The Power of Stardust

The Power of Stardust

by Otto Gruenwald
Mere decades after the end of the Great War in the Air the world finds itself in the midst of a second Great War--a war in which gods and men-like gods shake the very foundations of reality with their combat.

The rise of superhumanity and supertechnology has expanded Earth's war to the far corners of reality. There is no end in sight to the conflict. With each new miracle comes several new nightmares. The fires of war grow and threaten to consume all existence.

After a battle in Europe against an Axis energy dragon, a superhuman named Spectro tumbles through uncharted reality--and something follows him back home to Earth, something with strange thoughts and incredible power.

This is the tipping point. This is point of no return.

The Earth is in the Power of Stardust, and there is no turning back.

Constellation Mappers
The Constellation Mappers are one of the oldest religious orders in the universe. Formed from all the sapient races of the cosmos (Including Lorians, as seen a couple of pages ago), they believe that the underlying reality of the universe consists of stories--particularly the stories given to the stars.

The Constellation Mappers travel the universe mapping the constellations and their associated stories--spreading and sharing technology and culture as they do so.

Most Lorians "ignite" when instinct drives them to travel the cosmos and find a lifeless world to die upon and seed with their ashes. But some resist this instinct and maintain their natural immortality. These immortals are some of the most respected Mappers as they are old enough to see old stars die and new stars birthed.
Happy Saturday Update!

Happy Saturday update everyone!

There'll be a new Trespasser chapter every Saturday! If you like The Power of Stardust check it out, it takes place 10 years before The Power of Stardust in the same universe!
100 Subs on Tapas and the start of a new webnovel!
Over at The Power of Stardust's other home, we've hit 100 subscribers!

I wonder how long it'll take to reach that over here?

In other news, I've started a webnovel about a pulp superhero named the Trespasser in the vein of The Shadow, The Spider, and The Avenger. It's purpose is to not only provide a good story, but to help keep me disciplined as a writer. I'm going to try to keep up a weekly schedule with it.

Oh course, this doesn't mean I'm never going to finish those secret files! I haven't forgotten about them!
We're Back!
We're back!

I also did some lore files this week on tapas (with mutants and masterminds character sheets, if anyone is into that). They were shorter than the Axis/Fantomah/Fishermen Legacy files still developing, so I got them finished fast!

The Immortal, 1930's bank robber turned electric phantom:https://tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-The-Immortal

The Needle, a doctor by day, fearsome avenger by night:https://tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-The-Needle-

The Dove, a gentleman killer: https://tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-The-Dove-
https://tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-The-Fishermen

It's another lore file tie in today (Nyamo is steadily but surely recovering!)

The Fishermen are one of America's oldest superhero legacies and have recently accepted a FisherGIRL into their ranks.

Pearl "Percy" Adams follows her half-human half-thule brothers into service. Though many try and make something political about her being the first woman on the Fishermen, she has a great respect for the men of her family who have inspired her and the women who choose to use their powers in non-combat roles and wishes to be seen as just another continuation of a century-old tradition.
Mystery Woman of the Jungle!
Our artist Nyamo is shifting back into gear and the next page is getting close to done. Have a sketch of Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle in the meantime--and a new lore file over at:

https://tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-Fantomah
A new lore file in progress!
This week we have another lore file tie-in pic depicting a child of Futuro, one of the Axis counter-superhumans used throughout the war.

tapas.io/series/Capeworld-Secret-Files-The-Individual-Axis-Nations-and-Their-Co unter-Superhumans

The children of Futuro were once humans, the flower of Italian youth, but they were offered up to the self-proclaimed god of tomorrow and transformed into beings of shattered light and screeching sound by his touch. Their human guises were created to make them less disconcerting for the Italian officers that commanded them, though as this picture shows the guises were often imperfect.
The Comment!
Our artist has been sick lately which is why new pages have been so slow, but enjoy this drawing of a Black Terror soldier and new lore file fleshing out the history of the world of The Power of Stardust at:

What if?
When Gar of the Starfield universe threatens to kick the world off a table it's up to newspaper's finest to stop him! But when Mandrake the Magician goes off the deep end trying to stop him can Slylock Fox and Prince Valiant prevent Mandrake from becoming an even worse threat than Gar-Field?

What if The Power of Stardust substituted newspaper comic strip characters for public domain characters?
