Super Comes On Wheels

The Backstory

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.

It was more than a year later, after finishing work on The Lost City, Chico X and other Red Tempest comics, and that image and word kept coming to mind. Handicape. But what sort of hero would he be?

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!
