Atomic Fallout

The trailer looks pretty promising!
But we can't shake the feeling of this "certain animation style" being the template for cartoon serieses made nowadays. Everything has that sort of "Gravity Falls" look to it.
Not like that's a bad thing and all.
With this being yet another Disney title after all.

Oh well, hopefully it breaks the stereotype and changes our mind soon after.


Tender Loving Care


See this is what happens when you don't have cable TV, you miss out on important TV milestones such as THIS.

The casting was pretty spot on (with the exception of Chili, I guess?)
The Lisa "Lefteye" Lopez was close to perfection and is as good as the real thing.
We haven't exactly seen the movie but we've been hearing good things about it on the youtube comments section(and we all know how reliable those things are).

Well then, should we go watch it? What scenes should we look out for?
But more importantly, where could we livestream it now that this made-for-tv movie was released some 2-3 years ago.
Post your suggestions and reviews on the comment section below.
But until then, that's that!
Ta-ta, fine folks of the interwebs!

Poster Boy

You can't judge a book by it's cover.
But sadly this is how your books will be judged by your "would be customers".
In the art world, appearance is (very much) everything.
Hence your cover should serve as an icebreaker and a brief introduction as to how your art/interior pages look like.
So t'would be best to choose a strong and relevant image.
One that best represent your vision and your story.

The following are some of the best (and at times the worst) comic covers that anyone could use for their own layouts.
It's unnecessary to follow these examples but rather, let this be your helpful guide instead.
Use them in moderation and as much as possible keep your layouts unique and unpredictable.
