When is WonderCon 2018?

WonderCon is a Comic-con International show. They’re the good folks who also run Comic Con San Diego and trust us, they are REALLY nice and super helpful which makes them honorary Crewcreatures out the gate.

WonderCon Hours: Friday, March 23, 11:30AM-7PM, Saturday, March 24, 10AM-7PM, Sunday, March 25 10AM-5PM.

Star Beasts will be postponing all disco volleyball matches to attend WonderCon 2018 and there will be Pet Space Rocks. Oh yes. Yes there will.

What’s new at Planet Comicon 2018?

Last year Star Beasts offically met the comic universe at Planet. This year, the Condor Crew will launch our six issue series with…

Issue #1, STAR BEASTS, THE MIGHTY MENACE. 

If that doesn’t kick-asteroids, I don’t know what does?

Make sure to stop by our landing pad for free space stuff, fun galactic goodies, and custom sketches with space catchphrases! (Blast the Galactic Fantastic, Man!).

The rumor around the rocketblasters is that there will be convention exclusives.

Whoa. I know.

When is Planet Comicon?

Kansas City’s Planet Comicon is February 16 – 18 at Bartle Hall. Star Beasts will be postponing all disco volleyball matches to be there from noon to 7PM on Friday, 10AM to 7PM on Saturday, and 10AM to 5PM on Sunday!

Come see us at Kansas City’s premiere comic convention!

 

Get to Know the Crew! Flashtista

FLASHTISTA

Commander Flashtista is the Condor’s head of security, pilot, and Bandit’s best friend. It’s her job to maintain order and advise Captain Bandit on military issues when necessary. Being second in command, she often let’s her strong-willed-kick-in-the-pants attitude do the commanding for her.

Flashtista isn’t your average turtle. She has psychic abilities. When she was younger she used to predict the future, but she’s lost that skill due to an accident. Now she can only predict movement and levitate. Flashtista moves fastest when she’s floating and rarely ever walks. The crack in her shell is connected to her un-turtle like abilities.

The Condor’s pilot is a no-nonsense leader who tends to blast first and blast again later.

 

Get to Know the Crew! Karma

KARMA

Lieutenant Jamyang is a tiger and trained medic. Despite her large size, she is a gentle soul. Her commanding officer, Flashtista, gets frustrated with Karma’s “humbled warrior” approach to life. Karma, on the other paw, is proud to be a “peaceful healer.” She enjoys spreading goodness across the galaxy.

Due to her strength, natural fighting abilities, and risk taking past, Karma is often called into battle, but she tries to live up to her name. Lieutenant Jamyang does everything she can to help rather than to harm.

When she’s not tending wounds and saving the universe, she enjoys meditating and texting with her family back on Earth.

Let’s Make Comics! Snuffs’ Design…

Snuffs was another one of those characters who’s design just came super quick for me. I had a very clear idea of what I thought he should look like almost immediately- and I think that was the key to why the design came so fast!

SNUFFS_SKETCHI see Snuffs as the every-man family guy Dan Conner of Roseanne, with a healthy dose of Seymor Krelborn of Little Shop of Horrors, and his love of strange and exotic plants.

With these two characters in mind as inspiration… voila! Snuffs came to life! Admittedly, I find him to be one of my favorite characters to draw.

Get to Know the Crew! Snuffs

SNUFFS

Crewcreature Snuffs Lewis is practical from tail to snout. On the Condor, his job is to be a space farmer and feed his team. Every once in a while he grows experimental fruits and vegetables with more powers than just vitamins.

Snuffs is a the most useful, get-the-job-done creature on the Condor. Dr. Maria Curly appreciates the pig’s focused nature. They were both raised in the country and often spend time together.

Before coming to the Condor, Snuffs was a farmer on Earth. He decided to join the Creaturehood primarily for the paycheck. He has five hungry piglets back on the planet to feed. Crewcreature Lewis wears his gardening hat whether he’s in the dirt or not. His piglets gave it to him as a going away present.

Star Beasts Fan Art!

This is so cool, guys! We have our first ever piece of Star Beasts fan-created art, by the very prolific Katelinn, aka Ahsoka626, aka SquishyPanda626! Here it is…

21616375_2292013177491589_11824340246405674_n

I think she captured the personalities of Zayd, Karma, Maria, Clio, and Eleanor perfectly! Quite an accomplishment for not even having a chance to see them in action yet. If this isn’t motivation for me to finish the art for issue #1, I don’t know what is!

We would love to see more fan drawings from you all! You can tag your art on Instagram or Twitter (#starbeastscomic) or email us (starbeastscomic@gmail.com)!
