Dana Harts: Lightning Round

Image
So this Dana Harts isn't recommending something called "Lightning Round," it's going to be a bunch of little things that I don't have enough to say about them to warrant an entire post about it.

While I'm bored waiting for my obsessions, Siren's Lament, Boyfriend of the Undead, and Nobelesse to update, I read other web comics on Line Webtoon.  Not all of them are good.  But they sure are conversation pieces.






♥ Blue Chair

You'll probably recognize this guy.  I've seen his art on Facebook and imgur, sadly usually without credit.  Blue Chair is a Line Webtoon webcomic by Shen. He's the one that did that existential crisis meme that is so relateable it hurts.  You'll recognize his art style, too, as he has a bunch of other famous little comics too.  There's hundreds of these comics, and from what I've read so far, they are all pretty funny.  If you wanted more but didn't know where to find it, now you know!  Blue Chair is still on…

Dana Harts: Nobelesse

Welcome to another episode of Dana Harts!

Today I'm going to be telling you how much I ♥ Nobelesse!

As is the trend with my last several recommendations, Nobelesse is a Line Webtoons web comic by Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee.  I'm into web comics right now, okay?!  Nobelesse is basically a kick-ass, high powered anime, except the drawings don't move.  This thing seriously needs to be an anime, I would watch the hell out of it.  The fight sequences are so epic even when they aren't moving.



Nobelesse sort of follows the story of a super quiet, super powerful guy named Cadis Etrama Di Raziel.  He wakes up after sleeping for 820 years and ends up in modern day Korea, where he meets up with his old servant, Frankenstein.  Rai is technically a vampire but not in the traditional sense, the difference being that Rai has blood powers but doesn't really drink blood.  Frankenstein is technically human, but he has experimented on himself so much that he has dark superpowers that th…

Small Victories, Small Setbacks

Even though a lot of my author life has been put on hold as I travel back and forth from the hospital to take care of my dad, there are still some things coming out of the woodwork.



-Writers Guild Updates-

I became vice president of the Hannibal Writers Guild!  Heck yeah, man.  I was originally nominated for secretary, but VP is what I wanted.  Of course I would have loved president but I took the step back from it to let the founder of the guild be president (I probably wouldn't have won the majority anyway).

I am almost geared up to go to the Big River Steampunk Festival.  I will be helping to man the guild booth, but I'm as of yet unsure which days I will be there for it.  I was thinking Saturday and the first half or so of Sunday (I'd stay longer, but I don't want to leave my dad all alone in the hospital all weekend but I also don't want to have to drive back and forth every day when it's such a long drive).  I'll be dressed up in a steampunk costume, i…

Dana Harts: Boyfriend of the Undead

Image
Welcome back to another Dana Harts, a blog series about the literature and movies that I love and recommend.

Today I will tell you how much I ♥ Boyfriend of the Undead!



Give it a chance, I swear the title doesn't do it justice.  Boyfriend of the Undead by Ushio is a web comic on Line WebToons.  It's free, hilarious, and well exceeded my expectations from the very beginning. Seriously, read Chapter 2 and tell me you don't love it.

Boyfriend of the Undead is like if Warm Bodies was a comedy instead of a romance.  It's pretty similar in basic plot but the tone is totally different.  The zombie guy, N, is a total food nerd and won't eat a majority of people because they're too oily (fat), tough (muscled), thin (skinny), or any other number of reasons.  He's also ashamed of the table manners of his fellow zombies.  Eating people raw without seasonings?  Eww, says N.



So when he finds a zombie killing machine in the form of a girl in a pink dress who looks absolute…
