Mystique. Allure. Too much information. September 13, 2011 Posted by Mookie
This joke has been around for a very long time, and every so often I like bring it up to keep it going as a running gag. I still think it's funny.

It was also nice to revisit Gregory's past, even just for two panels. Remembering his days as the crippled healer, then as the bulkier "superhealer," and that he does have a thing for women in conservative clothing who are vixens underneath (i.e. Pamela and Jayden).

Don't forget that I'll be at INTERVENTION this weekend! It's going to be a blast.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Please hammer don't hurt 'em. September 12, 2011 Posted by Mookie
As you can see, the comic has updated on time and that means I survived my bachelor party over the weekend. Now all I have left to deal with is the wedding itself. I'm not panicking at all. Nope. Not me. Eep.

I have another exciting weekend ahead of me! This weekend is the second coming of INTERVENTION where I have been graciously invited to return as a guest! I'll be doing panels, selling books and generally being happy to be back at this really fun convention. So be sure to stop by and say "hi" if you're in the area!

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Ah. September 9, 2011 Posted by Mookie
I don't think polyamory and cross-dressing counts as the depraved and decadent behavior that Taz and Randy were telling Gregory about, but I think they illustrate the point in today's comic nicely. Going to see actors screw on stage, though? That may be more decadent than depraved.

I have some, ahem, wedding related stuff to take care of this weekend (i.e. my bachelor party) so there may be a delay in the update of Monday's comic. It's unlikely, but just in case I have a weekend that's comparable to The Hangover I figured I'd give you fine folks a heads-up.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a great weekend!
The ones you least expect. September 8, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Looks like Gregory's having an "it's always the ones you least expect" moment in today's comic.

Books are back up for sale in the SEER'S CATALOG. I tried some different layouts for the store but none of them have satisfied me yet. So instead of waiting to find a design I liked I decided to stick with the old, clunky layout for now.

After recovering from the joy of a new issue of ATOMIC ROBO I went on to read some of the "new 52" DC Comics. It's still too early to tell how this reboot is going as far as the quality of the books/stories go, but so far I can say this: It's not as good as I hoped, but not as bad as I feared. Going to keep giving these comics a fair shot, though.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
What (doesn't) happen in Erossus... September 7, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Gregory's disappointment in the last panel sounds like the frustration felt by that talking dog in the Ultimate Dog Tease. At least it does in my mind. I, for one, would be equally heartbroken if someone took me to Las Vegas and we didn't do... well, anything that Vegas is famous for.

I couldn't get into the graphic novels, but I finally watched Scott Pilgrim vs. The World for the first time last night and I loved it. I particularly enjoyed the evil vegan psychic bassist. I've been a vegan for close to fifteen years and I'm still waiting on my superpowers! Although I've always suspected there were vegan police lurking around somewhere...

Heading to the comic shop today to finally pick up the new ATOMIC ROBO as well as give the already infamous "DC Reboot" a fair try. Wish me luck.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out!
Back home again. September 6, 2011 Posted by Mookie
As you can see, the comic has updated normally over the Labor Day weekend and everyone was spared crummy filler.

Gregory's been itching to go to Erossus ever since the Ecstasy & Evil storyline. Now the less magical but considerably more metal Deegan sibling will get his wish! But you know what they say about being careful what you wish for...

I was in Maine over the holiday weekend with my fiancee and my very close friends. I went swimming, concocted vegan-friendly s'mores over an open flame, and had some of the best stargazing nights ever. And when it was finally over I was sad to leave, but I am glad to be home.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Upside the head. September 2, 2011 Posted by Mookie
For those who may have forgotten (and I wouldn't blame you if you did), Dominic did have an "O woe is me" monologue back during the Battle for Barthis, and it was Szark who talked him up from it. I guess you could say Szark performed a preemptive strike in this case.

I think everyone needs a friend who's willing to smack you upside the head when you're feeling sorry for yourself. Granted, there are some very valid times to feel down, but it's good to have a friend who knows the difference between genuine regret and unnecessary self-pity. And in those latter times, sometimes a thwack upside the head is just what you need to snap you out of a funk.

I'm leaving for a long Labor Day weekend today. There should be an update Monday, whether it's a comic or crummy filler. Come back Monday and find out!

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a nice long weekend!
Uncertainty. September 1, 2011 Posted by Mookie
It's been a little while since we've seen "the Gray," and it looks like Dominic is also getting subjected to a bit of a cliffhanger. Chance made his choice. He simply chose not to announce it.

