Starbolts #384: The Return of the Royalty


Looks like the bugs are back and in a big way! They got a new, more humanoid look. Their personality seems to be heavy on the arrogance. I wanted to give the new Mosqukatara more of a Cardassian/Romulan feel than the generic bug-like alien. Plus it was getting annoying having to have them talk like thizzzzzz. I wanted to evolve them a few steps forward. Now they are back and it means big trouble for the Alliance.

It's probably for the best that Sabina's plan never went into motion. Good thing, too. Things would have been kind of messy. At least Crystal knows how to diffuse the tension a bit.  The story is gonna heat up next week so stay tuned!

Starbolts #383: Man or Monster


Sorry for the delay in comic production. In case you haven't heard, New England was hammered by a late winter storm. We were without power here for  a couple days. I had this comic in my mind ready to go. The problem was I couldn't do anything about it. When the power came back I went right to work in creating the comic. I had some help from Sara's creator, Sam.

Like I said last time I've been toying with bringing her back. I don't really know at this point. We'll see. I'll have to think on it. In the mean time enjoy this feels trip. Note that Firaxil is wearing an Alliance uniform. That's because he umm...lost a little weight inside the chamber. Let's leave it at that.

We're due for another major storm soon and I dunno how that'll impact things. Hopefully it won't be as bad as this last week was. Knock on wood!

See you guys next time!

Starbolts #382: Titanic Memories


This is a blast from the past! For new readers let me explain. A long time ago when the comic was in prose form the Starbolts had another member of the team. Her name was Sara Edwards and like Jenna, Jack, Kevin, Mateo and Marcus she was the daughter of two famous heroes who fought for freedom over land, sea and air. (Yes, they were Agents of S.T.A.R.) Sara was to be in the Starbolts Program until Terra Nova kidnapped her as a baby.

Her parents searched high and low and ended up leaving the Agents. Sadly they couldn't find her and the organization ended up raising the baby. She grew up and was later rescued by Dennis and the rest of the Starbolts

Dennis and Sara had a long history together as they were a couple and when the time came to put the comic together, Sara was killed off during the first major arc. Sara was created by my friend, Sam and we thought it'd be best for Sara to be written out of the story for the time being. I recently talked with Sam and we thought we'd bring Sara back in a way.

I already sort of toyed with the idea of bringing her back when I had Velocity, a speedfreak like Marcus, turn up and she looked like Sara. You might remember that story. That plot thread is still dangling. I really need to resolve that at a later date. Not sure how, yet. I WILL, though. =D It'll just take some time.

Enjoy this week's comic! I'll see ya next time!

Starbolts #381: A Reunion in Space


It looks like the Starbolts have finally reunited with Firaxil! However, it looks like Sabina has her own agenda. What is she going to do? She plans to convince her new friend to stay and fight. To what end? We'll find out soon enough. She's still a good guy. I think. I also think she may be doing this for the wrong reasons. The Starbolts will help in any way they can since the bugs also threaten Earth and the other worlds of the Alliance. This plan could be all for nought. Then again she doesn't know that. Still, you can expect some comedy out of this. Man, if Marcus ever sees this faux Crystal there could be some serious comedy. Or a sitcom-like misunderstanding.

In other news, my Youtube Channel has lost monetization thanks to YouTube's new policy of taking a torch to a molehill. I will still make videos. They just won't have any monetization on it. I just need a ton more subscribers to get the necessary amount to warrant monetization. So, if you like my stuff on YouTube, go like and subscribe to my channel. Link is in the links section of this site.

That's all for now! See you next time!

Starbolts #380: The Dragon Awakens


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


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


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?

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