We're still a long ways off from actually getting this comic uploaded on the site, but I figured that rather than having our brand logo up, we should put a picture of the characters themselves.
So, this is Fuss and Shush, short for Rufus and Precious. Things may change before the comic itself, but this is the direction we're going in.
The current timeline is June has to finish her run on EverydayAbnormal, then we're going to do the epilogue for TOGM, and then get going on this one. Fortunately, Issue 1 has already been completely written, and issue 2 has the outline finished.
Well, have a great year, and hopefully we'll see you later on this year to get this thing going!
I'm not 100% sure if it is a composite longbow, mainly because I'm not sure what exactly makes it composite. I would say that his bow is probably what children in England would have used to train in longbow archery.
Shush, on the other hand, is using a Hand-and-a-half sword (Bastard sword?), meant for her mother's Guardsmen, but using it two handed due to her smaller size.
A bastard is actually a 2 hander due to the thicker blade adding weight, a hand and a half straight edge, I shall see what I can get my hands on, as for the composite it means that usually it's wood and metal, or wood and bone to make it easier to nok the arrow and pull the bowstring, usually used for training as it has less power on loosing.
Ok I looked into it some and the closest I could find is a roman longsword, or "spatha" it's a pretty basic blade closer to hand and a quarter, but it has the right shape. I could probably get my hands on an extended one and modify the pomel and guard into more of shush's blade.
Sorry to keep replying like this but I believe I found exactly what shush would have based on your description and the image, it would be a bohemian broadsword. Most comfortable used with 2 hands but suited to be one handed http://www.myarmoury.com/maly_swor_aa_boh.html
June might be able to provide an idea of where she came up with that particular design. I do know that she researched it somewhat, so she might have an exact type that she based it off of. Eventually, I suspect Shush will get a nicer sword, but I also suspect that it'll be a few years before that comic comes out :)
That would be helpful. I really think I might have to cosplay these two, just so you can say that you had someone cosplay fuss and shush before the comic even started. I remember someone cosplayed the phantom, so why not right?
Yes, we are. Skrael's actually gone back to school, and she's been working very hard on that. I've been mucking around with the world building a little more, but we're not sure where we're at with actually creating pages.
We definitely appreciate the support though, that's awesome!
A Six is a category Six Zombie, which is basically capable of higher level functioning. They possess the ability to access information from more of the others involved, and can do some things that look an awful lot like precognition.
I haven't watched it in a while, but they'd be more impressive than the guy in the movie Limitless with their intellectual functioning.
Sadly, they would also be more influenced by the Overmind, so they'd start being less cool, and more insane overlord.
