Starbolts #446: Operation Odanta


Wow. You are definitely not prepared for feels this week as we have a comic wrought with emotions. Firaxil's parents, Nisson and Dendra Odanta, are back in the land of the living. Eh, technically those two were never really dead. How about "The land of the defrosted". That makes more sense. Be sure to note the body language in this week's comic. Poor Firaxil is all over the place in terms of emotions. Poor guy. Then we have Crystal. She was upset when her parents were mentioned and that sparked her comment later in the comic. She basically stole Manta's line. I think she'll get a free pass from her boss for that one.

Crystal and Sara are just beginning to deal with the ramifications of everything. They'll be getting medals of honor for sure. But, I think the Odantas will have something to say about those two. It's going to be a long road. Will they be accepting of those two? How will they react to Firaxil being engaged to the daughter of the people who did this to them?

There's a lot for them to take in. Look for some serious drama in the coming comics! See ya next time!

Starbolts #445: The Final Fate of Terra Nova


Finally Terra Nova has come to an end and Elisabeth King was unceremoniously carried out of her own building! That has gotta suck for her. Well, it's what she deserved after getting a shield thrown at her. Yes, that's a Captain America reference. When Wildcat throws her mighty shield....

Eh, it doesn't have a good ring to it. Never mind. At least the team is back together again and now they can concentrate on bringing the Odantas back. Look for their revival soon. And now that Crystal has a minute to breathe, look for her to come to grips with the magnitude of what just happened. I mean...she beat Terra Nova! That is awesome! Next week we begin Operation Odanta!

See ya then!

Starbolts #444: Cat and Mouse


We're getting close to the end of Terra Nova here as Crystal and Elisabeth King prepare to face off. However, it looks like she's more interested in talking about the shield on the wall. Keep talking, lady. You're gonna eat that shield if you aren't careful.

The comic took a while as I wasn't sure how to best show the stairwell. It's an okay design. Could have been a little better, I think.

Anyway, enough about that. We got a fight next week!

Oh, and the guys that Draco torched? They dead. So very dead.

See ya next time!

Starbolts #443: Shenra's Revenge


This week we learn a bit more about Shenra's past. She was originally going to assassinate Demonstorm around the same time Sara was kidnapped. So now Gladstone has TWO kidnappings under his belt. What is it with that guy and kidnapping women? He's got serious issues. Well, now we know that Emil was the man responsible for brainwashing the metahumans under Terra Nova's control AND Shenra herself. Naturally, she didn't take the news well and the guy lost his head. Literally.

As far as Firaxil's parents go, we'll be seeing them soon. The "gold" team has been sent on a rescue mission while the "blue" team is in the tower. This is a reference to how the X-Men were split in the early '90s. And it's also a reference to how the Avengers were once split into West and East coast divisions.

This comic also showed practically every Starbolt. That was pretty amazing. I haven't had the chance to put everyone in one comic in a while. Just missing Anya. She's just off being a spy somewhere. =)

I do like that brief conversation Marcus had with Tanis. Expect more from those two in the near future. Shenra has some things to work out and has a mad hatred for the son of Demonstorm. I don't think they'll be friends any time soon. The speedster, meanwhile, is just not having it with him. He's nervous and wants to see Terra Nova end.

It will end. And soon. See ya next time!!
