Quick update 12/14/14

Hail. I have just finished putting my backlog up on Channel Awesome's new site. New content will start up again later this week as I have a new holiday comic in the works. It's funny and it should be ready soon. After that, I plan to finish up my Secret Wars video and have that online as soon as possible. I thank you for your patience. Keep reading and enjoying the stuff here in the mean time. Thanks again!

Also, the videos I have planned for after the Secret Wars are:

X-Men #1 (1991)
Young Avengers #1
Ms. Marvel #1

Should be a fun three videos. Can't wait to work on it. So, look forward to that and more material soon!

I have also put all my comics up on deviantart.com for all to see. You can check it out here: http://cferra1.deviantart.com

I may change all the image links here to reflect the change. We'll see. If anyone sees any broken images, let me know so that I can replace them. Imageshack has a tendency to break images after a time.

I am also seriously considering moving my content over to Wordpress. I'll have to think about it. If anyone has tips on how to quickly bring stuff over from here to Wordpress, let me know.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

Update 12/4/14

Hail!

Here's a quick update for you all. I recently got back from Thanksgiving vacation and I have been working hard on a new Comic Showcase. I haven't forgotten anyone who watches my videos or reads my comics. More are on the way. So, please hang tight. The Secret Wars video is taking a long time to edit.

In other news, tgwtg has moved to http://www.channelawesome.com  
This means I have to put up my old comics there. I'll still put content here. I just might be a bit late with comics. I may have some content this weekend as my video is nearing completion. So, sit tight. And since the old, OLD comics aren't here in the archives, you can check them out here:

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for a new edition of Comic Showcase AND more Starbolts action!

Starbolts #253: The Outsider



Hail!

Well, we have another revelation this week! Velocity is really Sara Samantha Edwards! I should probably explain. Years ago, during the beginning of this comic, the Starbolts had a teammate named Sara. She was a character created by a friend of mine and we thought we'd kill her off because there were a lot of heroes on the team. So, she met her end at the hands of Demonstorm during the first Demonstorm arc. She had solar based powers. But, hang on! Velocity has superspeed! So...how can she look like Sara Edwards and how does she not have solar powers? These questions and more will be answered in due time! All is not what it seems and it looks like Sara is on the road to redemption. How will the Starbolts react? You'll see soon enough!

In other news, work is going well on the Secret Wars video. Expect that some time after Thanksgiving. I didn't do a comic last week as I was busy working on video stuff. There were a LOT of scans to go through. The trade I have is over 300 pages. So, it took a long time to cover things. It is going to be a top ten deal. Should be a fun video. I had fun filming it. Expect a surprise near the end, too. 

Until next time!

Starbolts #252: The Evil You Do



Hail!

Like Mateo just said. This adventure has just gotten a wee bit longer. So many questions remain unanswered. The chief one among them is "What are they going to do with that Adam kid?" I do admit, he kinda looks like a jawa. Anything in brown robes and glowing eyes looks like a jawa to me for some reason. It's probably to be expected. I don't know if you can see it. but, he does have a bit of a red tail sticking out.

His appearance won't be revealed until next comic. I will tell you that he's pretty much the opposite of Mateo. Where HE looks like an angel. Adam here will look like a demon. The trick, though, is to not make the demon look a lot like Nightcrawler. Though, I admit that IS tempting. No, No. I can't do that. That wouldn't be prudent.

Jenna is clearly angry in this comic. Next comic will show Marcus interacting with Sara (Velocity). A lot is happening and one has to wonder where the mansion went to. Everything was taken! Even the backyard, foundation and subbasements! Or is all as it seems! Tune in next time!

As for me, work is going to begin on the Secret Wars video! That should be fun. See you all next time!

Starbolts #251: Woman on Fire



Hail!

Plot twists around every turn here in this comic. We find out what Skull is planning and it turns out Zarantha isn't even the real Zarantha! What's going on with the Guardians? It looks like they are being dismantled from within to me. Seriously. We have a possessed Iron Eagle. We have Zarantha's sister taking over AND we have Velocity scared for her life. Heh. Question is...how is Marcus going to react to Velocity's change in teams. I can guarantee you he is NOT going to be happy.

As far as Jenna's story goes, I changed up her sprite a bit. I don't know how long she'll be aflame like this. But, ya when a thug named Rick Baxter harassed her at school one day, she kind of went FOOM with the fire. If she landed, the grass would have caught fire and so would the statue. It wouldn't have been good.

In any case, my video for last month is up. Check it out here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8imEyewoMcA I reviewed Spider-Woman #1 and I had some fantastic help from Tyger from MUD2MMO and a few other people. Also, the Star Wars title crawl was a pain to do before I found the right tutorial on Youtube. Seriously, when you make a tutorial please make it so people can hear you. That and don't play obnoxiously loud music.

That's all I ask! =) Enjoy this week's comic! Twists around every turn is fun. Take care!

Starbolts #250: Chasing Liberty



Well, M'anta. You could say Jenna is...hot for you.  I should probably stop here with the fire related puns shouldn't I? I wish I had more but, you know this girl is on FIRE! Heh...Okay. I'll stop. I'll stop. Sheesh. It's something when even I get annoyed by the silly puns I make. Anyway, this is the 250th comic and it took a long time to get this far. I had a lot of fun making the comic over the years and I still do. This is by no means the end as Starbolts vs Guardians is going to continue for a while. It's just starting to heat up! Pun unintended. I SWEAR!

Anyway, it's been great working on this project for about six years as a sprite comic and many more as prose. I'm not going to slow down, like I said. As for my other projects...

Next week, I'll be working on the next Comic Showcase and I will focus on the sensational Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew. After I planned that video, I had to make a decision. I was going to focus on X-Factor and the return of Jean Grey. BUT! I found I couldn't really talk about it. There wasn't much material to be had. I may cover it sooner or later, though. In its place, I will be covering the Secret Wars.  That, to me had a bigger impact on the Marvel Universe than say Jean returning.  Sorry if you wanted to see Jean's return. I'll probably do that next Marvel history retrospective. I may need to double up then since there aren't many Golden Age books I can look at next time.

That's all the news for this week, everyone! Enjoy the comic and keep reading because things are heating up as the Starbolts gear up for war! See you next time!
