Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hello everyone.  I'm new here to the female muscle population, and to a great degree the internet itself.  Fortunately, my character Quadra-Blu is know to many of you here from her appearances in the '90's era MAX REP cartoon series that ran in MUSCUAR DEVELOPMENT magazine.  Several of you have asked me over the past years to bring her back, and for a while there seemed no where to bring her back too.  I must thank AREA ORION for bringing to my attention a possible audience: you guyz and girlz here in this realm.

Starting with the weeks to come I hope to bring you weird weekly stories centered around cerulian-haired Quadra-Blu.  I will try and bring a unique vision based on surrealistic-but-logical adventure with a subtle sexy edge. I also want to bring you suitable art, tho' not labor-intensive, that will show a sense of muscle mixed with grace, proportion and motion.

Constructive comments are welcome, and I'll try my best to respond in a timely manner if a response is required.

This whole online thing is an experiment, and I hope it will be worthwhile for muscle/adventure fans.

Two best named bodybuilder/muscle characters ever, by the way!

Thank you Rasmane. I wouldn't mind seeing how the Deviants play with that color blue. BTW, which "two" names did you mean? I'm assuming one is Quadra-Blu...

The other is the mighty Max Rep, of course. “Razer-Cutt” comes in a close third. Mostly to irk him over placing. :laughing:

Thanks, and I appreciate that you remember so much from the old Max Rep series. The name "Max Rep" comes from the term "maximum repetition" which was a big training buzzword back in the 80's. Razer-Cutt was indeed created to cause problems for Max (plus I needed a super-ripped character to offset Max's mass). Well, now I'm talking like a real comics geek....

Show us how it’s done, Lyman! That particular shade of blue will be ubiquitous here before you’re through!

Thanks Fett. Me, too. So far so good. We're just working out the details w' launching the website. 6 episodes are completed. I plan to do 1-a-week, two pages of story at a time (most of the time)releases. With 3 more roughly written.

Please bring back Max Rep too! The heroine needs a real man :)

I agree droz! In the beginning tho' I'll keep Quadra "solo". I want the readers to get to know her before I introduce a love interest. I want her to "break a few hearts" on earth before she meets Max Rep. I'm happy you like the big guy, too!!

Yeah, it's great to see Quadra-Blu back in our Galaxy. Should be a lot of fun following along with her adventures on a regular basis.

Thanks Sip'! I hope I won't disappoint anyone. I'm pacing the storyline as best I can w'out it getting boring. I'm also looking to hilight her muscles and sexy body w'out going fetish. It will grow more strange as time progresses.

It'll be great to see Quadra Blu back in action. I must say I missed her. :)

Hi cele7110. Thank you for your kind words. I've missed her too, and it was really like starting up an old car to get my mind back into storytelling mode. I hope to make the art better than what you remember also! I like you computer women!!

Here's hoping the old car still has a bit of muscle under the hood. ;) Be sure and post a journal when you get everything fully up and running.

Many thanks for the compliment. :)

Oh, it's still a "muscle car" fer sure. You're welcome. All this computer art is still new to me, and I like the way you move the firure around in space.

Glad I could use my powers of "annoyance" to help bring Quadra back. It's been great seeing the process.

But seing your works, your arrival is something great for the community, can't wait to see more art from you :)

That's ok. For a long time I had a successful career in bodybuilding art "under the radar". I'm thrilled that there were still people out there that remembered the series, and happy to make new contacts w' those that never knew it. I hope I can make a good new contrubution for you and the others here thru' new works and the online cartoon.

Thank you Angs.
