I love making these Marvel Universe style bio sheets, fam!
All my longtime readers will like this...
You know I LOVE making these Marvel Universe Handbook-style bios, and since he has already appeared in print, I knew I was gonna get around to doing one for MANCHILD.
I originally created MANCHILD in the early 2000s as a series of black and white hand-stapled 8 page minicomics that I sold at conventions and on my website.
After working as part of a team on an all-ages comic about child superheroes, I went crazy with MANCHILD creating an ultra-violent comic that included every idea that would never fly as part of a kids' comic. I love drawing kids being bad, so I did my best to go delightfully overboard with MANCHILD.
I pledged that every cover would have Junior holding a gun or some other clue that it was not for kids, so that parents could not say that the cartoon style misled them.
MANCHILD has a fairly complex plot and a large cast of characters, but I kept it simple for the bio. I published three 8 page chapters of MANCHILD while I was working in a call center. Then the I improved and colored them and republished them in color as episodes of my magazine GhettoManga.
As my freelancing career has taken off, I got sidetracked from making more comics.
I thought I would return to self-publishing this year, but 2020 has been 2020ing.
My plan was to do some short comics AND to release some old stuff as digital e-books, including MANCHILD. All that stuff went on the back burner. But I'm still on it, so stay tuned.
One of the compromises I've made is to make these bios as a tease to what my fans can look forward to. As I do more bios, you will definitely see more characters from MANCHILD included.
