Big Hero 6, 2014

July 15: I think of a unique crossover idea that I haven’t seen drawn before, and get to work on making a short comic.
July 29: I finish and post the first page of the comic!
August 4: The second page of the comic is posted, at this rate I should have the last page finished within the next week, but I run out of steam.
August 16: SE reveals a Big Hero 6 world for Kingdom Hearts III that uses the same concept I was going to reveal in page three of my comic.
August 23: I sheepishly post the last page, wishing I had finished sooner so I could say “Hey I did that first!”

So yeah! I don’t think anyone was more surprised then myself when that world was revealed. It’s a little annoying that I have no real proof so it kinda looks like I piggybacked off the canon idea, but it’s fun to know that myself and Nomura are apparently on the same wavelength!   Hopefully we’re on the same page about Kairi adventuring in the WiR worlds too.

As for what we’re getting in KHIII? I Couldn’t be more excited! I love the fact that the story takes place after the movie, that opens up many fun possibilities and scenarios. I’ll be happy to see how the gang is doing now that they’re real heroes!

Five graphic novels we’re reading this weekend

AFAR

In a fantastical post-industrial desert, fifteen-year-old Boetema suddenly develops the ability to astral project to other planets while she sleeps. When she accidentally gets a young man hurt on a planet light-years away, she must figure out a way to project back to save him. On her own world, Boetema’s two parents have temporarily left her and her thirteen-year-old brother, Inotu, to make a living as salt shepherds. Left to their own devices, the two siblings must flee across a dangerous desert when Inotu gets into trouble with a threatening cyborg bodyguard. As Boetema visits amazing planets and encounters vibrant cultures, she must confront her mistakes and learn to trust in Inotu as she navigates her newfound abilities.

BATGIRL Vol. 1: Beyond Burnside

Barbara Gordon’s heart belongs to Burnside, the ultra-hip Gotham City neighborhood. But some threats are bigger than Burnside. And when those threats come calling, Batgirl will answer!

Batgirl’s quest to track down her enemies’ master will take her from Okinawa to Singapore to Seoul to Shanghai. Along the way, she’ll enhance her martial arts skills, and meet legendary heroes.

New York Times best-selling creators Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time) and Rafael Albuquerque (AMERICAN VAMPIRE) take one of Gotham’s greatest heroes on a whirlwind world tour in BATGIRL VOL. 1: BEYOND BURNSIDE. Collects BATGIRL #1-6.

OUR CATS ARE MORE FAMOUS THAN US

In 2008, Ananth Hirsh and Yuko Ota launched the auto-bio webcomic Johnny Wander. Eight years, four cats, and three moves are chronicled in this gorgeous omnibus, which includes a foreword by Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Ghosts). Hirsh and Ota’s charming reverie about new adulthood will appeal to fans of Kate Beaton, Bryan Lee O'Malley, and Jeffrey Brown—along with anyone who’s just winging it.

Or can he and his Avengers friends Nova and Ms. Marvel find their own way? Things really get complicated when the future-seeing Inhuman Ulysses has a vision that puts Miles at the top of the most-wanted list! What terrible prediction could change the way the world looks at this young Spider-Man? Miles becomes a target, fighting to survive. Does he have any hope of escaping his pursuers — or his fate? Plus: Discover the untold history of Miles’ father! What was life like for Jefferson Davis before his son was born — back when he was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?! Collects Spider-Man (2016) #6-11.

Before we hit the roads we take all our adventurers on an acclimatisation ride to get used to insane power of the Royal Enfield Motorcycles…and the fact that they ride on the left hand side of the road. Gwen who was one of two ladies on the Top of the World adventure in 2014 was from Kansas USA so was glad she had a day on the bikes to get up to speed.

I will never not post.

Carrie is distracted during her sports bulletin by the bloke from Heroes, whom she has a little crush on…

Can you imagine??

My favourite line is when she says she can smell him :L
