Tyrannis

Leader of the Decimators. Tyrannis wants total domination over everything that lives. Those that don’t fall in line, are terminated. The reason Tyrannis believes this is unknown to him but encountering the princesses has unlocked memories that were thought erased by his creator. Tyrannis wants answers. But, more so he wants to eliminate any threat to his and followers well being. If humans and princesses are in his way, so be it.

Penelope
Age 16.

Kingdom: Pierotte.

“Pretty” Penelope is the daughter of Queen Aleta and High King Phillip and is the current High Princess of the Five Kingdoms. Originally from the Valley kingdom of Pierotte, Penelope comes across as a judgmental elitist. The reason she’s elitist is because that’s what she’s been raised to be. All her life she’s been told, “a princess must do this…” and be an obedient wife and queen. She wants to win the Midsummer Recital so she can make a statement that she’s an individual, not a doll on a pedestal. To bring some excitement into her life she disguises herself and sneaks out of the palace from time to time to see what the people she’s ruling are actually like.

So how does the robot invasion change Penelope? Back us on Kickstarter to find out.

 

Clarisse copy

Clarisse

Age: Age 14

Kingdom: Castillia.

Shy but loyal, Clarisse is the perfect best friend. She’s always ready to help out her friends and is good at keeping secrets. (Especially Zara’s) Clarisse is also clever and can come up with clever solutions at a snap of the finger. Which comes in handy during a fight with giant robots. When she’s not covering for Zara, Clarisse enjoys drawing and painting.

Wheeler copy

Wheeler

Wheeler is a Decimator who is sick of the war he’s engaged in with the Centurions. Coming off the assembly line smaller then his fellow Decimators made Wheeler less effective in combat so the Decimator Warlord Tyrannis made him his whipping bot. Sick of Tyrannis’ cruelty Wheeler runs away to the Beyond (or to humans, the Forbidden Woods).

Wheeler gets turned into a robot dragon when he hears Zara’s song. He makes a deal to be her animal for the Midsummer Recital if she’ll change him back. Zara agrees and Wheeler makes his first friend. However, things don’t go as planned. And Tyrannis hates defectors.

Want to see the rest of Wheeler’s story. Back us on Kickstarter.

Zara:

Age: 13

Kingdom: Tanglewylde

Zara idolizes her ancestor Queen Kyra, who saved the five kingdoms of Harmonia during the “Days of Fire” as the last dragon rider. This, along with a desire to upstage her fellow princesses, is she journeys to the Forbidden Woods to find a baby dragon for the Midsummer Recital.

There she meets Wheeler and discovers a destiny that will make her just as important (perhaps greater) then her ancestor, Kyra.

Yes, you read that headline correctly.

When I started this site, if you told me I’d write about  Archie Comics I’d have called you insane. Even as a kid, I always thought Archie was the comic your parents wanted you to read. He was stuck in 1950. But time’s change and so do publishers.  These past few years Archie Comics has taken steps to show they’ve moved past “Sugar Sugar.”  “Afterlife with Archie,” (A zombie apocalypse starring Archie) reviving their super heroes as the Dark Circle, and killing off the main character, have shown that Archie is a company that is not afraid of taking risks. The latest move is a crossover with Predator. Published by Dark Horse Comics,  is “Archie vs. Predator” the most absurd crossover since “Archie meets the Punisher“? Lets find out.

Warning: Opinion

For people who don’t like bullies, comic fans like to bully. Over the weekend, J. Scott Campbell and Erik Larsen voiced their opinion on super hero costumes being redesigned. Specifically, Wonder Woman’s. Their comments set off a firestorm. Some of it was polite, specifically when it was creator debating creator. But some of the comments from fans were condescending, childish, and so disrespectful that Mr. Larsen decided to leave Twitter. (more…)
