Locus The Little

Hey everyone!  I got a few great end of summer posts for you guys, starting with this smashing piece by Rubensum.  With Patricks birthday on the way, I found myself going over many ideas for him, over the last few weeks.  I had talked at length with a few artists regarding making some of the Class Comics characters and some of my own boys into Mermen.  While Rubensum was busy at work with another incredible piece, he surprised me with his version of Locus as a Merman! I couldn't think of a better pose for the Mersektans first appearance then this lovely tribute to The Little Mermaid!  Rub loves some greens and it shows here in every striking detail.  Check out that tail and that magnificent cock!  Slipper sexy with a hunky alien mermen...That's the way I want to end my summer vacation!

Of course life under the sea is not all it's cracked up to be, what with those circumcisions via crab...
Yep, that's about equal to the pain most people going back to school tomorrow are feeling....

Black, Or White Cock?

Hey guys.  Ready for the final weekend of the summer?  I have a few summery images to share this weekend.  First off I have the return of the character Crescent Tops.  Crescent is Marshalls life long friend that he met as a child.  He was featured in Marshalls indroductory image by ZipOpen years ago. He's pretty much been stuck on the sidelines since then, but with the help of Gene Lightfoot's take on him, I'm hoping to change that a bit. 

Here he is, my little moon tribe dinosaur man, sexily drawn by Gene.  He pictured him bathed in the glow of the milky way stars at an asteroid hot spring.  He's stroking an eye full out of his extra long uncut dick.  Gene did two versions of him.  I thought Gene did an incredible job on him.  He made him super buff!  Really loved the the shading and skin tones in first image especially.  One with a licorice black cock and one with a vanilla one.  Which do you guys prefer?  

Speaking of things in eyes, I'm currently suffering from a nasty eye infection.  As painful as it is, I have to sorta be thankful about getting it. Let me explain.  About a week ago, I found out through my cousin that the monsters cereals were back in Canada.  We haven't seen the likes of Franken Berry since the 80s and Count Chocula vanished from stores a few years ago.  Sadly, my favorite of all time Boo Berry is not coming back this year.  SIGH! But I will take what I can get.  The thought of tasting Franken Berry after 2 decades was enough to warrant a frantic search.  I even took a trip to the USA to find it, but it was to no avail.  Monster cereals are super popular.  People I talked to at stores told stories of them selling out within hours.  When I went to get my eye medicine, I went into the nearby grocery store (A store I would not normally go to) and was lucky enough to find one box of Franken Berry sitting all alone on a shelf.  My heart skipped a beat.  After a week of searching, I could finally taste that wonderful cereal again after 25 years!!!

I opened the box and took a big wiff.  Ah, that Strawberry smell! It smelt like childhood!! I had to have a bowl for dinner!  It was just as I remembered it, actually a little TOO like I remembered it.  I'm not 100% sure, but I believe eating this was the cause of a day long migraine headache.  As much as I loved this and Strawberry Shortcake cereal as a kid, the food coloring always made me violently ill.  It was the cause of a number of headaches when I was little.  I guess some things just don't change as you get older.  Oh well, it was worth it to feel like an 80s kid again. ^_^

3,000,0000 Page Views Celebration!

I noticed last week that we had just hit over 3 million page views.  I think that's a pretty incredible feat for our little blog.  I still can't believe that we started this 5 long years ago.  It feels like yesterday that FallenAngel and Nookiedog were sending their first sketches to me.  Sigh... Well in celebration of all this, we've got DJ Smilo ready to provide the music for a huge party in Prehistoric Paradise!  In the coming weeks I'll have other images from the party. :) 

FallenAngels image is based on a sketch I did some time ago of Smilo. I recently unearthed it and sent it to him for consideration.  This image is pure Fallen though.  So much was added from that simple sketch.  I thought the butterflies were truly brilliant.  Smilo has never looked better.  I found his eyes to be very enchanting! Very Utsukushī as he might say.  Thanks FallenAngel for 5 years of fun!  

Hard to believe that we got that many views!  Thanks for all the love guys.

