Here is the tenth page of my webcomic, "Opey the Warhead".

Like the reference to "The Twilight Zone" episode "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You". My favorite is the "Living Doll", with Talking Tina.

"My name is Talking Tina, and I love you!"
"My name is Talking Tina, and I do not like you!"
"My name is Talking Tina, and I am going to kill you!"

Nice take on the apocalypse. I like the shout-out to that "The Twilight Zone" episode...can't quite remember the name off the top of my head, but it's one of my favorites. :D

Thanks! I know exactly what you're saying. They're a pain in the unmentionables to draw. :)

That's one mean city scape. One day, I dream of drawing images like that.

Thanks. I think post-apocalyptic landscapes are the funnest to draw.

This is a great page. I love how a featureless character can still conjure up emotion and empathy.

Thanks (and I deeply appreciate the faves, too)! I can tell you, it's an interesting challenge to write a story around a faceless character. When I originally created Opey, I toyed with the idea of making him look like a normal boy with nuclear electronic innards. But, being the masochist that I am, I decided to make him look literally like an atomic bomb. :)

What I love about your story, "Patty", is that it also features off-beat characters with features outside the norm. It's a fascinating comic with a great style.

Thanks! I don't even know what the norm is any more (though judging by the front page of Devianart I can guess) but I know that I like stuff that I haven't seen before or that makes me look twice. Most comic art doesn't do that, but your pages do.

Thanks! I've noticed the more unique work on DA tends to be overlooked. Fan art, manga, or emo stuff seems to be all the rage. It's too bad, because I've seen some spectacular artists here on DA who are largely overlooked.

nice twilight zone reference :D. That episode creeped me out *shudder*. Weird comic btw, where did you get the idea from?

I'm glad you noticed the "Twilight Zone" reference (the billboard was a wink to those who were fans of the series). I love that show, and "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" was one of my favorites. Coincidentally, another twilight zone reference shows up on my latest Opey page.

I'm not certain from what dark recesses of my brain Opey came from, but the inspiration for the comic was an anime series called "His and Her Circumstances". That show didn't have any living atomic bombs, it was a quirky show about a snobby but popular high school girl dealing with the arrival of a male rival, who she ultimately falls in love with. I wanted to do a story with a school setting, too, but set in the post-apocalypse. :)

Great angles and perspectives! It seems (to me) you've combined elements of western and eastern urban decay. I'd be hard-pressed to say where Adam City is and I love that ambiguity.

Hmmm? Speaking of which, "Adam City" and "Clone 12"? Have I found a hidden joke ("Adam 12") or am I reading too much into this?

Considering how well thought-out every panel is and your propensity for 'in-jokes'...

Thanks for the great compliment and adding this page to your favorites! I love drawing decaying objects and building, so this page was a bit of a treat to do.

I'm sorry to say that "Adam 12" was not the in-joke here, although that would have been a cool one to do, now that I think about it.

However, there is one in-joke on this page, and that is "No. 12 Looks Just Like You". That's actually the title of one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, dealing with individuality in a world of carbon copy people, a theme that will show up later in the Opey comic. I'm a big Twilight Zone fan, and hopefully I'll have a different title snuck into each issue.

Doh! I'm also a big TZ fan, but I completely missed the reference as I'd forgotten the episode!

Apparently there's a 'mathcore' band using this as their name, though I haven't heard them yet?
