The Vile Old Man

The unhappy looking old man and his buffed attendant are from the 1999/2000 version of King Roach. That version of the story was set in modern day America. The old man was the head of a top secret organization that had developed advanced technological and biological weapons. Of course, one of their bioweapons, a monster called Saur Thirteen had escaped and was terrorizing the countryside. King Roach and Saur Thirteen were to fight and then, once King Roach had defeated Saur Thirteen, the old man’s organization would be after King Roach to make him one of their weapons. It wasn’t exactly a fresh idea then and it’s only gotten more stale over the years.

I did actually get a chunk of art penciled for this version of the story. No doubt I’ll post it once I find it.
