Upgrade of the Cybermen

A few days ago, my computer decided to randomly upgrade to Windows10. It took aaaaaaages! During those years that I waited to finally use my laptop again, I came up with this idea for a new Dr Who/Cyberman cartoon.

This will be part of short series influenced by the fantastic tv show, I've already done a Dalek one a while ago which is available to view on the cartoons section of my website- www.garymackean.com

The Many Hurts of Wolverine#11

Here is the latest cartoon in my series The Many Hurts of Wolverine, a collection of comical cartoons focusing on the long list of injuries inflicted on Marvel's most popular mutant superhero Wolverine.

This cartoon is inspired by Uncanny X-Men#126, 1963. In that issue, Wolverine faces off against Proteus- the reality warping mutant son of Moira MacTaggert.

"A Pokemon Is For Life..."

A comic strip about a grown up version of Ash Ketchum (the main character from the Pokemon tv show) who has long forgotten his adventures and his pokeballs. In an effort to show off to his daughter, the adult Ash summons his long lost pokemon from his pokeball, only to realise that the creature has long since died due to neglect.
