Slab's First Fist 15: Hormone Surge

DB has ingested Slab's pooberty fists and the results are obvious!His whole body is swelling with the raging hormones of youth. He is adding strength to his already impressive MMA skills!
He throws a punishing blow to Slab, knocking his head clear off! This could be bad for the younger opponent!
Slab's in trouble! Donald has achieved full mount position!
Oh My God! He's punishing the kid! It's a merciless onslaught of flying feathered fists! Slab's not intelligently defending himself! This is just sheer senseless violence! This is not what this sport is about!
Say, who's that climbing over the fence??!
Why, it's BIG JOHN - the world's greatest MMA ref!
No one sees more or reacts quicker than John. He lunges at the foes and separates them.
It's over, it's over! Big John has stopped the fight!

Slab is outraged! The fans are booing! This could be a controversial stoppage!

to be continued....

Hi John, have you seen this webcomic article on Cartoon Brew?
http://www.cartoonbrew.com/comics/jason-brubakers-remind.html

This will be a good format for your new blog. Remember you said that you wanted a format that is more like your old Spumco site?

I'm moving my comic over to Word Press soon as well. Here is a list of pros and cons the author of the webcomic devised as well.

I dig the "who is it" turning head reaction shot close up.

RooniMan said...

YEAH! More flying fists of fury!

Mitch K said...

HAHAHA Incredible.

Cotton Gin said...

DB kinda reminds me of younger Kevin Randleman... for some reason.

CJ said...

These are awesome, John.

I will admit, and don't get me wrong as I love the gestures and emotion in your work, I initially didn't admire the first few pages, but I've grown to really love them. And this one is perhaps in my top three of this conceptual piece.

Also! I broke down and decided to partake in your Cartoon College. I knew I always needed it, but didn't realize how bad. I don't have a lot to show right now, but think you could give your opinions on this? Anything that comes to mind is always welcome! As long as it keeps me moving forward. :)

So how old is Donald Bastard?

Operation GutterBall said...

John, I want to work on an MMA short with you! 7 minutes long , with Cauliflower eared palookas!

Hey! (Offtopic) What happened with the "search toolbar"? It was very useful!
I was looking for a Fleischer´s cartoon: "Hunky and Spunky".

JohnK said...

There's a search at the top right

but I don't think I have done any Hunky and Spunky cartoons

they have beautiful layouts and backgrounds

but boy, those voices...

JohnK said...

I mean top LEFT

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Haw! I LOVE this story! You've gotta make it a cartoon. or at least get it into print!

Lohen said...

Ouh, thanks... I´m an absent-minded guy.
I love when they are laughing... And what about the music? Beautiful!

CJ said...

I agree with Eddie. Make this a comic!

You should do that with all of your notepad pieces. They'd be great shorts and I would totally purchase a book of them if you ever did so.

Benjamin Anders said...

That first page with Donald Bastard is really funny and well done! Loving this story and can't wait for the next installment.

thistler said...

The hormone duck and Big John remind me a lot of Roger Ramjet. It must be the expressions or something. It would be awesome to see this made into a RR style short!

He's the Magnificent Seven all in one!
