A Few Words from a Book by Harry Harrison

Featured

“When girls head for the stars, they are clad in bikinis, or skintight bathing suits made of cellophane or some other flexible and transparent substance. Even when they get out of their space gear they sport bare legs and bared midriffs. So who is it that would like to look at girls with very little clothes on? Why boys of course.”

Paraphrased from a segment of the book MECHANISMO (1978) in which the author, Harry Harrison, discusses the reason for the differences between the space gear worn by girls and boys in the old space opera pulps.

Trailer for New “Resident Evil 7” DLC released!

As you can see, a trailer featuring the two upcoming DLC episodes for Capcom’s video game Resident Evil 7 has been released. One episode, called Not a Hero, will be free to all those who own the game. The other episode, called End of Zoe, will only be available to those who have also purchased the season pass (which contains additional content), although it’s likely that it will also be available as an individual DLC episode.

“Night of the Werewolves” #001 Has Been Released!

As promised, the first comic strip of my new web comic, called Night of the Werewolves, has been released today, Friday the Thirteenth! You can check it out by using the drop down menu that appears under the new “Projects” tab at the top of this blog. It’s only just begun, so there’s only one comic strip available at the moment. but I’ll be adding more comic strips very soon. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Trailer for “The Last Jedi” Released!

I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan for almost my entire life, but I have to say that at the moment, my love for the franchise is at an all time low. Things seem to be going from bad to worse, in that galaxy far, far away. So to be honest I wasn’t exactly dying to see the full trailer for The Last Jedi, which was released today. What do I think about it, now that I’ve seen it? Not much, actually. I didn’t find it particularly interesting or exciting. The film does seem to have a very dark mood about it, which I think John Boyega (AKA Finn) remarked on not so long ago, but that may simply be due to the fact a lot of the shots in the trailer are in dark places. In any case, it may possibly end up being the darkest Star Wars film to date. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New Web Comic: “Night of the Werewolves”

This a teaser post for a new web comic (the first, in fact) that I will be publishing here on Moe Dimension. As much as I enjoy making illustrations, the truth is my main passion is storytelling. The thing is, though, that I’ve struggled to find the best way to present my stories. In the past, I’ve tried writing novels and comics without much success. Therefore, this time I’ve decided to try my hand at a web comic.

When I say web comic, I am referring to something resembling the adventure comic strips that appeared in the newspapers of yesteryear, like The Phantom, for example. So this won’t be a gag-based web comic, but a narrative-based one. In other words, an illustrated story, told in short snippets. I think this format will suit me quite well, as it will make production more manageable, as well as allowing me to prioritise story over art. Anyway, I think that’s enough build-up.😄 Here is a promo image I’ve prepared for Night of the Werewolves.

As you may be able to guess, this will be a dark fantasy adventure, leaning towards horror. Accordingly, I will post the first strip of this web comic on this coming Friday, which is of course Friday the 13th. After that, I will attempt to post new strips as regularly as possible, but because this is the first time I’m trying this, I’m not sure how smoothly it will go. In any case, this will not be a long story: it’s main purpose is to test how doable a web comic is for me. If I decide it is doable, then my plan is to start working on a longer story.

So that’s about it for this teaser post. If your interest has been piqued, please come back to Moe Dimension on Friday, although there will probably be other posts in the meantime. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
