Our Story So Far...

It's been almost a year since the defeat of Brainitron, the greatest villain the citizens of Capital City have ever known (and there's been a few). Many perished, but the shadow that permeated this great city has finally begun to lift thanks to one man - The Trouble - a hero who before that day was largely unknown.

This last 12 months has been among the most peaceful in the city's long and difficult history, however evil stirs once again. As before Capital City finds itself in need of a hero, luckily they've got one. But is he up to the task? Can this dark tide of villainy be stopped? Who knows. It’s time to sack-up and find out. For only one thing is certain: There's gonna be trouble!


Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Where does the comic take place?
    The Trouble & Dangerous takes place in the fictional city of "Capital City," though unlike places such as Gothem and Metropolis it does not currently have a real-world analog.

  2. What are The Troubles actual super powers?
    The Troubles only real power is that he's incredilby tough and can stand up to a lot of punishment. He has a certain amount of super-strength, but many past heroes and villains have been considerably stronger.

  3. Does The Trouble have an origin?
    I'm sure he does, but it's not something that we find terribly interesting at this point in time. There is a lot of information throughout the comic about how he became the primary (and currently only) hero in the city. That'll have to do for now.

  4. Why is Kid Fury sometimes around and sometimes not?
    We've established in Chapter 3 that Kid Fury goes to school during the day and probably has some other normal kid activities.

    The more functional answer is that sometimes Kid Fury can contribute to the story (or even take it over) and sometimes his involvement doesn't make sense or is unnecessary. There is plenty of good Kid Fury stuff to come in future chapters though, so don't worry!

  5. What's the deal with the traffic cone at the end of Chapter 2?
    You'll just have to keep reading to find out!

Making the Comic

The Trouble and Dangerous is a 100% digital and vector prodution. We use Adobe Illustrator to create all the artwork, layout and dialog for the comic pages. This has some drawbacks, but it also gives us the ability to shift, rearrange, repurpose and scale all the artwork as needed.

The characters are "built" to be posable and modular within the limits of 2D. Meaning a base character model can be shifted pretty easily into a different position. So once a certain amount of work has been done to create these character models much can be done with them pretty quickly, and as the art library grows so do our options. But it's really just a starting point. Most of the work now comes in making each instance of the character model look unique. Additionally, there will always be "hero" poses that require a pretty much complete recreation of the character.

The Trouble and Dangerous was originally going to be a short Flash animation series which is how all this came about. Flash has some basic rigging tools (much like 3D software) that along with the modular characters would likely have allowed us to get quite a bit of life out of a pretty simple character.
