In Honour Of Those Lost - Little Xena and Gabrielle September 11

10 years ago a horror was unleashed on the United States and I doubt anyone on this planet isn't aware of the significance of this date 9/11. Lucia drew some artwork soon after that horrendous day that pays tribute / remembers those that lost their lives on that day.

Thank you Lucia. click on the image for the larger version

Little Xena and Gabrielle Comic Strips by Lucia Revised Strips


The Xenaverse has some spectacular artists and one of the best is Lucia (aka Lootcha). September 1999 was the year we were introduced to two very animated characters - Little Xena and Little Gabrielle. I fell in love with them the moment I saw them and the Xenaverse was entertained us with their antics. Lucia went on to draw some INCREDIBLE art of the bigger versions of Xena and Gabrielle and other characters.

Lucia has sent in her revised versions of Little Xena and Gabrielle in English as well as her native Portuguese. There are 53 comic strips which you can enjoy (and there are some in French as well).

You can download the individual strips or the complete 53 pieces in a zipped file.

Ted Raimi Wants Lucy To Guest on Web Series Morbid Minute

ImageTed Raimi seems truly happy directing Morbid Minute, his new horror anthology web series for Raimi has appeared in nearly 100 movies and TV shows, including genre favorites like the Evil Dead films, Candyman, Shocker, Midnight Meat Train, Drag Me to Hell, and Maniac Cop 3. Now the actor steps behind the camera for Morbid Minute, which he is writing and directing.

He was asked if any of his friends will be making an appearance on the show. His answer?

In a few months I am hoping to shoot an episode with my old buddy Bruce Campbell. I'd also like to get my old friends Lucy Lawless and, if I ask real nicely, Jeffrey Combs. So I am looking forward to shooting more.

Do you have roles planned for all of them?

I have roles for all of them. I have a stack of stories at home written for them.

Xena and The Rugby World Cup in New Zealand?


What do you mean there is no connection between Xena and The Rugby World Cup? Other than the pic to the left which was a promo for Xena on NZ TV which read "Even Lomu Doesn't Crunch Tackle Like Xena" back in the day.

The Rugby World Cup opening ceremony taking place in Auckland this Friday, 9th September. Expected audience in the worldwide millions.

Where is the Xena connection? The Director of choreography and Head of costumes are - Shona McCullagh and Jane Holland :-) Both of whom worked on Xena.

[Shona was featured on the Who's Gurkhan? behind the scenes footage, she was seen teaching both Lucy & Renee their respective dances. Jane took over from Ngila from Season 5 and appears in a couple of interviews on the Season 5 and Season 6 DVDs]

and here

This reminded me of a music video by Neil Finn which featured Lucy and the fantastic All Blacks (as an Aussie I should be barracking for the Aussie team but...I'm going to let this slide) for the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Neil Finn is one half of the kiwi supergroup Split Enz (Australia keeps wanting to claim them as ours...yeah right...). Lucy was invited to be a part of the music video and she accepted. Lucy was pregnant with Julius at the time.


there is also an interview with Lucy about the music video. The interview was originally sent to me in rm format and by today's standards wasn't a crisp copy but it's a great interview - it was done back in 1999 by NZJester (thanks!)
