New King This Friday!

Hey Gang,
Just a friendly reminder that this Friday a new colored King of the Unknown page goes up on this very website!  That’s just a few short days away, just sayin’!

In the mean time, you can get caught up again with story so far and also check out this other awesome webcomic by Rodrigo Klukiewcz called The Temple!  It has some really nice artwork and a really fun story, so go check it out!

The King’s Return is Imminent!

Hey Gang!
It’s not a joke! It’s not a hoax! There will be a new colored King of the Unknown page up on the website by this time next Friday!  The pages are being scheduled this very weekend, so it’s for reals this time you guys!

That’s just the start though, as you will get a new colored page every Friday for a month!

I know it has been a while since I posted any new colored pages, so I’d like to build back some of that momentum the comic has lost over time.

So stay tuned and check back here next Friday folks!

Welcome to My Madness

Hey Gang,

Last fall this website needed help in a big way as we had to find a new host in a very short amount of time, but luckily we had L Jámal Walton on our side, and he saved the day by providing us with new hosting services and helping out with the transfer of the site.  Now the very gracious and talented Mr. Walton has a pretty sweet artbook out called “Welcome to My Madness: the Art of L Jámal Walton” over on Kickstarter that you should all check out!

The concept behind the book is pretty rad too, here’s the rundown on the book:

“Life is a not a destination, it’s a journey.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

36 years, 3 months, 5 days… that is the span of Bob Marley’s life. That’s the “Marley Mark”. 

As a teenager, L Jamal Walton was greatly influenced by the music and life of Bob Maely and remember saying that I would be satisfied living as long as Bob Marley. He set my life towards that destination… 12 October 2013. Now as that destination approaches, the foolishness of youth has been replaced by the realization that everyone’s journey is different. Welcome to My Madness is a 150-paged, full color art book that represents Jamal’s 36 year growth as an artist as he journeys beyond his Marley Mark.

So go over to Kickstarter and give some support to this cool project in anyway you can.

Also, more King of the Unknown coming soon!  I promise! :)

That’s a Strange Kid

Hey Gang,
Even though it’s been a while since there was a comic update on the site, King of the Unknown is still getting some recognition and reviews. Case in point, this excellent write up over at strangekidsclub.com

From their article I could really tell that the crew over there got what I was going for with this comic, and reading stuff like this really makes all the time and effort I put into the comic worth it. So big thanks to the gang over at Strange Kids Club for checking out the King!

Also, I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated the website with a new comic page, but rest assured that I am diligently working on new KotU pages, and I have a few other reasons for not posting anything new that I will let slip in due time. For now though, just know that there will be some new King of the Unknown sometime in the future, and I thank everyone for waiting patiently and spreading the word on the comic.

All the Best! -Marcus
