Intro Jonny Axx 1

By Jon Towers
  I thought I would spend some time on my production blog introducing or reintroducing everyone to some of the core characters featured in my upcoming graphic novel The Djinn Jihad, The New Apocrypha Book Six. If you see him try not to make eye contact, because he is Jonny Axx!

Jonny Axx is a broken man who has been through the spiritual warfare wringer. He has fought demonworshiping cultists, battled white suited Demon Lords, and sucker punchedarchangels. During an all out war between Demon Lord Nysrogh and The Archangel Gabriel, Axx had to kill his girlfriend who was possessed. He never really recovered from those events.

Jonny Axx is often seen in bars named after biblical references, reading books. He devours all arcane knowledge he can find in an attempt to learn about the true world around him. He smokes and drinks too much, and walks with a limp. He has a weird skin disease and is covered in scars.

Axx is sometimesreferred to as an “Abdal” which is rumored to be a dark and secret society. Even though Axx knows about the world and the obscure but powerful forces around him he is not a magic user, he does often use his knowledge of the divine, sinister and magical forces against his enemies, often with learning even more important things.

Stitch as a concept of a serial killer who kills other serial killers has been with me since 1991 when I started drawing unpublished amateur comics staring him. He actually still looks a lot like that early incarnation. He was formed from my early obsession with Thomas Harris books. I’d also like to note that darkly Dreaming Dexter, also a serial killer who kills other serial killers came out in 2004 the same year that The Nonstandard Assembly was originally published.

Stitch is not capable or even functional in most situations. He is totally socially awkward around people and he is extremely dangerous even when he is unarmed and unprovoked. He has no formalized fighting skill but is full of violent rage, really tough and Gretchen will rarely let him have a firearm.

Shin Po Tan is a man of action and mystery. He is very tough, highly skilled in many martial arts, and an expert with a sword. Along with Jonny Axx he is sometimes referenced asan “Abdal” which is rumored to be an arcane secret society. Even if this is true, it isn’t the biggest or only secret he is keeping.

Shin has many traits and characteristics that make him a worthy opponent.
  • He mostly uses katana blades, he has also used a nodachi and he has used a huge claymore like broadsword.
  • He uses a lot of martial arts styles and techniques, he favors mantis style and is often seen using the long hand techniques.
  • He sometimes seems to be stronger and more agile than a regular bloke.
  • He seems to have a natural resistance to magic.

Shin is well traveled and has had run ins with a lot of characters from the world of The New Apocrypha. The premise of the Syntrophos books was that he was teaming up with different characters. Shin is never see without his mask, it is not known if he is hiding a terrible secret, or if it is perhaps some sort of medical device. He also is always shown with his black body suit, literally leaving his eyes the only real bit of him we actually see.
