Hey, you guys! You know, I have a Love/Hate relationship every time we come back from our end of the year break. I love that we are back, and I always have so much to tell you guys and ramble on about. But, I also hate that I have so much to tell you guys and I don’t want to over welm you in my first blog. I had a bunch of things to tell you all but I felt that it was important for me to let all of you know how much it saddens me to hear that Harold Ramis has passed away. I find it eerie that just yesterday I sat down and watched Ghostbusters with my son. Now basically I watched it and did color commentary but Zavier seemed to enjoy and that Vego became the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch. Although it was a great time watching Ghostbusters I cant get away from the sadness seeing some one who created so many great films pass. I don’t want to even get into all of them but I have to say Caddyshack is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen. Not to mention Jarv and I live our own version every year at our golf outings. This year Jarv took a fall down a hill and got up doing that horrible broken chicken wing like Rodney Dangerfield did.
I am not going to dedicate this comic year to Harold Ramis, well because everyone else is probably going to, but what we do want to do is send these comics out to everyone that remembers Harold Ramis’s movies from their youth. We always want our comics to kick you back to your past when you did all of the crazy things we talk about. So, please enjoy all of the comics that are on their way this year, and thank you all for following us. Here is this weeks installment enjoy, and until next time…
This is a pretty easy call: the comic is back!
We pick up where we left off with the story while we also bring everyone (the readers) back in time a few months. This story takes place during a New Years Eve part and over the next few weeks of this story we’ll be see setting the stage for the next few months of comics. Can’t wait to finally share these great stories with all of you and we hope to keep you all entertained throughout the year.
It’s crazy how life can throw you a curve ball that grinds all of your progress to a halt. Three days after I posted my first blog about the state of the comic I fell extremely sick with the flu. It took me about two weeks to fully feel back to normal, which seemed to be the average time of recovery from this flu. And, believe me, I’m very thankful and fortunate nothing more serious happened, considering how vicious this years flu season has been. Needless to say, I wasn’t able to accomplish much during my down time and even missed Paulie’s and my opportunity to meet up and work on the comic.
Things did end up getting better and Paulie and I met up last Friday (1-31) and accomplished some much needed work on the comic. We finalized the direction the comic will take this year, outlined a ton of new material and even got some of our convention schedule nailed down. We also set this years comic goal at 40 comics, which was our same goal last year, that we unfortunately missed by 10 comics. We may have fallen a bit short last year, but we did beat our previous years published comics by 10, so I’m happy with the improvement.
We’re really excited about bringing the comic back out, but we want to make sure we have enough finished material that we don’t end up with any missed weeks of publishing. So, we’re thinking the comic will be coming back February 10th or the 17th. We will definitely keep all of you posted and we can’t wait to start up the comic for all of you really soon.
We’ve been on a short break during the Holidays and although the main intention was to get some much needed rest, we’ve still been working behind the scenes on the comic. One change you’ll notice, is that we’ve added a donations button to the right hand side of the site. Now, I don’t want you all to think we’re asking for any kinda handout or anything but, money is one of the biggest factors to keep a small comic outfit like us going. We’re definitely not going to ram the idea of donations down your throats, we’re mostly just showing the way for kind people to show their love for the comic…with money. But, even if you don’t donate we still love you all and just showing up is and always will be the best thing you can ever do.
Next week Paulie and I will actually be meeting up and once that happens we’ll know when we’re officially coming back.
Hey, you guys! As the year is coming to a close, I don’t want to take much of your time up with my ramblings so, this week I am going to tell you a quick story. This year has been no different for me, like usual, as Christmas rolls around I always get sick. But for some reason, this year my annual sickness really hit me hard and I was down for a whole weekend. My typical sickness allows me at least to be a shambling zombie but this year I wast so lucky. I don’t know what it is about being at the pharmacy and buying things that makes me uneasy, like I’m trying to buy condoms and the cashier is judging me. “Hey, Dante, don’t judge my sexual prowess,” I thing. Anyway, not to go deep into my sickness but lets just say things left me from all directions. So, as I walked to the counter with my stomach medicine I kept thinking, ”This chick is going to think I have diarrhea.” When it was my turn I set my medicine down on the counter face down trying to be slick, but of course she had to flip it over while she scanned it. When she did I could see her reading the box, but before she could even look up I for some reason softly said, “Oh, man, I’m not going to make it.” While making this weird face where my left eye squinted,and I clenched my jaw. All while turning my head almost in pain. Just then she looked up at me, and she thought I was going to spray fart everywhere. Let me tell you, I have never had a transaction completed so fast before; it was amazing. Hell, somehow she even got my rewards card scanned in without even asking for it. After that I took my bag and started to walk to the door, but right before I left I stopped did the quick butt grab and ran out for a laugh.
So, enough about me and how I changed a CVS cashier’s life, let’s get you on to the comic. This is our last comic before we take a break for a few weeks. We hope you enjoy our last installment and the conclusion of Here Comes a New Challenger story arc. We’ll see you in a few weeks, until next time…
