SUPERGIRL, POWERGIRL, BATGIRL - NEW SCI FI COSTUMES?

This blog is full of sci fi images and concept art, including futuristic battle armor and other mecha armor costumes. I found the following images online a short while ago and decided to share - since I haven't posted anything new in quite a while. The first beautiful image of Supergirl is a classic digital painting by a DA artist known as Tariq12. And the second pic is by Sani Casa - he drew some women of DC Comics [Powergirl, Supergirl, Robin, Batgirl and Wonder Woman] in an anime style, while giving them sexy sci fi costumes. I'm not too sure about the history of the female Robin shown below amidst the DC Comics timeline; however, I've always felt that Robin [or Robyn] is pretty much a girls name. The third image is by Valzonline and he drew the funny motivational / demotivational poster of Batman,Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and the Joker [I added the words]. And the last image shows a Batman joke / comic strip, recently posted over on the DSNG facebook page.

OVERVIEW OF DSNG CHRONICLES BOOK 8: THE HIT LIST!

This past week, DSNG Book 8: The Hit List was released over on Amazon.com!
[Link to the new ebook is right HERE].
I decided to write this blog article to give some insights into the new sci fi ebook, while showcasing a few character bios that will help you to envision some of the individuals featured in the pages of the new story.

Following the events of DSNG Book 7, this new ebook commences with some scenes of Prince Theo, Prince Azzar's younger brother. Soon the readers are transferred to the aquatic world of planet Macur; and there, 3 Zarchon Mystic Knights are assembled and they are contemplating some issues pertaining to a robbery that took place in one of their citadels a few weeks ago. And soon those three angry Mystic Knights have to travel to planet Avera, in order to confront Prince Azzar....
BTW, the entire story so far [from Book 1 to Book 8] has spanned about 3 weeks. And since DSNG is a dynamic sci fi series, you have to always bear in mind that the described events are all connected, and the engaging story is continuous.


Beyond the familiar featured cast members in this story [like Prince Azzar and Commander Yatalia, who are shown together on the cover of Book 8], there are some brand new characters that make their debut in this new 630-page ebook. Amongst them are: Markus The Butcher, and Deelilah Kerrchof.
Markus is a gritty red-skinned hitman from planet Entrados; he is aggressive, wild and quite snarky [I explained what the colloquial term "Snarky" means, within the paragraphs of another blog article, over Here]. His favorite energy weapon is a large butcher's knife, shown in one of the pics below.

On the other hand, Deelilah is a sultry venture capitalist, a filthy-rich pink-skinned lady from planet Scalata [the original article that talks about the intriguing four-armed Scalatan race is over HERE]. Deelilah is also very dramamatic, loving to over-emphasize herself in a flamboyant manner, almost like an actress in a live Victorian-era stage play.

 


Two other returning characters worthy of notice are Jut-Hun Hundduron - the red-skinned mob boss, who oversees the operations of the Gorilla rebel militia on planet Avera; and also, Jut-Hun's wife, Mieka. Although they are married, these two characters have a very interesting relationship. And despite the fact hat they trust one another, they also keep secrets from each other. And they argue. A lot.

Plus Jut-Hun and Mieka have an extended conversation within the storyline that will definitely make you LOL.
Amidst all of the dynamic events going on in this new sci fi adventure, I've interwoven the underlying themes of true friendship, dependability and loyalty. And the story also showcases the debatable issue of trust, following a betrayal.

In order to get an idea of what I'm implying, consider these questions:

Can you really trust a friend that told you a blatant lie, even if they did so just to protect you from pending danger? Could you ever forgive a friend who seemingly betrayed your sincere confidence and literally stabbed you in the back with the dagger of deceit twice, over a short period of time? Or would the initial betrayal be the sharp trigger that sets you on a relentless path of retribution?
And for you merciless readers, consider this: does forgiveness have a price tag? if the disloyal friend gave you a million dollars after the lie, would you forgive them??

Those are scenarios that we can sit and talk about all day. But watching the outcome of the decisions made by the characters in the DSNG sci fi series is also another means of analyzing the various questions on trust that were presented above.

