Your opinion counts a lot. xD

"The Microwave Radio-Frequencies" is a manga-like comic whose first episode came to my mind in the year 1996 (I was 5 years old). But, then, I wasn't good enough at drawing yet...
I had to wait seven years, when I got good enough at drawing and making a well-structured story, to make the very first episodes of that comic and sharing it with "the rest of the world around me": Other teenagers from the junior high school where I was...
However, that "first version" was made with cheap materials, and the original artwork got lost (rather, destroyed... by myself... as my family doesn't like my artwork nor my ideas) in the year 2007 (age 15), the year when I made the very last episode (it's actually a longer story, but I'll try to be as brief and concise as possible). :(
I had to wait until the year 2015 (age 24) to recover the memories of the original version I had made twelve years earlier. This drawing is the "portrait" of the main protagonist, Rebekah, also known as "Random"; she is my Female Persona. xD
I wanted to post the last "title page" instead, but since this doesn't let me to post drawings over 2 megabytes of size, I'll give you the link to the original picture instead:
Basically, "The Microwave Radio-Frequencies" is half a biography (the story about my real life) and half a novel (rather, a soap-opera converted to a comic), where Rebekah and I share the same body, and where we are able to swap places every time I wear the "magical" suit and the "magical" mask, able to enhance my own natural skills and abilities, and getting a "female" body (it's a trap), plus the ability to copy/steal others' super-powers. :P

Random is Rebekah's "alter ego" and nickname, because nobody knows what she will do/make [with] you (this sounds better in Spanish, my native language; I'm from Mexico). And since she also got the power to enter other universes, she's compatible with almost another story (it means she's available for almost any crossover). The suit she wears, which is able to change its form to lots of different modes (from a C-string thong and boob tapes to a bulletproof burka that resembles a war tank) makes her able to use her own libido as her main source of power, which means she's mostly into B.D.S.M. scenarios, she's into a lot of fetishes and she knows what "fanservice" is. Also, as part of her suit, there is an "inner half-face mask" under her mask, which includes a defense mechanism that gets engaged every time she's in peril and blindfolds, deafens and gags her, making her immune to hypnosis, interrogatories, dissuasive techniques and that kind of things. xD
What does she do for a living? She's a bounty hunter (and booty hunter too), a dominatrix, a martial artist, a pole dancer, a hypnotist, a witch, a private eye and, basically a self-taught mercenary, always looking for [mis]adventures that match her interests, whereas she also has to deal with me, the masculine counterpart who lives the normal life of a Mexican commoner... to some extent. She's neither good nor bad in a classical superhero's sense. She's simply... Random. ;)
Alas, since I'm Mexican and the way to make literature and pop art in general is quite different of the US-American one, and given the fact our reality and context are different of the US-American one, there's a lot of untranslatable things that might seem incomprehensible for a non-Mexican watcher. Anyways, if you want me to do my best, and translate and start to make the comic (great again), leave me a reply. xD
