Starbolts #323: Dangerous Liaisons



This week has Marcus and Crystal go on the run! Where are they going to go? Well, they can't go to Aquarius on one engine as planned. It would take too long to travel the thirty some light-years to Aquarius.  So, Earth seems to be the best bet. Where could they go? Everyone on Earth'll be looking for them. And if the Manhunters are any indication, they'd be out for blood. Yeah, I decided to give the purple armored guys the name of "Manhunters". It's a sort of reference to Marvel's Mandroids who helped guard several prisons in the Marvel Universe.

At least she's not in trouble with the Agents. She's just in trouble with the now corrupt DMA. The 'Bolts will find out who is in charge soon! And after next week we will find out where our friends are going. Next week is gonna be a video! It will be another character spotlight. I'm not sure who just yet. But, rest assured it will be awesome. Then we'll be back with the 'Bolts for more exciting fun!

I do have a question, though. What do you all think of the Marcus/Crystal relationship? Been testing the waters here and I am curious as to what you think. I have two main ones and the third has kinda fallen to the wayside. I was just curious because next comic may see some changes happen. We shall see. In the mean time, enjoy the comic! See you next time!

Starbolts #322: Strike of the Cobra


Drama happening on two fronts this week! First we have a mysterious man visiting H.P. Gladstone, the former head of the Department of Metahuman Affairs. Who is he? Readers will know. He showed up at the end of the last comic. Now that he is back and has inserted himself into the department, who know what he will do next. MWAHAHA! Whatever it is, the 'Bolts are not going to be happy with this turn of events.

They have their own issues to deal with now that we finally know what Umbra's been up to. He's been trying to dig up dirt on the team! That is not going to sit well with anyone. Least of all Crystal. Poor lady. She ruined a perfectly good punching bag! Well, they can be replaced and they have at least two other ones. What will Marcus do? Chances are he's gonna have a little talk with Crazy Steve. Just a little chat.

Meanwhile, I need to come up with names for the space station. I'll most likely think on it this week.  I'm also planning the next arc and the next video. The next video might be a spotlight on the X-Men since I haven't talked about them in a long time. We'll see. =D

In the mean time, enjoy the comic! More drama next week. Who wants to bet Crystal cut Umbra up good? And....what is Gladstone hiding?

Starbolts #321: The Wonders of Mad Science


This week I had intended to test out a new format for the comic with four panels across and a bunch of rows. Sadly, it didn't work and I had a bit of an overlap. If you saw the comic before I deleted it, I apologize. Things seem to be better now. We're back with this formatting for the time being. I initially planned to do a comic with 40 panels like that for a special occasion. It was a neat test but it didn't work. Ah well. I know I can change the width on blogspot but I don't think it'll look right. Still, I'll keep the template around for future comics if I ever figure out how to work with what I have here.

Speaking of mad science, it looks like Cobra is alive again! I don't think Jack is gonna like this. Speaking of the Starbolts, look for more action with them next week. They are most likely dealing with Umbra and his overall craziness. At least now we know where the Legion's base is and who took it. Zarantha's back and man is she trouble.

More action next week! Will there be more mad science? Stay tuned!
