    'Static Shock': Worthy of the Silver Screen?

    'Static Shock': Worthy of the Silver Screen?

    Soooooo... I'm a Static Shock stan. There... I said it. I've read a lot of comics and watched a ton of DC-based animated shows over the years, but Static's presence in DC via the Dakotaverse represents a specific type of diversity that DC really hadn't had until it absorbed those characters via a merger with Milestone Comics. We all know that the Static Shock character eventually made its way to the consciousness of DC comic heads everywhere over time. Static even had a pretty dope Saturday morning cartoon hustle going, where it quickly became a cult-classic among a generation of young viewers that were excited to see a bonafide superhero that looked like they did.

    'Dina' Graphic Novel Review

    'Dina' Graphic Novel Review

    DINA: Fulfilling the Dream started off as a personal project over 10 years ago. I had just read an illustrated version of The Hobbit, and loved the idea of making illustrations for a book, so started making drawings for one of my favorite sci-fi novels. Once I had started creating characters and settings, etc. I decided I didn't want to just illustrate someone else's story, I wanted to illustrate my own story. I didn't consider myself a writer back then, but I started getting ideas for a story. One scene led to another, then another etc. Much of my inspiration came from my own personal experiences, along with Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Darkover, X-Men, and many other iconic sci-fi series, movies, and books. I wanted to create a new world, and I wanted it to be original. Not only did I want the story to be an interpretation of one possible future, but I also wanted readers to feel what some of the characters were experiencing.

    'Homestuck' Possible Arcs: #1 Feferi Peixes

    'Homestuck' Possible Arcs: #1 Feferi Peixes

    Feferi Peixes was a great but short lived troll in Andrew Hussie's Homestuck. She was the highest tiered troll in the Hemospectrum, a hierarchy of 12 blood colors, burgundy being the lowest and fuchsia being the highest. As heiress of the Alternian throne and caretaker of Gl'bgolyb, a massive creature capable of killing the whole trollian race, she has a lot of pressure on her shoulders. She was also a Derse Dreamer and a Witch of Life. In this article I will be explaining possible (BUT NOT CANON) outcomes of her development and how it should've, (in my opinion) gone. SPOILERS FOR Homestuck BEYOND THIS PARAGRAPH! Let us begin.

    'Iron Ladies'

    'Iron Ladies'

    I'm pretty choosy when it comes to reading manga and would probably class myself in the casual fan category. That said I will probably read anything if I like the look of it and have chosen independent artist's material on a number of occasions. Such work is categorised as "Dojinshi" and personally I feel it's good enough to rival any big publishing company. I picked up this hidden gem on the website MangaKakalot and was pleasantly surprised with what I found. Published by author Bai Chen Guang and 'The Iron Scales Group, Iron Ladies tells the futuristic story of a university graduate who is recruited by an Intergalactic paramilitary group.
