Tales To Behold 6, Page 41: Tough Breaks

The poor Captain is a bit overwhelmed.
How can be The Protectors shrug off all their efforts just like that?

Monday, December 21, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 40: Balloon Necklace

Hopefully XYZ-2 appreciates the beautiful necklace.
And hopefully it takes him far away.
Meanwhile, The Odds are re-grouping. All things considered, they have been holding up ok!

Tales To Behold 6, Page 39: Secret Infiltrator

Now we know who the secret infiltrator was, it's the Commissioner, of course.
But will he get through?

Tales To Behold 6, Page 38: Out Of Their League

Looks like the first casualty is Armstrong Fatbuckle,
aka The Worst Man in the World, aka the Human Skeleton.
He didn't deserve that!

New Protectors in Color

Was fun to re-color this drawing of three of the New Protectors, to figure out their color scheme: Americana, XYZ-2 and Herakles! See their shenanigans in the current Tales To Behold storyline, where they have taken control over New York City, all in the interest of the people.

Tales To Behold 6, Page 37: Centennia Strikes!

A special operative of The Odds is entering City Hall, to find out about the supposed captives.
Meanwhile, Gargantuan gets a piece of Centennia's might!

Terry Tornado In Peril

Also on tumblr
Bonus art! Former professional wrestler, part-time super-hero, fitness model and spokeswoman Terry Tornado is being ambushed by super-villains Armagedda, Insecto, Captain Perfect, and Dr Brain, and it seems the mysterious Mixtlicoatl is the instigator!

Mixtlicoatl, who is sometimes friend, sometimes enemy, belongs to tulio19mx

Tales To Behold 6, Page 36: Zap! Hkh… Bash! Zoosh!

The battle begins! Captain Evening and The Odds are fighting back valiantly!

Armagedda and more villains

Bonus art! Armagedda, powerful cosmic destroyer stranded on planet earth, in all her glory!

Remember, she got tricked by Mysto the Space-Wizard, into not destroying Earth. So she is trying it with more subtle means. Sometimes, she gets tricked into going on a date with the worst man in the world.

Plus, a rendering by DeviantArtist tulio19mx of the entire gang of villains from Tales To Behold–
Wicked Witch, Captain Perfect, Insecto, Dr Brain, Red Vicious, Jenny Nowhere and Armagedda! Thanks Tulio!

Tales To Behold 6, Page 35: Clash of the Titans

Without further words, the New Protectors attack!
No better way than to celebrate it with a big splash page!

No update this week

The Cosmic a Beholder sends his sincerest apologies- but look for a new page next week!

The current line-up of Tales To Behold's superteam: Merv the Griffin, Blue Knight, Centennia, Jung-La, Captain Evening and Armstrong Fatbuckle, the Human Skeleton.

Come back here every Monday for a new page of their "wacky" escapades, or order their adventures as nifty hand-made zines from BirdCageBottom Books!

Tales To Behold 6, Page 33: Here They Come

The robots were just the beginning. The New Protectors are about to face their challengers personally.

Tales To Behold 6 Page 32: The Best Concert Ever

As a reminder– Dr Brain got dragged into this event by his young guests on this page.
But how are Captain Evening and The Odds actually doing against the Protectors' forces?
Stay tuned!

Centennia Vs Anna Atom

Also on tumblr
Just how powerful is Anna Atom, the stranded heroine from Earth-K? I think Centennia, the Most Powerful Hero of this earth, is about to find out…

Monday, October 5, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 31: Smashing Robots

Our heroes jump into battle with great enthusiasm, and it seems, with great success.
So far, so good…

Monday, September 28, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 30: Brace Yourselves

That's a lot of robots, for a lot of dirty work.
The New Protectors don't even feel it's necessary to take on The Odds personally.

Monday, September 21, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 29: Rhetorical Questions

Now you know! There was never a doubt that The Odds would follow Captain Evening,
into this most uncertain mission!

Monday, September 14, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 28: Odds Against All!

This is happening! Captain Evening and The Odds are challenging the mightiest superteam of them all!

Tales To Behold 6 Bonus Track

Continuing where we left off last week, here's a little bonus drawing of Captain Evening and Hexia.

These two seem to have an interesting relation. Definitely on two different sides of the law, and seemingly arch-nemeses, doesn't prevent other kinds of interactions.
Hexia's first appearance was in the previous storyline.

Our regular feature continues tomorrow!

The Invisible Girl

Also on tumblr
Sue is one of those characters who actually grew and matured through her history. From a damsel in distress, often wearing an apron over her costume when making food for the family, (not shining a good light on how some of these early Marvel creators perceived women) she became a fierce fighter under John Byrne, when she changed her name to Invisible Woman, and has been ever since. Kinda neat to see this development as a whole.

Tales To Behold 6, Page 24: The Rancid

So much wisdom from a young party gal? Well, she is going to college after all.
(Major in Witchcraft and minor in Super-Villainy)
Will Dr. Brain actually go to see a band called The Rancid? Stay tuned!
We're leaving him for now and will turn out attention to Captain Evening next week!

The New Line-Up

For a while, the line-up of Captain Evening and The Odds consisted only of the Living Skeleton, the Blue Knight, Merv the Griffin and the Captain himself (see Tales To Behold 5).
Now there's a new member– Jung-La, the fierce female fury! Of course, this was planned since the beginning, as this post from 2010 shows. It just took the BEHOLDER a while to get to this point!

CYBERKITTENverse Crossovers

If you follow the BEHOLDER's DeviantArt account, you might have seen that there have been numerous interactions and little stories between the BEHOLDERverseand the stories of fellow Deviant cyberkitten01. Here is a batch of the latest artworks that incorporate heroes from both worlds, plus a bonus appearance of deviant adekii's Ionic Angel.

New Good Girl

Also on tumblr

Readers of Tales To Behold might recognize her from her appearance on last week's page– this superhero lady is revealed as Dr Brain's ex-wife and Wicked Witch Jesse's mother. Seems Dr. Brain still has some fondness for her. And the end of that page shows some ambiguity as to what actually happened…

Now I just need to find a name for her– I think it might be White Light, because she is so goodie-good!

Girl-Power

Power girl, (Kara Zor-El or Karen Starr), as seen in later issues of the New 52 “World’s Finest” series. (Also on tumblr)

Tales To Behold 6, Page 19: The Sleepover Part 2

We're continuing to explore the romantic misadventures of Dr Brain
(For "The Sleepover" Part 1, click here)
So this is his ex-wife, apparently a super-heroine and mother of the Wicked Witch.

Tales To Behold 6, Page 18: Newsflash

The situation is escalating in New York! The Protectors are not kidding around!

Monday, July 13, 2015

Tales To Behold 6, Page 17: Welcome to the Team!

Looks like our merry gang has acquired a brand-new addition to the team!
And what a charming one!

What the good Captain refers to, is their first encounter, when she was a member of the police.

Tales To Behold 6, Page 16: Too Weird or Not Weird Enough?

Good that Captain Evening was able to catch our brand-new heroine!
Otherwise this would have been a very short career in the BEHOLDERverse…

Tales To Behold 6, Page 15: Chaos In The Sky

Chaos and slapstick ensue in the helicopter that Hexia tries to escape with.
Also, dear pilot, this is no way to treat a lady!
