Nuklear Age

Book DescriptionIt's a tale of incompetence in the face of adversity. Or is it a story of adversity in the face of incompetence? Well, anyway, there's a robot, a giant monster, a line of evil toys, a mind control plot, sub-orbital death beams, kidnappers, bad movies, a super powered gang, an usurper, and a maniacal villain hell-bent on world domination. Not all at once, though. I mean, really, could you imagine coordinating the fight scene? Or reading it? You'd have to take notes just to keep track of who hit what and why.

Career

Webcomics

Clevinger's webcomic, 8-Bit Theater, which is hosted on his site Nuklear Power,[1] is very loosely based on the video game Final Fantasy I and tells the story of four would-be fantasy heroes, known as the Light Warriors, who set out to save the world from the embodiment of Chaos, but are conflicted over their own stupidity and malice. The comic was created using 8-bit graphic sprites taken primarily from the Final Fantasy NES games, or created by either Clevinger himself or Kevin Sigmund. Spanning 1225 episodes, it ran from March 2, 2001 to June 1, 2010.[2]

Clevinger also created two mini-comics: Dynasty Memory was created in 2002 as a parody of the Dynasty Warriors series, and Field of Battle was created in August 2005 as a parody of FPS games in general and Battlefield 2 in particular.

In 2009, Clevinger started two other webcomics on Nuklear Power. Warbot in Accounting, co-written with artist Zack Finfrock, is about a war machine's struggles with human daily life in a white collar job.[3] How I Killed Your Master, "a kung fu movie, but a comic", is co-written with John Wood and drawn by Matt Speroni.[4]

Print

Atomic Robo, drawn by Scott Wegener, began as a six-issue limited series published by Red 5 Comics starting in October 2007.[5] It was nominated in the "Best Limited Series" category of the 2008 Eisner Awards,[6] won by The Umbrella Academy.[7] Colorist Ronda Pattison was also nominated in the "Best Coloring" category subsequently won by Dave Stewart.[6][7]

It was announced at the 2010 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo that Clevinger would be revamping the saga of the The Infinity Gauntlet for Marvel Comics' all-ages series Marvel Adventures.[8][9] Clevinger also revealed that he had contributed writing for both two issues of World War Hulks: Wolverine vs. Captain America, which will be released that summer.[9][10]

The self-published novel Nuklear Age is largely an extended parody of comic books. The book recounts the adventures of Nuklear Man and his sidekick, Atomik Lad, as they fight against rogue military weapons, highly evolved civilizations, the trials of everyday life, an angst-filled over-villain of undeniable power, the ever exotic Dr. Menace, and their own impulses.

Style

Clevinger has stated that "[his] favorite comics are the ones where the jokes are on the reader."[11]

Personal life

Michael J. Novosel, Clevinger's grandfather, was a United States Army helicopter pilot and recipient of the Medal of Honor.[12]
