Damn Write: Not feeling good!

Hey Gang!

So it seems I am sick with something. I don’t think it is covid but there is something wrong with me. Normally I do alright with my balance but lately, I am so thrown off by it I can’t go up and down the stairs in my house. I haven’t been down to the lowest level here and home base for a while now. Even when I tried to take the outside stairs to the basement door I ended up having problems. The Neighbors helped me out though and I was able to ask them about their cat who I have met and he came to the Home Base before winter kicked in. The little guy is named Joey. I’ll remember that when he gets running around the side yard again.

Joey!

I won’t get too much into bathroom issues but sometimes those can be an issue as well for me. It isn’t worth going into but sometimes I am stuck in the bathroom for a bit. Better out than in is the phrase I’ve heard before and This would be a good example of it. Can’t imagine having that in my GI tract can not be healthy, so maybe this is for the better. And that is probably the most I will say about that.

One thing that has happened during all this that is good is I noticed my Twitter was all lit up yesterday and taking a look I see that one of my books got a review! They may have given it some average scores but gave it positive credit for originality and for what I did creatively with my character kRaven.

That is a shot in the arm and a welcome sign during this time where I don’t feel so good! They seem to enjoy my first kRaven book. I should tell them there are more where that came from!

Starbolts #513: Breaking Down the Asteroid

Hail!

    And welcome to the first Starbolts comic of 2021! This year starts off with a bang as we continue exploring the origin of Angela’s phenomenal cosmic powers. Sam and I have also been showcasing each Agent and this week we see just how powerful Gregorio Arlandero is. His power level is easily up there with the likes of the Richard Rider Nova or even the Hal Jordan Green Lantern. Greg here is legendary and we’ll be exploring just how he got his powers and other events of his life next week when he and Angela visit Lu-Tem.

    Too bad Richie and Tenera can’t go and visit. It’s a rank based privilege and the two of them aren’t quite there yet. Gregorio has the rank of Centurion Prime. That means he can go to the temple and see if his daughter can break the seal. Will it work? Well, time will tell. Still, it is good to explore the Starbolts universe outside of Earth for a bit. We need to know more about Earth’s mightiest heroes and why they ARE Earth’s mightiest.

See ya next time for some cosmic backstory!

Thespian Talk #242 (Fuck the Nazi Bois)

Our first show of 2021 and, well… the title should tip you off as to what we’re talking about this go around, but for those who need a little extra push: Traitorous Trump supporters tried to take over the Capitol building in D.C. Yeah, there’s a lot of ranting going on here.

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!

Damn Write: Thank You, Mr. Huber

           

AEW and several workers posted this is tribute

   It was a shock to my system when word got out that Brodie Lee had died. Sure, I’m not a big AEW fan and think they have a lot to work on before they are the real opposition to WWE. but Lee was a big name and had a decent plotline going for him as the leader of the Dark Order. They make a good evil counterpart, even it is to the boss and his buddies.

           Brodie Lee was first a name I heard about on wrestling websites when he was on the Indy circuit. Back then he was more of a trucker type. He had a lot of buzz about him even then and there was a lot of talk when he got signed by the WWE. Even then they knew that he was cool.

           Eventually, he was turned into Luke Harper and although he was made into a Wyatt family follower they all didn’t change the nuances of the character, The even said he was “just a trucker type when he came into the family” he was then teamed up with Erick Rowan and they were a good team with that quirky rub to them that made them more fun to watch.

           He was then made Intercontinental champion and that’s when WWE lost the focus of the Story. It pretty much went downhill after that, He had the Bludgeon Brothers team with Rowen after that but of course, the WWE let that go and Harper was off to AEW and made the leader of the Dark Order. Interesting idea even if it was just Cody Rhodes and his buddies against a bunch of nobodies under masks and Brodie, I may not like AEW as much and they are like a lower rent company but with Huber, they got it right. His last match was that dog collar match with Cody and Brodie Lee for the TNT title, but the match was a good one.

           It has been announced that the show Wednesday night will be in tribute to him. Whether that actually happens or not or they do something stupid is beyond me at this point. Some have even said that one of his two sons will be involved. I have no idea about that but I hope THAT is true to some degree and not some cheap chance to get over a new heel or something and make the fans hate him. I have NEVER liked it when they did that. I didn’t care for ECW used to do that kind of thing, I didn’t like it when the WWE did that. And doing that kind of thing here would have me give up on AEW for good.

           But in the end, nothing will bring him back, and from what the wrestling world has posted online about what kind of person he was and all the good he did for everybody he worked with, that is a real loss to everybody. Thank you Mr. Huber for all the work that you did for us, the fans.

Starbolts #512: For the Heroes Who Have Everything

Hail! 

    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!
