Sneak Peak

a little history

United Forces was a combined concept that Gary Dufner and Phil Avelli were working on before they knew it was to eventually to become. The two friends met in art college in NYC (School of Visual Arts) and would draw silly pictures of themselves wielding weapons and killing things.

While Avelli worked on his own comic book Leaf, Dufner started putting their characters in comic stories as “Gary ‘n Phil” and eventually titled it “United Forces”, after the love of the band S.O.D. and their famous song.
