Another (small) treasure

Oh look, another idea I’ve never elaborated on. It was a pretty good one nonetheless.

Meet Rebound Boy. He’s a… different kind of superhero I came up with a long, long time ago when I was having a fun time out with my dear friend and extremely talented illustrator Joke (yes, don’t laugh. “Joke” is an actual name here. Short for Johanna or something). We were out in a cafĂ©, drawing silly cartoons on beer coasters, and this was one of the results.

Rebound Boy, as you already understood, is the kind of superhero who shows up whenever a damsel in distress needs consoling when she’s dumped of has been dumped by her asshole boyfriend. That’s why he wears his “cape” in his shoulder instead of around his neck. Unfortunately, there will be no wild Rebound Boy adventures. He’s retired.

While waiting for new updates on this site, why not check out Joke’s work on http://www.jokeeycken.be/ ? Highy recommended stuff, Oscar-nominated no less!
