So a friend of mine gives me an old scanner on Saturday, which was a rather busy Saturday for me. Sunday I could work on a comic, but I also had a Clutter Report and other things to do. Plus, the “emergency comic” strip I drew seems lamer and lamer the more I think about it. The art is…meh…but it’s the gag that sucks. I hope to start getting a schedule going (unless they change my work hours again) but I also have a new camera on the way that I have to mess with before ComiCONN in a couple weeks and I’m starting to either fight a cold or deal with allergies. Plus some of my blip embeds aren’t working and I don’t know why, but it includes most of my own videos. So yeah, not a good weekend for a comic. Already started the next one, so next week Jake & Leon returns…with something topical outside of entertainment. Go figure.

In the meantime, let’s clear out some more of my e-newsletters from the e-mail box.



video games

  • I’m not sure this qualifies as a “video game”, but it is an interesting experiment in interactive storytelling. Work this into a digital comics form and BW Virtual Mentor Jerzy will be thrilled.
  • Outrage against the London riots leads to a video game.
  • This kid was so wrapped up in his video game he might have gotten hit by a train.
  • Nintendo created the Wii U in part because of all the complaints by “hardcore gamers” that the new system isn’t HD like the PS3. Do you know what still sells like crazy? The Playstation 2. Next gen graphics my #$#.
  • I never played the Zork computer games, but I did have a “choose your path” type book set in the world. However, I thought all the games were text based. Turns out at least one wasn’t.

in other news

  • This is just too cute, a little kid asking the Flash to help find his daddy.
  • You know how in Space Ghost or Silverhawks everyone can breathe in space despite the lack of oxygen? Well, maybe there is some oxygen. (Yes, I know our atmosphere has more than oxygen but I’m hard up for a synopsis here.)
  • Someone found J’onn J’onns’ swimming pool.
  • The Clutter Reports: While I only picked up Donatello from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toyline, I have all four Turtles from the relaunch. Are they any good?
  • I didn’t have time to check into this week, but that will be back next week as well.

Kirby: Genesis #2

So once I figure out how to work with this new scanner, we should be back on track. There should be a new comic next week.
