The Brilliant Bella is a web comic about Bella, a super heroine, co-created by Thomas Morrison (writer) and Tiina Birgitta Räisänen (artist).
Bella has left her home in the Paradisaical land of Avalon to come to the 1939 American city of Middleton and taken the alias of police woman Donna De Angelo to not only fight criminals, mobsters, monsters and super villains, but also finds herself inadvertently fighting the social injustices that are prevalent against women in pre World War II America.
Officer Richard "Dick" Dooley is searching through the Middleton Museum for the crooks that broke in through the side entrance but instead of finding the crooks, he finds the night guard, cowering in fear.
Will the team up and work together to get the crooks?
Will the end up shooting each other out of confusion?
Stay tuned and see.
I just got some comics back from the printer, Comixpress! I'm thrilled to have gotten something printed but I'm sure I won't get rich on it. Now if only I can get Comixpress to put it in their catalog so that others can buy it as well!
Tiina has done a voluptuous Vampirella pin-up for our pleasure!
I think Tiina really nailed it! It's the perfect combination of sexy and spooky! One thing Tiina is really good at is all the background detail. I love all the ghosts and ghouls behind her!
I don't know about you but I love to see the artists process as they go through the different stages from pencils to finished color work. Well guess what? Tiina has graced us with scans of the work through the different stages!
Our bumbling crooks have found the loot and they are packing it away. Meanwhile our friend, police officer Dooley, is searching the museum for signs of the crooks. But it looks like the hunter may have become the prey.
I would like to thank our audience for coming back to read our comic. Tiina, the artist, has been dealing with health issues that have slowed her out put down quite a bit. fortunately she is still in the game and producing pages, just more slowly. Personally I'm always excited to see what she produces, slow or not.
Some exciting recent news is that we will be having a comic printed at Comixpress, a print on demand company, featuring our story Bella meets Rex, with some added material. When it finally happens we will definitely let you people know.
