Hello ATS-ers!!!

Well, some of you are aware of my little comic project and the help/support of ATS it has gained. Well, last time I posted the LINK to Issue 2's movie, but I never got to share with you the traditional comic format (for those who rather read then watch and listen).

This is the second installment of the 30 issue journey of Mr Mask the Conspiracy Theorist as he enters the world of conspiracy and learns to deal with it all without the help of super powers or even a super car. I hope some of you enjoy this and continue reading as the issues keep rolling out and heading to its conclusion.

This issue attempts to show that familiar paranoia that comes with navigating the newly discovered territory of "conspiracy theory" and the ultimate choice between ignorance or acceptance of such.

AS ALWAYS thank you to everyone who has been following this project and ATS itself. It is so much fun being able to make this series, and without the ATS community, its staff, and owners (and of course JOE my ATS HERO)- I wouldn't have a chance to create/share it.

So here it is for you to enjoy or not! Issue Two "The Paranoia".























Well, I hope you enjoyed it...if not, feel free to yell at me in this thread. Or, just leave some love! WHATEVER you do, post what you think below. Feedback is golden, good or bad, and I welcome it with open arms and all.

Until next time, I will be seeing all you on the boards and maybe in the real world (if you are unlucky enough)!

PS- Heres some links to Issue One's Movie and Comic in case you missed it.

And, here is a preview of issue 3.

Yknow...to hide the fact that its taking me so long to get it out.

I thought I'd add some more to this thread, beefing it up (and bumping it shamelessly) with some personal content.

Recently a few people have stated that using photos to create this comic is cheating, or worse- means I am a fraudulent hack who can't draw...lol...I guess some folks do not understand how long a comic of a "hand drawn nature" would take to complete all by my self.

It just isn't possible for me to draw a full comic at this time in my life...so, the project arrives as what it is now, a photo based comic strip created on my computer, using real pics of myself and doctored/built scenes.

BUT, let that not lead you to believe that I am a stranger to hand drawn art. I have spent (some say wasted) my entire life creating art, and it is only recently that I have ventured into the "digital visual world" of creating artwork.

Below, I would like to share some personal pieces from various years. Almost all of them are old, unfinished and flawed (like me), and hardly polished or professional (me, again).

Hope you enjoy them. It was fun finding them. Sadly, there is very little work of mine saved in digital format. But here is some of what I can find.

Its not much or many, but its original content all created way before my membership here on ATS, and each one brings back memories better then any photo ever could. Heh...fun times. Well I hope you enjoyed them!

Back to working on issue 3.

oh, I need to say I like to read my comics instead of watching them in video format (''.)... I'm from the... you know... "old school", so I loved that you took the time to post it as it used to be.
I readed it again and loved it again, you're great!

And... the drawing of the girl with the gun at the bar... I liked it more just in the ink stage
('cause I'm one of those ink lovers that does all her art using black and white ink)! You're a good artist!!!

Thank you! I dunno much about a constructive manner...but it feels "right" to be embarking on this project.

So I'm grateful for the chance to do so!

I'm also a old schooler! Thank you so much for taking the time to sit down with the comic and digest it in its traditional format.

Ahhh, I'm also a lover of good black-n-white comics (Sin City, Tick, Concrete, Cerberus, Faust, to name a few). Thanks for the kind words on my personal hand-drawn stuff. Though I have not taken up the pen and pencil in some time now- I do hold a love in my heart for all things drawn.

I really hope to keep you reading as the comic keep growing.

So really, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving kind words

News is brewing and something is coming...

I thought I'd throw a hint in the direction by showing the icon that will appear with it.



Also shamelessly and without regret bumping this thread...

THATS RIGHT !!!!

Thank you for the kind words! I hope you pick up a pencil again real soon...you must know your Muse is getting angry with you avoiding her.

PS- Nightbreed is one of my favorite movies of all time! Your avatar made me smile.

That was awsome, "bra!"

These comics are EPIC. You manage to capture the spirit of ATS members without really taking sides on the issues.


Conspiracy Theorists FTW!

Thank you!

The whole goal for the project is more to show what its like to be a conspiracy theorist and to detail what its like being wrapped up in such subjects. It has less to do with actual individual theories or proving them real or not, and more to do with painting the picture of what its like to fall in to that rabbit hole.

I'm glad you see that I am trying to show the "spirit" of what it means to be a Conspiracy Theorist!

And I hope you continue to follow the project.
