The end of Chapter 2 of LOTC- and the end of Phase one of my work on this project- Umex finally goes Head to Head with Aegeus as we end it on a cliffhanger… Time to take a break from this comic for a while and work on some pinups and posters, but don’t worry Lords of the Cosmos will be coming at you in the next few comics (Ugli Studios Presents #3 and #4 and then Lords of the Cosmos Volume #1) I create in 2015 as the finished versions of these 30 pages become actual stories you can enjoy!
Here is the final art for this page and my thumbnails and layouts
Introducing the New Comic Cover for Ugli Studios Presents #3 Featuring the DISCIPLES OF UMEX from LORDS OF THE COSMOS!
Thanks to Dani Kaulakis
for the outstanding color work and layout job on the cover!

to support the project!
Page 29 of Lords of the Cosmos… almost wrapped on phase one, one more page to go. Aegeus hears and sees the world wide emergency message from King Yuril, and assembles his flight crew to move out the Lords of the Cosmos team into action on board one of their huge VTOL transports….
The last of the Disciples of Umex attacking the people of Planet Aiden. Ending with a closeup of Umex doing a personal execution with his tentacle arm. Really hard page to pull off, but I was very proud of how this jam packed series of images turned out.
I made this vertical DISCIPLES OF UMEX poster on Manga Studio 5. Basically a fun promotional piece for the LORDS OF THE COSMOS villains to get into the act of marketing, when they aren’t killing people!
More assorted carnage from the DISCIPLES OF UMEX in the pages of LORDS OF THE COSMOS… attacking civilians across the various lands of Planet Aiden… Really fun to get the full body of MORDANTIX into panel #2.
The DISCIPLES OF UMEX take the battle to the lands of Aiden in the kingdom of GEMSPIRE! Fun to get these characters into action blowing things up!
Working a bit out of order- this page transitions us from 9 pages of introducing the DISCIPLES OF UMEX to them attacking Planet Aiden with a nuke strike… the actual hand of UMEX himself points to a map in his base, AXIOM FORTRESS
Moving back from the carnage on page 17, we now go to the one group ready to turn the tide- THE LORDS OF THE COSMOS at their base- DRAGONSPINE MOUNTAIN. A combination of Egyptian and Masonic temples with a touch of Aircraft carrier thrown in for good measure. A place fit for heroes!
More touring around the landscapes of Aiden after the Disciples of Umex have begun a planet wide reign of terror on the civilian population
