I'm putting together a crossover project for next year to run through multiple comics and hopefully benefit the Hero Initiative.  If you want to participate, e-mail me at karamesser@hotmail.com or PQ me on this site.
 
I've also started an IndieGoGo campaign to help me pay for artists for my projects.  Please go to the campaign site and donate some money.  I would appreciate it if you could give money.  There are some fun perks involved.  The site is here: http://igg.me/p/213480?a=408482
 
Also, Heroes Alliance, here on Drunk Duck, has begun uploading a story I wrote and many drew.  Sure, I drew more pages than anyone else, but there is some great art in it, too.  I wrote the story two years ago, so it's nice to see it finally going up.  It's updating daily and is epic in length.
 
Top page: This page actually speaks a lot to my own personal view of God.  It's always bugged me that in the Trinitarian depictions, so little attention has been paid to the third entity–the Holy Ghost.  I've come to believe this is because said aspect is the femininity in God, and people might be uncomfortable in ascribing femaleness to their male deity.  But the Holy Ghost is the nurturer and the Christian symbol of fertility, both aspects commonly seen as female in society.  Now, I did extrapolate here to give each aspect their own role as I can see it–the Father is the God of the Old Testament, who rains down fiery judgment on wrongdoers and rewards the ones who do right (hence, he's the voice to the people–telling them what to do and when they've done wrong); the Child (often the Son, but I like “child” better in a divine aspect) is obviously Jesus, the one who walked among men and who even in some of his last words defended the people who chose to crucify him (hence, the voice for the people, their staunchest defender); and the Mother is the aspect of God who is in everyone (going from the saying “filled with the Holy Spirit”) and therefore is a part of everyone (hence, the voice of the people, the collective perspective of society as a whole).
But I at least mention on this page that this is if one prescribes to Trinitarian theology.  I should have been more specific and said it was a kind of Trinitarian theology, but I already finished the page so I really don't want to go back and change it.  I've said before that I think this issue will be pretty divisive, anyways, considering it shows Hell as in the employ of Heaven.  I don't mean to offend, truly, and anybody that might feel that way, I would like to point out that this is partially my theology and partially fun concepts to me, to bolster a superhero origin story (and a response to a line in the first Ghost Rider movie).
 
Bottom page: I'm trying to write Seneschal as a kid, but one who is trying to be the authority (as kids often try to be).  Therefore, this questioning can seem to him like he's being hounded, but really it's the superheroes doing their jobs.  Fractal comes from a real-world aspect–since superheroes are the police in Fractal's world, they all need to know proper interrogation and investigation techniques.  Part of this is realizing that suspect number one is the one who found the body, because they are, at the start, the only one who the investigators know were near the individual.  Eidersown, meanwhile, has watched crime shows and come to the same conclusion.
And I put some weight into an earlier meeting here and added a suspect to the pool.  I say Hogan has the motive, being enraged at constant crossovers, especially in light of the recent trek that Tempore took.  And we don't know everything that happened to him in the Hillsfar Mountains, either–he looked like he'd snapped.  Besides, it's nice to extend Hogan's presence in the Capers.
