Starbolts #380: The Dragon Awakens



Hail!

WOW! A lot happens this week doesn't it? I didn't want Firaxil to be separated for too long from his friends. So next week expect to see a reunion between him and the other faction of the Inobe. The question is... How are the Starbolts going to react to this other group of Inobe after having been attacked by one Inobe ship already? Here's another question. How will THEY react to Firaxil's friends?

In any event we have a new starship design for the bugs. That's not the only thing that's been redesigned. The ship's front looks like a bug. That's why we only see the huge oval from the side. It's world's better than the last design of the ships.

I added a character moment for the Aquan trio. They're still dealing with the death of their mother at the hands of those creeps. Gonna be a drama-filled storyline. I can tell you that much. Would you expect any less? See you next time!

Starbolts #379: A Fox in the Hen House



Hail!

They're baaack! Yes! The Mosqukatara have returned after being absent from this comic for quite a few years. In all fairness this was because I was working to redesign them. For new readers, the Mosqukatara are insectoid aliens who once enslaved Aquans. They didn't stop there, though. They also held worlds belonging to the Dovianni and the Setleth. Eventually those worlds were freed and the races on those worlds forged an intergalactic alliance akin to the United Nations or the United Federation of Planets in Star Trek.

Now the Inobe have allied themselves with the bugs. Do they know what the bugs DID?! Keep in mind that this is the bad guy faction of the Inobe that allied themselves with the ruthless creatures. They are in the middle of a civil war. That reminds me. What is Firaxil up to? We'll find out soon enough. An old enemy has returned and I don't think it will sit well with our heroes.

See you next time!

Starbolts #378: A Standoff in Space



Hail!

Looks like the Inobe have decided to initiate another part of their plan. This would be to infiltrate the Xazes. One small problem. How are they all going to stay hidden on a ship full of telepaths? That's not gonna be easy. They'll be found out pretty quickly. Expect a fight on the decks of the ship. This is far from over. Just like that guy said.

I feel bad for killing two redshirts. Er...GOLDshirts. Seems like an awful waste to me.  The captain here seems like he's the most fanatical out of all the Inobe we've seen. There still are a couple questions.

1. Was that the same Inobe ship that had Firaxil as a prisoner?
2. WHO IS THEIR ALLY?!

Well, I know the answers. We'll just have to wait and see to find out! Stay tuned!

Starbolts #377: The Inobe Civil War



Hail!

Looks like the team has stumbled upon an intergalactic civil war. I'm sure there's no cause for concern. Unless you happen to live in any of the nearby systems. Again there is a reference to the mysterious ally. Who are they? What do they want? They apparently know about the Alliance and have been spreading lies.

We won't be finding out next week as I'll be reviewing Darkhawk #51. Speaking of Youtube, I have to say yes I am annoyed about the whole thing. All it takes is one bad egg to cause a problem. In this case it was a few. I'll be losing monetization on my videos like a lot of people. It's annoying, I know. I'll still put videos online. I also talked to some friends about Patreon. We'll see. In the mean time I'll still post vids and comics.

See ya next time!

Starbolts #376: Hidden Truths





Hail!

To say "Well, that escalated quickly" is a bit of an understatement. It looks like Firaxil has jumped from the frying pan and into the fire. Now he has several new questions. Who are the Inobe's new allies? What grudge could they possibly have against Earth? What is Sabina's role in all of this? So many questions. So little time.

I also wanted to make this comic my yearly jumping on point for new readers of the comic. This is just to give them a bit of info as to who these people are. They're the next generation of Earth's heroes and it looks like Firaxil has found himself in a bit of some drama. Who said you can never go home again?

This storyline is heating up and will continue next week. After that I will be reviewing Darkhawk #51. So stick around for that. Been a while since I talked about that comic character. Enjoy the comic!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #375: To the Final Frontier



 Hail!

A new storyline begins! I really do hope Crystal doesn't get spacesickness. That would not be good. Anyway, the 'Bolts are on their way to find out what happened to Firaxil after they lost contact with his ship. In the coming attractions comic, we found that he had been abducted by his own people. What could they want with him? Time will tell of course!

Meanwhile, check out the new spaceship. Its design is based on a couple ideas I had for a more streamlined spaceship. It's cool. What makes it even cooler is that it has landing struts. It's a lot smaller than previous ships I designed for the comic. I kind of like it.

Enjoy the comic this week! We're gonna be in for a wild ride!
