Monday Comics – Fantasy Comic THE EVER ZONE pt 2

Week 15 of Hypertransitory Monday Comics is here, featuring part 2 of my Fantasy and Sci-Fi themed comic The Ever Zone!


Click here if you missed last week’s Monday Comics debut of The Ever Zone – then get back here for part 2!

Time and space have existed for eons without too much trouble…until now. Some unknown force has torn a hole in the fabric of space-time. Inside is an apparently endless zone that can and does connect everywhere with everywhere.

JG Creator Notes

Well this might be the loooooongest comic yet! Even longer than previous Monday Comic ‘The Commander Series’ pt 3!

Initially this one was actually 3 pages long, but I decided to combine it into one long page as that seems to be more convenient for everyone. I decided to stop worrying about the wildly disparate sizes/formats of these comics. As long as it doesn’t get in the way of people enjoying them then so be it. Whoot, there it is.

So last week in the story we had Flinn and Jaiya -two good characters wandering the Zone.

Now we have Vizron and VeraNyne, two evil characters obviously up to no good. You can say whatever you want about them, just don’t insult their masters!

I actually did a character design piece over a year ago on my process of creating Vizron. Those of you interested in some “technical art” stuff should head over there and check that out.

Here’s an image from that post – there’s more to be seen over there.



Finally, here’s the raw pencil from this episode. As I mentioned above, I originally did this in 3 pages, so there’s 3 images. I didn’t see any need to combine them, but once again you can take a look and get a sense of the process (ie how much is drawn and how much is photoshop).

Enjoy and let me know what you guys think in the comments!

  1. Hey John,

    I’ve got a question for you. Where do you come up with this stuff? How do you come up with the characters, what they’ll look like, what happens between them, everything! You must have one huge imagination my friend. I so admire you for your talent. Not only can you draw but you come up with so many different stories. I’m definitely impressed.

    1. Hi Adrienne!

      Well, I think it comes from so much reading. Comic books pretty much taught me how to read, so I was always thinking “what if X had happened instead of Y?”

      And then when I’m drawing a character, I have to imagine why the character is in the pose/scene/situation they’re in.

      It just kind of branched out from there to making my own stories up. Trust me I have a million of ’em that haven’t seen the light of day yet :)

      Thanks for the compliment, it means a lot coming from you!

  2. LOL, who will destroy who in the end, we will see….in the meanwhile, lets see what will happen with the lady from the last comic.

    Amazing draws! :)

    1. Hi Eleonora, It could be a toss-up who destroys who. Don’t worry we’ll get back to Jaiya from the first episode next week!

    1. I suspect she will look something like the security guy from the 1980’s Flash Gordon movie. Remember when Prince Baron ripped off his sunglasses and they all collapsed? Good times…

  3. I must say that your pencil art is exceptionally good. May be besides doing comic books you should try to get into the animated cartoons

    1. Thanks, Randall! I’d love to see some of this animated some day, but I don’t know if I’d want to be the one doing it lol

    1. Thanks Ryan! That guy is scary looking isn’t he? Luckily it looks like he’s getting the heck out of there…

  4. John!!!

    You Da Man!

    Some publishing company needs to advance you a couple a bucks so you can spend all your waking hours creating this Epic Stuff ;)

    Or the SyFy channel should, I don’t know…DO something to keep this going.
    I’m beginning to appreciate the passion of the artsy-fartsy for their Cezannes. LOL

    Great story!



    1. Yeah I took this up with a couple of syndicates and publishers and for some strange reason they declined. Imagine that!

      I also suggested that SyFy should stop running those terrible movies and put up a couple of jpegs of my cartoons for an hour. No response. I guess they just don’t want the ratings lol…

    1. Hi Eugene, thanks man!

      I might have to go for five or six parts on this one. Normally I’d try to keep these things to a month, but there might be more story than that here. I’m glad you enjoy it!

  5. No, I’ll destroy you! No you won’t, I’ll destroy you! Kids! lol

    Strange, almost like a lover’s quarrel, or a couple of born-again Christians from different sects discussing why their version of God is more legitimate. I see bloody stuff coming; I hope there’s explosions.

    1. Hey Mitch,

      that whole thing kind of evolved as I was drawing up the panels, lol. I hadn’t thought of it that way, but your description is really apt.

      I think we can expect at least one explosion coming up, my friend!

  6. I am sure that my daughter who is a fashion designer with a passion for comic characters would enjoy seeing your work.

  7. Haha, brilliant comic, I’ve loved the first 2, time for the 3rd :). Your drawings are really good by the way. I like drawing comics too, I’m nowhere near as good though.

  8. May be besides doing comic books you should try to get into the animated cartoons..almost like a lover’s quarrel, or a couple of born-again Christians from different sects discussing why their version of God is more legitimate. I see bloody stuff coming; I hope there’s explosions.

  9. I wish I could draw like you! All I can do is sit on the floor and maybe come up with a rough storyboard. I can never get past that, since I try to excuse myself with drafting more plots and variations.

  10. Wow! I love your work… It has been my childhood dream to draw or illustrate cartoon characters but I really have no talent with this. Congratulations JG!

  11. I hate drawing since I was young. I’ve been searching on how to draw but I can’t do it with myself alone. With that sense, I have no any talent of drawing.

    1. Hi Darlene, it can be frustrating when the drawings don’t come out how you planned. It even happens to me, so I know what you mean.

      If you keep doing it you will definitely develop a style all your own. Keep it up you never know what could happen! Thanks for commenting :)

  12. I was kind of on the edge of my seat with this one! Cause of the fighting and stuff, I mean. But then I had to laugh out loud with the last panel. “I will destroy you!” “No, I will destroy you!” Haha. Love it!
