Updates and such


What's up? Well, I am back from my break and I thought I would update everyone on what I've been up to. This week, I'll be working on a new comic. Expect one a week since I am going to TRY to get the storyline done by the end of the month. Emphasis on TRY here. If it goes into 2012 a little, it's no big loss to be honest. I don't want to rush the story and there's still a lot to cover. So, that may end up happening.

I still need to figure out how I will show the old comics. I have an idea of what to do. It may prove...interesting.

Another thing I am going to talk about is my video. I will definitely have a new Comic Showcase soon. It's going to be Superman #1 and I will have it up some time in December. It should be fun to do because, hey, who doesn't like the man of steel? Well, except Lex Luthor of course.

The videos are going well and I'm actually trying to get a new stinger for each video. So far I've used Manta, Kevin/Norad and Bluestreak. I'll probably have a new one for the Superman review. I just need to think about which one.

Anyway, as for a list of other comics I will do? Well, that'd be spoiling the surprise!

I'm also taking part in this year's TGWTG Secret Santa program. You can see the specifics here: It should be a blast to do and I hope the person I have likes what I have in store. =D

There's not much else to talk about right now. I will be posting a comic soon and even updates every now and then. Thanks for reading!

Starbolts #137: The Siren's Call

Hey! Today isn't Saturday? Nope. No it isn't. It's just a Thursday and I'm posting a comic early. It's a long one, I know. I wanted to get a few things out of the way storyline wise. Jack may seem a bit whiny. But, that's sort of the point when you consider the following: The whole point is that he has finally adjusted to his new life as a cryogenic cyborg from the '80s when all of a sudden every old wound is ripped freshly open. Would unbalance the best of them.

Poor guy. We'll see what happens with him and Scarlett soon enough. Will Jack and Snake come face to face, though? Yeah. That's a given at this point.

In other news, I've got the other two DC reboot books I'll be taking a look at. I got Justice League #1 and Blue Beetle #1. After that, I'll be looking at the X-Men Regenesis books. That's the plan so far. Plans may of course change. It's unlikely. But, eh, you gotta do what ya gotta do.

See ya next time!

Starbolts #136: Fatal Reunion

Power outages suck. I spent three days in the dark without power thanks to the freak late October snowstorm we had here in NH. Obviously, this cancelled my plans for the Halloween video I was going to do. No matter. There's always next year, right? I thought so. In any case, I have this week's comic up and man I really like how this turned out. It took me a minute or so to figure out how to do reflections on glass in the last panels. I also modeled Ponce de Leon square after Copley square in Boston. It's not so much TIMES Square. It's got all the glitz of it, though.

One thing I MAY change is the window designs in the first two panels. I'll have to think up better windows. For some reason they just scream "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" to me. Oh well. Progress is progress and I will be back here next week. Cya!
