N.U.S. August 30, 2006

Hey all,

Goddess...I'm so very tired. Not physically, but emotionally. If I can survive this week, then things might change...I hope. Well, I like this comic well enough, the layout isn't stellar, but that first panel I like.

I sort of finished Dead Rising. You can read my full review here.

I'm almost broke. It hurts...

N.U.S. August 24, 2006

Hey all,

First off, let me apologize. Due to several blackouts in a row the other night, I was unable to finish the comic. I suppose it's also my fault, because well...I just can't pull myself away from Dead Rising. It's so frustrating, and yet so addicting. Making a review for it is gonna be quite difficult indeed.

As for this comic, not much to say. I hope everyone gets know, tin-foil in the microwave and all that. I do like the way it turned out though. I was having one hell of a time with that first panel.


Work for Newscast Live: Redux continues. I'll be posting a page for it soon, much like the page for the first Newscast Live. So far, I've got a couple things lined up to sell. The book obviously, some desktop standees, shirts, posters and mini-posters. Enjoy that, cause I'm trying to keep prices more reasonable this time.


Well, you can color me the happiest girl alive. As of last Tuesday, Silent Hill finally came out on DVD. It was the first time I'd ever watched ALL the special features on a DVD, and I have to say that it gave me a new appreciation for the movie. Couple that with Dead Rising, the free copy of Day of the Dead that came with it, AND Silent Hill....well, I'm pretty much in Horror heaven.

Oh yeah, and that second-part to the NCLR announcement will be hitting right after the first of the month.

Lastly, I'm fighting to get my dad to bring home cables for the digital camera. Once I have them, I have many photos to share. Those'll be coming soon.

Hey all,

Well, I bet you're wondering why there hasn't been any new Newscast in awhile. Well, the reason is simple. When you get doing something so often, well, you occasionally hit a brick wall and can't work. Well that happened. But I'm past it. Rejoice!

I have some BIG news regarding Newscast Live this year, I mean BESIDES the book. But I can't reveal it yet. As soon as it's all finalized, then I will let you know. But this is pretty cool in my opinion.

Speaking of the book, preorders for the special Newscast Live Redux edition will be up on the site soon. As of right now, the book will contain all the Newscast comics up until the end of Chapter 2. Also contained therein are wonders and merriment only avaliable to people who buy the book. So make sure to order yours for all the extra Newscast fun!


Dead Rising on the XBox 360. It's a great game. Lots of fun...Well, it's got it's share of big problems too, for example, if you're not running an HD TV, then you can't read the text. Also, if you die, you start over. There are no continues or auto saves, so it takes awhile to adjust. Other than that, it's gold. Very enjoyable.

Also, my art area is being rennovated. I doubt this will have any impact on the comic, but it might. Just a forewarning.

Hey everyone.

Wow, it's been awhile since I went on a rant, but now that I have gotten Newscast back to a somewhat normal update schedule, I feel more able to doso. In this particular comic, you might be wondering about Nienna's hair in panel 3. Well no, she can't become invisible. It's just that she has BIG hair and that tends to obscure the important arm-releasing that is happening.

This comic was a PAIN. I started on it Tuesday evening, and I finished it Saturday at 2:00 A.M. coloring it was INSANE. I might start looking for an official colorer soon, cause I hate doing it.


The backyard pond/Pirate thing is almost done. Work has slowed to a crawl on it, because me and my fathers' schedules have become thouroughly unworkable. But it's mostly done. Pics coming soon.

A good friend and artist I know, Katie Azbill, is working hard to finish the cover of Newscast Chapter 2: Of Evil Pie and Magic Tricks. For those of you who have not yet seen the cover for Chapter 1: Bounty Hunter Showdown, you can see it without all the logo and text on her DeviantArt page. I really love her stuff, and am honored that she has agreed to let me use her work for the cover of the first Newscast comic book.

Work continues to suck. It COULD be a fun place, except that the powers that be have decided that fun of any sort will have no place in an entertainment store. I've put in some applications elsewhere. Hopefully soon will see some sort of career change.

The ESA has pretty much cancelled E3. For the past few years I have been at odds with the game industry, and this takes my anger and contempt to a new level. So I guess from now on it's Tokyo Game Show and PAX for me....maybe.

Something big is happening in October. What is it? More information will be coming soon.
