There will be robots…

Hanks' World Awesomesauce logo


Here’s the logo for the “Robot Story” that I’m working on for Allen Freeman’s SLAM BANG comics anthology and as you can see, the title is "BLINK & SAM’S AWESOMESAUCE ADVENTURE.” (If the logo/design/layout is confusing to you, PLEASE say so now!)

It’s going to be an 8 page Hank’s World story and feature Blink and Sam joining in a sci-fi role-playing game session with Hank and his friends Amy, Kevin and Joshua.  (Think of Hank’s World as a spin-off series of Blink.) The group will be playing an old space-opera action-adventure game called “Star Frontiers” (I played the game in the 80’s and it’s although it’s officially out-of-print, thanks to enthusiastic fans, it’s still available to play).   The “Awesomesauce Adventure” will be split between the “real world” (at Hank’s house with everyone sitting at the table with plenty of paper, pencils, dice, soft drinks & snacks) and the “gaming world.” (with plenty of rampaging robots).

Here’s what Amy, Kevin & Josh look like in the “real world”:

And these are their “game world” characters:

I also have the outfits that Blink and Sam will wear in the “real world:”

Blink is going to “get into character” for the game, but if/how that’s going to differ from her “real world” persona is still to be determined.  Sam, however, could not care less about “getting into character.” 


I’ll be posting the work here as I complete it (in its various stages).  Please feel free to comment and make suggestions.


The BLINK Bookshelf Store is NOW OPEN!

Do you see the new “Blink Bookshelf” widget to the left?  That hyperlink leads to my ALL-NEW online shop!  I’ve tried using a few different online selling options in the past, but they’ve rarely worked out to my satisfaction.  I’m hopeful that this eCrater web store will actually WORK.  As far as I can tell, it’s actually FREE for me to use (big plus for a cheapskate like me) and hopefully it’s easy for readers/purchasers to use!  I can accept PayPal,  Money Orders (and I think credit cards).

I’ve just got a couple things up.  More to come!


If you missed it

Here's the  link to the hour and twelve minute long mp3 of my appearance on Allen Freeman's SLAM BANG MEDIA podcast show.   Oh wow... I just now realized that I am now featured in the iTunes store!  Woo!

A couple of my friends (and a few people I don't know) listened to the show live and two friends shared their thoughts on what I blathered on about.  If I can get a few more replies from other listeners/readers, I think that might encourage me enough to write a post-podcast entry to post here.
