He tapped the board again, and the same shimmering light erupted from its stylus and encircled his hand. Now for the true pyrotechnics. He stepped onto the sensor array directly beneath the ceiling projector.

Chapter #2 Fresh Start Christian squeezed his eyes shut, fully expecting the Toyota Tundra to smash him to the pavement, smear his body into paste, and crush his beaker of plasma balls into a coruscant fireball.

And though he had sprung forward, he still hadn’t landed. His body had stopped falling but hadn’t yet touched the ground. Maybe it would help if I opened my eyes. He did, but whether th...

Chapter #1 Hot Seat Christian Meadows was ready to be fired. Or expelled. Maybe even shot by the campus cops if it came to that. Anything to get out of the university president’s outer office, off the damned uncomfortable visitor’s couch, and as far away as possible from the president’s high-strung executive assistant Doreen. She was having a bad day, to put it mildly—much worse than Christian’s, which was saying something. Christian had been called to the president’s office to answer for the small matter of his PhD advisor’s treason, but Doreen had the much harder job of thwarting t...

Manga Monday

There's a lot you would expect this week: RWBY; Battle Angel Alita ; Black Butler (issue 149! At what point do we just stop counting issues and just go by the year?) But there are also some surprises. For example, I didn't expect to see Wolverine, but there he was in the search, holding an Infinity Stone of all things, so gotta include that. Along the same lines, Korra, daughter of Ang, the Last Airbender, makes an appearance. Thought that storyline was over, but what do you know? Here it is in print! High School DxD, Yona of the Dawn, and élDLIVE round out the list. The moral of the stor...
