Hello to all my wonderful readers! For all of you who celebrate it religious or secular, Merry Christmas! For all of you who don’t, I hope you’re safe and happy at home surrounded by friends and family. I’d say a bit about a roaring fire, hot chocolate and roasting chestnuts, but it’s going to be in the 70’s here and I’m going to be grilling, so what do I know about ringing in the holiday.
I know the blogs have been few and far between as I finish up Soul Battery 2, but things will change for the better in the New Year. I hope to make the site the books and the game my full-time job by 2017, which means I’ll have more time to do things right.
Speaking of both the holiday and the new year, I have a small request: Descendants #92 is going to be an anthology of short homages to different comic books styles with the Descendants characters as the unwilling stars.
I already plan to have one for the works of Jack ‘King’ Kirby and shonen manga, but I then thought it might be fun to make this a little interactive and ask you, the reader what kind of homages you’re like to see. It doesn’t have to be superhero comics, but just let me know on the forum or in the comments what you’d like to see.
Or you can vote for ideas I already had:
- Another poke at 90’s antiheroes
- 1940’s crime comics.
- 1960’s romance comics
- Pulp radio drama
- The Animated Series (in the spirit of the DC Animated Universe)
- Newspaper comic strips
- World War II comics
