I want to start this blog off by saying yes, Will and I are aware the last chapter of BlackGuard ended back in December of 2014, and we know this has been the longest amount of time that’s ever passed between updates since we started this comic, but there is good reason for the delay. We haven’t abandoned the project, and the long awaited return of the underdog super hero team of outcasts is in under development right now.
The picture at the top of this page is a promo piece Will did in the style of The Gorillaz’ Demon Days album cover for the BlackGuard’s return. This is the first in a series of pictures re-imagining classic groups of four with the members of the team.
Of course, as with every new chapter, we’re thinking of some new character designs. Below is a few new takes on Afia Melanin’s look.
We also have Doome and Odan with some new gear.
And just for the hell of it, here’s a topless Jonnie Staples.
