Happy Holidays!

Hello, Dear Reader!

Well, it's that time of year again, and you know what that means . . . Time to pop in my "Christmas in the Stars" CD (that's the Star Wars Christmas album, in case you didn't know) and crank up the volume for such great carols as "R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and the classic "What Can You Get a Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Has a Comb)."

In celebration of the holidays, I really wanted to take some time to thank you for making this past year such a good one for me--you're like my extended, extra-dimensional family, and the holidays is a time for family! As a gift to you, I put together a bonus edition of Savunn's Corner (other editions are in the print copies of Fusion) just for the holidays. Hope you don't mind my goofy art!

Anyway, I hope you have a very wonderful holiday! Talk to you soon!

Sorry About the Lack of Updates

Just wanted to take a few moments to apologize for the lack of updates. Turns out being a student and superhero doesn't leave a lot of time for blog updates!

Anyway, my Transcriber at Essay Bee Comics has brought a number of comments and questions to my attention from you about some aspects of the Superpowers Law (and hero Copyright issues). In truth, I'm not that familiar with all of the nuances of the Law myself, but I'll be sure to relay the questions to Captain Stupendous or Riveter next time I see them. (I'd ask Brooder, but I doubt he'd give me much of an answer.)

Also, I think it's worth mentioning that, unlike Purple Principal, Wandering Whistler didn't really get much in the way of a memorial ceremony after his murder. In large part, the lack of a service is because of the Whistler's nature (most heroes say it's only a matter of time before he shows up again), but it's still something I'd like to discuss. The Whistler has always been a bit of an enigma, and I didn't know much about him until I asked around after his death--and the story I got is REALLY cool! So cool that I have to share it with you!

But, since I'm short on time, that'll be an update for another time.

Sorry for the tease, but suffice it to say I have a lot to talk about (and what I mentioned above is just 2 of the things I wanna tell you about).

Take care, and I'll talk with you soon!

Another Murder in the Hero Community!

Thermo has struck again!

Late last night, the Wandering Whistler fell from the sky. Just like with the Purple Principal, he was found with two bullets in his head, and a few hours later a video of Thermo--where he again claimed responsibility for the murder--made its way to the news stations.

It looks like Thermo's promise of a "Hero Holocaust" wasn't just an empty threat.

I'll keep you updated as I learn more.

Day of Remebrance

Today was the day the Purple Principal was laid to rest, and I was there in the front row, right next to Captain Stupendous and Grasshopper, at the request of SAS. Apparently, the Purple Principal was a school principal by vocation and took a keen personal interest in all of us younger superheroes. According to Captain Stupendous (who personally invited both Grasshopper and me), Grasshopper and I were among the new wave of heroes that the Principal took a liking to, and SAS thought it would be appropriate to give young heroes the most prominent seats, since the Principal always sought to inspire kids and teens to make the best of themselves.

It was a nice ceremony--well, as nice as funerals go--and I got to meet a number of heroes, including Dr. Electric (with whom I only spoke briefly via communicator during my SAS interview--see Issue #2). He was there with fellow Fab Fiver, Polygraph--the other three members of the Fabulous Five were out of the country lending humanitarian aid to the worsening situation in Darmar.

Over 2,000 civilians (many of them students) were also among those assembled, and after the ceremony, many of the heroes, including myself, hung out and mingled with them--and I even gave out my first autographs!

Security was very tight, and there were heroes on almost every rooftop, hundreds of police, and constant surveillance from the SAS space station. Thankfully, there was no violence, and no sign of Thermo (the villain who murdered the Principal). Everyone tried to keep the occasion celebratory to honor the Principal's upbeat and positive attitude, but I know the promise of Thermo's "Hero Holocaust" hung over everyone's head. Almost every hero I spoke with kept an eye to the sky and was ready to jump into action at the merest hint of danger.

Well, I have an exam to study for, so I gotta get going. Talk to you soon, Dear Reader.

Saddness Turns to Outrage! (New Details About Purple Principal's Murder)

Okay. So the situation with the Purple Principal just got a lot grimmer.

Yesterday, when the story about his death was just surfacing, everything seemed to point to him being murdered. That much has been confirmed. SAS and the police have released the gruesome details of his death, and said that he was found in an alley with two bullets in his brain and his Paddle of Vengeance broken at his side.

As I said yesterday, I couldn't think of anyone who would want to hurt him, although I wondered if his run-ins and subsequent punishment of drug dealers might've caused someone to hold a grudge against him.

I was wrong.

Shortly after the details of his death were released, a video surfaced with a new supervillain calling himself Thermo taking responsibility for what he straight-up called an "assassination." Even worse, he said that this was just the first killing in what would be a "Hero Holocaust."

I don't think I like the way this week is shaping up at all!

A Day of Saddness in the Hero Community

Today's been kind of a rough day. Luckily, I got my report for English done on time, and I think I did okay on my pre-calc exam (contrary to female stereotypes, I do well in math), but tonight news broke about the death of a superhero. The Purple Principal (dubbed the Daring-Doer of Discipline) was confirmed to be dead. Neither the police nor SAS has yet released any details, but unconfirmed reports are saying it looks like murder!

The Purple Principal was a well liked hero and really didn't have any enemies in the villain community. He spent most of his time reaching out to disadvantaged kids--lecturing at inner-city schools and helping out with various community outreach programs--although he was also known to dish out some discipline with his Paddle of Vengeance--which was usually used on drug dealers.


