Globcow #1 will be a 20-page, all-ages comic by Jeremy C. Shipp (writer/creator) and Tabby Freeman (artist). Each page will be full color.
Let's meet some of the characters, shall we?
Globcow is a little demon who decides to leave the underworld so that he can become an angel. His heart's in the right place, but his teeth often get him into trouble. In his spare time he likes to bite everything in sight, collect porcelain clowns, and ride around on dogs. Will this little weirdo ever earn his angel wings?
Maria is the coolest angel around. At least, she likes to think so. When she's not at home dressing her cats in Victorian gowns, Maria's protecting the world from giant demonic hedgehogs and other terrifying creatures of the underworld. Of course, she's more than a little annoyed when she's forced to mentor Globcow. What will people think if they see her hanging around with a stinky little demon? Will Maria teach Globcow the ways of kindness and friendship, or will she quit her day job and start a hat store for cats?
Harry's a flying pig, but you can see that, can't you? Harry is Maria's boss, and he dresses like a hard-boiled detective because he looks darn good in an overcoat. Don't you think?
THE BLADE DRAGON
The Blade Dragon has power beyond comprehension, and he's a big meanie. Can Maria and Globcow defeat this monster and save the day? Did we mention the dragon can breathe flaming swords?
