Nicholas Ahlhelm has let his love for superheroes as a concept pretty much overwhelm his good sense. A fan of super-powered prose fiction since he discovered Wild Cards at twelve. Since then, he has expanded his reading and viewing to cover superheroes through every means he can find, whether comics, prose fiction, movies, television, or transmedia sources. In the mean time, he regular maintains three fiction-producing website publications: Metahuman Press, Pulp Empire, and The Dead Walk Again. At the same time, he writes the weekly web comic Arc with artist Jay Rainford-Nash, published every Tuesday. (Other comic works are in various stages of production.)
He lives in Eastern Iowa with his wife and two daughters, in an increasingly small house.
The easy pitch for Stonehearth is Minecraft meets Starcraft, but for me, it most reminds me of an underrated gem also inspired by a mix of games, Terraria. The game looks like all kinds of fun and well worth a shot at the big time. Give it a look.
I am not sure if I like all the hinted at political motivations of Bloodthirsty, but as a graphic novel, the thing looks gorgeous. And unlike so many comics from relative unknowns, Mark Landry seems to have his head together on how to move his comic into production. Give it a look.
Yeah, I have just been to a wrestling show and will probably be on the road or at home and sleeping for 12 hours when this goes up. But I will be sure to have a full report in the days ahead! (Unless something unfortunate would happen to me to send me traveling through time…)
Since I will be out of town on my way to a wrestling event for this update, it seems fitting that I feature an episode from Hulk Hogan’s classic (or is that infamous) cartoon. Check out Brad Garrett as the Hulkster!
