Nice second opinion

Blasted mutants!

The comic was up late evening today, on account of the spectacular X-Men 2.

I was skeptical about this movie. It could very easily have tanked. As far as I'm concerned, it didn't. The action was great, the character development was good (they keep laying the groundwork for future introduction of familiar mutants) and the story was good. Overall, I was pleased. It didn't seem as short as the first. I liked the original film, but I always felt it was lacking a bit. X2 delivers. Go see it.

I came across a rather funny comic the other day, that I think you should check out. I went through the entire archives of A Modest Destiny in one sitting, and enjoyed every strip. It's not a sprite comic, since the art is original and not from a video game. The author calls it pixel art. It works well for the strip and, unlike sprite comics, the character are large, clean and colorful. And it's funny to boot. Take a look.

Again, just a heads up, it is very possible that the new site layout will be going live this weekend, so if you notice the site is down, don't panic. It should be up and running before Monday.

And... we're up

As I'm sure you can see...well, not you, blindy... but the rest of you, the new site design is up.

We're still settling in here, so bear with us. Feel free to look around. Hope you enjoy the new look, and the new features.

Well...If you haven't already noticed, the new site is now up and running. If you see any sort of bugs, please be sure to let either me or Stocad know. You can find our e-mail addresses at the bottom of the page in the copyright info :P. If you do encounter a bug the most helpful way of getting it fixed is to take a screen shot of it so we can see on what page the problem is and get good idea of what it is. Anyway. Enjoy the new site.

Fez wearing monkies strike again!

Absath said it was coming and here it is. The new site design! Now sporting a wonderful php foundation and some pretty nifty admin code life could be much happier around here now.

Rastin covered most of the basics. I'd also like to add that if you have any ideas for features feel free to let us know. Now that everything is done up in php cool little features are relatively easy to add.

I've been informed that the link for A Modest Destiny isn't working. The news-editing function isn't working yet, so I'm reposting it here.

The new review system is up and running, and the first thing I tested it on was X-Men 2. Go check out the review in the Reviews section! As for me, I'm going to sleep.
