Starbolts #253: The Outsider


Well, we have another revelation this week! Velocity is really Sara Samantha Edwards! I should probably explain. Years ago, during the beginning of this comic, the Starbolts had a teammate named Sara. She was a character created by a friend of mine and we thought we'd kill her off because there were a lot of heroes on the team. So, she met her end at the hands of Demonstorm during the first Demonstorm arc. She had solar based powers. But, hang on! Velocity has superspeed! can she look like Sara Edwards and how does she not have solar powers? These questions and more will be answered in due time! All is not what it seems and it looks like Sara is on the road to redemption. How will the Starbolts react? You'll see soon enough!

In other news, work is going well on the Secret Wars video. Expect that some time after Thanksgiving. I didn't do a comic last week as I was busy working on video stuff. There were a LOT of scans to go through. The trade I have is over 300 pages. So, it took a long time to cover things. It is going to be a top ten deal. Should be a fun video. I had fun filming it. Expect a surprise near the end, too. 

Until next time!

Starbolts #252: The Evil You Do


Like Mateo just said. This adventure has just gotten a wee bit longer. So many questions remain unanswered. The chief one among them is "What are they going to do with that Adam kid?" I do admit, he kinda looks like a jawa. Anything in brown robes and glowing eyes looks like a jawa to me for some reason. It's probably to be expected. I don't know if you can see it. but, he does have a bit of a red tail sticking out.

His appearance won't be revealed until next comic. I will tell you that he's pretty much the opposite of Mateo. Where HE looks like an angel. Adam here will look like a demon. The trick, though, is to not make the demon look a lot like Nightcrawler. Though, I admit that IS tempting. No, No. I can't do that. That wouldn't be prudent.

Jenna is clearly angry in this comic. Next comic will show Marcus interacting with Sara (Velocity). A lot is happening and one has to wonder where the mansion went to. Everything was taken! Even the backyard, foundation and subbasements! Or is all as it seems! Tune in next time!

As for me, work is going to begin on the Secret Wars video! That should be fun. See you all next time!

Starbolts #251: Woman on Fire


Plot twists around every turn here in this comic. We find out what Skull is planning and it turns out Zarantha isn't even the real Zarantha! What's going on with the Guardians? It looks like they are being dismantled from within to me. Seriously. We have a possessed Iron Eagle. We have Zarantha's sister taking over AND we have Velocity scared for her life. Heh. Question is Marcus going to react to Velocity's change in teams. I can guarantee you he is NOT going to be happy.

As far as Jenna's story goes, I changed up her sprite a bit. I don't know how long she'll be aflame like this. But, ya when a thug named Rick Baxter harassed her at school one day, she kind of went FOOM with the fire. If she landed, the grass would have caught fire and so would the statue. It wouldn't have been good.

In any case, my video for last month is up. Check it out here: I reviewed Spider-Woman #1 and I had some fantastic help from Tyger from MUD2MMO and a few other people. Also, the Star Wars title crawl was a pain to do before I found the right tutorial on Youtube. Seriously, when you make a tutorial please make it so people can hear you. That and don't play obnoxiously loud music.

That's all I ask! =) Enjoy this week's comic! Twists around every turn is fun. Take care!
