For Valentine’s day, please enjoy “The Truth,” a Star Trek minicomic by Ming Doyle and myself.
It was created for To Boldly Zine, a Trek zine edited by our friend Dafna. It makes its debut this weekend at the L.A. Zine Fest. In addition to this story, there are contributions by Jason Ho, Joshua Williamson, Rachel Dukes, Ian Brill, and a bunch of other super-talented folks. If there are any left over after the event, I’ll be sure to give you a link to it!
One part of the Achilles myth that I wish was in tsoa is that Achilles was not the only child of Peleus and Thetis, he was the youngest of 7 and the only one to survive past infancy. I think that would have added another layer to why Achilles was so spoiled by everyone and why Thetis wanted so badly to take him away and make him immortal

It’s funny, it’s serious, it’s emotional. There’s something for everyone.
‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ to get DLC that expands storyline, no appearance from Hero of Ferelden
The story once goes on and on for Dragon Age: Inquisition,
as the highly acclaimed action role-playing game is set to receive a
downloadable content (DLC) pack featuring stronger focus on additional
story content, according to developers.
In his recent talk with fans and players over Twitter, game Creative Director Mike Laidlaw revealed details about the next DLC pack coming to Dragon Age: Inquisition, following the most recent Jaw of Hakkon.
“The past three days have been filled with that weird intensity that
makes game dev kind of addictive’” he posted. “It’s a rush when things
come together.” When asked what he was working on, he said: “We’re not
quite done with story content for DAI [Dragon Age: Inquisition] just yet.”
The tease of an additional storyline clearly made fans and player
both happy and excited for the arrival of the said content. However,
Laidlaw has made it clear and seemingly final that the Hero of Ferelden
will not be coming back to the game in any way at all.
When asked about it, he said: “I’ve already said that the Hero of
Ferelden will not be appearing. Sorry!” he also killed off any hope for a
future appearance for the Hero of Ferelden: “I wouldn’t work too hard
on that particular hope. I do not feel the HOF would work well as an NPC
The Hero of Ferelden refers to the protagonist of the first Dragon Age game, Dragon Age: Origins.
The previous DLC pack, Jaws of Hakkon, featured new armors, weapons, enemies, as well as introducing a new region, Frostback Basin. A multiplayer DLC pack was also released recently, the Dragonslayer and The Black Emporium, where the "Mirror of Transformation” was introduced, allowing players to change their appearance.
