Episode 6: The Godgnome

Ah yes, amidst the hell my professors like to refer to as "Final Week", which apparently encompasses not just the week of finals but the last week of classes leading up to it as well, I have produced a new comic. Yeah, last week was a sleep deprived 3D modeling hell for me. Luckily, doing this comic cheers me up and is my way of blowing off some steam. But enough of my angsty rambling.

This is a concept my brother, Donkers (in real life), came up with a while back when we thought, "Wouldn't it be awesome to have a gnome be the biggest crime boss in Azeroth?" Then we thought, "What if that gnome was Donkers?" And then we thought, "But yeah, Donkers shouldn't get his hands dirty with the grunt work. He needs some hired hands...but what creature is a fitting thug for a crime lord of Azeroth?" The real Donkers then came up with our solution, the majestic Boomkin. Since I started this comic, I've been nagged to use the Boomkin plot, so here it is.

Part of my inspiration for this plot line/character development also comes from Penny Arcade. They had a shirt at one time, spoofing "The Godfather" with the "The Goldfarmer". So you can see how my mind works. Before you know it, Donkers was having people offed and driving through the streets of Stormwind with the The Sopranos Theme playing in the background. At least in my mind.

Long story short, this isn't the last we've seen of the Godgnome. Stay tuned, after this week I'm off on winter break so more comics should be flowing soon.

Let's see, I woke up this morning, gotta get myself a gun.

Episode 5: On In Game Protests...

So my guilt finally got the best of me and I finally made a new comic. Oh yeah #5. So the theme is a few weeks too late. Yeah I know. For the WoW layman, a couple members of the Shaman class started protesting the proposed changes to their class, among other things, in the latest patch to hit WoW. I came up with the plot back then, just never made it. Well here it is. I still think it's apt. Sums up my views on in game protests. Not to piss off the shaman community any more than necessary, but come on. There have got to be better things to do with your time. When I read that a group of shamans decided to roll new characters on a server that were anything but shamans, I was just a bit sad(der) for the WoW community. Then I realized they probably saw themselves like hippies in a commune fighting Big Blizz. The whole concept greatly amuses me. Now before I piss someone off, I do realize shamans have some legit issues. But acting immature and yelling as loud as you can is not the way to get what you want. Now sadly, changes were made and I have a bad feeling the WoW community may end up thinking this is the way to go to get what they want. Seriously guys, stop, think, go outside.

Of course we'll see how my tune changes if hunter's ever get a nerf that bad...

Hopefully I'll get you guys another comic by next week. No promises, but I hate letting you guys down. So stay tuned.

Until next time, sugar will kill you.

Where did all the comics go?

Sooo, my apologies for the lack of a new comic over all of last month. Can't say when the next one is coming, but hopefully soon. I am swamped right now with school work for finals, but hopefully that'll ease up soon. I have some ideas floating around, now I just need the time to make the comic. Hopefully I'll have one soon. Thanks for bearing with me and stay tuned.
