Talk About it Tuesday / Niobe and the world of Asunda

The world of Asunda is awesome. But it is awesome enough for HBO? Well HBO thinks so. The comics are certainly interesting but is there enough for HBO to create another Game of Thrones? This is where things get tricky. I assume they are interested in a many season epic in the video. But they might be interested in a three season epic. It really depends on how they cut and interpret the books and that's where things get tricky. 

There's a lot to work with here that can stretch the length of an episode (and season) but there might not be enough to set it up for a 13 episode standard season if that's the path they want to take. Let's say they take all 5 books at once and intersperce scenes within each episode. That's a bit tricky because the books have different timelines. So it would make more sense if they are arranged one book at a time. But I can't quite figure out the order, other than The Untamed and She is Life being the starting comics and the others being after the events of She is Life. 

I'm sure the author and creators know what to do, at any rate. Let's hope HBO doesn't change what people like about the main character Niobe.  

Talk About It Tuesday / Kamikaze animated

I found a really good, consistent webcomic that’s been around for years with really impressive art. Heck the season it won a Glyph was the season I read and covered for the show. It’s a pretty exciting story though I feel that the most recent chapters covers the hero portion of the story whereas I read the origin story and tone setters. The whole premise of the story is that Markeesha is the world’s first hero in 200 years after the apocalyptic wars or something like that. I don’t know what made the world into Trigun territory but the main character has to become a heroine working for Kamikaze because… I haven’t gotten there yet. But she does because of the Midnight Tales interlude.

There is an old saying; you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I think it’s supposed to be a warning on the fickle nature of public support but it could also mean that to be a hero you have to die as one. So either she dies doing something heroic or hasn’t become the villain by the time of Midnight Tales.

Either way, I’ll take a greater look at the story during my abundant break time. I think it’s got staying power.
