When Courtland and I first began working on Stabb Gunner, we didn’t understand the characters or the universe quite as well as we do now. Along the way, we’ve learned that Stabb Gunner should be colorful, bright, and larger than life. As the direction has changed, so too has the color style. Above is a before (left) and after (right) comparison of the digital painting techniques being used in earlier and current Stabb Gunner art. The line has been simplified and the color has exploded. Honestly I love both styles, but consistency is king! We hope you enjoy the direction we’re going. You’ll be able to see all of the new and redone pages when we publish the now finished first chapter in the Stabb Gunner Saga.

The piece above is one I’ve been meaning to share for a while now. It seems that our boy Stabb Fisticuffs has found himself in a spot of trouble. Nothing a leap from an exploding building and a discarded grenade can’t fix. I’m glad our fans are aware of the silliness inherent in Stabb Gunner. Big props to the artist, Lloyd Harper.

It’s no surprise that we love our backgrounds. Steve Becker has been doing and obscenely good job capturing the feel of a broken down train yard. But after scrubbing through our time line, we felt like our backgrounds were lacking a bit of that “Lived In” feel. So we got our boy Jeff McComsey to design us up a spiffy new Propaganda Poster with which to plaster the Atomic Robo: Last Stop environments.
Historical science reference fit right in line with the rest of the Atomic Robo universe. Featuring none other than Russian Space Program Icons, Sputnik, Yuri Gagarin (the first human in space) and Laika (the first animal in space). You’ll see these guys hangin’ around the short, and eventually for sale in our store when it’s up and running. But until then, enjoy this art!
As a side note. I have no idea what those words mean on the bottom of the poster. If any of our Russian speaking brothers and sisters are out there please let us know! And forgive our ignorance!
