Hi Smith, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I can't really tell you why he really isn't Dead Pool at the moment as I have to protect the story and the 700+ hours work I have already put into this, my first Super Hero type story.  As a small press creator I do really work hard to produce this stuff and I do also contibute a lot to the 2000AD fanzines Zarjaz and Dogbreath.  In fact I have drawn around 26 scripts for them which must be getting on for around 200 or so pages.  I also used to contibute to the 2000AD forum Christmas Advent calenar in the form of 25 page Judge Dredd comics.  Here is a link to Judge Dredd 'Bad Crop' in the PDF file format .pdf]http://www.futurequake.co.uk/imagebucket/Downloads/JD-BadCrop[Final].pdf (http://www.futurequake.co.uk/imagebucket/Downloads/JD-BadCrop[Final)  I hope you enjoy it and once again thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

Looking forward to this. Love your work on Zarjaz.

Yeah, likewise.  So is this a hefty one-off, or the start of something even larger?

Hi Hudge Jeeley, Its great to hear that you are enjoying my work in Zarjaz. Unless you already have it, I have an eight page story in Zarjaz #29 written by Matt Sharp (forum member Lobo Baggins) which can be bought online here http://www.futurequake.co.uk/zarjaz/zarjaz-29/ (http://www.futurequake.co.uk/zarjaz/zarjaz-29/)

Also when I launch Slaughter Hawk next year (or if you decide to by any of my other comic books online) if you contact me by email or Direct messaging here or on Facebook I'll sort you out with a Judge Dredd sketch or if I still have one a panel from one of my Zarjaz Dredd strips as a thank you and to offset any postal costs.  :D

Yeah, likewise.  So is this a hefty one-off, or the start of something even larger?

Hi Tordelback, thanks for the comment and your support. Its great chatting to you again. I have written Slaughter Hawk to be a 48 page full colour self contained story that can be continued with new adventures if it does well. :)

Thanks Hudge, thats great to hear.  I'll be penciling the last page tomorrow night and I hope to start colouring all 48 pages throughout December. Here are pencils and inks for a small panel (actual finished artwork size 70mm by 90mm approx on Bristol board) from Slaughter Hawk which I posted on my FB post Saturday. I'll be posting more pictures from Hawk over the next few months. Thanks once again for the support.  :)

Big shout out to www.orbitalcomics.com (http://www.orbitalcomics.com) one of the comic shops in the UK I contacted about stocking my new comic book 'Slaughter Hawk' stocks are limited so if you're local maybe ask them to reserve you a copy. Pictured in this post is the package I will be sending them. Should be available from 15th September.

Enjoying these daily treats, David - thanks!  Great design for the (robotic? drone?) supply truck BTW. Hope the launch goes well for you.
: Re: SLAUGHTER HAWK.
: David Broughton 07 September, 2018, 05:03:35 PM
Thanks TordelBack, there is much more detail to the artwork in the actual book, as I probably mentioned before I put about 800 hours into it.  I based the drone truck on a concept design I saw on the internet and most of the military vehicles in the ashcan and the book are based on real vehicles too which I used for visual reference when penciling the pages.

Yeah, ditto! Particularly enjoyed Corporate Commander, he's a right wrong'un. Although i do feel Slaughter Hawk may have left himself open to this false-flag tactic by having 'slaughter' right there in the name. 
: Re: SLAUGHTER HAWK.
: David Broughton 17 September, 2018, 10:11:14 PM
Thanks Dave, it was a great weekend and Slaughter Hawk did quite well thank you. All profits go straight back into producing my next comic book.

You're right Tordelback the name leaves him open to the false flag tactic, which is why the corporate media probably helped give him the name. It was exactly the same for Roj Blake in episode one of Blakes Seven...he was falsely accused of much worse by the federation media.  :D

Slaughter Hawk is now available to buy from Orbital comics in London, from my online shop here http://www.comicsy.co.uk/dbroughton/store/products/slaughter-hawk-corporatism-has-a-new-foe/ or by forum direct message to me and along with the free gift A3 poster if I have time I'll even throw in a free sketch like or similar to this one...
