The Claws of Frankenstein Island

Hello there Gobsmakt! Friends... Not being an artist, I thought it would be fun to share a sort of sketch. While working on a batch of short stories recently I was stung by the ever present scorpion in my subconscious, THE CLAWS OF FRANKENSTEIN ISLAND. This story is THE one I want to do, a tribute to the horror flicks from the Philippines, Guy N. Smith, professional wrestling and well... a few other surprises. Here is a draft of the "pre-credits" sequence that I think really catches the tone of the story.
Fire up your Mad Doctor of Blood Island soundtrack (what, you don't have that?) and check it out. Monsters, mayhem and more on the way!

Don't trade your pistol for a coffin amigos!

BONUS! Artwork by the incredible Sifu NEIL VOKES!

  2. Thanks sir...this is something I'm working on while doing some short story work to hopefully shore up some support.
    Neil is da man...that artwork is so big and bold it made me rethink some of my story elements!
