Q&Ages 25 & Up #27: September 2011

Previous Q&ANext Q&A

If there's one thing A25U readers are besides made of win, it's curious! This month, we have some more questions from the A25U community. Do I have what it takes to provide decent answers? Let's find out.

Question #1 - Loose Cannon asks:
Are we done with mini-Joes? Bring back more Star Wars or Marvel Universe stuff.

1337W422102 answers:
The Combat Heroes' story is over. Sorry it ran for so damn long.

Question #2 - Solid Strider:
I'm a huge fan of snow dios, any plans to do one this winter? The last one I recall was the Bionicle storyline.

1337W422102 answers:
I haven't thought that far yet, and weather is a real important factor in this, not to mention that I don't have much arctic-themed stuff. But I'll try to work something in!

Question #3 - Flint-wo2 ask:
Will we see Duke Nukem again???

1337W422102 answers:
Duke got screwed over back in #123 and joined the fray during the Combat Heroes story, eventually being critical in getting rid of Cobra's Size-Adjustment Ray System (aka SARS). Unfortunately, things didn't end so well for him.

Have we seen the last of him, though? Let me put it this way: Always Bet On Duke.

Question #4 - Night Viper 143 asks:
Besides Roadrock... who else are you going to be looking forward to including in your comic from the upcoming movie?

1337W422102 answers:
Wait, what? What makes you think I'm interested in anything from that line?

Question #5 - Meddatron asks:
What is one figure/character that has never had an action figure made of, that you wish they did because you either really would like to have in the comic or even have jokes that would work for character in the comic?

1337W422102 answers:
I'd spend four years travelling the Land of the Dead for a some Grim Fandango figures. I'd like to try to make my own Manny Calavera using Stikfas, but I don't think I'd do the character justice.

Hell, I dressed up as Manny for the last Montreal Comiccon, if that's any indication of my love for that game. Ah, how I long for the days when the LucasArts logo was an indication of quality, a medal to be earned.

Question #6 - Meddatron asks:
I know you're a video gamer, and I probably know this answer but got to hear it from the man. Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat? and why?

1337W422102 answers:
I could go into a long-winded rant about the nature of fighting games being inherently based in strategy, characters' moves needing to have priority over other moves but still maintain balance ("Will Dude's standing roundhouse go through Bloke's jumping uppercut?"), games should be more than just LOLGORE, diversity of characters instead of just pallette swaps, balance of characters (even boss fighters and without special moves) and all kinds of other shit, but I'll spare you the details.

But for me, it was Tuesday.

Question #7 - Meddatron asks:
Any chance we get a horror episode for Halloween, maybe akin to The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror?

1337W422102 answers:
Hell yeah, let's do it. I'll make a Halloween-themed Batteries Not Included, too.

Question #8 - Monkeywrench asks:
You have done several challenging comics like the epic silent one, classic #100 stop motion and the Noir story arc. What will be the next challenging comic?

1337W422102 answers:
I don't know yet. I'd like to keep things relatively simple though, since it's my last semester of university, but I'd be doing you guys a disservice if I didn't go all-out. One item on my to-do list is revisit a stop-motion series I used to before I'd started the comic. I had planned three story arcs but only made one. I'd like to remake it as a comic and finish off the story... eventually. It's not Joe-related after the first story, so it'd have to be an "Ages 25 & Up Presents" sorta deal.

Question #9 - Monkeywrench asks:
If there was going to be a live action film based on your Joeverse, what story arc would they use and why?

1337W422102 answers:
I have no idea. The Real American Teamup story with Captain America might work because it'd be easy to merchandise and might work in other countries due to the interpretation of the Cap being taken as social commentary. Maybe.

Question #10 - Monkeywrench asks:
Zombies, Werewolves or Whores?

1337W422102 answers:
Zombies are an overdone fad that needs to end. Werewolves are forever ruined by furfiends and Twilight kiddies.
Bring on the girls.

That's it for this month! Thanks again, gang.
