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!

First of May

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

No blog posts since April 1? Definitely time to fix that! Got a few things which may be of interest…

At Best Webcomics, an interview with me about Station V3!

At Quark Comics, a new episode (or two, if you haven’t been there in a while) of PodWarp: 1999!

At TopWebcomics, a new bonus strip with the return of Rumormonger Idol!

At Lulu, a promo code (APRSHIP20) good through midnight tonight for 20% off and free mail shipping. (Useful if you were interested in ordering some Station V3 books!)

Books and Podcasts and Things!

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

One of the reasons I finally finished the second Station V3 book last year is that my niece Eva enjoyed the first one and wanted to know when there would be more. She’s also drawn this for me, set on a similar space station:

I’m looking forward to seeing more of that station! :)

Speaking of the Station V3 books, Lulu has a promo code good today for 20% off if you’re interested in getting one (or both) of them – enter code FEBWORLD20 when you check out. (Promo code expired now – books still available, though!)

In other news, PodWarp: 1999 is back! Check out the first episode of season 2, Birthed By Machinery! There’s a full crew on this one, including David, Jim, Mark, and Ben (and me)!

And if you’re only reading the Station V3 blog for Rumormonger Idol news, vote for Station V3 at TopWebcomics today to see a sprite strip where one of the judges is trying to figure out who should go on to Round 1!

A few resolutions for 2016:

  • Keep updating Station V3!
  • Keep updating Silence in the Darkness on Q16.
  • Update Z7 and Ebb’s Children occasionally.
  • Work on the third book so it’s done this year instead of 8 years from the last one!
  • Draw some guest strips/fan art if the opportunity presents itself.
  • Update the voting bonuses a little more often!

To get started on that last one, there’s a new bonus up now, where Linton gets a suspicious package – Vote for Station V3 at TopWebcomics to see it!

Four Comics and a small Site Update

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

It’s a four update day today! It’s been a while, but this was the last chance for Z7 and Ebb’s Children to update for 2015. (And Silence in the Darkness on Q16 updated too!) :)

Also, I’ve updated the “About the Comic” page – if you’re a new reader (or even if you aren’t) take a look for a brief guide to what’s been going on here!
