Pick of the Week: Super Zeroes

Super Zeroes by Will Terrell follows the lives of teenagers separated by thousands of miles that have a path before them that will bring them crashing into each others lives.   We find one of the main cast members Elysium Fields “Elly” struggling with the realization that her life is about to change and she’s about to find her self moving to Texas and away from the life she’s known.

On a side note, we don’t ride cows to school here in Texas we save them for when we go to the store. 🙂

As Elly struggles with the changes that are coming in her life the story takes us to Texas where we meet friends Johnny, Bob and Johnny’s dog Potato.   Johnny and Bob have problems of their own, or shall I say Johnny has some issues that he keeps dragging Bob into.  How to talk to girls.

Super Zeroes takes us back and forth between these two lives and we start to see that Elly has some things going on that make her a bit different from a regular kid, but she doesn’t quite understand exactly what that is.   A chance encounter with a new friend takes her a step closer to discovering a secret her mother was hoping she would never figure out.

Meanwhile back in Texas the boys continue to struggle with the hard parts of being a teenager and through a series of unfortunate events discover something mystical as well.

One of the things that I find exciting and fresh about this webcomic is the approach that Will takes to the teenage years and to friendship.   This is not your typical supernatural webcomic series, but it also explorers friendship and the ups and downs of growing up and experiencing change.   Through Elly we see how a move can emotionally affect someone and how change is not an easy thing to embrace.  Through Johnny and Bob we get to explorer a true friendship, seeing them be there for each other even though they may be night and day when it comes to certain situations.

The flow of the comic series is great in that it’s not heavy on just one side or the other, but easily goes back and forth between one group and the other, showing what’s happening in their lives as they get closer and closer to that moment where they will intersect and become a part of each others lives.

Will Terrell brings over a decade of comic creation to the table.  He has created comics and illustrations for many clients including Disney, Microsoft, Slave Labor Graphics, and Ape Entertainment to name a few.   He performs community outreach, and is founder of the Lubbock SketchClub artist organization, as well as co-founder of the Lubbock Comic Book Expo and West Texas Comic Con.   He and his wife make comic books with their friends at Robot Cowboy Studios.

Super Zeroes has been a passion of Will’s and one that he has been working on in various forms since 2005.  The webcomic began in 2009 and in 2011 a comic book series of Super Zeroes began.  Many of the pieces of the story draw from Will’s own life lessons and through this he hopes to be able to reach people in a positive and uplifting way and make them laugh.

Being a new reader to Super Zeroes I can tell you if you have not ever checked out this webcomic it’s very easy to jump on board, and is a super fun series with fun characters and story line that are still developing so now is as good a time as any to jump on over and see what Super Zeroes is all about.

  1. I’ll admit that I don’t read this series as often as I should. For some reason, it falls off my radar with everything I keep on my plate on a daily basis, but whenever I return to the archives, I am guaranteed hours of pure entertainment.

    • My pleasure Will. I am definitely a new reader to your work and am now a hooked reader. I love finding webcomics that really pull the reader in and take them on a fun and exciting ride and yours is one that definitely does that. I hope that this article will help to lead new readers to your work and like George, rekindle the past readers to go back and revisit your site. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for Super Zeroes.

  2. Well done Will, love your style!
    Another comic to add to the list. (My RSS feed is getting huge thanks to these weekly picks…)

  3. What a great choice for POTW! Will is a consummate creator, he spares no expense in producing some of the finest story and art both on and off the web. I follow him on Twitter (@willterrell) and he’s always posting sketches and illustrations that are so much fun to see. You can tell Superzeroes is a real labor of love, Will’s joy of creation is there in every part. He balances great characters with fun, excitement and mystery and of course, no one can touch his color. Will makes it all look so effortless, but I know its an enormous amount of work to make it look that way. Congrats, Will!