It's September already? Man. Well, that means that my impromptu summer sale in the SEER'S CATALOG is over. I've suspended book orders until next week, as I'm leaving for a long Labor Day weekend tomorrow and there are some things I want to adjust before any more books are sold.

There may or may not be a comic on Monday, since it is a holiday here and I'll be traveling. If not, there will be crummy filler of some sort but there will also be a double-sized comic on Tuesday to make up for it.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Hitting the shelves again. August 31, 2011 Posted by Mookie
This is the first time Heliner's first name has been mentioned since this story began.

Also, for the first time in weeks I'll be heading to the comic shop. Not because I'm eager to see the first inklings of the already notorious "DC reboot," but because (as of this writing) the new ATOMIC ROBO will hit the shelves.

While I'm there I'll likely browse through the superhero books I've stopped collecting, just to see what I've been missing. Though I'm admittedly not concerned about the outcomes of Flashpoint or Fear Itself, I do miss some of the team books I was reading (i.e. Thunderbolts and Avengers Academy), and Marvel's cosmic superhero stuff was a lot of fun. We shall see.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
History repeating. August 30, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Big comic today. Today's strip needed to cover the necessary ground while still mirroring a previous vision almost exactly. I tried fitting this in to eight panels with no luck. So, big comic today. I do hope you folks like it.

Otherwise, it's a slow news day. So I'll put up a couple of links to fill the space up.

Mastodon's new songs sound more like stripped-down rock and roll than heavy metal, and that's fine by me. Ther new album is (hopefully) going to kick major ass.

If you signed up to play League of Legends via a referral from my account be sure to play until level 5! And if you're playing already, be sure to tell people who you refer to the game to do the same! That's when the referral rewards can be redeemed.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Come on, Irene. August 29, 2011 Posted by Mookie
For those who may have forgotten this little detail, Celesto did use a fake name to trick the Masters family. As to Cyrus Morgan's connection to the Masters family, that is still a mystery... but probably not for long.

UPDATE: Ignore this next part of the news post. Nothing happened where I lived. It rained and was windy. The end.

This news post was written the day before hurricane Irene was scheduled to reach New England. I'm not sure if we'll lose power over the weekend or for how long it'll be out if we do, so tomorrow's comic may be delayed. Check my Twitter feed for the latest updates if you don't see a comic on Tuesday.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Black eyes and nosebleeds. August 26, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Today's comic begs a couple of questions, if you're the type to wonder about this sort of thing. Where is Celesto? And, judging by the blood on his shirt and on the floor, how long has he been trying to get that nosebleed under control?

If you live on the east coast of the US, like I do, you've probably heard about Hurricane Irene's impending arrival this weekend. I don't know how hard it's going to hit the New England area, which is where I live, so it may affect the updating of the comic. I'll likely have Monday's strip done before the hurricane arrives, but if there are power outages in my area there may be delays. I'll keep folks posted as best I can over the weekend via my Twitter feed.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on, and have a safe weekend!
Beasts all around. August 25, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Whew. Yesterday was a busy day. Lots of wedding stuff taken care of, so that feels nice. It's almost enough to make me remember that Dominic and Luna still have a wedding of their own to plan.

But then again, I don't have to deal with an imbalanced chaos oracle, a horror from the city-plane/engine of reality, and the country's most powerful political and magical figure all trying to ruin my day.

There are some nights, however, that I would gladly face them instead of the crappy neighbors who have effectively turned my apartment building into their new dorm. Grr.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Now it's your turn to have bleedy-face. August 24, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Whenever Dominic really exerts himself on the psychoplanes he usually ends up with a pounding headache and a bleeding face in the real world. Celesto, on the other hand, has had a relatively effortless time of making people explode and stirring up planar chaos.

I think it's nice to see the tables turned for once.

If you've sent me a friend request in League of Legends and it seems like I haven't accepted it, it's because I simply can't. I've reached the 300-friend-limit and I'm incapable of adding anyone else. But if you'd like to give this fun, free game a try, sign up via a referral from my account!

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Domestication is metal. August 22, 2011 Posted by Mookie
This weekend I went to our wedding shower. You know you're getting older and more domestic when you get excited about a new set of kitchenware. But, in my defense, it was a set of really sharp and awesome knives.

And a ninja blender. Literally.

Thanks to all of you who signed up to try League of Legends via a referral from me! I hope you're enjoying the game as much as I am. If not, at least wait until you get to level 5 to come to that conclusion. Otherwise my blatant addiction to referral rewards (i.e. free stuff) won't be fed.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
