I thought it would be funny if I based him on the Jason Momoa version of Conan the Barbarian (which I haven't actually watched, so it's not actually a commentary on that film), other than Grignr's red hair and emerald eyes which are described in the story.

The Eye of Argon is Public Domain, so I can incorporate him into the Apex Universe. I'm making him a contemporary of Pex of Hyperborea.

I had fun drawing a Conan-style Barbarian hero a while back, so I thought I'd do another. This is Grignr of Ecordia from Jim Theis' The Eye of Argon (1970), arguably one of the most incompetently written stories ever published.

What Mad Universe?!? Chapter 4: Who Fears the Devil? is now up!


Strange things haunt the mountains. Up these hills and down these hollows walks a man with a silver-stringed guitar, singin’ the old songs, and doing what justice he can in a frightening world.

In this episode we look at the “Silver John” stories by Manly Wade Wellman, about a humble rover who battles the evils of the backwoods with music in his heart…

I'm reading the Elric of Melniboné series by Michael Moorcock for an upcoming episode of What Mad Universe?!?, and I thought I'd draw the good old brooding albino anti-hero. I chose an Anime style because, frankly, he feels like an Anime character.

It's Halloween night, AKA the best night for the best holiday (pipe down, Christmas.) So one more time, before the end of the season:

HALLOWEEN GIRL AND THE SECRET OF THE SKELETON KEY, by @Spearhafoc and me, on sale right now!



The Snipe is described differently across the country. Sometimes it’s a snake, or a mammal, or a bird. It always has some preposterous features. I used the version from the Fearsome Critters of the Lumberwoods book, which describes it as a bird with three legs for balance, multi-coloured feathers on top and fur underneath, and a hooked nose on a bullwheel.

The subject of a popular prank common throughout the United States. The prank’s victim is invited on a “snipe hunt,” which requires the hunter to perform ridiculous tasks and to hold a bag in the middle of the woods alone. The victim is left there, until they figure out that they’ve been lied to, and left, “holding the bag,” so to speak.

A fat bear-like creature that is entirely hairless except for thick eyebrows and a scraggly beard. Instead it has dark, leathery skin. Its skin is nearly indestructible; bullets and such will bounce right off it. Its only weakness is fire, which will cause it to explode. The Gumberoo is constantly hungry, and is never satisfied - no matter how much it eats.
