Starbolts #310: When the World Comes Crashing Down
Earlier this week, I mentioned on Twitter that I was going to drop a train on Crystal. Not a literal one of course. This one was full of drama. First off, her adopted brother, Dennis, is an alien. That's a shocker! It also explains why he didn't change like Jenna and Adam when Jade Skull converted them a while back. Poor Crystal.
Now we find out the exact circumstances of her parents trying to sell her to Terra Nova. Crystal is going to bonk some heads when she gets back to Earth from wherever this is. I really dig the "Kirby Krackle" I made on the background. The floating island is of course D.I.S.C.O.R.D. island. How did it get there? We'll find out soon.
There's a lot going on this week that's for sure. I may even have the writer of that file, Clive Marshall, show up. He's a character from the prose Starbolts stories and he's a right nasty piece of work, let me tell you. From the file, you can tell he is cold. He has a connection with certain members of the Legion, too. We'll find out more about that soon enough, too.
Oh and Crystal has diamond hard claws now. They are like cat claws in that they retract but they aren't as indestructible as Wolverine's. They are diamond-like and come out of her fingers. She's going to wonder how she got them and there is an answer for it. Right now she's running on pure adrenaline and fighting the urge to crumble into a heap and cry.
She almost did and Tornado sneaked up behind her. Luckily she took care of it and got him good. ;-)
Video next week with Harmonica Jay on drums!
