As promised, a quick view of Faith's besties and helpers in her globetrotting quest to rescue her parents and fight the forces of evil.
G.I. Joe cartoon, but he's not a military man, so he was drawn as a more engineer-type. His official title is "weapons tester," I believe, but I always thought of him more as "Rhodey" from the older Iron Man comics, sort of a Jack of all trades. Writing Hoyt required less research. since he's pretty much a meat-and--potatoes kind of guy. In fact, he was probably my favorite character to write the dialogue for, because he is rather fearless, so no matter what hair-raising situation he may find himself in, he can crack a joke, and I love writing a witty zinger when appropriate. I hope John doesn't mind me spoiling my favorite line of dialogue from issue #1. When he sees the villains have launched missiles at them, Hoyt reacts by saying, "We've got trouble... Heat-seeking trouble." Hehe. It's the little things... Sometime down the road, you may see the Hoyt solo story that John and I penned. That's a classic.
So, those are the good guys. Hopefully, tomorrow I will reveal what little there is to reveal about the villains, but secret terrorist organizations usually keep things under wraps, so we'll see. In the meantime, go see Wreck-it Ralph. Good times if you love Pixar and/or video games. And get there early to see the Paperman short that plays before it. Ridiculously funny and, dare I say, sweet.
