"On Lighter Dreams" Updates

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, September 18, 2011, In : Callous 

    Storylines, it seems, are never finished, they escape!  Featuring the "On Lighter Dreams" Special Edition!
    You may have noticed that the "On Lighter Dreams" storyline recently ended a bit abruptly.  Unfortunately, time and daily energy demands are not on the side of Callous Comics recently, and I had to decrease my comic output per week from seven to three (and then two towards the end of September 2011).  I did not want to do this while in mid-storyline, so I heavily edited the latter...

Whoa! What a surprise!
The fantastic Andrew Villar who does the comic strip Ambush sent me this brilliant drawing of his titular character bloodied and bruised with doctors Rianne Nicah and Aimee Queens tending to her wounds, seemingly in mid-battle too!

Ambush is published in the Manila Bulletin, the Philippines' largest broadsheet newspaper by circulation.  You can follow Andrew on Twitter as @ambush007!

Thanks Sir Andrew! You rock!

I made this sketch last September because I had hoped to offer it to Ambush's creator in person.  However, such an opportunity hasn't arrived so I figured I'd post it here. :)

Anyways, this is a drawing of mine featuring Amber, the heroine of a popular local comic strip series called Ambush.  I stylized her a bit, giving her different sunglasses and all.  I don't draw guns very often hence the ridiculous looking pistol.  Still, the comic is a fun romp through various action-filled adventures a...
