Steve and I posted 150 pages last year. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun, as well. This year we’d like to double that amount, but we need you (our loyal fans) to accomplish this.
“How can we help?” you might be asking. Well, now there’s a way…

Check out our Patreon site and support us, get lots of cool stuff, and help us bring more Warped Cosmos to you.
NASA has released a beautiful image of the Andromeda Galaxy taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Scientists can now identify individual stars within certain parts of the spiral for the first time. This high definition image has 1.5 million pixels, the highest resolution picture of Andromeda ever taken, consisting of 1 trillion stars. That’s an average of 667 stars for every pixel.
“My God…It’s full of stars.”
Doctor Warped’s short, goofy little sidekick, Glitch, is strangely fond of baseball. With the previous incarnation of the character this was not so. I don’t think baseball was even a part of the initial Doctor Warped/Warped Cosmos universe, but my love of the game has seeped into the character. Doctor Warped was a fan in some earlier drafts but this didn’t really add anything to his character. Glitch was not in the initial early drafts.
Glitch is a little neurotic because as a robot you don’t think of them having those kinds of traits. Now a robot that likes baseball is something I have never heard of. The setting of Warped Labs is in Philadelphia just minutes from where I live, so naturally Glitch would be a Phillies fan (though the character has stated that he has the ability to listen to every major league game and the Japan league as well). Wally is too busy solving the Galaxy’s problems to follow sports and he’s perplexed how this love for the game manifested in Glitch, seeing as how he never programmed him for such a thing.
Glitch is not happy with how the Phillies played last year. Neither am I, but we’re both looking forward to the 2015 season.
Thanks for everyone who came out to the Philadelphia Comic-Con this past Sunday. The weather was horrendous but many of you braved the elements to be rewarded with a great time. My wife, Lillia, and I had a lot of fun meeting all the fans and making new friends. Don’t worry if you missed us this time. We will be back soon. Warped Cosmos will definitely have a booth at Philly Wizard World May 7-10. More details to follow.
More appearances at local conventions are planned as well. There are some great cons in the area we would like to participate in. Hope to see all of you real soon.
The Kepler mission has discovered many new worlds outside our solar system during its three year mission. The latest news on two of Kepler’s discoveries are worlds with similar mass and orbits like our own Earth. Kepler-438b and Kepler-442b are the latest in a long list of discoveries from the Kepler mission.
We need more creative and imaginative names than Kepler-438b and Kepler 442b. Let’s start naming them from other mythological tales like the Greek and Roman mythological beings were used in the naming of celestial bodies in our Solar System. I’m sure there are plenty of names we can find.
The amount of celestial bodies in the heavens needing names I think we will run out of mythological source material. There needs to be a hierarchy then to cull from to name future discoveries. I propose that after all mythological names are exhausted we move to cartoon characters. Comet Scooby, Planet Shagy, orbiting the star of Flintstone. These are much more memorable names and will inspire the youth of today to become the scientist and engineers of tomorrow.
Problem is solved.
