Once upon a time, our world was protected by fearless champions known as the Dazzling Heroes. These masked vigilantes would scour the globe for traces of high criminal activity and generally unaccepted wickedness, banishing the minions of Evil as they went. It was a time of marvels, a time of fabulous feats of courage and determination, a time when a few brave souls fighting under the glorious banner of Good sought to make a difference in a world twisted by corruption and darkness. It was around 1996.

Now, the world is mostly at peace, and the heroes have disbanded. But Evil never really dies. A relic has been found; a crystal. A shard of pure hatred, with an aura so dark it engulfs its keepers in malice. This remnant of a darker past must be banished as well. For this perilous mission, only the best of the Dazzling Heroes have been chosen. They shall embark on a formidable interstellar voyage, with a single clear objective: to dump some big glowy rock in a transdimensional vortex a couple of billion miles away.

But not everything will go as planned...

When I was in high school (around 1996), I would draw comics whenever I got the chance, postponing my curricular activities for the pleasure of creating goofy adventures almost nobody would ever see or care about. This is when the Dazzling Heroes were born, but they weren't really an original creation: they were simply a crude rendition of my friend Dom and myself as superheroes. And by crude, I mean crude:


But as time passed, I started getting fond of these ridiculous characters. They didn't have any superpowers. Their backstory kept changing. And as I built their universe with Dom's help, and later on my own as school became a thing of the past (thank god), they became their own thing. It really didn't matter what story I wanted to tell, or in what setting, I just kept coming back to them. And as the years went by, the "lore" of the Dazzling Heroes got richer and richer. It is this evolution that I seek to recreate with DazzWorld: to take something simple, almost (completely) dumb, and make it into something greater.

What is there to say about BenBD? I came to be in 1984, in the wild and dangerous region of Montreal, Canada. Yes, I am French Canadian, with a healthy repertoire of unspeakable profanities. I've been making comics for as long as I can remember, and DazzWorld is my attempt at bringing the Dazzling Heroes to the webcomic format.

I hope you will enjoy it. :)
