Manga creator Kentaro Miura passed away on May 6, but the news was released on May 19. Finding out about this was a punch in the gut, since he was only 54 (the cause of death was an aortic dissection). Miura created several works during his life, but his best known work--which now will remain unfinished--was the fantasy manga BERSERK, which he began in 1989 and was still working on. BERSERK remains one of the best manga ever created; its dark fantasy story about Guts, a former mercenary who travels across the country during the medieval age facing off against monsters and other humans won praise for its intricate artwork as well as its story, which at times could get quite brutal. If you think GAME OF THRONES is dark, then you haven't read BERSERK. Taking influences from classic science fiction as well as Kuaru Kurimoto's GUIN SAGA as well as the classic manga FIST OF THE NORTH STAR, BERSERK's influence would be seen in manga such as DEMON SLAYER and VAGABOND and video games like

I'm not going to lie--I am ready to put 2020 behind me. This year was...well, to put it nicely, awful. A pandemic that has taken close to 350,000 lives in the US (and counting), lockdowns, having to isolate from friends and family, rampant corruption in the White House via the most corrupt President in modern history, and his political party openly calling for taking voting rights from people and overturning an election because they did not like the results, smug @$$holes on social media spreading lies and gleefully hoping for everything to fall apart.... I knew family and friends who were affected by COVID, and let's be blunt--everyone knows someone who has been affected by this pandemic. I lost a good friend this year--not to COVID, but to a tragic one-in-a-million complication from surgery. I missed seeing family and friends. I missed going to the movies and places that I used to go to. I missed seeing someone who I realized--only after things were closed--I had developed

Syd Mead went from designing cars and industrial products to designing worlds.  And while he was already well known for the former, it will be the latter than many will remember him for. Mead, who passed away on December 30, had lent his distinctive look to films such as ALIENS, TRON, SHORT CIRCUIT, and others.  Starting with STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (1979), Mead would go on to re-define the look of SF films with BLADE RUNNER (1982), the classic film that has inspired numerous artists and authors over the years.  He even came back for the sequel, BLADE RUNNER 2049 (2017), with his designs for a future Las Vegas. For the film BLADE RUNN

Hi, thank you for the fav on Thanos :


Once again, this is another revision of my OC Divalk (aka Shunichi Kobayashi). Here it is.

Divalk (Merge OC)

What do ya think?

Again, I apologize for the constant comments, but here's a new pic of Ms. Galactic (aka Tiff Karell) someone made for me.

What do ya think?

I like it! They did a fantastic job on this--she looks amazing and powerful.

Indeed. And I like how her physique is perfectly balanced in terms of muscle, much like Carol Danvers (aka Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel).

Sorry for yet another comment, but I wanted to show you another OC of mine. She is yet another mother, that being Masuyo Kobayashi, the mother of Shunichi Kobayashi (aka Divalk). Here she is.