Here as well, are my sketches for the Chibi Zahn and Dimata images I posted not long ago!

I don't have any music of my own for Smilo to spin, but I did find an interesting article about the top video game music that was too big for it's intended purpose.  At the top of that list was a remix of the final boss music from Sonic 3, used for a battle in Sonic Generations.  The actual track runs for almost 4 mins, while the fight only lasts less then 1.  Such a shame, given the effort put into it.  I found a couple tracks were like that in the home console version of the game as well.  This track is pretty bitchin' as is the remix for Sonic CDs Metal Sonic fight.  Rooftop Run just makes you want to dance to the beat. You can say a lot of shit about Sonic these days, but Sega has never skimmed on the quality of his music tracks.

Ira Gamagoori From Kill La Kill Has A Giant Dick

I had to name even the blog post after the outstanding dick that FallenAngel decided to bestow upon Ira. This excellent image of the bara god from Kill La Kill, is our little tribute to Maduinshorn, who had a birthday recently.  He's been drawing the characters from Kill La Kill a lot and we caught a bit of the fever from his wonderful pieces on his tumblr! Ira is certainly one of Fallens biggest built drawing to date.  Everything about him is tank like.  He would make a wild action figure.  Too bad Japan doesn' produce anything that liberal. ;D Thank you Fallen and again Happy Birthday to our dear friend Maduinshorn.

Bara Basks In The Sunlight By Lastmanouthere

Hey guys, sorry for the inactivity this week. Since last week I have been dealing with a lot of pain in my sacroiliac and leg.  It's not from what you think!!!! Anyway I'm back in the pink, I time to get on my ass again and post, right?  I got a hot treat for a sunny August afternoon, Ignatius D'Marrow by Lastmanouthere! I hope you guys love him as much as I do! :D

 Once again we find our lustful Lastman channeling the muse of some late 20th century fantasy art god, to give us some divine lines!  Iggy has never looked so big, beefy and well..bara! He's sitting on those bones, just letting it hang.  Showing of his size and dominance to those in his new found tribe of bone hunters. Bet he never thought he was be doing this while need deep in text books at the university.  I can totally relate to this relaxed image!!! I needed to relax all week and so took a lesson from Iggy. Some times you just gotta chill and enjoy the sunshine. Let the body heal and rest while you can, cause there will be plenty to fight in the future.  Thank you Lastman for drawing such a great picture and letting me share it with the world! You rock!

Iggy isn't the only one getting ready to bask in the sunshine. I bought this kick ass beach towel from Frozen today.  Lastmans image certainly helped spur my purchase of this.  I was at Wal-Mart and picked up a couple cool things actually. I got two nice sets of Guardians of the Galaxy stickers. I got one for my buddy I saw the movie with last week. I enjoyed the movie more then him, but he seems to be licking it more then when he initially saw it, for some reason.  (I think it's the soundtrack.)  I grabbed some cool Pac-Man pants, some nice Angry Birds pens and a couple Simpsons Comics. Ms. K is still alive and well in the comic books, which is nice. I took some pictures to show them off.  I really bought the towel for my mom. She loves the movie. XD Does any woman out there NOT love it?

That's it for me for today, but tomorrow I got a Kill La Kill image and a beach party picture coming up the day after that.  I'm off to give my buddy those stickers now.  See ya boys.

Satyrs Know How To Party

Yesterday was Yelmos birthday.  I asked FallenAngel help make him an extra special birthday greeting.  We couldn't pick just one of his legendary Satyrs, so of course we used both. Bakkhos has the cake and the Fared has the wine.  Both have lovely muscles and huge uncut cocks at the ready, just in case Yelmo would rather have meat first rather then pastry.  FallenAngel really gave this a super anime promotional image feel.  It's like something from anime video game instruction booklet, or a poster calendar. With a calendar hunks like this, every day would be a birthday party. 
Happy Birthday Yelmo!

