If you're just starting your adventure with "Marauder Shields", start with episode 6 fav.me/d4tamm9 and move onwards - everything before is not a part of MScanon.

You can find more about this story and how it fits into the Mass Effect universe in "Explaining Marauder Shields - Your Guide to MScanon", here: koobismo.deviantart.com/art/Ex…

Dudes and dudettes! Gentlemen, gentlewomen, autobots and decepticons, and - above all - mutated teenage turtles interested in martial arts and italian cuisine! The first episode of my new webcomic - "Game On, Hardcore" - is already up at the Escapist Magazine, and I invite you to check it out, comment on it (if you dislike the little Facebook widget underneath, there's always the Escapist forums made available to us as well), spread it around and do all the things you young (and old) people do with interesting stuff these days.

Sorry if I'm a bit pushy about all of this (am I?), but it's a huge development for me little self - it's my first foray into the world of paid webcomic production, and, if it pans out, there will definitely be more! So, yes, bonus points for checking it out with Adblock temporarily switched off, even more so for providing me with bits of feedback one way or another! You guys were absolutely crucial to shaping Marauder Shields into what it is today, and I hope you'll help me out with this new endeavour as well.

As I mentioned in this here announcement, I will be following the second "Game On" episode (which will be released a week from now) with the next Marauder Shields, so do expect that to pop up soon as well. If anything, I'm pretty much glued to my chair from now on (no more travelling on those pesky little special gigs), so do expect me to answer all questions uncharacteristically fast, and generally be available for a chat.

I'm sure the new series will take a few episodes to find its footing, but I hope you'll enjoy the ride fully. There's some cool ideas in it, if I may say so myself. Hoping to see it grow into something interesting, unique and - first and foremost - wildly entertaining.

Much love and see you all around!

'Game On, Hardcore' - coming March 24! by koobismo
'Game On, Hardcore' - coming March 24!
Here's a little teaser for my new webcomic series - "Game On, Hardcore" - coming March 24 (yes, tomorrow!) to the Escapist magazine!

Sorry for the late notice, but I've been away on some rather solemn family business (funerals et al) and have only today confirmed the release date with the guys at the big E.

The comic will be released weekly on the Escapist's site - with the first episode being an extra-length double-feature. I can only hope the series - filled with action, mystery and gaming-themed comedy - will be to your liking. If it is - do remember to switch off your Adblock while reading, I'm actually being paid for this one!

I still have a few outstanding things to resolve over the next week, but do expect the next "Marauder Shields" to roll out shortly after episode 2 of "Game On...", which will be coming out next Tuesday. As always, thanks for your patience and keep your fingers crossed, as this whole thing might end up a personal game-changer. I don't want to jinx it (despite not really believing in jinxes), but if this picks up, it could allow me to spend way more time working on all my projects - MS included - instead of slogging from one freelancing thing to another. Here's hoping!

And... Game on!

P.S. It's up riiiight nooow! Check it out here, share, comment, all the jazz: www.escapistmagazine.com/artic…

If you’re one of the folks that kept a close watch on my time expenditures over the past six months, you might’ve noticed a certain super-secret project popping up now and then, most prominently around Christmas time. I kept it pretty low-profile for a while, mainly not to provide any more evidence that I am an overoptimistic fool that doesn’t know his ass from his forehead – because, seriously, if you’ve been around here for more than a month, you know I’ve provided enough evidence of that already.

As of yesterday, though, it seems said super-secret project is finally getting some traction – as in: smiles being issued, handshakes exchanged, pens touching the paper, all the jazz. It’s a definite game-changer for myself — and I really couldn’t wait to, at the very least, tell you guys it’s happening!

And, thusly, without further ado, I’m batshit excited to announce that I shall be working with the awesome folks at the Escapist Magazine to bring you a new, weekly webcomic series! Starting with the end of March, you will get a new comic written and illustrated by yours truly every friggin’ week, its story venturing into territories I have not yet ventured into. It will be heavily serialized, gaming-themed, and – hopefully – a ton of fun.

What does this mean for my other projects? Since this is a paid thing, throwing coins into my home budget, it will supplant some of my paid freelancing work, with the rest of the stuff – nominally Marauder Shields, Historically Gaming and my game — unaffected, slow-cooking as they always were. I’m actually hoping that if the mighty fine readers of the Escapist approve of this series, it might put some wind under my wings and open up additional possibilities for cooperation, with Safehaven waiting patiently for its own chance to shine. In other words: there’s copious rewards awaiting yours truly, if only I manage to upkeep your interest!

Regardless of whether you’re regulars at the Escapist or not, I hope you’ll join me on this newest wicked adventure. Frankly speaking, I’m now both extremely excited and terrified at the prospect of opening to a larger audience once more – and the butterflies in my stomach are slowly evolving into goddamn Mothra-sized spacemoth godzillakillers.

I'll share more details soon, and I need to update you guys on some other happenings as well — like the fact that my game almost achieved demo status before I dragged it back to the workshop to improve upon its story’s structure ONCE AGAIN. Expect that, and more, in the next few days and weeks, as it seems that I’m actually becoming an honest-to-god creator of internet content. A professional one.

Funny how far we went from that one goddamn mock poster built around an internet meme.

All of this is amazing, and you’re amazing, and there's plenty of amazing ahead. Thanks for sticking around.

Much love,
Koobs

P.S. Just to remind you, I’m available here, on my site, on e-mail, Twitter and Tumblr if you want to learn more or need any questions answered. Note that I also have a Facebook page set up for Historically Gaming, here.

P.S.2. As I was asked about this on Twitter already – the new project’s all drama-free and unconnected to the recent big headlines in gaming publications. It's just me, telling a cool story.

P.S.3. This post originally published here, a mere minute ago: www.koobismo.com/2015/02/koobi…

Welcome to the official birthplace of the Marauder Shields comics, bringing you a fan-made alternative ending to Mass Effect 3, one episode at a time. I am also the proud inventor of the Wrex emoticon: <>:] ...or so I think. My headquarters are officially located at koobismo.com but I still bounce around this here area pretty often.

If you're new here, look around, check out my comics koobismo.deviantart.com/galler… (the alternative canon ending starts with episode 6 koobismo.deviantart.com/art/Ma… everything before that was just for fun - you can find more info on where to start and what it's all about here: koobismo.deviantart.com/art/Ex…), listen to the few audiobooks we've completed so far koobismo.deviantart.com/galler… (added irregularly), spend some time with the fun stuff koobismo.deviantart.com/galler… - be sure to feel at home, comment and share all your thoughts. And if you're reeaaally bored, you can take a look at some of my nonsensical scraps as well: koobismo.deviantart.com/galler…

If you like this little initiative, you can help me out a bit by spreading these comics around - each retweet, each facebook post, each forum mention matters. Oh, and be sure to follow me on twitter twitter.com/koobismo - the place where I spill the beans and announce important stuff that no one but me cares about.

Direct e-mail contact? Here you go: koobismo@koobismo.com - but keep in mind that from time to time some e-mails are lost in the chaos of space-time continuum. You can befriend me at Steam, here: steamcommunity.com/id/koobismo - oh, and my Origin account name is "koobismo" (how original).

Oh, and I'm totally available for hire and/or commissions.

Welcome to the line, Commander.

The total silence on the project is starting to worry me.
