You found the Doghouse, home of Raydog, aka Marz Workman. I live in Texas, USA!

About me

I am fascinated by the comics of the Golden Age; especially those in the public domain. For me, these are much better than today's soap opera comics. Despite the inconsistencies, these were true comics. Action, adventure, and to the point.

I also design open source characters.

Maybe I'm just an old man! :)

My Open Source Creations

I did have another OSC, but I did cross over the copyright line and it was rightfully removed. I just got carried away. :)

Other Places I Post(sometimes) Characters

The OPEN SOURCE legal text (for those who need it)

First off, Open Source characters, etc., require no author citation, if they do, they are not open source. If you wish to reference the original author, that's fine. If not, that's fine too. As for me, of course I would like to be referenced as creator, but I don't require it.

The first two, CHARACTER and TEAM OF CHARACTERS, are the most likely to be used. ITEM and LOCATION will probably only be used if they specifically involve an OS character or team. An ITEM or LOCATION in itself probably isn't a good idea unless it is a "character", so to speak.

<CHARACTER> is an "Open-Source Character" and has been deemed so, specifically, for use by anyone by the original creator. The only rule about using him/her/it is that your work must have this notation:

"The character of <CHARACTER> is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving <CHARACTER>, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."


<TEAM OF CHARACTERS> is an "Open-Source Team of Characters" and has been deemed so, specifically, for use by anyone by the original creator. The only rule about using them is that your work must have this notation:

"The team of <TEAM OF CHARACTERS> is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving <TEAM OF CHARACTERS>, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."


<ITEM> is an "Open-Source Item" and has been deemed so, specifically, for use by anyone by the original creator. The only rule about using it is that your work must have this notation:

"The item of <ITEM> is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving <ITEM>, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."


<LOCATION> is an "Open-Source Location" and has been deemed so, specifically, for use by anyone by the original creator. The only rule about using it is that your work must have this notation:

"The character of <LOCATION> is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving <LOCATION>, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."


Please feel free to copy, paste, and edit the above for your OS works.