Muscular Man Of Peace Meztliyaotl‏

Hello guys, as promised here is todays Lastmanouthere post.  We welcome a new character into the kingdom today. His name is Meztliyaotl‏.  Set to eventually interact with Ixy and Nehme, not as a warrior, but as an ambassador of the Aztecs. With that giant snake hanging between his legs, I am sure he can charm anyone!  That's not to say he uses his sexual powers and physical strength to get his way.  In spite of his looks, he is not so much a warrior. He is a learned young man, being both a scholar and a linguist.  He's hoping to bridge peace between three cultures.  (All at the same time, doing his best to guide the naive young Aztec prince.)  I can't give much more away regarding his story then that at the moment!  Meztliyaotl‏ is probably quite the opposite of the stereotypical Aztec people have in their minds. 
Lastmanouthere has once again created a gorgeous vision of a man and adorned him with a costume that perfectly complements his natural beauty.  I really like the way he posed him and the expression on his face.  I think it gives it a very period look, like something from an old painting you would see in a museum, or very old history book.  Bravo Lastman for capturing that. :D  I cannot wait to start having some fun with him myself! Hee hee!

Later tonight, I will be posting some art that FallenAngel drew for Yelmos birthday, which was yesterday.  So go say happy birthday to him, if you haven't already! ;D  I'm going to be posting after I watch Guardians of the Galaxy.  Aneros assures me, it's one of the best movies of the summer.  We shall see!  Right now though, I got a lasagna in the oven that needs my attention.  Later guys.

Zahn's Sweet Treat

I hear it's gonna be a scorching hot weekend coming up.  Hot weather is never a worry for the Son of Winter. He always has the ability create ice and snow.  Having such a large crew now, he's come up with a clever way to beat the heat and feed his friends.  He's the solution was simple. Using his magic to make ice cream.  Don't ask where he gets the flavor, or the cones though. ;D  Anything is possible in fantasy.  And this image was made possible by StudioKawaii.  The second and for the time being, final image they created for me. 
See you guys tomorrow with some Lastmanouthere and FallenAngel stuff.  It's gonna be a party weekend!

RPG Dimata To The Rescue!

RPG Dimata rushes to the rescue of his baby brachiosaurus friend. The juvenile carnotaurus didn't know what hit him! Dimata may look all soft and cute, but even in chibi form he packs a wallop! 

Here for your enjoyment today I have the first of two chibi drawings done for me by twin team of Studiokawaii. That's right, I had the extreme pleasure of working with the acclaimed team behind the beloved yaoi manga series Treasures! The first gay manga I ever bought! :D
They were so great to work with. Everything went super smoothly, with fast updates, friendly communication! Being so professional in their communication and what they present on pager, I can't recommend them enough.

 The second volume of Treasures, of which I proudly own and recommend!

It's the August Civic Holiday here in Canada, so I have lots of free time on my hands for once!  I hope that you guys are having a great day.

Space Cadet #2 Review....Cantero Does Cadet!

Well, the other week marked the end of a 4 year wait to see what lies next in the story of Space Cadet.  Space Cadet is a hero in the Class Comics universe, who was first featured with Naked Justice and Ghost Boy, before branching out into his own comic line in 2010.  The story presented to us in book 2, was not quite here the sequel to THE TEMPERING WAY you may have been waiting so long for.  Fans that caught some of the update posts have known that the story would go in a new direction for months now. This helped soften the blow, as we were told things would change, but no cast members were going to be given the axe. Those that didn't keep up are in for a bit of a shock. So what did happen to the old cast?  Where is this story going now?  Is this story a worthy 'sequel'?  How does it effect Byrons recent adventures along with Ghost Boy and Diablo? Here are my thoughts on the second installment of Space Cadet.

The story here starts with Byron having fever dreams about his adventures in Ordovica. We get a couple nice pages of back story.  We are reminded of the characters and plot introduced within the first book, before witnessing Byrons ultimate fate.  That is, it seems, the young man may have failed horribly.  I could be wrong, but this is something that gets reiterated by his guilty conscience bring up these visions with more and more furry as the story goes on. We see him captured and totured, calling out to his friends.  He snaps back awake.  Startled by such a terrible dream, he does what most people do after having drems of this kind: He blames the whole thing on watching too many fantasy TV shows and movies.   Too much Game of Porns, I'de wager.  Of course we the reader know the events are real and Byron is just not fully aware of that yet.  (He won't be for the remainder of the book.)  And so as Byron brushes that bad dream away, so do the writers.  We leave the world of Ordovica and begin a new adventure for Space Cadet.

