Today marks 20 years since the first Station V3 comic went up!

Time for a big celebration! (Nothing else is going on today, right…?)

2022, Social Media, and Other Things

Saturday, December 31st, 2022

So there’s the first full calendar year of Station V3 updates since 2013! I hope you’ve all enjoyed it. To mark the occasion, even the spinoffs have updated today, for the first time since 2017. Check them out at Z7, Ebb’s Children, and Silence in the Darkness on Q16!

In other news, you may (or may not?) have noticed that I’ve removed the Twitter and Facebook feeds on the main page here. I’m pretty much done with Twitter, and there didn’t seem to be much point in posting updates on the Station V3 Facebook page, since Facebook didn’t seem to be in any hurry to show those updates to very many people. You can find me now on Mastodon.

Another change this past year, I’ve finally switched to using a drawing tablet regularly instead of pen and paper. The switch for daily updates happened back in September. I had tried a Bamboo tablet a few (10?) years back, and drew a few Z7 strips with it, but the disconnect between drawing on the tablet and seeing it on the screen didn’t work very well for me. The XP-Pen tablet works better for me, and makes a nice second monitor when I’m not using it for drawing.

So let’s bring on 2023!

12 Months

Monday, December 5th, 2022

So that’s 12 straight months of daily updates now! The last time I did that was 2015-2016. The next goal, which is only a few weeks away, is to complete a full calendar year from January 1 to December 31, which I last did in 2013.

I’d say “getting back to normal” but we know how that goes with Station V3… :)

It’s now been 19 years since the first Station V3 comic went online.

Time flies!

Blanchland Blues by Tom Dell’Aringa

Wednesday, February 9th, 2022

Some of you may remember Tom Dell’Aringa’s webcomic/graphic novel Marooned* – If you liked that, I recommend checking out his new book Blanchland Blues available now at Amazon! As I said in my review there:

If you like fun sci-fi stories with spaceship pilots, robots, aliens, inhospitable planets, excitement, and corruption, then you’ll definitely want to check this one out!

John MacAlister and his robot partner Alvis are in a tough spot at the beginning of the story after their ship crashes. The job they’re desperate enough to take after that of course turns out not to be as simple as it sounds!

* If you don’t remember Marooned, he’s got it available as a free PDF download – also recommended!
