News

Actually, it's a buck-and-a-quarter quarterstaff. November 13, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Sorry about the lack of a news post yesterday, folks. I literally had nothing of interest to say, even about the week's new comic books. I would've just been repeating myself saying how much I love Deadpool written by Daniel Way and that Blackest Night continues to impress and sadden me. So, good stuff, but nothing terribly new.

My friend, ever-ready model and frequent filler art contributor Tarah told me yesterday that one of the things she likes about me is that I give the spotlight to blunt weapons in fantasy. I guess between Melna's hammer wielding, Hukthak's staff swinging and Stonewater's "shield stomp," she's right. There are so many awesome weapons in the fantasy genre but everyone loves focusing on swords. Sword of This. Sword of That. Give me a warhammer or an axe or even a quarterstaff any day! And shields! Poor, thankless shields! Sometimes I think shields have been forgotten in favor of the dual-wielding swordsman. I'll tell you this much... if I ever go into battle, I'll be wielding two shields. I think I'd need that much protection.

Oh, I almost forgot. This month's Donation Wallpaper ought to be up later today, so check back if you're interested!

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a nice weekend!