Space Cadet is a Star Wars fan I see...Nice little Easter Egg! ;D

Byron is now living back at home with his parents, to help tend to his wounded mother. (A lady who looks like she could pass for being his sister.  And no I am not trying to get into her good graces, by saying that!) We are quickly introduced to his skinny, but way better hung brother Sheldon in yet another Class Comics scene which suggests a little incest may soon be coming our way.  I say better hung, but this could just have been an inconsistency in the drawing of his cock from panel to panel.  Sheldons cock looks longer and thinner then Byrons thick dick to me, especially as Sheldons cock is show flaccid besides Byrons full hard on. Hmmm a nerdy brother named called Sheldon, couldn't possibly be a nod to the Big Ban theory could it? :P  Hee hee!  Thankfully Sheldon is not anything like the famous TV character his name may be inspired by! (WHEW.)

 Brotherly Love?

Getting back to the story... Byrons fever dreams were pretty hot and heavy and he stuck with a major hard on.  This calls for an early morning jerk off, that is interrupted by his bother.  His brother Sheldon sees him going at it and decides to tackle him by jumping right on top of his big brother and his boner. Coming in full contact with his bros massive dick is pretty fucking hot. His own dick has a hard time NOT poking out of his long boxer shorts leg, he is so well hung.  In order to teach his brother a lesson about closing his door while doing such things, he even goes so far as to whack on Byrons cock with his palm a bit.  Cadet rips the shorts off his bother in the process of trying to get away from Sheldons onslaught. They are both stopped by their father, who scolds them.  (They have a six year old sister in the house.  She doesn't need to stumble across such things!)   It was great to see Byrons pops again, as we haven't seen him over half a decade.  He only had a short appearance in Strip Tease.  I wonder how hung he is? (Blushes.)

Byron then proceeds to have a shower and take care of his raging hormones.  Now, if you are thinking, this is where his brother and dad both join him in the shower, think again.  Nope, this is where we get a classic Cantero running gag inserted, which feels a bit like it was inspired by a certain Eddie Murphy movie about a certain professor. :P  It's really funny stuff.  The message in these first few pages seems clear to me.  The time has come to stop acting like the star of a never ending porn and more like a regular person there Byron.  You're living with loves ones now Mr. Cadet and you have forgotten about personal boundaries. You gotta lock your doors if you want to play with yourself!!! 

 Yes Space Cadet has gone from grand fantasy adventure to super hero sitcom.  And honestly I like it a  hell of a lot! There's lots of naughtiness and really hot secret sex that can happen in the home setting. Giving Byron obstacles to over come and characters that may tempt him beyond his regular sexual boundaries (ie incest) is all stuff that will grow his character.  Giving him a family enriches his world and his life.  Instead of a pin up, or just I guy out for an adventure, we get a chance at a better understanding of who he is, where he comes from and how he interacts with people who he doesn't actually just want to have sex with for once. It's a good thing. Let's face it, you know it's only a matter of time before fantasy, sci-fi and all that good stuff get's injected into the mix, so this setting won't dominate even if you are not a fan of it.  With Canteros fun and playful art style, I feel like I am reading a Disney Afternoon show in print form.  I'm all for more comical adventures featuring the Cadet family, even without Byron.

