The story this image represents will eventually make its way to Weasyl, but until then you can read it on our main base of operations on DeviantArt:
While comic book series usually have a cover for each issue, or chapter in our case, it would eventually be a financial nightmare to keep that going, resulting in approximately 30 pics.
Instead, we've resolved to have one comprehensive summarizing cover page for each story related to this.
This cover is for our second and more serious story arc, "Fire Fox"!
Here's a description of the story:
"Dumper/junker Mark E. Pyre abandons his complacency for a rock-bottom life to undergo a drastic transformation, both physically and ideologically.
Can one of the universe's biggest scumbags become a small hero?
Read on to find out!"
"Fire Fox is inspired by Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, Firefly, Titan A.E., Star Fox, Zootopia, Ratchet & Clank, Kung Fu Panda, The Penguins of Madagascar, and more!"
I love just how contrasting this cover is compared to the "S.U.P.E.R." one. Just looking back and forth between them, you can just tell how different the stories are. That cover is all bright and triumphant, while this cover uses darker colors all around and just seems more serious. They're both perfect representations for the stories they're attached to.
You may be wondering which one of the foxes depicted is Fire Fox, a.k.a. Mark E. Pyre? The answer is, well, they BOTH are. Obviously, we are currently following the adventures of the full-sized, brown-clad Mark to the left. The Mark on the right, however, is what he will eventually turn into and then remain for a loooooooong time. The Mark on the right IS Fire Fox. As for how he gets that way? Well, that's a big part of the story we're working on. The colors of his clothing are a big spoiler to that, though, which is why I wanted to wait a little longer to post this. But oh well.
So, there are a few smaller things I would like to direct your attention to on this comic cover.
The white side bar to the upper-left still contains a list of the kinds of content you will find throughout this story. Mark's 4th-wall breaks extend even here!
The infinity symbol reflects how this cover represents every chapter/issue of the "Fire Fox" story. We simply can't afford having a cover made for every chapter/issue, like how actual comics are done.
The most important thing to point out, though, is the round, stylized gold badge next to the BC logo.
This is our "Seal of Approval", which will represent how normal readers will likely approve of a story because it lacks the fetishy content that some of our other stories will contain. Any story arc with this badge on its comic cover picture will have NO age regression, NO baby fur content, and NO diaper content. We're still desperately trying to attract people to our stories, and while we will certainly continue to entertain people who ARE into that kind of content, we also don't want to scare others away by making them think that's all we can write about.
