|#209||Games Without Frontiers||This kind of wraps up the Virtual Gaming experience for Jerry and Spacebot -- these guys and girls are absolutely crazy, or are they? And is that Brain Slug that tries to eat Jerry's head really dangerous, or just a hologram? Guess we'll never find out. Looks like they lost their AGP before they won any.
Next week, we'll see more places of future Metrotopia. Next up is a guest strip, though.
Tonight, we listened to the album "Day & Age" by The Killers. They combine several influences, e.g. Coldplay, U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers(!), and Radiohead. Interesting record.
|Astronaut at the VG Center; Fairy at the VG Center; Fallout, Jerry; Knight at the VG Center; Red Robot at the VG Center; Spacebot 4000; Wizard at the VG Center|
|#200||Happy Anniversary With 199 Comics!||Here it is! One of the largest EBC strips to date. Photoshop automation and some Python scripting helped making the giant wall of comics (EBC #1 through #199), while our heroes were added by traditional digital drawing.
Please be patient, it may take a while to load.
200 strips are done, so let's raise our glasses for the next 200.
See you tomorrow!
|Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000|
|#199||??? (please read the description)||What the hell is going on?! Has someone hacked our server and uploaded something even worse than our first comic? That's disturbing... even more disturbing than the fact that we're only one comic away from #200.
I think I'll upload the anniversary strip right after this one; it will definitely be better than this rubbish.
|Annoyed Grandma; Fat Flap; Fez Chicken; Ghost Face; Pigcow; Scarecrow Guy; Superbowl Snobble|
|#160||Be It Guest Strip Or Not||Welcome to the largest EBC strip ever! It's a day later than announced because it took some time to finish it.
NOTE: The image is too large to be displayed on the iPhone (and maybe other devices), so here's a mobile version. Use your browser's Back Button to return to the site. In the long run, I'll add a mobile site, but for now, this workaround will have to do. [UPDATE: There's an optional feature now for a comic to consist of more than one image. I used it here, and this should fix the problem for now.]
I asked my son to do a guest strip, but he didn't have an idea. So we asked ourselves what kinds of guest strips our friends from Metrotopia would create, and here are some of the results. Leon created all the guest strips, while I drew the background story.
First in line is Jerry Fallout who shows us a fine day he spent at the Metrotopia Zoo with his best friend, Spacebot 4000. As it seems, he's not that into orthography.
Next up is Jimmy Nesbitt a.k.a. Pimple Faced Teen with a classic hero story featuring... himself. Back in EBC #95, his name was given as "Nigel Nesbitt." Well, his full name is James Nigel Nesbitt, jr., and while he prefers to be called Jimmy in the Standard EBC universe, he goes by Nigel in the Alternate or "What If" universe. Fun fact: Once P.F.T. has mucles, he doesn't have pimples any more.
The third strip is by our hero Hype... ehm, Clyde Barker. He wants to distract his fellow Metrotopians from Hyperman's true identity. But must the glovemaker really be the one they're looking for if his fingerprints are found on the gloves he made?
Fat Zap buys a pencil and other equipment at the local toy store, and then he depicts himself as a racing dog who wins the race and gets a large bone. Well done, Fat Zap!
The last one is by the Weather Guys who introduce their latest member, Plane. They actually use Plane's condensation trails to draw their own, very Shakespearean, guest strip.
Some day, we might actually do a real Guest Strip Contest -- keep your eyes open.
|Barker, Clyde; Cloud #1; Cloud #2; Cloud #3; Fallout, Jerry; Fat Zap; Lightning; Pimple Faced Teen; Sun|
|#144||Side Effects May Include Gender Changes...||WHAT THE HECK?! Why are they at home again? And why has Jerry turned into a woman?
Let's find out on Monday; next up is a What If that I think I'll do after a good night of sleep.
BTW it's fun to finally draw Spacebot in his original appearance again :).
|Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000|
|#137||Blackest Knight -- 137||Today is the 42nd(!) birthday of Monty Python, so I simply had to throw in this one, especially with the number 137 (the real 1337 is still a few years away, though).
Sorry I couldn't finish a comic yesterday; it took quite some time to scan Leon's 24-Hour comic.
|#101||[Untitled]||A silly re-enactment of EBC #1, starring: Spacebot 4000 as Doodle #1, Jerry Fallout as Doodle #2 (from Doodle Jump), Fat Zap as The Poodle, and Pimple Faced Teen as The Noodle.||Fallout, Jerry; Fat Zap; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#29||LOL, ROFL, and ROFLMAO||A happy family -- LOL and ROFL are brothers, and ROFLMAO is their dad. They don't seem to agree on what to do. And what is Fat Zap doing there?||Fat Zap; LOL; ROFL; ROFLMAO|
|#26||Owsers and Ants||One more of those silly rhyming nonsense comics.||Bowser; Firefox; Pants; Trousers|
|#18||Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder||Well, who's handsome, and who's not? It depends on your particular frame of reference. Ms. Monster might like to marry the Handsome Guy, while other ladies might prefer the Less Handsome Guy.||Handsome Guy; Less Handsome Guy|
|#16||Sights and Sounds||Short EBC without any characters, but lots of sound FX.|
|#7||Heores, Inc.||An unnamed guy whishes that some Superheroes were there. First EBC in HD (16:9) and first appearance of Fat Zap.||Batman; Curly Guy; Fat Zap; Superman|

|#3||Le Gorilla Electronique||A French-speaking, electronic gorilla has a special interest in bananas.||Banana; Gorilla Electronique, Le|
|#2||[Untitled]||RM01 wants to be a punk rocker, but the real punk rocker doesn't take him seriously.||Punk Rocker; RM01|
|#1||[Untitled]||Some rhyming guys. When I was drawing this one, I had no idea it would become part 1 of a webcomic series.||Doodle #1; Doodle #2; Noodle; Poodle|
