Starbolts 2021 Preview


    The year 2020 is coming to a close and in the comic we end it how we began way back in January. Seems like a lifetime ago doesn't it? New Year's Eve 2019 was when we had the time traveling Starbolts cameo before crashing Firaxil and Sara's wedding the next month. So, it seems fitting that we see them once again. However, they aren't disrupting time and space. No, they're doing their own thing and moving forward.

    It seems that the battle of the two armies became something of a legend in the future. Why wouldn't it? Three generations of superheroes fought to save time itself from a man they once considered a friend. It's the stuff of legends! MJ, Jacob and Dendra are now going on their next adventure with meeting their great-grandparents just like how their parents did decades earlier. Their adventure, of course, will be different because those three aren't nearly as broken as Crystal, Jack and Sara.

     I hope I highlighted my own subtle jabs at 2020 enough with Crimson Justice's comments. The lizard is basically the voice of the real world audience. I hear ya, CJ. I hear ya.

    So, what's coming up next year? Well, we have  to wrap up what's going on with Angela. Then we'll have an adventure with Firaxil on New Inobus. Then some New Starbolts fun. And finally we'll get another new storyline! That should be amazing. Hold on, though. Who are those two in the last couple panels?

I'm afraid you're gonna have to wait and see! See ya next time!

Starbolts #512: For the Heroes Who Have Everything


    Happy holidays from all of us at Starbolt Productions! I know this year hasn't been the best in terms of real life events and I hope that the comic has helped in some way during the most depressing days of the ongoing pandemic. Here's hoping that there is light at the end of the tunnel, soon!

    So, this year's Christmas comic is an interesting one in that we have Idrak el Bashir aka Ice Phoenix helping Santa by interviewing the Starbolts and seeing what they want for the holiday. As expected, most of them already have what they want most in the world. Though they all have differing personalities, I don't think they'll be the greedy types. I'm sure they'll get whatever they desired most in this world. They did much good this year from stopping a terrorist organization to even traveling through time! Where will they go from here? We'll find out soon enough!

    This comic was fun to make and I made it a point to show almost everyone out of uniform. Angela and Firaxil are with the Centurions and we'll be seeing more of her story starting next year. So, be on the look out for that! I hope everyone reading this has a great Christmas and a happy holiday season!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #511: A Cosmic Shutdown


    Gregorio and Ricardo have arrived at the Centurion's base in the hopes of finding Angela. My favorite thing about this week's comic was having the Arlanderos all talking on the line. You can't help but have them be concerned for Angela's safety after Xelensa cut off the phone conversation between her and Kevin. If they had just let her talk, this probably wouldn't have happened. This is why you need to but out of peoples' lives! 

    Well, what's done is done. Now Gregorio is on the asteroid and there's going to be some hell to pay! We'll find out what he is going to do early next year because next week we have our annual holiday comic! Be on the look out for that! 

See ya then!

Starbolts #510: Racing Angel



This week Angela has a confrontation with her chaperone, Xelensa. But, it turns out the table has been turned as our heroine has to deal with Centurion Zero. What does he have in store for her? What could such a small, cute, hedgehog-like creature want from Angela? We'll find out soon enough. I just hope someone will show up to rescue her! This cannot end well!

Meanwhile, I created two new aliens. One of them is a rock-like alien and the other, I think, is plant-like. Not sure what their story is. But, I bet it's a good one. I can probably think up a backstory for those two sooner or later. It's not that important right now because we have bigger issues to deal with. Angela has to face the Centurions alone. But, she does have help. Tenera is a telepathic scream away. Surely she can save the day!

We'll see next week!

Starbolts #509: Interview with the Centurions


    Firaxil and Angela have finally arrived at the Centurion base where she will learn to have better control over her powers and abilities. It also looks like her reputation preceded her since her father was also an illustrious Centurion back in the day. I'm sure things will be fine. But, she is going to have to deal with a very puritanical chaperone. Things are going to be easy for her since she is going to want to talk to her boyfriend, Kevin.  I'm sure there are ways to circumvent the restrictions she had placed on her. After all, she did use Tenera's laptop!

    Speaking of Tenera, she is actually the first Centurion I presented in the comic. She is also one of the first Aquan heroes outside of M'anta, Shrall and Aquita to help save Aquarius. Other aliens present in this week's comic include a Setleth and a Dovianni. Doviannis haven't been seen in a while. But, here's one of them far from home. I haven't really come up with names for the other races, yet. It's a start, though. I would be careful of that Leonid Centurion =).

    Angela has much to learn from the Centurions and she is ready to do her best. We'll be spending a couple comics here with her and then it's onto the Christmas comic. Stay tuned!

See ya next time!
