No other updates today, finishing final research paper and cleaning my dorm in prep for graduation.
I have been away, I know I’ve failed (epically) on updating here, but I’ve had some ridiculously busy times in real life (I haven’t even read the last four weeks of comics). However, I am back, and will return to the normal updating schedule. Going to throw some links your way today. The title of this post comes from a webcomic of the same name, which I have been meaning to talk about for a while. A Simple Apology, written and illustrated by Mark Gleim, may not appeal to the kind of people that absolutely can not stand Family Guy, however, it’s not quite the same brand of humor, this is much more lighthearted and unoffensive. Given this, it loses the offensive and ‘on the edge’ quality that some people appreciate and look for in Seth Macfarlane, but it has a lighthearted, almost youthful quality all of its own, that many have attempted, but few have rarely achieved.
The next link I’m throwing out there, is a fairly random, and slightly older one, old for a website based on weekly comic released anyway. This is a Penny-Arcade link, to a comic about the Tiger Woods videogame released over the summer. I just can’t look at the last panel and not laugh. Hope you all enjoy them, and have a good day.
Just a quick reminder to everyone, no comics are shipping to purchase tomorrow, for the next two weeks Friday is comic book day. And with that out of the way, GO SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY? What are you doing on the internet???
Happy Christmas Everyone (Merry Christmas to all my American friends), I hope today brings you much joy, regardless of faith.
Today’s post, while probably acceptable to all viewers (no nudity, drugs, or violence) maybe offensive to some people with more conservative social standards. It does imply drinking and premarital sex through an alternative means… well, you really have to see it to understand it, I just don’t want angry emails coming to me or WordPress this early. Today’s comic comes from the Clio Awards, of all places. These are from the Clio festival, for advertising and design, and I’m going to be honest with you here I have no idea what these have to do with anything, but they’re fairly humorous, so I thought I would share them. There are nine in all, they all tend to revolve around a single theme, but I find them all very funny, especially number 4 and 5. Please let me know what you think of them, and of this alternative comic in general.
I was considering doing my next comic review on something a little more mainstream, probably not something from Messiah Complex (Marvel) or the Resurrection of Ra’s (DC), because those reviews are fairly commonplace at this time. Not to say I will forgo talking about them at all, but just not at this moment. I am also working on getting an interview with a smaller webcomic writer/artist to talk about what it’s like competing for readership in today’s internet, so be on the lookout for that in the next few weeks, and I’ll let you know how it’s panning out.
