Cyberfrog and Heather Swain are back in action! In the tradition of other great duos like Rocket Raccoon and Groot, Howard the Duck and Beverly Switzler, Rocky and Bullwinkle or Crusader Rabbit and Rags the Tiger, everyone’s favorite frog/ full-grown woman pair have returned in their first new adventure since the 1990s.
Legendary comic book artist and writer Ethan Van Sciver regained the rights to his old characters and returned them to action in his hot new work Cyberfrog: Blood Honey. Cyberfrog, spawned by alien technology, fights huge extraterrestrial hornets and other menaces on a post-apocalyptic Earth.
Human blood is a necessary ingredient for the “honey” that the hornets dine on, hence the title. The adventures of Cyberfrog and Heather Swain – plus supporting character Salamandroid – are sort of a blend of the best elements of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Mastermind Ethan Van Sciver has already promised Cyberfrog’s adoring fans a followup, to be be titled Cyberfrog: Rekt Planet.
Van Sciver, after legendary runs at Marvel and DC, is the leader of the comic book “outlaws” pursuing their own projects free from the corporate influence of the Big Two publishers.

Like so many others I found myself binge-listening to as many as I could do per day for several weeks and now I’m among the many waiting with anticipation for the next day’s installment.
Van Sciver has spent nearly three decades in the comic book industry as an artist and writer. Most of his time was spent at DC with legendary runs on Green Lantern and Flash, but in recent years “Uncle Ethan” as he’s called has become one of the leaders of the indy comic book “Outlaws” going their own way to create works free of the toxic influence of the Big Two publishers.
