The following are select images from some of Archie’s early comics and doodlings. Some are over fifteen years old so be prepared to see some aberrations of the human form.
:: Ranul (1995) ::
Concieved as a modern vampire tale set on an alien world, Ranul was a moon worshiping, bloodsucking alchemist and heir to a family legacy that spanned a thousand millennia. Trouble begins to brew when a pretender to the throne makes herself known.
Drawn in the mid nineties, this was a time when anything seemed possible; hence the main character being laden with a ridiculous name like Orb Van Manta. Incidentally, Ranul is Lunar spelt backwards...ahhh, simpler times. The images below have been selected and are missing Sequential pages.
:: Intestinum Tenue (1994) ::
One of three short stories released in the sci-fi horror comic Bio-Synthetic Granny. The comic sold in Forbidden Planet, Dawson Street, Dublin. The story revolved around a warrior who entered an arena every week to mete out punishment to some unfortunate individuals who had offended him. This weeks victims; Neo Nazis. The strip blatantly ripped off elements of Running Man, Predator and Robo Cop and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. The images below have been selected and are missing Sequential pages.
