Broke Drawers
The Art of Metal Hand


Blog that follows my artwork from the beginning of Metal Hand and Broke Drawers from art shows and comic book conventions to indie comics and published works.


Inside this horror anthology is the first appearance of Chango. I've always wanted to do a period horror story and at first I was thinking of doing a Western. After thinking about it I decided to go back much further in time with Chango being the first killer to walk the Earth. I didn't want to use any dialogue because I thought it would take the reader out of the story. As I was drawing this story I came up with more ideas of where I could take Chango to next. 

1 Frightful Night Comic (First Appearance of Chango)

1 Frightful Night, is a 28 page horror anthology. With five stories:

"Chango: The Killer Ape-Man" - Revenge has been around since the beginning of time. In this tale, we learn not to mess with someone just because they are different. A lesson three neanderthals are soon to be taught. (Art and Story by Metal Hand, creator of "Agenda" and "Laser")

"Survivor"- A ship is stranded in space. A man must make a choice to survive at all cost, even if it means doing the unimaginable. (Art and Story by Jack Gonzalez, creator of "Last Unicorn," and "Pins and Needles.")

"Fuckboy"- A sexist man thinks he’s about to score with the perfect girl at the bar, but gets more than he bargained for. (Art and Story by Brian Defferding, creator of "School: A Ghost Story.")

"Nightmares"- A girl struggles to cope with a nightmare that never seems to end, but is she really dreaming. (Story by Maria Gonzalez and Art by Jack Gonzalez.) 

"The Paleta Man"- It's date night and a young couple go out to the drive-in. After watching the first horror movie trailer, their tasty treats from the concession stand aren't what they seem. (Story by Mike Morales and Art by Noel Morales, co-creator and artist of Midlife Monsters).
