Starbolts #235: Desperate Measures


Now that time is restored, it's time to end the storyline and to start, I finished up the part with the Gods. I figured I'd end that neatly because the Gods are higher beings. That and when the guy you have doing your dirty work is a raving loon, you do what you can to distance yourself from him. Immortals do it. So do mere mortals, actually.

Next comic will more than likely end this storyline. Ended the Gods bit and now we have the three baddies to deal with AND Robkas. Should be just another day at the office for Xemplara and the Starbolts.

In other news, June is upon us and I am going to work on a new Fourth of July animation to replace the one I originally made AND replace the one on Youtube. That one is kind of old and while I still have that old file, I think it'd be a good idea to update it. Kind of a perfectionist that way.

I am also working on new video ideas. By working, I mean research. I'm looking into the Marvel Comics vault and picking the comics I am going to review for another retrospective. Should be good. Should be exciting!

Will see you all next time!

Starbolts #234: Time Goes On


Now this is a jumping on point for new readers. I've showed the origin of the Starbolts, Soldier Six, the baddies they face and of course how two members of the team met and fell in love. I did all of this without rebooting the universe. Or renumbering the comic. That would have just been flat out annoying to do.

The comic took me a little bit longer than usual since I had to redo the original child sprites for young Mateo, Marcus, Jenna and Kevin. I'm pleased with how they turned out and I may use them again. Still, that scene. I've got "STARBOLT BABIES" going on in my head.

Later, we've got the future Starbolts. There are some obvious references to the old 'Bolts with them. That's the daughter of Manta and Lady Liberty, The son of Angela and Kevin, The son of Jack and Anya. And of course, the son of Quetzal and Aquita. The others, I think are just non related people. Not everyone needs to be related ya know? Only two are cousins.

The future's looking good, though. I had a good time working on the comic and I hope it's a good jumping on point for new readers. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next time!

Starbolts #233: Preserving the Future


Well, here we are at the final comic concerning the trip through time! Next week will be the jumping on point that I've been talking about the last few weeks. It's good to be back doing the comic. Last month, I was kind of under the weather. But, I am back and I did manage to get a vid out. You can see that here:

As far as this comic goes, I wanted to tie up any and all loose ends in the past before I sent Sirak back through the time vortex. Which, by the way, was fun to make in my paint program. I took a bit of artistic license as I didn't want it to look exactly like Doctor Who's time vortex.  I also always planned Sirak to show his wings. Finally, he can spread them out and show his dad's side, a bit.

Now that he is going back to his time. I wonder. Will he remember this adventure? Will Robkas? It's hard to say, really.

In other news, I have submitted Comic Showcase to Channel Awesome as they are having auditions. Wish me luck! Also, stay tuned for next week's exciting jumping on point for new readers. I may make it a double size one. We'll see. It depends on how much history I want to cover.

See you next time! Heh....Next time. Oh, that's hilarious!
