The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!

by bobadventures
Bob Smithson was the world's most average man... until the day he became a Weirdness Magnet. Now, spaceships crash into his roof, unicorns nibble his lawn, or world-destroying bombs get left on his doorstep every day. He's handling it surprisingly well, with a combination of kindness, common sense, and being too dense to be as scared as he should be.

Thank you all for the feedback! And for your patience. Hopefully the revision won't take too awfully much longer.

I actually have the next strip inked and lettered, I just need to get it scanned, cleaned up, and composited. Been working a heavy schedule at the dayjob, till yesterday when a bug hit me like a ton of bricks; I'm trying to shake it as quickly ass possible because I've got an important trip coming next week.

And TOTBC, Jansen says hi!
Well, at least he's not saying, "Yes, I see" a lot...

Updates also work better if you bookmark the correct URL, so you don't get the same comic date every time! I've just corrected that, thanks for the recent updates, Jim.

hey, wonky is a lot better than no update at all

I like the changes so far. Not perfect, obviously, but you did say that. Comic's looking good. 80% viewport width, I'm guessing? (Of course, I could just hit the inspector if I really wanted.)

Please pardon the webpage for still looking wonky. It is undergoing renovations as we speak.
Well, Brian, you're on the right track!...
looks like...

As you can see (assuming you're viewing this shortly after I've posted it), the comic's webpage is currently undergoing reconstruction even as we speak! So exciting! I've wanted to revamp the look of the comic's page forever, so I'm really looking forward to the finished version of this!

@Formedras: Sorry about that, Formedras. Again, thank you for the feedback about the sizing, and I will pass that along.

I always wondered what a comment section would be like. Um... Yeah, I'll try not to get people's names wrong again! Sorry! Sorry to you too, Aristidus Twain!

So, this strip had of course already appeared on the wix.com backup site ( https://jimcleave.wixsite.com/bobadventures2 ), but it is the next one in order so it makes sense to put it here. Frazzowtch!

@Too Old To Be Cool: Oh I shall! Always glad to hear from you, sir!
Missing one
You need to add in "Frazzowtch". We need all the comicky goodness we can get!

@bobadventures: Uhh... that was me (Formedras), not Twain, that talked about the resizing. And I was positioning it as a good thing, like when I e-mailed you about the possibility a few months ago (but failed to look up the necessary CSS for it).
I'd recommend, for your purposes, to set it to 95% of viewport width by default, and then have a single-click change it to full-size. (And then add in Left/Right arrows for basic navigation.)

Howdy folks! Yes, I'm quite excited about the comment boxes!

Not so much about the shrinkage. I think I can fix that. My friend Meredith has promised to help me redesign this page, and I said I would get my list of what I wanted off to her before the end of this week. So, soon hopefully.

Or... Aristidus Twain, were you talking about shrinking it to fit your screen as a good thing, as in smart phone compatibility? In that case, I want to keep that! Sigh, web design has never been my strong suit... Suffice it that on my wide-screen desktop computer, it's showing up kinda shrunken right now.
Ooh! So now we can leave actual comments! Neat!

Oh hi there. And yay, SmackJeeves shrinks the comic to fit for you!
