Capture Creatures now a monthly comic series!

CC01

 

We’ve been awful quiet on this website, holding back the last few creatures (which you can see in the B9 hardcover edition right now), but now we are happy to show what we’ve been planning all this time! We’re incredibly proud to announce our first monthly comic series, Capture Creatures, with our buddies at Boom Studios! Feels good to be making comics again! More on the story at Comics Alliance, with amazing variant covers by Joy Ang, Amanda Visell and Missy Pena!

Staant [143 of 151]

Physically strong Puugs eventually diverge from their colony and evolve into Staant. Staants make a conscious decision to sacrifice their building ability for superior defensive qualities. Still small in stature, they team with countless other Staants to protect their colonies from aggressors. Staant’s head-pincers grow quickly, often snapping them off themselves to use as weapons. When still attached to their heads, these pincers deliver powerful stings.

Scoot [142 of 151]

This painting is for sale! Also we’re at SPX this weekend in Bethesda, MD at the TopatoCo tables (W13-20) where we will be releasing the new 300+ page Capture Creatures book!

Scoot’s speed and lack of body-mass allow it to run on water for up to a mile. However, if a body of water is longer than a mile, Scoot is liable to sink. As a plant creature, Scoot thrives on water and will often stay underwater, breathing through the flower on its tail. Camouflaged underwater as a lilipad, he is often mistaken for Lilipaddle, which can lead to some tense encounters.

Quokick [141 of 151]

The evolution and protector of Jarbounce, Quokick is a more adept fighter. Quokick have many young, but only one at a time can be protected in its pouch, usually the runt of the litter. Their appearance is indicative of their docility, but its stubby appendages betray little of their inner strength.

Paraptor [140 of 151]

This painting is for sale!

Paraptors evolve from wild Therowing. In this form, Paraptor gains articulate claws on its wings and feet. Over time its rear reptilian frill sprouts feathers and extends, significantly aiding in stabilising flight. Although unable to move its tail independently, Paraptor swings its entire body in the direction of its enemy, rendering its tail a powerful cudgel.

Scoal [139 of 151]

This painting is for sale!

A flame creature, Scoal sources its power from its spots. These spots are white hot, burning at over eight thousand degrees kelvin. Scoal’s body efficiently disperses this heat, as the rest of its body is the same temperature as any non-flame creature.

Where have the Capture Creatures been the last couple of months, you ask?

Well, after the gallery show we were totally burned out (and we also had the best time ever). Then San Diego Comic Con rolled around and kicked our butts again (and we had the best time ever again). Then we weren’t exactly sure when our book would be coming out due to things like boats that carry books from faraway places.

However, we are now somewhat refreshed and happy to announce that the book is on its way from the B9 Kingdom! Kickstarter books will be going out soon!

We will also have copies of the book at SPX (Small Press Expo) in Bethesda, MD where we will be tabling with our lovely friends at TopatoCo!

Stackabara [138 of 151]

045

When a Craxrax rises high enough in its pack hierarchy, it is permitted to feast upon rare earth minerals, beginning its evolution.  Digging deep down into the earth, Stackabara mines minerals that provide nourishment to the next generation of Stackabaras. Their saber teeth are primarily used to pry gems free from rocks, but when required can also be used as weapons.

It’s time for San Diego Comic Con! Booth 2743 (Gallery Nucleus)! Check out the map to our booth here!

Cramster [137 of 151]

044

 

Cramster appears to be a rather hungry fellow. They mostly chew on rocks to hone the flat, clamping teeth they use to dig tunnels through tree roots and solid earth. Cramsters’ teeth are always growing, so they spend up to eight hours a day shaping them.

Here comes San Diego Comic Con! We have moved to Gallery Nucleus’ booth #2743! We will be debuting the 24×36 inch Capture Creatures poster, with all 151 creatures on it, as well as our first resin toy! We’ll be there Wednesday through Sunday! We also recently had some server difficulties, so a couple of recent creatures are missing. Updates will resume this week and the missing creatures will be restored shortly!
