The move is almost over!!
The move is almost over!!

Hi everyone!!

If you haven’t been following the Twitter feed and were wondering what was up with Friday’s comic, I should let you know that I managed to sandwich moving apartments in between two conventions – not the smartest move, but necessary!

What does this mean? Well, for one, it took a GIANT bite out of my buffer, since weekends are usually the time when I get the bulk of the work on my comics done, and with the past three booked solid, my sweet little buffer is looking pretty threadbare. (Read: Gone. Completely. For the first time in a loooooong time!)

For another, it means that you guys are getting an uncolored comic today. It’s not as pretty and shiny as a colored comic, I know, but I was weighing my options – either run another filler strip and put of the Geek Moot storyline a little longer, (which, given how much fun you guys are having with it, and how much fun I’m having drawing it, was pretty much unthinkable!!!), or suck it up and post it in black and white.

This one will be colored (and in fact, is partially colored, but really, really not ready to go up on the site…) shortly, and when it is, I’ll just replace it on the site and in the archives. But, for now, at least you guys get the chance to look at some naked lineart! It’s kind of a behind-the-scenes thing. Yeah, that’s it…

    It’s ok I guess, if you put some more Details here and there you could even utilize this Style for some special Storylines.
    Maybe some Blade Runner-esque Noir stuff.

    Is it just me or is that Abbie and Sarah I can see over Marks right shoulder in frame 3?

    Could be; of course, once we see the colored version, we’ll know for sure.

    I’m really loving the geek moot comics and how you show the joy and revelry of a bunch of people who’ve gotten together in a safe place to do what they love.

  5. Man, I wish I could find a place like that to go to. Not only am I a closet super-geek, but I’m th ONLY closet super-geek in a five hundred mile radius! *sigh* I need to find a club or something…(mayb Geek-Anon…!) ~(;})=

    soilent – I was actually thinking of doing a black and white book sometime. Something horror-themed… Kinda like the zombie storyline!

    wargamer, Samael – Maybe… Maybe not. -innocent grin-

    Jen – Thank you!! That’s totally the feel I was going for, and I’m glad to hear that I managed it!

    cucco_kid – I bet you’re not… Check out the LarpList for something near you!

    Hmm, Satan has infested the comments… Alina even answered him. ;P
    Btw, I actually like the black and white version, I think it’s shiny. But the coloured version is a bit more… colourful?!

    Nice reference to Cuthulu in the 2nd frame….or did Revenloft use it as well?

    Just discovered this comic! And I’ve been mainlining it like crazy! Great work! I’m not a gamer in by any stretch of the imagination, but I have many online friends who are, so I get a lot of the references, and I appreciate the jokes. 🙂 My kids are into video games too. And I’m a fan of that show The Guild.

    AWESOME comic! Can’t wait to read more! I hope I can get out to make the con in Calgary my very first con ever, and I sincerely hope to see you there!

    The late night store raid feels really familiar somehow-something our geek group usually does every weekend(yes, including the sneaking)

    Hmm, the poor fellow who works at the store… He looks infected. Has he, too, become a geekanthrope?

    be patient and keep your ears open. I have always found those that have been interested no matter where I have been. Every where I have lived I have found geeks, closet and not so closet.

    You know, it’s been a while since I’ve seen that episode, but I do believe I recognize that Klingon song.
