The Draugr

The Draugr started as an 8-page story for Fubar: By the Sword #1.  I fleshed it out a bit more to 20 pages for a stand-alone issue, though retaining the same basic story, with the idea of having it ready for the MICE 2013 comics expo.


It was somewhat of a challenge to use what I had for Fubar as there was a page size discrepancy.  Fubar's pages being a bit taller and much skinnier than the usual stout BL format.  A couple of initial sketched pages which I had cut were re-added to the new version and in general, by adding a panel here and there and slowing the pace of the story a little, I found I could work 2 pages from each original page.  The hope is that they both work in their respective formats.

Also included are 3 pages of guest art from barbaric illustrators Mister Reusch, David Tilton and Nathanial Hamel.

A copy of this issue can be ordered at
and comes with an 8x8 print with one of five possible
grim musings of Barbarian Lord.
Thanks to Jeff McComsey and Jeff McClelland of Fubar!
