Hey all,

Where to start? Well, first off, sorry about Saturday. Small bit of artists' block. Man, what I wouldn't give to be in a situation where if I didn't update because of something stupid like that I might not loose readers. Ah well.

First news: There's a new t-shirt avaliable in the STORE so if you've been looking for something new in the way of Newscast apparel, sink your teeth into the Bounty Hunter shirt! And yes, I know the store sucks, I would like to redesign it but in case anyone forgot, I suck at web design. If you know of something I could run besides CafePress, please let me know.

Secondly, something I forgot to mention last week. In addition to this site with the Computones, I have recently come into posession of a book: How to Draw Manga: Computones. This is a book of how-to with tones, AND a CD full of digital ones for manga. I mention this, because I am currently using the CD and it's a really good product.

Um...not much else I am afraid. I'll be adding the DOWNLOADS page sometime this week, I hope...unfortunately, I just haven't had much time to make stuff. But I have some things, so up it will go.


Beat Teen Titans on the GC, full review here. Also, another episode of Taymation TV is up. Still not sure what I'm sending to my Guest Comic makers, but I'm thinking on it. Suggestions of what you would like would me nice....you know who you are.

They totally have a room just full of Ensign Ricky's, waiting to be killed in the line of duty.

Oh, P.S.
Happy Memorial Day *small trumpet fanfare*

Hello folks,

Well, I'm finally back. I mean, I was back from E3 last week, but it's always hard to jump back into a schedule after a vacation, especially when you have videos to edit and swag to ship around the country. As for Newscast this week, I actually like it a lot more than I thought I would. It's been a pain in the butt to layout. But I'm glad to do it, because I think it's really helping me improve.


There isn't much really. Except a little tidbit about the possibility of another Newscast Live! event. At the moment, the details are sketchy, and I'm not even going into the possibility of stuff for sale (besides shirts) but I'll keep you updated.

Also, I think I fixed last Thursday's guest comic, check it out. If not, I'll be posting it in the 'Fan Art' section soon. Also, watch over the next few days for the Downloads section to open. In the meantime, head on over to the forums page and grab the 'Author' Nintendo Wii desktop background. You too can harness the power of Wii!

Well, I'm tired so it's off to bed. Enjoy the comic folks!

By the time you read this, I'll probably be on the road to E3. I would like to thank Stuart Packrell, Fighter Chick Cam, and DoomHat for guest comics. I still haven't decided what you're getting, but I promise it'll be something cool. As a reminder, the comic update schedule this week will be TUESDAY, THURSDAY, and SATURDAY. Please enjoy the great GuestComics.

I'll make this one brief because I am too tired to type a lot...First off, sorry about Tuesday. Nienna is capable of some very interesting acrobatic feats which I was not wholly prepared to draw AND layout. Compromises were made, and in the end...I spend an extra week working on a page. I'm sorry, but quality is more important to me that making sure something crappy is up just because it's a Tuesday. However, it will be up Saturday. Yay.

On to more pressing matters, as you no doubt read up above, Newscast is seeking guest comics. Why? Well, first off, I do have a few from Fighter Chick Cam, but the thing is, I like seeing what other people can do (cause I don't get much fan art these days) and I think having someone who predominantly does all your guest comics might shy others off. Rest assured, Fighter Chick Cam's short Nienna story WILL be up next week, but I'm hoping if I get enough comics, I'll have a new one every day of the week. There will be at least three (FCC) so there will be a


And if I get any others, the schedule will change again. PLEASE send me some. I like to know there are fans out there. Also, you'll get something. I don't know what yet, maybe a desktop background, maybe some original artwork. Maybe something else entirely. I dunno, but I'm willing to bribe you for guest comics.

I'll be adding a new section to Newscast sometime shortly after my return from E3, something I realize I should have had for awhile....a DOWNLOADS page. Here you can DL icons, backgrounds, XBOX360 faceplate designs (for this loverly NYKO thing I bought yesterday), and maybe even cursors and avatars. I dunno for sure, we'll see.

If you haven't joined the Gamers Guild on the FORUMS, you might want to. Because when Tay, Stuart and I return from E3, we'll be answering questions from boardy users and also loading some special videos (we hope) from the inside. Most likely, ones from the Nintendo Press Conference and the show floor of E3 itself. Watch for them.

Any questions, feel free to email me.

I figure he'll get bored and die, THEN I WILL RULE!
