The Standard Comics Universe is made up of a variety of heroes and villains, including updated public domain characters (like TNT Todd or the Grim Reaper) and original characters (like UltraMan, Optima, Star-Storm, Chthonak, Emulex, and Dreadhelm).

Roy began commissioning comic art in 2010 and quickly settled into pieces featuring old public domain superheroes with the idea that “Standard Comics” (a real company until the 1950’s) bought all these characters and published them together in a shared universe. Eventually, his own creations crept into the mix. 

Roy created an abridged Encyclopedia of his characters and is now preparing to publish a comic book.

We discuss the Public Domain as well as original characters in the new Standard Universe and his future plansfor the line.
