Happy Friday, Marsers. This week delivers a freightlifter full of dialogue. So if you’re a fan of exposition, like me, this is your week. We find out Samantha Darkness’ real name and get a little info on the Vexx family.
But infodumping alone isn’t very interesting, so we also have a nice spread of action to accompany our discourse. Nic sort of revisits a few techniques he’s used, like the orange scanner vid and the washed-out monitor ‘cast. I think seeing them together is very cool. Personally, I love seeing the band playing (more of that coming up soon), so the vid shot here is cool.
For some reason, this page reminded me of a Metric video. Maybe the TV watching. The song also seems to fit and I can’t believe I haven’t suggested a Metric pairing yet. Emily Haines has an amazing voice (and puts on a great live show). I sometimes think Vikki G might sound like Haines. Though I also recently had someone suggest Vikki might sound like Neko Case. In any case, I guess Vikki sounds like a Canadian. So this week’s pairing is ‘Combat Baby’:
In other news, we’re working on the next Hannah Valerus tale, which may end up being substantially longer than ‘Boarding Party.’ Maybe novella longer. Would you pay $2 for an illustrated Valerus novella on Amazon? It’s something we’re definitely thinking about. We should also have some 30mm miniatures news soon for all you painters.
Finally, I don’t want to alarm anyone, but we are starting to run low on printed compilations. These were a pretty limited run so if you’re interested in having a physical manifestation of ‘Free Mars’ to hold in your twisted Earther claws, now would be the time to support the Revolution! Until next week,
