The Pyro

The Pyro

Views gas as an opportunity to make a light meal.

The Pyro bravely seeks answers to two of life's great questions: 1) "Will it explode?" and 2) "Does it taste like chicken?" You just might want to take a few steps back.

The Pyro held the coveted title of Current Champ from Monday, April 07, 2008 to Monday, April 07, 2008, heartily vanquishing Mr. Fantastic Feathers, Canary Incredible to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Stiff Breeze.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Guest Illustrator Anton Peck.

  10. Am I the only one who is sort of sad that Pyro isn't a Zippo?

    But! I love fire, so I do love this. Also, his scary teeth.

  12. I think I like his frenchman's greasy narrow mustache the best. Granted, that may just be a crease from his lip, but in my mind, he looks like Pierre Flambe or something.

  13. Hah - yeah, that's just a crease from the lip. But if you want to think of it as a 'stache, go right on ahead!

    Coming up with, and drawing this was a total blast - everyone please tell Kevin how awesome you think it is so that he'll have me back on someday soon, okay?!?

  14. @Anton:

    Mustache it is! Also, your's is one of my favorite art styles thus far, so I definitely hope they bring you back. Or maybe you and another one of the guest artists can do a similar sister site. It is largely about promoting the artists, after all.

Major Fatigue

Major Fatigue

Forces a hiatus. Due to our approaching book deadline, Kevin's disintegrating back, and our general feeling of burnt-outedness, the artists have decided to take a break from posting.
