Friend of the site and OMNI collaborator Steven Walters just like, you know, totally without care dropped this gorgeous illustration on his Tumblr and Instagram recently. Man. Steven! I am the jealous. No big deal. Just a ridiculously stunning spur-of-the-moment type thing.
(Seriously though, you rule.)

Hello friends of the OMEGA LEVEL. We’ve been anticipating it for a while, and this weekend we’re finally going to get to rock out in a booth at our hometown comic convention. Boom! August 3-4. We’ve got a few pretty dope things in the work, partnering up with several wonderful lads.
Friends, the newest installment of OMNI is here. Led by rocket-riding cowboy-maniac Sergio Mahmoud Jonas, the pioneers come to realize that the fourth rock from the Sun is filled with miracles and horrors inconceivable by the leadfeet stuck on Earth.
In the early years, death cults and the monsters they worship descend from the mountains to wreak havoc. Later, corrupt statesmen misappropriating the Martian dream have to be assassinated. But these are small prices to pay for the benefit of an otherworldly home that produces genuine wonder and challenges us to reconsider the very parameters of possibility.
Hit the jump to check out Rocket Man, a five-page short illustrated by Steven Walters that shows us why Jonas decides to take humanity to the Red Planet!
Do you hear this, Allen Drinkwater? Comixology is launching a self-publishing platform for indie creators. You just need to maintain a level of professionalism in the content submitted, which is pretty much okay for Omega Level’s sponsored creator. ‘Cause the dude is beasting.
Caff: Okay, so Patrick didn’t write an introduction either. P-Rock is a wildly awesome writer and great friend, who spent this year dominating both the blogosphere and print world. He was kind enough to come back to the OL hood for the besties. Check out his Top 10 Films of 2012 over at Mishka while you’re indulging in his righteousness.
Hell yes. SpaceX wizard Elon Musk says that human beings could be on Mars in as early as 12 years. This may very well be bluster and nonsense, but who gives a shit. Let me have this, you naysaying bastards.
Goddamn amazing. Living on Earth got you down? When we’re not destroying the environment (whether or not you believe in Climate Change, we’re pretty impressive dicks to the Blue Marble), we spend the time fighting one another. Get the fuck to Mars if only virtually through this app that lets you explore the Red Planet through a panorama of Curiosity pictures.
OL is proud to present OMNI: A God-Awful, Small Affair!
OL has been given first crack at previewing A God-Awful, Small Affair, the first installment of OMNI from first-time writer Allen Drinkwater (who is, apparently, a friend of this site). After checking out the preview materials and being completely won over by the artwork of Manny Hernaez, I’ve decided to oblige.
Set on the Mars of 2090 CE, this comic follows Detective Farmer Murdock as he attempts to complete his final mission. The catch? The task at hand is to assassinate two of the planet’s most well-respected statesmen. The ensuing tale is filled with violence, rock’n’roll, nefarious secrets, and even a hint of the miraculous.
