Starbolts #366: A Sudden Turn of Events


Well, that certainly escalated hasn't it? Looks like Aristotle got himself a wee bit of an upgrade. I haven't decided what kind of powers he will have. I have a week to figure it out. I'm thinking something related to ancient Greek myths. Haven't really decided, yet. I had debated turning him into a Minotaur or something. That would be a wee bit too cliche.  I mean, yeah he's Greek but there's no need to turn him into a Greek monster.

His powers need to suit the name "Relic Hunter" though. We'll see. But, ya this is his villain origin story. Will work on his gimmick. Right now it's "Eccentric billionaire nutcase".

In other news, I have scripted parts of my next video. It's been delayed due to technical issues. Not camera or anything like that. I'll leave it at that. I will have it up soon. It's going to be a tribute to the late great Len Wein and it should be good! Stay tuned!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #365: Earning Your Wings


Today's comic took a while to produce because of a death in the family. I'm doing better today. It's probably going to take some time before I really get back into the swing of things. This month hasn't really been that good personally. There have been some bright spots here and there. But, I hope October fairs better than September did.

Anyway, we get to see modern day Sari this time around. I had a lot of options when designing the city, but, I went with an alley. There is this structure in the real city that is very elaborate and really cool looking to be honest. It's in the Saal square. I wanted to make this tower, but, it's kind of complicated.

It is what it is. I should also note that Idrak was speaking Mazandarani when talking to Amsha. In fact, Amsha is most likely a descendant of Idrak. How is this possible you ask? Well, she most likely had several brothers and the last name got passed down through the centiries down to Amsha.  Sure the odds are great that Icy would meet the woman but if there's one thing I learned this week it's...

Never tell me the odds!

See you next time!

Starbolts #364: Phoenix Rising


Today the Ice Phoenix has reclaimed her birthright and place among Earth's mightiest. Where will she go from here? We'll find out next comic. Sufficed it to say, she is going to fit in really well with the ranks of Earth's mightiest. Well, once she control her powers a bit and doesn't renders baddies to mounds of snow. That was just rude right there. Oh well.

In other news, I am planning my next video and it will be a Len Wein tribute. Should be an interesting video about the comic creator's greatest creations. Some I talked about on the show before. Some I haven't. Anyway, keep an eye out of it! It should be on its way soon!

As for me I am going to work on some more comic stuff. Ice Phoenix has arrived and I am pretty sure the world will never again be the same!

Starbolts #363: A Roc in a Hard Place


This week we're introducing a brand new villain to the Starbolts universe! His name is Relic Hunter. And it looks like he's one of those eccentric billionaires who has to have the rarest of the rare. He's one of those hyper collectors. We'll learn more about him in the coming comics. It looks as though our bird friend is in trouble. Let's hope the Starbolts can get the Roc out of there. It sucks that the cannon was destroyed. I'd have liked to have drawn it. =)

Oh well. It looks like Jack is in his old armor for the time being. He'll be getting a newer uniform sooner or later. The armor does well in a punch and there wasn't enough time to make a new one. So, why not go for the classic look?

As far as Ice Phoenix goes, it looks like she isn't one to suffer fools or threats. Poor terrorist never saw what was coming.

See you next time for more action on Mount Damavand!

Starbolts #362: Culture Shock


Sorry this week's comic was a little late. Had some real life things to take care of. But, hey. It's better to be a day late than a dollar short. Or something like that. I don't know. Well, now we know that Jack and co are back at the station after that crazy adventure in the Outlands. But, it looks like Roc may be facing problems of his own!

It's going to be interesting to see how Idrak interacts with modern day Iran. She's gonna be getting a crash course in Middle East Affairs nest comic. That's for sure! At least she won't be alone. Next week, Jack, Knight and Idrak go check out Iran. But, the ice bird here is gonna have his hands full. What's going on? Eh, it's probably some jerks mining or something. We'll see soon enough.

In the mean time, I think I am going to take a look at Secret Empire #10 soon. If only for that panel where good Cap beats up bad Cap. Freud would have a field day in the Marvel Universe. I'm telling ya. After that, we'll see.

See ya next time!
