Fang Force; a comission by Choscaa

Hello again to all you lovely lads, lasses and beautiful non-binary babes.

I write today with an exciting annoucement; a brand new serial drawing inspiration from Super Sentai/Power Rangers, etc.

Presentinging for your consideration:
FANG FORCE!

When evil emerges after centuries long hibernation, tour guide Lindsay is called upon to lead the soldiers of the Great Vampire King. With the powers of the bat, wolf, beetle, spider and mountain lion the five heroes battle injustice as Fang Force!

The story will be released in ‘episode’ format, with three parts – one released weekly – making up an episode. So far I’ve completed four episodes, and aiming to finish up to seven in the next month before release.

Are you as excited as I am? I sure hope so!
