1990-09-01-The-Emergence-of-King-Babah

Cover from 1990-91. Pencil and colored pencil on art sketchbook, deteriorated due to over-handling.

It is the year 1991, and a new villain has been revealed. As seen in last season's "Last DaYz of the Glare", someone has been trying to assassinate Chrusher, hiring his friend and fellow Conqueror RaYzor, mutant-like gangsters, Ninjas, his greatest foe Obliterator, and even a now perished girlfriend. The greatest challenge lies ahead for the Conquerors - Oswegonian High School Justice-Seeking Vigilante Team.

Author's note: The 3rd season of Chris' Crusher Comics (portmanteau is ChrusherComix) began a far more grittier storyline with somewhat more edgy artwork (and far more detail). The greatest growth in art quality is seen between the 1st and 3rd year of my comics, all seen here on this website. Even so, typos (well, misspellings, as I hand-wrote all the text) are often seen, as well as MANY pencil smudges. My high school art teacher - a talented painter whom I greatly respected - appreciated my pencil work, but suggested to me to ink my work to preserve it, to which I did in the following season, 1992. Enjoy VOLUME 3!

And a prelude into one of the most perplexing, odd, unique, dangerous, insane, sadistic, immoral - and hilarious characters in the ChrusherComix Universe - Steven "The Renegade Barbarian Bond" Howeird!Let the madness of Howeirdmania begin!

The Bezerker! The Hybrid Renegade Barbarian - Steven Howeird | Year 3: Issue #2

Wallowing in the dump after being humiliated after being bested by fellow new recruits while trying out for the Conquerors, what little sanity Steven had has now been extinguished. He begins chanting in an undetermined (and possibly made up?) language, says he is the offspring of several nonsensical mixes of ethnicities (that would be difficult, if not near-impossible, to be), wears nothing but a loincloth of some sort of jackal, hyena or large wild cat, wields a giant axe, does not wash nor groom himself, has a perverse worship of feces, and most bizarre of all... his sexuality takes an extremely curious freedom from boundaries - with woman, man, and animal all seemingly fair game to his rampaging hormone-driven rage! I defy you to find a crazier, sicker, stupider-looking comic book villain ANYWHERE! And this was made twenty years before Adult Swim or anything even close to it. Parental discretion... this... is fvcked.

Fort Crusher... GONE! | Year Three, Issue #3

The small, yet formerly indomitable Fort Crusher, headquarters for the Mighty Conqueror group, has been destroyed in the rampage of Barbarian Howeird. Clues pile up lead Chrusher to Anil Inc., and it's head... King Babah - a mysterious crime lord with chromed armor! Meanwhile, Masuto continues his search in American for a lost master to teach him one of the lost arts... The Buffalo! Read it today!

Battle of the Bloodsword | Crusher Comics: Year Three, Part 4

What the fuck has the 16-year-old Chrusher and his high school buds gotten themselves into? They go directly in a head-on attack of a secret castle dwelling a large, armored, sword-wielding crime lord?! Oh, and he has a ninja clan to boot. A kinda' wimpy, Saturday-morning jobber one, but one nonetheless. I mean, are you kidding me? This cannot end well. These boys are WAY over their heads. Battle of the Bloodsword wraps up Year Three of ChrusherComix. And not all will survive. Promise.
