Check out James Turner’s new 3 panel joke strip based on characters from his Graphic Novel, Warlord of Io.  Click on the image to link to for the new web series.

After the adventures found in Warlord of Io, Maximilian Zing finds himself both in colour (it’s the future, after all) and in charge of a small moon. Not a space station. A small moon. The fourth largest in orbit around Jupiter, in fact. Io. Hilarity ensues!
