Must Have Been Count Chocula

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/4 (Comics)

Holy CRAP.

Holy crap, it's been a while, hasn't it? Yeah. Far too long. First of all, let me totally apologize for my sudden disappearance. I... really don't have a good excuse. It all started with being sick right after Easter, and from there just went totally downhill. No, it wasn't swine flu, but rather a combination of writing final exams, being stuck with writer's block and having to move out that just sapped any will I had for doing a comic. I felt bad about not updating, and I got a few emails from those asking if I was alright. Thanks for the concern, everyone, but I can assure you all that I'm fine. I guess I just needed a break for a while to recharge my batteries. In any event, I'll thank everyone for being patient enough to bear with no updates for a month and with my general selfishness, but that's in the past.

So here's a comic for today (technically this is tomorrow's update, but I'm doing it early since it's been so long), and I'm hoping this whole regular updates thing can continue for a while at least...

He Makes Himself Clear

Hey look, another update on time! I was afraid I wasn't going to get this done yesterday, but I managed to surprise myself. So here it is!

Filler: Spoiler Warning

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/14 (Comics)


Okay, so I'm behind again. Yeah, I suck. But at least this time, I'm offering you some filler while I work on a real comic. Mostly writer's block again, but I'm getting past that now. I just need to figure out how I'm going to present it so as to not give anything away before I planned to...

Anyway, enjoy this in the meantime. If anyone is wondering, the list of TV shows I referenced in this comic are, in order of appearance; Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly, Lost, Breaking Bad and Dollhouse. And yes, it was fun coming up with that little speech.

Riddle Me This

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/19 (Comics)

And a full comic, a little later than I wanted, but I figured I would post it early to make up a bit. Updates could be sporadic, in case you didn't already figure that part out, since the next part of the story is proving tricky to write. But it WILL be told!

On Reputations

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/21 (Comics)

Updating a bit later than I would have liked, but it's still on time. As I said a while ago, the next story arc would contain a lot of answers. Well, brace yourselves, cause there's a lot more of them coming from here. Tongue

Don't Ask

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/25 (Comics)

Uploading this comic early for my lack of one this weekend. Also, so I can give myself more time to work on the next one. The next few comics are... Not going to be fun to do, and may end up being even less fun to read. ...I shouldn't be telling you this, should I?

It's a Wonder it Took Him This Long

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/28 (Comics)

Since I'm sure you guys are getting antsy, I'm posting this issue early too. Hopefully I can keep this back-story going with updates before I have to disappear again.

Oh, and feel free to start the wild fan theories any time. You're going to have a lot to work with after this. Tongue


Finally, as an aside, for anyone interested in reading about my history in comic-making, I recently posted a thread about it on Giantitp.com, which you can find here. There's a lot of stuff in there, and if you like behind-the-scenes features, then it's definitely something you should check out.

Insert Batman Joke Here

posted by Jordan on 2009/5/30 (Comics)


So we solved the mystery of one pair of ominous, glowing eyes only to have it replaced by another. I need new ideas, man.

Actually, that's the problem I faced with these back story issues. I wanted to make sure you guys knew the general situation, but not reveal too many appearances, Arderas being one of the most important ones. But I didn't really see any way around it, so there's a bit of a tease. It's the same reason I thought these comics wouldn't be fun to read, but I'm thinking I lied to you guys about that. I've written serious dialogue before, but I always manage to squeeze in some jokes that come to me as I make it. Anyway, I'll shut up and let you enjoy the comic over the weekend.

...Since that's probably how long it'll take you to read it.
