It is All Relative

Get Ready for the Storm...


RELATIVITY is a character drama that centers around a team of superheroes who operate in the fictional Gale City. The focus of the series, however, is the people behind the mask, and how they juggle work, life and love while donning a mask at night. While essentially a prose-comicbook series, Relativity is also firmly planted in the mystery genre as the team investigates and solves various crimes, while also contending with a menagerie of strange and interesting villains.

Lost and Found Scene 1 - Relativity Episode 1The light above the vanity flickered, throwing the room into a series of shadows. Babs Stone tapped the plastic casing with her finger, hoping to jiggle the bulb back into place. The room fell into complete darkness. After a moment, the light snapped back on, shining bright and steady. The prostitute leaned back towards the mirror.
Pulling up her chin, Babs checked her throat carefully. While she didn’t have a policy against rough stuff, she didn’t like when her clients left marks. It made it difficult when picking up another john, not to mention she simply didn’t like bruising on her neck. Satisfied, she tousled her long platinum blonde hair so it framed her face, then twisted open a cylinder of Fire Engine Red and  smeared it across her lips. She could hear shuffling and smiled at the thought of the man on the other side of the door.
While she had several regulars, Babs liked Denny the best. He was always clean and smelled nice. More than that, he always called

   Dark Flame gripped the rungs of the ladder and slowly climbed to the top of the tall metal structure. "I've never been up here because it's always closed for refurbishing."
   Torrent took the steps two at a time. "The city just keeps that sign up so kids won't vandalize it. Us 'in the know' come here all the time."
   The observation tower in Gale Park was 100 feet tall and allowed an impressive view of the mile long grassy area that bordered the uptown area. Though the tower itself appeared rickety from a distance, once she was at the top, Dark Flame was surprised how sturdy it was.
   "I love coming up here." Torrent said with a smile.
   "Makes it easier to keep an eye on things, that's for sure." Pulling off her gloves, she used them to fan her face. "It's getting hot, and it's just early June. I hope we don't have another brutal summer."

The Beginning...

Black Torrent commission by shamserg

Twenty years ago the Black Torrent patrolled the streets of Gale City, protecting the citizens, until he disappeared without a trace...

Michael Bruce is one of the world's richest men, head of a real estate empire that spreads to all corners of the world. Many wonder what is the secret to his success, but Michael's secrets travel far beyond the boardroom...onto the rooftops of Gale. Taking over the role of the Black Torrent, the young CEO follows in the footsteps of his father, keeping the streets safe from crime. When Martin Bling, the billionaire casino mogul, shows up on the scene, Torrent and his team start digging into the man's less-than-ethical affairs. They are aided in their investigation by the mysterious Dark Flame, a relative newcomer to the crimefighting scene. Expecting to uncover corporate corruption and dirty business dealings, what they find threatens to shake Michael to the core – a connection to Bling's girlfriend he never dreamed of, and a revelation that the past he knew wasn't what he thought it to be. As crimefighting and family drama collide, the team must deal with secrets, lies and betrayals, and the prospects of an uncertain future. -- Click to Read

Thankfully, a trusted ally holds the key that can crack the case. But what happens when that ally refuses to help? -- Click to Read

Super Again!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 24, 2015, 5:36 PM
Well, it was just in the nick of time, but our tax refund came in. No exaggeration, we had $9 in the bank for a week, and were hoping the t.p. and diapers would hold out until then. :paranoid: Anyhow, Uncle Sam to the rescue. After juggling a few things and looking at all the numbers, I was able to renew the RelativityComic super-status today, so we'll have a pretty group for another year. I would like to give a big shout-out to InkyRose for her point donation towards the upgrade. I sincerely appreciate it.

The group is back to it's old layout, but it still looks a big bare. I had modified some of the widgets for the non-super status, so the front page will need a bit of snazzing up. I had planned to do some work on the folders and layout anyway, so expect a bit of a facelift in the next week or two.

With the refund, I usually put aside a nice amount of money to have as a commission reserve for a few months. Unfortunately, this year there are a lot of bills and future expenses we have to save for, so the fund will be much smaller. It won't mean a halt to the art, though. I did manage to earmark for a few pieces which I hope to show-off in the upcoming months. And I still have a lot of old art which needs to be uploaded, so the gallery won't be bare. But you have probably noticed that things have slowed down quite a bit, and will probably stay that way for a while. Which is good in many ways, as I'm eager to focus my full attention back on writing.

In related news, the re-launch of our website was a great success. Thank you to everyone who came by and left nice comments about it! We are still working on a few other sites and should be re-launching them very soon. However, I'm still knee-deep in coding chaos. But the end is near. The Relativity sister-site should be up in the next couple days, along with a few other sites we're working on (such as Chasers). Then it's full-speed ahead with writing and pixelling (namely my way gigantic to-do list). I am determined to catch-up on both up in the coming weeks.

Hope everyone is braving winter's return. I hope it's brief. My family ended up sick...again! I'm currently battling an earache and sore throat. Hopefully the warm weather will be here to stay, soon, and we all can just get better.




A special feature. I'd like to showcase some recent work phil-cho did for me. It's the awesome characters of Know-Kname. Check them out...

No worries. I actually meant to submit all of them to the group, but ended up on the phone and then closed it out. I'll request those be added soon.
