Happy 2015!

2014 is just about done and we're rocketing fast now to the new year!  I'm spending my night here with you guys and watching the New York ball drop on TV like my usual tradition.  I'm hoping for a better year for all of us.

Also, I wanted to announce some new permanent price reductions on my PDFs!  Just about everything is getting a meaty cut for 2015.

You can check out my Lulu Spotlight here or my Selz shop here.  Thanks so much for your support!  I always appreciate it!

Happy 2015, everyone!  Onward!

Happy Holidays! + A Sneak Peek

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays from Barbaric Brawn.  I hope that your holiday season has been going well and that your new year will be even better.

I also wanted to send a note of thanks to everyone who picked up a copy of Hercules vs Sergios on PDF.  Your support really means a lot to me and it helps to fund new projects and keep the site ad-and-subscription-free!  I hope that you find it worth every penny -- I always strive to make that true for every comic I produce.

Speaking of new projects, I have a couple of teaser works-in-progress to share with you for now.  This is a story based on an idea discussed between reader Sharlin and myself about two Marines working out and wrestling in a gym.  This gym is co-owned by my original character Officer Ronnie and frequented by two new original ebony studs, Nathan and Deshaun.

I'll have more info on this project early 2015.  Take care, everyone, and stay safe and warm this December.  Unless you happen to live in Australia, New Zealand, or the like... in which case, you guys should keep clothed in what Nathan and Deshaun are wearing as frequently as you like. :D

Hercules vs Sergios PDF

The total remake of one of my earlier stories, Hercules vs Sergios, is now complete and ready for sale!

This time, I did something a little differently than before when I add a new PDF to my store.  I've also created a 16:9 widescreen version in addition to the standard 9:7 ratio.  Both are exactly the same story with the same number of pages and the same content.  The only difference is the ratio of the image.

This remake of the story includes the alternate ending from before and the story has been refined and beefed up in various ways.  There are more panels now, some bonus images not seen in the original, and it's an all-around better experience.

I hope you guys enjoy this remake of Hercules vs Sergios!  Thank you as always!

1,000,000 Hits

Wow.  While I was working at getting the remake of Hercules vs Sergios done, the 1,000,000th page view count came and went!  I can't believe I've already hit a million views.  Thank you guys so much for hitting that milestone for me.  It feels pretty surreal, especially on the cusp of the new year.

I remember back when I started Barbaric Brawn and was only getting about 25-50 views a day.  When that number crawled up to 200 a day I was ecstatic -- like, over the moon happy.  Now it's a little over a thousand views a day and I wanted to say that it's thanks to you guys that I have the drive to keep writing and creating.

All my best,

In Hercules' Arms (WIP)

The remake of Hercules vs Sergios is coming along swiftly.  I'm aiming for a release of before Christmas at the rate it's going.  We'll see how it turns out. :D

In this panel (in what will be page 68), Sergios and Hercules have been fighting for a while and have built up a pretty good sweat under the sun at the younger buck's campsite.  Hercules has gotten the brown-haired stud in his crushing bearhug and refuses to let go!

The Confrontation

I've been doing some more work on the remake of Hercules vs Sergios and I thought I'd show some progress of panel 12 in Photoshop and tease Hercules' big pecs.  Because who wouldn't tease those pecs if they had the chance?
