Wandering Star now available online!

There are a fairly modest number of comic book authors who I follow religiously, who are consistently good enough that I'm willing to buy anything they write. High on this list is the_resa. Ever since her start doing a column called simply The Cartoonist in Amazing Heroes magazine, I've been a fan of hers. And when she went pro, she did it with a bang, producing a medium-length (21 issue) story called Wandering Star that, for a couple of years there, was the book I would look forward to. It's a science fiction story told on a very human level, giving a taste of what's it's like to be a hero in a war, and why it's not all it's cracked up to be. The best adjective to describe the story is probably "melancholy" -- it has its fun parts and its dark parts, but overall it's the tale of a world that is changing, not entirely for the better.

Teri's life has been in flux for a long time, and it's been a very, very long wait for her next story, Darklight. But that is apparently finally on the way out the door, and in honor of the occasion, Teri is putting Wandering Star online, on The ChallenderWood. She'll be putting up one issue a month there, so new readers can finally see this long-out-of-print tale. She's putting it up in Flash format, which has its pros and cons, and it does lose something at web resolution, but it's still a story well worth reading. So check it out, and keep an eye open for Darklight...
