My wife gave me a pair of Heely Shoes for Christmas. They're pretty awesome for my 3 miles of foot travel every day. Took about three weeks to adjust to the lack of traction on the heel, which of course lead to me 'injuring myself in the most predictable manner possible' as Matt put it.

The results of my reminder, that sidewalks are very hard, was that my left arm was pretty much immobile from swelling for about two weeks. Plenty of time to learn to skate slower.

Side note; No, the woman didn't stop to help me. I rather doubt she realized my fall was because I firmly planted my wheeled shoe in a trench in the concrete, locking my leg in place, then pushing off with the other leg, expecting to glide smoothly forward. Instead, I'm pretty sure I looked like a crazy guy rolling on the ground, holding my arm, and laughing at myself for my humiliating fall from Heely grace.

Anyway, comics are pretty touch and go this month as you've probably noticed. Matt, Dom, Jes and I are all in the middle of a pretty epic move to a new house along with various work deadlines that I'm damned determined to meet, if that's excuse enough.

Because of this, we've disappointingly had to withdraw from our appearance this weekend at Setsucon. We've never canceled from a con before, so this decision did not come easy. Our apologies to the visitors and staff.

Completely unrelated, but why didn't anyone tell me how twisted and awesome Baroque is? Sure, the animation is quite rigid and lifeless, but dang was it a good story. I also loved the sound track. Also, there sure is a lot of voices recognizable from the old toonami block... Which, is a weird perk. Any time I hear Elizabeth Mcglynn's voice, things just tend to be more awesome.

Not really a comic, just me sitting and looking back. I'll make something gift related for you guys later this week. Still thinking of what to draw really.

But yep, Sunday was Jes and I's first anniversary. I've never had one of these before, so I'm not to clear on how they're supposed to go, but I'm pretty sure most stories I hear don't include laying on the couch watching Street Fighter. It's been a good day.

(For the curious about the proposal game, here's the old screen shots I posted a year.5 ago.1 2 3)

Side note: I'm pretty sure these are the best use Legos ever. I must build some of my own. I must.

Also: Daybreakers looks like it could be pretty neat'o. Maybe if only for its use of Placebo.

You know what's awesome? This.

You know what else is awesome? This. At least by 2011 I should have a computer capable of running that game. But I can tell you already what race I'll play... Come on! Tiny, cute, and have Mechs as BFF.

EDIT: This seems like it could be pretty awesome too. At least the art style is already awesome.

Reactivated my account for this month and have been leveling Edge Mouse some more. My connection hasn't been stable enough for me to help my guild run Arthas, so Wow's kinda on the back burner. So I thought I'd run around grinding on villains with my cliche cat-girl. Even bought some costume slots to further prove I care too much about avatar appearance. (Hey, I gotta support micro-transactions. They're my bread and butter.)

I'm been pretty damn sick the last two weeks, and as the guy who draws the comics, you can imagine this will delay updates. I'll see if I can get some doodles posted or something for your visual amusement.

I had to give Big Up Magazine kind of a qualified, wishy-washy recommendation because I hadn't yet seen the physical product. It knew it was almost certainly good, but I couldn't risk misleading you in good conscience. You are my bros! Even those readers who are women.

However! I have since held the magazine in my hands and can give it a hearty thumbs up.

I said last time I really liked the art, and that's still true. The interviews with the artists are equally as good.

The print quality makes it pop, too. As someone who's priced some printing over the years, I was impressed. It's a nice, perfect-bound, glossy color print run. Four issues for $25 with shipping, and an included CD, is a damn good deal.

In fact, I like it enough to get a subscription as a gift for one of the people on my list.

Props to Daisy, a far more expressive cartoonist than I.

...I'm a bad person. I can't even blame the wrongness of this comic on George, either. He's too busy being awesome to corrupt me. Every time I laugh at another stupid internet image or chortle at some schadenfreude, a voice in my head questions what's left of my humanity. Reguardless, I'm sure this comic is bound to make my parents proud. U_U...

Unrelated; I'm very very behind on my inbox. I ask both for your patience and forgiveness.

Looking at the comic on my work monitor does confirm the comic to be too dark. I'll fix that when I get off work tonight. All fixed!

Side note: I'm in S-Words again! Want to hear my irritating voice and fail to add anything meaningful to the conversation? Then check out these podcasts!

And remember, you can find Dom and his friends shooting the shit weekly on S-Words, so make sure to check them out on iTunes.

My normal laptop is out of commission for a little bit so I did this comic on Jes's computer. Though, I don't know if her monitor is calibrated correctly as I now worry the comic is much darker than I intended it. Well, even so, it looks pretty good on the monitor in front of me now.

It's just a little Warcraft joke, but I hope that even if you don't play you can find Calabim cute enough to make up for the joke.
