I know I said I’d reveal the replacement for Friday Night Fights during this week’s Jake & Leon but I didn’t have a comic idea until this weekend…and then my Uncle passed way early Saturday morning and I had nothing in the way of creative energies. I’m connected to two close families, one on my mother’s side, which my uncle came from, and one on my father’s side. It’s been one crisis after another the past few years. I also didn’t do a Clutter Report since that is also done on Saturdays, but I should have that for next week.
In this week’s review set we’ll be finishing Robotech Warriors before bringing in the new ongoing Return To Macross spinoff, Academy Blues. As for feature articles, between family issues and dental issues I don’t know what my week is going to be like so I’m not completely sure. I do want to watch and review the released pilot for Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with the hopes it will at least be a good story since it’s a poor adaptation right out of the gate. And I want to discuss the trailers that came out of San Diego Formerly About Comics Con (SDFACC), but it depends on how much writing time I get this week. And on Friday I am hoping to unleash my new article miniseries. But I said I’d announce it on Sunday and here it is. I just wish I had the logo ready for you. Anyway, remember this?
Well it’s not the only production bible I’ve managed to come across. And possibly starting this week (although with current events I might have to move it to next week) I’ll be doing the same for…
A long time ago I looked at some of the early ideas for Star Trek: The Next Generation and I think that article led me to the writer’s guide for writers for the show. It should be a fascinating subject. And I’ll be starting on that. Here’s a link to the Memory Alpha wiki article on it, which includes a link to the pdf file I have, so you can read along when we finally start. This is the final first season draft, which means by then Wesley was a boy but there might still be enough differences to compare with the actual series. Like I said I hope to start it this Friday, but it depends on scheduling.
Hope you all have a great week and say a prayer (or whatever it is you do) for my Aunt, their kids, and their grandchildren. It’s going to be a rough time and they need all the support they can get.
