Some Web-like Changes We’ve made a few changes to the site over the last couple of weeks, and rather just wait until you haphazardly come across them, I thought I’d point out a couple I wanted to highlight. Thusly- Comments
Welcome to the year 2014. The last couple of weeks we’ve been a bit signal dark here at PvP and Table Titans. Part of that was due to the holidays, but we’ve also been very busy here behind the scenes preparing for a lot of cool things that are about to go down in Q1 2014. Thanks to Table Titans and Mappy we have a lot of new readers who just really have no idea where to dive into PvP. For that reason our site is getting a much needed facelift which we’ll be debuting soon. And we’re going to launch with a new story-arc that will help introduce new readers to our characters for the first time.
December 31, 2013As mentioned in late October, I did a piece for the Nelvana of the Northern Lights Kickstarter. Shouri provided the gorgeous colors. You can check it out here and here. See you in the new year!
On an unrelated note, I did a series of sketches of Sixx having fun with various partners I thought you all might enjoy : Well folks, as you probably noticed, there’s no new comic up for Friday. For the first time since I started this comic way back when, I’m going to have to take a sick day.
As you know, I’m an independent cartoonist using the Web as the primary distribution for my work. I don’t work under a syndicate, and I don’t have an employer in the traditional sense. Actually. You’re my employer. You and a few thousand others who stop by and read the comic on a regular basis.
I don’t know what it is that makes me go for This Early Access game over That One. Independent of any philosophical considerations, Early Access as a business and cultural practice means different things, in just that way that a beta from Company X is more like an alpha, and a beta from GmbH ß is a relentless, rigorously polished marketing vehicle. So, I often give Early Access stuff a pass until it is closer to Regular Access just to give it room to breathe. Everybody is telling me Starbound is a thing, if not the thing, but just absorbing the rulebooks from all these skirmishy tabletop feasts rolling in lately has occupied most of my upstairs meat.
SORE THUMBS by Owen Gieni and Chris Crosby ABOUT SORE THUMBS (courtesy of Comixpedia) Sore Thumbs is a manga-style webcomic drawn by Owen Gieni and written by Chris Crosby, which started on March 8, 2004. It is more or less an allegory of the current political landscape in America. Sore Thumbs mainly centres on the trials of Fairbanks Greensworthington and his sister Cecania. The focus of the comic is the Sore Thumbs Video games store, which Fairbanks owns; Cecania, Harmony and Sawyer are employees there. The strip frequently makes use of bizarre and incongruous similes and metaphors, and there is a running gag wherein Mario (the Nintendo character) is supposed to look like a penis.
Friday, January 10, 2014 | 10:42 AM | by Tim Playstation Now looks great. A decent compromise to backwards compatibility, the service will allow people to stream older games to their devices, like an OnLive for Playstation games. If it works, it will be pretty cool. I have to wonder, though, if anyone at Microsoft is scratching their heads regarding the favorable reaction to this announcement so far. Playstation Now is a strictly digital service... which means in order to benefit from it, you need a good internet connection.
Look who's coming back for Xmas! by Matt on 12.22.2013 It's Sad Larry! We're bringing this week's short a little early, too! This Tuesday, Xmas Eve. Or if you're a season pass holder, you get it a day early as usual!
I am launching a book tonight! November 27, 2013 Tonight, Half-Cat: A Partial History, a book that I collaborated on, will be launching in Toronto at 8pm after receiving $14,349 of Kickstarter support.
