330 Through The Fire & The Flames.
I don’t know why, but Photoshop suddenly stopped being able to render my text properly. I’ve fiddled with it, but nothing has helped. It’s not that big a deal. I just have to simplify each text layer before I resize now, but I didn’t have to before. Whenever something like that changes I get worried that something is deeply wrong with my PC that I haven’t discovered yet. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Oh, and before I forget, thanks to everyone who emailed me. I had a good time answering your messages, and getting to know some of you a little better. I’ll try to make sure that it doesn’t take months to get an answer in the future. As far as I can tell the mail system is working properly again.
Also, the Magic Web Fairie is trying out new advertising options, so stuff might be moving around. Nothing can go exactly where I want it because Comicpress is kind of a bitch. We’ll be playing with it as time goes by. Join me on the adventure, won’t you?
… Do I have to pay to join the adventure? I’m all for free adventure, but—— – screw what I was going to say. I forgot it when I remembered this— If you are planning to go to the Tulsa comicon (which you probably aren’t) you must visit me at my booth!!! I have no idea what part of the country you live in, but I have heard you mention the midwest before… though that may have been where you used to live and I deduce it only by the absence of Hastings stores in other parts of the country. They seem to be a midwestern phenomenon. Much like tornadoes.
And also, did you enjoy the link I sent you? *player 1 attempted bad command “wink wink nudge nudge”. Action denied. Error 44. Call for support….* what?….
I am tired.
That’s chump work… Yeah, kinda the point, jackass.
A dick weed and incompetent, what a winning combo.
Hey Manekochan when is the Tulsa Comic Con, That’s where I’m from I’d love to go back and pay a visit.
Hmmm, I’m still pretty average at photoshop so this is impressive to me.
…it caught fire? :o
The infamous story does get told by Brooksie. Turns out there is a lot more to it than “fire,” but yeah, it is not a pleasant story nonetheless.
Haha, thats pretty funny. Its very satisfying that Reggie also sucks horribly at his job for some strange reason.

Defcon 7 runs August 1-3 in Tulsa. http://www.tulsadefcon.com/
For your Comic Convention needs, try http://www.comicbookconventions.com. You’ll be glad you did!
Hmm I’m not sure why my computer posted me a Chris Ham instead of C-Ham.
Now you all know my true identity so I’m afraid I must destroy you.
Thanks for the tip brad I’ll check it out.
Fire being a Structural defect depends on who you ask. Oh look! Reggie made a funny!
I don’t know why I expected Reggie to be good at his job. I guess I just thought the reason everyone ignored his bad attitude was because he was a hard worker. Now that’s out the window.
Dammit, I did it again! Why do I keep forgetting to leave my name? (The above comment was mine)
It caught fire?! How on earth…Wait, maybe it’s best not to know
man, Reggie can’t have an attitude and suck at your job.
… Dragonforce. I read this as much for the spiffy comments as the comic itself. Keep rocking.
Best Band Ever, also that is my favorite song from them.
Gah! Another song I won’t be able to get out of my head!
I’m liking Reggie more now.
Oh, there was failure involved. It just wasn’t the structure’s…
I may have had bad days, but I was never that bad.
I feel like a lonely traveler painting markers onto the rocks as signposts for future wanderers. I wonder how long it will be until someone responds to anything I post? Seems like everyone else is caught up.
In that case…..badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger etc.
In the darkness I keep watch over all that is…
Hah! The Creator! Greetings, weary sentinel. I take this opportunity to say I am enjoying this story very much. Sleep beckons, but I slap him with a gigantic fish, as Monty Python taught.
You sound like something from H.P. Lovecraft – probably because I just got the Arkham Horror board game for my B-day so I keep seeing parallels everywhere – that and people with “the Innsmouth Look”…
Interesting you should say that. I have a hand-knitted tiny Lord Cthulhu who threatens to devour the sanity of those foolish enough to ignore him. I also had an MMO character named Nyarlathotep. I’m very much into Lovecraft.
I had no idea how to approach this before-now I’m locked and loaded.
Looking back on this page after learning about their mutual back story, Jo is kind of a dick right here. The Burning of the Display was as much her fault as it was his.
Re-reading these again, mostly because I’m bored at work, but also because it’s a great story and it’s been a while so I need a refresher, I gotta admire once again the character development. When I first met Reggie, I never thought I’d start liking him a little. And yes, the burning display was partly Jo’s fault
