Hello

It’s been a LONG time.

 

What have you been up to? I’ve been creating stuff: https://mrdaveryan.tumblr.com/

Specifically, here’s a little story I actually finished:  http://tardypiggy.tumblr.com/

 

And for Muthas fans in particular, the story picks up a few years later: http://scrapplekings.tumblr.com/

 

I miss you.

Sorry the site was broken.

From beyond the grave

It ain’t over, my sweet babies. I was burned out, but now I’m itching to get back into it. I have some real world shit to take care of first and then it’s on. April’s not unrealistic. I’ve been inspired by the return of Hunter X Hunter.

I don’t plan to finish this Fran arc or continue the story from this point. We’re going to time-skip a year or two into the future to a point that will be more focused and fun to write I think. This will probably be on a new website. I’ll be sure to keep you all informed.

As a reward to those who hung around this long and want to know what happens in the current storyline:

SPOILER ALERT well sorta, I don’t know if this stuff will ever be conveyed in comic form

Fran gets a unicorn. The next trial, each challenger is assigned a little jello-like monster to defend within the a monster filled haunted hotel. Fran doesn’t like his monster, spends the whole trial trying to kill it and inadvertently wins. Due to an observational error Shizzle is also still around so those two contestants have to face off in a final round duel. Shizzle kills the big fat king guy. Fran eats the “fruit” from his jell-o monster which turns out to be a mushroom and his teleported back.

Next chapter – Robos trick a Black Diamond squad (Delta 7) to besiege the magical veterinary hospital to get at McFly. Delta quickly realizes the trick (McFly is long gone anyway) and engages the brown robo set. They kill the general who has earth powers. It’s a pretty cool fight. Elsewhere Frank Black and Otis try to assassinate the robo queen but are intercepted by some White Hearts. That fight is also cool.

Provoked by this attempt, the main robo army declares war and is on the move with their fancy new weapons. They are almost completely annihilated by some Blue Circle forces due to their fancy weapons actually being pretty crappy. The Queen and the generals escape and cause trouble all up and down the borderlands and some Blue Circle edge towns. This tags them with a record record bounty.

So every tough guy in the area wants a piece and after some really epic shit, Ralph and Eugene and a few other friends have the queen on the ropes but some kid in a super hero costume and smashes her head in with a baseball bat, stealing all the glory.

There’s a lot in between, but that’s the gist of it.

I still live

Hey kids. Been a while. I apologize to those of you who are still checking in and not finding updates and I really do appreciate the commitment.

I haven’t updated in a while because I’m not sure where I’m going from here. The best part of the comic has always been when I post a new page and get to read your comments. But everything leading up to that has increasingly become more and more of a chore. That’s no good. I’ve been trying to find a way to make the whole process fun and whether that’s a new approach or a new project all together, I don’t know.

I’d like to finish this chapter, but I make no guarantees. I played with the idea of making a game, but that’s not looking too feasible at this point. Odds are, I’ll start a new comic, same world, same characters, but a few years down the road from the current timeline and with a more focused plot.

We shall see.

Interview with ComixTalk

I did an interview with comixtalk.com a little while back. A few of you might find it interesting.

ALSO: Don’t forget to check out the hot crossover action at Ned the Chainsaw Guy.

Page 104 – Ugly Little

It is up in full color glory.

I had the Sci-fi channel on while I colored this page. They were airing some kind of crappy dragon movie mini-marathon. It started with Dragon Wars or something like that. Not worth looking up the title. Next was Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God. It was actually OK. Last was Dragon Sword. Seriously. It’s still on right now and it’s actually not that bad either. It has a bizarrely well known cast – Patrick Swayze, Michael Clark Duncan, Val Kilmer. The star is the somewhat lesser known James Purefoy. He was awesome as Marc Antony in HBO’s Rome and I’ll probably watch the rest of the movie due to his inclusion.

Speaking of Rome, Titus Pullo (Ray Stevenson) is playing the new Punisher. AND McNulty (Dominic West) from the Wire plays the villain, Jigsaw. Too bad the movie looks like ass.

Goodbye, my loves

I’ve been on this hiatus for a while. I’ve read some books, watched some movies and played a lot of videogames. I gotta say, I’m loving all this extra time…

Let’s face it, this comic thing isn’t going anywhere. It’s generic and derivative. The art isn’t that good, and the writing is even worse. Time to call it quits and focus on my cartography.

I appreciate the support, those that stuck around, and in honor of y’all, one last image:

Psyche! Did I get ya? Nah, you’re too quick for that. Don’t worry about me, kids. I think my comic is the shit and I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon. Update this week. Show some love with some hot vote action: Preview of update and another new character.

It’s a police lineup

I’ve jazzed up the web page a bit. You like?

It’ll probably look a little funky in Internet Explorer 6 because of the lack of .png or transparency support or something. Which is absurd because .pngs are very pleasant once you get to know them… time to upgrade, son!

I’m working I swear!

See:

It’ll be late, as usual. Blame Harry Potter if you like. I’ve finished reading, but now I have to work on a school project. It’s not a new comic exactly, but it’s something ya’ll might like. It’s due a week from tomorrow so expect to see something by then.

As for the book, it was great.
