SMALL TOWN HEROES are artists and authors:
Will Fyfe :iconfyfemasterflexii:, the man with the magic hands and
Geoff Lake :iconstaticguru:, the Prince of Perverts.

They're just two guys from a small town who love anime/manga, cute girls,
intense battles, and a good slice of pizza.

Currently, they have almost two titles in the works: GLOW and the forever-in-the-making PRINCESS BOX.


GENRE: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

SYNOPSIS: In the once lush country of Everin, there is a legend of eight magical weapons known as "GAUNTLETS" that, once collected, promises something miraculous will happen. These Gauntlets can be harnessed as powerful weapons and because of this they are highly sought after by government factions, the numerous Gangs that roam the country, and anyone seeking true, raw power.

Elle Blaizdale, a happy-go-lucky young girl, and her closest friends, Noel and Chris, also search endlessly for the legendary Gauntlets, following their dreams to one day restore glowing smiles to the world by their own means -- doing whatever it takes to keep a promise they made long ago.

[this project is released on the 1st of every month.]
[currently, 2 chapters has been released.]



GENRE: Comedy, Ecchi, Harem, Romance, Slice of Life, Supernatural.

SYNOPSIS: When average guy Jessie takes over his grandfather's antique shop in the small and boring town of Atlantic Heights, he finds a mysterious chest in the attic that, when opened, summons princesses from another dimension! Having to deal with other-worldly women and running a small business, all while trying to figure a way to send the royalty back from whence they came makes Jessie's once boring life into anything but average.

[this project is released every Thursday night.]
[currently, no pages have been released.]

Hey GLOW Fans, :iconstaticguru: (Geoff, writer and editor of GLOW) here.

I'm chiming in today for a few reasons, but the big one being that the SMALL TOWN HEROES page has finally hit 15,000 views!

While that's nothing super special, we here at SMT are pretty pumped and want to show our thanks with an impromptu Fan Appreciation post. Of course, Will and I will be sketching up something as thanks for sticking with us (expect some fan service from yours truly, hehe) so keep a look out for that but we also want to truly thank all the fans who took the time to draw something for GLOW by showcasing a handful of them here for all to see. And by association, hopefully you will also check their pages and give 'em the attention they all deserve!

Before all that, however, I'll get some of the news-like updates outta the way for those who like to stay current with us.

For starters, we here at SMT will be joining a webcomic/online manga community called Inkblazerz ( where plenty of authors submit their works and if you are asked to be Premium, you are ranked like an actual comic ring, a la Shuiesha/Shounen Jump, and higher ranked authors are supported even further straight from the funds the site itself makes from traffic and memberships, etc. The premium authors are also given money or merchandise of YOUR comic from a pool the site dedicates strictly to its highest ranking authors. I mean, who doesn't dream of being paid for doing what they love? I'm sure it's not enough to live off or anything, but even if it just pays for future merchandise and physical books, that's more than enough.

Long story short, we are humbly asking you handful of dedicated followers, and any other kind readers, to perhaps make an account on the site when GLOW begins releasing there and read it there/like it there/follow it there as well so the traffic we begin to intake may get us noticed on Inkblazerz. We will not be stopping releases here on devArt, and in fact will be simultaneously releasing on both for a while, but that MAY change in the future if it comes down to the site's rules or impact on our traffic. Heck, if you guys support us equally on both sites, simultaneous releases may not be a problem; I don't know for sure, I haven't fully read rules for Premium Ranked Authors there.

Either way, we'll post links and other information when the time comes but we just wanted to give our fans the heads up. Now, how about we go back to appreciating you guys for all the awesome stuff you've done for GLOW.

First up, as a bonus appreciation, I am happy to share the WINNER of the 1st GLOW Character Cameo Contest that was held last month over at our Fan Club: (There are many of GLOW OCs entered for those who'd like to see!)

Again, thank you for all of your support and I hope you continue to read GLOW as it is released. Chapter 3 will be out on time, July 1st, and additional tidbits will be appearing here and there. GLOW's adventure is just beginning and you won't be disappointed with what we have in store... you can bet on it :iconicameplz:

Thanks for your support! Feel free to contact us with any comments, questions, or feedback!

I have a few friends that are into ponies, I think the show can be funny at times. But it's not my cup of tea I guess haha

Elle is absolutely a good excuse to draw anime style again xD
