Webtoon ‘Minion’s Quest’

Good News everyone! Jonathan Ian Mathers, creator of the animated cartoon series Neurotically Yours starring Foamy the Squirrel, is venturing into the realm of Fantasy with a new web series. It’s called Minion’s Quest and follows the adventures of a Succubus, Velosa, who, upon being summoned, arrives to discover her Master nowhere to be found; her quest is searching for him in the strange new world she now inhabits.

I suspect she may be from a Futurama-type Universe as Velosa uses the word ‘axed’ instead of ‘asked.’ I love subtle geek references and this promises to be chock full of them!

Inspired by World of Warcraft and encouraged by internet successes like The Guild Mathers felt the time had come to realise a concept he’d been sitting on for 5 years! He says “It’s no secret I’m pretty geeky” and “I really need to work on something that isn’t centered around NYC. Foamy, 4y, Dia & Tofu all take place in Manhattan so this gives me a chance to go beyond my comfort zone.”

Fan Art for Wayward Fall

I drew some more fan art, this one of Vigana from the fantasy webcomic Wayward Fall by Taversia Borrelli (now there’s the name of an Artist if ever I heard one)! It’s a fairly adult webcomic with plenty of violence, a dash of sex and a dark, Gothic feel – but what do you expect from a comic where vampires stalk the streets?

And that’s just what Vigana is: a sexy flame-haired, red-and-black-wearing Vampire (just the sort Amuletts would probably go for)! She’s pretty awesome in my opinion – I like strong female characters.

Hmm, I think I just came up with a new tagline for this comic: Love Buffy? Hate Twilight? Read Wayward Fall!

And now I’ve stirred up that shit-storm allow me to explain: The Vampires in this story are very traditional, they are dangerous, blood-drinking creatures of the night. And like Buffy this comic combines elements of both fantasy and horror, with a hidden, dark world of magic and supernatural creatures. It’s not a teenage angsty romance. Well… I mean there is angst and romance but it’s adult angst and romance :p
