PECULIAR COMICS #29, copyright 2009 by ED

THIS IS WHERE I KINDA SORTA change the point of Peculiar Comics. I wrote this one a while back, while I was in my “Death: Myth and Reality” class with two specific limits in mind: it had to explore different understandings of death, and it had to be (mostly) wordless. I decided the easiest way to do this was with either robots or cavemen…so I went with both.

Like I mentioned before, this is where things change a bit. Peculiar Comics will still feature some of the characters I’ve used so far, but I’m shifting focus to personal experimentation with the medium. Things to look forward to coming up:

  • Slice of life stories in a superhero world (and a return to Jupter City)!
  • Golden Age-style space stories!
  • Changes in panel layout!

Stay tuned, cadets! Your starship captain commands it!

MURDER FOR THE GREATER GOOD?! Say WHAT?!

…I’ve got nothing else related to the comic. Except for this, a college memory featuring Rich, one of the poor bastards trapped by the Lovecraftian horror house I dwelt in by myself and my roommates.

I STARTED THIS BAD BOY by stealing the plot of the first “Starman” issue, and now I’m stealing Final Crisis.

Don’t worry. It’ll all work out.

Promise.

AAAANNNND we’re back after a hiatus. Or a delay. Or whatever you want to call it. At least it’s not like Joss Whedon’s “Runaways” run! O SNAP!

But seriously. I had some stuff to take care of. It’s not all taken care of, but for the most part, I should be able to do a weekly strip (and it will maintain it’s weekly status until…some things get taken care of and I’ll be able to organize my time better). If you want to pretend that my excuse for the hiatus involves something like voyages to the deep jungles to steal from lost civilizations, you are free to do so.

Enjoy. Tell your friends. Keep coming back. Because I’m a sad, sad bastard and need attention from strangers on the Internets.
