Starbolts #398: Lies of the Royalty


We are two comics away from the end of this epic storyline! Will the Starbolts be able to stop the Misqukatara from using their deadly neurotoxin? Will Crystal and Jack smack their brother around for doing something really dangerous even though the outcome was good? Will the Inobe rebels say "Huh. We really backed the wrong horse here, guys."? The answers to those questions and more will be revealed in time. Right now it looks like the Starbolts still have a job to do!

The story is winding down and a new one is waiting in the wings. There's been a lot of focus on the Whitefox clan hasn't there. In time we'll see why. See you next time!

Starbolts #397: For the Alliance


On the scale of one to ten for how screwed the bad Inobe are.....I think they are at an eleven. Yes. Definitely an eleven. There are going to be in for some serious drama in the next three comics. This storyline is winding down and I'm already planning for the next storyline. In fact, I started on Camp Nanowrimo with a few friends of mine. One of them is from Wikitree, a genealogy site I am a part of. She does genealogy. She does wine tasting. She writes. She is pretty awesome. You can follow her on Twitter here:

In video news, I am working on the Action Comics #1000 review. That will be released sooner or later. Just have some things to sort out. Last night we got word that Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider-Man, passed away. Perhaps I can poke my friends at Wikitree to make a profile for him. Or I could do it myself. =) We'll see. His loss is a huge loss to the comic industry since he was responsible for the likes of Blue Beetle, Spider-Man, The Question and Doctor Strange. His art style was amazing and I really think it inspired the look Spidey has in the MCU. Speaking of that, you can bet that the next Spider-Man movie will be dedicated to him.

As far as the story goes, the bugs are going to make their mark. And it looks like Firaxil's hearing voices again. Hmm. Something should be done about that.

See you next time!

Starbolts #396: The War at Home


Civil wars often rip families apart and it looks like the same thing happened to Sabina's family. Her sister backed the side that was working with the bugs. That's definitely not a good look for them is it? Nope. No way. Still, I think she might turn a corner given what is going to happen very soon. Starbolts #400's script is almost done and to shake things up a bit things might wrap up in #399. We'll see. Right now it looks like the team is heading to a final battle with the rebels. Will they win the day and finally go home? We shall see!

I've been namedropping Sara a lot lately haven't I? This may have something to do with the next storyline I'm working on. My friend, Sam, and I created Sara for the prose story and we've been working on getting her back. We've basically planned out the next one hundred comics. So, you can expect more action and excitement.

For right now I am planning the next video. I haven't decided what I want to do. It might be X-Men Gold #30 or Action Comics #1000. Perhaps I should flip a coin.

See you next time!

Starbolts #395: Imperfect Copies


I didn't think the universe was ready for two of Marcus and Crystal. Did you? I didn't think so. The poor heroes had their uniforms incinerated by Sabina. Oh, Sabina. Marcus is probably kicking himself for actually thinking that she and Firaxil were a GOOD idea. Don't worry about Firaxil. We'll find someone nice for him, soon. Sooner than he thinks anyway. =)

Well, we are on our way to #400 and I actually have the second half of the comic scripted. No spoilers, but, it should be good. Not just saying that because I am the writer. Next week we'll see more action as this comic marches on. So far it looks like Firaxil is wishing he HAD stayed back on Earth. Sometimes you just can't go home again.

See you next time!

Starbolts #394: Hostile Takeover


At first it doesn't look like the Inobe know what they got themselves into. Now the tables have turned! Will the Xazes get to the others in time? Hope so. We got six more comics left of this story and I promise it will not disappoint. Still, I have to admit something. I think Sabina just can't get it through her thick skull that Crystal does not like her much.

There's a very simple reason why Crystal and Marcus kissed and she doesn't get it. It isn't lust. It's more the fact that Crystal is stressed out at the moment. She was happy to see the one constant she has in her life right now because she knows she's gonna have to deal with her parents SOON. She is not looking forward to that, my friends.

Oh and when I made that Avengers pose, I totally had the theme going. I had to add those lines in there because it was a great opportunity to do so. Now I think I might watch the first Avengers movie.

See you all next time!

Starbolts #393: Driven Heroes


You are not prepared for feels this week. No way. I had a hard time revisiting Starbolts #19 and redoing the panels from way back then. I may have made some changes. If you want to see the old version, click here:

The first thing I upgraded was  Princess's version 1.0 armor. She now sports a purple getup. Then I changed the background. Man, this comic has gone through a lot of changes from #19 to now. It's almost four hundred comics later and now things have definitely changed. I figured I'd show just how Sara died because we needed a refresher and it's going to come into play later. If you guessed that the next arc is going to be about Sara, then you are correct.

However, before we get there our buddy Firaxil is going to have to go through a trial by fire that will tax him emotionally and physically. I hope he can handle it.

Meanwhile, Crystal has been dealing with Sabina. She's more than just a drop-dead gorgeous ginger. I can tell you that much. Marcus is charging to her rescue, but, it looks like she's doing fine. She could do with backup. After all. The Starbolts work best as a team. Really love how the last panels turned out. Sara would be proud. And next comic things are gonna get BROKEN!

See you then!

Starbolts #392: The Chase Begins


Looks like Firaxil is back to where his adventure started. Back in the interrogation room of an enemy starship. This time his sister and Sabina are with him. Chances are pretty good that his stay at "Hotel Bad Inobe" is going to be a mercifully short one. We have eight comics until the shattering conclusion of this storyline. Then we move on to another one and I think you all might know what is to come.

Do the bad guys really think negative memories of Sara are going to effect him? I don't know. We'll see just what those memories are next week.

There's also a few things you might have noticed. I added a timeline of events crucial to the Starbolts universe and I edited a few character biographies. I figured it was about time. =D I mean why not? You need a solid basis for things.

 On another note, I had planned to do a video for this weekend, but, I think I am going to focus on this storyline for a while. Been having a lot of fun working on the comic and I think a break might do me some good.

So look forward to next week's comic! See ya then!
