Good morning party people.  It’s new comic day.  I’ve shrunk my pull down to just “Injection” and “Island Magazine.”  Although, I seem to be picking up Batman by Tim King and Superman by Patrick Gleason and Tomasi.

TODAY’S PANEL:

So Peter will be hovering just a few feet off the ground, and then Merlin will say something witty and “drop” him onto the ground.  After this we’ll be continuing the tour of the school by Merlin and then we’ll have a meeting in the principal’s office.

I’ve been watching a lot of DS9, and each character is so distinct.  I want to make sure each of these little guys has a specific, well-rounded character.  Some of it, I’m making up off the fly.  Like, the guy with the fish head.  We saw a glimpse of him in a hallway in an earlier scene – or someone like him, and then I just drew him again on the basketball court.  I just had the idea that he’d be super friendly and eager to make friends.  Any fish that gets a robot body so he can walk around with air breathers, has to be eager for experiences.

And the other little guy looks vaguely like:

The bad guys from DS9:the  Jem’Hadar.

Kind of, but not really.

WHAT I’M READING:

I’m reading an old Science Fiction book called, “The Mote in God’s Eye.”  It’s pretty fun.  It’s about man’s first contact with aliens.

Here’s a synopsis from Goodreads:

“In 3016, the 2nd Empire of Man spans hundreds of star systems, thanks to faster-than-light Alderson Drive. Intelligent beings are finally found from the Mote, an isolated star in a thick dust cloud. The bottled-up ancient civilization, at least one million years old, are welcoming, kind, yet evasive, with a dark problem they have not solved in over a million years.”

I’m also really enjoying a series of essays by Cory Doctorow.  I listen to them via the HOOPLA app on my iphone that gives me access to ebooks, movies, and audiobooks, with my LA library card.
