Some Literary scholars now believe that Victor Hugo's masterpiece The Hunchback of Notre Dame was based loosely on one of Modok's earlier ancestors.
He lived above the Cathedral and didn't bother too many people. In fact he was really sweet on this gypsy girl too, but he wasn't much to look at. So, when an angry mob of French peasants ousted him, from his domicile for his terrifying appearance. He fled to seek out a life of revenge...this led to killin', and mindblasts down the road. Thus continued the long time honored Modok heritage.
That being said, this'll be my last MODOK for o9'.
I wanted to thank everyone involved for making it a most excellent year indeed.
In fact this year:
-We Increased site traffic almost exponentially.
-The word got out on the web, and Modok was noticed by all kinds of neighboring websites.
-There was a steady influx of new members to the blog, along with submitted works from all kinds of talented artists, and fellow Modok fans.
-We Netted almost 130 plus posts for the whole of march and the last day isn't even over yet!
Great WORK everyone!!
So, again I thank you all. With Special thanks to my Co-captain BrendanTOBIN for his crackerjack effort and time spent keeping up with updating submissions while making awesome Modok images. Also, I'd like to thank Kasra Ghanbari for peppering our mailbox with wonderful Modok drawings from his vast personal stash.
I've got plenty of unfinished drawings here on my desk, that I hope you'll come back and check out during next year. Other then that I encourage you to take some time to browse the site, lots of great work, tons of great artists, and one BAD ASS MENTAL ORGANISM.
So, Farewell 09'
Get ready for...
MARCH MODOK MADNESS 2010!
