Battlepug: The Web Comic was born out of desperate scramble to appease iFanboy. They contacted Mike to create a signature t-shirt for a new line of merch. However, Mike had been working exclusively with DC Comics for 4 years and had no original properties that he could reveal to the world yet. He drew the image you see above and had Allen color it. And lo, a BATTLEPUG was born!

Special thanks go to:
Chris Crank – Letterer/Editing pal, Brion Salazar – Website developer (Sorry if Mike messed it up, Sal!), Josh Emmons - Technical Go-To-Guy, & iFanboy for forcing Mike to come up with something so silly on the spot.
