Starsearchers-- IN SPACE!

Look up into the sky, harder, harder. I think you’d like to get a telescope first--

Anyway, the Starsearchers is a group of space adventurers inspired by the original Star Trek, the Legion of Super-Heroes and, of course, Josie & and the Pussycats in Outer Space. It’s a magic formula, just don’t try it at home. It’s explosive and glamorous.

Starsearchers is a dramatic and delicious sci-fi / super-heroics adventure. Michael Lash got the inspiration when he was a kid through his comic books and TV shows and, years later, he joined artist Dean Lee to finally give form to this fun concept.

I won’t give away the story, but I’ll let you know that it gets started with lots of action, a battle in space and a very dramatic turning point for one of the new members of the Starsearchers.  You’ve been warned.  You might need some popcorn to read it.

There are plenty of different characters for you to like and root for them, they’re like 20 members! From the gelatinous K’zle, who has enhanced strength and can regrow his arms; to Starlette, who’s considered a goddess in some planets; Overthink, the twisted leader of the group; Bluu, who can manipulate gravity and has a fashion sense; and even Vamp, a bloodeater who just happens to drink blood, like some famous characters in other media minus the sobbing.  This is just a sample of characters, just like the Legion of Super-Heroes, they're quite a bunch.

This is a work of love and it’s entirely free in the Starsearchers fanpage in Facebook, so take a look and go directly to the photo section. Issues 1 to 5, plus a delightful Halloween Special are waiting for you, and remember to say “hello”, Michael and Dean are quite the welcoming hosts.  You might like hanging out a bit.

Oh My Gods! - The Relaunch

(click to enlarge)

Ages ago, the "Meteoro Owns the Universe" strip hit the webcomic-verse.  It lasted one magnificent strip and now it is back with a vengeance and a new co-star.  Now, as part of the "1.000 likes" celebration over at our Facebook fanpage , we're relaunching this glorious strip.

We hope you enjoy it.

1964: Lois Lane crosses over Grey’s Anatomy

Back back back in the day, waaaaaay back when Lois Lane was a multi-tasker and also worked as a nurse, she ran into a younger version of Dr. Sloan.  There must have been a spark between the famous reporter and Doctor McSteamy, but as we all know, dirty stuff only happened behind panels.  And yes, we all know Lois had her share of boyfriends.

We tried to get more information on this casual encounter, but both of them hung up their phones when we asked the question.  We sincerely think there was more to this than what they allowed us to know.

Poll: "If I was a supervillain, how would you call me?"

Over at Comics All Too Real's fanpage we asked this question and we got a lot of replies.  That's why, we, at CATR central, decided to run a poll as part of the "1.000 likes" celebration.  The winner will get the credits and hopefully, I'll get one of my artist friends to re-create this character under a villainous light, displaying proudly her new name.  Nothing fancy, but the winner would be able to link this post in his/her resumé (or not).

Get your own Poll!

Jade + Obsidian = Baron Ashura?

The formula is simple and you need to learn it well.  Put an ounce of Jade, add some Obsidian shadows, put it into the microwave under a green light and you get a meanie two-faced androgyne villain, not that there's anything wrong with being androgine, but when it relates with Baron Ashura everything's bad bad bad.  Two faces are always meaner than one and Jadesidian did know it fairly well.

Thing is there's a rumor that Baron Ashura is fighting the Justice League and the Justice Society from a secret spot in Japan.  Yes, we thought he/she was dead, but we all know how it is with the revolving door that is death.  Could he/she be planning some more gender attacks against the Leagues?  Who would be put into the blender next time?  Guy Gardner and Power Girl?  Now, that would be something worth watching.

Stay tuned as things get androgynous--
