in the store, suggest them here.

Issue 1 of BlackGuard appeared on the digital comic site comiXology awhile ago, and to tell you the truth, all seven completed issues were supposed to be up by now, but Will and I got busy with other projects and had to delay that for some time.

But now we’re back on track and happy to announce that issue to of the comic has been accepted by comiXology Submit. We’ll let everyone know when it finally goes on sale.

In the meantime, checkout Will-s redraw of one of the first BlackGuard group pictures from six years ago! The original is on the left. That used to be the image on our old business cards.

Our last update featured some concept art showcasing the looks for the new villains appearing in the next BlackGuard story arc.  Those were cool, but if you know the BlackGuard, they don’t like to be outdone.  So of course the team has a few new looks to show off themselves.
