2001 Bludgeon

BLUDGEON is an idea that started back while I was in college. The image to the left was drawn back in 2001. My friend and editor, Greg Freeland, had assembled all of his friends from high school into a group called "The Hooligans" (hence the H on the costume) which consisted of superhero alteregos of themselves. When we met in college I followed suit and Bludgeon was born.

Since figuring myself out as a gay man, and finding the bear community, I have always wanted to see a gay bear superhero comic. So, I started revisiting the character in my head... as a solo character learning to live life alone (no longer part of a tema) and learning things about himself as a man who's recently figured himself out.

The series will spend as much time on him as a hero and the sci-fi/horror aspects of the book, as it will on him as a man living his new life.
