December 16, 2012: I've invoked the
scary "H" word, even though there already
seemed to have been a hiatus between every
comic update. Well, now it's official.
My free time dwindles more and more, so I
need to admit to myself that regular updates
are out of the question. During this
hiatus I will try to figure out what kind of
work I even want to be doing. I've
gotten pretty lazy in the joke-writing
department. I'd accept the flimsiest
excuse for a joke as long as it gives me
something fun to draw. Perhaps that's
a sign I should focus on illustration.
But then again I've always wanted try a
plot-driven comic. Regardless, I'll
return if and when I can update with better
quality and quantity.
UPDATE: I forgot to
mention that I plagiarized
myself by using an old sketch to
draw the the head of the guy
pounding the path in the comic
above. The original sketch is

put a whole lot of effort into a
drawing that supports a pretty
corny gag. Eh, whatta ya gonna
do? (Write better jokes, Crispy.
Oh, hey. Here's this:
Galoot. Is he hero or villain?
Who knows? Who cares. His belt
buckle reads "Y.E.S." as if to
answer your question, "Will he
be kicking my ass today?"
This is the only remaining page
of a long-lost, bizarre, old
comic worth a quite a few big
bucks in collectors' circles.
And it just so happens to be
Just kidding. It's just some
silliness I drew and edited to
look old. The text in the speech
bubble is the title of a track
by the band Tortoise. It seemed
like a good threat/catch phrase
for a weirdo character.
Oh, by the way, here's the video
for "Prepare Your Coffin":
