New superhero comic, Spark!

bettersupes:

Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. Writer Ted Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!

The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who loves engineering, and uses her telekinetic powers to build and take things apart with her mind. She calls this power her spark!

As Spark, the world’s youngest superhero, she’s a junior member of a superhero team while also trying to live a normal life. Can Lucia juggle her friends and family while also saving the world from supervillains?

We’re posting a 15-page standalone comic here on tumblr to give readers an idea of what the book would be like.

On the future of School of Thrones (and other Things)

Hello internet! I wanted to take a minute out of preproduction for Muzzled the Musical to address some questions I know y’all have about School of Thrones and what’s going on with our channel and the like. It’s totally our fault for not addressing them sooner, we apologize! In spite of appearances, we have actually been very busy behind the scenes.

I know it seems like we’ve been ignoring SoT and not doing anything, but we’ve almost had season two set up…twice. Lots of work in the background has been going on. There’s a lot of moving parts to coordinate in getting projects of any size off the ground, and we’re not in charge of all of them. The first time we faced an unexpected contractual issue that got resolved just in time to see Google stop funding premium channels, which left a lot of companies in a lurch. The second time we were so, so close to closing a deal…and then the PTB decided to narrow the focus of the channel in a way that excluded our content. Which. Bummer. We haven’t given up, though, because we all love it so much. It’s basically all we talk about parties. We are a lot of fun at parties.

"elflock" is a tangled lock of hair, as from "hair matted as if by elves." I’m pretty sure they mean the Brownie-ish kind, but I really like to imagine the Middle Earth elves compulsively running around matting dwarf hair, and the dwarrow denying them this joy, and that’s why they hate each other.
