Connor Kenway from "Assassin's Creed" with Guns from "The Sixth Gun"
Since we seem to be wallowing in images of weaponry now that the kids are in summer camp and not at Quaker School, here is an assassin posing with supernatural weapons. The summer camp is, however, housed within the Quaker school and features many of the same staff. As usual, I am just refining my children's ability to engage in self aware hypocrisy.
And speaking of questionable parenting, and what is, or is not OK at Quaker school: we are finally completely caught up to the current issue of "The Sixth Gun" a moderately inappropriate for kids supernatural western comic series by Brian Hurtt and Cullen Bunn. We got started on the series when one of the kids discovered the first two volumes at the school's used book sale. Apparently, they had been ousted from the library for unsuitable content.
At any rate, Ansel requested that I draw his favorite assassin, Connor, holding the first two supernatural pistols from "The Sixth Gun.' The first gun shoots "with the force of a cannon blast," and the second "spreads the fires of perdition." While Connor appears to be capable of mowing down an entire army single handedly with just an axe, certainly he would benefit from this weapon upgrade. (Having admitted to reading "The Sixth Gun" to my sons, I feel compelled to pathetically point out that I have not allowed them to play Assassin's Creed. This does not diminish their enthusiasm for the concept or the character.)
Distracted by Connor's annoying to draw outfit, I botched the pistols: the part of the gun that identifies them as the first and second gun is the grip, which is, of course, impossible to see here.
