Starbolts #370: To Protect the Green Monster


This week's comic comes with a little bit of a twist. It seems something sinister is still within Crystal. We can thank Zarantha for that. I wonder if it's still in Dennis. Hmm. Time will tell. Here's hoping our green cat-like friend can help her out. I had a few ideas for the look of the Green Monster. I was thinking this round fuzzy thing. But, it ended up looking like one of the friguys from McDonalds. Eh, I didn't think that was a good idea. So, I decided to run with a cat-like creature.

It is kinda cute. Friendly and a bit eccentric. Speaking of eccentric. It seems Relic Hunter is going to be lost for a while. Here's hoping he STAYS lost. We know he won't. But, we can dream. Here's hoping Greenie can help out Crystal, though!

See ya next time!

Comic Showcase #51: Len Wein Tribute

Starbolts #369: Creatures of the Night

Happy Halloween! This year's Halloween comic has Mateo and Aquita take their son Sirak trick-or-treating for the first time. As you might expect hilarity ensued. Kid's got candy on his mind. He also seems to have an strange sense of timing as he walks in on his parents in the last panel! Haha. The kid's okay, though. I'm sure Uncle Richie will be taking care of him while the adults have some downtime.

I wanted to do this comic for a while because I haven't focused on Mateo and Aquita in a while. It's nice to focus on them and the last few weeks have been stressful for our heroes. Nothing like a good amount of humor. I wasn't going to have Rich who you know is Centurion be anything really scary. Nah. Just using his powers like that was enough. I'm sure the Guardians of the Universe don't mind that misuse of powers. =)

Hope you all enjoy this week's comic! See you next time!

Starbolts #368: Gotta Catch 'Em All


The next stage of the adventure continues with Relic Hunter basically trying to catch them all. We won't see the attempt next week because I'll be making my annual Halloween comic. It's going to be a good one! I have a pretty cool idea for it!

 In early November, we will see R.H. trying to catch the Green Monster. I had to laugh when I made that a thing because the Boston Red Sox have a mascot called the Green Monster and there's a wall at Fenway Park with the same name. In hindsight, I wonder if I should have made a beast based on Lucky the Leprechaun. Or the Bruins Bear.....

I was going to make a joke saying Talinn was the Green Monster but nah. That wouldn't have been cool.

Look for the Halloween comic next week. I'm gonna work on designs for this green monster.  I'm picturing something much smaller than Roc for some reason. Maybe because I want to keep it simple.

In other news, I have the next few video reviews planned out. I'll be making a tribute to Len Wein and following that I will be working on Marvel Generations videos and after that? Well, Darkhawk IS returning to the spotlight....

Should be an interesting few videos! See ya next time!

Starbolts #367: Herculean Failure


Today's comic has a blend of action and humor. Relic Hunter is admittedly very new to this supervillain like Nautilus was. The only difference here is that Nautilus is well....competent. Yeah. That's the word I am looking for. That man at least built a suit to fight people with. Relic Hunter just gets super strength and suddenly thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Chances are the two will be sharing a cell together.

Poor Aquita has to deal with the guy literally falling over her. Speaking of. I miss writing her and Mateo. I feel like I haven't used them much. I will rectify that sooner or later.

In other news, the technical issue I had when it comes to vids has been resolved. So, I am back in black! Look for a new video from me soon! It won't be next week as I'll be attending to some family stuff.  But, I will have it up. It's going to be a tribute to the late, great Len Wein. I hope you all enjoy it!

See you next time!

Starbolts #366: A Sudden Turn of Events


Well, that certainly escalated hasn't it? Looks like Aristotle got himself a wee bit of an upgrade. I haven't decided what kind of powers he will have. I have a week to figure it out. I'm thinking something related to ancient Greek myths. Haven't really decided, yet. I had debated turning him into a Minotaur or something. That would be a wee bit too cliche.  I mean, yeah he's Greek but there's no need to turn him into a Greek monster.

His powers need to suit the name "Relic Hunter" though. We'll see. But, ya this is his villain origin story. Will work on his gimmick. Right now it's "Eccentric billionaire nutcase".

In other news, I have scripted parts of my next video. It's been delayed due to technical issues. Not camera or anything like that. I'll leave it at that. I will have it up soon. It's going to be a tribute to the late great Len Wein and it should be good! Stay tuned!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #365: Earning Your Wings


Today's comic took a while to produce because of a death in the family. I'm doing better today. It's probably going to take some time before I really get back into the swing of things. This month hasn't really been that good personally. There have been some bright spots here and there. But, I hope October fairs better than September did.

Anyway, we get to see modern day Sari this time around. I had a lot of options when designing the city, but, I went with an alley. There is this structure in the real city that is very elaborate and really cool looking to be honest. It's in the Saal square. I wanted to make this tower, but, it's kind of complicated.

It is what it is. I should also note that Idrak was speaking Mazandarani when talking to Amsha. In fact, Amsha is most likely a descendant of Idrak. How is this possible you ask? Well, she most likely had several brothers and the last name got passed down through the centiries down to Amsha.  Sure the odds are great that Icy would meet the woman but if there's one thing I learned this week it's...

Never tell me the odds!

See you next time!
