A new bio for my most popular character.

All my longtime readers will like this...

Hey fam,

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.

Remember when you thought 2020 was gonna be awesome? 

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.
