Starbolts #199: Out of the Darkness


The first thing I want to do this week is give a major shout out to ShadowWing Tronix because it's his birthday and he's a great friend of mine and a fan of the stuff I do on the Internet. He, like me, is a fellow comic fan and deserves a ton of respect. Even if he's a fan of the Go-Bots. Which...I didn't like growing up. At all. I digress. Check out his stuff here if you want to read good articles by him:

One of the articles he did came in the wake of my Amazing Spider-Man #700 review. He countered my argument that Doc Ock shouldn't have been the one to replace Spider-Man. He made some decent points and I agreed. It still doesn't change the fact that I'm not a fan of that story. I think we both agreed on that one. So, yeah, check out Tronix's stuff. Make the old guy happy. Maybe even give him a mint condition Leader-1 or something. Cheers, Tronix!

With that out of the way, we're just one comic away from Starbolts #200. What will happen? Well, the comic is going to be a special, double sized event. A lot is going to happen, so I am going to need a LOT more panels as everyone faces the forces of Demonstorm and his Legion.

You might be wondering why Robkas didn't detect Aquita's telepathy. Well, do you honestly think she'd allow HIM into his brain? I don't think you can wiretap into telepathic conversations. Well, you could. But, Robkas's brain is on a do not call list. =)

Also, I love writing Garazo. He just doesn't have to say much to be badass. Tanis is now the black sheep of Earth's mightiest heroes. He's going to have to do something incredibly awesome to get back in everyone's good graces. Well, he has one comic to do it!

In video news, I have my collection of New Warriors comics down and will be working on a vid. I may have to do two videos on the storylines of Each of the main characters. Should be fun. Should also be a LITTLE bit CW. You'll...see what I mean. See you next time!

Starbolts #198: The Last Starbolt


Wow! What can I say about today's comic as we're two weeks away from Starbolts #200 and the finale of this really, really long story arc. Believe it or not, this arc started way back around #150. So, this has been a very long storyline. It looks like Tanis is back to his normal self. Even if he looks like a human bug right here. The question of the hour is. Are the Starbolts really dead? Well, you don't see bodies on the ruined bridge. That could mean anything! They could have been disintegrated or in another part of the ship, dead.  The bridge is only a small part of the ship!

Speaking of the ship, I made the crash site a little like the Enterprise-D crash in Star Trek Generations. I always thought that was neat for a crash scene. Sucks about the ship, of course. She was a fine ship.

Anyway, it looks like Tanis is back to normal and the Legion wants another round. Starbolts #200 is coming fast! Are you ready for the final showdown?
