Captain Numbskull

in Space

Space. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it goes on forever. There is an infinite number of points in the space between here and there. At each point there awaits untold dangers and unforeseeable peril. Few men dare to brave this great emptiness alone. Our good captain is one of them and no amount of space will keep him from the adventure that lies ahead.

excerpt from CaptainNumbskull.com

Captain Numbskull in Space is a comic book about a bumbling space pirate and his exploits in space.

Numbskull was originally created as a random filler comic for The Vermilion (ULL’s student newspaper) during the summer of 2005. Only two strips in its original form were created and published before the regular comics returned in the fall.

The concept was so appealing, however, I continued sketching Numbskull related concept art until I finally decided to create a comic book based on the character. This would be my first foray into actual print comic books.

Due to scholastic and work related obligations, the production of the Numbskull comic was halted several times.

It was finally completed and, thanks to a successful Kickstarter, printed in 2014.
