It is so hard to get your work published these days and thank god Kevin
Eastman understands that. So having put together some special issues of
Heavy Metal recently I pitched Kevin on forgetting the idea of a few
DeviantART pin-ups or a gallery...
Instead we'll do an entire issue of Heavy Metal from the DeviantART community. Yup, 100 pages of dA goodness wrapped in slick glossy paper. We're going to aim for an issue as soon as possible next year. The page rates are $75 per page (all in including lettering), yes it is really low and that
After spending the entire time in awkward silence, neither really knowing much about the other...she finally got a pair of cups out of the cupboard and ran some cold water into them.
“Water?” she asked, offering one cup to Lightning Dust.
“Why? We're robots...” Lightning Dust replied crossly. “We don't need to do anything...”
“Well, I wouldn't say that...after every performance, I've been very hot and thirsty...” Trixie replied, taking a drink of her's...and finding herself slowly cool down. “I'm not Twilight, but I believe its obvious we have some use fo

Six ponies, one dragon, and two androids rushed to a window and peaked out, seeing Cover Story and Gear Shift coming up to the castle, moving slowly and methodically with their steps in complete synchronization.
Both Trixie and Lightning Dust backtracked like they were scared to death. They then blinked and looked to one another.
“They...scare me...I don't know why...” Trixie admitted. “It's...like instinct.”
“Same here...and well, what they did to me,” Lightning Dust admitted, trembling a tiny bit despite trying to conceal it.
Twilight gave a worried look to the two. “Alright, Trixie; take Lightning Dust and hide in one of the rooms...there's several hundred.”
Trixie nodded. “Come on, Lightning Dust!”
The pegasus android gave a growl...but seemed to shudder when she tried to think of facing those two and reluctantly followed Trix

An orange unicorn with a dark orange mane and tail, a golden eight-spoked wheel as her Cutie Mark sat in a dark room, holding a small wheel that appeared nearly identical to her Cutie Mark in her orange telekinesis. All but one of the spokes seemed composed of a different colored crystal, one lavender, one orange, one deep purple, one pink, one blue, one red, and one green. The final, middle one was composed of a blue crystal of some sort.
She produced a deck of tarot cards and spread them out on the floor. The wheel cast a rainbow-colored beam from its center, picking out three cards which she moved up to be on their own and began to flip over. The first card flipped was of Discord hovering on a throne with two ponies chained to it marked 15, The Devil.
The next card to be flipped was of a dark tower, marked 16, The Tower.
The final card was of a black skeletal horse holding a scythe
And Lightning Dash ended up being sent flying backwards by Bucky McGillycuddy and Kicks McGee.
“Hooves off her!” Applejack spat back, coming down from her apple buck.
“Careful! She might be like Trixie!” Fluttershy warned, concern clear in her tone.
Lightning Dust simply sat up and flew upwards, dive bombing the group repeatedly and dodging Twilight's attempts to cast a spell on her.
“Is there anything we can do to help her?” Fluttershy asked, taking cover behind the table of Friendship.
Twilight looked back to her scan of Trixie. “...I might have an idea! Hold her off! Trixie with me!”
Trixie blinked and followed Twilight to nearby door.
Lightning Dust attempted to fly after
