Time for one of my Rambling Explanations! Woo-Hoo!
"AMIGOS!" started out as me just messing around with some artwork, which turned into a webcomic designed exclusively for my Patreon Supporters, which turned into a massive epic that I'm really excited about.
For years I had been attempting to develop the Mickey/Donald/Goofy of the TORCverse (or if that's not Geek enough for you, the Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman). I already had my Flagship Character, Cactus Joe the Clown, but I didn't have two successful Solo Characters who could match him. I finally achieved success with this Quest a few years back with the creation of the Death Moth and Octopus Jones. Between the three of them, I finally had that spectrum I needed. God/Devil/Mortal. Positive/Negative/Neutral. Light/Dark/Medium. They were perfect. They worked great as solo acts, and they worked great together.
So, I found myself wanting to tell a big epic story with these guys, beyond the realm of my Flagship Book "7 Worlds". AMIGOS!!! became that story. Each issue of Amigos focuses on a different member of my little Trio. Issue 1 stars Octopus Jones, Issue 2 the Death Moth, and Issue 3 The Clown. If I can keep this going, Issue 4 will restart the pattern, focusing on Octopus Jones, and so on and so forth until I have told the story I plan to tell.
The Octopus Jones Issue of AMIGOS!!! (aka Issue 1) is currently exclusive to Patreon Subscribers (only a buck a month...), and new pages drop every Monday like Clockwork. Meanwhile, on Thursday, a new page of either Issue 2 (featuring the Death Moth) or Issue 3 (featuring the Clown & the Clown's eternal companion, Pengy Penguin) will be released here on the TORC Press BLOG.
So, there you go. Now for Issue 2, Page 1:
