If you haven't heard, the comic strip, Table Manners, is now cleaned-up and looking brand new! It's all digital now!
Dang it! I need to get to publishing these updates more frequently! At least my Facebook page is getting stuff. Don't even ask about my Twitter. The good news is that I'm still here! And HOLY HELL!
Table Manners? We've got a full year of 'em! I'll be posting a new section in my gallery for the comic strip.
Dark Matter? Here we go...In my absence from my own website, I've completed a second novel, the first comic of an upcoming mini-series starring Dark Matter a few years before my first novel Dark Matter: Code Red, and I got back into animating by myself and am producing the short film Dark Matter: After Rising. My second novel is titled Dark Matter Rises and takes places only days after Code Red.
In the final weeks of 2018, my team began production on an animated series called Knights of Belmont. This is our first comedy series and we wanted to release it before my short film to showcase what we're about, but that more or less didn't happen. Everything is still in full production for the series, though, but we did start it up rather slowly as we were going through the holiday season.
A final note: Team Dark Matter, otherwise known as TDM Studios, WILL be receiving a new name soon. I feel that it is imperative as we want it to reflect our comedic nature. Our overall goal is to provide entertainment, with comedy being our main genre. Obviously, as evidenced by the Dark Matter franchise, we will work in other genres, but comedy is our focus for the most part.
Guys, these updates were always rough before December of 2018. I've run on a 2012 laptop that just couldn't work with me these past couple of years. A friend of mine helped me build a new PC, so productions WILL speed up. Weebly now runs smoothly and I can actually make this news post flawlessly, so these WILL be more frequent. TDM Studios has a heavy year ahead, with talks of actually putting out a long awaited Table Manners animated series, a dream of mine since my days running Taylor Productions in 2013.
That's all for this evening! Stay tuned!
Ben Riley and Raine Harolds have been called to the jungle planet, Xerofia. Saltu City, the planet's ancient capital, in under threat from an inevitable volcanic eruption. To make things worse, there may be an individual responsible for the sudden activity. Two Knights are in for rough fight!
Available now as an eBook via Amazon Kindle!
"Dark Matters: A City In Peril" goes live tomorrow on Amazon's Kindle app! This story follows two Knights from "Dark Matter: Code Red" as they journey to Xerofia to save an ancient city! The link will be shared tomorrow!
A DMU planet. Havana is a planet completely covered in a savanna-like environment. Water is scarce, but present. There are humanoid life-forms that form tribes across the land. Havana has a single uninhabited moon.
First space art of the year! It's a planet being engulfed in radiation. Does it have anything to do with The Devil's Doorway? No. It's not Viridi Mortem. It's a random planet. Is it part of the Dark Matter Universe? I don't know. You decide.
#2 is here! There is audio distortion until just after the 7 minute mark. If you want to fast forward to that point, you won't miss much. We apologize. The gain was at +40...too high...
Dark Matter: Code Red is out. Dark Matters? That's the ongoing series that I write that explores the Dark Matter Universe, which is huge.
Last month, the short (Aeris Heist) released went on about Amber Harkins and where she was during the events of Code Red. Heads up, REMEMBER her. She's got a HUGE role during the fifth or sixth book, though the actual book is undecided. There's a lot of content that I have to go through until that time, so, hell, it could be book nine or ten. I don't know.
This month's short was Dark Below. I wanted to dive into the world of the Agents. Real talk: They're badasses. Where do they lie on the totem pole of badasses? They're simply a tier above Alliance special forces. It's really not simple. They're pretty important. Regardless, Dark Below really gives them some story. I'm actually really trying to get this news post done, so for the sake of time, the link for the short is in the Literature area of this website.
Wrapping up this post, Team Dark Matter has a podcast airing Saturday night at 8 p.m. Central Standard time. The following weekend will be another Table Manners comic strip, so get ready for that, too. You know? 'Cause I brought back Table Manners. 'Cause I'm awesome.
