Hey folks – how about that, it’s three years since this comic went live on the ol’ innernets. Big thanks to you all for reading, commenting, emailing, correcting spelling mistakes etc. Feedback is great – keep it comin’! Thanks also for your patience over the last while, I know the site’s been updating on average every other week in 2011, but I still love making these comics and there’s always something new in the works, even if it’s not hitting the site as regularly.
In time honoured tradition here’s a little rundown of the five most popular comics on the site from the past year!
5. Hip to be Square
Hipsters eh? Braces, pomade and pencil moustaches, loved and loathed in equal measure. More power to ‘em says I.
4. A Remarkable Sunset
The most recent entry in the list. Another one of those strips that I was unsure about right up to posting that ended up being way more popular than I imagined. Must be the keytar.
3. Cat’s Outta the Bag
Cats! The innernet loves cats, so this one did well depsite being more text than drawing.
2. Mr. Elf’s Bad Day
Glad to see this one doing so well, as it’s one of my own favourites. Nice and simple, it still contains some of my favourite panels I’ve drawn. Poor old Mr. Elf, he just can’t get a break.
1. Bongo Bongo Bongo
A surprise entry at number one – an old strip about the video game ‘Fallout’, which is a post-apocalyptic RPG. This one was rediscovered by Reddit around the time of the release of Fallout: New Vegas’ and has been linked around the place ever since. I am particularly proud of the last V.A.T.S panel, and still hear the sound effect every time I look at it
Conclusions: The key to webcomics success seems to be pop-culture references, video games and cats. Who knew! Expect nothing but this, relentlessly and forever more (not really).
Thanks for clickin’.