Having this home setting instead of a hall of heroes, or a secret layer, is far more relatable. (Dare I say more enjoyable?)  With a family in tow, you have potential for a much more diverse story then you could with just fuck buddies.  But let me not get too ahead of myself.  This is potential only for now.  Home was just the launching point.  As soon as breakfast is done, Byron is off to a new job and new adventures.  I really like that the story mentions the job he had in his introductory story.  Maybe the porn star he worked for as a bodyguard will return one day. For now it's off to the Horny Devil Underwear studios for a photo shoot.  This is interesting for a couple reasons.  #1, it has been stated the Cadet grew up with his family in NYC, but unless he is using his Jetpack to get to work, his family is clearly living in Gateway City. So for those of us that assumed we were in for some fun in the big apple, think again.  That's okay though. I like that all the Class Characters (even Zahn it seems) have ties to this city. It's like Classes Metropolis, or Duckburg. (Though, with far less fucking then there would be in a city consisting purely of ducks.

Anyway the second he gets there he's winds up super inspiring the best photographer in the company.  (I know that feeling with Cadet oh so well!)  This leads to some hot poses, but not actual sex with Diablo who is also working that day.  Looks like his job is pretty secure, even before what happens next.  During what happens after shoot, that the story once again references the plot of the first issue.  Byron starts to have visions of his past.  Friends start to take the shape of familiar faces and Byron is left with a lot of questions.  Questions we all have and are eagerly awaiting the answers to, as we have been for some time now.

 Those answers will have to wait as Byron upon leaving work, reunites with some old school friends. (Old in the case of 22 year old Cadet being people has hasn't seen in like 4 years.)   This is where things get exciting!  An old high school friend named Justin appears.  Justin looks like he has some anime inspiration behind his design. I couldn't help but think of Kingdom Hearts Sora when I first got a look at him!   Justin introduces Space Cadet to another hero named Golden Boy.  The two of them hit it off immensely immediately in one of the most passionate and powerful love making scenes to come out this year.  They hit off by not only being physically attracted by each other, but seduced by the mystery and allure of being with another person with a secret identity.  (Someone they can fully relate to.) It's already inspired animated fan art from Gene Lightfoot!  Their love making is cut short, when they are called to help a friend in need.  What follows is a wonderfully drawn battle by Cantero.  A huge battle along side Golden Boy with just as much power behind the panels as the love making segments.

Space Cadet and Golden Boy Boner bump, revealing they are interested in more then one mystery about each other then their super powers.

I love the fact that the boner bumping continues as they undress and talk more about their super hero status.  The two cocks are like dowsing rods, attracted more and more to each other with each piece of clothing that falls and piece of information that is passed between them!

Gene Lightfoots animated image that was inspired by the scene that followed.  (You will have to buy the book to see these hot pages yourself!!!) 

Some random thoughts:

-Either Byrons friend Justin has moved to Gateway City seeking his help, or the whole NYC upbringing has been dropped at this point. It was, as far as I can recall never mentioned in a comic anyway.  The only mention was in an online profile, so I can see this happening. I'm for making all the characters Canadian! LOL. Gateway is a Canadian city isn't it?  hmmmm more research needed. XD

-Okay, look Mr. Fillon and crew, I am getting freaking brotherly love blue balls from all the teasing of fathers and sons and now bothers, having these naughty situations and nothing happening!!!  With all the dick touching and bondage it's driving me crazy!!!  This is my first honest to goodness complaint about the book! LOL! It wouldn't be so bad if this wasn't the third time in less then a year that we have been presented a situation like this.  First was Peter and his father, then Cam and his father (which I will admit went pretty far.)  Now we have Sheldon and Byron naked wrestling! I'm gonna explode over here!!!
 Yes I know we have the twins in Mako Finn and the two Vargas Twin Books by Logan.  Those are both amazing examples.  The thing is, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say, we want to see some main cast members doing something Taboo!   It's just getting a little frustrating!  JUST A LITTLE! LOL! ^__^  We want to catch that carrot dangling in front of our heads.   I always hold out hope for something in the future, but the future has come and we are still left with these wonderful teases!!!  Leave them wanting more and then when it does come, the pay off is so much better...I wonder if this is the plan?  

