ABOUT THE COMIC
Debuting in 2010, Frik started out as an unemployed, slightly unstable, medieval warrior who had to get a job at a medieval fast food restaurant. Eventually he left the restaurant to fight ninja gnomes and then came back to deliver food to an eccentric mage, but goblins tracked him down and wanted revenge. Volume four starts with Frik being unemployed and looking for other work, often with hilarious results. Visit the SAMPLES page to see a few episodes!
Parental Note: This comic is designed for 10+ crowd. There is no blood and only one cuss word in the entire thing. The humor is more towards the adult side, so this comic really caters to a wide age range!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Todd Tevlin is a mixed media digital artist, comic artist, photographer, graphic designer, and stay at home dad. He first started dabbling in comics when he was thirteen years old, but they were mainly knockoffs of popular 1980s cartoons of that period. He eventually lost interest and studied other artistic mediums, but came back into comic production in 2009 when the concept of Frik’in Hell came to him.
Without these people, Frik wouldn’t have happened at all…
Theresa: Before Frik ever popped into my head, she introduced me to a web comic called “The Order Of The Stick” by Rich Burlew. It’s one of those “If he can make THAT and be successful then I certainly can do it too!” comics.
Kris: At the end of 2009 she posted this image from an artist named Marc Johns. This simple drawing stuck with me so much that I printed it out and it’s tacked to the wall in front of me. I used that horse to motivate me to make this comic, flaws and all.
Scott: He has helped me name the restaurant that Frik works at as well as helping me out with other names and fleshing out concepts with the comic. When I’m banging my head against the wall for a name, usually he can find something that works.
My wife: Last but not least. She’s not into comics, nor does she play RPGs. She does know my sense of humor, however, and can tell me immediately if something works or not when I show her what I’ve done. When I can make her laugh reading my comic, I know it works for people outside the target demographic. She also has been indispensable in helping me out with the technical stuff like using Adobe Illustrator. She’s been behind me 100% and has helped me bring it to fruition, and for that I’m eternally grateful!
