Tetsuko And Ultrawoman H vs. 5 monsters! by DavidCMatthews Tetsuko And Ultrawoman H vs. 5 monsters! :icondavidcmatthews:DavidCMatthews 127 23
Literature
Five Stages of Tetsuko's Life
It seems now that I can divide Tetsuko's life so far into five distinct stages (red-bulleted items have been, or will be, chronicled in the series):
:bulletgreen: Her childhood in Japan: attending Japanese schools, occasionally running afoul of the local customs (always challenging the boys to foot races or feats of strength, etc.)
:bulletgreen: Her move to America after the death of her parents (age fifteen or so); living with her Aunt Margaret, adjusting to American high schools; graduation from high school and freshman year in college; meeting, working for and befriending Dr. Sonya Gannon who shares her interest in Japanese pop culture
:bulletred: The aftermath of The Injection: Tetsuko's transformation into the super-buff, super-busty, superhumanly strong blonde Amazon we know and love; her first steps into a career as a heroine
:bulletred: The Odyssey: Tetsuko and Sonya kidnapped into an ancient time and land of barbaric splendor, fantastic creatures and beings, and almost constan

I was able to restore the functionality of my Wacom tablet! :party: :boogie:

And it was Astropad (the app that lets me use my iPad as a drawing tablet on my Mac, and that I was toying with using as a replacement for the Wacom) that gave me the hint I needed to do it.

Since I wrote my previous entry about losing the use of my tablet, I went back to work on the first issue of Tetsuko's Odyssey, using my iPad and Astropad. This was the first time I started Astropad since my macOS upgrade to Mojave, and I found I had to re-setup Astropad to work with the new OS. Fortunately, the app itself stepped me through the procedure: open my System Preferences, open the Security & Privacy pane, and click "Accessibility" in the sidebar. This brings up a list of apps that are permitted to control the computer. I entered my admin password; Astropad was on the list but wasn't checkmarked, so I did that.

...and noticed another item that was grayed out: "WacomTabletSpringboard". So I gambled: after working a bit on the comic (to make sure Astropad still worked), I reloaded the old driver for my Wacom. I repeated the steps from Astropad, and checkmarked the Wacom entry.

It worked! My Wacom tablet works again! :happybounce: Yay me! :#1:

So if you're in that situation, in which you have an older Wacom tablet which doesn't work after upgrading to macOS 10.14 (Mojave), here's what you do (assuming you still have the driver loaded, and didn't uninstall it like I did; if so, reinstall it and restart):

- Go to System Preferences
- Click on "Security & Privacy"
- in the S&P pane, click on "Accessibility"
- Click the lock icon in the lower left corner to enter your administrative password so you can make the required change
- There should be an item in the list of apps that are allowed to control your Mac, "WacomTabletSpringboard", that will have an empty checkbox beside it. Check that box, then close System Preferences. You should then find your tablet's functionality restored.

Looking over the Tetsuko's Odyssey cover I recently posted, I'm thinking that changing the rather staid background of the "past" half of the illo to an arena setting would make it a better cover. Maybe with a half-troll gladiator in the background...?

So don't be surprised if there's a new version posted soon. (But don't be surprised if I don't get to it for awhile, either :doh:)
Been doing a little writing lately.

I'm fleshing out the story behind this pic:
Tetsuko Vs Unnamed Monster - WIP (SFW) by DavidCMatthews
...I think I'm going to make this creature a "monster eater", which drifts from planet to planet looking for (very!) large animals to consume. (Wow, just had an idea occur to me: originally it was going to arrive on Earth at the same time as an evil alien monster, and eats it before AMAC and Tetsuko can get to it; now, I think when it comes to Earth it starts eating the whales, which makes it very important that Tetsuko and co. stop its predations. Of course, when Tet-chan "giants up", she'll be next on its menu!)

I've also been bingeing on the original Ultraman, and getting quite a lot of inspirations for stories and monsters.
"Tetsuko March" aside, if Kaijuu Fighter Tetsuko ever became a movie/TV series, I'd love for the score to sound like this:


"Super X-2" composed by Koichi Sugiyama, from Godzilla vs. Biollante. One of my favorite Godzilla soundtracks.
If you just bought the new Creature From the Black Lagoon: Complete Legacy Collection Blu-ray and are having problems playing back Revenge of the Creature in 3D, it's not your system that's acting up. Universal released a substandard 3D disc that has many, many customers (including me) hopping mad. I've emailed them about the problem, and hope they'll issue replacement discs. Until they do, if you haven't got it yet and are thinking of buying it because they promised the 3D version of Revenge of the Creature, save your money.
41 years ago today, Janet and I said our "I do's" to each other.

Still together (and crazy - 'bout each other) after all these years.

Thank you for the heads-up.

I do get credited for the art, and it doesn't look like it's being sold; I'm OK with people posting my art as long as they credit me, they're not selling it, or haven't altered it.
