Old School Crossfire

By | March 12, 2022

To celebrate the 100th page of Crossfire, I wanted to share the original inspiration of this comic. Back when I was in high school, I worked on a bunch of various comics, card games, and video games as a hobby in my free time. One of those comics I did in high school was “Outpost Crossfire”, which was a comedic comic that was essentially a cross between Red Vs Blue and Garfield.

Unlike the modern Crossfire who are traveling mercenaries, this Crossfire was a band of marines stationed at some backwater outpost. Four of the original cast made it to the new TG-themed comic, with Arianne serving as the Rookie in the series. While these old comics are in no way canon, they are a fun read to glimpse into the past 15 years ago and see where the foundations of Crossfire came from.

    15 years ago, damn, a long time ever since. Fast forward today, you’re making quality comics for many people to read.

    If I were an artist, I would be inspired by the evolution that your art & craft went through. So yeah, keep up the good work!

    I couldn’t find all of them. Murf’s page on the first comic was missing, and so was the comic that introduced Arianne as the new Rookie.
