I swear this past week has been pretty weird for me. Nothing really important or interesting has happened per se, but I’ve just been busy or lazy. I keep bouncing from one to the other.
Anyway, I meant to post this over a week ago, but I took part in another episode of the Saturday Supercast podcast, episode 10 (which you can snag over at the Talkshoe page.) This time out Jerzy Drozd, HooveR and I spend some time talking about how our generation processes our 80s nostalgia influences, or more accurately why it seem in today’s pop culture, instead of simply being influenced by the past, dredges up the exact same properties (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, Robo Force, well, not really Robo Force, but we do spend some time getting to the heart of these hug-tastic robots.)
Since I’m on the subject, and since I really do love the project so much, I’d like to remind everyone that the Sugary Serials anthology comic is updating every weekday for free, and that you can now order a print copy of the first issue from Indyplanet if you are more into having a physical copy handy. So far there have been three stories updating, Dreamform Defenders (by Chet Lucero), Equalizers of the Divide (By Jerzy Drozd and Sara Turner), and Curse of the Pharaohs (by Mark Rudolph.) These are all really great stories with some awesome art to boot.
