Why I Love Comics

Blogspot won't let me make the
 image bigger, so if you can't zoom in,

*Tunes of the Day: Cartoon Heroes by Aqua*

Holy crud! It's finally done! Yeesh, this was long. Largest strip I've done for the site (took 2 full sheets of my 17"x6" board) plus the largest amount of images and largest amount of times my computer decided to crap out at me at the last minute. So this is what I actually planned last week.

A few weeks ago I’ve was going through a bit rough state. Combination of creative block, my health (again) and just really not nice things going on. But it was all the sheer amount of stupid and jack-assery going on in the comic industry lately was the camel that broke the straw's back... you heard me.

Oh, don’t worry, I’m feeling better now. That’s why over dramatic comic is over dramatic. But, I was emotionally at the point where I wasn't sure if I wanted to draw comics anymore.

And then I picked up Animal man 7, The amazing Spider man 681, Glory 1, Venom 13.2 and the preview book for Avengers vs x-men, found out that X-23 is getting one more issue...

...and gave myself a good kick in the face for being so stupid (much harder then it looks)

I love comics.

I will always love comics.

Sure, it's easy to get worked up or caught up in something that seems little. But I go up on my soap box and write about all these things because I LOVE comics! I want the industry to be a better place, I don't want to see my childhood cartoon heros get turned into sluts, or see my childhood real-life heroes get wronged. Comics at their best and I want to show that best to other people!

So, since I badly needed to do something to cheer myself up, I'm going to completely rip off Bob Chipman's rip off of the Film Critic Hulks article (yes, i know i got the titles wrong in the strip, sorry) and just... list why I like comics. Just making the list put a good feeling back into me. Feel free to rip me off and make your own

SlugTrails: Lets Players and Gaming Fan Works

All right, I’ll admit it, this is coming completely last minute. Some things came up this week, and two articles I had planned next are taking a wee bit longer then planned. I even tried to do something really short, but it isn’t happening. So, another Slug Trails, yay!

Oh shoosh.

So, on with today’s topic: Games

I'm a little obsessed with video games. But I royally suck at them. I don’t have much talent for it, I don’t have the money to buy them. So to feed my obsession, I watch lets plays and walkthroughs. And I feed it even more with the many game related fan works. So I thought I’d share my obsession a little!

It should also be said that the majority of these are MATURE.
