Starbolts 2020 Vision


It's the annual end of the year comic and I thought I would mix it up a bit. The first sixteen panels or so are not really in canon. However, the rest of the comic is very much IN canon. As you can probably guess, the next storyline will involve time travel. Young Sirak has traveled back in time and is on a mission. What could his mission be? Who does he sense. What's going on? We'll find out in time. All I can say is that there is a time monster on the loose. Can three generations of superheroes stop him? I hope so!

2019 has certainly been a rough year for our heroes. Crystal and Sara found out that they were blood Whitefoxes this whole time. Firaxil found his parents. So much stuff happened that it would have been hard to recap everything in just one comic. Either way, we have the future to look forward to. And it is going to be amazing!

Look for this storyline to begin early next year!

As far as this comic goes, I wanted to include how the Agents got together. Stan, Andrea and Richard met on the roof of the Department of Metahuman Affairs building. The rest as they say is history. They really did end up making a great team.

Of course with the Whitefoxes meeting, all I can think of is Stan saying to Jack, Sara and Crystal "And that, children, was how I met your mother."

This comic was definitely fun to do and I look forward to showing everyone what we have planned for next year. Stay tuned and Happy New Year!

Starbolts #461: The Gift


This year I bring you a different kind of holiday comic. Like the Halloween one, this one is in canon. It is holiday themed because Jenna has received a very important gift. Time. She wants to start a family with M'anta and sadly has to wait a while before she can actually do so. You can also say that she has a lot more in common with Sara now. Remember back in Starbolts #275 when she fought Jade Skull? Well, that ending wasn't as happy as we thought. Jenna still has a few lingering aftereffects of her transformation into her torch form. Sara used to have similar troubles with her solar powers back in the day.

Speaking of back in the day, I show off yet another glimpse into the Agents' past with Richard Dastara's armory. Richard used to be the hero known as Cobalt. His armors made him an important member of the team. I have been showing a lot of the old Agents recently. This isn't a coincidence. It's all leading somewhere. It will all come together in the next storyline! Wait and see what Sam and I have up our sleeves!

The past, present and future are going to collide!

Starbolts #460: Earth's Mightiest


Wow! We have a lot going on this week don't we? The first thing we should talk about is Clive and Stan's conversation. I never really explored what Stan can do. He has the ability to tap into a mystical source and use its energies. Sam and I figure it's the reason why Sara can teleport. Maybe it's also the reason Crystal can turn invisible and why she has claws? Hmm. Makes you think doesn't it? Still, this is the last we are going to see of Clive for the foreseeable future. He'll be rotting in prison for a long time and I wanted to have Stan have it out with the mad scientist who stole his children. There's certainly a lot of tension here!

Next we have Crystal. She has become the woman the Starbolts all knew she could become someday. Her parents' knew it. She is ready for the next great step in her life as a superhero. What will happen? That remains to be seen. Her new middle name comes from the Cherokee "She who brings happiness". That was going to be Crystal's name if she had been raised by Stan and Andrea. Stan belongs to the Cherokee nation and I thought that name really fit her.

Sara gets a new middle name as well. Her middle name is Carter. She takes her name from the first Lady Liberty, Linda Carter. As you can imagine, the girls' birth certificates were changed to reflect what their names were supposed to be. They decided to keep Sara and Crystal as names for convenience. The middle names, though, now give them a closer connection to their families and in Crystal's case, her heritage.

Really wish I could have found the Cherokee word for fox, though. That would have suited Crystal!

Now, then. What about Jenna? Will she give up her mantle as Lady Liberty to Crystal? Find out next time!!

Starbolts #459: The Kids Are Alright


Beginning a December to remember this week as the Whitefox children react to the news from a few weeks ago. If you recall, last comic it was revealed that Sara and Crystal were blood Whitefoxes the whole time. Now that's an early Christmas present for the family! The dust settled and now everyone has to deal with the news in their own way.

Funnily enough, this week's comic presents the kids' bits in reverse birth order. Jack was born first, naturally. Then came Sara. Crystal, of course, is the baby of the family. She's the youngest and most precocious out of the three of them. I can't wait for the day when the three of them confront Cobra over his misdeeds. It'll happen sooner or later. Don't you worry!

It also looks like the three of them have made significant steps with their significant others. Crystal is no longer afraid to have children. Sara's sure about bringing a child into this world. Jack admitted his love for Anya. I think the parents would be proud of their kids. They are in fact going to be alright.

And to make sure it stays that way.....

Well, tune in next week for that comic!

See ya next time!
