Ages ago, a fractured segment of Humankind found themselves thrown across the universe. Frightened and alone, they received no kindness from the beings who claimed the worlds they now inhabited. After centuries of oppression and struggle, Humankind now rules this space, and the Titans are the power that allow them to do so...

TITAN LAW 027

No materials, substances, weapons, energy sources or beings (sentient or otherwise) shall be transported into or through Titan-Space without permission from The One Titan. Upon discovery of contraband, on-site permission may be granted by any member of Titan-Guard as they see fit (The One Titan may overrule this as he sees fit).

Punishment for minor infractions will be at the discretion of discovering Titan. Punishment for weapons or trafficking in sentient beings is death. No exceptions. Last statements may or may not be made at the discretion of discovering Titan.

Method of execution to be determined by on-site Titan. In egregious cases the pleasure of execution will belong to The One Titan.

Ignorance of Titan Law will not be tolerated. Claims of ignorance will be verified via telepathic scan. False claims are punishable by death, no matter the level of infraction.

Citizens, do not find yourselves on the wrong side of Titan Law.

Titans|Divinity

So what the heck is this? Well, this is a sci-fi story I’ve had kicking around in my head for years. I finally decided to just do this thing.

The Titans are a force of peacekeepers, essentially. I guess a close equivalent would be DC Comics’ Green Lantern Corps, although they Titans are not quite as friendly as the GL’s. They’re very, very far away from Earth, with essentially no hope of ever getting back there, so they have to make do where they are.

Oh, and actually Titans|Divinity is a novel, not a comic.

Everyone knows I’m into comics, but they likely don’t know I’m into sci-fi. I mean, I love this stuff. I love the crazy ideas, the wild imaginings some of the creators have come up with over the years.

It doesn’t have to be based on real physics, I’m cool with miracle technology as well, bring it on.

For those of you who like a little sci-fi but don’t do more than dip a toe in, try out one of these Year’s Best Science Fiction Short Story Collections (aff. link). This is a bunch of truly excellent stories by some of the greatest sci-fi authors out there today. I guarantee at least one story will blow your mind.

But anyway, back to me…Titans|Divinity is something I plan to throw my all into. I’ve been working on a ton of 3D art, trying to up my game to make the kind of images that will really do these characters justice.

Along the way, I was trying new techniques and I thought to myself “I could actually make a comic out of these guys”. And so the circle was complete. I never meant for this to be a comic, but here it is. These short episodes will be companion pieces to the upcoming novel, where the main story will play out. By then, anyone who sticks around will already know a few things about the characters and their world.

4-PANEL ACTION

There haven’t been any sequential comics on here for awhile, and I’m looking forward to providing something weekly. But here’s the thing…they gotta be 4 panels or less.

In the past the comics I’ve shown here on the site have been fairly long and involved. Much of this has to do with the fact that I don’t have any editor or restrictions, so I usually just keep drawing until the story is done, no matter how long it takes.

Now, I’m trying to tell this story 4 panels at a time. I’m not sure I can do this in a way that makes sense to everyone, but we’ll see.

DUX 3D ACTION

The character introduced in this comic is named Dux. He’s something of a no-nonsense type, but many of the Titans will be that way, especially when dealing with non-humans.

Here’s a few shots of Dux in my 3D programs and also a couple I made up just for fun:

You can see that I use the very same models to create the comic and also to make the more realistic looking images. It’s mostly a matter of how I render them.

The Wrap Up

Ok, I’m going to try to keep these short and sweet. If you have any thoughts on this first comic or anything else just let me know, I’d love to hear it. And if you think someone else might like it then please share, I’d definitely appreciate it. You can either use the embed code at the top, or any of the social links below.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you guys next time!

    Hey John,

    4-panel works for me. I read pretty much anything you write and draw!

    Cheers,

    Mitch
