UPDATED Cybertronian Slag by SheepSlave

You've done a superb job here - I like the way you've taken stylistic liberties with the character's outline, and you've nailed the loo...

Because, like, it's been a while since that was a thing.

Yep. The rumours are true. I've joined the swelling ranks of anime critics online. I've got a new blog with guns in its legs and EVERYTHING. And you can find it in the link below:

Why did I do this? What led me to such folly? How was I persuaded to start typing up crap about Japanese cartoons independently of my occasional reviews for AUKN?

Well, it's simple, really. I've had some stuff going on over here that's been stressing me out a little, and writing something just for fun has been a good way to keep my mind off it (all solved now, thankfully). Plus, I just really, really like this stuff, and a few folks had badgered me about doing something like this for a while. Since my review of Vertical Publishing's Gundam: The Origin manga got quoted on the back of the fourth hardback, it's almost like people are - GASP! - interested in my opinions. Wowzah.

Oh yeah - it has absolutely NUTHIN' to do with the fact that I don't have a girlfriend right now and I was in danger of otherwise wasting my surfeit of free time at the moment by dwelling on the agonizing darkness at the core of my being and the agony of my self imposed reclusive mountain-man type existence. For GOD'S SAKE, Rachel Nichols, RETURN MY FREAKIN' LETTERS!!!

Uh, yeah. Anyhoo, there's the blog. I have some ideas for fun things I can do with it, and you might even see a few guest writers on there from time to time. Mostly, I'm planning to update it every 2 - 3 months, with a feature review and a set of bite-size follow ups on whatever I've been watching that month. And if you're taken in by this nonsense idea that other people have perpetuated that I'm a soft-centered nice guy who loves EVERYTHING that's put in front of him, I DARE you to take a look at the mini review of GYO - Tokyo Fish Attack. It's already upset somebody a great deal.

Yaaaayyy! Chapter one is all finished!

I posted page 23, which rounds off the first instalment, yesterday evening. And it seems to have gone down rather well!

The last page managed to attract more than DOUBLE the number of views than the previous highest peak. This has marked a really encouraging trend of the pages being seen by more and more people every week. Seems like some of you guys are really digging it, too!

There'll be a short break before chapter 2 begins in June. I'd hoped it'd be a one month hiatus, but I have so much lettering work on my plate right now that I need to take a spell to get it all finished, then get my breath back before I start drawing new content.

Keep 'em peeled, folks! And here's the link to the main site:

Mothra's Ultimate Enemy! by hde2009
Mothra's Ultimate Enemy!
Something I did way back last year - originally submitted to IDW when they were running fan art in the back of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.

It didn't make it in, but I had a lot of fun doing this anyway!
Loading...

Just re-posting something from my Facebook page:

Okay - after deliberation, I've decided I'm going to take the plunge and set up my own anime review website. This may come as shock to precisely NO-ONE, as I've posted a lot about the stuff lately, and y'all know how much I loves muh Japanese cartoonz.

I figure what I'll do is make the site an 'irregular updates' kind of deal, but with the aim of updating roughly every two months. The focus will be on shows that I haven't covered for AUKN, and most likely with a bias towards mecha shows and science fiction.

BUT! BUT! BUT!
(That's in all-caps because I like big 'buts', and I won't deny!)

I'm going to do a little 'audience participation' here. I already know what my first review is going to be. Beyond that, I'm thinking I might work it on a 'requests' basis. So if there's a show you'd like to see given my partick-lee-ar vein of scrutiny, feel free to post it here. Some things, I may just not be able to cover. But if you don't ask, you won't get. There's no rule that says the show has to be recent or current. In fact, if I can cover older shows, that's even better, because I like the idea of the site being a kind of curio corner, or a full-on celebration of this crazy medium I'm in love with.

I may also need some help from time to time when it comes to sourcing screen shots of certain shows. I might even, if it's workable, have somebody else come in to give an independant opinion on a show.

SO. That's my formal declaration of SRS BSNS. Now, if anyone has any ideas, suggestions, or maybe wants to contribute, or can think of a show or movie they'd like to see covered, let's have 'em!

Wow - I'm shocked to see that I haven't updated my DA page with anything about my webcomic BROKEN GODDESS ATHENA in a good long while... not since I posted page 6, in fact. That was about 3 months back!

So, I guess I'd better redress that. There's lots to report, assuming you haven't seen this stuff elsewhere.

Here's where things are at:

Yesterday, I posted the 18th page of the first chapter. So there's now a fair bit of the thing online and ready to read. You can find it here, on Wordpress:
brokengoddessathena.wordpress.…

Alternatively, if you want a nice, easy reading experience, I recommend reading the comic on ComicRocket.com Here's the relevant link:
www.comic-rocket.com/explore/b…

I've been getting some STELLAR feedback of late on the comic - it seems folks are really enjoying it. I can't begin to say how gratifying that is. However, there's still not quite the buzz around it that I'd like. I've enjoyed a few massive spikes in page views, as well as some praiseful comments from industry figures. But all of this is behind-the-scenes stuff, and  as gratifying as it is, it doesn't go very far toward building an audience for the book, unfortunately. So, if you're enjoying what you've read so far, please, please, please do give the Facebook page a like, share updates there or direct folks to it. Leave a comment on the Wordpress page. Whatever your fuzzy little hearts desire. It is AMAZING what a positive effect this can have. There are folks who already give the comic their regular support, and it's very much appreciated.

Heres the good news: Things are going well enough that I have some cool developments to announce.

1. FULL COLOUR EDITION!
This is in the works, and the current plan is for individual chapters to be released via digital platforms such as Comixology. I'm also viewing this version of the comic as 'the final cut', so any rough edges that aren't smoothed out for the web pages will be fixed for that. There'll also be some juicy extra features. I'd say what they are, but there's still a way to go to finalise some of them.

2.
LETTERS PAGE!
Yeah. Really. No guff! Would I like to you? If you feel like sending in a letter, or even fan art, you can send it to bgamailbox@gmail.com - be sure to use the subject header LETTERS TO BGA. The plan is to take a month's hiatus between chapters, and letters will be displayed on the main site during that time. Any correspondence may appear in other editions of the comic as well. So if you DO write in, make sure it's with something you wouldn't mind your granny reading!

(What? My comicis VERY popular ith senior citizens, I'll have you know!)

And that's it, except to say that I started work on chapter two last week. There's a stonkeroo of a cover in the works, and I've got the magnifabulous Josh Burcham on board to colour it again. So the ball is definitely rolling... and you'll see another aspect of the Broken Goddess Athena universe in the first few pages - as well as some new characters!
 
So there it is - more HdE comic goodness than you can shake a stick at. Hope you''re all enjoying it!
