IndieAnimate: Tony Chu

An illo of my favorite comic book character, Tony Chu!

Tony's a cibopathic agent of the FDA in a world ravaged by the avian flu. Using his power of getting psychic impressions from anything he eats (with the exception of beets), he solves cases like a G. And sometimes not like a G. He was modeled after actor Ken Leung.

For more of Tony's adventures, cop that tasty CHEW, y'all!

Good Head: Atom

Aw yeah, Ryan Choi! I miss this dude right here.

Ryan Choi was the bearer of the Atom legacy when his mentor and previous Atom, Ray Palmer, disappeared. Ryan immigrated to the US from Hong Kong to teach Physics in Ray's stead at Ivy University hoping to eventually find out the fate that befell his predecessor. Ryan stumbled upon Ray's size-changing belt in his Ivy Town home and hilarity ensued.

Tragically, DC Comics decided to kill off Ryan Choi shortly after Ray Palmer's return. Aside from the fact that Ryan was a rarity in comics as an Asian American man carrying a mainstream title in the lead and titular role, he was also one of the most easygoing, funny, and relatable characters among the doom and gloom era of comics. He was literally more than his powers. He'll always be my preferred Atom.

Mix-Mixing It Up

In honor of Man of Steel's US premiere, here's my illo for The Line It Is Drawn 143: Superman Team-Ups!

I chose a fun suggestion from Rebecca Martin, who wanted to see Supes teamed-up with the Philippines' very own Captain Barbell!

Judging from this previous piece, it looks like Barbs is gradually spreading the gospel of balut, one ubermensch at a time!

So what'd y'all think of Man of Steel?
