Starbolts #608: The Hidden Snake

Hail!

Two new story arcs are about to begin this week! One will see the return of Cobra aka Richard Smythe and the other will see Sara on her journey to becoming whole once again. The question is how did she get fragmented to begin with? Why is she unable to summon a shield when her twin sister can? These are all very good questions and they will be answered in time. She's going to have one hell of a journey coming up and I think she'll be better for it. You might even say she'll come out of it a new woman. Shh. Spoilers.

As for the Snake, I was tempted to have him hang out in the last panel. But, at this time he's a little busy trying to find Stan Whitefox's library. He needs something in there that might help him with his small ghost problem. What could he be planning? He was observing everyone who has a connection to Terra Nova except Sara. So, it's really curious what he's up to. We know he wants to rid himself of the ghosts of Soldier Six. What will he do to achieve those goals? The plot is thickening. More shall be revealed next time.

See ya then!

OH! And I should note. No. Crystal and Marcus did not go off to be intimate. Cobra just assumes the worst of people because he’s a jerk.

Starbolts #607: The Children’s Legacy

Hail!

Looks like Jack is well on his way to becoming the next Iron Eagle. However, something, or rather, someone is lurking in the shadows. The man in the last panel is Richard Smythe aka Cobra and he was last seen way back in Starbolts #455!  How did he get from Australia to America? Is it really him or is it just a hologram? Could he be using some top secret Terra Nova technology that somehow cloaks him? These are all great questions and I'll definitely be answering them. For now we must wonder what he wants and you know full well that Jack is not going to be happy to see him again.

Let's recap the Snake's crimes.
  1. When he was a member of Soldier Six, he took Sara and Crystal away from the lab before the embryos were to be implanted into Elaine Dastara. They were instead implanted into members of Terra Nova.
  2. He went along with Terra Nova’s plant to lure Soldier Six to an island in the South Pacific and one by one he killed various members of the team. When faced with Jack, he set off a bomb destroying the island and seemingly killing him in the process. He was brought back to life by Demonstorm and eventually placed in a cloned body.

The list goes on and on. Sufficed it to say Richard is a bad monkey.

You almost have to feel sorry for Richard. He’s going to have to deal with three Starbolts very, very soon. Two of them are void witches who rightfully blame him for the trauma they endured and one of them is a fighting mad former friend with an axe to grind. To think the seeds were planted for him taking the mantle exactly one hundred comics ago!

Jack is going to be one hell of an Iron Eagle and Terra Nova’s worst nightmare will be realized!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #606: Dude Date

Hail!


There’s nothing quite like having two guys talk about life, the universe and everything and then proceeding to beat each other up in a Street Fighter-like game, right? The friendship Firaxil and Marcus have go back to when they were teens and they are still best friends to this day. Firaxil wanted to know why Marcus suddenly felt better about everything and he gave him the details. Marcus and Crystal tethered and no it’s not just a sex thing. The tethering allowed them to see their love as I’ve explained in other comics. Here’s hoping Firaxil and Sara do it as well. It might alleviate the doubts our Inobe friend might have about his wife.

As far as Marcus and Crystal goes, the sexy times are usually on her terms given her history. He’s also not the type to force himself on her. More on that next time as we move to the ladies talking about everything. Sara and Crystal are long overdue for their own “dude date” don’t ya think?

See ya next time!

Starbolts #605: The Haunted Mansion

Hail!

    I decided to take a different approach with this year’s Halloween comic. Instead of using the usual ghosts from Soldier Six, I thought I would use a different horror in the form of a demon. Sure the lesser demon was dealt with rather quickly. But, if you think about it, the doubts Firaxil and Marcus have could also be their own inner demons. Thankfully, both were dealt with by their mentor/father-in-law, Stan. He’s been the Starbolts’ mentor since they were teens and it looks like they will always need his guidance. 

    The pictures in the hallway have a bit of an Easter egg in them. I included a picture of Charlotte, the fallen member of the Agents of S.T.A.R.. I originally was going to have her be the ghost in this week’s comic and I was going to have her interact with the hologram of Pegasus. The problem was that I didn’t know how to best end it. That and I kind of wondered why she’d be at the mansion. There were just too many questions. So, Sam and I did an extensive rewrite of this week’s comic and I think it turned out good. 

    I do like how Marcus is well on his way to proposing to Crystal and I liked his banter with Firaxil. Look for more of that soon. I like having the two team up! It’s fun! I hope everyone has a great Halloween! 

See ya next time and Happy Halloween….WHATEVER YOU ARE! MWAHAHAHA!

Starbolts #604: Instant Replays

Hail!

    This week’s comic has Valentina reacting to the recently discovered footage of her being intimate with Sara/Sola. Naturally, she was a little freaked out because of the implications involved and now some secrets have been revealed. The first, of course, being that she was initially attracted to Crystal many years ago. Don’t bother digging into the archives to find evidence of that because those feelings fell by the wayside over time! Though, you could argue that she was trying to keep her safe from Tornado in Starbolts #308 when Crystal infiltrated the Legion’s headquarters and in Starbolts #348 and Starbolts #349 when she finally saw the light.

    Val has a very complicated relationship with the daughters of Stan and Andrea. That’s for sure. Crystal is obviously accepting of her, her sister and everyone. Look at who she has has friends! The Starbolts are a very diverse group of people. They learned from the best and I think Stan and Andrea themselves would be accepting of everything.

    We probably won’t see Sara talking to her parents about everything as next week we have our annual Halloween comic. Rest assured, they will be talking about the situation! It’d be very awkward indeed! The video will not get leaked and I think several security measures would be put in place.

    At least the worst is over. Now it’s time to get ready for our Halloween comic! See ya next time!

Starbolts #603: Interview with a Whitefox

Hail!

    It looks like Holly just discovered something a little uhh….spicy in the files of Terra Nova this week! I get the feeling this newly discovered footage will push Val into talking to Sara sooner rather than later. I don’t think they’re going to be able to put this off for much longer! I think you might agree! They are going to have to confront their past relationship even if that relationship was technically with Sara’s Sola personality. Would that even be a consenting relationship in that case? I think that’s up for philosophers to decide. Or at least Angela. She can sort through that mess!

    At any rate, it looks like Valentina got herself a job working as a paralegal for the academy. This will mean big things for her and her life will ultimately turn around. Next, I suppose Simon will have to find some work. He could work as a techie. However, with his ability to duplicate himself he would put all of the techies the Academy has out of a job. He’ll find something, I’m sure.

    It does look like three former members of the Legion are doing well for themselves now. We have Simon, Val and Holly in one place. Perhaps they can advocate for Granite’s freedom? I’m sure they can. Who knows? Perhaps there’s even footage Holly found that could exonerate him and not just footage of Sola and Val. There’s probably footage of the other members of the Legion, too! Some footage might help their case. Some might not. We will have to see.

See ya next time!
