The Trouble With Rex page 26 (final page) & notes


Oh no, say it ain’t so…

Our final page brings our final twist, and it’s a kicker for fans of poor Hudson Beck. Speaking of our final page… well, it is and it isn’t. We’re bringing volume one to a close, but there is clearly another story here that needs telling. All of Team Propeller is committed to telling that story in a second volume, but first we’re going to explore some ways to make our baby a little more bank account-friendly.

Step one of that process is transferring volume one to Comixology. If all goes according to plan, we’ll have something on there by the end of the year, at a very reasonable price. So if you’re looking for a way to show your appreciation for our efforts and help fund more Propeller, this is it. If that’s not enough to tempt you, I can announce that the Comixology-exclusive Dial P For Power will feature 24 pages of Alberto Muriel’s gorgeous artwork (thirteen of which have never been seen on this website). Follow on Twitter to guarantee you don’t miss out on the when and the where of it all.

We’ve made a lot of friends since starting this comic, but I’m going to take a moment to point you all in the direction of one in particular. Ryan K. Lindsay is, without question, one of the most generous people working in comics right now and he’s also one of the talented ones. He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign where you can pick up an entire issue of a great-looking (digital) comic for $1. Please consider backing this fantastic creator and his noir-tastic new comic. I have.

Finally, a huge thank you to the rest of Team Propeller: Alberto Muriel, HdE, and Rodolfo Reyes. These gentlemen are creative titans, and I have been consistently awed and floored by their professional and inspirational work on this series.

And, of course, thank you to all of our readers. Whether here from the beginning or late to the party, we are immensely grateful to each and every one of you who has read, enjoyed, commented, and helped spread the word about our little comic. Thank you.

Anyone who wants the first word on my future comic projects (including the future of Propeller) would be well advised to head over to Twitter and follow me. See my highs and lows first-hand. Witness my fumbling attempts at “networking”. And I may even deliberately amuse you once in a while. Michael Jai White (aka Spawn) follows me so you’ll be in good company.

Those who like Alberto’s fantastic artwork or appreciate his beardy wisdom (I am so jealous of that beard) should follow him here. I do!

Rex And Hudson By Guest Artists


As part of an ill-fated attempt to promote Propeller, I commissioned artwork from some of my favourite artists. The idea was for these images to display a lighter, more humorous side to our main characters that you are unlikely to see in the pages of the usually-pretty-serious comic. In each and every case, the artists delivered above and beyond what I could reasonably have expected. I will be forever grateful to these guys.

Adam Moore, better known online as Laemeur, provided two pieces for the Propeller Gallery. The first is a mad science take on Rex and Hudson and introduces an ill-prepared world to the horror of Toadson.


Adam’s second contribution shows what happens when you disturb Rex’s enjoyment of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians“. Just to avoid any confusion, Hudson has been walking for quite some time and Rex is just arriving in the taxi.


Those who wish to worship at the electronic altar of Laemeur can do so here and here. It is well worth your time.


Next up is Dave Bardin, who provided us with a look at Rex and Hudson facing down a zombie apocalypse.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that you follow, like and subscribe to all-things-Bardin immediately. He has BIG things coming in the future and I wouldn’t want any of you to miss out. Commence your cyber-stalking here, here or 140 characters at a time here.


Last, but by no means least, is Steven Howard. There are a lot of great webcomics out there, and a lot more that aren’t so great. Many of these not-so-great comics are experiencing tremendous success, however, because of a few shared characteristics. So why wouldn’t Propeller jump on the bandwagon and use those themes for our own nefarious purposes?

UPDATE: Steve just sent in a second picture that is every bit as incredible as the first. Poor Hudson and Abigail. Even movie night can’t escape Rex’s drama!

You can follow Steve’s continuing adventures in art-ing at the following link: link. He’s also a regular contributor to Comics Should Be Good!’s The Line It Is Drawn, where he and a handful of other talented artists do great things on a weekly basis!

If anybody else out there would like to send us a picture of Rex, Hudson or anything Propeller-related, we’ll proudly display it on the site. Unless it’s obscene. Or not obscene enough.

What If… Alfred Hitchcock Had Made Superhero Movies?


To celebrate Alberto Muriel taking over as the regular artist on Propeller, we’ve decided to give our readers a little something extra. Given the huge influence of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies on our own “Superpowered Suspense Story”, we thought it would be interesting to reimagine some iconic Hitchcock moments with a super twist. So without further ado, Cinema Propeller presents the stars of superhero movies in the films of Alfred Hitchcock, as drawn by our very own Alberto. Enjoy!
