Adversaries #1 3/4 completed, New Art!

So I ended up adding a fourth villain to Adversaries #1. The character fit the criteria, and while not as interesting as the other 3, was one I wanted to put out for awhile. Just an addition that won't affect the final cost of the product.

I've also decided that after #1, I'll be focusing on single villains for a few issues. So #2 will actually feature Moodswing, and not the villains mentioned in my last post. However, I'll be doing something different with Moodswing. There will be two sets of stats for her. The first is as she is now, which makes her a challenge for a single hero. The second will be a version where she's developed more powers, and is a threat a small team would have to face.

I did this because as I looked over her original write up, I got some new ideas for powers for her. However, adding those powers made her way too powerful for one hero to handle, so I decide to present two versions. I might do this for a couple of characters, and see how it goes.

I also commissioned work from two artists I haven't had the pleasure of working with yet. +Jacob Blackmon has done a lot of work for Rogue Genius Games, and has contributed art to Fainting Goat Games Supervillain Handbook. I ordered two pieces, and he finished them so quickly, I just ordered two more from him. Figured I'd show off what he did for me all ready. These two villains are a brother and sister duo named Zip & Zap. Zip is a speedster, and Zap controls Electricity. I've had the idea for these two for a little over 2 years now, so it was great to see Jacob finally bring them to life visually.

I've also ordered four pieces from +James Shields. I had wanted to work with him for awhile now, but sadly couldn't afford to. He was running a special this month to celebrate the success of his Patreon Campaign, so I jumped at the chance to order a few pieces. I've only sent him info on two of them so far, but will be getting the info on the other two off to him soon.

Lastly, here's a look at the cover for Adversaries #2:
