N.U.S. January 28, 2006

Whelp, the comic is up on time. Whoopy! I am kinda tired right I'm not gonna post too much. This comic is a testimate to how much I'm enjoying updating lately. Thing is, this one didn't really come together until just a few hours before it had to go up, but hey, I pushed through it and made it work. It's not my favorite one of all time, but it's definately not the worst one either.

Well, lets just keep it rolling. There's not a lot else to note, except I am finally on Nintendo Wi-Fi with my DS -totally badass, I might add- and I like racing against people even though I am not that good yet. So if you want to race someone who has little to no chance of beating you...head on over to the FORUMS and grabby me friend code.

Lets watch, won't we?

N.U.S. January 24, 2006

Well, here's another comic. I wish I could figure out how to make them update on time instead of a day late, but I guess I'll survive.

Not really in the mood to write much. I poured a lot of it into my other _personal_ blog.

But the comic turned out well, and I am happy about it because for MONTHS I have been waiting for this particular comic. Why? Because it means that the fight sequence is over and I can get onto more important things. Those things you'll be seeing on Saturday....well, some of them, not all of them.

Lets see...what else. Oh yeah! One of my favorite web comics The Legend of Link has finally updated again. The author, a friend of mine, had a stroke and has been unable to draw for months. He's finally gotten good enough to update again which makes me very happy. Please check it out (if you like Zelda then you should enjoy it).

In other news, I have once again found myself being a nice girl and having nothing to show for it. So I have re-entered ultra bitter mode, viciously attacking all who come to close. It's kinda fun because it ensures my solitude for a few days, enough time to recover. So yeah.

Oh yeah, one other thing. I have been playing City of Heroes again. If you ever find yourself on the "Protector" server, watch out for a familiar pink-haired gamoid. Feel free to give me a shout should you run into me.

Metal is where metal shouldn't be.

Holy. Friggin. Crap.

This update nearly killed me. I was so stuck on re-writes re-writes. All the way up until 9:00 p.m. last night, I was retooling the thing. In all honesty, I am not really happy with it. However, it does fill in a small pothole that would have otherwise made some people scratch thier heads and say; huh? Also, it was a new sampling of layout which I kinda like, kinda don't. We'll see where it goes in the future. But I'll tell you, limiting myself as I do with making this can often present more of a challenge than I intend. I sometimes wonder if the comic would be better if I didn't. Of course, that's foolishness (and even if it would be, it's a HELLA lot more work. So far, only one comic has ever spanned more than one page, the OCAD one).

I opened up a personal blog. I can't imagine why anyone would want to visit it, but just in case, I'll provide you the URL.


In other news:

Not much to report here. Still awaiting my 360, which is now beginning to taunt me with it's 'not-hereness'. It's one thing to want to buy one, I can justify not having it by not being able to afford it. But when someone tells you you're getting a free PREMIUM one...well, I know why I don't have it, but it's still makin me antsy. Either way, the people at Gamer Graffix have impressed me so far with thier products (and their fine taste in art) so I look forward to the outcome of this.

It's late, so I'm done. See you on Tuesday Newscastians. Oh, and stay tuned for Adam West and Satan with a recipe for Walnut Katsup.

N.U.S. January 17, 2006

Well, it's been a long haul but I'm finally back. Today's strip is a fan-comic for three reasons. The first is that since #55 was a day late, it ruined my whole weekend work schedule so I didn't have time to do #56. My new schedule at Rhino hasn't helped either, as my new boss has decided that I like to work at random times instead of on a somewhat consistant basis. The second reason is that Alyssa, the fan/friend who submitted this to me, did so some time ago. I had been saving it for when I was sick but thanks to my extended hiatus...well, I thought it was a good time to use it. The last reason is that seeing as it was just her birthday (also, a happy birthday wish to Fighter Chick Cam, maker of Ninja Stickman comics) it seemed as appropriate a time as any to bring it out.

In other Newscast related news, My Gallery Page is finally up (okay, i copped out and just opened a Deviant Art page) but still, it's all cool Newscast art. Seeing as that is the case, I suggest you click on over and see what you can see. In case my Dreamweaver screwed up again, here's the URL:

Also, thanks to Moero and Terd Burgler last night, I came up with some great new content for the site. Hopefully, it shall extend the Newscast Universe somewhat, and give you guys a little more insight into the comic at the same time.

Two more things:

#1. There is some exciting news for Kioko fans in the retail world. However, I can't tell you too many details yet. I'll keep you up-to-date though. Hint: It's good news for video game players.

#2. Also on the game front, I'm looking for someone who knows how to make games in FLASH help me with a little project I am working on. If you're interested and want to show me what you can do, shoot me an email:

In personal news:

I've been trying to find some time to finish Fatal Frame, yeah, I know I'm behind the times. But Frame 2 was just so bad, I didn't think the first could be good. Also, Phoenix Wright is still friggin fun on my brand-new candy pink Nintendo DS system. BTW, I want to race people in Mario Kart DS. If you want my friend code, shoot on over to the FORUMS and pick it up.

Also, I won an Xbox 360. I've been jammin on Dead or Alive 4 at work and just love it, so I'm excited to get one of my own. It's still kinda early on to BUY one in my opinion, but free systems I'll take anytime, no matter how reprehensible I find it. Not that I find the 360 reprehensible, but if someone say, gave me a PSP....Well, anyway, until Saturday y'all.

-See you on Sestis!
