Just wanted to say that I'm still around making A* : ). Not in Flash, but as a daily webcomic on my site at smbhax.com. Been messing around with using watercolor and all sorts of wacky stuff in it.

I'll be talking about my A* webcomic on the Villainland podcast

http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/t alkCast.jsp?masterId=78734&cmd=tc

tomorrow (Friday) night, 10:00 pm Eastern. You gotta register to listen in but eh me trying to think of things to talk about regarding my comic work for an hour or more should be amusing in a train wreck sort of way. :D

The A* Episode 7 trailer is on Newgrounds! This is a movie trailer for the latest animated episode of my hard sci-fi webcomic, "Supermassive Black Hole A*."

The full episode is too big to put on Newgrounds, but you can check it out on the A* site.

The A* Episode 6 trailer is on Newgrounds!

And the full episode, which is too big and chunky to fit here, is on the A* site.

Animation on episode 6 of Supermassive Black Hole A* has begun, so if you'd like to have your name--and web address, if ya got one--forever emblazoned across the episode's credit sequence, head to the support A* page and get your contribution in by this coming Monday (the 14th)!

I've slapped an A* Episode 5 Trailer on the Flash portal, a non-linear hyper-edit-style little trailer for sci-fi animated webcomic "Supermassive Black Hole A*'s" latest episode. The episodes themselves have got too big to fit on Newgrounds, but I didn't want to miss out on NG entirely! If you enjoy the trailer, check out the full episode on the A* site.

A* art and comics are now available as hand-signed prints. Look for the "buy signed print" link next to your favorite A* art gallery or daily comic image on the A* site: smbhax.com.

Supermassive Black Hole A* is now sucking at you on a daily basis in cinematic comics! There are already 10 episode 5 comics out, and comics covering the past animated episodes are available as well. Now you'll have something to read during the weeks in which each new animated episode is being produced!

Anyway I hope you'll enjoy "the dailies"; usually there will be multiple new ones per day, and you can always find the latest on the front page of the A* site.

A* Episode 4 made daily #8 on P-Bot's list for 6/24/2009.

Thanks P-Bot and voters! :)

Also, what would you think about new A* story material coming to you on a daily basis in non-animated, single-frame form--like a daily webcomic, pretty much, except that you'd usually be getting 3-5 single-panel updates per day. And then at the end of a month or so, it would all be animated, scored, and vocalized in the Flash version of the latest episode.

There's a demo (Episode 1 in "daily" form) and a debate right now about this proposal on the A* forum, so go check it out, and please let me know what you think of the idea!
