This project has been percolating for quite some time. First as a movie idea and now as a comic book (and perhaps then later on as a film adapted from the comic book). The story is inspired by real life martial artist Vincent Lyn, who lived like a king in Hong Kong for a number of years, banging countless chicks and playing the villain in over two dozen martial arts films, nearly having his head cracked open in the process.
He's fought Jackie Chan, Simon Yam, Donnie Yen and Cynthia Rothrock. On film, of course.
And now he's going to fight some comic book thugs and Trian Lords and get laid in between each fight.
Young Charlotte based artist Chase Conley (known as 'SaintChase' here) is illustrating this five issue limited series and as we develop the project I am going to post design sketches and then inked pages and then finally colored and lettered.
This is going to be a fun, intense, insane book. That I can promise you.
Early design work, with Vincent a bit too beefy and muscular in the first shirtless sketch. The others he looks just right. Lean and fast is what we want. Not muscle bound and slow.
There is more in post #4. Yes, there will be gratuitous sex and violence posted at some point.
