I'm going through one of those thingies right now.

The ones where everything I think of is shit. This is no exception but the faces are funny.
So obviously this was made with a laptop mouse in MS Paint because, PS, I'm already in France.
It's only been, what, six months?

Also I'd just like to throw out there that this page has more important characters than any page I've made so far. There are:

1. Me
2. The scientist
3. Fred
4. Joe

Incidentally, Fred also represents the most character development I've ever put into one page on this site.

So of course I had to kill him.
This is so meta.
K so remember that last comic I was going to send in with my university applications? It was brought to my attention that is was very negative, and doesn't really leave the best impression of me to someone who's never met me. Of course, neither does this, but at least it's not four me's fighting with each other for stupid reason, and flaunts my scholarly cred.

Trying to make this comic look clean and sexy on the tablet was a difficult and uncomfortable process. This looks much nicer on the whole and I'm happy with it, but some of the best images have been lost in translation.
Christmas?! Who does that! I'm applying to University (also I'm Jewish).

Tufts University had a very cool prompt for one of the topics for the optional essay portion of their application. I made this comic for them, but also think it's pretty good, so I decided to posted it here. Enjoy!
Zak, I've kinda done away with the scanner of late. All the Sexy Robo strips have been done from scratch on the tablet.
No like they're funny but they just look so bad. I might redraw them at some point.
I hate the last two panels. So much. They totally ruined this comic for me.
This looks good. I am happy with the way it looks.

Also, hi again.
MY SCANNER IS SUCH SHIT

Also, I had significantly less fun with this page than the first.
THIS COMIC IS NOT FUNNY. THERE IS NO JOKE HERE. SORRY I'VE ONLY GOT SO MUCH COMIC GENIUS.

This is sort of an attempt to get rid of some serious writer's block/artistic anxieties I've been having lately. I'm basically just going to try to put out as many of these as frequently as possible. I don't have any idea where I'm planning to go with it, but I'll try to avoid any more cliches than the ones I've already set up.

Now onto the light, witty part: My sunset looks like a nightmarish hell acid trip gone the wrongest and that's not the first time this has happened. The reason for the inconsistency of the text in the fist panel is because I'm just sort of going and not giving the whole process much thought - experimenting, etc. So basically I'm treating you to my scraps. Enjoy.
I made sure people would be able to get this one. Ish.

My scanner is so bad. This scanned horribly but I couldn't get it looking right, so I just went with this.
JUST REMINDING YOU ALL THAT THE VIEWS EXPRESSED IN MY COMICS ARE NOT NECESSARILY MY OWN.

Also, oh god my first dick joke :'(
And we're back.

I've retconned the Captain until I can make something satisfying out of him. I was not feeling good about that first strip.
I DUNNO IT'S ABOUT SOME FUCKING HIPSTER I KNOW

THINKS HE'S ALL COOL OR SOMETHING
I'm so indescribably happy with how this came out. Like it doesn't even make sense.
There will, in all likelihood, never be a Socrates Comics Episode 2, especially as this may only be funny to those who have read Plato, which makes me an elitist prick. I tried hard to make this funny for those who didn't get the reference.

It's worth mentioning that this comic is very much inspired by the works of the extremely talented Kate Beaton, writer/artist of Hark! A Vagrant! (See below for link) You should give her all your love.

Sorry for not updating on time. I update when I have time to. Which is never.

Fuck my work.

Hark! A Vagrant!
