Several years ago, I was taking a summer van ride with a friend to see the latest superhero movie. I was driving and my friend, in a wheelchair, rode passenger side. As the conversation wandered through topics of movies and heroes, an image and a single word came to mind. The image was one of a guy in a wheelchair with a superhero’s cape. The word: Handicape.
Denver Comic Con, the first convention for Red Tempest, came and went and came and went again. Superheroes filled the convention center, but there was still a void. I continued working on Handicape, drawing the logo and some concept sketches, and piecing together the story.
Then, in late 2012, those pieces fell into place. A superhero, in a wheelchair, whose power was controlling anything with electricity—specifically, he would be a computer hacker.
Now, in 2016, the final pages have started to come together. I’ve decided to post the story online in its mostly un-edited form. Read and enjoy. And if you enjoyed Handicape and would like to support it, as well as our future stories, you can spread the word and buy a premium, edited and refined copy of the graphic novel, coming first to Kickstarter this Spring of 2016, and then to the world at Denver Comic Con.
Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback!
