Starbolts #190: Preparations for War

Everyone who has ever hated the Starbolts is here and I mean EVERYONE! See that bug lady? That's a Mosqukatara unlike the ones we've seen in the comic before. I'll explain why she's like that later. We also have the Setleth crazy, Halconis, the Legion and the dark Aquan avatars! Sufficed to say, the coming comics are going to be action packed. However, the battle won't be a battle in the conventional sense. No, No. Demonstorm has something else in mind for Earth's mightiest heroes!  Heh. Take note at Valentine holding court. Those three guys are under her complete control. I'd have had ALL the men over there. But, someone has to watch the fight between War and Granite.

Some of the baddies got updated sprites like Cobra and Granite, by the way. They look a LOT better.  I've also changed how Demonsk looks on the outside. Red skies are cool. =) Anyway, the scene is set for an intense confrontation. A confrontation that will have to wait until after next week for I will be reviewing Superior Spider-Man #1. Oh, what fun that'll be!

See you next time!

Starbolts #189: Darkened Mirror


Today's comic was a long time coming. Mainly because I wanted to have M'anta meet his alternate self. Now that M'anta is enhanced by the Gods, it remains to be seen what else he can do. Frankly, I feel bad for Demonstorm in the upcoming battle. He's going to be in for a WORLD of hurt. =) The question remains is where will alternate M'anta go? He has all of time and space to go to. He may even show up somewhere down the road. We shall see!

In other news, I'll be working on my Superior Spider-Man review soon and another project like the Marvel history one. I believe I've already said I'll be working on a New Warriors retrospective. It should be fun as they were my favorite team growing up. I just need to dig out the box the comics are in! I have a feeling it'll be like an archaeology expedition to my attic. It should be fun, like I said. It's all a matter of getting up there and finding the stuff I need. We shall see how that goes, true believers!

See you next time!

Starbolts #188: A Disturbing Universe

The plot continues to thicken as Jenna and M'anta have finally arrived on the others' ship. It also seems that while they were traveling around time and space, Jack and the crew had to deal with Tayalla. Well, the alternate Tayalla anyway. Things are also heating up as Demonstorm has collected the avatars of death, the underworld and war. We're getting close to the final battle in the storyline and trust me, it's going to be awesome!

In other news, I've starting thinking about another project I am going to work on after I cover Superior Spider-Man #1 this month. It should be an interesting ride as it's going to focus on a team I've liked since I started reading comics. I was a bit inspired by Linkara's look at the Teen Titans in March to cover my favorite team, the New Warriors. There's a few similarities. But, I promise to make my retrospective a bit different from my friend's epic month long look at his favorite group.

The reason why it inspired me to create a look at my favorite team is because they deserve a lot of credit in that they're more than just a group of teenage heroes who started the Civil War. There are great stories here and I will definitely be covering them. It should be a fun ride!

Just something to look forward to after I deal with Superior Spider-Man. Sigh.

Until next time!
