06/18/17-My intention here was to have some political comics or at least comics in the style of politcal comics. But, in keeping things abstract and ironically distant enough, I removed pretty much anything political about them. The only thing remaining is the naked contempt and hostility toward people who disagree with me on some abstract issue. Drawing graphic violence and suffering really helps me blow off steam, which, again, is almost certainly healthy. Psychology-wise I mean.
05/14/17-These are some of my favorite comics in a while. Several side-characters, long forgotten, now get another chance to shine, since the original cast and universe have been destroyed. The Kid Necromancer + Detective Kid team-up in particular is something I've wanted to do for a while. Also, I want to try to get a little more exposure for my stuff, so I want to cut up all the bad comic 4-packs into individual strips in separate "shareable" images, with a url tacked on maybe. And if I could figure out a way to make the site work well for phones that'd probably be a good idea.
04/16/17-Hey whats going on with the continuity!? Comic violence shouldn't have consequences. Next comic will be in a month or so, 5/16-ish. So take note of that, I guess, one person who reads this text.
04/02/17-"Whoops I accidentally killed several million peoples! live and learn". Hhere is the next set of comics. I managed to not catch up, but I'm going to update again in 2 weeks anyway. Does anyone read this text? If you read this say it to me in an email or on twitter. Wait do I even link to those on here???
03/05/17-Did I say march 4? I meant march 5 of course. I didn't manage to get another set done, so the next update will be in 4 weeks, April 2 or something like that. I had an idea for comics that wasn't funny but I just couldn't move past it, so I've been tryink to work in enough side jokes to make them worth the time. Regarding the gags in this update, you all remember the "rat lord" character introduced in one strip 4 years ago, right. and how he wanted a cheer leader. Whattt??? no?? here are links: 1, 2. Oh, it was 6 years haha good grief
02/19/17-The orc-watching gunman is from the party of hipster adventurers that have been featured here several times. In the past I forgot to draw his tatoos, and I didn't want to cos its a pain, but it seemed necessary to the character even though it's pretty much an extra so who cares?? any way, I have two more sets done in the "buffer" so let's say the next update will be March 4?? ok?
01/22/17-Oh, I misremembered when I uploaded last. I finished the next batch a while ago, but wanted to get onto a regular schedule. Anyway, there will definitely be more comics about 1 month from now, unless I become homeless or die or what have you.
12/16/16-Well, it was not quicker. This batch was, in fact, slower. I should have just spent my buffer a month ago, then I'd have a decent continuity. But at a month per update it doesn't make much difference huh. Anyway the power-level revue is one of my best gags in a long time, imo. Also I have never actually seen The Parallax View. ALSO!! I noticed a terrible mistake! In swapping two comics between batches, somehow one didn't take, so there was a duplication! I fixed the image and uploaded it, but right now at least the server is insisting on showing me the old one, so who knows...... ..
OK it worked, here is the link to modified comic: "The Classic Link Text"
10/03/16-I finished another batch of comics for the buffer so here's this one, my favorite of the 3, probably. That's the stilll-beating heart of Trolleyman Beireia has in the second one. (spoilers!) uuuuhhh... I can't think of anything else to say, hopefully I can get the next batch out quicker.
09/11/16-...And then an even longer gap! Gah! Well, basically the domestic situation had gradually developed to where I couldnt do comics at all, then about a month ago I, not to over-share, got a prescription for adderall and now I can make comics again. I have a full other set ready to upload - what is known in the webcomics biz as a "buffer". Anyway! hopefully this will usher in a new era of comics, but at the very least you've got one more set to look forward to!
02/03/16-Whoa! such a long time! The computer I used to handle comics finally went down for the last time. (it's from 2006) So, I bought a newer one (2008) on ebay, which took a while. But I finally got it properly working! And even the scanner, which is even older, works! So, here are some comics! I saw the new star wars and was inspired by the JJ Abrams-style fast-paced story developments that make sense scene-to-scene, but not so much if you think back a few. Hence, Dark Brandon. One thing that I haven't been able to get working again is pngcrush, which used to cut the filesize in half from photoshop's bloated codec (or whatever it is). I don't know if anyone cares in this day n age, but I'll still try to get it down.
10/11/15-Bweh! comics. The first one requires you to remember the last set, from 3 months ago, and the last one, I don't think there's anyone else in the world who studies anole threat displays enough to enjoy that but whatever! I wanted to do it
07/26/15-Gee whiz, it's been a long time. This batch was a lot of fun to do, but... I don't know if other entities will enjoy them... the lack of a real joke structure / a punchline is a common theme in Irritability, but it's taken kind of to an extreme here. Oh well! That's what I like to do, presumably you wouldn't be here if you minded! I will try to have the next batch done sooner this time.
05/26/15-Wah! Sorry it's been so long! I've been focusing more on other projects but it'll still be a long time before any of them are ready to show. Hope you like these comics! I think they are some of the least accessible I've done in awhile! I always swing back and forth on how I feel about strips though, maybe these are same as normal.
04/02/15-Blugh, I tried to get these out 11:59 on March 31, but it didn't quite happen. I like these ones, i.e. they are dumb as hell. enjoy (tilde key is broken)
01/31/15-Haw! I made it a point to squeeze out an update before the end of Jamuary, and I did it! I'm to drunk and tired to put anything useful here, though. I'll come back later.
12/02/14-Wow! Only a month between updates! I want to try to spend the rest of the year in a vain attempt to get a regular strip up before this 2014 is over, but the script I have is pretty long and a bit art-intensive, so don't hold your breath. You shouldn't try to hold your breath for 29 days or whatever, anyway. These comics... I am really fond of the ideas in each one but... I had to use so many damn words and the core of the gags still isn't really conveyed well in any of them... Oh well, I am still pretty happy with em. I think I had sometihng more to say? can't remember. watch this space for more words, maybe.
11/02/14-haha well, here are some more comics! I kind of want to make a animation for Chappy's spinning jump attck. Probably I should use any time I can on more comics. Speaking of which, sorry these took so long, but there's not much else that I could have done... I didn't have any ideas I liked!! also, we got sick a few times, kids, etc. excuses excuses.
9/01/14-I wanted to have these done yesterday so I could say "at least I didn't let a whole month pass without posting anything", but that's not how things turned out. With a lot of comics I first decide what's going to happen and then I try to figure out how to make it funny. And in others I have a punnish phrase I want to say and have to come up with the convoluted setup. Both of these types are represented here, try 2 figure out which is which!! There was something else I wanted to say here, but as usual, it's late and I'm tired and don't remember. Oh yeah, this is the second time Chappy has met an alternate version of himself. I was going to have dimensional warlord version mention that Exoth had, in their timeline, died young, and it would be implied that, without him around to lean on for smarts, Chapy had to develop competence, so he xuccedeed the throne instead of Velel, conquered the planet + other dimensions, etc. But I din't have space for it.
7/14/14-Well well well. look who's still alive and made some comics. So many stupid things happened to prevent these strips from being realized. For the last three weeks we've all been pretty sick and I still am. Anyway, hopefully this one long delay will just be a fluke. I think my rss doesn't work anymore though, I don't know what to do about that...