Here is the overview of the new sci fi ebook:

_______________________________________________________________________

The dynamic sci fi adventure continues with the eighth installment of the DSNG series!

Following the theft of the collection of regal heirlooms colloquially tagged as Pandora’s Box, Prince Azzar Omenus and the other members of the Averan royal family are plagued with anger and remorse. Yet there seems to be no time to fully seek out the mercenary that stole those regal treasures in recent times, due to the arrival of a powerful alien triad. Lord Ja’Kar and two of his stalwart alien brothers, fellow Mystic Knights, soon show up at the Imperial Palace after executing a powerful teleportation spell that transfers them from one of the colonized moons of their aquatic home world of Macur to the office area of the Prince of Avera. Thus Prince Azzar, Commander Yatalia and the National Security Advisor, Colin Hammond, are forced to suspend their ongoing meeting in order to confront the three angered Mystic Knights.

The reason for the impromptu visit is soon revealed, as incriminating evidence is brought to light, which showcases the fact that a black-ops agent from the Centura [the military force of Avera] had infiltrated a citadel on planetoid Yantos and stolen a conceptual Pythorion hyper jet, while killing a host of Zarchon disciples, alien men that serve Lord Ja’Kar.

Hastily, Prince Azzar and Yatalia are drawn into an arduous investigation, as they strive to find out the truth behind the murders and the theft of the Pythorion hyper jet. The incriminating piece of evidence that appears to have drawn the three Mystic Knights across the stars was a crumpled microchip wafer with serial number 23444-0215GT. And that microchip [sourced from a gauntlet device traditionally utilized by Alpha Senturi soldiers] was created by an Averan firm called Genofyre Incorporated. And the diligent tracking of the trail of that microchip becomes the catalyst that leads to a chain of  explosive events, which soon unfold across the various mega states of Avera, while the identity of the brazen felon is sought out.

Elsewhere, a mysterious gritty hitman named Mr. R.C. Smith visits Avera and he is an ally of the Gorilla militia mob boss named Jut-Hun. And Mr. Smith appears to be focused on a mission of death and destruction, as he sets his merciless eyes upon another visitor from planet Taran named Craig Cunningham.

Meanwhile, as Azzar and Yatalia strive to hunt down the individual that was behind the murders and the robbery on the foreign moon Yantos, the heroes are also shocked when giant black serpent creatures start showing up in several civilian areas, devouring human flesh and crushing the large infrastructure without remorse. As the bewildering destruction in the heart of the Averan cities unfolds, the Prince and his allies are unaware that the Zarchon military forces are planning to attack them with a fleet of over thirty Class3 dropships, massive Destroyers that will blanket planet Avera with a heavy nuclear bombardment—due to the theft of the precious Pythorion hyper jet.

No one seems to fully understand what is transpiring behind the scenes. Yet as the chaos continues to unfold, it becomes obvious to the Prince of Avera that he may be contending with powerful alien forces that are far beyond his comprehension…

WALLPAPERS OF SERGEANT TAMORA CALHOUN! [FROM DISNEY'S "WRECK IT RALPH" 2012 MOVIE]

Ah, the joys of an animated movie, presented in 3D.... Often those big budget productions hit the nail on the head, as the studios and animators come up with something that appeals to a mass audience. And Disney's Wreck it Ralph fits into that category. Yes, I did see it, over the past weekend. But I only saw it for one reason: Heroes Duty [a sci fi arcade video game]; and specifically, I wanted to see Sergeant Tamora Calhoun, one of the female protagonists in the new animated movie. Although she had a B-role in the 3D-flick, I enjoyed her performance so much that I did a fan art poster of her [shown on the right].

Tamora was perfectly rendered, as a sexy & strong character; even her "walk cycles" were done in a sensual manner, much better than the cycles you find in some modern Third-Person-Shooters, MMOs & fantasy video games.
Being a bad-ass Space Marine Commander, Tamora has one of the craziest / saddest back-stories in cartoon history. I don't want to spoil it for you; you'll just have to see it to believe it in the movie theater. Anyway, Tamora later has a budding romance with FixIt Felix, another quirky character in this animated movie.  

Check out the numerous wallpapers featuring Sergeant Calhoun, showing her and her various poses / gritty facial expressions:
