Swatch Stories: The Search Continues

Knitting | Work in Progress - Wed, 07/19/2017 - 14:08
The Valere pattern is almost ready for release and Herlacyn Heatwave is perking along in the background, Meanwhile, I'm diligently experimenting with stitch patterns destined for a fun, colorful afghan design I'm itching to cast on.


In a perfect world, said stitch would be fast, easy and reversible (of course!), have an interesting texture, and be attractive in both one- and two-color applications. I want this to be a quick knit, so I'm planning to use bulky yarn. This adds an interesting fillip, because not all stitches hold up well when worked in heavier weight yarns.

These photos leave a lot to be desired, but you get the gist. As you can see, I've worked my way through quite a few options, and while several have potential, I've not yet found the one that clearly says, I'm the one.

While the search for the right stitch continues, I'd value your feedback. Try to look past the wobbly edges and curling borders (these things can be fixed) and focus on the stitches themselves. If you spot one that catches your fancy, let me know.


If all goes as planned, Valere will be released on Sunday, so mark your calendar and take advantage of the substantial savings!

Comments: “Chapter One” A group of Side-Kicks gets together kind of as a support group for each other. Being a Side-Kick is not all about the glory of hanging out with a super-hero. They feel under appreciated and they are.
With Mr. Marvelous and Phantasm the divide between hero and side-kick is obvious. The Scepter and Atlas also shows us that heroes are not as good at being heroes as some side-kicks are.
Captain Celebrity and Mustang shows us that a hero does not care so much about being a hero as being a celebrity.
Phantasm aka Richard and Mustang aka Dan are both fed up with how Side-Kicks are treated and they decide to do something about it.
The heroes and side-kicks are all illustrated to show them to best effect. They are all drawn heroic in action. The Side-Kicks in their civilian identities are drawn as just ordinary guys and gals.
“Chapter Two” The heroes without their side-kicks who are on strike find they need their side-kicks. They were not there just to hang out, they were a vital part of the team. The city and the heroes are finally starting to realize it.
The attacks on the heroes lead by the Board of Directors a super villain group works well without the side-kicks around. The attacks are drawn great and with wonderful scenes of the bad guys.
“Chapter Three” A lot of the side-kicks time is spent in a bar. It is a good meeting place. They are staying firm.
Meanwhile, the villains continue to take out the heroes.
Finally, the heroes realize as well as the people of the city that they need their side-kicks.
The side-kicks are back and ready to make a difference again.
“Chapter Four” Here the Side-Kicks take charge and lead an assault on the super villains. Teamwork works. Side-Kicks can be heroes too.
It is great seeing the Side-Kicks united and taking down the big bad guys. The action is drawn great in the scenes of battle.
“Pick (UP) A Card” Written by Richard Casey, art by Gary Deslauriers, letters by Troy Peteri and associate editor Kristine Chester.
The Flying Fox and Jolt take on Trick Deck. The way the Flying Fox treats Jolt his side-kick is awful. The Flying Fox does have an attitude. He does make a good hero though. The art is done in a rough style. The use of powers here is shown off well.
“Gauntlet” Written by Adam Breen, pencils and inks by Steven Defendini, colors by Juancho Velez, letters by Troy Peteri and associate editor Kristine Chester.
Atalanta and Frostbite’s first meeting happens here. She is a superhero and she wants a partner. She gets one in more ways than one. As she tests him he passes and the action is fast and furious. Atalanta puts him through her paces. She picked a winner. Both these characters come across as heroes. The giant boar is amazingly illustrated. It is a creature to be feared.
Side-Kicks are just as good as the heroes they work with not for. They deserve respect and to be treated like a hero too. That is the message here and it is right.

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 07/19/2017 - 13:21
My exploration of the long-running euro-comic Storm, continues with his adventures in the world of Pandarve. Earlier installments can be found here.

Storm: The Seven of Aromater (1984) 
(Dutch: De Zeven van Aromater) (part 3)
Art by Don Lawrence; script by Martin Lodewijk

Ember and Nomad watch from hiding as the Prince's steamship launches a smaller boat with the Seven or Aromater aboard. As they head toward the waterspout beneath the red, Ember realizes in horror what they plan.

She breaks from hiding to try to reach Storm. She is quickly captured and the former Storm, now the Seventh, ignores her cries. The ship sails on:


The Prince has Ember and Nomad in changes. He plans to keep them alive until the the survivors of the Seven return from the Red Tear with the Brain Coral. Until then, his ship will circle the waterspout and wait.

Ember and Nomad don't plan to be idle. They have hidden the remainder of the potion that converted Storm into a monster. Ember drinks it quickly and:


With enhanced strength and resistance to harm, Ember makes short work of the sailors. She and Nomad take over the ship. Ember isn't mindless like Storm and the others, she guides the ship toward the waterspout! The ship rides through the Storm--and is ultimately smashed!

Ghostbusters “Answer the Call” Crew to Star in New Comic Series

First Comics News - Wed, 07/19/2017 - 13:15
Ghostbuster Veterans Kelly Thompson and Corin Howell Team up for More Paranormal Adventures From IDW Publishing This October

San Diego, CA (July 19, 2017) — Fire up your proton pack—the Ghostbusters universe is set to expand with Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, a five-issue comic book series launching in October 2017.

The members of the Ghostbusters team from Sony’s 2016 feature film were first introduced to IDW’s long-running Ghostbusters comic books line with Ghostbusters 101, in which they joined forces with the original Ghostbusters for an inter-dimensional crossover adventure. Their highly publicized comic book debut sold out upon release, and now the proton pack-wielding women are back. No longer content to share the spotlight, they are busting out into their very own comic series!

The creative forces behind this series are writer Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Ghostbusters: Deviations) and artist Corin Howell (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ghostbusters: International) both of whom have confronted the paranormal and lived to tell the tale, each having played in the Ghostbusters comics sandbox previously. Their rendition of the new generation of ‘busters is the next exciting addition to the ever-expanding Ghostbusters shared universe, and will serve as the perfect jumping-on point for Ghostbusters fans—old and new alike—combining the spirit of the original franchise with the spunk of the 2016 film.

“After the phenomenal success of teaming the 2016 Ghostbusters with the original Ghostbusters in our dimension-hopping Ghostbusters 101 series, we are very excited to bring fans all new Ghostbusters: Answer the Call adventures,” said Editor Tom Waltz.  “If Ghostbusters 101 proved anything, it’s that ‘busting feels good in any dimension, and we at IDW are honored to join Sony and Ghost Corps in continuing to expand the ever-popular Ghostbusters shared universe.”

In the exciting series debut, “What Dreams May Come, Part 1!,” while on a routine house call to dispose of a simple Class III spook, Abby, Patty, Erin, and Holtzmann encounter a truly terrifying Class VII that appears to be feeding on fear. Able to create illusions that prey on their greatest fears and with designs on turning the world into its own nightmare dimension (‘natch!), our ladies may have finally met their match!

Fans in need of a healthy dose of ectoplasm can look for Ghostbusters: Answer the Call #1 in stores October 2017. Corin Howell will draw the main cover, with Elsa Charretier (Love is Love) and Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake) providing the variant covers.
