“Washington’s Army of Sorcerers and Sorceresses” (WASS)

This page introduces the secret government organization “Washington’s Army of Sorcerers and Sorceresses” (WASS).  While some readers may object to reading many lines of text, I contend that many professional comics and graphic novels use similar blocks of text to convey background information to the reader.  Not every comic needs to be written with short, declarative sentences.

The misfired spell!

I didn’t know how well Larry Hunt would react to this comic; but he accepted it with good humor.

The misfired spell Abigail Adams cast was supposed to transform Angry Cab, not her mentor Larry Hunt.

I’m still amazed on the quality comics I can create with ComiPo!; and I hope to create even better comic pages in the near future.

A new ability

In this page, Angry Cab discovers a new ability, while Abigail Adams and Angry Cab make a discovery about Larry Hunt.
I’m still learning how to create comics and use all the tools in ComiPo!; so please don’t judge these first comics by the same standards as you would a professional comic writer.

Chapter Two, Page One

So begins my comic’s second chapter of Angry Cab.  My comic will be bright and cheerful; appealing to kids and adults that want to read an entertaining comic fantasy.

Angry Cab Characters

This is my comic’s character profile page.  The nose for Abigail Adams is a number one turned upside down.

One story arc ends, another story arc starts!

Larry liked how the first chapter ended by reinforcing his role as one of the comic’s protagonists and mentioning his cafĂ©.  I liked how the first story arc ended on a happy note.

I wanted the last panel to introduce a new antagonist for my comic.  But, I didn’t want to have a standard “off the shelf villain” as seen in so many other web comics.

Then, in an unrelated conservation Larry and I talked about the Lake Superior barrels.  I told Larry that if these barrels contained nothing more dangerous than scrap metal, then these bits should have been recycled.  After all, making “military grade” components, especially strong metal, is expensive.

Larry and I came up with the idea that these barrels were filled with the remains of an alien spacecraft shot down by a secret Army weapon near Roswell, New Mexico.  The spacecraft didn’t carry living beings, but it was itself a living being enclosed in a metal shell.  Now, these fragments of this alien spacecraft are awakening, these bits are angry, and these bits want revenge upon the humans and their cab allies!
