The story of Powernaut 1988 is underway - complete with weird guest stars.


I have tried to increase my artistic standards for this series, and for 
Powernaut Comics through the 1990s.  I need to be ready for really good 
production values in that decade.  I used to say often, when I wrote a 
good story, "This is such as I have never done before."  I think I can 
say that again now.

*  The resolution is doubled, to match Power School 2013.

*  I am drawing this series with a thinner pen.  (I introduced the 
thicker pen during Powernaut 1955.  It was so effective at the smaller 
scale, I kept it thereafter.)

*  I have put in some shadows, and made character line-drawing colors 
other than pure black.  Whatever failings Powernaut 1987 may have had, 
its experimental color schemes were well received.  And the 1992 comics 
will need the shadows; this is on record in Powernaut 2005.

*  It's also time for some *useful* art effects.  I've dug up some flame 
reference (once used for the Demon Missionaries from Planet Hell), to 
use as a tool for coloring all those beings with flaming heads.  I've 
found many clouds from my personal photos, for filling in teleportals. 
And I've found some useful fill patterns for stuff like carpet and maybe
