CHAMPION CITY COMICS: OUR 9TH ANNIVERSARY - PART ONE

Nine years ago, I launched Champion City Comics as a webcomics community. The goal was to assemble a talented group of people to develop original titles that would strengthen our professional portfolios. Some amazing and interesting people joined the ranks of Champion City Comics. Many left, but a few dedicated souls stuck around, and I'm still friends with those people today. Also, I'm  creating comics with some of those talented individuals, which is truly incredible.

Champion City Comics was created because I had this idea sometime in 2003 or 2004 to write comics. I emailed my cousin Joe Hammerle and we began work on a title called The Champion City Fire. It was a fun blend of crime noir and science fiction. The Champion City Fire followed time traveling vigilantes who have orders to kill a select group of criminals. Then there was the cops who investigated the murders, and there was this secret society, and crazy car salesman/prophet. This all sounded much cooler ten to twelve years ago.

The Champion City Fire was going to be a six issue mini series and our ticket to comic book fame. But life happens and the series ended up being an unfinished project by 2009, but not the last project I worked on with Joe.

I wanted people to see what I had started with Joe, and that's how I discovered the wonderful world of webcomics. There were a few people proclaiming that print was dead and digital was the future. It was easy to get your comics online and people were hungry for webcomics. That's what I heard back in the day. It's true. People don't lie on the internet, right?

October 2009 was our launch and it started with the Champion City Fire. Feel free to read our webcomic below. Have fun, and maybe I'll talk more about those crazy webcomics days.

Kav and Tony Break It Down: Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #98


Kav and Tony are two webcomic collaborators and lifelong comic book fans having fun reviewing titles from the Golden and Silver Age of Comics. They know these comic books were published with a young audience in mind, but they couldn't pass up the opportunity to make fun of goofy covers, ridiculous plots, silly dialogue, and pseudo-scientific shenanigans.  

Kav: Back in the 60's DC did a survey and kids chose gorillas as their favorite cover feature, so they went way overboard on the gorilla covers. They popped up everywhere. Jimmy Olsen and the science fiction titles seem to have taken the brunt of the damage. Here we see the inevitable final result of this nonsense-Jimmy being forced to marry a gorilla by a Witch Doctor Superman. Many times where there was a gorilla, a witch doctor wasn't far behind. We see Jimmy's new wife already screaming at him about something. Get used to it buddy. Of course Lucy Lane has to be present whenever Jimmy is humiliated. I read a lot of these Jimmy Olsen stories and Superman is always depicted as the trickster character from Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey. Kinda helpful but mostly not. In 'Midas of Metropolis' Jimmy had to spend a million dollars to get a million in 24 hours. He was down to his last 10 cents, it was Sunday, and everything was closed. Superman just stood there grinning instead of telling Jimmy to put the dime in the parking meter before he gets a ticket. He got the ticket. I've had friends like this. Don't ask me what Superman is stirring in the pot but it's an appropriate image for sure.

Tony: Superman is not only just a witch doctor, but he's the local witch doctor. Hopefully, Jimmy's health care plan has witch doctor Superman in his network. Also, I'm not fully convinced that Supes successfully completed an apprenticeship to earn his degree or certificate or whatever in witch doctoring. Dude probably didn't even do a residency. Why does local witch doctor Superman need a fire when he can boil that pot with his heat vision? I can only imagine the absurd plot that unfolds in this issue.
