Silvertongue 30XX: Space-Time District Attorney follows the story of Silvertongue Hernandez and a rat-pack of time-travelling lawyers, specialised in revisiting (or more like crashing), so-called “Trials of the Century” throughout space-time. Silvertongue, a selfish, dark, ego-centric, womanizer and addict, will encounter the most bizarre of adventures in search of Reality 2; a parallel multi-verse he and his motley crew are carefully crafting, which will possibly mean salvation for us all. Or, will it?

Silvertongue 30XX starts off with a short description of the characters, which helps you gather an idea of their personality. However, this isn’t necessary as the characters personalities and placement in the plot are quite clear from the beginning.
The introduction to Silvertongue 30XX creates a beautiful depiction of a coin flipping in the air, paired with script that draws the audience’s attention into the plot of the story.
The introduction continues by creating the background story via a television host. This segues into the main characters’ story nicely.
Another nice detail is the classic main characters’ conflict. The friendly rivalry between two characters on the same team always creates a humorous twist to an otherwise serious situation.
In fact, Little Nando does an impeccable job throwing humour into the plot by adding unique character quirks.
It is clear that Little Nando has put a lot of work into the script, as well as the art. The characters are depicted through exaggerated expressions and angles, giving the audience that glorious feel for your classic-comic-book-look.
On top of all the goods that Silvertongue 30XX has to offer, Little Nando throws it all together by creating an ending that ties the flipping coin from the beginning into the end. Not only does this show Little Nando’s ability for creativity, but it also shows a respect for plot flow. Out of all the stories I have read, watched, or heard, the best are always those that tie it all together perfectly from beginning to end, even if that is just a simple symbol, such as a flipping coin.
The one negative thing that I can say about Silvertongue 30XX, is that it is far too short. The plot had just planted its roots, just introduced itself and the characters. What we do now is play the waiting game, which unfortunately, I am terrible at.
It is my hope that Little Nando will continue to update Silvertongue30XX on Tapastic for free. I look forward to seeing how the plot develops and how the main characters manage to solve out the impossible case that they have been given.
Only time will tell.