Oh don't give us that face Cadet!  We all know you have been thinking about Sheldon while playing with yourself in the shower! Admit it!!! XD

One thing about Class Comics, much like Marvel and DC, stories are often thrown out around various time lines, so anything can happen.  Someone might be at deaths door in a cliff hanger, but be fully fine in the next short story we are given, which takes place months, or years prior. (See the new Locus book for an example of that.)   Sadly what we were lacking over the last 4  years was Strider and Vallan, who haven't appeared in one Strip Show, or spin off!   (Though some of their co-stars have.)  So that being the case, the lack of them in this book made it all the more daunting .  :(

My second complaint is a real one.  It has something to do with the art.  It's something that I have been wanting to address since I first started reading Canteros work for Class Comics. It is simply that, despite how well he draws men, how beautiful they are, how amazingly he does faces, hair, facial expressions, poses, muscles, legs and chests, one feature often gets thrown to the side.  That is the foreskin.  I'm not talking about the actual dicks here.  David does some fantastic circumcised penises.  Some of the best of the business.  I am only addressing his foreskins. 

I think it first really bothered me when I was reading the scene where Incubus fucks Byron in Ghost Boy and Diablo #2.  This is because we were not dealing with his original characters, but one that had been well established as uncut.  So I was looking at Incubus with different eyes then I would his own OCs.  When I look at Byron and Eric, I shouldn't be drawing the conclusion that both are circumcised.  Now I am not saying he hasn't drawn some great foreskins.  He has and you will see them in Ghost Boy and Diablo #3, this book and many other places as well.  My gripe is that all too often they are forgotten.  They are not consistently drawn from panel to panel.  It's usually most apparent once the penis becomes fully hard.  Once erect, they have a tenancy to vanish.  As a foreskin fan I have a problem with that.  I have been a huge fan of Davids since the first moment I saw his art in a tiny thumbnail many years ago.  The ambitiousness of his characters cut and uncut status has always bugged me though.  You may even argue that the lines below the head of cut characters could be interpreted as foreskin as well. As they slide off to the side, much in the shape of a pulled back foreskin. As he is now doing so much for Class I feel I should speak my mind about it a bit.  
Just looking at the cover of this book, can you tell that Godlen Boy is uncut?  I cannot. When I see how exceptionally well he does all other aspects, I can't help but think that applying that talent to just a couple lines here can't be hard for such a skilled hand to do. (As mentioned he certainly has the power to given what is on display in other works.)

 A gorgeously drawn, thick leathery foreskin adorns Emmo in this panel from Ghost Boy and Diablo #3.  It's panels like this frustrated me when I see him ignore foreskins entirely.

I hate to say it, but some times they can feel and look like an after thought.   Like the skin was forced, reluctantly placed over an already drawn phallus. I don't know if he does this due to the size of the panels, if he hates foreskins, or that he doesn't feel they are important.  Maybe it is done to save a little time.  I really hope that this will changed in future works, because the times he does put the effort in, the foreskins can look absolutely fantastic.

You know, with all the side stories it probably will be confusing for some fans to try to figure out when this sequel is supposed to take place.  My best guess is that this book happens sometime before the events of Diablo and Ghost Boy #1.  Probably in between Boytoon Adventures and the 7 Days story featuring Diablo. (As Diablo is still working for the underwear company and his boss hasn't been revealed to be a total shit head yet.)  Though I could be wrong.  Maybe after the deaths of all the models on staff (or was it that they were just beaten unconscious by School Girl?) in GB & Diabloe 1 he had a change of heart? 
Peter finding out that Brunos boss Lavollay had inside information about who was holding Bruno captive marked him as horribly suspicious to me.  I couldn't see Diablo going back to work for this guy.
Maybe after all that happened, he made the Horny Devil Underwear Company survived by changing his ways?  Diablo stayed on bored, when Lavollay he had that change of character and became a kinder more loving boss.  I can see it happening.  Going from someone in a position of power, controlling men with no conscious, to almost losing everything, can certainly change a man!    For those that don't know, he was the kind of bastard where black mailing Peter suck his dick to give Peter information he should be giving freely, (information that could save someones life) was something he enjoyed doing.  What a douche...A hot douche...BUT a douche, nonetheless.  
Anyway I guess it is safe to say that even my best guess could be wrong and this whole thing might happen even after the current GB and D story arch.

