Sluggy Freelance - Comic for 10/26/10

Sluggy Freelance - Comic for 10/26/10
I've been making so many mistakes with this Mohkdaun story that it's making me relatively angry with myself. I sometimes wonder if I just can't handle the breadth and scope of my creation. This here is one of them days. So last Thursday (April 10th) I have Torg blurt out, in response to the unbelievable coincidence Wilcott was providing: "So you expect me to believe Riff is related to the Mohkadun God of Justice, my pet bunny is the Mohkadun God of Power, and we’re all called Sluggy Freelance? Seriously?" I've established there is a connection between Torg, Riff, and Bun-bun, all three being somehow tied to the name 'Sluggy'. but I didn't reveal the origination of 'Freelance'.

Least I Could Do: the Webcomic » by Ryan Sohmer and Lar deSouza Technology Is Not Your Friend 18 years ago today Help Desk appeared for the first time on a web site devoted to news about an operating system some of you may not even remember these days. Each complete comic had to be under 12-15k in size in order for it to load in a reasonable amount of time on a 28.8 modem—15k was pushing it. The first comic was 12.8k in size, and my artistic ability was even worse than it is today. I know that's hard to believe, so here's proof: That was the very first comic I ever published. It's... not even particularly funny, to be honest. Casey and Andy Note: The current story-arc begins at Strip 621 August 25, 2008: Well, there you have it. Strip 666, and the end of Casey and Andy. I am so greatful to all of you for reading my comic.

Bande dessinée sur ordinateur (1984) décembre 11th, 2010 Posted in Bande dessinée, Images, Mémoire, Vintage Le mensuel Zoulou est un grand souvenir pour moi. Lancé en avril 1984 et lié à Actuel, ce journal de bande dessinées a fait entrer la culture punk et chic des « graphzines » et de Bazooka dans les kiosques, de manière peut-être encore plus radicale que Métal Hurlant ou L’Écho des Savanes. Goblins Nukees, The Atomic Comic Strip Tiny Kitten Teeth Becky recently introduced me to an awful band, responsible for a song called C’mon Ride That Train, as well as the theme to Space Jam. I thought it was C’Mon Ride The Bus, so I guess the whole strip title thing has fallen apart. There is a great song called Waiting For The Bus by the Violent Femmes.

The Dreamland Chronicles » The Dreamland Chronicles by Scott Christian Sava Appel du numérique Le groupement BD du SNAC lance une opération de mobilisation des auteurs, afin de réagir contre ce qui se met en place en ce moment en matière de politique numérique chez les éditeurs de bande dessinée. En effet, dernièrement, les annonces de développement numérique se sont de brusquement multipliés : plate-forme Iznéo lancée par Média-Participations à l'occasion du prochain salon du livre (plate-forme que les ouvrages de Casterman et Bamboo devraient rejoindre dans le même mouvement), accord de Glénat avec Ave Comics (la rémunération prévue pour les auteurs est exactement la même que pour les livres papiers), etc, etc. Rappelons que cela fait deux ans que le syndicat tente de lancer une vraie discussion sur le numérique avec nos amis éditeurs et qu'il n'a jamais obtenu, au mieux, que des paroles rassurantes, au pire une fin de non-recevoir. Pour signer la pétition, rendez-vous là :

Schlock Mercenary - The Comic Space Opera by Howard Tayler A Girl and Her Fed: Archive No Thursday comic this week. I've drawn parts of this comic three times and it's not working in really awful ways. I might need to do some rewriting, which would be a shame. I've been looking forward to doing a practical joke story arc. Anyhow.
