Issue Two METAMORPHOSIS by sturkwurk Issue Two METAMORPHOSIS by sturkwurk
The Ballad of Harper Kelly: Metamorphosis
written by: Renee Roselli
artwork by: sturkwurk (me)

This is what I've been working off and on since March, 2016.
The artwork for the first issue is complete - the lettering hasn't started yet.

Available now, at the usual place for TG Comics as a PREMIUM format comic.

Issue One is available! Issue One DEMOTION by sturkwurk


The cover imagery was heavily inspired by the classic movie posters for North by NorthWest.

I'll take some credit for the sexy part, but the brilliant all goes to Renee (the writer)

Instead of "fiddlesticks," what would have been funnier would be the line out of “Christmas Story” where Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley) loose the lug nuts to his dad’s car and said “oh fudge” but is wasn’t fudge.

thank you for your support and feedback. We're trying to put a lot of emotion into the story, I want the reader to care about Harper and Grace.

The end of Day 9, I was kinda of expecting something alone that line, but when I saw your Interpretation of it, I almost fell out of my chair. Again what a rush.

not so much a gift - just stubborn enough to keep trying until I get what I want in the image. :)

I really love the artwork that goes into "The Ballad of Harper Kelly" and I wasn't disappointed by the new story. its has the quality that would make the Dutch master proud.

thanks, but I wouldn't take it that far.  I'm lucky to be at the talent level of the average paint by number.

Really looking forward to this. Issue One was probably my favorite thing I've bought at TG Comics.

It’s a wonderful wicket story of good vs. evil to see who can survive. What I like is the find detail to each of the frames, to read the story over a few times just to see what I can pick out in it. But the best part of this continuing story it’ softening blow to the nightmare that coming are way in November.

The statement about November is about which dud for president do you want to vote for. I was thinking of voting for my favorite candidate "None of the above"

Oh, gotcha. I'll bet none of the above gets a lot of votes.

Ugh. Just really didn't like that lady with the control in the first one. (Can't remember her name off the top of my head.) I mean it's one thing to be pissed off at someone, but you have to be psychologically damaged to do something like what she and the company are doing to Harper, especially with the fact it could mess up his long term relationship. 

I really hope she gets hers in the end of the story. :nod:

sounds like we're doing our jobs right if you don't care for Morgan... you're not supposed to. 
I hope she gets what's coming to her too, but if you didn't like her in issue one... you're really going to dislike her in issue two.

Great cover.  Harper's looks are improving.  I know he doesn't think he can run away from the company, that's just what it looks like.  Can't wait for Part 2.
