Exterminatus Now

Exterminatus Now is a webcomic drawn in Sonic-style, following the adventures of two Inquisitors, a mercenary, and a daemon hunter as they fight the many evil and dangerous creatures that inhabit the world of Mobius. It is written mostly by Garry "Lothar" Webber and drawn by Alan "The Virus" Graham, with contributions by Martin "Silversword" Faulkner and Stuart "Eastwood" Edney.

The comic has many references to the Sonic the Hedgehog series. The setting is the same Mobius referred to in the English-speaking video games. Lothar resembles Knuckles the Echidna, while Eastwood bears a passing resemblance to Miles "Tails" Prower, much to the artist's irritation. Chao like Blasphemy were created in Sonic Adventure - and, in one comic, Lothar tells how he was turned down from appearing in the Sonic games in preference to Shadow. There are also numerous Warhammer 40,000 references; the name of the comic itself is taken from Imperial doctrine.

The comic and its setting is a parody of a fan project which tried to create a new Mobius with a deeper backstory and history; a full mythology, political and social set-up. The project has been underway for years with no sign of completion. (comic - more...)
