Hi my name is Jonathan and I'm the creator/writer/drawer dude of Dungeon Hordes! My art training comes from boredom at school and doodling on the side of work assignments and my folders. After that I started making mini comics for my Friends And now I draw Dungeon Hordes!

My Influences are- Charles Shulz, Bill Watterson, Greg Capullo, Steve Nazar, and the awesome chibi art in the classic Nintendo instruction booklets.

Hope you like it:)

Hey guys! I just wanted to thank you for all of your kind words and support for my comics!  This year has been pretty rough for my health and I'm happy that webcomics and it's community has helped me get through it. It has actually eclipsed my love of video games which I guess is a good thing because I would spend a hefty amount of cash on the latest steam or xbox 360 game. But despite the hardships I always enjoy hearing from you guys and reading your comments.

One of the challenges which got the better of me this year was my health (which was why I had to stop drawing Bucky for awhile). I work as a valet parker for a casino every Thurs, Fridays and Saturdays and for the remaining four days off I would do nothing but draw comics and game. It was then that I decided that for my health, one of these hobbies had to go, so I gave up on gaming, got a healthy drawing/exercise routine  and became more focused on my comics. I found myself able to write and draw with a clear head not worrying about catching up. Sometimes I would game and then end up drawing for 14 hours straight trying to catch up with my deadlines. Whew talk about sequential overload!

But anyways I wanted to try out Patreon, which is a crowd funding site where you support your favorite artist, but I didn't want to charge people for reading Dungeon Hordes or Bucky, so I decided to get back to my roots and do classic mini game stories like, Metroid, or Zelda. Kinda like the Japanese Doujinshi comics. I won't be following the Nintendo lore but follow the classic interpretations of the story. I might throw in a random story or  modern game ever once in awhile, but it will most likely stay in the retro aspect. I will also add concept art for two short 90 page comics that I'm currently working on.We'll see what happens!

Thanks again for taking the time to read my silly doodles and for all of your feed back!

Jonathan Murdock.

Out of interest, have you ever tried sending your strip to any gamer magazines. I'm sure they'd be interested in publishing it.

It has crossed my mind . . . But I never had the time. Maybe someday I'll try it!:)

Why not make some money from your hard work. I can't find any suitable publications for my strips at the moment, but I'm still looking.

Huh, I don't think I saw a bio comic for Doc Baker, or am I just missing it? I vaguely remember seeing one but I can't find it.

I'm going to slow down on the bios for now. . . but rest assured she won't be left out. I'll release a bio once a week from here on out.
