I think this is the most insane thing I've ever been involved in... Anyway, I'll show you those hare-brained Greenhoerns a little later. Please don't expect some typically brave heros, determined to fight monsters. Actually, they were never meant to be heros... but then everyone started referring to them as heros. As superheros.

"...I told them who they were and they became it."


  1. Great poster my friend. Love the colours!

  2. BRRRRR ! anxious and furious ! Perfect !

  3. Considering I am from Texas...I am confused by the spelling of Hoerns? is this just how you spell it in Austria? what is the meaning of this heheh

  4. Rawls! Big thanks, I'm glad you do!

    Carlos, thanks! I'll show those "heros", soon :)

    Achdé! Big thanks, too! Love your works so much.

    Chad! How are you? Sorry for confusing you :) "Hoerns" is a sort of "fusion" of the English word horns and the Austrian/German word Hörner (Horns means Hörner in German). Cheers!
