eye over sea is my new t-shirt company independent of and not affiliated with Cartwheel Group 3 Comics. eye over sea is still very much a work-in-progress and the debut design is still in the early stages. My hope is that t-shirt sales will allow me to pay an artist to do some CG3 work. Please ‘like’ the eye over sea Facebook Page to keep up with updates on and progress of the debut design.

Thank You and Cheers.

CG3 Changing from Community/Collective Model to Small Online Press/Publisher Model

Standard

The Cartwheel Group 3 Comics business model will be changing from that of a community collective to a small online publisher/press. Updates will be made to the main site and all social media sites as needed to reflect this change.

Blurbs of Cycle 1 (Launch Cycle) Projects/Stories

Standard

Currently an artist is needed for each of these projects. If interested please email Cartwheel Group 3 Comics at cartwheelgroup3@gmail.com and write “Interested Artist” in the subject line of your message.

See this posted on the Current Projects Page here.

Cycle 1 (Launch Cycle)
These are the six titles (stories) that will launch Cartwheel Group 3 Comics.

Polka Dots & Plaid:  Drawing inspiration from What Not to Wear and A Clockwork Orange, Polka Dots and Plaid are the hosts of a week-long makeover show of the same name where guests’ style is made-over in front of the camera while their souls are made-over behind it.

Fame + Fortune:  The Phamai (pronounced famay and heard as “fame” to human ears) are an alien race who have chosen a human champion and endowed him with super powers to fight off an impending monster invasion of earth.

Adelmira, the War Mage:  A Frazettian-style sorceress warrior woman from another dimension crosses over to earth through the moon to chase and kill an incorporeal dragon before the prophecy of it being birthed into physicality by three earthen zombie brides is fulfilled.

Trinity:  The tale of a vampire (Reckless Abandon), man-made shape-shifting human monster (Mongrel), and space sorcerer (Soul Weaver), who represent the mind, body, and soul, and how they met while running away from They, an organization that may have been instrumental in their coming together.

Immortals, Inc.: Our version of “the seven” (You know who they are!), with Gilded Lady, Nonchalant, That Guy!, Ebb & Flow, Time Bandit, Little Johnny Gomez, and Outlier, as their base is attacked by a known enemy.

Panamaniac: An adventure of Panama’s premiere superhero with sidekick, Panama Joven (Young Panama), while defending the regular folk of the nation.

Che Williams & Orion Vang No Longer with Cartwheel Group 3 Comics

Standard

Artists Che Willams and Orion Vang have both decided to pursue other opportunities.  So, neither artist will be continuing work on any Cartwheel Group 3 Comics.  We wish them luck on their future endeavors.

Williams was assigned to the story of Trinity featuring characters Reckless Abandon, Mongrel, and Soul Weaver.  Thanks to him for at least completing the character design for Reckless Abandon.  That leaves the character designs for Mongrel and Soul Weaver to be completed.

Vang was assigned to Fame & Fortune and got through some sketches of one of the supporting cast members, Juan Perez.  His sketches will at least provide a springboard for a future artist to bounce off of.

Replacement artists for these stories have not been secured at this time, but because of our one-stand-alone-story-a-month model, we are always open to new artists who may be interested in working on a Cartwheel Group 3 Comics project.  If interested, please email Cartwheel Group 3 Comics at cartwheelgroup3@gmail.com.