Perhaps he ran afoul of some drug lord?

I'll keep you posted as I find out more details.

Fan Art Work!

How cool is this?

A reader did a piece of fanart of Grasshopper and me! I'd like to give a big "Thanks!" to Legend Comics for doing this great pic! For those of you who would like to see more of his art, check out his Sketchbook.

He also has two really fun comics that he works on: The Urban Legends and Knight Hawk and Kid Sparrow. Be sure to check them out!

Fusion Issue #2 cbr File

Hello, Dear Reader!

Sorry I've been away for so long. Things have gotten really busy around here lately. Don't want to give anything away, but you'll read about it in future issues of Fusion.
Anyway, I really wanna get back into the habit of regular updates for you, so let me start by posting a link to download a cbr file of Issue #2 of Fusion. (Do a Search for "cbr viewer" to find a good free cbr viewer so that you can read the entire issue like a virtual comic book.)


Issue #3 is well into production, so I'll begin posting that here in the next few days as well.

I have a test to study for, so I gotta get going. Talk to you later!

Fusion #2 Final Update (Pages 18-21)

Well, Dear Reader, here's the last update for Issue #2 of Fusion. Looks like things are about to kick into high gear!

Grasshopper again shows his good taste in movies by joining me in another round of movie quotations (I swear, every time we're in a SAS shuttle, we're reminded of a movie), but Brooder doesn't seem to mind as much this time--probably because he's preoccupied with the situation developing on the ground.

And how about Captain Stupendous?

Whatever's waiting for us, it must be something major to take out the Captain like that!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this second glimpse into my life. I hope you continue to follow my adventures!

Fusion Issue #2 Update (Pages 14-17)

Things have been busy around here, what with schoolwork and crimefighting and everything. Because of that, I've been a bit slow to get this last update up.

Anyway, here's my brief SAS interview with three of my heroes (Captain Stupendous, Riveter, and that sour-puss Brooder), as well as Dr. Electric, leader of the Fabulous Five (who's chiming in via communicator). The Fab Five are not a part of SAS, although SAS does frequently consult with them (especially Dr. Electric, who's probably the most brilliant scientific minds on my world).

For those wondering what my powers are, you'll at long last get your answer, although this interview gets cut short by a crisis!

There are only another 4 pages to go in Issue #2, so you know things are about to move into high gear.

Until next time, take care, Dear Reader!

WOO-HOO! My Story's Been Featured at Drunckduck.com!

This was certainly a nice surprise.

Sorry . . . a VERY nice surprise would be more accurate!

My Transcriber at Essay Bee Comics just informed me that my story is now a Featured Comic at Drunkduck.com. (That's where my Transcriber uploads my comic weekly--on Tuesdays, for those interested.)

I've also seen all the kind words that folks have been saying and am really flattered. So I'd like to give a big thanks to the people who've been following my story all along and welcome all of the new fans to my life. I really hope you all continue to enjoy my adventures! There's lots more to come!

Fusion #2 Update (Pages 10-13)

I'm back, and with another 4-page update!

These pages present me in my full geek glory! (Not sure I should be so proud of that, but that's just the way I am!) As if the Star Wars feeling of this little space trip wasn't exciting enough, I actually got to meet a number of other heroes of whom I'm a MAJOR fan!

Brooder continues to try to get under my skin and I continue to annoy him, but--just between you and me--it's pretty fun to rankle his feathers.

Anyway, here are pages 10-13 of Fusion #2!

My Story is a Featured Link!

This is really cool!

A little while ago, the folks at Rival Comics were nice enough to give my story a positive review. Now the folks who tell the story of Mindmistress have included me as a Featured Link! You can check out the adventures of Mindmistress at http://mindmistress.comicgenesis.com/ (and if you scroll down the main page, you can find the Featured Link to Fusion).

It's so cool to have people enjoying my story enough to tell others about it. Thanks a lot to everyone who's keeping up with my adventures!

Fusion #2 Second Update (Pages 6-9)

Hello, Dear Reader!

Boy, have I fallen behind in my blogging. According to my Transcriber at Essay Bee Comics, it's been over two weeks since I should have posted this update for Issue #2. Sorry!

Anyway, this update will introduce you to another young hero, who, it seems, is a lot like me. We had a ball together and, I think, annoyed the Brooder more than a little bit. (And, since the Brooder will never see this, I must admit that annoying him can be pretty fun in itself!)

Well, here's the second update for Issue #2--only 4 pages this time (and the rest of the updates for this issue will be 4-page updates as well).

Pages 6-9

New Ad from My Transciber

Well, here's my first post of the new year.

Sorry it's been almost a month since my last post, but things have been pretty busy.

My Transcriber at Essay Bee Comics said that he's looking into maybe printing up some copies of my first issue--just thought I'd pass that tidbit along to you, in case there's any interest in buying a copy.

Also, the guys at Rival-comics.com were nice enough to offer to run an ad for me in the print run of their comic CAPTive. I pitched an idea to my Transcriber to do the ad as a Star Wars tribute (yeah, I know . . . me and my love of Star Wars), and he was able to put my idea together. I also got Harold to help out, although I don't think it was exactly what he had in mind. Some folks over at Outcaststudios.com also deserve a mention, since their critiques helped my Transcriber with the layout (and a few other odds and ends).

Anyway, here's the ad!
