Superstoked page 5 by PaulHanley Superstoked page 5 by PaulHanley
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my continuing regular webcomic... SUPERSTOKED! I recommend using "full view" mode.

NEXT PAGE HERE: [link]
PAGE 1 HERE: [link]
SKIP TO ANY PAGE HERE: [link]

So ya might notice this page doesn't have, um... how do you say it... jokes? A punchline? A point? That's b/c I originally wrote this as a 48 page one-shot comic made to be read in one sitting. Some pages are gonna adapt better to the weekly format than others. But this is, in it's quiet way, the page where the story really kicks off. A good chunk of the cast gets intro'd here, including Rachel Lewis, a.k.a. Verve- a character who's been kicking around in my head for years. She's actually appeared before in one of my other DA pieces- bag of invisible jelly babies to whoever says where first. ;)

This series is easily the most personal and beloved thing I've ever uploaded to DA, so if you dig it, please comment, fave it, feature it, spread the word, etc. Thanks. :)

Superstoked is 2010, Paul Hanley. And that's a bona-fide registered copyright, folks. Just sayin'.

Yep! But the question is... is it a toy or a real one? :D

Judging by the fact it's sitting in the classic doll pose, I'd say toy. :P

Personally I thought the two bottles of meds was a nice touch :D
Oh and that's easy, She's in "Mighty Daikaiju Gigan" in the front.

I'm very happy someone noticed the meds. :D And yeah, that's her in the Gigan pic. I could see her fashion style fitting in w/ Tokyo.

Thanks! I have a lot of fun doing the colors for these. The cartoonier style lets me get away with going a little crazy. :)

It's a simple mistake. I just figured I'd offer the proper name though it was obvious who you meant.

Well spotted. I have a feeling she's spent many hours in front of that mirror lip-synching to "Magic Dance". :D

And thanks for the fave, btw. :)

Can't wait for the next comic, she only has two lines and I'm already liking this character. ^^

I'm, also slightly jealous of her awesome room.
Reply
:iconpaulhanley:
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010  Professional
Excellent! Thanks for the kind words- I'm quite fond of her m'self. :)

I put a lot more detail into that room than I usually would, as I only had to draw it in one panel and it allowed me to convey a lotta info about the character. It's a little scary how many details were taken from my own home (like the CDs on the floor and the superflous post-it notes taped up everywhere).

Did she get fashion advice from the Sixth Doctor?

PaulHanley Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010  Professional
I've often thought of drawing them together, actually! Maybe I will, now that she's "published". It'd be fun to draw one of the Doctors in the "Superstoked" style. Geez, 5 pages in, and this comic's already in danger of "crossover fatigue". :D

And yeah, Rachel's costume is meant to be... extreme. I have a script for another story with her where a character describes her as looking like, "the Hamburglar in a Gay Pride parade".

I already like it and I look forward to each page. I see you couldn't resist to put an Adipose Doll into Rachel's room.^^

PaulHanley Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010  Professional
Yep! One of many "easter eggs" in Rachel's room. My favorite thing about it is that it seems to be imitating her pose. Though it's never said explicitly in the series, Rachel's a huge David Tennant fangirl, which helps to explain certain life-defining choices she makes as the series progresses (no really!).

I've noticed a Doctor Who-Poster in her room. It's very hidden, but it's definitely David Tennant on it. It's a very small part, but trust me I can tell.^^
