We're in the last month of 2018...where the time go? 

So it feels like a good time to assess the year and get an idea of what may happen the next.

2018 featured a lot of character work. For Mindy, there was work on some supporting players, villains, and career (thanks to CrimsonVlkyrie for the Crane Foundation concept).

Supporting Cast
John Crane: Melinda's husband, the two met at Steel Canyon University during Freshman Orientation. After graduation from SCU with a degree in criminal justice, John served as a Military Police Officer in United States Army at a base near Steel City before joining the Angel Falls Police department as a detective. After the family's move to Dream Haven,  John started his own private security and investigations firm while also serving on the board of The Crane Foundation.
Cecilia (CeCe) Crane: John and Melinda's adopted 10 year old daughter. Enthusiastic and curious about everything, CeCe always tries to be helpful (even if she unintentionally gets in the way). Wants a pony.
Joseph Crane: John and Melinda's 3 year old son. Currently the quietest of the Crane children.
Elizabeth Meiri: Melinda's college roommate at Steel Canyon University, Fashion major. Originally from Southern California, Liz has a big and bubby personality that draws in everyone
The Crane Foundation
Based in Dream Haven, the Crane Foundation is located in the former West End Savings & Loan building and is owned and operated by Melinda Crane. Her husband, John, has a small stake in the foundation, which he helps run when he isn't busy with his detective work. The two story building houses Melinda's law practice, which offers low cost legal help to those in need, and her charity organization where she uses her contacts and resources to help the less fortunate.
The Foundation also has a mentoring program and heavily supports the local orphanage and its adoption programs.
Along with private donations, the Crane Foundation is funded, in part, by royalties received from Mindy Marvel related merchandise and licensing fees.
The basement contains Claudia's work area where she has room to do the repairs and upgrades of people's computers, smart phones, and tablets. There's also a private elevator that goes to the second floor.
The ground floor houses

But then everything took a hard left turn in the last third of the year with the introduction of Isla/Spitfire, which then led to Jasmine/Lotus, then Charlotte/Hurricane...then the avalanche of Caitlin/Ember, Claire/Frost, Megan/Bluebird, and Li Na/Bauhinia. And Isla's nickname "The British Bombshell" turned into a league of British Bombshells

So, overall, there was a lot of production here. Not any long form stories but some shorts that I'm happy with and that's probably what you will see going forward. And speaking of going forward...

2019

New Characters

As I've mentioned in previous entries, there will be no new characters introduced next year. Mostly because I don't want a large roster that I know I'll never be able to manage (not saying a large roster of characters is bad, there are some talented people who do and they handle it well). And that means no villains as well. Why? Because, at my core, I love the good girls. I mean, I used a villain's outfit and turned it into Isla/Spitfire which then beget 6 more heroines.  So if one villain ended up adding seven heroines...well...you do the math. :)

Content

There's been a lot of new artwork posted this year, which is cool because I like getting it done and sharing it and seeing the feedback it creates. But I'm hoping to scale that back going forward. My plan is one piece per month and a short story accompanying it.

Mindy

So you haven't seen much of her in the last few months.

Mindy: "Unless you follow CrimsonVlkyrie, she hasn't forgotten about me! :( "

That's true, follow her for amazing content featuring Crimson Valkyrie, Silver Falcon, Hornette, and others (including Mindy... ;) ).

I have a pretty one track mind so when Isla came together, the whole Bombshells concept became my focus. So once that train makes it back to the station, you'll see more Mindy. Not sure when, but sometime next year. 


Thanks to everyone for your support this year, in the past, and (hopefully) in the future. :)

I don't know if anyone's told you yet, but Mindy Marvel's logo looks a little like a retro McDonalds sign =D.
