“A world of savagery… super-science… and sorcery…”
If anyone was a kid in the early 80’s they may recognize those words. It was the opening to the old Thundarr the Barbarian cartoon. I’ve often said that Bigfoot… was a hybrid of Conan and John Carter of Mars, but I can’t forget the other not so classic works of Thundarr, Yor, the Hunter from the Future and even a little old school Beastmaster. It was looking to all of these influences that I went into this project with the goal of making a world to rival anything you would have found on TBS back in the day.
During the first arc, the “super-science” takes a backseat, but scattered throughout the world there are definitely elements present. Most notably, these guys…
Introducing Lord Jeoffa’s foot soldiers (or “flying disc soldiers” as I presented them to Andy at the design phase.) You really can’t have a savage world of hopeless odds if the villains don’t outnumber, outgun and simply outclass the heroes at every turn. And when you have a legion of technologically advanced flying storm troopers (the Nazi type,) what can you do but cower in fear from the wrath above?
Well, most people would cower in fear anyway...
Until next time!
Have a good one,
