Tensions are mounting this week as Crystal fights to send a message to the Starbolts! She’s trapped on a mysterious floating island with the world’s deadliest villains! Sure she sliced some of them with her diamond-like cat claws. But, she can’t stay there forever now can she! Hopefully, help will arrive in time.
This comic was a lot of fun to write as I made references to past comics. Check it out:
The first one is from Starbolts #125. That comic had a flashback to when Cobra killed Scarlett, a member of Soldier Six. The baddie just doesn’t seem to like gingers. Notice everyone in that panel’s mouths dropped? I bet they were thinking “Oh, snap!” I just needed to have Crystal twist the knife in there just a little bit. She knows all about Scarlett and what Cobra did to her. Expect her to reference it a wee bit more in the coming comics. She may be stuck on D.I.S.C.O.R.D. Island for a while. But, she is NOT going to make it easy for the Legion.
The next reference comes a lot later in Starbolts #273. That was when Dreadwing restored Spectra’s speaking ability to her. Of course batboy is going to twist the knife in Crystal since Doctor Harris, an Agent of S.T.A.R., could not heal her. There’s a lot of twisting and turning of knives to be had this week, huh?
Next week promises to have a bit more drama as Marcus reads the file Crystal sent and plays keep-away with Umbra. I have a few possible names for next week’s comic. I’m thinking “For the Starbolts’ eyes only”. But, first we’re going to see Crystal take on Princess. Pretty sure this cat has still got her claws.
Speaking of claws, I will be changing her code name soon to something a lot more fitting. Get ready for…The Wildcat!
