Comic’ll be a lil’ late

…But I only have maybe an hour or so left on it, so I don’t think I’m going to stream it since it’d be a super short stream. But yeah, look for it hopefully before noon CST. Thanks guys!

Homages

So there’re two homages in this page today, the first to Skip Beat!, a shoujo manga I’ve completely fallen in love with. Kyoko basically uproots her life for this guy who wants to become a pop idol, and then when said guy gets his big break, he basically dumps her and tells her the whole time he’s been using her as a maid/confidence booster. So she vows to get revenge upon him by becoming an even bigger star than he is, and to do so she has to work her way up from the bottom. The thing I love most about this comic is that whenever Kyoko thinks about the guy, she gets these wonderfully creepy auras of revenge about her, that make me happy. Anyway, Panel 3 there is totally an ode to the wonderful Kyoko because I love her and she makes me happy.

Lourdes’ last line there is a more worksafe homage to McNulty from the very brilliant HBO show, The Wire (caution: video has f-bombs for those who are sensitive to that sort of thing). The Wire is probably my favorite TV show of all time, and I never thought I would be able to reference it in my comic….ever…given that it’s about cops and drug dealers and my comic is…not. But luckily, silly things break the genre barrier!

I’ve picked up Level 5’s Ni No Kuni and have played the first hour or so of it. It’s a collaboration between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli, so the game is absolutely gorgeous. The problem…(at least so far) is that the game is really made for babies. For example, the tutorial in the game actually explains how to use the d-pad to select things in the menu. The story, again, at least so far, isn’t very compelling–your basic “You’re the chosen one and you have to save everyone!” kind of thing, and I have to be honest, I’m a little disappointed thus far. But Brion says that it apparently gets kinda hardcore and complicated later on, so who knows. Like I said, I’ve only made it past like, the first major boss and into the first big town. So I’m not very far at all. I really, really, really want to like this game, guys!
