This is one my favorite comix I’ve produced to date, starring JTR3 and me from our sci-fi rock band Americans UK, and co-starring The Ramones, Donna Summers, Debbie Harry, and featuring quite a few cameos. Please enjoy.
A little behind the scenes: I needed to fill 8 pages in an anthology I was self-publishing at the time, and my long-time friend Sam Vaughan pitched a longer story to me that was the same page length, but had, like, 9 to 12 panels per page, and so I edited that down to a plot based upon the big beats of Sam’s longer story, and scripted from there, using Sam’s exact dialogue from his initial submission for some scenes, adding or combining with my own for others. Then I roped in artist John Mathias, who played bass in Americans UK at the time, and who illustrated the comic using this amazing, seedy-Archie-like style. My pal Ben did a great job lettering all that jibber jabber! A wonderful collaboration all around, we created this Americans UK gem.
I see a similarly named (and great looking) book running a successful Kickstarter, so I thought I’d share this short story I published in 2012 that spun out of the planned ending for the Americans UK comic book series (that we never finished–one day, perhaps). SH3 tells the story of a super-android lady who is responsible for the near extinction of humans, and is trying to round up and save the remaining survivors, in an attempt to redeem herself. It was imagined as sort of a reverse Magnus, Robot Fighter. Written by Jeffrey Burandt, illustrated and colored by Paul Ciaravino, logo designed and lettered by Jeff Powell, “SH3: Human Hunter,” was first published on the now-defunct, online magazine, Trip City on August 1, 2012.
SH3 is an android who navigates a hellish dystopia of her own making, attempting to rebuild a world that she helped destroy, and save humanity from the brink of extinction.
