#202 – Muggers

with 5 comments

Guys can get beat up for their money just as much as women.

If you’re interested in seeing how I make a comic strip, I’ve put together a little step-by-step of my process. Check it out, I say!

The weekend is looming just around the corner. I see a lot of sleep in my future days. What are your plans?

New theme for MyLifeComics

with 4 comments

Do not be alarmed, readers. I’m trying out a new–and more colorful–theme here. Because of the length and size of my comic strips I can only use a few of the offered themes at WordPress. I think this one makes it easier for reading text and frankly just gives the blog a bit more pizazz. Not to get that word mixed up with pizza or za, that is. Opinions? Like or hate it?

To make this a somewhat interesting non-comic post, my Snapple fact for the day:

#123 – Beavers were once the size of bears.

Huh, that’s frightening.

I drive a horse. Jealous?

I’d write more, but I watched the first episode of Bionic Woman last night and it made me 127% more stupid. Gah!

#200 – Scrabble Queen

with 8 comments

Holy spinach and artichoke dip, Batman! We’ve hit the 200th comic here at MyLifeComics. Amazing, huh? Feels like only yesterday I was getting excited at the big 1-0-0. I guess time flies when you’re drawing a comic strip five damn days a week?

Speaking of that, I have a favor to ask of y’all. If you like my daily comics and what I’m doing here, why not post a link to me or let your online friends know about the site? If you hate what I’m doing here and think a no-legged sheepdog could do a finer job of comic-making, by all means let people know that as well, but still link here so everyone can see to your claim? I post five days a week, only having missed a few days here and there. So, your efforts aren’t wasted. I do deliver. Anyways, I’m only interested in this as I’d love for my readership to grow. Hopefully you would too. So send them here:

And have a happy humpday, everybody!

#199 – No Good

with 9 comments

Hey, you! Want to be an unsuccessful cover band? Oh yah? Well, it’s real easy. Just follow these five steps perfectly and you’ll soon be on your way to Crapville in no time at all…

1. Do not perform a soundcheck before the show. That way the feedback from your guitar amps will overpower the microphone and drums, leaving nothing but a wave of muffled noise to swarm at your audience.
2. Open with a song no one will recognize. I mean, being a cover band is more than just doing the hits. Why not play songs nobody likes at all? Yeah!
3. In general, suck.
4. Think you’re awesome when you know you’re not. Nothing says good music like an ego the size of dino droppings.
5. Repeat Step 3 diligently.

#198 – Family Photo

with 6 comments

Granted, I sweat just from trying to open the lid to a jar of pickles. No, for reals.

Oh em gee, tonight is the second season premiere of Heroes! So excited! And then right after it is Chuck, a show that I’m willing to give my time to in hopes that’ll it’ll be a fun romp through retail sales and governmental kablooie! Since this is like debut week on every network, what shows are y’all going to check out? If any of you say Cavemen I’m punching you in the face. Through the Internet. Zing!

#197 – Heroes Love

with 6 comments

And just in time, too! The new season starts this upcoming Monday and boy am I excited. Here’s a little preview of what’s to come:

Also, I only drew the heroes that I like, and they’re in the order of how much I like them to how least I like them. Yes, I’m more of a Peter fanboy than a Hiro fanboy. According to another trailer for Season 2, it looks like Pete survived that big explosion. If so, rock on! And good-bye big meanie Nathan!

Who is your favorite hero?

Have a nice weekend.

#194 – The Peoplemover

with 9 comments

Funnily/sadly, this is probably how I’d handle a similar situation in real life.

It doesn’t feel like Tuesday to me at the moment. I’m always so confused after taking a day off. All I know is that there’s only four days of work this week, so yah, that’s good. I don’t have much to say. And I think 90% of my readers–all ten of you–are on vacation this week. So I’m thinking y’all won’t have much to say either.
