I've had a nice time watching the first two series of Reboot in migraine-inducing fuzz-o-vision, but my attempts to do anything more constructive have rather gone by the wayside. Well, OK, I did colour in this week's strip -- but it's a bit of a half-hearted effort. Instead of Mr Chan's Story or the one about pizza and lonely ghosts or Betfred, the Bonus King, I just go on about my ongoing wardrobe crisis. Oh well, it's universal, I suppose.

Other, even more vital tasks (I've not washed up since Sunday's smoked eel chowder, for example) have seen even less progress. Call a man about getting a quote for some drain repairs? Nope. Send off the package to Vic and family ... er, no. Hoovering? Ah-hahahaha.

Ho hum. Megabyte (the main villain) has just gone into rapid expansion mode (which means he's reminding me even more than usual of cloudhigh). Any minute now it'll explode into (admittedly very well animated) muscles and teenage angst and become a whole lot less fun ... still pretty, but, urgh, the testosterone...

I'm also messing around with methods of working faster -- of folding several stages together so I can tell some longer stories. Something a bit different. So far I'm pretty pleased with the results. Now, if only I could crack the whole just wanting to sleep for a month problem ...

I loved Reboot before they rebooted it. Hex was my favorite baddie-turned-semi-goodie.

>>Brendan McCarthy
Well you learn something new. I HATED his work when he arrived in 2000AD. At the time I was far too much of clean lines Bolland boy for his "hippy-style".

How times change! ;@)

ha!
... Brendan McCarthy's covers and centre-page spreads were a big factor in keeping me into 2000AD ... at times back then it was something of a fashion mag, which I really liked ...

I still get it (and sometimes wonder why) although I now have to fight my 2 sons to read it first!

Clint Langley's work on Slaine has been beautiful recently, but not a lot else has jumped out at me apart from the Modern-Horror story Cabalistics Inc

I relate to your wardrobe crisis. Hmm... shall I wear the sparkly silver cardy or the sparkly pale green cardy over the orange dress and silver trousers?

which would be the most authoritative
... which would best convey a sense of quiet reliability?

Actually, I have a sombre dark green jacket that I only haul out for such meetings. Just the one. It must be looking a bit dated now I think.

I relate to your strip, not that meetings are a problem, but there are glum things like funerals to be thought of on occasion. You'd think having goth tendancies it wouldn't be a problem, but one can't wear corsets and glow trim cyber pants to such things.

The odd thing about funerals (I've noticed) is that dress codes seem to vary without warning. I've certainly turned up to a couple recently (both for elderly people) in a respectable black or charcoal suit, only to find people far older than me wearing beige (!). Hrmph. And I'm not talking the sort of funeral where people were asked to avoid funereal colours either, because I sure wouldn't have been wearing black then, particularly for the one which was on one of the hottest days of the year when the temps were way over 30 celsius!!

My clothes are approaching that point.
I'm encouraging it, though.

hmmm
I have this ongoing theory that these innocent-looking posts are being used as a flag for a program/person posting spam. It'd be so nice if I wasn't right.
