Thunk was originally a doting leader of the Crater Critters. He would often chide his fellow critters, saying “Do what you are supposed to do and it will be okay.” In a darkly ironic twist, he later became defined by two defining faults as a leader: he failed to save Xubu Xubu, and he failed at the famous fire. In a last-ditch effort to redeem himself as a leader, he managed to herd the other critters into a safe spot when the Brooze Black attacked their world. He underwent a dramatic transformation, and became a living weapon: a sentient, one-handed mace! Time will tell if destiny will offer Thunk a chance to truly redeem himself…
John Osborne was inspired by the iconic one-handed weapons in comics, such as Mjolnir, Stormbreaker, and the Boom Tube, when he originally designed Apannon Starbreaker‘s signature weapon Thunk. When the cartoonists of the Indie Comic Union got together to workshop the first Quilt story, they decided to make Thunk into a living weapon, and a character in his own right!
