Hey, you guys! As some of you have heard, last week was pretty tough for us. Michigan’s weather never seems to work with us, but last week was just ridiculous. Being without power for a week is just crazy! Just think about it. Could you imagine Jarv and I without games for a week? Now, I know we have had our weeks without them, but it’s totally different when you just can’t play games. It is all you think about, I don’t know why but I immediately wanted to take the Lions to the Superbowl in Tecmo Superbowl so badly. Which is totally weird because I have not played that game in at least 5 years. But, either way, I knew I could not play it, so of course that is all I wanted to do.
What really got me was when power came back I wanted to hit the games hard. I don’t know if you guys know but I am a little OCD when it comes to games, and I can’t start a new game till I finish the previous one. So, I wanted to get to Tecmo Superbowl, but I had to finish Duke Nukem first. I know not the best game, but I had to play it. First of all; it is a great throw back to the games that got me hooked as a kid. Not to mention it deals with all of my favorites, T&A, beer, go carts, Vegas, guns, and taking a great piss! Either way when I started the PS3 up I realized that my whole hard drive was erased and I lost all of my progress. I don’t know what it was but I immediately flashed back to my NES days. Back then when ever I was playing Mario my brother use to love to jump down the stair, which would cause the NES to bounce in the air and reset. This is one of the few things that will drive me to the point of madness and make me want to burn a nursing home to the ground, and when I saw that my hard drive was gone I went back to my dark place. Fortunately for the local seniors, my favorite bar is before the senior home, and a case of beer rendered me immobile.
But, enough of me, let’s get you all off to the comic. We have made you all wait too long for it, but also, I have to get back to Duke. Once again, we hope you guys all enjoy this weeks comic, and thank you all for following us. So, until next week…
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.
