Look! This is a rarity for the FAIL bin... a comic I did entirely by myself!


Oh... oh god... stop looking...

In 2004, an indie comic company by the name of GeekPunk was looking for mini-comics (see: physically small comics) to publish. They put out the call, and I answered... knowing my artwork was sub-par to say the least. I'd been burned by so many illustrators, which continues to this day, that I figured I'd take a shot at drawing this most recent project myself.

"Dead Justice" was the story of a super-hero who was also a zombie. This was before Marvel Zombies, and before zombies in general were super-hot-crap. The idea was that super-heroes are always coming back from the dead, but for Mr. Justice, the title character, this resurrection process was a bit less than one would hope for.

The writing was a bit awkward as well, mostly because I made up a lot of the dialogue as I was inking the pages. :P


I'm semi-proud of the project at this point, mostly because it's just so weird without any shred of self-doubt. It just slathers you in inexplicable and grins eerily for the duration.

Highlights include worms that talk like pirates for no real reason, and two grown men (one of them dead) sharing a bath.


Yes, there actually is no explanation for this.

In the end, GeekPunk decided not to do the mini-comics at all. If you can believe it, Dead Justice was one of the approved titles. In light of the approval, I drew up several issues rapid-fire style.

You can read them all here, though I don't expect you to enjoy them, per say.

Issue 1:
COVER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

Issue 2:
COVER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

Issue 3:
COVER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

Issue 4:
COVER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14


There was an issue 5, halfway completed when the cancellation hit. It actually would've tied together the previous issues with a second showdown between Mr. Justice and the mystery villain who killed him.

That wasn't the last appearance of Mr. J, however, as I did another short comic some years later.

Issue Z:
COVER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15


Mr. Justice would also go on to appear in a long-running webcomic, Escapeman, which I began in the last 90s and ended in 2009. That, however, is an entirely different FAIL altogether!

If I should live until I wake, I pray the web my death to fake.
