Zik asks Zoot to look for weaknesses and then tries to buy himself some time. Of course, teasing your opponent about his lack of family jewels is probably not the best way to go about it! With a quick boot to the chest, the fight has begun! And Zik is sent flying backwards. Let’s see how he does against this behemoth clonoid!

Light Him Up

Not one to be phazed by the unexpected, Zik springs into action! This is a formidable threat, so it’s time to expend some ammo. But the massive clonoid seems to be too thick-skinned to be harmed by mere bullets, even when launched from a railgun! He casually brushes them off and picks out the bullet lodged in his forehead! It’s time for plan B: good old fashioned fisticuffs! Let’s hope Zik is up to the challenge!

Quite An Entrance

Zik and Trent are feeling confident that this riot will end in a quick victory for the prisoners, so they continue to try to find Amelia. Meanwhile, some of the other prisoners try to enter a locked restricted area to hunt for more clonoids to fight. It looks like they got more than they bargained for, though! Something beats down the door from the other side! Look at the size of that fist!

Hey guys! Check out what I did between pages! I did this nifty digital painting for my Iron Tiger buddy Jordan of Hominids! It features some nasty dudes from the flesh eater tribe eating an unfortunate neanderthal. It’s a bit bloody and gory, so don’t click if that bothers you!


Diving In

Faced with a situation that’s quickly gone completely out of control, Zik decides that the best way to get Amelia out safely is to eliminate as many clonoids as possible! He activates a neck brace which will protect him as he fights and he and Trent dive into the fray! Feet and fists fly to their targets and Trent lets his rail gun find its targets! Looks like the game of the day is if you can’t beat ’em, beat ’em up!

Oh my goodness what a long wait between pages! I am truly sorry for that. In early February I slipped on an icy staircase and konked the back of my head, resulting in a nasty concussion that has had me out of commission for months. It’s been a long, dark road to recovery, and I’m not even totally healed yet! Unbelievably, as of this posting, I’ve actually been asleep for most of 2015 so far! Fortunately, I had this page mostly completed before the accident, so there was only a wee bit left to do before it was complete.

I still have work to do on the new Locus site, but I’ve also started sketching out the next Zik page. I thought up a few other things while I was drifting in and out of consciousness, so there may be some fun things coming as well. We’ll see if I still think they’re good ideas when I’m fully healed!

Once again, I thank you for your patience! Zik fans are the absolute best!

Greg runs in to the factory and starts a riot! Zik checks Kyle for a pulse and doesn’t find one. Confused as to what just happened, he asks Trent what the heck is up with these two crazy guys. It turns out they’re regular rabble-rousers! Zik suddenly realizes that he was foolish to disregard Vera’s warning and rushes into the factory. Too late! The riot has already started!

There might be a bit of a pause before the next Zik page goes up. It turns out that the database over on Adam Black’s Locus site has gotten messed up and the pages from issue 13 onward don’t follow properly. I haven’t been able to make it work right, so I’m going to use this opportunity to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of years now – upgrade the site completely! I’m hoping to enable the art to fill more of your screen so you can properly enjoy the sensual artwork that Adam lays down every time he picks up his paintbrushes. That dude can draw!

To tide you over until the next update, here’s what’s going on with my Iron Tiger pals!
