Universe Gun and the Art of Dr Mike 2000


Hey, Nu-Millarworld!

In my alter-ego as Dr Mike 2000, I produce comic art and writing on my website
I used to make superhero game mods too, so the name may be familiar to Freedom Force enthusiasts.

These days my main project is Universe Gun, a psychedelic superhero sci-fi long form webcomic. Thing Legion of Superheroes or EGOs drawn in the style of the Yellow Submarine?

There are a few other short strips there too, and my semi-regular blog, which I’ve just updated with some comics reviews. Previous entries cover comics, science, science fiction and art.

Have a look around. I’d love to know what you think.


Universe Gun gets updated with a new 7 page chapter every couple of months. The last update happened between Millarworlds, so to speak, and concludes #3: Earth

Imagine you’re an atomic teenager on the run in a hostile universe! How long can you go before you resort to Manouevre Omega-Seven?!!?


Nice to see you found your way to the new board Mark.


Thanks, Gar. It took me a while to figure out why my old Favourites weren’t working, but I made it :slight_smile:


Universe Report 4, my latest blog, is up on
There’s updates on the status of the earlier chapters of Universe Gun. I outline a few of this year’s plans, but mainly celebrate the completion of Universe Gun #4 last weekend by posting a single panel from every page.

Looks kinda like this!


I don’t have a lot of new art to show, as I’ve done my first Oz Comic-Con selling physical copies of Universe Gun, I’ve presented at Adelaide University’s Inkers and Thinkers academic symposium on comics, and I’ve been writing and thumbnailing Universe Gun #5!

Time for another blog!
