I did a little updating to the Cat-Men from Mars Cast Page, adding a few of our Martian friends and the Mysterious Lunarian!
Merry Christmas, everyone, and may this holiday season bring blessing and joy. And thank you for spending part of your holiday with Ginger and her friends.
I’m about halfway through with filling in the lost chapters of “Cat-Men from Mars”. I’ve been re-posting them at a rate of four or five per week and with luck I’ll be caught up with the current storyline by early February. Then I can go back and start filling in “Sky Terror of Weng Hu”!
For those trying to follow the “Cat-Men from Mars” storyline, it begins here with Chapter 1. As of this morning I have Chapters 1-31 re-posted. Then there’s a gap between there and the new material starting with Chapter 61. I also have a synopsis giving a brief rundown of the plot of the first 60 pages.
I’m afraid it’s another bye week for “Cat-Men From Mars”. Extra overtime at work and a couple of other projects made me postpone the new chapter until next week. But I have been filling in the earlier installments that the website ate last Fall and with luck we’ll be caught up with them in a couple month’s time. You can read the early chapters thus far starting here; and a synopsis of the first part of the Ginger’s space adventure here.
You also may have noticed a few changes to the site these past couple weeks. I replaced the boring title at the top with something a li’l more interesting. The grouping at the right hand side is a gang of some of my characters past and present, including Hannibal Tesla and Ginger DuPree. I hope to do more improvements to the site as I have time and ambition.
Another additon to the site is the Donate button on the left side. As Dr. Johnson so wisely observed, “No one but a blockhead ever drew sexy cat-girls except for money.” Or maybe he said something like that. Now you can contribute to this site and help keep this blockhead at the drawing board.
“But wait,” I hear you say; “what about those other projects he mentioned?” Well, the big one is that handsome fellow to the left who will be starring in a comic by Carlton Donaghe titled HERCULES UNLEASHED which will be a part of the Mojo Pop Comics Group. The Gods of Olympus are alive and well and living in the Greater Los Angeles area. Unbeknownst to his fans, Steve Atlas, mild-mannered international movie star and idol of millions, is actually the legendary demigod HERCULES, defending Hollywood from mythological menaces! But can even the tremendous strength of the Son of Jupiter stand up to the might of the Minotaur? More information to come.
I’ve been distracted by a couple commissions this past week and have been a bit lax in updating “Cat-Men from Mars”. I will, however have a fresh update Monday night. (He said)
And for those curious as to how Ginger got into this situation in the first place, I’ve been filling in the earlier chapters of the storyline starting here. And I have also posted a synopsis of the first sixty pages.
Eventually I will also be re-posting the lost chapters of “Sky Terror of Weng Hu”, the very first Hannibal Tesla story I ran. Set after Ginger’s Martian adventure, it tells how Hannibal and Ginger met while matching wits with a criminal mastermind with a dirigible.
I am also working on a project for a site called Mojo Pop Comics. I’ll have more details on that soon.
I’ve started re-posting the back chapters of Cat-Men From Mars and plan to do so at about a page per day until I bring it up to the present. I will also be posting new chapters, one per week.
Long-time readers will note I’ve done a new first chapter. When I started “Cat-Men from Mars”, I presented it as a flashback, with Ginger recalling her Martian adventure following her adventure with Hannibal in China. I decided it made more sense to eliminate the flashback frame and just start off with a new beginning.
I will also be re-posting “Sky Terror of Weng Hu”, probably once the back chapters of “Cat-Men” are all up.
