Metatron: The Living Meteorite Comic by Teagle Metatron: The Living Meteorite Comic by Teagle

The origin of Metatron, the Living Meteorite. 

Hopefully a prologue, if I can find the time to keep working on new pages.


I've numbered the pages, because I realise everyone has different reading habits, and people have read some of my comics out of order on deviantart before.

Metatron's almost gorilla-like arm/leg proportions make for awesome brawlin' poses -- the put-up-yer-dukes stance, throwin' a punch, grappling on one knee, etc. Good-o!

Well, there's that -- but I think there's lots of crouching-to-fight (page 2 last panel, page 4 panel 3) or throwing-a-punch frames (page 2 panel 3) which convey the action much better because of stylized-ly big long arms and squat legs.

'n the Evil's blobby manifestations as a chaos of eyes, teeth-encrusted mouths and the occasional horn is boffo-terrif, too!

thanks! recetly I've been trying to play around ith poses a lot more, it's something I've struggled with for a while, and sort of loosening up, and not caring so much about getting exact proportions for each panel has really helped.

In newer comics I've just been trying to get movement right, and it's helping. Hopefully there will be more pages soon!

If this were a real comic, I'd read the hell out of it.:D (Big Grin)

thanks! I'm working on a few more pages. I'm hoping to get it up to about 40 so I can make a self published comic for some conventions next year.

Oddly Metatron's origin story is somewhat similar to the teachings of the Church of Scientology, what with the souls of dead aliens travelling threw the universe and possessing other living beings and needing to be exercised lol. None the less, cool comic, I love the simple but stylized way you draw, especially your space scenes.

christ! that must have been totaly subconcious.
I didn't even think of that when I was drawing this. You're totally right.

I wrote this during a period of my life when a few of my family were very ill, and Metatron was supposed to be this positive energy fighting against all of the negative thoughts, frustrations and illnesses everyone was going through.

I was thinking of grounding the character later on in his story, and binding him to a soul on earth to a boy named Enoch (a little like Thor), to reference the transformation of the scribe Enoch when he was brought to Heaven.

All mythologies share a lot of the same foundations based on deep but pretty basic human needs. I bet if you asked L. Ron Hubbard why he wrote Scientology mythology the way he did he'd give almost the exact same answer as yours, giving general negativities some kind physical (or tangible) form to point a finger at and say "We have to beat that!" seams to really help people focus on and deal with those same negativities in reality.

Also, I honestly don't know the story of Enoch (I'll probably look it up now lol) but I always loved when people do subtle references to other things in their stories like that, so it sounds cool to me. I recently was reading about how the Zelda game Majora's Mask subtly references the 5 stages of grief in the way the levels and story are structured, and even though it might just be a coincidental pattern someone noticed, I still thought it sure would make for a cool idea for writing fiction.
