Well, in a small, small way: A* Episode 1 made P-bot's Top Entries from 04/15/2009 article as #10--the very bottom of the top! Yay! Thanks, P-bot--and those of you who watched and ranked Ep. 1, of course. ;D

A* Episode 1 is now back online--with sound! The voices are mine, and the music is from Kevin MacLeod's wonderful royalty-free music site, incompetech.com.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Normally you'd have to wait about three weeks for me to make the next episode, but since I've already got episode 2's animation done and just have to add sound, I should have that one for you by next week. If you're impatient, you can follow my progress in daily news updates and forum dribblings on the A* site, smbhax.com.

Episodes 1 & 2 are currently being retooled...with sound! Yay. Should have the first one ready to re-submit in a few days.

Episode 2 of the webcomic Supermassive Black Hole A* is now on Newgrounds, right over here. It picks up right where episode 1 left off, with explosive danger dangling over the head--or is it under the feet?--of our embattled space trucker, Vero.

Hope you enjoy it, but anyway let me know what you think!

The voiceover contest for A* episode 1 had an exciting conclusion, with a last-minute entry from José Sandoval nearly--but for a technicality--forcing a vote-off with front-runners Starschwar and ArchDuke.

The entries for both winning teams are permanently linked from the episode 1 page:

A* Episode 1 Voiceover Contest winners:

1st Place - Starschwar and ArchDuke
2nd Place - José Sandoval

Congratulations on the impressive efforts from all participants! I had a great deal of fun listening to the sonic interpretations of episode 1, and I look forward to hearing what people will come up with for episode 2.

The voiceover contest for A* Episode 1 is underway. Details can be found at the episode's home page. Hate the deep, dark silence of A*? Then check out the contest and add the voices, music, and sound effects you want, or just vote for your favorites.
