Goddamnit, you guys made me play Minecraft again this weekend... buffer's looking a little bit like that 'splosion.

Edit: Dammit, page requires repairs.

Editx2: OK, significant repairs completed. Thanks, Jamie59 for pointing out a significant error. I appreciate audience interaction of all sorts, but I *really* appreciate constructive criticism of the "d'oh" category.

Eric is in really, really, big, big trouble! :-o

I like how you snuck that moon in there.

Thank god for the airbrush tool; it's the only way to keep you people satisfied with fire, smoke, explosions, and the like. Assuming I can avoid dropping dead of exhaustion, Wednesday's strip will feature a bit more of all that good stuff.

And yeah, big empty field of blue = boring.

Nobody MADE you do ANYthing, Lir - you did it all to yourself... Now - get that mask back over your head and zip it up!

Here's hoping he gets two bullets, one through each of his douchey sunglass lenses

You wouldn't be alone in your strong feelings regarding Eric... if you haven't seen my 30 days of characters pages, that's where the line to take a shot at him starts.

You're absolutely correct, and when I go in (to correct a layer that somehow didn't make the final cut) I'll do a little more to convey the grinding nastiness of that interaction.

On a re-read months later, I tip my hat to you sir... the sound effects' comedic value alone is astounding!

This is something followed by:
...
...
...oops.

Sorry Eric but those who stay in the background carefully plotting and manipulating events like here are usually called terrorists with higher priority than those who perform for them.
It is always the band manager who gets the most out of other's talents.

To be covered in a few pages.

And I just want to say publicly to anyone who's reading this that Wednesday's page is shaping up to be fucking spectacular.

At some point when I'm not totally overwhelmed with IRL stuff I might turn this into a discussion thread on explosions.

I've been neglecting your comic (and my own... and comicfury in general, lol!), but I see I've been missing out - this page is spectacular!

My Canadian comrade, I beseech you to wait two hours and seven minutes and check back here... I don't think you'll be disappointed.
