is creating Atom Bug, a Webcomic

What is Atom Bug?

Atom Bug is an action webcomic series that uses 3D elements to add a visual narrative not found in many current titles. Most of the book is traditionally penciled with the inks and colors added during the digital stage. If appropriate, 3D designs are composited over landscapes and characters to give the artwork its unique look. The goal is to produce a colorful and fun read for comic book readers who enjoy action titles but wish to stray from the superhero genre.  

The Story thus far...

The Defendants struggle to save their homeworld from an apocalyptic shadowform.
Proton Planet lay peaceful until the arrival of the Otherworlders. Led by Asterix, self-appointed king who offers no compromise and no negotiation, the OtherWorlders begin the apocalyptic shadowform of the planet while simultaneously dealing with their last obstacle... Atom Bug and the Defendants. Remnants of the nearly extinct inhabitants of Proton Planet, the Defendants band together to thwart Asterix and his Otherworlders from total annihilation. The odds stacked against them, Atom Bug will lead the fragmented races against the clock as their world slowly falls to their demonic foes.
