ghost academy


Chapter 3 of Volume 1 of StarCraft: Ghost Academy is supposed to cover pages 59-96, or so. It's definitely starting on page 59, what with Chapter 2 ending on page 58 and all, but I have some wiggle room with ending it at page 96.

Anyhow, today I wrote up to page 82. I also went to karate and fighting class. I will write pages 83-96 tomorrow.

A spoonerism is a transposition of sounds within a single phrase frequently used to comic effect. The term is named for Anglican cleric Rev. William A. Spooner (1844-1930), Warden of New College, Oxford, known for his frequent slips of the tongue. Legend has collected many of his attributed slips into this unlikely line:

"You have tasted two whole worms, hissed all my mystery lectures, and have been caught fighting a liar in the quad."

Farscape art

Will Sliney has a blog. Will is the artist for the upcoming Farscape: Strange Detractors miniseries, and also the Cover B artist for Farscape: D'Argo's Lament. He's also a great guy.

He's also doing the covers for the special convention editions of the initial miniseries, the first of which I mentioned in this post.

Will posted the uncolored line art for the cover on his blog.
