2017 Peril Calendar - May: Dyna the Damsel Dynamo by DavidCMatthews 2017 Peril Calendar - May: Dyna the Damsel Dynamo by DavidCMatthews
A week late - my apologies - but here it is.

As I may have mentioned somewhere, it's hard to imperil some of my heroines, particularly Tetsuko and Dyna. But I think I've come up with a suitably menacing-looking contraption for the imprisonment and eventual destruction of the Damsel Dynamo.

I'm playing with a design idea: the text, caption and calendar bits in a sidebar color box so as not to hide any of the art.

A note about Blackbox: some of you may remember my first (since abandoned) attempt at a Dyna comic, "Menace in Metal!". The villain of that piece was named The Robot Master, a name I thought could use some improvement. A reader (whose name I've forgotten, alas) suggested "Blackbox" after the fact that many electronics prototypes are housed in generic black boxes until the functions are finalized, after which the casings are then given more attractive designs. My plan for Blackbox is that he will be Dyna's most dangerous enemy, an inventor and scientific genius whose twisted psyche leads him to use his intellect to try to subjugate the world; after Dyna thwarts his schemes time after time, he turns his attention toward eliminating her once and for all. Will he succeed this time?...

(Betcha can't tell which of those screws are hand-drawn and which are just photos of drill bits pasted into the... oh, you can tell? Rats.)

Normally I'd say someone in such a tight spot would be screwed, but in Dyna's case I'm sure she'll be able to turn things around (unless there's a twist ending, of course).

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. =P

And nope, I can't tell which screws you've drawn and which are photos either! So good job on that, and great job on the pic overall! This device looks particularly "old school supervillain" in its dastardliness (aka, the best kind of dastardliness!), which certainly fits a character like Dyna well; and probably very expensive for Blackbox to fix once she inevitably breaks free.

Yes I will. It's a time-suck, but I'm determined to finish at least that one scene.

Noticed that Dyna's hair is a more golden blonde than the strawberry blonde/auburn I've known. Is this a new look for her?

Wondering if I'm the only one thinking of the Stretch Armstrong doll with her in that position and predicament.

I think maybe that's part of the appeal of these kinds of pics.

Of the four screws?  I can't tell them apart - they all look like a match to me.  Well done!!

Do you expect her to talk?

No, I expect her... well, Blackbox expects her to... well, you know the rest.

:icondrevilplz::iconsaysplz:No.  I expect her to die!

That was a deliberate setup, I just know it!  =P

I couldn't find an Auric Goldfinger icon so I went with another.  ;)
