Devil, Details and Life

For those of you who care about such things (hello, Roy) I have posted the background of the post-apocalyptic Epsilon Beta Schlumpy for you to see:

It has a Seussian quality that I find not unpleasant. Also, I'd like to occasionally show you the kind of detail that - all things being equal - I'd rather not do BUT feel compelled to provide.

Those tiny voices...

Damn them. Damn them to hell!

Solar Units

Yes, yes, yes...

Technically only our star is Sol. So the Bleen Navy would still likely use the term AU (astronomical units) but derive the short side of the triangle from the relationship between Bleen and their sun. Yet, an AU has become such an Earth-Centric term that - although potentially generic - it sounds specific to our sun and our orbit (and the distance from both whereby the Earth and Sol appear to be one degree of arc apart).

edit: It has been pointed out that I have confused an AU - the distance of Earth from Sol and a Parsec - the triangulation of Earth and Sun to one degree of arc. I'm blaming it on fatigue.

So where was i?

Oh, yeah. So by Solar Unit I mean a (Whatever the Bleen call their sun)-ar unit...translated from Bleen into English.

Good enough?

So now you know what keeps me awake at night...and why I have no friends.

I sleep now.

Well...Now I see how it is...

I would have thought that the new perspective of the bridge would have elicited Oooo's and Aaah's.

But no.

I am taken for granted.

See if I bother showing you what is really on Carl's screen now...

Unexpected Work - Late Bonus Update

...BUT still all caught up by tonight.

I've had taxes, a birthday, a long-format video for the Jefferson County and a commercial shoot with a football celebrity (who never appeared). Yet I still manage to get you one more strip.

Again, I invoke my pledge: I shall produce a strip for each and every Monday Wednesday and Friday until either the day I die or the very last sun is extinguished from the heavens.

And I wouldn't place any bets on which will happen first if I were you...

So more Vexxarr for you today. Less sleep for me tonight. And I'll be anxiously awaiting all those T-Shirt sales which help to keep my i.v. filled and my respirator pumping. But don't feel guilty...

Still One Comic Behind

But I did TECHNICALLY update three times this week...


You get Friday's and Monday's on Monday - how lucky for you! And I noticed a marked SPIKE in my readership this week. From whence do you come?

I always enjoy hearing where readers found my humble strip.

Amuse me...

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, Hunter the cartoonist, the filmmaker, the (fake) castle builder and the Mac Parody Guy has turned 41.

It started with a dull ache in the back of my head and progressed to a burning sensation engulfing my entire body. Soon my flesh began to disintegrate into dust and my bones suddenly exploded like dry plaster in a kiln. In the end, the small pile of my granular remains sat like chalk dust awaiting the sunrise. And just as the first amber fingers of the new day touched my dessicated form, it gently took flight upon the morning breeze...

Late Late Late

OK, the trifecta of tardiness...

I have a huge project which refuses to die, it's my birthday and the IRS wants a fraction of the money which I did not make.

So, Vexxarr marches on but seems to be a day out of sync. Those of you who know me know I will make things right - and by right , I mean three comics a week.

Those of you who don't know me, will assume the worst - and on a purely philosophical level you will be correct. But not about the comics.

So Take today's offering for yesterday and I promise today's tomorrow after today's is done yesterday.

I'm going to sleep now.

April Fools!

But you already knew this, didn't you?

Just a little fun and wishful thinking on my part. New comic tomorrow. Maybe even a funny one!
