I’ll be at Small Press Expo (SPX) this weekend, the 17 – 18th! I’ll have perhaps the last comics from my original print run of The End, as well as Mechanaflux. So come out to Bethesda, MD and take a look at tons of indie comics this weekend!
Once again I am attempting a Kickstarter. Check out the link (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1945380719/mechanaflux-4) and you can read all about the synopsis and the current issue. But, here it is also.
Issue #4 sees the siblings Cory and Maria (who were separated at birth to grow up in two different realms [Earth & Flux]) become increasingly hostile of each other. Will they be able to work together to save the world?
The sorceress, Darius, has lost her powers, and seeks to regain them, but at what cost? And to do so, she must learn to communicate with the very unusual spirit of her planet and convince it to break the rules.
Check out the rewards for the comic and check out some of the art. If you can help spread the comic around on your social media sites, then that would be an amazing help. Thanks for looking.
Murphy Media Memories is back with a new review. This time, it’s my quest to find a video game I played in elemntary school many years ago. At long last, I thinkI have found it. Is the Super Solver’s game Midnight Rescue, or OutNumbered, the game I am looking for? Plus, see a quick rundown on all the games in the series. This video also contains a quick playthrough of both Midnight Rescue and OutNumbered, showing you what all the game entails.
Remember the Arcade movie from 1994? No? Well it’s a good thing I’m here to fell you all about it. It’s about an evil Arcade machine (named ARACDE!) that will steal your soul if you lose it’s game while no one is looking. John Delancy is Arcade’s creator, Seth Green is in a bit part, and the main character must deal with her mother’s suicide while trying to warn her friends about the evil Arcade! Plus, I’ll tell you about the vast differences between the original cut and graphics of the film compared to the original.
Before I started Mechanaflux, I was working on this, my first 3 issue mini-series, Displacement, with Michelle Balze. Now, that comic, after many years, was submitted and accepted to Comixology. You can download the entire digital graphic novel for only $4.99!
What is Displacement? Well, read this picture that I have captured for posterity:
Most books for kids only do one thing; have you read the lines from beginning to end. Well, how are we going to keep those kids interested in books? We make them Interactive! Clue: Who Killed Mr. Body, was the first in a series of books that contained mini-mysteries that yo uread, and then you had to figure out which of the 6 characters did the crime. Can we figure out the mysteries that were originally intended for children?
When I started actually looking at Kickstarter for the first time, there were a ton of things to look through. I remember there being some 700 comic, film, and game projects (each!). I gravitated toward this comic book, The Shepherd, because it was a single comic book that told a complete story, had wonderful artwork, and was only $10.00.
The story was simple, but looked interesting: “Astrid, a young tribal shepherd who watches a flock of ghazals, must make some tough decisions when she comes upon a wounded Thanacht–a ferocious beast of legend thought extinct a thousand years ago.
Faced with the question of whether to help this predator which could easily hurt her or her flock, Astrid’s situation becomes even more complicated when a group of poachers show up looking for the beast, led by Rul, a hardened hunter obsessed with his search for the Thanacht.”
The above picture is what I got, along with a print by Joe Rubinstein. I supposedly also got got a 10 page digital comic prologue, but since I don’t own a single digital comic, I never picked that up. You can find the original Kickstarter here, but I never saw anything about buying digital versions in the future for those interested.
The 3rd anthology for Square City Comics is coming soon. This issue has a theme for every story within called, “The Cure”.
“What if you didn’t have to die? What if there was a cure of mortality? No aging. No death. Only life…everlasting.”
I have a short in it called Memory Drain, which was drawn by Crystal Rollins. Click the picture above or click here to learn more about it. You can also simply search “The Cure.” Please donate if you can and/or help spread the word for this amazing anthology series.
My next video is up. This list is my personal Top 10 Infectious Video Game Music! And when I say Top 10 Video Games, I really only mean Nintendo and Super Nintendo, as that’s all I grew up with. Yes, both Top 10 lists are all Pre-2000, like the format of my show. Delve into the songs that still auto-play in my brain.
I was mad I messed up the Battletoads / Double Dragon music in my video, as the Dark Queen stage is my favorite song and the one I. I also regret not putting in the Bubble Bobble song from when the first level starts. Anyway, enough put downs; I hope you enjoyed the video.
Mechanaflux #3 is now on Comixology! Is you’re following the webcomic, then you know Issue #3 / Chapter #3 has just ended. Well, now you can read the 3rd part now on Comixology. Will the Mecheers track down the amulet to Aria? And what powers does this half of the amulet posses? What will Maria and Cory do now that they know they are sibilings? Another full-color, 22 page issue awaits!
