Flaws Every Day

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 25, 2021



We're always advising people to give their characters flaws. But why? Is it just so they'll be relatable and not perfect/boring?

That is a good reason, for sure.

Is it so you'll know how they're supposed to react in certain situations?
“I wrote in my ...

Captain America Civil War

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 18, 2021



I've compared “Avengers Infinity War” to the classic movie cliffhanger in The Empire Strikes Back.

But the Marvel Cinematic Universe actually pulled off an almost-“Empire”-level story a couple years before that, in Captain America: Civil War.

The MCU started off with multiple movies setting up Iron Man ...

Days Unlike Any Other

Interesting.

It is quite amusing how Valentine's Day 2021 landed on a Sunday, a day without a new blog entry. Friday was the celebration of the Lunar New Year–the Year of the Ox.

In previous years, both occasions would have drawn massive crowds of people. There would have ...

The Loner

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 13, 2021




Silent types can be very alluring. They don't really engage with other people, they are content to be on their own, they have developed their own special, unique manner of wading through life independently, which makes them interesting. They are their own kind of strong, even if they are ...

Tooning With Banes - The Horizon

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 11, 2021



The Horizon

Even though I've been drawing/cartooning for longer than I can remember, there are major holes in my knowledge. Even after a lifetime of drawing, and making hundreds of webcomic pages.

Luckily I found some great info while cruising around the ‘Net.

You may already know this ...

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 10, 2021

The Most Marvelous DC Comics Character (I Only Learned About Recently): Zatanna Zatara

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 8, 2021




It is always a good time when I learn about a fully-fleshed out character with a history, family tree, team affiliation, famous love-interest, and storyline. It is almost more of a mystery when a new character is discovered so late in the game I have to question why their existence ...

Star Trek Economics

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 4, 2021



I just finished a rewatch of The Mandalorian series and one of the things I thought about was the vicious profiteering and scramble for money (or ‘credits’, or valuable metals or what have you) that indicates what kind of economy is at work in that show.
