Nerf guns "for girls" that really kick ass!

Earlier this week on FB, I lamented on the line of Nerf weapons "for girls" that Hasbro offers.  I mean, bleh.  So unthreatening and unintimidating!  Dammit, if they're going to make Nerf guns "for girls", then let's make some that will actually scare the crap out of the boys!  What the hell good will it do to make Nerf guns "for girls" if they're going to be these decorative and cutesy-poo but otherwise useless weapons of "war"? 

So with that, below are my suggestions for real Nerf guns "for girls" that will have the boys running from the yard!  They're Nerf guns "for boys", but repurposed with my suggestions for a name, and coloring suggestions to go with the name, and the likely response from the victims of being taken down by these much more serious "girl guns"! 

As you'll see by the name suggestions, they are meant not just to be physically intimidating, but also with a psychological element added in.  On top of that, the "girl guns" will fire darts and bombs with "Hello Kitty" faces on the tips to further add to the humiliation of having "gotten it" with a "girl gun".  Muahahahahahahahaha!  (Many thanks to FB friend Laura Diaz for the suggestion of the Hello Kitty darts).

If any of my FB friends who are artists want to make art of women weilding these weapons, then please have at it.  If I think of other "girl guns that kick ass", then I'll post those as well.  >:-)

A sneak "sneak preview" of TMA#1! :-D

After years of dreaming and planning the first issue of The Mighty Andromeda #1, we finally have the first chapter done!  DONE!  Yes, my good, patient little nerdlings, the first six pages are READY! 


The boss is currently crafting a .pdf file of the first chapter, plus some pin-ups and a thank-you page.  Since this is our very first "sneak preview" of the book, he wants it to be extra special when it's good and ready to be shown to the world.  However, his Director of Social Media Marketing (pointing to self) is a tad eager to get the ball rolling, so he gave me a couple of pages to post to my blog while he puts the final touches to the sneak preview.  So what you're about to see is a "sneak sneak preview".  :-D

Even as a sneak sneak preview, this does mean that this is the first viewing of official comic pages of TMA#1.  So what this means is that


Sorry, if I busted your eardrums there, but as you all know, I've been waiting to post those words for quite a while.  :-)

I was going to also make this blog post a comic update, but then I thought, "eh, let's just run with the comic pages instead."
  So without further ado, I present to you the first two pages of The Mighty Andromeda #1!