-I wonder if this will lead to an adventure of Space Cadet set in space?  Why am I seeing the family living with alien neighbors in my mind and laughing at all the crazy shit that could happen, cause of that setting? XD


Look to say I was not disappointed when I found out that the adventures set in Space Cadet #1 were not going to be been fully dealt with would be an understatement.  Waiting for 4 years while a plot sat in limbo would be frustrating for any fan. Had we gotten a second comic that didn't addresses the plot of the last book at all, I would have been pissed.  Had Strider and Vallen simply been written off that would have been pretty heartbreaking. Patrick and Fraser were smart to address the issues they had over the years on their sites, so we had a feeling things might not go as planned in book two.  That helped soften the blow.  Even when the drastic change from fantasy to super hero story was announced, they were kind enough to let us know that they were never giving up on the past story for good.  This was great, because I hate to think that all the negative people had such an effect that Patrick would throw away his vision.  I don't want Class Comics future dictated by a bunch of angry fan boys.  >___<

One thing that really helped make those years of waiting feel a lot shorter was the fact that Space Cadet has been given small roles and cameos in monthly Strip Show comics and the Diablo and Ghost Boy Series.  It's not like we had a lack of him, thankfully!  His constant presence reminded us that he wasn't going anywhere, even if his main adventure had been put on hold.

Patrick had mentioned wanting to draw the book himself.  Years ago, he spoke of the centaur kingdom and of course that got me excited.  I don't give up hope that we will see more of Vallan and Strider.  You can tell that there will be more of them in future issues and that's a great thing.  With David at the drawing table, you know you won't be waiting long for book three.  That man pumps out art old school fast.   I swear he could be doing these things on a monthly basis based on the what Patrick has told me about his speed!

I wouldn't mind seeing our mythological men in a Strip Show. ;D  Comics are much more flexible medium then animation.  We never know what to expect. Things can change very quickly.  For now though, I have to say that any disappointment I felt when I first got the news, was overshadowed greatly by the wonderful adventure and characters in this second issue.

 In this gorgeously drawn Strip Show comic by Jacob Mott and Patrick, we see Zahn interacting with Samm from Space Cadet #1.  Here's hoping Vallan and Strider get a Strip Show of this caliber sometime in the future!  Maybe they too will meet up with Zahn and friends!

I admit it, just as I had with the Ghost Boy& Diablo series, I got lost in the pages of Canteros wonderful art.  His snappy character designs (whether main, or background) are always such a great treat.  There is a lot of fun humor to the book, including some running gags that seem to carry from comic, to comic.  He does some wild fight scenes and even wilder sex scenes.  All the new cast members are fantastic. The digital copy has a large collection of his sketches, including a few showing the slight evolution of Byrons Family.  (You will notice some name changes among other things.) 

Golden Boy is a beautiful new hero with a lot of potential.  We don't know too much about him at the moment.  I am still waiting for 'Golden Boy' to live up to his name, if you know what I mean!  LOL!  David Cantero has helped create a funny, sexy, vibrant world for Byron to have fun in.  Byron looks super hot drawn by him, in case you were wondering.  To say he does justice to the character is an understatement.  He has a real talent and drawing various characters of different nationalities and here (as if he hasn't in the past) he shows his marvelous ability at drawing beautiful black men. From big beefy Byron, to his swimmers build brother, every panel featuring these guys is drool worthy.  If you want to see even more of his gorgeous Nubian nudes, you really owe it to yourself to start reading the Ghost Boy and Diablo series.

The few images we do get that feature Vallan and Strider are magnificent. There's a bit of an anime influence in the way he draws Vallan, much like Justin does.  He draws him super cute and a bit younger then he looks in previous comics.  I love it!  I really think fans will enjoy this comic immensely.

So what is my final score?  I would say that Space Cadet #2 continues the fine (albeit new) tradition on amazing comics written by Patrick Fillion and drawn masterfully by David Cantero.  Beside some of the above gripes I totally loved it several times now, if you catch my drift!!!
