I stumbled across this guy and he caught my attention because he looked like Cyclops. Does every company have a character that looks like Cyclops? lol I wanted to do Solar too, knock them both out in one fell swoop, but I only had one Cyclops head. So, I went with this guy instead. Sanded the visor down a little and sculpted the goggles over it. Making a yellow lightning bolt was rough, but with it being over black, evening out the edges was a bit simpler. The only thing I forgot was the fingerless portion of the gloves. I seem to have a running streak going with that. I really like the design of this guy, and until I started working on him I didn't actually know that the original concept apparently came from Space Ghost. Made sense considering his own space status. Jace, Jan, and Blip all actually had a few uncredited background cameos, as well. A fairly popular character considering he's only had about 102 comics published over the years, thus far.

I know what you mean about cyclops in every comic company, lol the half-mask look with a visor just seems to be one of those basic superhero themes that pop up again and again, like the utterly pointless domino mask Anyway, he lloks really cool, great job, especially since there will most likely NEVER be an "official" one released. excelnt work!

OH YEAH! Nexus! Steve Rude and Mike Baron! Great stuff from back in the day. The animated style of their comics were cool and had a space ghosty feel, but much, much more! Great homage to a early 80's cult legend!
