Not Cool
Make a device hot enough to generate visible clouds of steam.
Strap it to your wrist.
@sparkplug54 I don't know if you'll see this or not, but I figured I'd try and get back to you. The reason I stopped this comic was due to a few things. I lost interest because I already knew what all was going to happen. No surprises. I'm super critical of my art, so everytime I improve I feel like I need to redo all the previous pages, which isn't possible, so I just don't make any new pages. And lastly I can't really afford it. It's really time consumming and I'm poor as it is, so my time has to go to freelance work instead. I'm still interested in comics. My work has improved a lot since FSA, and I might be starting a kick started to fund a new project at some point. I'll keep Smack Jeeves updated. :)
Any possibility of getting this comic back up and running? It was cool while it lasted, but disappeared before it really had a chance to finish the plot. I wish you well.

It's been four and a half months since we've seen anything here. Are you OK, Have you lost your muse. FSA was a very promising comic, hope you can get going again soon.

New Website is Up!
Hey guys, The new website is up!.

Check it out at:

There’s obviously still a lot of work to be done. Hahaha, but I’m getting there. Sorry again about the couple week hiatus, my dad had a serious health issue that called me away from work and commissions. He’s doing much better now, so things should be back on schedule.

Import News: There will be another new page uploaded (only on the website) tomorrow, so come check it out later to see it. From then on out, that website will always be one page ahead of smack Jeeves, drunk duck, and deviant art.

Music I listened to while drawing this page: ‘Back in Black’ by AC/DC

Once again, the new website is

Yes maps maps maps :D
And tutorials would be awesome :D I've never really encountered anyone with a colouring style like yours~
Heh. Love the expressions in this page. You're fantastic at conveying their emotions!!

What you listed under #1 is probably what I most want to see. I'd love to know more about the characters and the world they live in!
I definitely agree about the fan works section as well, and the podcast and "making of the comic" ideas sound neat.
It might be nice to have a mini "about me" section where you share a bit about yourself. You could also have a link/place for non-comic related artwork of yours, as that'd be great to see too!

4. Podcast sounds sweet.

And just a piece of friendly advice, try to remove the dialogue from Panel 5 and see if it works. I think the expression on Klaus's face conveys the message enough without having the words there, but that's just me.

And damn, I have trouble believing that Klaus is a virgin.

We stay loyal to you because you made a wonderful comic. A quality product leads to loyalty from your readers, and major props for not resorting to gimmicks to gain readers.
January 17th, 2011
Well I guess virgin and virtually perfect are the same a roundabout way. And all of your proposed suggestions sound good to me.
January 16th, 2011
Sorry this is a little late, hahaha. I forgot how much more work it is to color this many panels/people. Hahaha. But it's only a little late, I'm not abandoning you again, I promise. haha.

Okay, now I have a question for you guys:

What features would you like the website to have? Here is what I'm thinking so far...

1) Background information on the characters and the world along with special art and maps and whatnot

2) Some info on how the comic is made, and some tutorials for anyone interested

3) Fan Art and Fan Writing and anything of that nature

4) Maybe a podcast section where I can talk a bit about the comic and where it's going and answer any questions

5) Obviously the comic. hahaha.

So, is there anything else you would like to see? I really appreciate the feedback.


BobBob: thanks! Now if I could just improve on my hated of drawing backgrounds, we'll be set. haha.

Jazeki: And they still didn't do anything about it. Hahaha.

Flo: Thanks so much for commenting and showing your support! It keeps surprising me how loyal and awesome you guys are. haha.

Ninja Kitties: Hahaha yeah, that would end the comic pretty quickly. Luckily, it was just the storage area or something. haha.

Lady Terentia: I'm so excited to show who's attacking them. ahahaha it's a character that I keep forgetting to show you guys a sneak peek of. I guess it'll be a surprise? Hahaha.

LokiDove: Thanks so for the support Loki! I didn't make a new style on purpose, it's just sort of the direct my art took over the past year. Hopefully it's not too different, just less flat?
