It’s a JOKE!
I know. I know. It’s been a while since we last visited the universe of “IN SPACE”. For those that have completely forgotten, here is where you can find IN SPACE, PART ONE. This whole things started as a short story I wrote years (YEARS and YEARS) ago and has blossomed into a rather long anthology.
All I can say is that by the time it’s over you’ll meet many different characters, go on a plethora of amazing adventures and, more than likely, have your life completely changed. Not that I’m bragging.
Let me know what ya’ll think either here or on Facebook or Twitter. Thanks, friends.
Hey, Sheeple! My insatiable charm drew Lorenzo from the PALS Podcast into my general vacinity during the Comikaze Expo. That and our shared love of Billy the Kid sealed the deal and I was the subject of Lorenzo and PALS first live interview.
And yes, he does keep on calling me Rick. Skip to the 22:13 mark for the George-filled goodness.
For the uninitiated, PALS is a podcast dealing with all levels of fanboy nature. They do a pretty good job on entertaining over there and I gotta thanks Lorenzo for the kind words. Also, the guy can REALLY throw together a fan-fucking-tastic steam punk look.
If you want to be cool like me and Lorenzo, you’ll have to know what movie(s) the simple word “Pals” is a reference to. Get back to me with that….
In the meantime you can listen to a lot more of Lorenzo and the rest of the boys at PALS on their WEBSITE.
Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie is coming out on March 2nd. And though I don’t usually have much of an issue with downloading a movie or television show under the auspices of “I want it”, this is a rare case in which I fully intend to support the artist.
For the uninitiated, I would compare the understanding that Tim & Eric have of comedy to greats like The State, The Kids in the Hall, Mitchell & Webb, and perhaps even as far as Monty Python. Yeah, that’s right. I said it. These guys understand comedy and how it works better than anyone that is a staff writer on WHITNEY or THE NEW GIRL. Go see TIM AND ERIC’S BILLION DOLLAR MOVIE! Or, if you wanna go even further, sign the pledge!
When the Nintendo Wii first came out, I fuckin’ loved it. But once developers that didn’t rhyme with Wintendo started to run for the hills of X-Box and Playstation, the lack of games that took advantage of the motion controls really started to suffer. C’est la vie, right? It’s too bad. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Nintendo is NOT going anywhere. They’re a more than 100 year old company that video game analysts have been predicting the extinction of for more than 15 years. They’ll be just fine. The Wii is just an example of what happens when game developers play it safe and decide not to whole-heartedly support an innovative technology.
Long story short. I had a dream the other night that I was flying through outer space. What amazed me most about the dream was my feeling of complete dissatisfaction upon waking up. Something about effortlessly navigating through the stars felt right, and the rude realization that it was only a sleep-induced hallucination was profoundly disappointing. Ah well. Maybe someday.

This strip is an unpublished remnant of my previous attempt at a webcomic. Let’s hope that I am not one day publishing something meant for here at a newly registered URL with the hopes of raising some sense of fake nostalgia.
For the uninitiated: Man Thing was created by Gerry Conway as an elemental creature created during a lab accident gone awry for Marvel Comics. Swamp Thing was created a month later by Conway’s roommate at the time Len Wein…uhm…as an elemental creature created during a lab accident for DC Comics.
Now, apparently Marvel Comics never sought any type of litigation because both publisher’s fully realized that the characters both bore startling similarities to The Heap, who was created in December of 1942 by Mort Leav…yeah…as an elemental creature created during a lab accident.
My intention with this is pretty much just to demonstrate how few original ideas truly exist nowadays. Every dramatic tale was probably originally told better by Shakespeare and you can pretty much always yell “Simpsons’ did it!”
SUPER-SPECIAL NOTE: This comic was colored by my good friend OBot. Freeing me up to finish LA Noire in a record 3 days. Go, procrastination!
