Comics 31-33

Comic 31
Comic 32

Those two comics were part of an attempted "Three-comics-in-one-day" day thing...
Anyway it failed as I'm having trouble finding a suitable font for a ringing telephone sound affect. If anyone has any ideas what would look good (and a link to where it can be downloaded from) I would love to know.

This strip is a guest comic and it rocks.

This following bit is edited from a post I made on the Smack Jeeves site.

Here is an extra special guest comic from one of the creators of Red Zone (http://redzone.comicgenesis.com) known as moonshadow, sent to me as part of The Webcomic List's Secret Santa.Link here.

Unfortunately (and this is because I'm an idiot sometimes) I forgot to check what details my Secret Santa wanted posted on the site, sooooo...

I linked the comic in their signature (which I can't read because Norton hates me) and posted their forum user-name.

Also (and this bit isn't on the Smack Jeeves rant) here is the image as it was sent to me without my over zealous use of the colour (or more correctly shade) black.

Plus as part of the same Secret Santa I did this comic right here.

Also (and this is the end of this rant) if you don't get the second comic, search "Monty Python Spanish Inquisition" on youtube. If you don't at least chuckle once you are no longer my friend.

30 Filler Sketch

Filler sketch thing

My computer is screwy.

I'll have a proper comic for Tuesday but at the moment, with my computer behaving how it is, trying to do anything more taxing in paintshop than sticking two layers together and adding some text will more than likely drive me completely round the bend.

Edit: I've entered another comic to webcomicbattle.com. I'm not sure what time the new battles go up but go vote for me please. ^_^

You know you want to.

29 Back at the library

Comic 29

Another Tuesday and another comic up.
Not much else to add about it really.

Edit: Vote for me. I need your votes.

I've entered one of my comics over at webcomicbattle.com and it's up for voting on today.

A quick explanation of how that works:

All the comics that are entered for a particular day are paired up at random. Any visitor to the site can vote (registration not needed) and you go through all the pairs voting for your favourite in each. The winner of each pair goes through to the next day and the next and the next, until it gets paired with something much funnier or people get bored of looking at the same comic over and over again.

Anyway, it's a really god site and you should go look.

28 Wrong Rabbit

Comic 28

Just a single panel strip today. I'm not entirely happy with the magician but I still wanted to post it. I will be continuing the current story arc on Tuesday but I wanted to post this and although I could wait until the current arc finishes that won't be for a while and I don't like sitting on strips for too long. It's bad enough that I have two Christmas strips finished already.

Speaking of which (subtle changing of topic there) there's going to be a couple of extra strips over Christmas. I'm going to be doing normal strips up to and including Tuesday the 19th (so three more in other words) and then I'll be posting Christmas strips on Saturday the 23rd, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I'm not quite sure what's happening with Boxing Day yet as I should be doing a guest strip swap but that's not sorted out yet, so it may still be another comic from me.

After that it'll be back to the story again and back to two updates a week with one of them maybe being the guest strip if I don't post one Boxing Day and end up doing one myself that day. Confused yet?

26 and 27 Can William fix it? and Time Travel Nonsense

Comic 26
Comic 27

There's a double update today due to the fact that Blogger beta is satanic.

Or buggy.
Or just extremely busy.

Anyway I couldn't log in at all over the weekend. I just kept getting "Service Unavailable". Evil evil blogger.

No news to update anyone on but I might as well say something so I'll mention that I rented The Cat Returns (Studio Ghibli anime) from the library the other day and it is fantastic. I've watched it twice and noticed one continuity error. Either they did a good job making sure there weren't any horrible mistakes or I did a bad job of spotting them. Either way a very good movie.

I'll watch it again tonight probably (it's a seven day rental) and take it back tomorrow. I'll probably rent another one at the same time.

Considers the idea of using the blog to do reviews of movies, books and comics. Shakes head and decides that's a silly idea.
