Just a quick Neutron City Comix update: The next 4 strips are currently in various stages of production. Two of them are written and ready for art and another two still need finished scripts. I also have to prepare for C2E2 in a couple of weeks so I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to get a new strip out but I wanted to assure you that they are, order in fact, coming. I also have a whole bunch of ideas for future story lines and joke strips so we shouldn’t be running out of material any tome soon. I just have to budget the time to do the actual work. I’m getting a little antsy in my pantsies.
I am taking commission requests. All of my art is kid friendly but seems to appeal to the child in everyone regardless of age. I have two different “styles” to choose from. Marker or Crayon. Marker commissions end up looking like the first 8 pictures here. The Crayon commissions will look more like the last 6 pictures.
Marker commissions start at $25 for a single character. Crayon commissions start at $10 for the first character. Additional characters will increase the price a bit but the more you add, clinic the smaller they get so it’s a sliding scale that I will work out with you before I start drawing. For inquiries or orders or just to say hi, you can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m gonna try to give you the short version so as not to bore you to death.
Ok, viagra 40mg A while back I met an artist at Wizard World Chicago named Katie Cook. She’s amazing. She’s a total nerd, pharm she loves Star Wars and all the other geek stuff, cheapest she’s an incredibly talented artist and she’s very funny. (Relax, boys. She’s married.) Do yourself a favor and go here and check her out.
At the time she had yet to start the actual webcomic. Now that she’s started, I thought I’d do another piece of fan-art for her. The original idea was to have Gronk sitting on a log, looking bummed, and being consoled by Kermit The Frog. Then I thought, “You know what? Katie also really likes The Hulk and he’s green, too.” Then when I started sketching it out I thought, “Hey, Katie also likes Star Wars and Yoda’s green as well!” It just sort of spiraled out of control from there. Enjoy.
If you haven’t seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog, visit you should. It’s a lot of fun. It was made by Joss Whedon and Company during the writers’ strike (dumbest strike ever). It was nice to see that some people in Hollywood were committed to giving us something new during what I like to refer to as “The Great Pretentious Douchebag Hissy-Fit Of 2007.”
I have lived in Nashville, pills Tennessee for most of my life and while it’s not my favorite place in the world, discount it is most certainly my home. This weekend, there the city of Nashville fell victim to some real “Wrath Of God” type stuff. The whole effin’ city flooded. And not just a little flooding either. Nope. The Cumberland river at Riverfront Park was up 50 FEET. All of 1st Avenue was submerged. I had a river running down my driveway (taking every bit of the gravel with it) and a lake where my front yard once was. It almost seemed like it wasn’t going to stop. For me, luckily, the waters stopped rising before making it inside my home. Not everyone in town was so lucky.
It’s surreal to see all this stuff as it’s happening, to receive phone calls from friends describing the utter devastation going on all around them and turning on the TV to find… NOTHING. Aside from local news outlets doing what they can to keep everyone locally informed, there was absolutelynothing on TV about it at all. There was simply NO national coverage. Unless you lived here there was no way for anyone to know. I scoured the computernet looking for any mention of what was happening and all I found was news about the oil spill, the NY car bombing failure and some stupid teenage schmuck getting shot by a taser at a baseball game. I can understand the oil spill and the car bombing attempt taking up a good part of the news cycle, but the taser schmuck? I don’t see how that is somehow more newsworthy than a metropolitan city sinking in a flood.
Keith Olberman finally said something as did John Stewart. Is that not something we should worry about? Listen, I love both Stewart and Olberman and have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for what they do but I think it’s a little messed up that the “court jesters” of the news are the first ones to draw national attention to a natural disaster. CNN, you’ve failed us. You guys really dropped the ball on this one.
I’m not mad, I’m just really disappointed.
Here‘s another Nashvillian’s take on the situation that I feel is worth reading.
