Riddler's Rocktober
About this creation
First Episode HERE.





































Behind the Scenes:



I mentioned in my first post that it would be a week or two before posting this one, but a change in the work schedule moved things up a bit. So please click the link at the top of the post if you didn't get a chance to see the introduction to this little project yet. Meanwhile, here are a few "behind the scenes" shots of the MOCs used in this post...














(built before Brick Forge came out with guitars...*sigh*)



I had intentions of taking this farther, but for the time being this is as far as I could get with the story line before other interests took over. I may return to this some day - the character has a lot of potential with both his current mischief, and his dark road to this current state of violent psychosis.

My main building interests, however, lie in the completion of the Eye of Chaos, and a return to my Apocalypsis series...which should start to finally see some progress again once Brickworld 2011 is over. For those who haven't heard me b*$!#ing about it, a project for BW has consumed all of my financial resources this year, along with any building time (Look for the post on that in a couple of weeks). It will have been well worth the time and trouble, but I'm looking forward to getting back to my own work after such a long hiatus.



Thanks for visiting!

Excellent story Mark, and of course the sets are flawless! It is a bit messed up to have a cliffhanger and then no happy ending my friend! LMAO

hi mark! mmm, i expected too much, a few things i thought you d do, that you did nt, like; all skins like the batman comics, [peach] only lego builds, more stages [sets] and a batman appearance, while i find batman missing in the first episode interesting, i find it a bit short. still, the sets were looking awesome, presentation professional, and the scheme was very interesting!!! i like it a lot! i found the sarcasm of the riddler the most promising aspect of this serie! i appreciate you sharing your technique on this, as i use this technique too, it s basicly making mini movies, it super! i love it!!! i can t wait to see your next!!! good luck mark!!!

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Brilliant as expected. What I would like to know is, when you decide to make a comic, do you start with writing the story/text down, scribbling the whole pages or do you start building first?
These things almost always start with an idea about some event within the story, and a visual to go along with it. In this case, I thought of the "Rocktober" theme and a big concert event, which inevitably created imediate visuals of the area. After that, I started building a story around the original idea or vision, always concious of the fact that whatever I came up with, would need to translate well into Lego.

OMG all the characters speaking "in quotes" give such a weird effect while you're reading... great stuff anyway :)

Quoting Hans DendauwNPD Speaking of the 'Eye', did you have that on display in Indy? I swear I saw it in a picture someone posted on Flickr...oh yeah, cool comic=P ~H
Yeah, the Eye made an appearance at BW Indy. It was my first chance to see how the top and bottom sections were going to fit together, and to see if the dern thang was going to stand up. To my surprise and delight, she passed with flying colors. Now...if I can just get through BW so I can get back to her!

Great stuff Mark, superbly edited and polished up, but lets not ignore some sweet builds here too. Once again the bar is set high. But Def Lep? Wouldn't be on my dream line-up mate!

A very well built, edited, and presented creation. The stage is brilliant as is your sleek looking office. Once again, I am in awe of your photo editing skills. Cheers Amigo.

Quoting Nick Doyle Just wondering...will Batman himself be involved in this series?
Dunno...probably? The group I originally did these for were villans, and we were telling their stories rather than focusing on any heroes. But if I were to continue, I honestly can't see a Riddler without a Batman...right?

Nice! I'm hooked and can't wait for Batman to come swinging in! Too bad you won't be revisiting this story soon:( Anyway, I'd say the arena build is my favorite part with lots of tasty (and accurate) details.

Quoting Jeff Fauble You know, I remember last year when this creation was titled "Phipson is a Sissy-pated, Nancy-Boy". Why the change of heart? :P
Wow, you caught that one, heh? HAHAHAHAHAHA...Last year Sean asked Chris and I to post something...anything...to test out a MOCpages issue. I think it might have been up for like two minutes. Just goes to show...you're never safe around these here parts!

Your use of light in your pictures (the glow from the teleconference screen for example) is amazing. I am also taken with how well you capture the visual feel of a comic strip. The word bubbles, the star bursts around exclamations, all of it. A pure delight. Attack!

What are you trying to do? Put me out of business? Lovely work here, and the shot of the crowd looking down on the stage is inspiring and actually gave me a clue about something I'm toying with for Glomshire Knights. (Hey kids, you can read my comic right here http://mocpages.com/moc.php/271733 ) You know I love this little story you've got going, and I think a certain friend of ours might just be able to provide certain Bat-advice for any coolio equipment the Caped Crusader might use. Just awesome my man, just awesome!

No offense taken whatsoever. In fact, I tend to agree with you. This was made a while back when I was less conscious of the primary viewer's ages on MOCpages. And while it's nothing more than what you'll find on the average sit come, more recent posts will still find me a bit more cautious with language these days. ;)
