I know I mentioned this some time ago as being “imminent” and it still hasn’t happened so I just wanted to let you know the new cast page is “even more imminent” now! I’ve been slowly chiseling away at this mammoth project, a few new faces and links at a time, and it is now getting close, very close, to being finished. Other than being busy drawing Magellan pages and working on Crossoverkill, plus real life problems (and the fact I kind of forgot about it for a couple of months) a major reason for the delay has been the sheer size of it and the vast number of characters to be included… if someone has had more than a couple of panels then they’re almost certainly going to be included. And that’s a lot of characters!! I’m not going to set a date but I’m hoping it is within the next month and that this year will be a lot more productive from a Magellan point of view. Stay tuned for more Magellan news and musings for 2011.
Due to an attempted server transfer/upgrade by Drunk Duck over the last few days Crossoverkill has either been reeeeaaaaaaallllllllllyyyyyyy slllllllloooooooowwwwwww to load or not loading at all. Currently we’re back to “slow”. Apologies! It was unfortunate to have it happen during the Magellan sequence and we suspended updates for a few days. The update that should have happened on Monday will now happen Wednesday… as some old Magellan villains rear their heads! Providing DD stays online the remaining updates will happen for the rest of this week and every week day next week. Please check it out!
Hoodoo makes her first appearance in Crossoverkill today.
Unlike the other characters in this project (except for Captain Perfect), Hoodoo doesn’t have an eponymous webcomic and (like Captain Perfect) she’s a player in a huge cast. For that reason I asked for some indulgence to introduce her to Crossoverkill readers…and she’s doing it in style! Long time readers might be familiar with the robomat, and real fans might also know her special adversary… if not, no worries, links under the post will fill you in!
Although she was originally introduced at the end of the first Magellan chapter it was not until the fourth chapter – “Bad Karma” – that Hoodoo got the chance to shine. She had a blue themed costume back then and this is the debut of her scarlet threads! For everything else you might want to know about Hoodoo you can read it all here.
I know I’ve been very quiet on the Crossoverkill front for a while now – in large part that’s because I’ve been busily working away on a 13 page sequence that kicks off from today. That’s right… 13 pages in the Magellanverse. Having had it very easy over the last few months that this crossover has been running – sitting back and watching the awesome work by my fellow toonists roll in – it’s now my turn to step up to the batter’s block (or “crease” as we prefer to say in Australia)… GULP!
If you like Magellan then I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy this sequence which includes Energize, Mindmistress, Hoodoo, Force Magellan and some classic Magellan bad guys.
In order to fit all 13 pages into the schedule Crossoverkill will be updating Monday thru Friday this week and Monday thru Thursday for the next two weeks. Please check it out!
There’s a character featured in the latest (page 11) update of Crossoverkill who was designed by yours truly. The fabulous page was drawn by Nepath who normally does the honours on his own webcomics Energize and Fearless… my character, as yet nameless, is the short, big headed green haired girl (with cats ears!). Nepath did a great job in making her come across as quite unhinged, which she is! More on her and the other dopplegangers as the story progresses. I hope you’ve been following Crossoverkill so far, if not, don’t delay… start reading!
