What is Relativity?





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
24-Hour Buffet - Relativity Episode 22   Johnny Preston dribbled the basketball, his eyes darting back and forth. He dodged to the left, then to the right. As one of his opponents rushed him, he jumped back and tossed the ball into the air. Sailing in a tall arch, it hit the edge of the rim, spun around, and dropped into the net.
   "Three points," he yelled. "Woo hoo!"
   Michael Bruce ran the back of his hand over his forehead. "Lucky shot. You're only one ahead. We can make that up, easy."
   Another teen, Marcus, gave a laugh. "No way. We're gonna cream you."
   The third teen, a boy named Joe, shook his head. "I don't know. I think the sun is getting to me. I should've made that last basket."
   Sara Wolff had been watching from the sidelines and took the comment as a cue to step forward. "You guys really should go inside. It's in the mid-90s. You're gonna get sick exerting yourselves in this heat."
   "Aw, Sara,"

Master Blankard and  Black Torrent by ekkimu

Legend of the Cheese Maidens   "And what, dare I ask, is a Cheese Maiden?"
   Ravenswood chuckled. "Sorry. They were the cheerleaders at my high school." He sat up in the bed to face Melody. "I grew up in an area that was little more than a bunch of dairy farms. Pretty much everything in town had a name relating to cows, milk, or cheese. So my school newspaper was The Daily Moo, the football team was the Rustlers, and the cheerleaders were Cheese Maidens."
   Melody smiled coyly. "So it would really turn you on if I dressed up as a cheerleader?"
   Ravenswood hid his face in embarrassment. He was still uncomfortable talking to his wife about his sexual leanings, even though the number of suggestions she had made about bedroom activities far outnumbered his, and were generally much more adventurous.
   "Yeah," he admitted.
   Melody thought for a moment, then asked, "So, was there any girl in particular?"
The Paupers Who Saw the World   It was fifty feet tall, and appeared to be made entirely out of smoke. When it spoke, it was with a voice of thunder. "You will bring me the Minotaurs of Doom," it said.
   The two humans standing before it had heard this before. The smoke-creature had made the same demand earlier. "I already told you," shouted one of the humans. "One of the Minotaurs disappeared twenty-five years ago. The other one alone won't do you any good!"
   "You two are time-travellers. Yes, I know these things. You will fetch both Minotaurs and bring them to me."
   "What happens if we don't?"
   "I have extended my... I do not know the word in English."
   "Arms?" asked one of the humans.
   "Tentacles?" suggested the other.
   "No!" shouted the smoke-creature, lightning flashing angrily within it.
   "Lightning?"
   "Lightning! I have extended my lightning a

Bitmap World - Click to Read the Latest Issue:



FAN OF BITMAP WORLD? A member of deviantART? Be sure to check out (or better yet join) our fan club Group!

:iconbitmapworld:


I decided to do a "Geek Confessions" meme, inspired by mirz-alt (hers is here: mirz-alt.deviantart.com/journa… ). The rules are simple: Just describe 5 of your biggest "geek" interests (or obsessions). Mine are...

1: Doctor Who -- The classic series, anyway. I feel kind of luke-warm about the new series. Although, I will admit that now that I've seen the new ones, I can't watch the old episodes any more. They drag so slowly. 90% of any given episode is people standing around talking. Sure, they're talking about aliens who are trying to destroy Earth, but still...

I did the whole "obsessive fanboy" thing -- watching every episode multiple times, going to conventions, writing fan-fiction... I even planned out what I would do if I ever somehow became producer of the show. In Chicago it was broadcast late on Sunday nights. I would watch with the sound down to avoid waking up my mother -- and I mean all the way down. I had seen every episode enough times that I had all the dialogue memorized; I didn't need to have the sound on.

Actor John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness in the new series, also grew up in Chicago and was a huge fan. Which means that I probably met him at a convention at some point and didn't realize it. Speaking of conventions...

2: Star Trek: The Next Generation. There have been a number of Star Trek series over the years, but this one was my favorite. I was a huge fan when it was on and even considered going to a convention dressed as Data. I had the right look for it, I could have pulled it off. I had a plan to win the costume contest: Since Star Trek costumes are generally pretty boring (any idiot can put on a Starfleet uniform), the way to win is to do something extra that amuses the audience. I wrote a tongue-twister and practiced it until I could say it flawlessly. But I never got the uniform or the make-up and never did it. :(

3: Math. I've been a math freak my whole life. I don't know if that makes me a geek or a nerd. :paranoid: Sometimes, when I'm stressed out, I do math to relax. :O

4: Computers. When I was 11 I got an Apple II and learned to program. To this day, Basic is my favorite computer language in spite of the fact that it's the most hated by everybody else. My current love is the Kindle. We have a little B&W Kindle, and I sometimes get to play with a Kindle Fire.

This morning I needed a recipe, so rather than print it out or write it down, I transferred it to the Kindle and brought that to the kitchen. How can I not love something that does that?

5: Webcomics. They're just like comic books except they're free and you don't have to go out to the shop to get them. When I first started reading them, there were no webcomic review sites, so I started one. Immediately, several others sprang up, run by people who had more time and resources than I did. :noes: So mine quickly folded.

Before we started Relativity, Michelle and I had our own webcomic, Bitmap World, which still updates erratically. :D

Nowadays, I have a few core comics I obsessively read every time they update, and a few others I drop-in on occasionally. Most of the comics I like update once every few months, so it's a low-commitment obsession. :)

Thank-you for the faves!


Seriously, thank-you. If you've taken the time to "fave" one of my works of art, then I appreciate it. I really do. Thank-you. Thank-you very much.

I'd love to stop by your page and thank you personally. I really would. I want you to know how much I appreciate your support. Also, I have discovered quite a number of artists by visiting their page to thank them, and then staying to browse their gallery for a while.

Unfortunately, I no longer have time to do this. But, please, know that if you have faved one of my artworks, then I really appreciate it. And I do thank you.
