The 1st Shadow's rise to popularity on BZPower came in the form of a comic series. Unlike the conventional digital sprite comics, T1S adopted an older, little-used method known as Photo Comics, in which the Comic Maker takes pictures of MOCs and sets in a series of panels that are used to tell the story.

History

T1S began his comic enterprise on July 29th, 2013. It started with a simple intro comic featuring three characters (himself, Turaga Lumos, and Cyrahk). Things only went up from there, and his series became a huge hit.

He completed the first season the year after it began, and a few months later, he jumped into the second season. Season 2 was on a rough hiatus for the majority of 2015, but Shadow has since pushed himself back into Comic Making, and is back in business- somewhat.

For by 2016, his comics had slowed to a grinding halt. However, he has full intent to revive them, and possibly redo them.

Synopsis

The story focuses on a bunch of MOCs that go on numerous adventures and get involved in endless shenanigans--all in a Toy Story-like fashion, as they know they are just MOCs that have somehow gained life. Exactly what causes this remains a mystery, but they don't waste time thinking about it.

The main cast is led by The 1st Shadow and Turaga Lumos, a Turaga of Light and T1S' co-host. They are often harassed by a group of villains, formerly led by Makuta Teridax, and now by the warrior Lord Ghutan.

Each season features different groups of Guest Stars--other members of BZPower whom Shadow invites to join in the fun. One recurring Guest is Shadow's own cousin, Meyres the Anchorman.

Season 1

These stories were mostly randomized, and had little connection to one another. Only the villains seemed to have any idea of a plot, which was done in reference to Teridax, the leader of the villains at the time. Most of the season was spent getting to know the characters and introducing Guest Stars. The season Finale brought all the characters and Guest Stars together for one big battle, which resulted in the supposed death of the two characters named 'Teridax.' This prompted everyone to take a break for the summer and relax before the coming season.

Season 2

Characters

There are three categories of characters within the series: Main cast, Villains, and Extended cast.

The Movie

Shortly after the successful first season, T1S had the thought to one day try a full-length stop-motion film to go alongside his comics. As of late 2014, the announcement was made public, and work on the script is still progressing. It is unknown exactly when the movie will air, but it is expected to come after the end of Season 2.

The movie is planned to combine elements of T1S's own comics with those of his cousin Meyres' comics, once again. The story would see the respective villains teaming up against the casts of both series.
