View Full Version : Sir Real, of thought
A LONG time ago I found this:
It's not a GOOD comic, but it is kinda nifty. The hero of the story is a psychic projection kept inside a virtual world created from the thoughts of Earth's most powerful psychic.
Not as long ago I bought a bunch of CTVT glow bodies, and couldn't think of what to do with 'em. So's I figger; if this guy is actually made out of energy, then maybe he glows....
Not a complicated custom; but a good use for a glow body. (I have one more in the works, but that IS a complicated custom.)

Another awesome custom Don. The head sculpt rocks!! I'm a big fan of weird independent comics myself. The 80's really produced some crazy stuff. Keep up the good work
I've never heard of the character, but you sure did a good job of capturing his likeness! Nice!
I think if someone had HEARD of him I'd be surprised. It's a weird book, and a weird character.
The head glows too. You can buy glow varnish at the hardware store. We used to use it on the reissues of the old Aurora Monsters of the Movies kits; to reproduce the glow feature.

Hey Don C! Nice job on Sir Real. I created the character and did the writing and art on those Electric Fear books. Itís cool that someone chose this guy for a custom project and yes, you are correct his skin does glow. I actually did 5 issues of Electric Fear. The first 3 are on Ebay sometimes but # 4 and 5 had very limited distro. Hereís a newer drawing of Sir Real.
Unfortunately the comic book business isn't as friendly to independently published books as it used to be way back in the old days. I always wished i could have continued the series longer than I did but video games have pretty much absorbed the comics fan-base by now. Of course I love video games and that's why I'm developing a AAA FPS game based on the characters and stories from Electric Fear Comics.
Any of you guys video gamers?

Wow how Unreal is that or should i say Cool I'm sure Don's gonna get a kick out of the Creator seeing his idea come to life........Welcome Aboard Brian, Don's also an Illustrator...as I am... and I'm a hardcore Gamer myself. Isn't it neat to see ones ideas come to life...:grin:
I never heard of him either but I love the name. Great looking figure. Good sculpt and use of a glow body.

Five? FIVE?!?!!? Wow, I found the first issue by accident way back when it first came out. At the very beginning of the 80's Windsor had the greatest comic shop ever; but they closed around '83. (Probalems with staff I heard.) Since then we've been a pretty mainstream town as far as comics go. But for a while you never knew what you'd find.
I've wonderd if there were more issues. It's such an odd book; sorta virtual reality in reverse.

Now I gotta track down the rest of the series.

Hey Don C.
If you want copies of Electric Fear #2, 3D, 4 and 5, Iíll trade you the whole series, straight across for that Sir Real custom you made. Does that seem like a good deal?
Here's another character from Electric Fear and my new video game called ďPsychospaceĒ. Her name is Bianca Robeson (aka: ďBĒ). She rides her "Psyche Cycle" (aka: "Psych Bike", "Harmonic Attenuation Craft" or "The Pony") through Psychospace on a desperate mission to coalesce reality in the aftermath of The Thoughtstorm Wars. The floating, glowing eyeball thing is Ventrex, an intelligent voltaic-lifeform from a reality existing between dimensions called Interspace. Together B and Ventrex are the only beings capable of saving the day in the final level of gameplay in Psychospace.
I just finished the game design for this project and I have a development team working on a game demo now. The next step is to try to get pitch meetings with game publishers, which Iím working on but isnít easy. Also, this is the first time Iíve written anything about this game concept on the internet anywhere so youíre all hearing about it first. Who knows if Iíll ever get the game published, but Iím trying. Tell all your gamer friends about it. Iím building a website to help promote it, too, but itís not done yet.

HEEHEEHEEEEEE!!!!!! Cool! PM me an addy and I'll ship him off. Now I can get caught up with the story.

Yeah; I DEFINITELY need to get caught up! I got a chance to read the first 40 or so issues of the original Fantastic Four comic; and I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the Electric Fear comic has that surreal, psychedelic sci-fi vibe going on. Like the original FF. But without the infighting, since it looks like a significant portion of the opposition gets blown up in the first issue.

THe problem with ANYTHING these days is there are so many intentional obstacles put in place by the big companies. Dunno if video games work like tv and movies, but if they do it'll be tough to get anyone to look at ANYTHING you do. My favourite scam was to phone places under the premise that I was doing research for a thesis paper (not ENTIRELY a lie...) and then during the interview sort of slip in my pitch. Most places have a setup that ensures you never get to talk to ANYONE who counts. That way if they do something similar to an idea you've pitched they can't be sued. (This became the standard after the TIny Toon's thing.)
