Lately, I have been watching more Japanese wrestling than usual. Dragon Gate and NJPW have became my two promotions of choice, though I do like to pull out some Big Japan or NOAH as well, mostly for the greatness that is Daisuke Sekimoto. With that in mind, here is some great Japanese action to check out.
NJPW World Tag League Finals: Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Satoshi Kojima
Brent Sprecher knocked it out of the park with his awesome cover!
The big two news stories from this writer’s update are already available from last week. Lightweight started its digital debut, the first chapter in a monthly serialized superhero story. This will be the first of many tales of Lightweight and Millie Bryant as they seek to unravel the mystery of his powers! If you have not already picked up your copy please head over to Lightweight: Dreams, Smashwords or Patreon and support the project!
I also announced the January debut of The 52/14 Project, my ambitious plan to release 52 stories in the calendar year 2014, one each week. That endeavor will kick off on January 3, 2014 with the debut of Lightweight 2. More on that in next week’s update.
I am currently battling a nasty case of pneumonia which cut down much of my writing time over the weekend as I just have not been able to devote as much time at the computer as I would like. But I have used that time to catch up on a whole bunch of reading. I have finished a half dozen graphic novels that have sat awhile while also working my way through James Hudnall’s debut Hell’s Reward.
I am getting better though. Tomorrow will hopefully see me finalize the second draft of Lightweight 2 before I start on the re-edits of two pieces that will debut next month as part of 52/14.
Suffice it to say, Nick will be busy in December. Thanks for following and don’t forget to send in your thoughts on Lightweight 1!
