CROSSOVERKILL Reveal: HOODOO of MAGELLAN!
Neilsama on Sept. 26, 2010
You may not be familiar with Hoodoo, but many of you are familiar with MAGELLAN–it's appeared for years on Comic Genesis and more famously on GRAPHIC SMASH, along with other features like Wonderella, SHADES, and Brat-Halla. It also has a new main site at Magellanverse. Many of you may have caught the praise-filled reviews at Cool Web Comics and Faces of Color.
Stephen took a hiatus from MAGELLAN, but it'll be starting new updates again on Oct. 6th. Those of us already familiar with Magellan can follow it there–or if you're not familiar with it, I suggest reading here at Drunk Duck's Magellan where Stephen's running previous strips EVERY SINGLE DAY, to get people up to speed…check it out.
This HOODOO cast page will give you a lot of background on the character—more than has been revealed in Magellan thus far–and links to every single one of her appearances.
MAGELLAN focuses on the cadets at Magellan Academy, especially the nonpowered Kaycee Jones, but it's a huge organization, like the Legion, the X-Men, the Avengers. There's an “epic” feel to it, and a complex history. Those interested can find out more at http://magellanverse.com/?p=141
Mindmistress has sort of a “visiting professor” status there, and she's the tutor of superintelligent cadet Rochelle Kwan, as seen in BUYING THE STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN as Mindmistress and Rochelle fight a possessed Epoch, Hoodoo's teammate on Force Magellan and the Superman/Captain Marvel of their world. (Mindmistress also met with Force Magellan in her current storyline here and here, where Hoodoo plays a pivotal part in the story.)
It's very, very fitting that a member of Magellan would take part in a transdimensional superhero team-up, and she completes our main group. (Although we'll have cameos of some of the old group, and an extended cameo from Dasien….as well as cameos of characters never seen before here, including some very, very familiar with some Drunk Duck readers.) Like Dasien, Stephen chose to introduce a new costume for Hoodoo before it was introduced in Hoodoo's original comic, Magellan.
So the cast is:
CAPTAIN PERFECT of BAD GUY HIGH
HOODOO of MAGELLAN…
And SPARKLING GENERATION VALKYRIE YUUKI!
We'll be opening a new web site soon here on Drunk Duck (and elsewhere) for CROSSOVERKILL, (and we'll announce its location here very soon) and starting the story by mid-October.
