|#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|
|#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.

|#152||Halloween Special, Part 3/5||This is part 3 of our five-part Halloween special, featuring the Weather Guys and the reason for the untimely winter onset on the US East Coast.||Cloud #1; Cloud #2; Cloud #3; Snobble; Sun|
|#58||True Story||True story, really: The last two and a half months, there was almost no rain at all (maybe three or four rainy days altogether), and now it's raining like the Clouds want to meet their quota for this quarter within two days. Introducing Lightning, a new Weather Guy. He seems nice enough, but at about 20,000 ampères, you wouldn't want to shake his hand.||Cloud #1; Cloud #2; Cloud #3; Lightning; Sun|
|#50||Happy 50th Issue!||Finally, a (small) anniversary: EBC #50! So everyone is here who has been featured in this webcomic from #1 through #49. Most of them are even in order of appearance, just a few have been put where they seemed to fit best. The Weather Guys, of course (also featuring in yesterday's comic), are on top of the whole picture, in the sky. And they're all celebrating and having fun.
All guest strip characters have been drawn by Leon because he did these guest strips in the first place. That's why some characters are there more than once (as you may have seen, they also appear twice in the character list, once as "$characterName" and once as "Guest $characterName." And, of course, those who have more than one identity appear twice (such as Hyperman/Clyde Barker or RM01/Chief RM01).
Have fun, and I'll see you on Monday with the conclusion of the "To Be Continued" story arc from comics #47 and #48.

|#49||Cloud Computing||Hey, it's the Weather Guys! We haven't seen them since EBC #19. I've been doing some research on Cloud Computing the last few days, and so this one pretty much wrote itself.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's "Anniversary" comic #50... you might see some more guys you haven't seen in a while.
