By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; January 30, 2016)      Happy Concept Art Day! Okay, this may not actually be an official holiday, but today, we're celebrating with tons of new concept art on the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Wiki! We've just uploaded this piece, and we'll be uploading tons more throughout the day!      This concept sketch is a preliminary design for the Mob Boss from The Kingfisher and is graphite and markers on copy paper. You can see that this character's design stayed relatively the same, with his face being the only element that was drastically changed. You can see it in place on the film's page by clicking here. This is part of our aforementioned move to upload all of our photos from our archives to the wiki in order to allow for more fan engagement. If we don't have it all uploaded today, then we should be done by the end of tomorrow at the latest.      In other news, we should know next week whether or not Brand…

Today, we are sad to announce that, after just one year, the comic series Out of His Time has been discontinued. The last comic was posted today and can be read by clicking here. So why did this comic series end? We have a few reasons, as outlined here. We need to get Journey To Siberia completed before DINO ATTACK: Saga of a Conflict debuts July 1. By ending Out of His Time, this frees up resources and time for the other two comics.The needed canon information on how Ulysses met Dr. Cyber is provided in the seven comic strips.There was a loss for inspiration on what to do with O…

OurToyWorld writes: Since Michael Whalen cannot play Steve Kenlow, I was wondering if this means that Michael Whalen will be leaving the role of Lance Spears. Please clarify. And also, not trying to be mean, yet this article didn't make that much sense. Mark: For the time being, Michael Whalen is still playing Lance Spears. And if this article didn't make sense to you, that's okay. Most of it is backstage policy changes and corporate decisions t…
