anonymousamethyst  asked:

Can I have an Eilat Stone dragon?

In the ruins of a forgotten temple mottled hides of green and blue carved in ancient patterns dance amongst the desert dust. They are called The Old King’s Dragons. 

Nobody remembers now who the Old King was, but his dragons remain. 

It is said that if you come in need and bring an offering for the birds, the dragons will grant you audience. Will grant you wisdom. Few knowledge seekers return.


so yeah my fav show ever aint gettin the rep it deserves pLS

edit: i forgot that slide there. the first one in the text. it’s supposed to be fourth. im a lil silly rn.


For anyone who hasn’t read it, here’s the short Solomon Stone Christmas Special that Matt Digges and I did a few years ago. I think you can probably pin it down to the last December before I started working full-time at ComicsAlliance – it was the middle of December and I had a dumb idea about Solomon fighting Atnas the Anti-Santa, and wrote it in an hour. Matt buckled down and drew the whole thing in something like a week, and we got it out just in time.

For those of you who don’t know, Solomon Stone is a half-vampire private detective and skateboard champion (the other half is wizard, which he learned when he was sent as an adventurous teen to Rookstone’s Academy For Magically Gifted Youngsters). His sidekick and lady love is Minxy Flatbush, the daughter of the Mayor of England. Originally I would post his adventures as chapters of my sadly unpublished urban fantasy novel series, but then Matthew Bramble drew a few full-length 24-page comics that we posted, where Solomon faced off against Tyrannosaurus Hex, the Dinosaur Witch, and Dorian DeWolfe, his arch-rival, a werewolf BMX champion private investigator.

It was pretty obviously a parody of everything that bugged me about terrible modern fantasy novels (it’s no coincidence that I was writing Sol at the same time that I was annotating the Anita Blake comic, and you can see the multiple Twilight references in the strip above), which is why Minxy exists solely as a collection of faux-anglophile slang, plot exposition and dubious sex appeal, but I’ll admit that by the time Sol was skateboarding into a volcano to fight the ghosts of the dinosaurs with his magic guns (guns that had magic wands taped to the barrels), I had some genuine affection for him. Also, I will never not laugh at Smithy’s joke about drawing him with exactly half of a reflection, split vertically right down the middle.

Oh, incidentally, if you’re wondering about the background in pages 1 and 2, Solomon and Minxy live in the Cosmodrome, a planetarium/skatepark.

Anyway, do enjoy this short Christmas adventure with Atnas, who dresses in green and black and lives at the south pole with his factory full of giants. Not gonna lie, I’m still pretty proud of Boxing Dave.
