From left to right: Rebus, Triton pre-Pyramid Scheme, Triton post-Pyramid
Scheme, Conflicto (with hair dyed orange to better
clash with his costume), Peryton, Sultry, Labyrinthe (with a cloak he can
disappear into using spacewarps), Burnout (both Lana Smith and C.J. Brown
versions) and Doublecross, who isn't actually a member, more of a supporting
cast, plus Doublecross's assistant, Irrlicht (aka Light Errant), in my first
animated ASH icon! (Desktop wallpaper has been moved to the Fan Art
CSV The Animated Series
Built in the BuddyPoke app, a chibi interpretation of the adventures of the
- Chapter 1:
Villains over Tokyo! - Set in the aftermath of DEEP ARMAGEDDON, this is
probably not exactly what happened to the Conclavers, but you never know....
- Origins: #1/2 - 3
- DEEP ARMAGEDDON: #4-5
- Tempestuous: #6-7
- Lights! Camera! Action!: #8-11
- Tidal Waves: #13
- Pyramid Scheme Crossover: #14-17
- Names: #18-19
|The "Origins" arc was not formally so named.|
Dead Killing Eye - #20-21
In the wake of the Pyramid Scheme, the CSV is trying to
rebuild, but there's still some old grudges that need resolving first. Tony
Pi returns to writing the title with this arc.
- Part I: First Glance: The CSV rebuilds and Mr. Strings
seeks out Cockatrice to finish things once and for all...but there's more
factions involved than anyone guesses.
- Part II: Second Sight: The
final conflagration between Mr. Strings and Cockatrice, with an entire city
in the balance!
Villain's Apprentice - #22-25, Annual #1
Triton has some ideas on how to make the Conclave of
Super-Villains a stronger group, but instead the team may be completely
shattered from within!
Annual #1 - "Heirs": An interlude, covering
the events of Villain's Apprentice from other angles.
- Part I: Better or Worse:
Reporter Robert Coulter (see Tony's guest stint on Warden) returns, with the
opportunity of a lifetime...assuming he lives long enough to see it through!
- Part II: Old, New, Borrowed,
Blue: Coulter's first month as Challenger as seen through his own
- Part III: Best Man
Standing: It's time for Triton's bachelor party! And what would a
wedding-related activity be without party-crashers intent on mayhem?
Annual #3 - Zoo of Malice: During an otherwise
quiet time, the CSV heads to the Montreal area to look into buying some
living weapons, but they find a little more than they bargained for! (This
was written after CSV #29, but is placed here because it is an "untold tale"
set between #25 and #26.)
- Part IV: Altar Egos": It's
the fairy tale wedding of Triton and Sultry...but many fairy tales are grim
Four To Never
A crossover with ASH, featuring the return of Tony Pi to
writing CSV after a three and a half year hiatus! A mysterious woman seems
willing to break reality to advance her agenda....
- Prelude: Time Trials: As the Prix Ultime is ready to
start in Monaco, the CSV is under observation, and Triton is one of four
"keys"...but to what? To be continued in ASH #77!
- Lap 2: Time Bombs: Disaster has struck, and while the
superteams of three nations work to evacuate the innocent, it's a race
against time to find a solution before the entire world is destroyed! To be
continued in ASH #78!
- Lap 4: Time Flies: Four to Never wraps up as the
insidious plans of the Impossible Five are revealed, and we find out the fate
of Triton, Solar Max, Aegis and Kleinvogel!
Continued from the arc in ASH
Annual #2 - "Revelation": It took four
issues to show how JakZak and Jen got back to 2026, but Triton can manage it
in only one! Admittedly, this one issue is about three times as large as a
regular ASH story, but that's what it takes to contain the awesomeness that
is Derek Radner!
- 'Star Gazing: A
one-shot for High Concept Challenge #20, "Behind Blue Eyes". In the wake of
the events in ASH #113,
TerraStar gives an interview to the Terran News Network. Of course, what she
says is but a shadow of what she means.... Written by Dave Van Domelen.
Winner of High Concept Challenge #20!
