The second fantastic page is now online. This page shows all the participating members of the crossover – including Force Magellan’s Hoodoo. This page was also drawn by Essay Bee, the cartoonist for Fusion (and it is Fusion herself who is narrating this particular page, a standard device within her own comic). Stay tuned for more updates!
You got the amazing cover on Sunday and the whole story kicks off today (my god, it’s been so long in the planning it seems amazing to say that it’s started… but yeah, it’s started! woo!) Go check out the splendiferous first page courtesy of Essay Bee who is also the cartoonist for Fusion. Stay tuned for more updates!
As mentioned in the previous post, Hoodoo from Force Magellan will be participating in a crossover/team-up with characters from a number of other superhero webcomics over the coming months. Today it all kicks off with an superlative cover drawn by Aisuku (of Hero Academy) with gorgeous colours by TV’s Mr Neil (of Dasien) – check it out here!
The first page, drawn by Essay Bee (of Fusion) will go up this coming Tuesday… I’ve seen it already and have to say it is awesome, awesome stuff. I should add that the extremely nifty series logo as seen above was designed by The Red Death (of Bad Guy High).
Things are still on track for Magellan updates to recommence on Wednesday October 6. Yay! At this stage updates will only be once a week because I can’t guarantee more than that – I’ve found that having more breathing space for story writing and artwork was a blessed relief over rushing to finish pages, updating late or missing weeks altogether.
There are a couple of other separate Magellan based projects in development at the moment – one of which I can reveal today… Force Magellan’s witch extraordinaire, Hoodoo, will be joining forces with other webcomic superheroes in the reality spanning epic adventure Crossoverkill which will kick off next month. Crossoverkill is a colaborative effort between myself and the talented webcartoonists of Mindmistress, Bad Guy High, Fusion, Energize, Majestic Knight and Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki… plus other guests.
Even if you’ve been reading Magellan for a while, you’d be excused if you couldn’t place Hoodoo from the previous goings on within the webcomic – so for veterans and newbies alike I’ve put together a Who is Hoodoo page to get you up to speed. She emerged as a fan fave during the Bad Karma storyline (well, three or five fans said they really liked her, so that counts as a fan fave, right?). For those of you already familiar with her you might have noticed that she has changed her costume from blue to a red theme which will debut in Crossoverkill.
I can’t give away too many details about Crossoverkill just yet, but it’s planned to kick off on October 10 and I’ll keep reminding you to check it out during it’s run.
In the meantime, welcome to the new Magellan site – it’s still being cobbled together, I’m getting it ready for October 6 so it’s not quite ready yet, but please feel free to have a read through the stories.
Should you stumble across this site… welcome… it’s very much a work in progress, I guess I should have it on supersecret mode or something but I’m too lazy to work out how to do that. Anyway if you come back on October 6 2010 I hope to have sorted out the blog mechanics and stylesheets and whatnot…!
