After hurtling through the time bleed Kid comes face to face with the side of a mountain. Time travel is not so easy and he’s still getting the hang of it. E-mail littledogcomics@gmail.com if you have a guess as to what mountain range that is. First person with a correct guess will win a sketch card of Kid Universal.

After last weeks recap we “dive” into the story. In this panel Kid mentions the time bleed. I don’t plan on spending much time explaining what that is with in the story as context should help with that. Since there is only one panel so far and no context I feel I should explain. The time bleed is what allows Kid to travel within time/space. That’s all I want to say about it for the moment. Pay attention to the colors used in this panel as they will appear again and begin to represent important things in the story.

For now, I plan to post one panel a week. I’d like to post full pages but until I build a larger back stock of pages I don’t think I can maintain a weekly posting schedule. I’ll keep a running archive of full pages here so you can check that every 3-4 weeks to see the pages as I intended them to look.

And who’s speaking off panel? Might be a while before you find out!

Kid Universal Recap

ku 0001 lettered

When I was eleven years old my mom brought  home the best garage sale score ever. It was a foot and a half tall stack of comics from the eighties. There must have been a hundred or more. The first thing I did before reading them was to organize them alphabetically by title then by issue number. That’s when I noticed something was off. For example, I had Green Lantern 188 and 189 then there was a gap and I had issue 200. All the other titles were like this too. The collection was full of holes! Each gap in the story was a mystery to me that I might one day solve if i could only come across those missing issues. With Kid Universal I want you to have that same experience I had when I was eleven so I created this recap page. Currently there are no previous issues but maybe someday I’ll get to those missing issues. Next week we dive into the middle of the story.
