Here is today’s entries in the A-Z of Awesomeness, a month-long project in which I draw a picture of whatever random nonsense people on the internet tell me to for each letter of the alphabet.
Prepare to be Awesomed:
FIRST VOLUME: (A-F)
SECOND VOLUME: (G-J)
THIRD VOLUME: (K-N)
FOURTH VOLUME: (O-R)

S is for... Sulu and Spiral Swashbuckling in Space (with Several Serrated Swords)
Neill says: Today’s pic was suggested by K. D. Bryan, so thanks to him / her! Spiral is a slightly obscure x-men villain. Sulu is the Dopest Motherf*&#er in Starfleet. That’s about all you need to know.
T is for... Tintin and a Timelord Taking Tea in Tibet
Neill says: I swear, if ever I ‘make it big’ in comics, I intend to immediately retire and just draw mountains all day long.
Anyway, thanks to Brian Pierce for suggesting today’s entry!
U is for... Uhura and Ultraman on a Unicorn Underwater
Neill says: Here is today’s extra-SENSUAL entry in the Eh? to Z of Awesomeness!
Russell Smith and Michael Goldrei both wanted an Underwater Unicorn-riding Uhura, which shows that great minds clearly think alike. I threw in Ultraman for my own amusement, to make it kind of like the cover of a romance novel from another, altogether odder, planet.
Anyway, sorry there was no pic yesterday, I was rather under the weather. Also it was a Saturday, and the 4th of July, so I figured absolutely no-one would notice or care. If you throw your minds all the way back to ‘A’, you will recall that I started this whole shebang one day early, so had a day in hand. Which I have now used up. My conscience is satisfied.
V is for... Venom and Voltron Voguing on Vulcan
Neill says: The sharp-eyed amongst you will notice that I drew Vehicle Voltron, rather than the more famous / cool Lion Voltron, simply because he is more alliterative. Those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, I would refer you to the last episode of me and James’ Unified Review TheoryPodcast, in which we discuss the matter in rather more detail than is necessary or interesting.
Anyway, this was suggested by ‘marinarusalka’, so many thanks to them! Possibly the oddest thing about it is that this is NOT the first time I have drawn a giant robot vogue-ing, as readers of Mo-bot High may possibly recall.
Thanks to all who’ve enquired about purchasing either the original art or prints of these pictures. I’m afraid that a) I produce them digitally and b) they are of copyrighted characters, so either option is unfortunately impossible. Yes, I have cunningly undertaken this whole project in such a way as to make it absolutely impossible for me to make any money out of it. I am quite the commercial genius, thank you.
You can suggest ideas for remaining entries in the A-Z yourself, although you’d better move fast as there’s not many left and damned if I’m doing this nonsense again. Holla ideas at me over on the A-Z Facebook Group (which just hit 500 members, hooray!), on Twitter, on the blog, or in the comments section here. X, Y and Z are still up for grabs, people. Dazzle me.
