THE VEIN - Art

The critics agree, THE VEIN is for thee!

Hello everyone. I hope you are happy! Welcome to the world(s) of THE VEIN.

Here is the hyperlink to our website. We paid good money for it. Enjoy: www.theveincomic.com.

Our Kickstarter is now officially live! Now you can help good win by donating to a cause greater all of us, get free swag, and receive a copy of THE VEIN with alternative art nobody else has ever seen. Oh, what a wonderful world! Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/davidlecomptecomics/the-vein

T getting frisky with the enemy.

What is THE VEIN about? It's a science fiction, body horror comic book about a young man named "T" who merges with an extraterrestrial, outer dimensional entity (known as "The Tentacles") due to an unfortunate scientific accident outside his control thanks to advanced technologies beyond his understanding. 

T gains powers, including the ability to travel to other planets and dimensions, and learns about worlds far more technologically advanced than Earth while fighting demonic entities, dealing with alien intelligences, or just learning to live with The Tentacles while trying to return home. They spit acid! They can kill at will! Plus, more importantly, The Tentacles really enjoy old skool American theater showtunes. Who can blame them?

T uses his powers. 

THE VEIN is more than just the story of T, a young man with body dysmorphia possessed by an alien entity granting him powers that go beyond mere mortals, it's also about his friends!

APRIL AYERS is T's best female friend, helping him out when others won't. She studies quantum physics with an occult twist.

FABIO is T's best male frenemy, a real knee biter who'd bully our hero in a polite social setting forever, if it wasn't for April.

A comic for you, freaks and me too!

UNCLE BOB is T's mean uncle, teasing him unmercifully with his gargantuan vocabulary (even spelling bee champions can be jerks) and antagonizing attitude. Can't a kid going to community college get a little respect?

BLUE BALL is a severed head in a jar that speaks. Good times!

Buy the comic book and take a better look. 

LOXXANA is a scientist on another planet a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (spacetime is funky like that) pulling the strings, and the biological dendritic connections, to make people do what she wants. What is this mentally superior, technologically terrifying, matriarchal mastermind really up to?

THE GREAT MUTATO is a hovercycle enthusiast with a penchant for egomania, kidnapping, violence, weapons, vehicular manslaughter, any kind of manslaughter, antisocial tendencies, and telling you on Friday that your paycheck isn't going to be ready until next Monday...yes, he's THAT evil.

T and his fun, happy, brutal friends. 

THE TENTACLES...Peter Parker had his spider. Venom had his symbiote. VAMPIRE HUNTER D had his talking hand. I had acne in high school (it totally sucked phalluses). D'Artagnan had THE THREE MUSKETEERS. THE THING had The Thing. THE BLOB had The Blob. What if amazing mutant superpowers came with a price, three heads, and a penchant for singing showtunes? You'll find out!

Now that you've learned about the comic book, meet the rest of the team behind THE VEIN!

The Main Man, the Head Honcho, and creator of THE VEIN!

DAVID LE COMPTE started getting into comics at a young age, THE X-MEN and BATMAN cartoons from the 90's were his doorway into comics. His family couldn’t really afford buying them though, so for a long time he only had three: A Chris Clairemont / Jim Lee issue of THE X-MEN, A Barry Windsor Smith WEAPON X, and an issue of 2001 by Jack Kirby. 

Eventually he got old enough to work and he spent most of his money on comics, and most of his free time trying to figure out how to draw comics. After high-school, he attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. 

He eventually found his way to San Diego, California, where he began a career as a graphic designer which turned into a career in front-end software development. He has published 4 comics independently: MISPLACED EYED, ELECTRO BEETLE, PLAN R, and ROWS OF LIGHTS. 

Hans Fink. Creative Editor. Humorist and Artist.

HANS FINK was either born or hatched some time ago when he was young. His parents are giant big-brained nerds with large personal libraries. Hans learned art from his maternal grandmother, and hilarity from his paternal grandfather. He spent some of his formative years growing up in a family owned graphics shop, where he discovered his love of comics books. 

The mind of Hans Fink is better than geniuses think.

As a young child, he could not stop reading comics and drawing his own. Somehow Hans went from this to becoming Editor-in-Chief of SKINNIE ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE. During his career in entertainment journalism, Hans also contributed articles and images to various publications such as CULTURE MAGAZINE, MUSIC CONNECTION, PASADENA WEEKLY, IE WEEKLY, and others. 
 
Hans eventually met a wild artist and horror-enthusiast named David Le Compte, who promptly hired him to color THE VEIN and provide additional art & design as needed. To this day, Hans is a big fat fucking nerd who makes comics, does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (not the Japanese version), pets cats, and smokes all the weed.

When genius meets advertising results ensue.

That's it on THE VEIN for now. If you are interested in contributing art, ideas, and even writing for our comic book, contact us! This comic isn't just for the entire world to enjoy...it's also for you!

Finally...please give to our Kickstarter. You'll get incredible swag, enjoy a storyline not endorsed by a sold-out, corporatist Hollywood industry, and support independent writers/artists who think like you do. One day, if we are all successful, you'll see THE VEIN on streaming services like INVINCIBLE or TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES too!
