A political post. Sort of.

I try not to talk politics here.  This is a sci-fi superhero adventure and you likely come here for a pleasant escape.  I like to escape to the world we created, too.  The Millennium Federation sure seems like a nice place to live these days, where humanity got its act together and soars among the stars alongside the peoples of over a thousand distant worlds. But it's been hard to ignore this week.  The giant mess at the U.S. southern border has me anxious on some days and outraged on oth...

Let's Review: Danica and Dr. Brightman

It's time for another Let's Review blog entry, where I look back on pages from our Archive and talk about the process behind their creation or the stories surrounding their production! LET'S REVIEW:  DANICA & DR. BRIGHTMAN Danica and Dr. Brightman have had several memorable moments over the course of STAR POWER, but today I'm going to focus on their wordless scene at the conclusion of Star Power & Th...

Farewell, Project Wonderful.

Many people received an official notice from Project Wonderful this week, stating that the long-running ad service was shutting down.  I can't say I was really shocked by the announcement, but the reality of the situation hit home in a way that I was not expecting. In their statement to users, they cited the reasons for shutting down included a change in the way advertisements are viewed (and also blocked) to social media giants doing everything they can to keep readers on their platforms in...

Let's Review: Good Luck Ham

In today's "Let's Review" blog I'll look back at a page from our Archives, reflect on the process behind its creation, and tell any stories surrounding it!  These have been increasingly fun for me to do, so let's get right to today's peek back into our Archive! LET'S REVIEW: Good Luck Ham STAR POWER & THE SEARCH FOR BLACK HOLE BILL was a chance for me to slow down the pace of the comic and focus mo...

The Littlest Graduate.

My three-year-old son's first preschool graduation is tomorrow and I'm anticipating a full cute overload.  I may actually need medical attention over the weekend. He's not graduating from preschool entirely.  He's young enough that he'll be taking another year of preschool in the fall.  It's the following year's graduation that will see him move from preschool to kindergarten.  But that's another matter.  Tomorrow he's getting a little graduation cap (oh god), will be singing a little so...

Let's Review: Black Hole Bill's escape!

It's time for another Let's Review blog entry, where I look back on pages from our Archive and reflect on the thought process behind them.  Today I won't be talking about one page in particular, but the thought process behind an important scene from STAR POWER & THE SEARCH FOR BLACK HOLE BILL. Let's Review: BLACK HOLE BILL'S ESCAPE This story was going to revolve around Galactic Defense's attempts ...

Off to Con Carolinas!

Last weekend we were at Escape Velocity.  This weekend Garth and I are going to CON CAROLINAS for the first time.  Our convention schedule tends to get busier in the Spring and Summer months, and two shows in two consecutive weekends can be a common occurrence.  It can wreak havoc on our page production, but luckily we've been able to keep things rolling without an interruption. New conventions can be fun, too.  They almost always are.  Meeting...

Let's Review: GO GET 'EM, STAR POWER!

Here we are with another "Let's Review" blog post, where I look back at pages from our Archives and reflect on what was going on during their production. Let's Review: "GO GET 'EM, STAR POWER!" Reflecting on this page is simple.  It's not a complicated moment.  There weren't any difficulties or quirky stories when it came to writing it.  It's a pretty classic superhero moment, when the shining knight flies of...

Return to Escape Velocity!

This weekend Garth and I will be making our return to ESCAPE VELOCITY, a highly unique convention we had the pleasure to attend for its inaugural launch in 2016!  The only reason we didn't return last year was because of a scheduling conflict.  This year our schedules were free and they were kind enough to invite us back for their third year.  We're so happy to be coming back and hope you'll join us there! Escape Velocity can best be described a...

Let's Review: Rear View

Here's another "Let's Review" blog entry, where I look back at pages in our Archive and remember the stories regarding their creation! Back in The Ninth Wormhole, Black Hole Bill was doing some reconnaissance before attempting to kill Star Power.  He spies on her from afar and lets his gaze "admire" her.  It was a simple enough moment that I put way too much thought in to when describing the scene to Garth, and looking back it made for an equally interesting moment in our creative relations...
