Hot Wheels Issue #50...

A look at the latest cars…

Hi Guys,

Here is another monthly sneak peak at the cars you’ll see in issue #50 of the Hot Wheels comic, to whet your appetite.

The two cars are respectively:

Night Burner – From the story: “Night Burner Burn-UP!”

Motoblade – From the story: “Blade Runner!”

Both stories are produced by the same gang as always:

Written by – "Iridescent" Ian Rimmer

Pencilled, Inked and Computer Coloured by – "True-Blue" Tim P
Edited by – "Jacinth-Like" James Hill

With Production Design by – "Reddish" Rob Sharp

In the Blade Runner story, Ian introduces the Dark Claw Industries Head Quarters and Factory for the first time, which was fun for me to design on page 1. Ian also introduces the inner sanctum of Diesel Darkclaw’s office, on page 2, which lead me to finding a way to introduce some new characters, not written into the script as a means to enlarge the cast and try to give the stories the potential to look at new directions for future stories. You’ll see more of one of them in the next issue, #51.

I am looking forward, as always, to hearing what you think of this latest artwork. The comics will be on sale soon, so don’t forget to order a copy!!!

As a teaser for the next issue following, Issue #51, which I am finishing off as you read this, the two cars for fans of Hot Wheels will be Croc Rod and CUL8R.

Until next time have fun!

Hey Tim,
Hope all is well.

As usual, I dig these 2 cars very much.
Always enjoy seeing your art.

Perhaps after the issue is released you can post a picture of that DCI HQ & Factory, or a sneek peek of DD office w/the new characters you came up with.

Till next time.

Hi Emilio,

Yeah, things are manic as ever here, but I'm doing fine, so thanks for asking.

Hope all is well at your end?

Thanks ever so much for the very kind words. I'm glad you like them.

Yeah I will certainly be posting a couple of the panels up here for folks to see.

Hopefully folks can see how I have subtly changed the look of the comic strip, since taking it over and I continue to do so.

The incredible thing is, it's now 12 months since I took over the Hot Wheels comic and it has flown.

Anyhow speaking of which, I have to go back to the latest episodes and finish them off for issue #51, so I gotta dash.

Thanks as always for dropping by.

Best Wishes,
