NR/WG Updates Topic

 

To maintain a more consistent stream of new content, Wolfy and I are starting the Nova Refuge and Wulfgard Weekly Update Topics. Every Sunday we will try to post something related to either one or both of the universes. Yes, sometimes there will be a WG update and no NR, and sometimes vice versa - maybe a whole new comic page or story chapter or a preview of an upcoming book, or maybe just a new sketch or a new page on the wiki - but the point is, we will try our best to post something.

 

These weekly updates will be posted as a reply in this thread and the Wulfgard equivalent, and larger updates will also be posted on the respective universe's news blog. You can discuss all of the updates here and/or leave a comment on the blog post, but if there's an appropriate topic elsewhere on the forum (for example, the topic about the comic for comic updates) we would prefer you to use that, and we will try to link to it in the update.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

This week's update is simply the first page of the now-underway final chapter of the LEGO comic "The Takeover of Mordark"! I'm gonna finish this thing if it kills me.

Haha, alright, nice!  I'm glad to see that you're still doing this. :D  This comic was one of the things that attracted to this website and convinced me to make a profile in the first place (to no one great surprise I'm sure. :P )

You don't want to know how many times I've read this comic. Once its all over, I'll be sure to do it all again. A victory lap of nostalgia. :P

I've read it a ton of times myself, to keep the characters straight and make sure I tie up all the loose plot ends. Too bad there are so many useless scenes in the series, and one entire useless issue (4: The Great Hunt). Maybe one day I'll make an edited version of the complete series. Anyway... this Sunday's page!

Have you ever thought about printing them out and selling them as a physical comic book? Or is there copyright issues because it's a Lego comic?

Yep, I've strongly considered it. I'm not entirely clear on the legal issues, but I've seen other independently published LEGO books. I currently have plans to start a fundraiser on my site for the publication of the first Wulfgard novel & comic, and perhaps include publication of a "Takeover of Mordark Complete Revised Edition" as a sort of "stretch goal" for extra funding, if possible. :P We'll see how it pans out...

The twelve year old in me is pretty much over the moon about TTOM. The first two pages look great, and I can't wait to read it all in one sitting when it's done.

It's that time again... This Sunday I posted a Wulfgard comic instead of TTOM, but I may post a TTOM page on Wednesday to make up for it. In the meantime, I've updated the Nova Refuge home page with an extended description of Warrior Born, including photos of the book and a sample chapter!

Nova Refuge: The Legend of Saber-Scorpion, Book 1:
WARRIOR BORN

Synopsis

"Soldiers are Made... Warriors are Born."

Three hundred years ago, planet Earth was destroyed by the supernova of her own life-giving sun. What was left of humanity now dwelled on Terra Nova, in the new and foreign galaxy called Nova Refuge. On this new world, humanity was given a chance to learn from the mistakes of its past and start anew, to make a better future.

Instead, we made war.

At first the new human nations were able to work together to fight back the Natives, the beings they found already dwelling in this new galaxy. Once the Xenocide War was over, however, rivalries began to grow stronger. CONON, the Council of Nations of Nova Refuge, was formed to resolve disputes by mediation, to keep peace among men. For in this age of devastating new weaponry, and in this galaxy full of hostile Natives eager to take advantage of any dissent, a stellar war between the major human factions is humanity's greatest fear...

And one man's greatest dream.

And now, in every major human nation, projects are underway to bring war back to its founding point: to find, raise, and train the ultimate soldiers... the Warriors Born.

Sorry for the lack of comic updates; I'll get back on track with that soon... In the meantime, guess what's been added to the Saber-Scorpion's Lair Shop?

For the custom emblem, do you want us to make it on something like Corel and then send it to you? Or would something like this be alright?

A high-resolution vector type drawing would be best, but I think I can work with that. Awesome drawing BTW.

 

 

 

Also, posted a new comic page today! Yes, it's just a single frame... sorry:

I Like this comic so much. I've read it a lot. I read it several times before I signed up on the forums.

 

On another note, I wish you could add Nova Refuge Victorian/Zygbari/Yavakaran/Xarkonian Regulars in the shop Scorp.

I would make some epic battles with that.

So...I write stuff!  Yay.
