Comics tagged "What If"
|#215||What If Metrotopia Had A Zombie Apocalypse||It's just as horrible as these things usually get. And the only one who might help find a cure has been infected as well, holding Spacebot's severed head.
This one was actually drawn a few weeks ago and scheduled as the next "What If" strip.
|Boldface, Terry; Dr. Mysterious; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#205||What If EBC #186 Was Drawn Like EBC #3?||EBC #186 -- the original comic
EBC #3 -- for reference of the style applied here
EBC #6 -- first appearance of Jerry and Spacebot
|#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|
|#195||What If Pimple Faced Teen Worked In A Fancy Restaurant?||We all know that Jimmy Nesbitt works at the Burger Bar, among other things. But what if he were a waiter in a very fancy restaurant instead? Well, see for yourselves.||Pimple Faced Teen; Restaurant Guest|
|#175||What If Jerry & Friends Were Into Gothic Rock?||Well, that's what Jerry, Spacebot, and Jimmy would look like. Although generally a Metal kind of guy, I occasionally like to listen to music like that (and during my early adolescence I liked it even more -- wow, that's more than 20 years ago now).||Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#165||What If Jerry And Spacebot Were Toys||A famous scene from Pixar's "Toy Story," re-enacted by Jerry Fallout and Spacebot 4000 as a classic Cowboy Action Figure and a Toy Robot.
See you guys on Monday!
|Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000|
|#155||What If Media Companies Treated Theaters Like YouTube||This is kind of a sequel to EBC #125. The absurdity of media companies' customer-unfriendly behavior knows no limits.
As the Halloween specials are over, I reverted the site's theme back to normal. Next up is a Christmas theme that will be used at some point next month.
See you tomorrow with a new story from Ancient Rome!
|Barker, Clyde; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#145||What If Jerry And Spacebot Were At Home In Metrotopia Right Now? (well, I think they are, actually)||The time travel adventure started in June, and for them, not many days have passed since then. And of course, they'll make sure to come home a few minutes after they left so that nobody will notice their absence.
This comic is in solidarity to people around the world who are fed up with brutal capitalism, with the rich getting richer and richer while the poor and the middle class get poorer and poorer. The #occupywallstreet movement started it all, inspired by earlier protests in North Africa, Spain, Israel and other places: people worldwide are beginning to be sick of "saving" banks and billionnaires while having to take 2-3 jobs to get along (if they even get a job in the first place). From New York, the movement has spread across the country and the world.
While the "Tea Party" still rebels in favor of the greedy and decadent 1%, more and more people are coming to their senses! Keep it up!
|Fallout, Jerry; Fat Zap; Hyperman; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#135||What If The Burger Bar Ran Out Of Burgers?||... well, it wouldn't be a Burger Bar any more, but merely a Bar, right?
BTW: I finally added a favicon to the EBC site, a cute little Spacebot :)
I'm really looking forward to drawing a 24-hour comic, starting tomorrow -- see news post below or News archive.
|Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen|
|#125||What If Media Companies Treated Music Like Movies And TV?||They actually make dubbed versions of stupid pop songs, and musicals of course. But I've never ever heard a dubbed Metal song. There's a great German Metal band called J.B.O., and they do German cover versions of English Metal songs, but with special, funny lyrics -- for example, "Symphony of Destruction" by Megadeth becomes "Symphonie der Verstopfung" ("Symphony of Constipation").
But of course, that's not what this comic is about. It's about stupid media companies who don't want my money -- they won't allow me to buy movies and TV series in the original language until the dubbed German version is out, even if I prefer the original.
By the way, "Ucayali" is one of the rivers that make up the... Amazon!
|#115||What if DC Comics became completely like Marvel?||Take a look at this little cover gallery to see what DC would be like if they became Marvel all the way:
They still would do a complete reboot using their most important characters, but in an additional/alternate "Ultimate Universe." So the first cover is "Ultimate Superman," of course.
Next up is a "Fear Itself" tie-in miniseries featuring Flash.
Then we have a "What If Classic" trade paperback, apparently featuring "What if Bruce Wayne became Superman?"
The last one is "House Of S," a story that shatters a large part of the DCU as we know it.
Disclaimer: If you've been reading EBC for a while, you know I really like both Marvel and DC. Over the years, both have had great stories, artwork, and characters, and some of the finest writers and artists have worked for one or even both of them.
See you guys on Monday with more adventures from Ancient Rome.
|#105||What If Jerry And Spacebot Were Snobbles?||Friday's comic, finally online on Sunday (sorry!).
If you're not sure what a snobble is, check out the original character description. Tomorrow, our regular story arc continues.
|Snobby Fallout; Space Snobot 4000|
|#95||What If P.F.T. Gained Powers?||Let's never forget: He's just a teenager, and he didn't have a power/responsibility key experience like Peter Parker.||Pimple Faced Teen; Watcher, The|
|#85||What If EBC Were A Manga?||Remember to read it from right to left!
I've used Google Translate for the Japanese dialog, so please excuse me if there are any mistakes. The dialog reads as follows:
Jerry: I'm bored. Spacebot: Let's go get some ice-cream. Jerry: [smiling] Yes. -- [frowning] No money. Both: TV!
|Manga Jerry Fallout; Manga Spacebot 4000|
|#75||What If RM01 Were Jerry Fallout's Best Friend?||Their relationship seems to be a little different from the one between Jerry and his original best friend, Spacebot 4000, because RM01 is an even greater prankster than Jerry.
The continuity of our current story arc will resume on Monday. I want as many strips ending with a 5 as possible to be "What If" comics.
|Fallout, Jerry; RM01|
|#45||What If Mushroom George Had A Different Nationality?||Do you remember Mushroom George from comic #15? Well, he seems American although he might be Japanese as he's related to Nintendo. Here's what he would look like, sound like, and sometimes drink if he were from somewhere else in the world (or solar system).||Georges des Champingnons; Giorgio di Funghi; Mantar Georg; Martian George; Schwammerl Schorsch; Yun Qiaozhi|
|#35||What If Jerry Fallout Worked At The BB?||A bad thing to say to a customer. A worse thing to say to the manager.||Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen|
|#25||What if Mr. Iceblock were the archenemy of SuperTux||Have you ever checked out SuperTux? It's an open source sidescrolling jump'n'run game, similar to the classic Super Mario games, available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X and starring Tux, the Linux Penguin.||Mr. Iceblock; Penny; Tux|
