Troop 142 – I am Disgusted!

Filed under: ACT-I-VATE,Troop 142 — Mike @ 10:34 am

It’s Friday, and I’ve got four new Troop 142 pages posted. This seems to be becoming a pattern, so maybe I ought to just commit to updating once a week.

In this scene we see the two Davids escorting Zack over to the Nurse’s office after Zack fell off the Monkey Bridge. This sequence deserves a little “NSFW” warning, I think, just for language.

In related news, I just wanted to point out that I am cross-posting Troop 142 to the ACT-I-VATE webcomics collective. I post updates every Tuesday. I’ve been putting up large chunks in an effort to get both sites on the same page. Maybe when I’ve caught up on AIV, that might be a good time for me to make Tuesday my updates day, and post new pages to both sites. It feels a little clumsy posting at different rates right now, but I think it’s all worthwhile. There’s definitely folks who’re seeing the comic over at AIV who hadn’t been seeing it when it was buried over here on my website.

A short break…

Filed under: ACT-I-VATE,Jack & Max — Mike @ 1:28 pm

I’m putting my serialized comic, Jack & Max Escape From the End of Time, on hiatus for the month of August, planning to return sometime in September. I need to spend a little time with the script, and away from the drawing table. I will post announcements about it’s return date once I figure all that out.

Apologies for the small update, but last week was killer, with Passover, Easter, and an unfortunate bout of food poisoning (I do not recommend the “Potage” soup from the Red Hook Fairway!).

In more pleasant news, I was happy to see this morning the first review (brief as it is) of Ace-Face, over on the Inkstuds blog. As mentioned in the review, Robin will be interviewing me later today, though the audio won’t be going online for a few weeks. Rest assured, I will link to that audio once it goes live.
