Another (pseudo)comic that’s somewhat ripped from real life. Exaggerated for comedic effect.

Only did this as a quickie as I’m still getting all my arts stuff set up on the shiny new machine - all my old layout templates and settings and stuff still needs to be extracted from m y (mostly) dead desktop.

The good/bad thing about the whole Indie Games Thing is that even my creaking, groaning computer can run some of the more recent titles on the Steam sale (which finished yesterday - really should figure out a faster drawing workflow if I’m going to try topical humour).

I suppose this comic is technically spoilers, but not really.

This was written and mostly drawn before the finale.  The big moment wasn’t quite as epic as I’d hoped, but still worth it.  

And now I’ve discovered that Stannis is, in fact, a Praying Mantis.

In FACT, I said.

EDIT: Added credit for Panel 3.  Ripped from real life, it was!

Sometimes I remember that this comic should occasionally have a topic vaguely associated with its title.

I’m actually kinda intrigued with Tyranny of Dragons.  Previous editions have always been a bit stingy in the giant elemental lizard department (even Dragonlance had them mostly serving as mounts for humanoid baddies), so making fighting the things a major part of the story should hopefully be a Good Thing.

As for the 5th edition itself, I subscribe to the Dungeon Bastard school of thought regarding Edition Wars: 

Oh, and for any uninitiated, they’re playing Watch_Dogs.

The Mountain and the Viper by AnotherMark

Felt the fanart urge again.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled comic.  Hah, “regularly scheduled”.

Heroine’s Quest is a cool game.  Very much in the vein of classic Quest For Glory, complete with the skill-grinding and terrible puns.

I was sorely tempted to swap out the generic “Switch to Communism” for “Join an anarcho syndicalist commune”.

I wish I could get my ‘stache to actually look like that.

Many thanks to everyone who liked/reblogged the Tank Girl/40k crossover fanart.  I was not expecting it to go off like that.  Full of the warm fuzzies now.

A bit of multi-fandom fanart for y’all.

Happy FCBD, y’all!

Gazz probably could’ve also pulled off Arnie’s Mr Freeze, but the Bane costume was easier to assemble in short notice - just a trip to the pet store for dog collars.

Tom Hardy’s Bane would’ve just require a secondhand coat and a gas mask, but there’s a the whole matter of the voice

If there is a hell for artists, it is where you are forced to draw cars for all eternity.  There are only so many ways to lay out panels of the interior.

Then after finishing the art you rethink then completely scrap the original script, and have to think of something new to fit the artwork, ending up with pop culture references instead of jokes.

So yes, this one took a while.  That said, it does feel good when it’s done.
