My super-geeky past

I was in my hometown of Paris, Texas, over the weekend. I dug through some old sketchbooks and found some pretty funny stuff. This sketchbook dates back to around the 8th grade and is full of super-heroes that I created at that time. When I was a kid, I was WAY into super-heroes. From the first time I read a Spider-man comic in the 3rd grade, I wanted to draw super-hero comics. All of my spare time was spent drawing and inventing characters of my own.

Here's a few sketches from my 8th grade super-hero sketchbook. Even though they were heavily influenced by existing super-heros, all characters were created by "Tommy Neely":

C.O.P. (which apparently stands for Cyborg On Patrol)

Bastile

Poltergeist

A nameless ape who can apparently turn into a dude

Icarus

Mercury

Please tell me you're working on a follow-up strip featuring C.O.P., Poltergeist, Bastile, and Ape-Who-Turns-Into-A-Dude.
