Well, my internet connection is finally back up and I’m just under the wire for a Thursday comic deadline, too. It’s nice that my luck finally did me a solid – instead of the other way around (solid me a did? That’s not right…) I’m not going to get into it, because as much of a sad-sack as I’ve been lately, it’s not as comedic as you’d think. Not like my usual tripping and head-hitting-into-things kind of sad-sackery at all.
Let’s just say it’s been a craptastical week or two.
Thankfully, the Nintendo corporation was kind enough to release Super Mario Galaxy 2 just as the proverbial poo hit the metaphorical fan. I’ll go into more detail about the game soon (I’ve been doing some Mario doodlin’ to help keep my head straight. You’d be surprised how relaxing it can be to draw something you have no personal investment in.) but suffice it to say that without the sweet candy glow of a new Mario game coupled with some brutally rewarding gameplay, I’d be a damn sight less put together right now. Also, alcohol. Alcohol is also a particularly effective balm. Not a healthy one, mind you – but effective, yes.
Sad sack dead cat blah blah BLAH. Moving on, because who really cares about all that junk – we’re nearly at the one year mark for this iteration of Billy and Co., which will rather happily coincide with the end of this storyline. After that, look for bigger and better things – namely, I think I’m going to expand the strip a bit. Since I’m going to a once a week update structure, I’m going to try and implement a third tier – expanding the potential for slightly larger stories every week. I only wish the internet was better suited to a wider format, like quarter page Sunday strips. I love how those things look.
What do you guys think? I’ll certainly enjoy being able to get a bit more out of each strip.
